Better than Quicktime

I was trying to play some mp4 format tutorial videos that I had downloaded from the web, but the video was not smooth (kind of jittered) and the audio would fade out every few seconds with I having to pause and then play. I was ok with the video but needed the audio to work fine. Before losing hopes on it completely, I randomly thought of trying out an MP4 player and tried this one from the app store (for no other specific reason). I'm glad I did! Both the audio and video started working perfectly. Plus this app also has a very minimal design (very much like Quicktime)

Does what I want it to, but... caused my MacBook Air to freeze up. I guess there's a first time for everything. My 2014 MBA hasn't frozen up until today. I opened App Store to look for some crossword games, and looked at the reviews for one. When I tried to expand one, everything froze. I tried all of the standard remedies: Command-Q, Command-Option-Esc, holding down the power button and clicking Shut down when prompted...nothing workked...until a few minutes had passed, then a dialogue box appeared, asking me to rate MX Player. This box didn't look like MacOS. I closed it, and everything unfroze. I restarted my Mac--and here I am. I installed MX because I wanted something that would open old .wmv files without having to convert them. It does that. But I find the prompts to rate your app annoying. And in this case, I would rate it as more than just annoying.

Great Player, Buggy "Pro Features"

The player works very well and I have no issues with it. I decided to upgrade to the "Pro Features" to eliminate the hassle of plugging my computer into the TV via an HDMI cable. I tested a few video formats to be sure it would work with my collection. It worked perfectly with the three different formats so I made the purchase. Later in the day when I tried to watch a video on the TV the search didn't find the TV and it didn't look like it was searching. I tried to restore purchases, restart the app, etc.. It didn't work. Today I tried it again the next day with the same results initially. After starting this review the TV appeared in the search window. lt is a bit buggy.
