So here’s a list of top 10 best video player for windows phone that can play almost any video formats without slowing your phone.
1. Moliplayer Pro
If you enjoy watching videos on your Windows Phone but can’t stand the hassle and time to do “trans-coding”, MoliPlayer Pro is the right app for you. It is one of the top rated and best video player available for windows phone with frequent updates. To be honest it basically plays anything you throw at it whether it is .mkv or .avi.
2. VLC Media Player
VLC media player is a free, open-source and best media player for windows phone written by the VideoLAN project. VLC media player supports almost all popular audio and video formats.
Also, it has other features like file manager, inbuilt IP streaming support and Music player which makes VLC more powerful than Moliplayer. It is currently in the beta version which means there will be some minor bugs like sudden system crash, file detection error etc.
CCPlayer is an another best alternative of Moliplayer. CC media player supports most audio and video compression formats like .mkv, .avi, .flv video files and also supports a wide range of subtitle formats. Some of the popular subtitle formats supported by cc player are .SMI, SRT, ASS, SSA etc..
4. Best Player
Best Player is an another powerful media player for windows phone which supports almost any type of video formats. But the problem with this player is that it is not available for free download. On trial version, the video stops after 20 minutes. So to enjoy full feature of best video player you need to buy its pro version.
If you’re looking for a video player with a clean user interface, then Quickplay is the right one for you. One thing which I like most on this application is it’s built in audio player in where we can quickly search songs by genres, album, artist, etc. Quickplay play all video and music formats that are supported by Windows phone.
Supported Video Formats:– wmv, 3g2, 3gp2, 3gpp, adt, m4v, mp4v, mov, m2ts, asf, wm, mp4, wma, aac, 3gp, adts, ac3, wav, ec3,mp3,
6. MKV Viewer
It’s one of the best MKV player available on Windows phone store to download. Hereafter you don’t need to install any additional video codecs on your mobile to play MKV videos! Because MKV Viewer lets you play MKV videos of any size on your Windows mobile without slowing down your device.
Supported Video Formats:– .mkv
7. Video X Player
This media player supports all video formats that are supported by Windows Phone, which means any video that is not playing on default media player will not be played on Video X Player. It features easy to use interface in Metro style with three customizable sections from where you can quickly browse videos by folder name, favorites, etc.
Supported video formats: MKV, FLV
8. Video Explorer
This video player is a powerful media player with a lot of advanced features such as gesture controls, folders navigation, etc. Video Explorer lets you browse videos from folders like Camera Roll, Whatsapp folder and even from SD card!.
Supported video formats: .AVI, .MP4., .M4V, .WMV, 3GP, .MOV
9. MX Player
A popular Android video player “MX Player” finally arrives in the Windows Phone store but with the small subset of Android version. When comparing with MX Player(Android version), MX Player (Windows version) lacks many essential features such as S/W decoder, H/W media decoder, Substation Alpha subtitle support, etc.
The developers of MX player are working hard to bring the many features of MX Player Android version to the Windows mobile version.
Supported video formats: .MOV, .WMV, .M4V, .MP4, 3GP,.AVI
10. xVideo Player
xVideo Player is a lightweight video player with built-in file manager. This video player is not very powerful as the above-listed player because this player only supports very fewer video formats. The only reason I’ve included this video player on this list is because of its user-friendly interface and faster loading speed.
Supported video formats: .MP4, 3GP,.AVI, .MOV, .WMV
So which video player should you use?
You can use any of the above-listed players, but for maximum video compatibility, I recommend you to use Moliplayer or CCPlayer because they are the only players that currently support all popular video formats like Mkv, Avi, MOV, etc.
My favorite video players are Moliplayer, CCPlayer and
What about you?
