MX Player launches its free movie and TV streaming service in the US, UK, and 5 more countries

Most of us know MX Player as the best video player on Android, able to handle any file format, codec, bitrate, or subtitle extension. What you may have missed though is that MX also has an on-demand movie and TV show streaming service in India. It's now expanding availability to seven countries, including the US and UK.

MX Player beta picks up SMB support for network playback


MX Player extends Chromecast support to stream locally stored videos

Video players might be a dime a dozen on Android, but MX Player stood as one of the best in the early days, and it remains one of the most popular today. Even after Times Internet, a major Indian media company, acquired MX Player to give its own streaming services more visibility, it didn't prevent new features from being developed for local media. To that end, it's notable that you can now cast locally stored videos to Chromecast devices.

MX Player adds Chromecast support, but only for its online streaming content

If you're getting too giddy about the title of this post, I'll start by advising you to hold your horses.

[Deal Alert] MX Player Pro is down to 10 cents in a few countries

With the Play Store's new ability to have apps go free momentarily, we rarely feel the need to highlight the weekly 10-cent deals anymore because they do seem less appealing than something going completely free, so we've been posting them in our long deal roundup posts instead. But we're making an exception here because the 10-cent discount is hitting one app you might have on your watchlist and that hasn't dropped in price a single time in 5 years: MX Player Pro. (Actually it even rose in price from $5.22 to $5.99 in December 2015.)

MX Player adds back AC-3 codec support after the last Dolby Digital patent expired

If you remember back in 2014, MX Player had to take a forced step of removing support for the AC-3 codec (also known as Dolby Digital) from its app. That killed a bit of MX Player's magic: it had previously been popular as the app that could play any and every video you threw at it, no need to worry about formats and encodings, and regardless of whether or not your device's own video player could support them. After the removal, users had to download custom-built codecs and manually point the app toward them as a make-do solution to gain back AC-3 capabilities.
