What are the best media playing apps, of any variety and quickly why? If there is not one that does this well, list individual ones for music and video.

I am compiling a list of the best apps of each category, so leave your opinion and a quick reason to help out the community.

If the app costs $, be sure to say so!

edit: oops double post, please merge with http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=945642 if mod sees.

Best music player in my opinion is MIUI Music

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=854766

Very nice UI, downloads album artwork and song lyrics (with option to only download when connected to wifi)

Lyrics are highlighted in sync with the song.

The app is free.

For hardware video playback, mVideoplayer is great. Subtitle and automatic subtitle downloading, gesture support, loads of other features. Is free with ads, I think, but I have those blocked so I can't say for certain. For software video playback... Rockplayer, plays most files perfectly. Costs money though. There's also moboplayer which is free, it's in beta and kinda buggy though, but looks promising and plays most of my normally unsupported files well. Also it's not on the market.

As for music I like doubletwist, it's free and has a nice, clean GUI.

Vital Player

It's free, open almost all format, and is on the same level of Rock Player...

I go between doubletwist, zimly, MIUI, and everything else. For videos I usually go with rockplayer, mvideoplayer, or the default music app.
