Music

The LG myTouch Q ships with the barest version of the stock Android music player. It has zero features enabled save for providing a way to navigate through your library and play some songs.

The myTouch Q has the newest version of the Android Market, which has a music store built into it. You can purchase music directly from the market if you wish.

Slacker is on board for your streaming music needs if that's the way you rock and roll.

Video

The myTouch Q has the stock Android video player, which handles both recorded and side-loaded content. It also has the stock YouTube application, which continues to be really good. You can also rent movies from the Android Market.

If you're a glutton for punishment and don't mind shelling out an extra $10 per month, you can use the T-Mobile Live TV app. This app streams video content to the myTouch Q, but the quality is really low -- when it works at all. Navigating the guide is sheer torture thanks to the myTouch Q's sluggish performance. Once video begins to stream, it's mostly OK unless you hit a hiccup in the network.

As far as sharing media is concerned, the myTouch Q ships with software called "SmartShare." This uses the DLNA protocol to push music, pictures, and videos to other DLNA-certified devices, such as HDTVs.
