    Anyone have a recommendation for a video playback app? Specifically I want to be able to control the video (brightness, contrast, etc) and be able to zoom in on parts of the video during playback.

    I think MX PLayer will do what you want (I use this almost exlucsively):

    The third screenshot shows the controls (swiping up and down on the right side of the video will raise/lower the brightness and it supposet pinch to zoom. There are probably other players as well, but I really like MX Player.

    +1 for MX Player, although I wasn't sure if you could zoom, so I was hesitating to say anything!

    Thanks for the info! MX Player does have everything I want. The only thing now is it appears to "stutter" a bit during playback. Might be a performance issue. I'll shut down some applications when I get a chance and try it again.

    It might play more smoothly if it's on Hardware Decoding. While playing, make sure it says "H/W" at the top. If it says "S/W'," tap it and select H/W instead.

    Speaking of which, do you use H/W or H/W +?

    I think H/W+, but I'm not really sure about the difference.
