Galaxy Note Video Player Ported to Galaxy S II
Do you love the resizable pop-up video player from Samsung Galaxy Note and wish it were available on your Galaxy S II? While Samsung isn’t officially providing it for the SGS II, that doesn’t mean our members here at XDA aren’t doing anything about it. XDA Forum Member mythtrandyr has successfully ported this player from the Galaxy Note to SGS II, making it available for all of us to install on our devices.
The player works on all stock and custom Android 4.0.4 ROMS based on Samsung’s TouchWiz firmware including XWLQ5/LPM/LPO/LPT/LPU/LPX. It will not work on non-TouchWiz ROMs or any ROMs based on Android 4.0.3 or earlier. While it is built for deodexed ROMs, it can be made to work on an odexed ROM by simply deleting videoplayer.odex file from /system/app using ADB, Terminal Emulator, or a root access file manager of your choice.
You can install it by grabbing the flashable zip from the forum thread and flashing it to your device from recovery.
