9s-Video HD is a video player for the Android platform which
is designed for Android tablets running Honeycomb.
- Supports Android 3.x in 1280 x 800 and 1024 x 600
- 3D graphic design
- Portrait and landscape modes supported
- Thumbnails support
- Remembers the last position for each file
- Listed by folder
9s-Video HD performs badly in so many different areas it is
hard to know where to start. Regardless of its many faults, the fact
that the app does not allow users to alter the aspect ratio results in
many video files being unwatchable. Further, it performed
no better than the stock player (worse in fact). Too many files do not
even start playing.
We are not particularly enamored with the interface, although
this is at least
functional. Whilst the software is billed as being targeted for Android
3.x devices, it does not mask the task bar, which is off putting when
watching video files.
If I was being cynical, I would say that the developers of
9s-VideoHD chose its name simply so that the software is listed first
when starting files from a file manager, and the list of installed apps
the Android market.
We are sorry to say but 9s-Video HD is miles
away from being fit for purpose. An unmitigated disaster in every
department, ranging from an appalling directory browser and only a
small number of video files are actually watchable. Avoid like the
plague. Even if you are attracted by its low cost, steer clear as most
of the free video players are far better.
