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.

Does the Pro version have ads? Your Google Play Store description says this:

This is the Ad-Free version of MX Player.

Is that still true, or does the Pro version also show ads now?

I told someone they were mistaken Mx Player Pro had ads, that maybe they were infected with malware. Has your ad policy with the Pro Player changed?

MX Player Pro version is still Ad-Free. In fact in 1.9.x versions the ad modules are removed from the Pro app.

Granted the ads are intrusive, but boycotting the app all together will hinder development of it in the future. If you truly find the ads that irritating but think the app is good enough to bother looking for an older version of it, then why not buy the pro version? is it really that expensive? wouldn't you want to be on the cusp of bugfixes ?
