Default which is the best video player for xperia s?

i am looking for best video player for my xperia s.i am using mxplayer right now.its a good player with sub support.but when playing videos on my built in xperia movie app i feel true surround sound after turning on surround sound mode on and dynamic normaliser on.then i played the same video on mxplayer i feel shame. mxplayer is nowhere near sony movie app.sound and video great on sony's movie app.is there any app can give great surround sound on my xperia s while watching videos.i tried h/w and s/w settings on mxplayer but both are not comparable with sony's surround sound mode.only disadvantage is sony's movie app is not support subtitle.so i am still using mxplayer for watching movies.is sony will add subtitle support?,i m sure my xperia s doesn't get any updates.anyway waiting for reply from experts........suggest me application with sub support and surround sound.

There is subtitle support in the Sony Movies app, at least in version 5.3.A.0.18. I don't know what kind of subtitles though, not .srt files. But I only tried the app on my Nexus 7 (it wouldn't be very different on my Xperia S since that's running CM11). It might refer to movies you rent from the Video Unlimited service. Anyway you can also just use MX Player and some kind of audio enhancer like V4A to change the sound. Just be aware that that "surround" effect you want is actually fake. Stereo is designed in such a way that when you're using headphones and watching a properly recorded video, your brain will process the sounds and and it will sound like surround. No need for software tricks.

I don't know, I never use audio enhancers and I also don't use stock ROMs anymore. Anyway audio enhancers should work for all your apps, so also MX Player. Look up Viper4Android Xperia S. There should be a thread in the Themes&Apps section.

I thought that in stock your equaliser audio settings work for all apps, the Walkman settings I mean. Can't you edit them from Settings/Sound or something.

Here you go - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2191223
As Redstarr1 has said, it's effects will be observable on all apps including MxPlayer, YouTube etc. I use Viper and I can confirm that it works with Mx
In fact Viper even works on kitkat. I'm using Walkman+Mx+Viper on Carbon Rom (4.4.2). So if in case you're sticking to the stock rom only for Sony's media apps, you can even give kitkat a try
