This tutorial will show you how to install Wuffy Player on FireStick and Android TV Boxes. This guide will work equally well with Fire TV, Fire Cube, Mi Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, Android Smart TV, etc.
What is Wuffy Player? Wuffy Player is one of the most popular video players available. It is a versatile multimedia player that allows you to play media in any format. This media player is usually used with the third-party FireStick apps as their default player. You may hardly need to use it separately. It is rather a supporting app.
However, aside from using the app to play live streaming videos, if you like, you can also use the Wuffy Player Firestick app to play local media files on your device.
Wuffy Player offers easy screen controls, allowing you to adjust the brightness and volume of any video so you can enjoy them in the best way possible. It’s a must-have app to enjoy a flawless streaming experience as it is compatible with most streaming apps.
