MoliPlayer Pro sprints ahead with power video playback

Published by at

MoliPlayer Pro, debuting late in 2013, has been sprinting ahead with a series of updates, summarised below. In short, it's an independent video playback utility (think VLC for Windows Phone) that can play almost anything you care to dump in your Pictures folder (from a Win 7/8 PC), onto a device's microSD card or transferred using an integral Wi-fi link.

Here's what's new for version, since the last time we covered MoliPlayer Pro back in November:

  • Added support for downloading and playing resources in Baidu Cloud, 360 Cloud, and SkyDrive

  • Added an option in setting for resuming playback in movies
  • Optimized non-stop playing real-time contents when fast forwarding and rewinding
  • Added download manager for internet videos
  • Pinch-zoom and pan of videos during playback (software only, doesn't use GPU).
  • Support for embedded subtitles during playback
  • Added new playback modes, including loop, shuffle, continuous, and single loop
  • Video files now searchable by first letter (when there are more than 10 files, sorted by name)
  • Added playback speed changes: slow motion & fast motion
  • Added support for customisation of buttons on the control panel
  • Now displays battery indicator during playback
  • Now displays playlist to select another video or music during playback
  • Browsing & playback of videos and audio stored on a PC/NAS/Wireless HD through uPnP/DLNA
  • Music playback now possible in background or with screen locked.
  • Added dual-audio mkv playback
  • File list can now be sorted by recently watched

MoliPlayer Pro is a terrific solution once you've managed to get all your video content into the right places on your smartphone - as often happens with Windows Phone applications, working around the OS's own straitjacket is the biggest hurdle to overcome.

MoliPlayer Pro can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Store. A free trial is available with the full app costing £2.29 / $2.99 / €2.99.
