Here's the problem: When I want to play videos on the network (from my PC) using ES File Explorer, the list does not show MX Player at all so I can't use it to play my videos and most of them are even in MKV format. Even VLC for Android that I installed for testing won't show up on the list. I was surprised that QuickPic's video player is on there and I didn't even know they had a player. I can play videos over the network using MX Player w/ no problems on my Asus Zenfone 5 and OnePlus X which has Lollipop. I'm assuming this could be something with Marshmallow since my current device is a Moto X Pure with Android 6.0. I already emailed the dev team of ES and I yet to receive a reply from them.
I was thinking, if QuickPic can be detected by ES, maybe something could be done with MX Player as well.
I was facing same problem.
It doesn't need to switch either your file browser of player.
Just go to settings >> Access Permissions >> App Links >> Go to MX player & do the following settings..
"Go to "Open Supported links" & choose " Open in this App" OR "Ask Every Time".
It worked on OPX ( Marshmallow).
Hope it works for you..
