We are already familiar with the VLC that we are using on our windows machine for its smooth performance and universal format support. From the same developer, VLC for android is also available. VLC is a good option that can play famous video and audio formats. VLC also has some unique features including video playback with a link.

Kodi is not just a Video Player. Kodi is a media center for all the medias stored on your phone. Kodi is beautifully designed and also allows you to control all the media on the same place. There are extra programs which only supports the Kodi. Like, you can install YouTube, Hulu, and other famous media platform on your phone. The interface no doubt is beautiful but the buttons, font and other interactive space are too small for the smartphone. If you have a tablet, then you would have much better experience than a smartphone. You would get some of the powerful functions in Kodi. Must give a try. You would experience whole new thing.

You don’t need to store the videos in your device’s storage. It also supports Google Chromecast and other streaming devices. To use the Plex service, you have to create an account on Plex.

MoboPlayer is another amazing video player with some of the unique features. One of the best features which I liked the most is video editing within the player. There is little bit options that allows you to cut your favorite part of the video. You can also create gif by selecting the start and end point. You can save that gif right in your gallery. Screenshot, popup window, subtitles support, video resizing are some of the other features that make the MoboPlayer one of the best video players for android.
Wondershare Player (Free)
Wondershare is not just a video player but also a very good streaming device for your TV. You can cast the videos on wondershare player to TV using chrome cast. The controls of the wondershare are very limited and if you are in the US then you can watch videos on Vevo, TED, Hulu, ESPN etc. but you watch videos on YouTube within the player. You can also stream videos using a link same as VLC Media Player. Simple and user-friendly interface but lacks some of the basic features.
