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.

One of the best Android video player out there ~ MX Player does not support DTS codec officially (same apply to MX Player Pro version). Yes, you can play video with DTS soundtrack but with no sound output. However, you can enable DTS codec support by installing custom codec that support DTS. And you can do so within the MX Player itself. Of course, you can use video player that support DTS natively if you prefer.

To buy or not to buy Asus Transformer Prime TF201? That’s the question… The main point that I plan to buy Asus Transformer Prime ~ NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. I want to try out Tegra 3 games. And plan to use it as notebook replacement since it has keyboard dock. It has micro HDMI output which I can use it to display PowerPoint slides with projector (need to buy micro HDMI to VGA adapter though). Has USB ports and SD carder just like notebook. It should be able to run all the notebook tasks, right? Let’s find out…

Any Android Open Kang Project (AOKP) fans here? You can enjoy Official AOKP Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for Amazon Kindle Fire now. It is supported by AOKP team themselves. Current official build 37 was compiled with old kernel (no Hashcode 3.0 Kernel) and has Wi-Fi issue. So I tested latest test release build with Hashcode 3.0 Kernel. So you get all hardware acceleration support in this ROM. And feel free to customize AOKP settings in ROM Control to match your taste.
