The Android video player itself can play some formats of videos,but limited. And just run into an app occasionally in a tech site. Some one may be are using one of the media players like Doubletwistd media, Player MixZing Media Player, Meridian Media Player, Winamp Music Player etc. Now you have to consider this one.

While they have their disadvantage at the same time when they get advantage. For example, some don't get skins to choose from; some support limited video formats to play and so on.Today I would like to introduce a power media player for Android.

Did you heard of XBMC? When it talks to Xbox 360, all most everyone know about it. XBMC was originally created as a media center application for the original Xbox game console. But it is today officially available as a native application for Android, Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, iOS, and Microsoft Windows operating systems. It allows users to play and view most videos (wmv,mp4,mp3,swf,wma,mov,rmvb,flac,dvd,flv,avi,mkv etc), music, podcasts, and other digital media files from local and network storage media and the internet. See, is it powerful? One of XBMC's main features is its customizability. A variety of skins can change its appearance and various add-ons allow users to access online content on services such as YouTube, Spotify, Grooveshark and Pandora Radio. I am sure you will like these features greatly.

Before you download this app, please notice that Android device that doesn't include the NEON extension will run too slowly to be usable. So it's not suggest to be installed on these Android handset. If you want to know whether your device is supported, you can visit the XBMC for Android compatibility list.

So is this app attractive enough to make you use it? As it still a beta version, it may run slowly for the first time. After first run, it will run a bit faster.And XBMC for Android 4.2 is on the way. Anyone who want to try the fresh, fell free to click here to download or search XBMC android by Google to download.

Now I am testing,welcome to comment on this app if you tried.

A deep Android Lover :)

Still like the MX video player, often download youtube videos with this youtube downloader and then play it via MX video player on my htc one x. Really fun and enjoyable. Like my phone very much.
