VPlayer lacks some of the bells-and-whistles–and visual finesse–of MoboPlayer, but it has proven to be a popular video-player among the Android masses.It supports most of the common file-formats out there.And also it detects all the video-containing folders on your handset,the nice part of it is the ability to copy/paste links from YouTube and Vimeo to let you watch them directly in VPlayer, and save them for later.But it doesn’t let you organize or filter your content all that well.
RealPlayer is one of the stalwarts of the digital music space, and though you may have long-forgotten about its PC-based software, the Android app is actually really nice.It’s a video, photo and music-playing app, and to access the former you must cast your eye to the bottom where you’ll see an icon helpfully titled ‘Video’. You’re then presented with a folder view and ‘all’ view, which is a good thing.You can search for any video stored on your device, and – the icing on the cake here – any video on the Web too. RealPlayer is a great little all-in-one media app, but if you’re specifically looking to watch locally-stored videos, then you’d maybe be better with something a little more dedicated than this, such as MoboPlayer.
RockPlayer2 is an interesting one, as it both looks and feels different to the other video player apps out there.On launch, all your videos will appear in one central library. You can swipe to the right, where you’ll see a file-manager that lets you browse down through your various folders, and then there’s a playlist page, that lets you create multiple playlists to which you can add videos – you do so by long-pressing a video and select the context-specific menu option that pops down from the top of the screen.Throw into the mix network-streaming via the built-in UPnP client, the ability to create, move, delete and rename folders in your directory, and more, then it’s clear that RockPlayer2 is a very powerful app. That said, it will likely only appeal to power-users given that it’s not 100% intuitive to use – it does take a lot of playing around with it to figure out what’s what.
So, what's your video player apps on your Android?
