Mobo Player - MP4 Video - 05-24-2011, 10:01 AM
I have constant problems with unreliability of the Streak's media player to always play videos or movies properly.
If I go to Gallery straight off, it plays well. But use some other Apps. and then try to play a video and it might not play the video, but put up a message and say, "Audio file only", and just play the sound.
So, I have just downloaded "Mobo" Player, and it works well (so far). It does not interfere with the stock player.
When you want to play a video/movie, an option comes up asking whether yot want Mobo Player to play it, or "Movies" (the stock player) to play it.
The volume control operates with an up gesture on the right of the screen, rather than the volume controls on top of the Streak.
So, here it is ....
Enjoy Your Video.The best video player on Android! Watch any of your videos on a phone without conversion, anytime and anywhere.

The drawbacks of Mobi Player and probably any supplementary player are,
1/ You can't go to Gallery and select a video/movie, without being offered the option of player you wish to use.
2/ If you choose Mobi Player, it can't play the video straight from Gallery, - it directs you to tell it which directory the video is in. So you are shown the directories on the phone (I think) and the SD card to direct it. It's very easy to see the SD card directory.
Movies and videos are likely to be on the SD card, so you touch "SD Card" and the names of the videos/movies are shown there. Touch one and it launches.
If anyone knows of a supplementary player that can play straight from Gallery, please let us know.
With Apps such as MSNBC and Motor Trends which offer a series of videos, and in the case of MSNBC offering the next video, I thought this Mobo Player would be problematic.
Surprisingly, each video does not ask you which Player you want to use. All works as before (normally) - and I have no idea which player is playing them.
The other good thing about Mobi Player are the control gestures, and the capability of being able to quickly play a video via it, when the stock player refuses to play video and only offers audio.
The only way to get back to playing your video that wouldn't play, with the stock player, was to totally reboot the phone, which takes a quarter of a bus journey - well several streets.
I don't know whether I imagined it, but I was surprised by the volume being delivered, but I am not sure whether with the quick check I made, that I was imagining it.
This is the video player Dell should have made the stock player!
