How to Install Antutu Video Tester 3.0 and Video Sample Files Manually

Orange Pi Development Boards

I’ve been running Antutu Video Tester for my TV box reviews for over  a year. I usually simply install Antutu Video Tester 2.2 from Google Play, then there’s a prompt offering to upgrade to Antutu Video Tester 3.0 (as for some reasons it’s not in Google Play) and once this is done, the app will download the video samples from some server before starting the test. However, recently it’s become a pain as I’ve had numerous problems installing the latest version of the app, and then downloading the video samples, as it may take 2, 3 or 4 hours to download all the necessary files from Antutu server, and once or twice I just gave up.

As the problem occurred yet again today, I decided to install the benchmark app manually. China Gadgets Reviews provides several download links with AVT 3.0 apk and the video samples, and I select my favorite file hosting service: mega.co.nz (188MB).

You’ll get AnTuTu Video Tester 3.0.rar file which contains AnTuTu Video Tester_3.0_300000.apk and VideoBench directory. Installing the apk is easy, but I did not know where to copy the video samples. So I looked for them in a box where I managed to install the benchmark:


/storage/emulated/0/ may differ from device to device, but this is the internal storage, sometimes referred to as internal SD card. So now that we know where to copy the files it’s pretty easy, but since .antutu is an hidden directory, it may not show up in your file manager.
ES_File_Explorer_Hidden_FilesES File Explorer is my favorite Android file manager and that’s the one I used to copy VideoBench directory. First, you’ll need to click on Tools in the left sidebar, and scroll down to enable “Show hidden files”. Now copy VideoBench directory from a USB drive or network share, and go to .antutu directory in the internal_sd (e.g. /mnt/internal_sd/.antutu) to paste the VideoBench directory, and you are done! Launch Antutu Video Tester 3.0, click on Video Test, and after a few seconds the first video should play.

Great article and thanks for figuring this out. I recently had a several hour download of the video samples and thought about doing this same thing but quickly decided it was too much work to figure out where to get and subsequently store the files for future use. Now I have no excuse to be lazy and re-download each time and can just refer to this article.
