    Hi, I'm a first time Android user and I've been trying to get to grips with it using the Sumvision Cyclone Nano 1GB media player I purchased. I did a factory reset on it and it's running the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from their website. The video player that comes per-installed with Android works fine, plays anything I throw at it but being very basic I want to use something like XBMC so I can see some info about the films. So far I have tried XBMC and Archos Video Player both which play back .MKV files at about 1 frame a second (audio fine). Do I need to install some additional codecs to make it work right ? Archos player suggested I download additional codec pack which I did, but did nothing to improve the playback. I've heard MX Player Pro is one of the best but does it give you media info (posters/info) like the others. Many thanks.

    Great, thanks. I did look at all the phone/tablet sections and didn't see that one.

    We hide it way at the bottom of the page in the Other Android Device.:D

    I hope the folks in there get you sorted.
