I didn't really have issues with the music player. But compared to my old iphone, and my wife's ipod touch, Android handles video HORRIBLY.
Now with the huge screen on the Droid X, and the Fascinate hopefully coming soon, these phones are just begging to be used as media players.
When I had my original iphone, ANY video that was mp4 would load and play immediately. Audio/Video stayed synced and it was a pleasurable experience.
When I first got my Droid, I loaded some videos. Most didn't play at all, and others were audio only. There were all .mp4 files that would play fine on my old iphone.
How can the media player be so bad? I did try the Double Twist media player from the market, and it seemed better, but it's still a ways off.
I can handle not being able to sync media as easily as you can with itunes, but playing videos really shouldn't be a painful experience.
Any hope that Google will improve the media playing capabilities in Android?
