I am using ed file Explorer coupled with mx player and my. My files seem to stream very slowly from my computer. Anyone have any ideas how to increase the buffer? They are cached on an ssd and it does not make sense that I am having such a slow down.

There is a similar report over here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=52331493

As per the report there is a pocket drop between ES to MX. Try some other file msnagers.

It may fix the issue.

I use File Manager HD for the same purpose and it works perfectly. I have a link to the network folder with my videos on the homescreen and it opens as instantly as any other map.
Seeking through videos is almost as smooth as local files, but that might be because it is actually on an external HDD, it may even be a lot faster on an internal SSD.

I use Root Explorer to get videos off an SMB network drive and it's also reasonably smooth.

When you use root you can't stream though correct? I have root Explorer as well.

... What do you mean by that? You can add an SMB address to Root Explorer by adding a new tab.

Just switched to Root Explorer!

Streaming is a lot smoother via Root Explorer for me...

However, MX player doesn't automatically pick up the subtitles like it used to do on ES..
Anyway around that? Because i can't browse to the SMB drive via the Subtitle panel of Mx Player..

Checked the same file via ES, worked perfectly...
Extra info: The file name is the same(exactly the same)..for both the video and the .srt file...

Am i doing something wrong?? Please Advice! I really need subtitles..

I'm not sure if it can pickup on external subs via network stream as I've never tried before; all my videos have embedded subs.

If you're big on network playback, I suggest trying BubbleUPNP DLNA app: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1118891
