I use miniDLNA to stream videos from my Ubuntu computer to my Galaxy tablet running Android 4.4 and BubbleUPNP.
Some video files don't play at all. Some play the video, but no sound. It doesn't seem to be just a matter of file format. Sometimes, for example, some
.MKV files will play fine, and others wont. Some
.AVI files work, and others don't.
All the video files play on my computer without any problem, so I assume it's just a matter of some codecs not being available on my Android device. Or something to do with compatibility.
Is there a way I can make my Android device able to play a wider variety of formats, if not all video formats?
