Default [Solved] How to stream Bluray to MX -Player

It would seem that using es-explorer, where it emulates a server, causes a bandwidth or memory bottleneck when full bluray files are streamed to MX-Player.

Does anyone else know how-else I can stream to MX-Player..

What type of server/service can I setup on the PC end so perhaps MX-Player can m0ar-directly receive files..

I am trying to stream files typically 22GB to 38GB, peak bitrate is bluray standard 40Mbit..


I know that the link has enough bandwidth, since I can get over 100Mbit to the Note 3, and 90Mbit to Nexus 7.

I am also sure that the hardware is capable of playing the files, since they play fine from an SD card.

Enable SW Decoder (Network) from Settings > Decoder

Then try again.

I tried enabling software.. the network stats remain the same..

the player itself is even choppier.. seems to only play smoothly (for a second) with HW+, then the server emulation bottle neck occurs

Install mx log collector.
Run it immediately after the problem. It will dump system log...!!!

Else you can do it in a PC...!!

It looks like that network packet is being delayed while begin dispatched from server to MX Player.
This might one of these:
1) Streaming server -> Device
2) Device -> ES Explorer
3) ES Explorer -> MX Player

If you think 1) is not the case, it might be 2) or 3)
Would you try other apps other than ES Explorer, such as BubbleUPnP?

Yea. Es Explorer is definitely the problem

I tried bubbleupnp..

running xbmc on desktop.. everything is working.. streaming to mxplayer.. Wh00t..

Finally watching my pc videos..

the fact that I only have bluray rips didn't help, which meant i couldn't watch ANY of my pc videos.. LOL

Thank ya'll so much...

Damn you Es xplorer, grrrrrrrr................
