I love my Tab S but the volume level of the built-in movie player is a little low (probably due to elderly ears :-))


Is it possible that an add-on movie app (free or otherwise) might provide a little more noise?


PS: Dunno if it's relevant but the movie sound is coming to me via Harmon\Kardon bluetooth headphones.


However, on reflection, I don't think it's anything to do with bluetooth, because if I just listen to music or e-books through the cans, the volume is more than adequate.


So I think it must be the default movie player that's responsible for the reduced volume.

I have the Tab 10.5, I use MX Player pretty much exclusively.


I just tried MX vs the Samsung Video app and they have similar level and quality through the speakers. Your headphones may be different perhaps?


Have you checked all the volume levels are up? It's probably likely but worth a look just in case.

Thanks K. Yeah, volumes are maxed with the internal settings, button and cans.


And as I said, volume is more than good with music.


So what's that app called again?

MPlayer,  you may need to download a codec too but the app will inform you if it needs it. It's from the play store,  not sideloaded.
