How to change default player in DS Video on IOS ?

Unread post by DSVIDEOIOS » Tue Dec 05, 2017 12:07 pm

How to change default player in DS Video on IOS? I noticed I can change the video player if the codec is not supported, but is it possible to configure it to use other players as the default player? or maybe I can disable transcode so I can get the option to switch player everytime I open a video? I just can't find settings in the app for any of this. It would be great if we can get DS Video to work with other video players like infuse, which supports almost all codecs and has better accessibility for online subtitles.

Within Android, the default player setting (once stored using the Always versus Just Once setting) is saved under the Defaults for that player itself (not DS Video.)

Settings-> Apps -> Video Player (for example) -> Clear all defaults (or just reset the one for Open Links, since DS Video shares a streaming URL to the player chosen.)

For iOS I had to delete my saved App (was using VLC for iOS for example) then DS Video app resumed hunting for compatible players again (and I could reinstall VLC afterwards to include it as a choice.)
