Re: Play Movies from Flash USB.... OTG cable and what else?
The unmodified Nexus 7 does not permit communication with external storage devices attached to it's microUSB port. Nexus Media Importer acts like a translator that permits your Nexus 7 to connect and understand the file storage device attached to the microUSB port. However, it ONLY allows READING from the attached storage and all such reading must be made thru the NMI program itself. Further, only certain types of files are recognized, mostly media types.

You can stream movie files to MXplayer, for instance, but you can designate whichever app you have available to receive the stream. If the app can not handle that type of file, it won't work, so something like MXplayer is great because it can play most movie file types and Coding.
