A Brief & MX Player For Android

It’s been quite a long time since I have posted on this blog. I’m sorry about that. Life’s adventures have taken a great deal of my time. I have a few posts planned over the coming weeks.

I wrote a post a couple of years ago talking about my n900 – which was new back then. Times have changed and contracts have expired. I decided to switch over to Android – and my first Android phone is the Samsung Galaxy Note. I’m using the WordPress app and the Swype keyboard to write this post.

I’m also listening to Scarling’s album “So Long Scarecrow” via Spotify.

What I just mentioned above is a couple of things that have really set apart my experience with this phone and my old n900.

MX Player For Android

Until VLC comes around, MX is my go to player for playing videos on my note. While the note comes with a capable player, the MX can play more formats including one that is dear to me – the .rec format. It was also able to play .mp4 vids that I downloaded. These vids are apparently encoded differently than the ones I make.

So, if you have videos that don’t play right in your stock player, give MX a try.
