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.

Is PC industry dying? Nope, I just upgraded my extreme gaming and video editing computer system. Previous PC system serves me well for the past 6 years. And it is still able to do basic office, blogging and surfing tasks. But slow for 3D gaming and of course video, photo editing as well. There are still tasks that cannot be done by tablet and smartphone. So here you are – my latest extreme gaming and video editing computer system. You will need a powerful multi core CPU for fast video editing. Enough memory so that it won’t slow down when hard drive page file kicks in. SSD to speed up the whole process as normal HDD is usually the bottleneck that slows the whole system down. Therefore, slow HDD but big capacity is used for data storage and backup only. And SSD is for Windows OS and storage for ongoing tasks. Fast GPU is required for extreme gaming of course. And finally you will need good cooling system to let you increase performance further by overclock them…

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 my favourites ~ Samsung SideSync has updated to version 3.0. And it does not limit to Samsung ATIV Windows PC anymore. Yes, all PC with Windows XP SP3 and above are supported. However, you need to have Samsung mobile devices with at least Android 4.4 KitKat in order to use SideSync 3.0. Err… My Galaxy S4 still not updated to Kitkat yet. Maybe this will be the reason to do so?
