I have had my Galaxy Nexus, and subsequently, MX Video player since launch, and have never had an issue playing .avi files. Now for some reason, i cannot play some video files - see image below. The videos that wont play have titles that are grayed out, and they will not open, let alone play. One of them i have audio, but no video. Im not sure if this has something to do with the new 4.04 update, or some other issues (i dont necessarily own the dvd's for these movies). Is there some sort of CODEC issue i should look to update, or anything.
These same files all play just fine off of my external hard drive on my PS3, but i travel a lot, and watch movies via MHL-HDMI from my phone, and would like to resolve the issue.
To make matters worse, the files play on my Ipad, and i am somewhat ashamed to admit that, considering i hate everything apple stands for (the only reason i use an ipad is because work gave it to me).
Anyways, if anyone has any advise they can give me, it would be appreciated. Thanks!!
Did you have to reinstall MX player after flashing a rom or using Titanium B/U? When I flashed IMM76K MX player was set back to defaults. Some of the xvid files I had wouldn't play anymore. Then I remembered that some encoding settings didn't work with hardware. decryption. I had to use software decryption . This setting shows as a S/W or H/W on the screen.
Today i found a fix for this problem on MX video... You just gotta select s/w decoder, it is in the top right corner (you probably will see a H/W button, tap there and then select S/W decoder)
I just registered an account in this site to thank you. You saved me a lot of time! My problem was "mx player" could play .avi files but it was not able to forward backward! I changed decoder from the icon you mentioned and now it is working fine!
