Supports all formats


If you are looking for a free media player that supports all formats then this app is a good choice. Its very easy to set up, just add your files to the app and it will play them with a tap. We can also stream our movies from networks and NAS devices. The app supports SMB/FTP and Upnp/Dlna protocols. Speed of the overall player is fast and it plays my files with no worries. There are many useful options too like audio delay, subtitles, chromecast, airplay, video in background, repeat and shuffle play.

Apart from videos the app supports playing music too. Popular audio formats like mp3, flac, wav, wmv and flac are all supported. It also supports Dolby and DTS codecs. The sound is very loud and clear which makes it perfect for listening to music. The sound can be increased to 300%. The player also has swipe gestures support and we can adjust the brightness and volume with swipes.

Other options like poster view, search, passcode, FaceID, TouchID and screen lock are also supported. The app also lets me share my videos to other programs and apps so I can show them to my friends. The library in the app can store as many files which I add to it without any limits. I have stored my entire media collection in library and I like playing the videos and movies offline when I am away from home. Great app.

DON'T update latest version - adds unnecessary staff picks folder

Cecilia N

Just when I thought Player Xtreme was making good progress with changes, they added an unnecessary "staff picks" folder to your video list. Very disappointed they've resorted to this. There's no mention of this in the changelog whatsoever. I have paid the in app "pro" version and shouldn't be subjected to any forms of ads whatsoever. Shame of Player Xtreme. Below is my previous review. I had originally given the app 3 stars but after this latest update, have dropped it down to 1.

Although the GUI changes look sleeker, some functionality has been hindered. I loved that Player Xtreme had the playback speed increment on screen since majority of other video players don't even offer this feature (and is the MAIN reason I still use it), but now accessing this function requires an extra 2 clicks to access instead of it being readily available on screen with the other controls. Please bring this feature back! I commute often and rely on subtitles when using watching videos. Player Xtreme STILL can't download subtitles over cell data/LTE for some reason. This is a real inconvenience. I can only download subtitles over WiFi. On the upside, I really appreciate being able to FINALLY delete downloaded subtitles. Would be helpful to delete multiple subtitles at once, a feature I hope to see in future updates. Also still can't playback videos with DTS audio. Would be a BIG plus to have this since I did upgrade to pro.

Thanks so much for your feedback. We'll look to address these issues in the coming updates.

Oppressive ads. I do not recommend!!!


Downgraded to one star due to the oppressive ad scheme. described below. The only way to turn this off is to buy the pro version. This was a recent change and I find it unacceptable.
The ad is splashed across the botom of the video unless you watch in portrait mode but who does that when landscape mode is available. This app will almost certainly be deleted from my iPad.

This app works pretty well as a video player. It plays all of the things that I have ripped from my DVDs. I like that I can easily change the volume and brightness with screen gestures. I just wish that there was an easier way to learn what the gestures are. I had to use trial and error. Very much error. It would be five stars but a recent update has it displaying an ad at the bottom of the screen all the time. You can watch an ad and turn off the bottom of the screen ad for 30 minutes but that would just be a total waste of time for a 2 hour movie. I was fine with the ads at the beginning of the videos but this new thing is MUCH TOO INTRUSIVE. Especially since the other ads are still displayed. If I have to buy an upgrade to the pro version to make it go away I will simply look for something better.
