The popular Linux media player on your phone
- Minimal impact on system memory
- Handles a large range of formats
- Support for streaming media
- Playlist support
- Advanced features are thin on the ground
mPlayer has always been one of the best and most popular media players for Linux, and the open source app now makes its debut on mobile platforms in the shape of this Windows Mobile software.
Although it's a stripped-down version of the original it still represents a great way to enjoy music and video on your handheld.
As well as the ubiquitous handling of MP3, AVI, WMA and the like, the program lets you tune in to streaming media and recognises all types of Flash video.In terms of its user interface, the program is a little simplistic, though not in a bad way. In fact, I much prefer to have a player that's light yet practical, rather than some bloated app with loads of features you don't need.
Hence, you get basic options for locating a file, opening a playlist or adding a URL, without impacting on your device's memory too much.If you're looking for a slick and simple way to handle all types of media on your Pocket PC then look no further than mPlayer.
