    Default Samsung galaxy tab as DLNA client

    Dear Dennis,
    I have been using Mezzmo for more than one year and I'm extremely satisfy with. Last week I buy Samsung Galaxy tab and try to make it being DLNA client. Reading your forum, I install (on galaxy tab) iIMediaShare and RockPlayer. I connect galaxy tab to network over wifi while my server has ethernet connection to my Pirelli adsl-router. I have customize SamsungGalaxyTab.prf by pasting mkv container from RockPlayer.prf.
    Now I can:
    -play music (mp3,...)
    -watch pictures
    -watch video (avi)
    I can't watch dvd format (vob files), and my mkv files do not work fine....movies are slow, video is often corrupt, audio/video is out of sync. Also, subtitles don't work if they are not hardcoded into video.
    Is there a solution ?
    Regards,
    Dejan.

    Dear Dejan,

    I'd recommend just using the shipped "Rock Player" device profile for your Galaxy Tab. When you try to play files listed in iMediaShare, do you select RockPlayer as the default player?

    Dear Dennis,
    I have change to RockPlayer.prf to be profile for my Samsung Galaxy tab. Also, I check Transcode incompatible media files.... Now, mkv and vob want to play at all (tab write message that it can't play mkv). I didn't succeed to make RockPlayer to be default player...
    Any idea?
    Dejan.

    Dejan,

    You need to set the RockPlayer to be default, otherwise it won't work. I think there's a setting somewhere in the system to reset the default players, so perhaps try doing that. I don't remember where it is, but do a quick Google on it.

    Dennis,
    RockPlayer is my default player. When I move check to "Transcode incompatible media files..." it can open all files but mkv movies are slow, video is often corrupt, audio/video is out of sync. Also, subtitles don't work if they are not hardcoded into video. When I put check to "Transcode incompatible media files...", then most mkv and vobs can't open at all.
    regards

    Most likely external subtitles aren't supported by the device.

    You need to transcode the files to make them compatible with RockPlayer - if that fails, please enable logging (see this thread: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging) then try playing one of the failing files and once it fails, stop the server and send the logs to support.

    One more time. When I disable transcoding....everything is working but mkv movies are slow, video is often corrupt, audio/video is out of sync. Also, subtitles don't work if they are not hardcoded into video. When I enable transcoding...I can't open mkv and vob. RockPlayer tells me that it can't play mkv. You want me to enable transcoding and try to play mkv and when it's fail to send you log ?

    When you disable transcoding, the files you are trying to play may be incompatible with what the device/player can handle, thus they appear corrupt or out of synch. Transcoding is meant to create compatible files. Yes, please enable transcoding, try to play one file and once it fails, stop the server and send in the logs.
