I am running my AV100 with latest Mele Chinese Firmware (looks odd but is switchable to English...) and  SPMC Media Center.
 
The Box is much snappier Now...and surprisingly it handles even 1080p very well.
 
Yeah..its Helix with all the Bells and Whistles too!

Try SPMC.

 

It is Helix based, runs 99% of everything you throw at it, it struggles only on some 1080p material.

 

Make sure you check "Hardware Acceleration" in Video Settings, but uncheck libstagefright (Mediacodec is the one you want).

 

If you are picky, you will notice a Quality Degradation if you play 720p Files on 1080p Box Output Setting, but nothing severe Imho.

 

On my Box i run the latest Mele Firmware, but it should work on the Stock Firmware as well.

Changing to Mele FW has another Huge Benefit....it feels much snappier!

 

But downloading from Baidu is a pain in the Ass and you have to change the language to English being blindfolded.

Hey likethatbox, 

 

Check out youtube for great tutorials for how to navigate Baidu as a non-Chinese speaker. When you really learn how to use it, Baidu becomes quite indispensable!

THX, but that was not the Point since i managed to get the File...Problem ist that Baidu is painfully slow, at least here in Europe.

Took me Hours because of reconnects during the Download , and since there is no Resume....

Spmc didn't work unfortunately. After installing it wouldn't even open the app!

Sad News....so we can consider it a Firmware Issue.
