  1. Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a player for MP4 / M4A which handles chapter markers, so can navigate between chapters.
    I'm searching for any OS, so Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Android, iOS.

    On the software tab I found some players for Windows (SEARCH).
    My best player by now is VLC, but Android version doesn't handle chapters. Don't know in iOS.

    So do you know any player which handles chapters in Android and iOS?
    Do you know other players in Linux & Mac OS, other than VLC?

  2. Hmmm ... interesting that the Android version of VLC doesn't handle chapters.

    However, I am confused by your post. You say:

    I'm searching for any OS, so Windows, Linux, Mac OS, Android, iOS.
    but then you say that VLC on Android doesn't handle chapters. Well, I know for a fact that it DOES handle chapters just fine on the Windows version. so if you are searching for "any OS," which is what you wrote, then you've got your answer with VLC.

    If you are only interested in the Android players, then you should state that.

    So, for Windows, use VLC.

  3. Pretty much all the better player in Windows support chapters in mp4/m4v. MPCHC, MPCBE, VLC, KMPlayer, PotPlayer...

    And I just checked VLC on my Android phone -- it supports chapters.

    I may be wrong, but pretty soon he's gonna tell us all about this fantastic player that he found, not that he has aything to do with it.

  5. Thanks guys!
    Right johnmeyer, saying "Any" I meant "All", my english just got better.
    I'm going to share files online so they'll be plaid on any OS.

    Maybe it's the audio file? I made an audio test using ffmpeg and the chapter list seen HERE.
    Using VLC in Windows I could play and change chapters but using VLC in Android there were no buttons for chapters, see screenshots below.
    Please help..

  6. For videos in Android VLC: Press the ... button. Press Chapter. Select the chapter you want from the list. I didn't see the equivalent when playing m4a.
