While the default video player for Android phones can play some video formats, it won’t be sufficient if you intend to play a lot of videos on your phone. You will need a better multi format video player for android, and only a third party app like VPlayer can handle that.
This app can play a huge number of video formats. That includes Divx/Xvid, flv, rmvb, avi, mkv, mp4 and many more. Although it is in alpha at the moment, it seems to work well and is available for free at the Android marketplace.
The app is for Android 2.1 or higher. As you can see in the second screenshot above, it is minimalistic and doesn’t boast a lot of controls. It also remembers your playback position which is useful.
