    Default Video files on USB drive played on co-star

    OK, have the co-star and sometimes love it, but today I want to throw it out the window. Usually use plex to stream video files from my PC, but that doesn't always work very well. So today I tried a USB drive. Is playpoint my only choice? Cause it won't play either of them.

    This device is so frustrating, if the hardware was a bit beefier and there were more apps, it would be awesome..

    Any options for playing those files?

    Default Re: Video files on USB drive played on co-star

    Know what you mean about alternatively loving it and wanting to throw it out a window. I had the same problem as you. On top of that, when I was able to play videos through playpoint, it would squash the aspect ratio to 4:3. Even streaming videos from my computer through plex would do the same.

    Ended up spending $3 on a program called GTV Box video player and that resolved my issues and everything is working. Kind of frustrating to have to shell out a few extra dollars to utilize an advertised feature.
