I have a Le Pan S tablet ( that works great for the first little while (20-40 minutes) when I play local video files. Then the player (both BS and MX with correct codecs) switches to software decoding from hardware, and the lag begins. I am trying to find out why it switches. Is it overheating? Something must be going wrong and it's very annoying. Thanks.

Probably because it doesn't have the CPU power to run it well in H/W mode. Might need to find a less demanding version of the video. There's info about this stuff on MX Player's FAQ:

Section #4 has the more relevant info.
