Best video players for Android
1. MX Player
Hey, it even allows you pinching to zoom in your video while playing, timing subtitles with scroll, kids lock and advanced streaming! Quirks are issues on some handsets when playing high-res MKV files, sound issues, as it doesn't support DTS, and it also needs a bit better video folder list interface, but overall you can't go wrong with it. Comes with Jelly Bean and full multicore processor support.
BSPlayer has arguably the best streaming support, too, so you can enjoy your huge NAS or shared PC folder collection without hassles. Added bonus - automatic subtitle finder for your movies when connected to the Internet.
4. QQ Player
The added value here is the Private locker, where you can stash password-accessible videos you don't want others to see, you know what we mean.
The added value is an easy way to change the playback speed from the player's interface and asf streaming, while downsides are stability, as well as the lock screen issue with some devices.
Unfortunately it hasn't been updated for a while, and its hardware acceleration often has issues with lag or skipping in the first few frames. Still one of the better alternatives out there. Trial version can be unlocked for $1.99 now.

Will be added as soon as it is out of beta, since it's pretty good as it is already :)

I guess we all were thinking the same ;)

MX is already the best... It has every setting you'd need and more :D
But that's just me..

Although i have a GS2 which plays everything i throw at it with the built-in player, i must say i like both MX and Mobo, both have great, fast and functional UIs and also support anything i throw at them, ive got both installed. Also got QQ Player in my Xperia X10 and use Mobo on my Galaxy Tab10.1. :)

Thanks for the suggestions. Dropped Rockplayer Lite for MX Player. Best decision ever until VLC comes into play.

MX FTW. Throw any video file at it, you won't be disappointed I started using it after mVideo Player which is not in the list but it's pretty good.

Im fine with the default player, given that I dont watch a lot of videos on my phone anyway, and when I do, its typically via Youtube or videos I recorded from the phone.

Yeah, MX Player is really of great features including background playback.
VLC is also one of my favorites. lol
