Clipshow is a free touch screen video player that can be used to play movie clips, similar to a slideshow viewer. Just select a folder that contains videos and push Play. Can also play single movies in full screen HD resolution. This app will only play video files that are natively supported by your device. Not all AVI, WMV, and MPG files may be supported.

Clip Show is now optimized for Windows 8.1.
