4) G Player


Another free media player available on the app market, G player is definitely one of the best media players for android out there. The main attraction is the floating window support which allows you to watch videos in resizable windows instead of the default full screen view with other applications. Therefore, you can easily multi-task.

It is very customizable with multiple themes so that you can give it a personal feel. It supports most video codecs and video formats. It supports subtitles too if you are watching any unknown languages. You can indulge in online streaming if you want to.

The Group Play feature allows you to stream videos to other people’s devices if you wish. There are some crash issues with some devices though and there have also been some reports of heavy RAM usage. That being said, it is still worth a try.

5) Mobo Player


This one is another veteran when it comes to the best media players for android. You can use the free version which comes with most of the features but you can buy the full version for $4.99 for some added functionality.

It is one the steadiest and stable media players which support almost all formats along with subtitle support. You can stream videos online. Some negative points are the out-dated interface which needs updating and some bugs found on specific devices.

6) mVideo Player


It is one the most popular best media players for android which is majorly die to its robust design. It may not have a lot of features but does the work of playing videos quite well.

You can easily get subtitles and create playlists if you want to binge watch videos. You can also bookmark your favourite videos to watch at a later time. You can get the full version for $3.49 which is quite steep but still worth a shot.

Only negatives are that it supports the already-supported codecs in your phone and the search feature is filled with bugs.

7) MX Player


Another very popular media player among android users, this one is very handy when you are using uncommon setups like XMBC or set top boxes. The features are more or less the same like the other ones but its experienced and veteran status makes it very popular.

You can get it for $5.99 which is quite steep but still given by the total downloads it has, I believe it is worth a shot.

The Subtitle Gestures feature is a nice touch as it adds an extra punch while watching videos. It also has Kids lock feature to keep your privacy safe and sound. Some devices may develop bugs from time to time.

8) Rock Player

Rock Player is very popular and one the best media players for android out there. It supports almost all codecs and formats and there is even a x86 version for those using such systems. It comes free with in-app purchases.

It also lets you stream and play music. You can share files to other users on both android and iOs platforms. It supports online streaming and subtitles.  The design may get the better if you sometimes due to the gaudiness. There are also some reported bugs on some devices.
