I've installed MX Video Player on my rooted 10 G2 and I'm a bit disappointed in the video quality. The Big Buck Bunny sample video looked great, but when I transfer other videos to the device they don't seem to have the same quality. Videos shown at 100% look good, but when they're scaled up "zoom to fit" the scaling makes them look very pixelated. I have other Android devices that don't suffer from the same problem. Is this simply to do with the 10 G2's screen, or is there a setting I need to change, or a different video player that can make the videos look better?
I've also tried some HD (720p) content. While this doesn't suffer from the poor quality scaling mentioned above, it tends to struggle, and plays very slowly. Any suggestions?
I'd also like to be able to hide the menu bar when playing video. Is this possible, other than in the default Video app, which seems to have poor format support?
Go get Handbrake from http://www.handbrake.fr
You can use the preset for Android High or iPad. Obviously you cant feed it crappy video and expect an improvement, but it's an excellent encoder for this purpose. The one change that I like to make is to click on the audio tab, then the Advanced button, then increase the DRC (dynamic range compression) to 2. That reduces the crazy loudness of cinematic films, making it better (more even).
