Is there any update on this issue?
MX Player can scan/list the files on OTG only when it's mounted on a scannable mount point (Like many Samsung Devices do).
But, Many other devices are mounting OTG drive at a secure location by default. So, all apps need to go through the android Storage Access Framework to access files. Direct file system scanning is not possible in this case. That's why it's not getting listed.
We have already aware of this restriction. We will try to find a better way to handle these restrictions in future.
