Dear all,

I am a new user to android and just bought my xperia tablet s yesterday.

I was able to access the video files on my media server (a hard disk connected to my wifi router) with the built in video apps,
but when I try to play the files it said format not supported.

I tried to install Vplayer but i couldnt access files on media server with it.

is there any codec I could install so that I could use the built in apps toplay rmvb on media server?
or is there any apps that could allow me to access + play rmvb on media server?

Thanks !

That's strange that VPlayer isn't working. That would have been my top choice. Alternatively, you can try BSPlayer. Here's a link to the free version.

Keep in mind this version is ad-supported, though if you find out that it works, you can always purchase the premium version.

Thanks for your advice :) My problem solved as I installed a DLNA plugin for Vplayer.

I also tried Moboplayer which I think is better than Vplayer in terms of output quality :)
