Is there anyway to view a DVD on nexus player using the network using ES file explorer
Thanks for your love!
Thanks a lot!
I get movies from a variety of sources and often they are in different formats. I could not get my Note 10.1 to play video.ts files on any media app I could find. I finally found Wondershare and now I can watch, or stream, anything. The app immediately found my Plex server and connected with no action on my part. Excellent app, I am amazed it is free. Thank you very much Alejandro!
Hi! I had some difficulty getting Wondershare to find my video.ts folders. Once I got it to scan my external SD card then the movies were listed and played back just fine. Maybe the app isn't looking in the correct places for your video files.
Thank you! I have spent a better part of the day downloading and installing free apps to play my ripped DVDs. I have them stored on my NAS and none of the apps I downloaded worked. The last app I installed was Wondershare but that did not work when navigating directory to the file (through ES File Explorer) and choosing to play the file with Wondershare. I did (yet) another Google search and found this page. I followed the instructions and they work perfectly. I know this is a free app, but I sure wish I could donate to Wondershare!
Hi, Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate supports DVD ISO or DVD folder files. If you use a Mac computer, the Mac version doesn't support the protected DVD files. So, what computer do you use? And is your DVD file protected by DRM? A quick way is to send your DVD files to to our Support Team . The specific technicist will test it for you.
I spent an entire day trying to get WonderShare play a VOB, a DVD ISO file or a DVD folder. It doesn't work, it won't pick these formats out as media, there is no sign that it even knows what any of these formats are. Still waiting for a response from their support. week #4 is almost over....
Actually my Note 2 hardware wise should be plenty capable of playing discs directly with an external DVD drive, given the right software that is.
