A couple of years ago, we brought you news of a media player called RockPlayer. Its claim to fame was being able to play high quality audio and video codecs such as h.264. Following in the footsteps of other old apps like ADW Launcher, the old RockPlayer is being made new again.
XDA Forum Member changeworld has posted the new app to XDA on behalf of the development team. With it comes a number of improvements. They include more codecs for video and audio file support, including:
We rewrote the engine of RockPlayer2, and optimized it for phone with several cores. RP2 supports almost all formats of media files you know, n matter MKV , AVI , RMVB , TS , 720p HD movies or APE, FLAC lossless music, RP2 can play almost everything .
Along with better support, there is also a brand new layout for RockPlayer 2 that is more customizable than its predecessor. It also includes a file manager and a sharing system called RockShare. RockShare allows users on the same WiFi connection to swap media files to one another.
If you were a fan of the old RockPlayer or you’re in the in the market for a new multimedia app, this is definitely one to check out. For more details, go to the original thread._________
