Black screen in between Video transitions on MediaDroidx
« on: June 15, 2016, 04:37:44 PM »
Running MediaDroidX and recently started using Videos...tried MP4, MOV, FLV formats.
All of them either cause the screen to go black or to have a black screen in between them.
Was told by support that this was problem with GPU and Android update.

so couple of questions :
1- Will there be a fix with software update from you guys.
2- was told to use Windows instead of Android....so what options are available and comparable to MediaDroidX price ?

Thanks

Are you using our latest mediaDROIDX as it runs video flawlessly at 60fps
I am wondering who told you to use Windows instead of Android as we LOVE Android, support it and optimize for it (especially our mediaDROIDX)
if you are running the latest model:  http://www.digitalsignage.com/_html/mediadroidx.html

please try this video: http://www.digitalsignage.com/videos/BigBuckTestHD.zip

as for transitions, the higher end 3D transitions will need more power and will run better on windows, if that's what you mean...

should run flawlessly...
let me know,

regards

Thanks for the reply.
You can check the chat log...I understand that I can convert to swf and that is currently working but transitions on any video format other than swf gives me a black screen.

What is a high end 3d transition ? I just want to play an mp4 video and either loop it with no black screen appearing or play another mp4 video after first one again with no black screen.

Thanks

Unfortunately, that is currently an android player limitation. But of course our dev. team is always looking for a fix.

Thanks for reply.

What Windows player do you recommend that is small and similar to Mediadroid to play 7 mp4 videos without any Black screen in between the transitions ?

mediaBOX 200 is what we recommend, but we will also support a new windows based stick later this summer....
