How to Download MX Player for PC or Laptop (Windows 7/8/10)

To watch videos, we need a video player!

There is a default video player on all of our devices be it our computer or mobile phone. But, default one doesn’t support a broad array of formats, and there is the need of some third party video player software or app.

When it comes to Windows VLC is one of the best video players available online. And, for Android smartphones, MX player seems to be the best player among all.

What is MX Player?

MX player is one of the best video player apps available for Android with powerful hardware acceleration, multicolor decoding, subtitle gesture, kids lock, and many other advanced features. It is said to be the best video player for Android.

Since this is indeed a great video player, you might want to get it for your PC as well to try it out. Don’t you?

I am sure you might want to do it to enjoy it on your computer as well. A person like me who uses the computer more than phones would love to get it on PC as well.

Download MX Player for PC or Laptop on Windows  7/8/10

There is no rocket science involved downloading MX Player on windows and using it there. Though MX Player is not designed to run on your Windows computer, there are ways that you can employ to use it on your Windows computer.

There are Android Emulators, or you call it app players available that you can use to enable yourself to use Android apps on your Windows computer.

The very first step is to install either BlueStacks or YouWave on your computer as these are those emulators that enable you to run any Android app on your PC.

For now, we use BlueStacks as our example.

Once you are done downloading BlueStacks, install it on your PC. You can watch the video below to check out the process of downloading and installing BlueStacks on your computer:

The installation process is just like other software, so you just have to run the setup file which you downloaded from the link I shared already. Once the installation is done, click “Finish” button.

Now, this is the time to run BlueStacks which you can do by double-clicking on its icon on the desktop.

When it is opened, click on Search. And type MX Player.

On typing, you will see “No Results” but below that, you will see “Search Play for mx player”. Click on that to install MX Player on your PC.

Now, once the download process is complete, you can use MX Player on your Windows computer. But, every time you want to use this player, you have to open MX Player, and from there you need to run MX Player and enjoy watching videos.

In this whole process, BlueStacks download may take up a little extra time, but that is worth because from next time if you need to install any Android app on your PC, you don’t need to spend the time to download BlueStacks as it is already on your computer. All you do is to search for that particular app within BlueStacks and install.

This way, you can easily download MX Player to your Windows computer. For any reason, if you are not able to work with BlueStacks, you can try YouWave as well. It does work in quite similar fashion.

Many different BlueStacks alternatives are out there which you can use to download MX Player or any other Android app on your PC.


If you are PC lover, you might want to use Android apps on PC as you want to use them at your comfort, and that is where, BlueStacks, YouWave, and similar Android emulators come into use.

I am sure you are now able to download, install, and use MX Player on your PC or Laptop.
