I have installed 4.3 yesterday on my Nexus 4, and since that time MX player would not load, saying:

unsupported android version

Is there a workaround, or do I have to wait until the developers change the API level check? As far as I know there is nothing in 4.3 that makes a code change neccessary.

I have tried RealPlayer as well, it says the same. There might have been some serious changes after all. Then again, VLC player is working.

I am more and more confused.

  • While you wait as geffchang said, raise this to the developer's attention. – Narayanan Jul 31 '13 at 8:48
  • The last two minor updates to MX Player both released over the last 3 days have both listed compatibility fixes for Android 4.3, and for Restricted Profiles with Android 4.3. It's now working fine on my 4.3 phone. So it's worth trying again now. – GAThrawn Aug 6 '13 at 19:15

You need to wait until they release a version that's compatible with Android 4.3.

For the mean time, you can try other players like BSPlayer or VPlayer. They're working with 4.3.

Update #1: As of 2013-08-07, based on GAThrawn's comments, MX Player now works with Android 4.3

As geffchang said, VPlayer is a good alternative.

If you are still looking for MX Player, here is the test build, which works perfectly with 4.3 version.

  • It does not work on my device, with the hardware decoder it gives a black screen, but the subtitles are there. Without it a film is loaded, some circle rotates for 1 second, than the next file is loaded in the same way. – András Aug 1 '13 at 8:36

VLC seems to be working fine on my 4.3 update on my Nexus.
