What Is BPlayer?
BPlayer is a media player that lets you play local audio and video files and network streams. It supports media files of all formats, including MKV, MOV, AVI, OGG, FLAC, WV, and ACC.
The app supports online video streaming in high quality and supports subtitles. It has a simple user interface and a file manager that organizes your files into videos, folders, and history.
BPlayer is mandatory with certain third-party apps, such as Nova TV. Let’s discuss how to install the media player into your FireStick below.
Attention, FireStick Users!
Governments and ISPs constantly monitor your online activity, and accessing copyrighted content on your Fire TV Stick could lead to serious trouble. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. I strongly recommend getting the best FireStick VPN to mask your IP address and securely stream your favorites.
I personally use ExpressVPN, the fastest and most secure VPN available. Not only is it easy to install on any device, it comes with a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee. Plus, if you're not 100% satisfied, you can always get a refund. ExpressVPN is currently also offering a whopping 3 extra months free on their annual plan!
