    Personally, I never saw this app working in any previous firmware releases. It works fine on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2012 release, with Android 4.1)

    1.) Name of the app.: Globo Play
    2.) Region of the app.: International / Brazil
    3.) Link to Play Store: (available in play store for free -- play store id=com.globo.globotv)
    4.) Problem description: the app installs and works but doesn't play the videos. instead it shows the loading icon for some seconds and then shows a message saying "video format is not supported in this device". i have friends that can run it fine from their android phones.
    5.) Login/password required for us to check?: No but some videos require user + password to watch. if you selected one of those, go back and select another one. QUICK TIP: major part of the short videos don't require subscription.

    my device is a MINIX X8-H

    The new version of vChannel 1.3 does not work on Android boxes, but works on Apple TV, certain Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, this is a big mystery on what is causing this.

    https://www.google.ca/#q=vChannel
    Add this channel: http://rss.my03.com/channels

    If Minix can find out why and make it work on Minix boxes, then you will have a lot customers.

    The name is: Meteo Yowindow
    the region is Italy
    I am not able to post the link in play store. But you can find it with this name: "Yowindow Meteo".
    The application is able to function. It also allows you to set an home dynamic screen, but when I set it as an home screen, after a while the screen is blocked and the home screen is not more dynamic

    any updates regarding the Globo Play app not being able to play the videos?
    it seems like the issue is caused by MINIX 8-H boxes not including flash/shockwave codecs in their firmwares. the videos play fine in Google's ADT-1 boxes and cellphones.
    thanks.
