Dear Devs,
I've encountered a strange behavior when I playing MKV file from SMB through ES File Explorer. MX Player begin playing fine with HW/HW+, but when I pause for a long time, for example: receiving a call for 5 minutes or longer, MX Player can't resume smoothly. It start lagging, and freezing in both video and audio more than 2 minutes. But if I press back and re-tap file from ES File Explorer to resume, MX Player resumes in few seconds.
I don't know if this is normal and could MX Log collector can get some logs? If need log or media info, I will try to get them when I come home tonight.

It's a known issue with the ES file explorer. There is a pocket drop. Can you try any other apps which can stream?

I personally use FX file explorer or BubbleUPnP & never had such issues.

I can't find SMB connection in FX File Explorer, does SMB in PLUS addon?

Does MX player have internal SMB protocol support?
When playing SMB file through ES, data comes to MX through ES's SMB protocol?
That's why the ES cause the lag, right?

Yes. ES uses it's SMB protocol & stream the video using localhost url.

Fx needs plus add on for network features.

Hi @ktsamy,
I've tested FX last night and it doing well.
But MX player can't resume from FX.
Every time I start a file from FX it will start from beginning.
Could you help to verify this?
MX from ES can resume playing.
