With support for subtitles, lots of codecs, etc. etc. Having a basic video player in the Gallery app is not enough.

Alternative title; "Have support for subtitles, lots of codecs etc etc in the basic video player".

I agree, browsing the gallery for movies is not obvious either.

@Bulder no, actually, a dedicated video app is not a bad idea at all... perhaps someone can confer with the android app maker of "MX player" to port to a native SailfishOS app?

Or VLC player maybe?

Agree, this would be fantastic. GStreamer has always sucked in my opinion (and I don't see why this would change).

And for the codecs, check https://openrepos.net/content/xerxes2/ultimate-codec-support

But it is limited to GStreamer which is horrible for the moment. It doesnt play all videos, audios, no subtitle support, no support for choosing audio track etc etc.

Its up to Jolla to fix the backend.
