You could try MX Player »play.google.com/store/apps/detai···IuYWQiXQ..

Edit: or can you not download anything from the Play store?

Getjar has it. Getjar is fairly reliable - I used it for apps for a Symbian phone.

I think this is the Beta version. Looks like it got zipped up when I uploaded. So don't forget to unzip it.

MX Player FTW! It plays damned near everything I've thrown at it, including movies with separate soft sub files. It's like the VLC for Android!

For a free video player I use MX Player. I find it works very well on my nexus 7.

OP said he can't use play store.

Another place is Androidpit.

Does it work without root, and what folder does it side load into?

Just go into security/privacy settings and look for a box to check that says " install apps from unknown sources" or some such language.

Then download it and load it into your Android device and then use a File manager to locate it. Then just click it. It should install.

OP said Goole Play is not an option for VLC for Android.

We are tellign him to use MX Player, because it's just as good, if not even better than VLC. MX Player he can actually get from Google Play.
