    Hi i have music and some videos on my sd card and just need a media player that recognises all formats. I have used VLC on windows and Linux. My desktop machines for years and it's better than anything else. I don't understand the whole direct and remote versions etc on android and what they do. I opened the version i have installed and it wouldn't work without a wifi connection which is not what i want. I just want to play the music i have. The player that comes with this device doesn't recognise many of my files. They are all mp3 and still it errors when i go to play them saying that they are unrecognised files types. I have no problem playing any of them on windows and linux. I transferred them via my windows machine using drag and drop. I think i had to do it putting the sd card in a card reader. Can't quite remember. What is the ideal situation for me to do this as i am new to android and this model phone?:thinking:

    Try MoboPlayer or VitalPlayer instead. These are also able to recognize and play multiple format video. VLC player as such is not there (yet) on Android.

    Oh thanks so much. I will try them when next at a wifi free hotspot. I haven't worked out how to activate my modem so it has wifi access at home as ethernet is what i use. I don't have a data account on the phone so this is the only way i think i get apps.
