Reviewed in Tried and Tested Apps
This is an app that you need if you're constantly watching videos. To that end codecs are the stars. This app not only covers the essential need for a variety of decoders (hardware/software). But it gives you the freedom to change and customise just about every aspect of the the actual video player. From the load status colour to types of gestures available. If all that didn't convince you, remember, this is a summary. Just try it. But for me, I'm a simple man, I need it play any video or stream from any site. It does, and if I need to abruptly stop the video then just resume where I left it. Again, it does.
