MX player can play all other streams except from cdn-FastServer on the firestick
MX player can play cdn-FastServer streams on my phone
So there's something that mx player does differently on the firestick compared to my phone
The firestick is android 5 and my phone is android 7 both using the custom codec
So unless there are missing codecs that are native to android 7 & not 5 or just missing from the firestick I don't know what the difference is
are your Mobile and Firestick on the same network?
can you change the MX Player user agent (Check general Settings) to something like your mobile & check again?
FFmpeg should work as long as you are using the right version for your CPU architecture. If your CPU architecture is different, MX Player itself will show the error.
The logs from FFmpeg was clear that it has received 404. But, we couldn't reproduce it any of our devices. We have even directly tried FFmpeg command line version on desktops. It also works. Even if it's an FFmpeg fault, It will affect only HW+ & SW decoders. HW decoder is independent. As we said earlier, it's just a wrapper of android mediaplayer API implementation on your device. So, MX Player does not have many controls. But, It is also having the issues.
It is the clear indication that there is something that is preventing MX from connecting to the CDN. If it possible, can you use any debugging proxies & check the connection logs of yours firestick? In our tests, it receives 302 (Moved Temporarily along with the new URL) and then it connects to redirected URL properly.
If You clearly receives 404, then there might be some server configuration which might be preventing you from connecting to the server.
