Requires Android OS 4.0

 


The Android client is available for download here.   

Current Version: Beta 15.6


 

You'll need to side load it onto your device. It will be available on the Play Store after the beta process.

 

Also, the screens are mostly optimized for my Nexus 7, we'll need to work together to clean up views on devices that are different densities/sizes.

No issues to report, I just wanted to comment that:

 

MB3 for Android is Awesome!!!

 

I haven' had a chance to try to the new features in Beta 13 but will do so in the near future.

Hi Redshirt.

 

I'm seeing an issue when playing videos whereby the full width of the screen is not used internally but is when played externally (VLC).

 

Internal:

2013-10-09%2020.21.38.png

External:

2013-10-10%2012.48.07.png

 

This occurs on both my phone (Nexus 4) and tablet (Nexus 10).

 

TIA.

CBers, is that Fast 5? What format is it?

 

Fast and Furious 6 (mkv).

 

Taken from Dashboard:

 

Video:h264 • eng • 1916 • 812 • 479:203 • 4992 kbps • 23.976 • Default
Audio:aac • eng • 4992 kbps • 2 ch • 48000 khz • Default
 

is this with all video files or specific one?

 

Seems to be all videos - I've tested with 6 or 7 so far.

I don't have this issue (tested from two different devices (Nexus 7 2013 and Note).

Is is direct streaming, transcoding or copy streaming the video?

Interesting that your Audio is transcoded but video not, and mine is the opposite way round even though they look like they have the same properties:

Do you have HLS disabled on your Nexus ??

can you change the video quality setting to higher to force direct stream? (just for testing purposes)

More than 5 mb/s should do it for this video.

 

"Audio:aac • eng • 4992 kbps • 2 ch • 48000 khz • Default"

Is this a "WEB-DL" or other kind of "pre" release format?

 

It's weird that it copy streams the audio but not video... can you also test a MP4?

In my case, it's normal

Video direct (no need to transcode)

Audio; transcode (5.1 track)

 

In your case, it should direct both (if your quality setting are high enough)

 

BTW, good point; I don't use HLS.

try disabling HLS...

 

It's weird that it copy streams both on your last screen... It should have direct stream when it can copy stream both...

Luke's right. I can only directstream if the H264/AAC content is in an MP4 container. Otherwise I streamcopy into a .ts HLS stream. Likewise. If I come across vpx/vorbis content, I can only directstream if the container is mkv, otherwise I streamcopy to a webm container.

ok, thanks... didn't know that.

I only have MKVs with 5.1 audio or MP4 so I never had this situation to test with....

1916 * 812 seems like a really weird resolution for a video. I've seen this non-fullscreen issue once or twice when I scale a video up from a resolution that's smaller than the device screen. Old 4:3 tv shows would be an example.

It's 2:35, or there abouts.
