how to access and play rmvb format video on a media server

Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I am a new user to android and just bought my xperia tablet s yesterday.


I was able to access the video files on my media server (a hard disk connected to my wifi router) with the built in video apps,

but when I try to play the files it said format not supported.


I tried to install Vplayer but i couldnt access files on media server with it.


is there any codec I could install so that I could use the built in apps toplay rmvb on media server?

or is there any apps that could allow me to access + play rmvb on media server?


Thanks !

That's strange that VPlayer isn't working. That would have been my top choice. Alternatively, you can try BSPlayer. Here's a link to the free version.


Keep in mind this version is ad-supported, though if you find out that it works, you can always purchase the premium version.


Thanks for your advice :) My problem solved as I installed a DLNA plugin for Vplayer.


I also tried Moboplayer which I think is better than Vplayer in terms of output quality :)
