i don't like it in fact xD but it's a good player tho
Is there a better one for videos?
i use VLC Beta 16 works flawlessly on cm11 4.4.2 as MX is incompatible with atm and not only for video VLC replace Apollo or google music without any problems
Something that is very annoying: Someone links to a youtube video on facebook. You play it, it links to facebook in the web browser, then links you to m.youtube.com and then it opens the youtube app. It doesn't take very long, but it's still annoying as shit.
i play 10 bit H264 anime over wifi, positional subtitles and software decoded 5.1 surround sound.
MX player is the only one that can do it lag free.
MX player is winnar for decoding speed.
kinda yes, tho sometime it opened the app youtube for me instead of the browser and the m. site
Depends whether it is a direct link to Youtube or some Facebook link that ultimately points to Youtube.
Got the ZTE Warp on CM10!!! yey! Now to get it re-activated and will do that when I got the spare cash to buy an airtime card for it.
Paired my phone to the car but noticed music playback get a lot choppy, cant hear a thing most of the time as if the Bluetooth signal the phone emits is very weak.
don't know whats causing it as it was fine on Samsung's ROM, investigating further.....
EDIT: returned voltages\Freq to stock, signal improved a tiny bit but still chops, guess i'll be trying temasek's rom, because BT is one thing i use often and if that didn't work i might revert to the original once they release the 4.3
common with cm : set the minimal CPU frequencies on 300mhz+ (and no its not the Bluetooth signal but the soundchip who chope)
on Temasek's cm11 it's also like that. and the locking/unlocking sound distort the music for a short time (realy short) but it's not a big problem.
one thing not recommended to revert to the original or the next official Samsung 4.3 but wait on custom 4.3 with the driver of the Samsung 4.3, the only positive point in a official releas is : custom roms devs can use them as base and remove all the crap that the manufacturer put in.
but the choice is yours ofc
remember , touchwizz : heavy not needed non ergonomic unnatural. Nothings beat a good launcher like the stock android or nova (i use Nova and i uninstalled the stock one from the Temasek with a root uninstaller) its sad that customer get used to Touchwizz ... me i can't stand it
for me : i can't revert back to 4.3 and under, 4.4.2 suits all my needs and i couldn't find any bug or major fault on the build i try (ofc there is some little things but as long as i have a workaround to avoid them i don't care)
the 4.3 has been released (the "fixed" *cough cough* one) in Germany and England it seems
edit: using Boeffla's kernel with Battery saving preset active and CPU to 500-1000mhz no choppy sound for me and i dont even get the distortion when i lock the phone (i wonder if its the speed workaround or the fact that i use VLC instead of Apollo )
and i remember read somewhere in xda that said his bluetooth headset couldnt paired, and sometimes it works fine with this rom and not with other
hmmm.... probably not enough juice to sound or bluetooth chip?
Great now you made me want to flash to temasek even more,just to make sure its these right
yep those are the right threads q little waiting time and i post the Gdrive for the right kernel and gapps (dont mistake 4.4.2 offer better performances but doesn't change that much over 4.3 touch and feel but for me downgrading is not an option, if it doesn't concern nostalgic build in computer )
http://boeffla.df-kunde.de/sgs3/boeffla-kernel-cm/cm11.0_download/Test/ gdrive is obstinate ... it keep opening the zip instead of asking for a DL ... but not for the gapps --- so here you have the Cm11 beta 3 and 4)
also about the powering for bluetooth and soundchip i don't think so ... i have a lightUV settings and no chops
and thanks to you i see the kernel beta3 r2p3 was discontinued and the offcial Cm11 implemented Mali GPU drivers! weee new flash!!! thankies!
thanks, already downloading the rom+ boeffla beta4 good thing you reminded me about gapps
i just flashed the new kernel ... time for ANTUTU! as if i care about numbers .... but but BUT it is FUN!
derp... 19961 ohhh well still 2k~ above stock
check your screen off idle MHz, some kernels have a specific BT setting and you'll want at least 400MHz for it to work smooth.
luckily it was already answered 6 post above or ... idle screen is not the minimal cpu frequencies ?
not always. my s4 has a different kernel, but i can set idle, screen off, and bluetooth/music to seperate frequencies - so say, its 100Mhz if screen off, but 400 if music is playing or BT connected.
Boeffla doesn't have that
then dont set the max mhz with screen off too low
xD, got it installed and looks good so far, and i'll make sure min freq is at least 400MHz this time
Not that i care but for the heck of it ran a quick antutu test on dalvik and got 18721 and a second run after rebooting to ART 18809 buuut never mind that
still getting used to it but one thing i noticed missing in the quick setting menu is the power menu shortcut "the one that pops up when holding the power button"
i guess it was an added feature from crdroid's cm 10.2 rom you gave me though i can still live without it
EDIT: is it possible to remove the google search widget from home screen ?
which is the lower frequency in the control app i do 500-1000 on battery saving preset 1day 22hrs 38min on it atm and 30% left
yes but you have to install a alternative launcher like Nova (the one i use atm)
for antutu i wonder, i did 20820 on 4.4 with beta2 then 20340 on 4.4.1 beta3 and now 19961 on 4.4.2 beta4 (always on ART tho)
you can remove the google search by removing the apk file with a root explorer. iirc its velvet.apk for some roms, and google search widget by name if you use an app
well if he want to keep google search for other purpose: installing Nova launcher is safer, tho using a root uninstaller to remove the original launcher or freezing it with Ti backup to see if it does weird behavior before uninstalling it is also an alternative
CM10 screenies on my ZTE N860!
