Ubuntu: Is there a video player working in Nexus 7



Question:

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


Solution:1

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.


Solution:2

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.


Solution:3

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.


Solution:4

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.
