    "Any Android user knows AC3 video files (AC3 video codec) are a headache to play as there are no native programs that play it. AC3 Player allows me to play the tricky codec without any additional plugins or downloads! It also supports a bunch of other video codecs, and many audio codecs as well. I love it because as a non-techy the user interface is very easy to use."

    "Does not allow the user to view videos in a floating view. For all of its technical efficiency, the lack of this feature makes the whole thing next to worthless if you're in need of it."

    "This player used to be pretty good for playing relatively obscure file formats that others couldn't handle, but the latest update seems to have trimmed down support in favor of sleeker code that runs a lot faster. As an example AC3 formats don't seem to be compatible."

    "I've been using VLC for years as it can pretty much play anything. So of course I have it on my iPhone and iPad you never know what types of file formats you are going to stumble upon out there. I only wish playing videos from a network share worked a bit smoother, it's a bit more buggy than I would like."
