HTC has been one of the most prominent OEMs to adopt the Play Store as its apps' update ground, decoupling them from the software and thus making it possible to update them separately and regardless of firmware versions, operator approval, and so on. The latest app to join the independent fold is HTC's Video Player.

This is the same video player that's built inside HTC's Sense UI layer, with multiple format decoding, gesture controls (two-finger swipes act as FF and RW for example), streaming, still image capturing, and subtitle support. The player also allows a few simple editing tweaks like trimming and playback speed adjustment for slow-motion videos (on select phones).

There's nothing else to see here, but the Play Store listing should make it easier and faster for HTC to roll up bug fixes, improvements, and new versions of the Video Player. You can check out the app through the widget below or over at APKMirror.
