With more than 10 years of multimedia experience, Archos is well known for the rock solid video playing features on their devices. They have been perfecting their multimedia suite over years, delivering optimized multimedia solutions that , unfortunately, were proprietary and locked to Archos tablets only. For the first time, they are now releasing their software as a paid application simply named Archos Video available on Google Play Store, for €4.99 or $4.99. Android 4.0 or later is required to run the application.
Archos Video main features
Compared to similar Android video playing applications from Google Play Store, Archos Player offers a very complete list of features:

MPEG2 video format and DTS need extra plug-in (see below)
- play videos locally from the tablet, from an attached USB storage or from local network (UPnP and SMB / Windows shares)
- automatic online retrieval of Movie and TV show information with poster and backdrop for both local and network content (uses open databases from themoviedb.org for movies and thetvdb.com for TV/Series)
- subtitles support: display and automatic download (uses opensubtitles.org)
