Re: Adding an installed app to the list of apps that can play music/audio books
OK. If you are correct, Golfdriver97, then Android 4.0 (and earlier?) at least doesn't have the Windows equivalent of offering you another app not in its list of known apps for working with a file. Ah well, I suppose you can't have everything - Android 5, perhaps?
To answer your question: yes Akimbo can play those files - you just load its profile into Akimbo's library and it plays like any mp3 or aac file. Now I think of it, perhaps this is an Akimbo issue, because if I choose an m4v/wmv file on my system I'm offered a list that includes MX Player Pro, another app I have downloaded and installed like Akimbo. Perhaps I should contact the Akimbo developers to see if this feature could be included in an upgrade.
What's behind my query is that I'm looking at purchasing a Wi-Fi external hdd. My reading of the literature suggests that all you can do with these devices is use the manufacturer's connection/administration app to locate your file then tap it to select what to do with it. I haven't seen any info suggesting that the Wi-Fi connection appears in your extStorage list which would be needed for Akimbo to find it. Perhaps I have missed something, though. I'm looking at a Seagate Wireless Plus unit.
Many thanks for your response, Golfdriver97.
