What android devices are you guys using for a player?
« on: October 28, 2015, 09:29:02 AM »
Can anyone suggest a cheap android device I can plug into a large HDTV and use as a player?  Would a chromecast allow me to do this?

we do support Android TV, so you can get an Android TV (like Sony) and install the apk right on it.
However, often the CPUs on these TVs are not very strong, so mediaDROIDX will get you be performance and hassle free....

Will the MediadroidX support simple transitions (dissolves) or does it require a GPU box ?

I tried to use the signageplayer on a Sony Andoid TV (Model: W805C  - Android version 5.1.1) and almost everything works great, but it can't play any video format, even using HTML5. Is there any posibility to fix this problem?

it really depends on the device. we are using an Android TV in the office (also Sony) and the video works great... 60fps
