I have a load of videos stored on my Laptop and would like to be able to stream them to the Nexus 7. I downloaded Mediahouse for the Nexus 7 which picks them all up perfectly. The problem I'm having is actually getting them to play on the tablet!
I've installed all the usual suspect media players (VLC, BSPlayer, DICE, MXPlayer, ES Media Player) but mostly to the same result.
Any MKV files I have open up and play fine in both MXPlayer and BSPlayer.
The AVI files (of which are the majority) just won't open. The only exception is the ES Media Player which will play them but won't allow me to fast forward or rewind. Not ideal, then!
To be clear, the few AVI files I have stored ON the Nexus 7 itself will open and play fine in all the players. It's just when it comes to streaming them. They all look like they're trying to open them but nothing ever actually opens.
I've tried changing the decoder on MXPLayer from HW to SW but it made no difference. I'm sure there must be a simple solution but I have run out of ideas now!
Can anyone fix this for me?
