HI,

It's not relevant to codecs. does it happen with all videos? Can you just reset the settings of MX Player & check again? If the problem persists, kindly collect a bug report immediately after reproducing the issue & share with us. It will help us to understand the issue better.

That's what it says when I choose the bug report option on an affected video. Only VLC recorded videos are affected. All other videos work normally. I tried resetting my settings, but all it did was reset my settings.

First of all thanks for this great App. I have been using since the first day I met with Android, and it is simply awesome. Couple of days back I learned that it has online subtitle feature which is awesome. I like the app once again.

I have a kind of request and question here:
1. YouTube App can cast videos to Smart TVs and IPTV boxes with a oneclick only. My TV is not smart but I have IPTV box. Thnx to that I caqn caqst Youtube videos to my TV screen. Could that be possible for MX Player? One click button and oillaaa, my movie, series etc is on my TV screen....

Would that be possible? if yes how?

Tnx in advance.

On the bug report screen, there is an option to save as a file. Select that too & Press OK. It will save the bug report file in your internal storage. Kindly share that with us.

I saved the bug report, but I don't see any option to share an attachment through this site. It saved as a .zip file.

Hi,

there is a manage attachment option on the reply page. If you can't find, kindly upload it on any cloud storages like Google Drive or Dropbox & share the link.

This should be it.
According to the logs, FFmpeg has failed to get the video parameters (like resolution, frame rate).
It looks like an issue with your encoding settings.
Can you share a clip with us? If it's not possible in public you can share the link by private message.

We will investigate it further & will find a workaround for you.

MX Player pro: playing a video on 5.5" android LP smartphone I can see the symbol to rotate the screen to landscape/portrait (a square with a couple of arrows around it), which works when mirroring via miracast.
If I use an 8" tablet (wifi only), android LP and very same updated app version, I don't have that function, so I can't rotate it.
Is it by design or am I missing something? To me, I am using same settings in both cases.

Sending intent via Automate

It's not possible to directly use. But, If you are developing your own app, it's possible to pass the http headers through intent.
Kindly read https://sites.google.com/site/mxvpen/api for more info.

I used Automate (quite similar to Tasker on xda) to send an intent but stuck at Extras part since it's Dictionary type while MX Player takes "headers" as String type. Otherwise, with non-referer url, it worked perfectly.

Automate's documentation: https://llamalab.com/automate/doc/block/activity_start.html
What is the correct syntax to input Referer header into this intent ?

Edit: StringArray did the job. (Thanks to Henrik from LlamaLab)

can you export your settings & share with us?
It will help us to understand better. If the device reports as TV, it will be disabled.

SBS Subtitle request

Hi,
i don't know if is it the right place to post a request sorry for this... Like the title i search in this forum but i can't find nothing to see subtitle with a google cardboard (or similar) when i watch a 3d movie (side by side for instance). Mx Player only show normal subtitle in the center of the screen but for the 3d films the subtitle need to split in the two half of the screen. Probably this request it's already done before but i can't find... If there is no possibility to do that i suggest to implement it! :p
Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately, MX Player is yet to be optimized for the 3d mode or VR devices. Subtitle support for VR will be implemented when we implement the VR feature into MX Player itself.

How mx player does its font caching?Take it from /system/fonts?
So if i add new fonts to that folder and redo the font caching(clear font cache)will the newly added fonts get cached too/displayed?

    I have just installed latest free version from Play Market.
    So many ads! In file list between file names, over video on pause. And at the bottom of screen, as before. Whats going on?

    It's already reported in another thread.

    This issue is a consequence of android bug that exists on 6.0. This is reproducible only when using native activity chooser for any streaming video (or a remote file). Once you set any app as default, other apps (including Stock one, Google Photos, MX, VLC, BSPlayer) will vanish from activity chooser (except some activities like ES media Player) after clearing the defaults. It was fixed on many nexus devices by Google in 6.0.1. I am not sure whether Nexus 9 is also patched or not.

    Temporary solutions:
    1. Just install any new video player (or intent intercept) that you have never installed. Then open a remote video like smb or it may be any other streaming locations. Now you can see all misssing items.

    2. Alternatively you must find the application which was set as default earlier. It's one of the application currently listed. If are unsure, uninstall one by one & check.

    You can use any one solution from above. Once you got the list back, you can uninstall any new app you have installed or install the application which was set as default earlier.

    Anyway Good News is that, I have already found the workaround & conveyed to the developer as well. It's internally fixed. Next version will bring the workaround for this Android Bug & some more tweakings also done to improve file association.

    Hi Guys,
    In Note 4's stock video player when playing a movie and then screen mirrored to a smart tv the player/screen would turn black to save on battery. Is there a way to do that on MX Player?
    Thanks!
    The stock player probably casts video. MX has no casting feature at the moment, see the pinned topic: http://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/mx-player/sticky-mx-player-chromecast-t2725253
    Hello,

    Been using a Mediatek MT6592 device but switched to the Galaxy Note5. I missed the ClearMotion feature of the Mediatek processor, I used it with the HW decoder in MX Player. I have the following questions:

    •For best picture quality, what should I choose? RGB 16-bit, RGB 32-bit, or YUV?
    •Is there an option to enable motion interpolation with MX Player? Or are there plans to include this feature? The MT6592 struggles with motion interpolation, but the Exynos 7420 can probably handle it
    •For best battery life, should I choose HW+ over HW?

    Thanks.
    YUV if your device can handle it. I don't think the ffmpeg package includes motion interpolation (MX uses ffmpeg as a base). HW+ and HW should both use approximately the same amount of power.

    What's the difference between sw, hw, hw+ decoder. I'm on a nexus 4 usually playing 720p videos. Is there one that would be better? Also when I play 1080p, sw has better quality that hw. Is there a reason for that?
    HW+ > HW > SW in that order, use HW+ where available. HW and HW+ use less power.
