Have you got ASUS new tablet Transformer Pad TF300? If so, do you meet the similar trouble from a TF300 user:
I used my TF101 with the MX video player, which worked flawlessly except when playing HD video files, and that's why I upgraded to a Tegra 3. On the TF300 though, I have installed it and it will randomly stop while playing videos; when I restart it will stop again within a few minutes of playback. I have tried other players but they have their own issues (Diceplayer won't play some videos for some reason; BSPlayer seems to work so far but I don't like the interface - and neither seem easily confirgurable to watch movies in S/W decoder plus subtitles when outputting to the TV). Any solutions?
