    yes back to the main screen MINIX. I did get Google fixed. You must have read it before I could edit it out.

    Another issue I found is I have an extensive digital movie collection. It does mount my 1TB HD but I can only use the 4k movie player. The other players skip and are choppy when I use those.. I will keep trying different movies there not all the same format but there not anything abnormal MP4,AVI, MKV , WMA some others.

    Which XBMC version are you using? Have you made any modification using wizards? Are you using an advancedsettings.xml file? When these crashes happen are they when playing local files or streaming from internet/local network?

    Are you using XBMC to play your movie collection from you HDD (I'm assuming its directly connected to the box)?
    Is there any issue using the 4K player, or any reason why you want to use another player?

    *It adapts to TV like Google TV.
    *² If you want to install another Free Tv for IPTV app, you will also be able to add m3u.

    All of these apps needn't Root!

    Otherwise other app free were not working well
    - *Popcorn Time (from the Internet) -> English Movie Video Streaming (support subtitles) choppy videos
    - Spuul (from Google Play Store) -> Inidan Movie Video Streaming choopy videos
    - YouTube for Android TV (from the Internet) -> It can't be installed
    - Open Launcher for Google TV (from the Internet) -> It can't be installed
    *Payment required so that it is built-in VPN.

    Who know about that (not working) and tried to work again well, please give me any advice.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thats just an
    Its just an android thing. Not every app will work on every device. Some apps are specifically built for certain devices/android versions, and won't work on other devices/android versions.

    Unfortunately, Google+ is not yet available for Minix X8-(H), at least according to Minix feedback. Google+ is posted as a requested feature in the corresponding thread.
    What I found in the mean time to handle the Google+ photos is "Tool for Picasa, Google+ Photo": https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=larry.zou.colorfullife&hl=en

    Thanks for the reaction, i have found that also it works ok, but... when you want some extra things you need to upgrade to premium version.

    I also found the following one which seems to be able to make use of all the photo sites, will give this a go this week.

    You need to be more specific about what games you have problems with. I have installed many android games (and emulator games) without any problems.
    Not all android games will be compatible with the Minix hardware/firmware.

    Emulators allow you to play ROMs of older console games (PSX, Sega Megadrive, Nintendo etc). If you google android game emulators you'll gets loads of info.
    You should also check out the General Apps section of the forum for more info on games apps - http://www.minixforum.com/forums/minix-general-android-apps.13/
