It looks like the drive is mounted in /mnt/media_rw/, but MX Player can't access that directory.
Yes, I know there is a workaround by browsing to the individual videos and hitting play one-at-a-time. But I'd really like to be able to see the list of videos natively within MX Player, so that I can jump to the next video without having to go back into a file manager.
From Android 6, OTG drive is officially supported by Android but in completely different way.
In fact, OTG drive is not mounted in file system but can only be access via Android's unique Storage Access Framework(SAF).
Unfortunately, listing files on SAF is not yet supported, but will be supported in the future.
