So this is what I want to do...
I often view my movies and animes on my Nexus 5.. But sometimes , when I try to play those videos on my ipod 4g or HTC desire C .. The wont play smoothly.. I do know it has something to do with hardware limitations on low end devices.. but I think its pretty unfair for these devices to not play atleast an SD 480p stream smoothly!
I have seen this feature in the MX player called "Enable Hardware acceleration.."
I don't know what it does , but selecting that option on my HTC desire C makes the videos a bit smoother but still the 480p videos wont play properly ... I tried reducing/increasing bitrates and codecs too (mostly H.264/XviD). But still no improvement.
I have my phone rooted too.
So is there any way to make 480p videos work on desire C and similar devices?
I would be really interested to work on it like a project which may target an app or some tweaks with the hardware itself?
