It sounds coherent :)

I can confirm that this Chromecast navigate fluidly Google TV and runs smoothly when playing the heaviest material I've got, which is Dolby Vision 90mbps 24fps FEL titles.
The AFR working with Chromecast?
Please don't be so parse... What does means AFR? Automatic Frame Rate?

If so, the answer is no. This Chromecast doesn't do automatic frame rate or resolution change. Neither in system, Plex, Emby or Kodi, it doesn't support the same API this apps use for this functionality.

Perhaps in a future update, the last one open the posibility to playback every Dolby Vision single track profiles, but it's not assured.

My system is always at 4K@60hz and I have to say that playing with the motion config of my Panasonic HZ1000 TV (IFC, Inteligent Frame Creation) the playback is perfectly smooth with no soap opera effect.
Thanks, playing all content on 60 Hz is very wrong way. The Ugoos is much better choice.

For this use discard new Chromecast, it only accepts onlyread FAT32 filesystem on USB storage, so no files with more than 4Gb are possible in it. Incredible this days. Hope Google include exFAT and/or NTFS in future firmware updates.

For now it's an excelent device por streaming content over Internet and local media servers like Plex or Emby.
How can it be if it doesn’t support frame rate matching or hd audio?
Well, the answer is explained in detail written before, in summary, different users have different priorities and needs. For my use, this device is the one that best meets my needs. Clearly, not your case.
Not Clearly, definitely.
I bought one pre release and sold it after 3 weeks, no Frame rate matching and HD Audio as mentioned, it downmixed all AAC files to stereo, so I relegated it to the guest bedroom, tried to put external storage in which it constantly ejected (tried various combinations of hubs and storage devices) tried to install Hyperspin on it and it didn’t work and thought ‘forget it’ useless mainstream targeted piece of shite.

Thing is I asked about the Ugoos, and ended with an essay about Google Chromecast with Google TV.

So I have the Chinoppo, 2 Shield 2019 Pro, 4K firestick, Zidoo Z9X, had the Google thing with the long name and sold it because it can’t do lossless audio, what do I buy next, is this Ugog a winner?
I have the Shield 2019 Pro, FireTV 4k Stick, Zidoo Z9X, Apple TV 4K, Minix U22-XJ, X96 Max+ with CoreELEC and the Ugoos AM6 Plus :D
For DV FEL, the Ugoos is the best choice.

Does anyone know if the Ugoos can do TV-LED DV?
Is DV playback stable: no freeze nor stuttering?
I'm assuming there is no NETFLIX ? what if you sideload it ? https://github.com/longseespace/netflix_patch
I think I'm going to order one, just waiting for more feedback.

I couldn’t find a forum for it either, but the Minix U22-XJ has the same SoC, so I’m assuming it’ll eventually have the same support (if it doesn’t already) as the Ugoos. They have a forum over at https://theminixforum.com/index.php?for ... 22-xj.130/.

@NICE77, can you btw check your Minix to see if it works as well as the Ugoos?

I think you can sideload Netflix but it will probably be limited to a lower res because of the lack of a certification like most Chinese Android boxes.

Yes, Player-LED (LLDV) and TV-LED too.
This device is not good for streaming (Netflix, HBO, etc.), only local playback.
The playback is stable, no stuttering, but I only use Plex with STDL ts files.
HD audio only with Kodi, but mkv DV playback is not yet stable.

The Minix's original firmware is very bad, but we have Ugoos port ;)

Has it been confirmed that the FEL is actually being used with the Ugoos? Picture comparisons somewhere?

Ah it looks the v0.3.7 is the latest firmware that was ported over, is this enough for FEL playback or do you need one of the newer ones? And have you tried it yourself? Only reason I’m asking is because the minix looks Iike it’s much easier to get here in the states :D

I think I saw the Ugoos available on Gearbest. I haven't ordered anything from there, but remember reading it was a decent way to get a Xiaomi phone imported.

Looks oos at the moment, but wherever you can get it from, just hard to beat being able to buy the minix straight from Amazon with prime shipping :D

well I guess it worth a try, the GitHub apk says that it enables widevine L1 which is the protection 4K stream use. 1080p is L3
