    What about setting service app and see if they play via e2iplayer I think you can play local files from there.

    I have a 4k box but no 4k TV so I can't test

    E2iplayer or serviceapp?

    E2iplayer
    plugins green to download plugins then extensions and choose e2iplayer reboot box then you can find e2iplayer in plugins.

    Serviceapp
    Plugins green to download plugins then systemplugins and download serviceapp

    Reboot box then menu, setup, system, serviceapp change player to serviceapp and green to save then box should reboot.

    Serviceapp is in different locations for images so if not system try usage and gui.

    OK just figured out what you mean. I installed that and played the file through there and it was still choppy. I'm thinking the receiver isn't powerful enough

    Ill
    Oh try this service app tomorrow but I'm not hopeful.
    Thanks


    OK trued the service app thing. Tried playing the file using gstplayer and exteplayer3. Didn't make a difference

    Have you got the 4K receiver video display settings on 4K mode?
    Try a 4K movie if you get a chance i also have a Mutant HD51 but no 4K TV would have tested but can't.
    Also if you are on OpenATV try OpenViX or the other way?

    Edit: Also try using a 3.0 USB/External drive to play it (copy it there) as it should process the files faster?

    Yes the receiver was set to 2160p res. I downloaded avengers infinity war in ultra HD. It plays it fine most of the time. Some scenes are choppy. I tried playing the file on the internal hardrive and portable hardrive. It does not make a difference

    Well i get picture so i do think the format is the problem. I am sure its h265 anyway. it works fine most of the time. But some scenes it struggles and starts to stutter until the scene is finished

    Connect the portable hard drive to the tv and see if it plays ok.
    It could be a problem with the actual video its self

    Well then that's the best way to use it.
    As for buying a different box you could face the same problems so save your money and just use your tv.

    Three final things i can suggest:

    Try a different HDMI
    Check your video settings are correct (try different options based on 2160p)
    Double check the codec of the 4k video is h.265 codec

    Downloaded a 10gb file from his dropbox to an extenal hdd then using Windowstool MediaInfo I was able to open the mkv. I'v read that some systems can struggle to unpack mkv files & that android devices can download/install VLC player, MX player that can handle this format so is this a software issue with Enigma2 systems not having a player with the codecs required to play this format?
