Versatility on the go
You can play a variety of video formats on your phone’s default media player. However, you can’t watch all of them without an additional media viewer such as this one.
An upgrade over your default video viewer
Watch more videos on your mobile device with GOM Player, an alternative media viewer for smartphones.
GOM Player is a multimedia app that doesn’t have to cost you a cent to use, but gives you access to higher resolution videos if you shell out for the premium version. You can use the standard features of this software to watch almost any video file. However, there are a few video codecs that you will be restricted from watching unless you pay for the full version.
The controls available are easy to use, featuring slide menus and video options to quickly let you adjust whatever you’re watching. You can also change the video speed, sections, and progress bar.
The application is fully compatible with cloud supported storage, letting you quickly watch videos from those platforms. VR is also supported if you have the headgear to slot your mobile phone into. There’s the option to change up your media player’s skin to suit your preferences.
Without purchasing the full version there is no way to watch high-definition content. The content is supported only in the paid version, much like a handful of codecs. This is significant if you’re using a newer phone with higher-quality displays capabilities.
The Android version of GOM Player does not offer as many features as the desktop version does. There is also the intuitive design of the folder management interface that should be considered before getting the full version.
Where can you run this program?
The application is installable on Android devices that have Android 4.0.3 or a more recent operating system.
Is there a better alternative?
No. Many multimedia programs can run almost every video file available, but few can match up with GOM. However, there is a notable free version called VLC, which can play most media files.
GOM Player is a great way to watch media on your Android phone, especially if the default system cannot run a particular codec.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you are searching for an application that will allow you to stream on the go, look no further than this one.
