    Hi guys,

    I think this topic has been discussed many times, still we don't get anything from Microsoft.

    To be frank, I am a die hard fan of Windows Phone 8. I really like the built-in video app in WP 8.
    But it comes with some less features. And we don't see any significant Video app in store.

    My question is, why Microsoft not improving its built-in app to have more features and support more codecs for all WP devices? And if it does not, then why there are no video apps like MX Player? And why the hell, when we download a video, it has to b accessed from the app that downloaded it, instead of getting it in the videos section of Music+Videos app?? We cannot even share the stored videos unless we have to plug in the usb cable.

    I think its high-time now and Microsoft must understand this and do the needful as it has been working hard for improving the OS.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I am asking for a video player app. Not a trimmer or streaming app.

    Yx player supports almost all popular formats but you will have to use pocket fille manager to get it work.

    The reason is it won't be too useful right now when 3rd party apps can only access its own files in isolated storage. Once the API is opened up more like Windows 8 to allow access to video library, you will see tons of apps. Yx Player app have to setup a private FTP server in order to sync video files.

    This is exactly my point. Why is the API not opened? What is the problem if it is provided to developers for preparing third party video app as ultimately it will be Microsoft who will decide which app to be published and which not to be.

    VLC is very close to releasing an official app for WP8. That will be THE reference app for video play.

    VLC has crowd funded the project to make VLC player apps for both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. But if you are in US, don't be surprised if the apps are not available. Its Android app is only available outside of US in Google play store.
