Ubuntu: Is there a video player working in Nexus 7


Is there a video player that will playback mp4s on the ARM processor? VLC gives me a black screen when it tries to play the video back


I haven't tried it myself but there is a bug filed where someone else reports the same behavior. If you have the same behavior please add any details to that bug. I know that the HTML5 player in youtube works, but it can be sluggish. Following that bug will be the quickest way to find out when it's fixed.


Totem plays MP4s encoded with h264. For example: http://downloads.dvdloc8.com/trailers/divxdigest/simpsons_movie_trailer.zip

but performance is a bit patchy. see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-nexus7/+bug/1072661

I do not recommend that you use vlc at the moment.


There are so many video player which can work in Nexus 7. Like, mVideoPlayer or QQ player. For more video player, you can view here.


I know a lot of android players use ffmpeg backend to do decoding work. I'd give mplayer a try, and checkout the mplayer -vo options.
