Yes, you can enable DTS codec support on MX Player. It is working on my Nexus 7 (2013) perfectly. However, DTS audio is not working on my Galaxy S4 with the latest version of MX Player even with custom codec loaded. Not sure why… Anyway, Kodi 14.0 Helix media player comes to rescue. Kodi is XBMC actually. Yup, it has a new name. And loaded with new features like capable of playing back h.265 (also known as HEVC) and VP9 video codecs. However, decoding of h.265 is entirely software based for the moment. So it won’t work well on Android and iOS devices with low processing power. But should work fine on powerful PC system.

Yeah… Kodi is working great with my newly added DLNA media server. I am streaming most of media from local NAS now. However, I still prefer MX Player as it is much user friendly on mobile devices. But Kodi stays on Galaxy S4 due to DTS audio codec support.

Remote desktop function is available on Windows platform long time ago. I always use it when I was a system engineer to troubleshoot server issue remotely. A great tool for IT support. Personally, I prefer Windows Remote Desktop function as it is a lot faster than realtime screen sharing mode like VNC provides. Both have pros and cons. Realtime screen sharing mode is preferred when other remote access to your PC for support / troubleshooting because you can see what he is going at the same time. Guest what? Google has a same tool too – Chrome Remote Desktop.

CyanogenMod ROM is my favourite Android ROM for HTC HD2. But I seldom use CM ROM since Samsung Galaxy S2 because CyanogenMod team does not have Samsung Exynos SoC source code. So you can’t enjoy all the features that can be found on Samsung own firmware. But what make me try CyanogenMod 10.1 Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean ROM for Samsung Galaxy S3? Force 4x MSAA feature (Enable 4x MSAA in OpenGL ES 2.0 apps) in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is the one. There is no Samsung firmware based on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean yet. So install CyanogenMod 10.1 ROM on Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the way to test 4x MSAA feature (Google Nexus 7 with Tegra 3 does not support MSAA). Besides, you can also try out other Android 4.2 Jelly Bean features too…
