sick of the new intrusive ads on the mx player? me too!
Here is an old version of mx player 1.8.10 free where ads were still non-intrusive and where the video player is still functional
This apk i have uploaded was restored from titanium backup and created using apk extractor.
enjoy!

Those 'bug fixes' (I personally cannot tell which bugs are fixed) are not good enough reasons for me to tolerate the intrusive ads.

There is also APKMirror, which hosts more builds and is also reliable: http://www.apkmirror.com/uploads/?q=mx-player

Yesterday I wasted much time scanning for malware because of these ads. The Clean something ad saying my phone was full took up the whole screen and didn't have an x in the corner to close it. So instead of opening the file I have to figure out how to get rid of the thing plus make me think I've got some kind of virus. Isn't some kind of small banner enough?

It will be helpful to reduce such ads.

OK. I'll do that next time it happens

Wow. This kind of bs advertising is precisely why I dumped es file Explorer. Seems once devs get market penetration, they have no problem hosing their users for the sake of making $$$.

Devs also has life. They need some funds to maintain the development of the app. As android is extremely bloated with piracy, it's very difficult to get the necessary funds from pro version itself. So, we have forced to show some more ads

We are hearing to the users. We will try to further optimise the app to show ads without affecting user experience.

If you found any ads, that may not be suitable / with some abusive contents, you can report it here. We will take the necessary actions.

When I heard of 1.8.17 update that disabled full screen ads, I updated it and it went fine, just for a few moments. The next time I reinstall the 1.8.17, the full screen ads appeared again, more frequent, even after updating to 1.8.20 either via Play or APKMirror; happen everytime MX Player window is opened or when exiting the player, forces me to switch to 1.0.7 Beta APK for Indian markets. At least, it's still enjoyable without the annoying full screen ads.

EDIT: And I started to getting full screen ads on the beta APK. What a shame.

Thirumalai, thanks for explaining. I uninstalled your MxPlayer and gave one star on Play store for the annoying ad. Now I'm googling for patched version of Pro version. Thanks!

There should be limit for greed or else these kind of things will happen.
