    Hey Vishal…nice post! I like reading up on comparisons and the benefits they each offer. I downloaded RealPlayer for the exact reasons you mentioned. I’m pretty much a novice and it really is “user friendly.” I’ve been very satisfied. I found this useful as well if anyone else may be interested http://www.real.com/resources/realplayer-android Thanks again!

    Hi Vishal, fantastic post, but there is a detail I’m interested but couldn’t find anything about it, any of these players has the ability to download subtitles by itself like MediaPlayerClassic does in PC environment?

  • Eugenio, I don’t think so there is any player on android provide such feature, If I will come across any such video player, will let you know.

  • I am glad that you liked the article and the video player listed here.
