Update 2017: The stock youtube app now gives you a few options for playback rate when you click on the three dot manu when playing a video, for most phones. One Way Download an external player that lets you control the speed, like BSplayer. Then in the youtube app when you get to the video you want to watch click the Share button and then select the ...

The location for those videos on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is as below: Internal storage/Android/data/com.google.android.youtube/files/Offline/(system generated folder name)/streams There might be a minor change to this location or path on other Android devices, but all those downloaded files are saved as .exo files, in an Internal Storage of a device! ...

The YouTube app does not have that feature. However, it's available if you use a browser in desktop mode. Here's what it looks like on Chrome (on desktop mode):

You can do that via adb or a terminal app (in the latter case, ommit the leading adb shell from the examples): read settings: adb shell getprop sys.usb.config find valid settings: adb shell grep usb.config= /init*rc change settings: setprop with the appropriate values (e.g. adb shell setprop sys.usb.config "mtp,adb" or adb shell setprop sys.usb.config "ptp,...

On Android Chrome 54, turn off autoplay of media by going to Settings - Site Settings - Media - Autoplay and Block autoplay. This feature is disabled if you have data compression enabled in your Android Chrome browser.

VLC media player beta for android was just released today. You can take a look at it. I am not sure if it works fine on Ace though

Yes it is possible. I'm doing this with several devices for amateur radio and video production with KineMaster Pro. For amateur radio, I use the DigiMaster MiniProSC connected via OTG cable to a Nexus 9 via OTG cable. I also do this with SignaLink usb connected the same way. Both of these devices have internal usb sound cards with audio in, audio out, and ...

Android comes with a basic video player called "Movies", although it might not show in the application list for some devices. To use the built-in player, you need to use the Gallery or a file manager to invoke the Movies app on the movie file you want to play. Alternatively there are many alternative movie players on the Market. Here are a few threads to ...

The majority of web based email providers have a limit of 10MB for the size of the attachment of every message sent. Since an email message will often pass through several mail transfer agents to reach the recipient, some or probably all of them impose size limits due to the storage capabilities they have to deal with. This is due to the fact that every ...

HD Player and Real Player sound promising to play mkv videos smoothly. But, if video quality is overloading your hardware capabilities, no software can help playing that HD video smoothly. However, you can do one thing: Install Hot Reboot from Play Store and run it once before video playback. It'd reduce load on system. If you're unable to play that video ...

Video The Galaxy Tab 10.1 will work best with MP4 files (H.264 encoding) at 720p (1280x720). Do not use Entropy Coding. I'm noticing a few problems with it; it could be the video / my setup though and not the device itself. Use a constant bitrate at a reasonable quality level (RF:20 should be good, or around 1000kbps). Maximum B-Frames should be set to 0, ...

That's weird. I could stream this perfectly on my Android 2.3 stock browser. For you, I'd suggest you do the following :- Download MX Video Player FREE (and a suitable codec for your phone) Enter the URL rtsp://128.112.131.181:554/blackboard/cs/additive_combinatorics/1_luca_trevisan_350k.rm in your stock browser. You'll see something like : The above URL ...

I'm sorry but your device cannot play high-res videos. Your device should be able to handle videos up to 640*360, this is the resolution of HQ YouTube. Note that there's absolutely no point in watching HD videos on your phone. It has a screen resolution of 240 x 320. Anything above this will be scaled down to fit the screen.

Most video recording apps are IMHO limited to 1h non-stop recording, as you can find with a simple Google search, which is probably a safety measure to not let you run out of battery -- as video recording is the biggest consumer (see What can I do to increase battery life on my Android device?). However, a developer can have his app overriding this limit (...

Basic supported video format are 3GPP (.3gp) MPEG-4 (.mp4) WebM (.webm) Matroska (.mkv, Android 4.0+) More Information on Developer site

Using VLC player: play the video tap the screen to bring up the controls click the three dots button click the"playback speed" button adjust to 45 - 50% done It doesn't get you exactly the 24 fps but it's something! I would love to have a way to export the video at 24fps. Or better video editing for built-in Android apps.

I got H.264 (x264 encoder) to play with these settings on my Huawei U8150 Main profile 320x240 (original video was 4:3 which helps, 16:9 or 2.35:1 should become even easier to decode) and tuned with the 'fastdecode' setting I used ffmpeg as the frontend, as Handbrake makes selecting the "fastdecode" option impossible ffmpeg -i "inputfile.avi" \ -...

Right now it is not possible to sync through Play Video, however, you may soon be able to purchase movies from the market and have them stay in the cloud until needed. You could try alternatives such as Box, or Dropbox, (there are many competitors in this file-locker space), they allows you to sync nearly anything across devices. Google Video, at least on ...

First, make that video player default for video files. Then, use Tasker to Open File on boot. Open File action can be found in File action category. Device Boot context can be found in Event ~> System category.

I think the problem might be with the phone. The galaxy ace is at the lower end of the scale hardware wise so I imagine it can't handle HD files.

VLC for Android supports playback speed regulation up to 4.0x, with audio pitch adjustment (optional). The setting is under ⋮ ( Advanced Options). Image source: https://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Android/#Video_playback_interface

You say "Tasker doesn't seem a solution". If you already have Tasker installed you can do the following: Create a task with 6 actions that puts the names of the files in the camera folder into an array, then loops through the array moving files one by one depending on the filename extention. Note, in the IF statements, ~ means Matches, and !~ means Doesn't ...

Bad news it seems. Bug report on Google code The most relevant post is this: Yes. It is as design. "autoplay" is disabled for Chrome for Android It seems that Android 4+ changed the requirements for the play() method to require user interaction. Article on this issue It's worth nothing that many comments refer to getting it to work with a hack/...

Yes, Android supports standard USB audio class devices: Android 5.0 (API level 21) and above supports a subset of USB audio class 1 (UAC1) features: The Android device must act as host The audio format must be PCM (interface type I) The bit depth must be 16-bits, 24-bits, or 32-bits where 24 bits of useful audio data are left-justified ...

Most smartphones have dedicated video encode and decode hardware. It's specifically designed for that task, and it has a fast connection to the memory, and often the decoded video frames can be accessed directly by the compositor hardware so they don't have to be copied (or blitted) into the framebuffer. You wouldn't be surprised that a handheld digital ...

The trick was to put the tablet into Airplane mode and then to take it out of Airplane mode again. Unlike just disconnecting and reconnecting the wifi link, this actually unloads and reloads the wifi stack. Since I did this, it plays videos from youtube, iPlayer, etc just fine.

Apparently YouTube videos downloaded for offline viewing get expired after a certain amount of time. I haven't heard anything official about though. The downloaded videos are stored in the internal storage but they are saved as .exo file format which only the YouTube app can open (you can't play them with any other media player app) The best advice I can ...

Starting from Chrome 47, there's a Chrome flag that is used to turn media autoplay on/off: Disable gesture requirement for media playback. Disable user gesture requirement for playing media elements. Activating this will allow autoplay to work. You can see it by going to this link: chrome://flags/#disable-gesture-requirement-for-media-playback; ...

I am afraid to say this but moving videos between devices is not supported, Yet, AFAIK. Here are few technical details. When user download those videos, using official YouTube app, Android saves those videos on Internal storage(and not on external store such as sd-card)of the device. The path can be something like below: Internal storage/Android/data/...

I just realized that when you move two fingers up and down the left side of the screen (like when you adjust brightness, but with two fingers) the playback speed adjusts accordingly.
