Since I've seen some people on here using Androids having trouble with Mixtape, here's how I use it:
Install VLC for Android.
When you click the mixtape link, open it in VLC.
It works really well for me so I thought I'd share.
There are also websites that distribute VLC, like softpedia.
And there's also the VLC android app: [link] which is great for videos and music too.
Man, I've been trying out VLC for over 2 years now and really it improved lot last year. But there's still some issues with it...
One of the gripe is there's no option to see videos based on folders in VLC like they have in MX, so the video library often ends up being messy. (Fix: The closest solution for now is to use the Directories tab instead of Video tab from Sidebar and manually browsing to the video folders)
Also for some reason VLC tends to use more battery than MX? Maybe there's some Tweaks/Settings option to fix this? (changing decoder or something?)
Option to ask in Video startup if you wanna Resume from last position or Restart the video like in MX. (Fix: OK fixed this from Settings -> Interface -> Ask confirmation to resume ��)
The Subtitle download is kinda unreliable, also there's no "Custom Text Search" for downloading subtitles as of now unlike MX so it often ends up not finding subtitles. (This REALLY need to be fixed)
Anyways I really hope that VLC devs fixes this stuff, as VLC is probably the best alternative at this point.
Edit: Added Solutions to some issues mentioned before (in Italics), and VLC seems looking as the best alternative already, Thanks!
I don't think that's possible. Use VLC to play videos/movoes on your phone.
> Where did the files go?
Files are still there. But play movies app won't detect it. Play movies app shows only purchased content from play store. As I suggested use VLC to play it.
If you'd like a free option, grab VLC: [link]
It's well recognized as being able to play anything, do it well, and all while being open source.
ALSO, no adware, no ads. WIN WIN WIN WIN
I'm pretty sure that was meant to be [Cardboard VNC](/r/GoogleCardboard/comments/303e7p/i_made_a_cardboard_vnc_app_to_learn_android/), as VNC is a method to share a frame buffer over a network, while VLC is a movie player with no relation to Cardboard. Trinus VR also has the (recently added and still rough) option to show the Windows desktop in Cardboard. For both cases don't expect too much, the resolution is too low to use it for real desktop applications, and [this will take some time and hardware generations to change](/r/virtualreality/comments/39p90o/am_i_alone_in_wanting_vr_just_to_have_more_work/).
> I hope you know that only Windows tablets have VLC Media Player
You not just writing horrible ads, you're also wrong. VLC is available for both Android and iOS.
You might still be able to play the video on it. Try VLC like /u/LifeLikeAndPoseable mentioned.
Here's the play store link.
Personally, I still use MX Player as my video player, but VLC for Android is a good alternative. Also, I've never tried Light Manager, but I use Light Flow on my Nexus 4 and I've never had any issues with it.
What's the format of the video files? It could be an issue with the format, so a conversion may be needed. Handbreak for the desktop is a good video conversion software that can also down sample the resolution to a more manageable one if you want to try that out as an option.
Do you know the name of the app that your phone is using to play the videos? It could also be worth downloading VLC on your phone and playing the videos on there to ensure that the files didn't get messed up while being transferred to your desktop (data corruption, somehow). If they play in VLC on your phone but not in VLC on the desktop, then something probably went wrong during the file transfer to your desktop.
Install & configure UMS on your PC and use VLC for Android to listen, and make sure both your devices connected to the same network.
I noticed this too and was wondering what happened. I can still see it if I'm logged in presumably since I already installed it, but I don't see the ability to install it on anything else. I'm curios what's up, I can't see anything . You can still grab it off APKMirror apparently. Wonder if they were planning on updating the main beta version so it updates naturally or they found a critical bug with it or some other oops. If anyone finds out what the deal is/was let me know.
If you're on Android, then you're talking about "Motion Photos". A Motion Photo does have a "still" version, which you can see if you press the "Motion on/off" button at the top. However, if you're trying to capture a point in the motion that isn't the final "still" photo, here's a method I've done before (Note: it's not super straight-forward and there might be a better way):
1. In the Google Photos app, find the Motion Photo you want to capture a still part of.
2. Tap the vertical "..." on the picture, and select the "Export" option.
3. There should be an "Export as..." pop-up, with options for Video, GIF, or Still photo. Select "Video".
4. The next step is to pause the video and screenshot the moment you want. The unfortunate/annoying thing about Google Photos is that its video player never hides the "Play" button. Many other video players on Android do. So... you'll need to download another video player (VLC for Android is a reputable option), and pause the video at the moment you want, and screenshot it.
And that's the very roundabout way I've taken ~~pictures~~ screenshots of the moment I want out of a Motion Photo. I don't do it often.
I've found the best option for Android is VLC media player.
In the side menu you'll see "Stream". Click that and add this URL:
Stream has never been down for me. Added bonus, VLC is an excellent all around media player.
Download VLC, it's compatible with pretty much anything out there. I couldn't play the videos from my SG9665GC on my phone without VLC.
VLC is an open source (free) video player, you can get it from Google's Play Store: [link]
You may not need it depending on your dash cam and your phone. Try things out with an OTG adaptor, if everything works with the software the manufacturer installed on your phone then great. If not, then try something like I did.
You just want to know what works for you so you can quickly review a video clip when the situation comes up where you need to.
AVi is a container not a codec if the build in player is't working its most likely a odd codec on your cam. try [link] this is what i use to play my dashcam media on my tablet/phone.
Well that was embarrassing, I guess the bot doesn't work here.
MX Player: [link]
i'm on sprint and don't know what app you're trying to use to stream.
Try VLC to stream. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.videolan.vlc&hl=en_US
This sounds like a video player issue. Try different (external) players (for instance, VLC) and different settings. Try software (SW) decoding appose to hardware (HW) decoding.
Yes. VLC For Android
However. Try a different music player. Walkman has bad tendencies to be shit when throwing other files than mp3 at it.
I use chrome to sync between my iPad, Laptop, and phone. I've found VLC to be the best for media playback, and Gramophone to be the most beautiful music player.
You could try downgrading to the older version of MxPlayer?
I don't know of any apps with the same function but VLC for Android has some great features that are worth checking out.
I'm pretty sure it's VLC Player. There's a VlcPlayerActivity and other VLC stuff in the smali code. I doubt if the standalone version has this ip sharing functionality..
If you want to watch a 3D movie from, for instance MegaBox HD on your TV, you can share the stream-url in MX Player by pressing the menu button and then Tools and then Share. The url will be too long to type in manually but you could use an url shortener app to fix that. Just a thought..
New Pipe + VLC.
You click the headphones icon in newpipe, set it to use VLC as the external player. Music starts in the background without vlc even popping up. Just shows a progress notification with play/pause.
Are you talking about whatsapp audio/Voice notes ? .opus files ??
You can listen it using VLC media player. It's Working fine for me.
You need to buy pro version , It will remove the ads.
Alternatively use VLC player. I am using it & It works perfectly fine for me.
The Beta link but you have to join the Beta community, and apply for Beta to see it.
The Old app that's called VLC Beta is not the Beta they are talking about here.
The VLC app should be able to handle just about any video format for playback, and is available for free in both the Google Play and Amazon app stores. Whatever tablet you buy, you should be covered.
> There is no way to do the transcoding locally like the windows version.
you are using the wrong version. VLC v3+ on android does transcoding perfectly
It seems that your comment contains 1 or more links that are hard to tap for mobile users.
I will extend those so they're easier for our sausage fingers to click!

A partir de la versión 3.0.0 podes castear, buscá donde diga "procesador" en el menú de reproducción o haciendo click derecho sobre el video. Para manejarlo a distancia esta la app oficial de VLC (que es una genialidad si logras que conecte), sino podes usar cualquiera de todas la app que hay en la tienda que usa la interfaz web (perdés algunas funciones pero es fácil de conectar).
I apologize for bothering you again, i really appreciate all the help. I am assuming that this is the proper app since it is published by VideoLabs but i thought i would double check if this was the one you were talking about:
Newpipe lets you play youtube videos in a external player like VLC.
VLC Player... end of article.
You got the wrong one.
Here is the good app : [link]
The old 0.9 will be killed
It's in the Play Store just like any other Android app.
Hey, this is kind of a wonky solution for you but you could use NewPipe to browse YouTube and then a media player of your choice. VLC or MxPlayer both support playback speed adjustment.
Hope this helps!
VLC plays all the things.
Alternatively, you could just use Streams in VLC.
Have you tried VLC?
VLC for Android is super good
Not an app per say, but it results in a EDM stream.
Download VLC and go to SomaFM
Pick a station and go to the 'Direct Stream Links', copy the 'Direct Server' link, and paste it under 'Stream' in VLC. You'll end up with something like this.
Unfortunately VLC doesn't allow you to name the stream, but I'm sure that'll be fixed in a future update.
> The Win32 version has less features
> No, the UWP version is faster and easier to use.
How is it "faster"? It's more locked down, restrictive, shittier.
> I've seen you make nasty comments about Readit in the past.
Ah I just remembered it. It's an "app" to look at a website. Wow, amazing!1!1!
> and still fully featured
Wait so you can have filters now? Oh, nevermind.
> and not as easy to use, especially with touch
No one has a touchscreen on a desktop.
> It is made by a 3rd party and works better than the 1st party solutions.
lmao ok kid.
> M&TV supports more file formats and more codecs right out of the box.
WMP supports FLAC in Windows 10. What other formats do you need? At least WMP can read off CDs and rip them.
> Oh, M&TV works on my phone,
lmao you have a Windows Phone? Cute. No one else does or cares about that failed platform.
> They are the least biased of all the Windows aimed websites
Hard to find a negative or critical article about Microsoft there, tbh.
> The People Bar in Win10 litterally relies on it, and my entire office uses the People Bar to quickly communicate with each other.
You work at MS I'm assuming?
> UWP VLC is faster and uses less resources than the Win32 version as confirmed by the developer.
"Faster"? Jesus christ, stop! VLC takes 1 second to open on my computer. Yes, of course it uses less resources, it's a port of their "app" versions!
> Also, the Win32 doesn't work on phones.
> I'm not using the Win32 versions that were recently added to the store, for similar reasons of not needing Outlook 2016.
Again, if you're content with a dumbed-down, "app" version, then go for it. MS knows nobody wants those.
> Give it up, you are stuck in the past, the world has moved on
Has it? UWP/Windows Runtime has been irrelevant since 2012, almost 6 years ago. I'd say it's a pretty dead platform.
VLC of course !
VLC plays about every format under the sun (including Apple Lossless which might be the problem) and is free.
When you go to the "Audio" tab is only shows audio files sorted by tag-data
It might not be well known as audio player, but the GUI in the latest version is pretty ok for it
Have you tried the VLC android app?
VLC is pretty much the best out there.
Stop being a shill pleb and use VLC for android along side the Bittorrent for android and download some anime from Nyaa Torrents.
Do you have VLC?
Download VLC for Windows, Mac or Linux, iOS, Windows Phone or Android
Then "Add a new Stream" and put [link] in there
If you have them downloaded locally to your phone, I highly suggest VLC as a player. It works well for both audio and video.
VLC for Android
Edit: added link
( Play Market )
You can use an app called VLC to lock screen rotation for your offline videos.
VLC Battery efficient
Joey for Reddit Light weight, feature heavy
Have you tried VLC? Their screenshots explicitly show .mov files.
VLC for Android will play nearly everything; I'd try that first.
Also using it. Link btw:
have you tried VLC ?
VLC for Android can play WMA files I think.
I think even Google Photos supports WebM.
try a different video player
Use VLC instead. There are a lot more options.
Try VLC, easiest option
Android has it.
With VLC you can set the playback speed.
Edit link: [link]
I'd try VLC.
For Android: [link]
No was just checking to see if the file was corrupted.
Download VLC and see if you can open it from there - [link]
This one? [link]
Your best bet is to try VLC.
Get the version on the Play Store.
The "VLC media player" app allows you to boost the sound of whatever you are playing.

I flip back and forth between Apollo, which I've been using for years, and VLC which is my go-to for everything on desktop(for me, Linux and Windows, but VLC is pretty much on everything), because it will play virtually any audio or video file format. of the two, I'd recommend VLC, and the only reason I haven't fully switched is because I'm just more used to how Apollo works.
not only do I personally not like Winamp for a number of reasons, but I have a lot of lossless music. Apollo and VLC are the only things I've ever found that play FLAC on Android. and for a while, VLC for Android didn't exist. I also like how both of those apps let me long press my volume rockers with the screen off to skip tracks, while a tap with the screen off will still increase/decrease the volume.
VLC for Android does.
Use VLC... [link]
For the Android users, download VLC player. Mixtape links automatically open in VLC, and it works perfectly.
> [link] ScummVM, perfect for playing all kinds of old adventure games. Should be perfect for chromebooks!
Suggest a few titles?
Perhaps you're using an old version. [link]
Why'd you need one? Media players like VLC can play video at higher playback speed.
It looks like VLC has the ability to stream from a media server. Plus, it's free!
Try VLC for Android
Have you tried VLC for android? It works really well on my Nexus 9.
No need to convert them, just get VLC for Android.
I think VLC does - [link]
Ya I am watching it on the vlc app
Edit: I am just looking for more links, this one works great
It has had screensharing for a while - [link]
Skype Win32 still can't sync my text messages.
>How is it "faster"? It's more locked down, restrictive, shittier.
UWP OneNote opens faster, it opens files faster, it syncs faster, and has better pen and touch support. It is not restrictive, and it certainly isn't shittier. The Win32 version is deprecated, new features are being added to the UWP version all the time.
>Ah I just remembered it. It's an "app" to look at a website. Wow, amazing!1!1!
That is about as stupid as saying that Outlook is an app to look at emails. Again, you humorously show your ignorance and arrogance.
>No one has a touchscreen on a desktop.
Again, you = no one. Touchscreen desktops are very common these days, even at my work we are upgrading old machines to Surface Studios and Dell Optiplex all in ones with touch. (Deciding factor being mostly on whether the pen will be needed).
>lmao ok kid.
Not my fault the Discord devs are sleeping on the job and someone in a basement somewhere was able to easily outshine them, while complying with Microsoft's design languages and supporting a wide range of devices. I still can't get the Win32 Discord to log in with 2 factor enabled.
>WMP supports FLAC in Windows 10. What other formats do you need? At least WMP can read off CDs and rip them.
I don't use FLAC, but many of my h264 .mkv video files would not open on WMP without installing a 3rd party codec pack, but M&TV handles them out of the box. You got me on CD playback, but the last CD I bought was Coolio's Gangstas Paradise so that isn't something I've noticed.
>lmao you have a Windows Phone? Cute. No one else does or cares about that failed platform.
Yep, sticking with that until something better comes along.
>Hard to find a negative or critical article about Microsoft there, tbh.
It didn't even take me a minute to find these three
>You work at MS I'm assuming?
Nope, I work at a school.
>"Faster"? Jesus christ, stop! VLC takes 1 second to open on my computer. Yes, of course it uses less resources, it's a port of their "app" versions!
And the UWP version is instant, not even a second. The app version simply is better.
OK? They aren't the Win32 version, they are the "app" version you dislike so much.
>Again, if you're content with a dumbed-down, "app" version, then go for it. MS knows nobody wants those.
They aren't dumbed down, they are fresh and fast, they aren't bogged down by 30 year old code. I do vividly remember Word UWP being pretty basic several years ago when it launched, but they did a lot of work on it and added all the commonly used features.
>Has it? UWP/Windows Runtime has been irrelevant since 2012, almost 6 years ago. I'd say it's a pretty dead platform.
UWP hasn't even been around that long, the SDKs only came out in the middle of 2015. More and more UWP apps come out each day, it is far from dead.
You mean for streaming? Google Play has tons of movies. You can also stream from Amazon Prime Videos.
Or if you meant for playing videos, VLC for Android can play any file type you throw at it.
I thought GearVR is powered by an Android Phone...
VLC is so much better than MX Player (even Pro version and VLC is free) now : [link]
