Default [APP] Moboplayer: the best video player for Android apk

I've paid for and used both rockplayer and vplayer. But rockplayer sucked on the droid x after version 1.2 and vplayer hiccups a little too often. Lately I've been using vitalpayer and soulplayer. Both are available for free from the market and actually seem better than both the paid rockplayer and vplayer.

Then I came across this new video player yesterday and I have to say, it's the best player I've tried. The UI is very slick and user-friendly, especially the file manager aspect. It also plays every file I've thrown at it (but haven't tried mkv's yet) and has both hardware and software decode mode. (Just remember to long press on video file to select software decode mode).

It's still in beta testing and says its limited to a certain number of testers but I was able to sign up directly from the app without issue. You have to provide an email address for testing purposes (I'm assuming) so if you're not comfortable with providing its, this app is not for you. But for me, it was a no brainer.

Awesome app.

MoboPlayer_v7_neon.apk

Should work on all high-end ARM V7 CPU Android devices

Would give credit but don't know who to give credit too. Will update when I do. Enjoy!

So, good chance this will become a paid app eventually?

Probably. But like I said, I've paid for several other players so, if it's as good as it been, I'll probably pay for this one as well.

i really liked this app.. high power rendering.. can render a mkv file of 180 mb and not too bad fps too for the same.. but the audio video sync is little buggy.. i think it needs to be fixed... else its a wonderful and the best app available as a multi format video player!!

Very nice player, best I'd ever tested. But I don't like the License violation of ffmpeg. :/

For you Reference, It supports low end devices as well,

http://www.moboplayer.com/moboplayer_en.html#download

It requires registration(closed beta). I tried it. It does not play wmv files and even HD flv file ( where vitalplayer plays it nicely )
But UI is appealing !

Wao..! This is much nicer than vPlayer.. in terms of UI. Like the vol and brightness control on the right and left side.. making tweaking them a breeze!

I was reluctant to try moboplayer because it requires registration. But rockplayer was made much worse since version 1.2, after part of the original team left for moboplayer. vplayer is now free for Chinese users but it has a lot of decoding problems and random crashes. UM Player (悠米解霸) is barely usable at all.

In my case, moboplayer has by far the best video decoding (smoothness and artifects) for universal players I ever used/tried, and the best file management (though still minimal):
moboplayer >> rockplayer (below 1.2) > rockplayer (1.2 and above) > vplayer >> umplayer

My only problem with moboplayer now is the forced update. I understand the reasons behind but it just don't feel good being forced. I'd rather pay a few bucks for peace.
