Even I am stuck with the same issue, recently bought VU 55 premium android and Mxplayer is not detecting my NTFS External HDD. I have tons of 4k Videos there that I want to play with Mxplayer as it allows to include audios to my local language. But no luck. Though all videos with different codecs are playing well in default video player and TV is giving stunning picture display I am still disappointed and annoyed with this. Hope they update and solve this issue soon.

This issue is bugging me as well. I hope we get native support for ntfs.

For now, i have kind of solved it by installing
"exfat/ntfs for usb by paragon" app. It helps mount the ntfs disk and then lets us open files via total commander app.

By using total commander, we can even play video files in other video players like mx player.

Hi Guys,

I reached out to vu support and their response was the best i have experienced. They understood the issue that ntfs is not working for apps like vlc etc. They took a few days and mailed me an ota update. After installing the update via usb, ntfs is now working natively for my 50 inch vu premium tv.

Hats off to vu.

Hope they roll out ntfs suport for all soon.

Uploaded the ota and details.
I have added details in my original comment.

Thanks man! The ota version in the Steps file seems to indicate this is for the 65” tv. I have 50 inch model (50-OA). Do you think it’ll work on that?

Current build is 8.0.0, Dec 2018 Security path OTT.180130.001

My upgrade from usb button is greyed out for some reason. Can’t seem to get it to work. Usb is formatted in fat32 with only the pkg file it plugged into usb 2.0 port at the back. Did you face anything like this?

Have plugged in the back usb port only. What exact steps did you take to upgrade?

Edit:

Got it to work with the an old generic USB 2.0 drive. The TV wasn't detecting any of the newer branded usb 3.0 drives as flashable (They were being detected but the flash from USB button was grey'ed out). It is essential that the usb 2.0 drive is fat32 formatted and have no other files/folder in it.

Another way to flash the pkg file is the turn off the TV completely, plug out the power cable and let the capacitors drain for about 20-30 seconds. Then plug in the power cable and keep the power button on the TV or remote pressed for 10-15 seconds. You'll get a black screen with a "Loading..." message. Normal VU flash screen or android boot logo will not appear.
