I just bought a MINIX Neo x8 H. Archos works horribly on it. When using trying to play a video only a black screen appears with the traditional play and fast forward button. No video or audio at all. Also, the option to access USB drive on the main page under samba and dnla is not available. Please fix. I love this player. This is not a rockchip like other MINIX TV android players.

I also have an MINIX neo X8-H and I'm using the Archos video app. No problems whatsoever.
Did you try other video material, or is it with every file you select?

With the indexing bug appearing from time to time... it would be great if we get an option to simply re-index manually. would be awesome and solving a lot of annoyances with "rebooting 4 times until its willing to index". thank you!

Is it possible to add a function to sort Movies by genre? Or add other options other than just TV and Movies. Kids movies or Kids TV would be good to separate what's for them and what's for the adults.

Other than that I really love the player.

Is there a way of scanning the .nfo files on my NAS for TV shows offline? My Android Set Top Box has no Internet connection, so I'd like the app to "search offline".

Hello,  Is there anyway of changing the name of a searched movie so that they are in order of appearance? (IE.. the Harry Potter Series,etc..)

Is Archos compatible with Kit Kat on a Minix Neo X7?

I am using a custom rom with Kit kat and the player doesn't play the videos smoothly. On the same box, MX Player is fine.

I tried using the firmware from the X7 (010) and same thing happens, video doesn't play smoothly.

Also, If I use the launch another player option, subtitles are not loaded on the player used (MX Player), but the subs are loaded fine if I open the file from MX.

How can I fix this?

I use Archos on my MINIX Neo X7 without problems. Using Quick Shot v3 ROM. Standard kernel is 1080p from install. Still have issues with Ethernet connecting and disconnecting so use WiFi. No noticeable play back problems.

The played videos are not that large though. Between 300mb - 1.5gb.

Good day! I love Archos Video Player.  All our Android devices (Box and Smartphones) have it and we use it 24/7. :D 

That being said, I have a question.  I have the Looney Tunes Golden Collection, ripped the dvd per episode, and wanted to place it in an organized manner.  Thetvdb shows that Looney Tunes is not by Season number, but Season Year (Example, Season 1930).  How will Archos find it and organize it properly? Really stumped here.  Any help will be great!

Hello all!
Love this app. Much easier, cleaner and basic features compared to  Beyond XBMC. I'm trying to configure app on my "Tronsmart NX" Android TV (w/Finless ROM 1.4 ROM). Had some issues seeing my movies on the external HDD connected via USB with was resolved after restarting the app. How can I configure the LIBRARY for TV Shows and Movies separately? Don't want my kids movies mixed in with my "R" rated and my TV show too.

Thanks in advance

Any news about the bug not making it possible to download subs when streaming upnp? Has been a while now. Can't get it to work in file overview nor when playing the movie.

Can someone please tell me why the app has my external sd card ghosted out?
I have searched here and Googled for an answer, and I realise it's probably something to do with the kitkat restrictions with external sd cards but I'm running a custom rom and don't have the restrictions m

Love the app on jelly bean 4.1.1, after latest update to the app though it had duplicates of my movies. It pulls them directly from my xbmc server which used to work just fine. Now I can't remove the indexed folder. Well I can remove it but the movies and the duplicates are still there after removing them. I can't find any toggle to clear it or remove them manually. So now I have 2500 movies half of which are duplicates that are stuck in the player library. Also can't leave a review or rate your paid for app on Google play even though that's where I got it from. All my TV shows and anime show up fine with posters and info so why do the movies keep giving me such a hassle? I just checked again and oddly enough when I press on the movies button it shows the dupes but if I use the scrolly wheel view I guess, I don't know what its called. I uploaded a screenshot, anyways the movies in that list show up fine with no duplicates either, which would be fine but I don't use that view, for the simple fact I have 4 tb of videos and I prefer a list view with details.... some help before I have to uninstall and wipe hours literally hours of indexing would be appreciated....and apparently now Google plus won't upload my screenshots wish you guys had a real site and a damn forum to go to ....

Hello, do you know why I have this error message?

I bought the app with my Google account but I get this message when I'm trying to install it on my second tablet

On this second tablet, I'm connected on the Google play store with my wife's account and mine.

Where do I place subtitle files so I can load them manually when none found online by app - and can you please add more sources instead of just opensubtitles.org? Thanks! :-)

You have to place the subtitles next to the video file, both must have the same name.

Can you add the detection of a second screen? I use miracast to watch on tv and I would love to have Archos send the video only to the tv. This is done successfully with the Google Movies app where it detects the second screen and shows the video on the tv while the tablet shows other non-video info.

Also the ability to filter out the videos I've already watched, leaving only the view of the unwatched.

Thanks.

Honestly, I have no clue. I tend to delete .SRT files.
