Trick 1- moliplayer pro has 15days trial period. after 15days it pops to purchase. just uninstall it n reinstall n you get another 15days.. do this after every 15days.
Trick 2- change your phone region to china n restart your phone.
china app store has two moliplayer apps. one is freen other is paid.
just search moliplayer free n download.
then again set your region to default n restart your phone.
another good news is official "VLC Media player" is coming any time soon to all wp users totally free of cost.

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2014I'd LOVE to make the switch from Android to Windows phone but truth be told, I'm afraid of fee... moreActually I did switch to windows phone 8 from android (as I bought lumia520) . at start it was real good experience which hardware (camera especially) .but software side many games and apps missing tat I used to in android like clash of clans ,mxplayer ,flash transfer ( still these apps not in wp).as days went the probs became serious as no file manager and I cudnt find the files which is taking memory many video formats wasn't supporting those memory was invisible and for everything I needed PC to do sorting .if I need PC for all wats the reason on buying smartphone. The apps can't be shared with others like in android so we need to download each time and can't take back up of apps like we do in android. So I went back to android but now wp8.1 came with some gud features and apps like file manager too but still not entirely flexible like driod .here maps is awesome than google maps especially I love offline support.
My word is this wp8.1 is good (still need more apps) if u can live with less video format supports(moliproplayer is close to MX player but paid app). No app sharing , no flash transfers( I use it all time to share movies from friends) . and u get smoothness of wp no lag awesome inter face ,here maps ,nice camera apps then go for lumia .remember after some days android lags unlike windows
I'd LOVE to make the switch from Android to Windows phone but truth be told, I'm afraid of feeling like I'm going to miss something, I'm not much of a gamer, I play on Consoles so game quantity isn't an issue for me. Is their anyone who has made the switch before who has stayed on this platform? Was it difficult to make the switch over and do you miss anything from android? It'd be a huge help of someone replied.
Drizzy, 24 Nov 2014You simply cannot replace Google with any other search engine, be it Bing or Yahoo. Google is ... moreI never use google search engine or anything relate to google. I use Bing on my phone and laptop since I use WP devices, and I'm satisfied with that.
Drizzy, 24 Nov 2014Are you crazy? Who told you mp3 sharing is illegal?
It's just the songs that are copyrighte... moreyes dude... every original online song in web is copyright protected..
if you downloading it from any unwanted websites then its tagged as pirated..
so keep one thing in mind that if you are downloding music from any unauthorized website then its illegal because original song maker or firm not allowed this website owner to publish it on anywhere on web...
n users now steps up further, they download these music n also share it to others..
I know everyone do this n its common now days but this whole thing count under "illegal" category.
just suppose you are owner of big music industry like ms xbox music or apple itunes.. can you allow consumers to share your DRM protected music on social network sites or on social messengers. then you ll be bankrupt because everyone sharing your music free of cost with everyone.
so basically such music sharing is illegal if ms or apple or any music firm not allow you to share music.
here microsoft not given any APIs to devs to share mp3 files.
its just simple answer...
your behavior is totally confusing. I really don't understand your problem.
Since this phone doesn't have clear black display and also because of larger screen size I dont think 1905 mAh battery would be sufficient...Atleast Battery should be around 2300 mAh
Drizzy, 24 Nov 2014You simply cannot replace Google with any other search engine, be it Bing or Yahoo. Google is ... moreYes.. agreed that google is best search engine n by the way anyone can use google search engine in wp.. microsoft not restricted anyone for bing... its google which not supporting wp platform.
about youtube. I was trying to say that youtube is video sharing service. and very popular. youtube is unique so their is no any smartness to launch any alternative service to compete with youtube.
youtube is standalone company which is bought by google same like skype which bought by microsoft. google also tried to make "hangouts" as alternative skype service but all know what happened with hangouts.. no one use it.
ohhh... leave it.. my point is only about alternative 3rd party youtube apps which are better on wp store... we really don't want official youtube app if google don't want to provide us.
also for your kind information last year microsoft requested google to make official youtube app for wp but google refused. with falling patience microsoft itself made a great youtube app without google permission. even in less than a week this ms made youtube reached at #1 downloaded app in wp store.. actually ms made that app even better than android n ios official app. n that app news spread everywhere on internet. google felt jalous n gave a notice to ms within a week to remove this youtube app from wp store.. ms never listened so they block this app access from youtube server.
now think how cheap google is...

[deleted post]Are you crazy? Who told you mp3 sharing is illegal?
It's just the songs that are copyrighted is illegal to share.
wp8 lvr, 24 Nov 2014hey dude... I really don't understand your comments. sometimes you praise about wp n same time... moreYou simply cannot replace Google with any other search engine, be it Bing or Yahoo. Google is simply the best when it comes to search engines, bar none.
And there are no "alternatives" to Youtube. There are none better than Youtube when it comes to video sharing.
Though I can agree with switching to Outlook and One Drive.
Btw I am not a WP fanboy nor it's hater.

about mp3 sharing is not legal thing.. even ios apps also not able to share mp3 files. it is because microsoft n apple has their own authorized xbox music n itunes music stores..
so it is not lack.. it is not legal thing.. so WhatsApp, viber n hike are authorized services n they not break legality here.
all other features are available in these apps here comparing to android versions.
just check yourself.
about fb.. post sync issues are resolved now n pic uploading issue facing only few users. they will resolve it in upcoming updates.
about your other stated issues like tost notification, stickers, lack of wallpapers issue was almost 6month old issues dude..
everything is resolved now.. so don't spread wrong info..
looks like you are a android fan.. so tell me would you like if I note year old issues in android in current stage???
I think your answer is no.. so just check current status of os.. please don't write old issues.
most of issues are resolved now and apps you noted like WhatsApp, viber n hike are upto date now with other platforms n supports all features available in android except mp3 file sharing.
well just see the comment section of app store of WP.People are crying since last 2-3 years to make the most popular and basic application like Whatsapp,Viber,Hike as functional as Android.They can't even attach Mp3 songs, Lack of stickers, no proper push notification, lack of wallpapers.OMG!!
Instagram is still in beta phase.Lol.
even fb for WP has got worst rating and critisim as its laggy,don't show proper news feed,problems in loading images ad uploading profile pictures.
leave alone the gaming department.
