RE: Problems playing movie files from USB stick
I tried a NTFS file system as well. Same problem, the film hangs. This time after 1 hour and 15 minutes.
File size of the movie is 8GB. But that’s not a lot these days. Most of my films are over 50GB.
It's so frustrating... I want to keep the projector, but it's crap. A portable projector that is not able to play a movie offline from USB stick stably is not really usable.
Please help me.
Problems playing movie files from USB stick
Hi support team,
I bought a new Halo projector this week and invited some friends to watch a movie today outside (No WiFi - just a movie file on USB stick).
The USB stick is a high quality original Samsung 256GB stick (File system: exFAT)
The movie file is in the .mkv format. VLC is able to play it.
The firmware is up to date! (Kernel Version: 4.9.113 Build: PI.2.2.22)
Problem: After a while (between 40min to 1hour) the movie hungs up. It is only possible to resume the movie when removing the USB stick and plugging it in again.
Is this a known bug? How can I use USB playback properly?
I am already a fan of this projector, but if you cannot help me I will return it next week to manufacturer...
Thanks in advance,
