    Sorry in advance if I posted this in the wrong section.

    I noticed that when I play movies from terrarium tv nearly all shows play with mxplayer are hw+. The issue is when mxplayer decodes the software it has bad frame drops. If I select just HW it says its not supported, this means I cannot use the stock video player to adapt the refresh rate. Am I missing something? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Nearly forgot its a minix u9-h

    Try using vlc player or if you have updated terrarium tv to the latest version go to settings and select the new built in player

    Hi, I've used vlc player also. It buffers really bad. The only way I can get it to run smoothly is if I open with kodi. Not all streams work with kodi, most of them do. For some reason streaming videos are not supported by the minix. However showbox works fine with default player. It would be good if someone with a minix u9-h could test this issue and get back to me.

    Cheers

    Sorry I don't know any other solutions, let's just hope minix sort the problem.

    Hi, so when you play a movie with terrarium tv and mxplayer does it say hw+ on the top right corner? Could you please also select the android default player and tell me the results? Thanks

    The couple of streams I just tried default was HW. When selected HW+ all still played fine!
    I don't know how to find a stream that defaults to HW+ ?

    Don't know what Android default player is? Don't have any options, only options for other media players that are installed!

    No go my side. If I change mine from hw+ to hw it says HW decoder not supported. I'll see if I can flash the image file this weekend and post back the results. Really appreciate your time. Cheers

    Which version of MX Player?

    Have you dabbled with the MX Player settings?
    All mine are default!

    No all default. Whatever the latest version is from playstore. However it should play with the stock player also that's why hw doesn't work either. When it uses hw it uses the box for video. When it's hw+ it decodes the software, it always defaults to this because it can't use the android box hardware.

    Did a complete flash with a image file and made no difference. When I use showbox everything works fine. Just had a popup saying support for this video codec is missing from your device. (In terrarium one stream). Is there a way to install codecs? I'm thinking it might be a 1080p thing as all showbox movies are 720 and everything is butter smooth.
