A lot of apps may confuse you as to what they actually do because of their name, but with the HD Video Player, most people understand that they'll be getting a third-party media player for their Android device.

A Review of the HD Video Player for Android

It's not a new thing to find an app out there that's a video player; after all, your Android OS will already include a media player. Media players are perhaps one of the most common types of apps for mobile devices, and even one of the most downloaded programs for desktops and laptops. But with the HD Video Player, Android users are getting something a little different. Often in the case that most media players have a limited range, and they're only downloaded to play niche files. For instance, WMV plays MPG, MPEG, MP4 and other formats, so people will get VLC to play AVI, FLV, and other formats. This particular app for Android has probably the most extensive catalog of file formats on the market, so you will not have to use multiple players. You can use this one player for everything you have, any type of video or audio files.

While this is only a media player and doesn't do double duty as anything else, there's still a whole lot to say about this app. For starters, it has a very light footprint. So if you still need to chat or film something while your player is active, it won't bog you down. It also sets up automatically so you won't need any technical skills to get it working.
