Hi guys, please help me out.
Sometimes I want to browse through my videos on my phone using ES File Explorer. Whenever I try to play a video, a list of applicable video players pops up. Of course, MX Player is on the list and I set that to default.
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.
Turn your mxplayer from hardware (HW) to software (SW) decoding. The button is on the main screen. I bet it says HW. Software decoding supports more file types including mp4 and mkv. Failing that, just rename your file with a avi extension (let mx player sort it out), then you will be able to select mxplayer from the list of players. L8r D
