Video 9.1.A.0.8_1Sony Mobile has today rolled two updates to its Video application, depending on which handset you are running. For handsets on older firmware, Sony is rolling Video build number 8.0.A.2.4 (upgraded from 8.0.A.0.8) which changes the name of the application from “Movies” to “Video”.

Another update is also rolling for newer handsets running Lollipop with build number 9.1.A.0.8. For these handsets, the app was already renamed from Movies to Video in the previous build (9.0.A.0.20). Sony says that this 13.0MB update improves the layout of the main view and Devices in the drawer menu. Other changes include improved app stability and bug fixes.

    Why two different versions?

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    WHILE OTHER MAKING NEW SMARTPHONES still making updates –‘
    salute to the man who makes this strategies for sony

  • dimz

    9 series must be intended for devices with Lollipop, from what I understand…

  • japolis

    wondering why xpblog still says “handsets”

  • rubinaish

    Interesting: Even without Lollipop on my Z, I was already on 9.0.A.0.20 and could now update to the newer version.

  • Movies app force closes upon launch on my Z2 which makes it completely unusable. I’ve tried to wipe its data and cache, doesn’t help. This had better fix it.

  • aiamkesz

    I hadn’t received any of these updates (z1 compact) the “What’s New” app didn’t show anything.
    I’ve installed the apk files manually, does it mean that I’ll never get these updates automatically?

    They’re being loyal to their older customers. I have an Xperia Z and feel good that they’re still working on it to release updates that often… Most probably I’d buy a new Xperia rather than any other phone because of that. And true! “Haters gon hate!” :D

    If you don’t like they’re still updating their products, you’re free to buy another brand. If they do, wrong; if they don’t, wrong.

  • Lee Jia Hui

    Go to “Settings”, “About Phone”, “Software Updates”, and check for updates…
    If there any app’s update, it will show at “What’s New” app.
    I’ve tried it.

  • Ajmal Roshan

    But, I have kitkat, I got a 9 series update and its working fine too bro

  • Vasilis K.

    Yeah. If they want to please us customers of them, they should add in the next update some codecs to support videos like mpeg, flv etc. Until then MX Player!!!

  • dimz

    I have jelly bean 4.3 and 9 series crashes on it, so it must need at least Kitkat to run…

  • Ajmal Roshan

    Yup. You might be right

  • dimz
  • Bhandamme

    please fix bug, video can’t open or if opened it can’t be paused or forwarded if there are subtitles , but if there are no subtitles it works well
