Meridian Player is an advanced multimedia player. Play video and music, with lyric/lyrics search, gesture control and extra information. Edit ID3 tags, ratings and threshold.
Meridian Player Android App is one of the best multimedia players for Android yet! Couples music player with video player, something not offered with the vanilla install on the T-Mobile G1 or Android phone. Meridian Player can playback the following formats: MP3, OGG, MP4, and 3GP. Gripe Alert: Android can’t successfully play MPG (MPEG1) files… this is an issue with the operating system… as this was the original universal playable video format before MP4
Meridian Player can save playlists and features all the other perks you would expect from a multimedia player; Shuffle, Repeats, album artwork, etc. You can also play music/video from a folder on your SD Card.
Meridian Player shines in its usability improvements over the the Default Music player for Android created by Google. For example, to Pause/Play… simply tapp the album cover. When watching a video and you need to rewind/fast forward, simply swipe the video left for rewind or swipe right for fast forward.
Features rapid play and gives caution whether Meridian Player can play the video or not. All the videos we’ve tested played just fine (even the cautioned ones).
Moreover, you can edit your own ratings for songs and ID3 information. To do so long-press the song title, tapp “Edit ID3 Tag”

In the Android music/video player realm… this app is very useful because you don’t need 2 apps for one function (cough… Music Player & Video Player)
Ease of Use:
Some might argue one of the usability features aforementioned are not intuitive as “Seeking” in video does not have the Seek Bar. Once you figure out how to swipe to seek, you’ll love it! (Or simply tapp “Menu” to get the onscreen Seek bar back)
Dependant on how often you listen to music or watch videos on your Android phone.
The user interface is simple and intuitive.
