    Despite changing settings, Rockplayer Lite does not see /ext_card on Android’s 4.1.2 file system. Skip.

    both vlc and rockplayer lite are useless, the picture is shown with graphic artifacts and it also lags. A player called arcMedia Redux is what you need, it’s UI is crap but it does the job perfectly.
