  1. Great post! Although i was wondering why PlayerXtreme is not in the list as its on of the best media players i have used. It plays all my files seamlessly well and supports all file formats without the need of any conversion. I have it on my iPhone at the moment but it supports all other iOS and Android devices as well. Due to these reasons i think this app deserves a mention.

  2. Great list! I guess KM Player would be a great inclusion in this list. It has some amazing features like library viewer and cloud storage support, subtitle, playback speed control and a lot more. I have been using it for a long time now, and I can say it is way better than some of the apps you have mentioned.
