RockPlayer 2 Updated to Support Android 4.3
If you aren’t already aware, the RockPlayer team (a.k.a. XDA Forum Member changeworld) has been posting builds in our forum for quite some time. Over time, it’s seen an update to version 2, each time bringing even more supported formats and playback features, making it one of only a select few options available to those looking for the best media player option on the platform.
When Android 4.3 was released, many weren’t expecting it to break playback with a number of video player utilities, RockPlayer 2 being one of them. Luckily, however, just nine days after the update, the RockPlayer team has patched the issue in the form of release version 2.2.4.
The featureset has remained primarily the same since the last update. However, for those of you frustrated with your recent upgrade due to no longer being able to open your favorite media, this is quite a welcome update. To get the latest version, head over to the application thread. Your media awaits.
