Feather - Music / Video Player

Feather - Music / Video Player


“...A bare bones player without the bells and whistles which may be what a lot of people are looking for.” - Android Authority , Joe Hindy , 11 best Android video player apps

“[This] app is the only one I have installed for playing local music and video files, on both my phone and tablet.” - Emi Hardekyn

This version removes ads, supports an indie developer, and gives you a faster / more enjoyable experience!

Looking for a music or video player that isn't slow, always crashing, or freezing your phone? One that allows you to find what you want to listen to or watch through a file explorer, instead of scanning your entire external storage, just to not find everything you have on there? Tired of external codecs, and just want the native ones that are much more reliable and fast? Do you find full screen video controls getting in the way of your video, and you think that they are annoying? Well, Feather was created for just these reasons, and it is presented in a minimal, beautiful, and easy to use format. Where it is all quite reliable, and always quick.

Playlists - Play videos or music together in a playlist, watch a whole season or listen to a whole album continuously!

My Default Local Media Player PROS: Tiny, folder based, multi-format, simple, intuitive. CONS: No external subtitle support, ugly interface.
