Do you guys have any recommendations for a good stylus?

After reading the reviews, I'm liking these two so far:

Seems obvious to me Google cut corners when they assigned ASUS to make the device.

the OG transformer had a huge bunch of issues when it launched as well. It was hugely popular when it launched and eventually everything got fixed. It seems to me more of an Asus problem.....which isn't really google's fault as they just contract Asus to build the product.

Asus eventually ironed everything out and look at the relatively smoother launches of their 2nd generation Transformer tabs~
Its just a matter of time methinks thumb.gif

As of now we use this: Skifta. Skifta App.

You install the desktop application, launch it, and it sits in your notifications area. Right click it and "Start Skifta Service." Right click it again and hit "Preferences" to choose the media output libraries. Then you just leave it running. Open the Android app and set the Media Source (your pc), the Media Player (your N7) and everytime you open it you just have to hit Play Media and it'll open right up. Pictures: 100% perfect. Music: 100% perfect. Our movies...we're having issues playing .mkv files--crazy stuttering. Most of our rips are .mp4 so we are just using those til we get this .mkv issue sorted. I'm almost positive it has something to do with our connection/router, rather than MX Player Pro or the N7.

For being totally free (and ad free) Skifta does all we could hope for.

What player are you using? We have MX Player Pro installed but you can try another like MoboPlayer to see if that fixes the issue.

Our problem is stuttering when the video is streamed from the pc to the N7.
Here's the Skifta Forums. The people are pretty active there.

Here's a thread with kind of a similar situation and the answer was to use a different player.

I'm going to try this (MoboPlayer) in a while and see if it solves our .mkv problem. I'm trying to solve this here before posting on the Skifta Forums.

Try MoboPlayer and see if it helps. Here's a quote from the MoboPlayer Pro comments:
Quote:
Man this player plays files that are choppy that other players won't play or fix. I had installed like 8 other players cause one did what another couldn't now they are all gone this is the best player that have been able to find yet. Keep up the good work devs.

I'll try the free version first and see how that works out. Give it a shot and see if it helps you with your situation.

I installed it just now. It wont play some of the mkv file that I have and the one it plays, they dont have sound.

So, I'm trying to get to the bottom of this and I'm beginning to think it has to do with the MX Player Pro mostly--but not fully, from what I'm seeing.

*Note: MoboPlayer seems to be dead as far as the N7 goes. Install error for the codec and can't find the NEON .apk anywhere to try a side load.*

1) Test .mkv in the Skifta folder actually played butter smooth but, had no sound this time...as opposed to one of our .mkv movies playing with sound but very very choppy; Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

2) The .mp4 movie Drive gives the "Can't Play This Video" error via Skifta but, plays perfectly when made local: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Probably just gonna root and get a USB-OTG media thing going to try and see what all works and doesn't without having to test movies 1-at-a-time while adding them to the Skifta Library on the pc.

I'll be posting on the Skifta forums and to the MX Player Pro devs both about this and if anything solid comes about I'll be sure and share it here with you guys.

Edit: LmG : Hang in there. The demand for the N7 has been thru the roof and we didn't here anything until the last day the July 11th and before pre-orders had to ship by end of day. thumb.gif Worth the wait, I'll tell you that. Few kinks but JB is just still so new....
