What is the better fast server?

GoogleVideo-links

I was told that Google links were back on there, but don’t expect to see them as often as you used to before. Some movies don’t have it and if you watch shows some seasons of that show won’t have it. But for the most part, it’s there. Some of these things will run a year or so before it dies, meanwhile, Google has stepped up there removing links game.

So what can be a better choice to play the sources? Someone suggested that LCDN Fast and CDN Fast are other sources you can try that work almost just as fast as Google links. I watched a few TV shows earlier today using the Openload link. It takes a little longer for the show to initially start, but once they did, they played fine. I have found that the internet speed and reliability will make a big difference in how well anything but Google links will play. Actually, I don’t find many 1080p links is that due to location or speed.

I saw some player servers posted by Terrarium TV, but not really get familiar with them. Which one do you think is better?
A list of fast servers (in no particular order):

What is the best Android 7.1 tv box (2018, Jan)

Where to buy and what is the best Android7.1 tv box, are you still remember the old version Android 6.0 Kingbox K3? The designers who created this product have excellent art skills and a unique understanding of electronic devices. In August last year there is someone keep asked Kingbox constantly about when K3 Android7.1 release, we declaimed if that do not reach the best models and operating systems, we would not release the new K3 easily.


Why in the name of Kingbox K3 & why it is the best?

Every number has its own unique meaning. Why we name Kingbox K3? Some people may know that “Three“, it’s rooted stem from the meaning of multiplicity. Creative power; growth. “Three” is a moving forward of energy, overcoming duality, expression, manifestation, and synthesis. Three is the first number to which the meaning “all” was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end.

the-meaning-of-number-leelbox-best-android-tv-box

We really appreciate the spirit of Leelbox products and thank those people who care Leelbox creativity idea. Yes, Kingbox is a sister brand of Leelbox, and Kingbox K3 can be the best model of Kingbox series, the name comes from its design inspiration,the angular appearance of it in many android tv boxes stand out. We can see it is a model with a multilateral water chestnut, square three-dimensional design, make it more beautiful. There are bumpy corners behind the box. Not only own the streaming media features, with elegant appearance allows your living room and bedroom more perfect.

Kingbox K3

Not only that, we have integrated the advantages of the Android 6.0 version of K3, abandoned the backward running shortboard, the box upgrade to android 7.1, to create a better user experience. In the past, the uniqueness of the number “Three” should be met. Just as it includes the beginning, the middle, and an end, starting with the concept and technology of Leelbox, then Kingbox came out in the middle and ended of the outdated skills and ideas, K3 Android 7.1 TV Box 2GB Ram 16GB Rom Amlogic S912 Octa-core, as the leader leading Android tv box to the endless.

There is an ancient wisdom that says; ‘Messages or events that come in three’s are worth noticing. ‘Whenever anything is mentioned three times it is a witness to us that these things are of utmost importance.

K3 came into being, not only by coincidence but also the result of engineers studying day and night. You can dispense with the troubling cable bills with the smart tv box. You can enjoy HD streaming, unlimited resources without the need for a fire stick, Google Cast and Miracast no longer needed, modern people using the Android tv box because it lets you see the world, broaden your horizons, no longer limited to one country, your language, customs, culture, and even politics, sports, etc. It is a children’s textbook, is your handheld, is the best viewing device for housewives.

Why MX Player?

Google-links-MX-player

Heard from one of our readers, according to her said, ” Can’t figure this out. Google video links are the only ones I can get to work. Open load and Streamango links will play a few seconds then go into never-ending buffering. I am running a Nvidia Shield box with an ethernet cord plugged into the box. Had the same problem with my firestick. Spectrum is my internet provider.”


These are something talking about MX player. The settings make a difference. First, the decoders are SW, HW and HW+. The SW decoder is intended for PC use. It uses the CPU only to play video. If it is a high definition file you need to play the SW decoder may not be efficient using the CPU only. There are chipsets installed by manufacturers on their devices that assist the decoding for video playing. The HW decoder uses these manufacturer chipsets to play video instead of the CPU. MW+ is using MXplayer own chipsets as opposed to the device specific. Not all devices support the HW+ decoder. Some hardware devices need to be configured properly to allow HW+ to work. If not crashes occur. These crashes are related to the device OS. You can check online forums to see if your device is supported. MX player also tries to use a devices audio decoder to play video. If a codec is not supported by the device the video may crash or play without audio. You would then try to change MX settings to not use the devices audio codes by selecting decoder settings to HW+ audio SW video. There are settings that can force the SW decoder codec.

Google-links-MX-player

All of this and still things can crash or not play due to the device codec or chipsets of the manufacturer’s device. You often have to look to see what file formats are supported by the device. And then know what file format a linked stream video is. All this is just MX Player. All other decoder systems will have similar issues. This is why if you are streaming and want optimal play you need to know what device you have and it’s capabilities. Then you need to understand the settings and what they do. If you have video crashing, no audio, no picture, buffering problems they are most likely due to your device and the link and whether the player is able to read the video and play it. Obviously, there is no one solution for everyone unless all are using the same versions of same devices with same settings, on same output.

Google-links-MX-player

But a 1080p file is more inclined to require a special codec to be read. Complex in only meaning that that extra code might not be supported in the chipset in the device or in the capability of the player to decode and play. That is why custom codecs get set up and could be the difference between why one device that has more manufactured chipsets or the player with the codec to interpret can play certain links better than a marketed device with lesser audio/video capabilities. If you have MX player and are having play issues try changing the decoder between SW, HW, and HW+. If there is no audio, try changing the settings to SW audio. Those are basic MX Player settings. It doesn’t just end with selecting the MX player. Extrapolating from this I would surmise that all other players are similar and probably why the Developer tried Exo and now Yes …to help provide options to some people having issues streaming links. But the problem is, as I said, that there can be no one solution for everyone bc of all the variables.

So what player do you using now?

YesPlayer VS MX player, which better?

Recently, Terrarium TV has announced that use YesPlayer with Terrarium TV to receive fewer video ADs from Terrarium TV. And they also suggest people don’t choose links labeled with “[SlowServer]”. They freeze a lot. However, we have heard that Yes player makes all their links freeze. Switched back to MX player and the same links are fine no buffering. Is YesPlayer really don’t meet users’ need and could not better than MX player?

Terrarium TV

Support voice to YesPlayer, actually, we could see that Terrarium TV worked until 4 am yesterday night and want to provide people more fast links and GoogleVideo links. But today, you guys keep saying that you dislike YesPlayer. But actually, you are not forced to use it. Also, you guys keep. Anyone that’s even remotely/briefly looked into streaming has heard the praises of Terrarium because it’s far superior to anything else. Thousands of people would gladly pay a monthly subscription to access terrarium.

But some people may not agree that YesPlayer has fewer ads. according to one friend said, if you exit the moxie or episode before it’s over. During the credits. Your screen will flip sideways & you guys see an ad for a second. It goes back to the list. I use Mx Player. I had a Starz ad for a new show tonight before an Episode. It was about 10 seconds. Even paid Hulu has ads on some shows. I mean I don’t mind it. And even updated and installed yes player on firestick, unfortunately, yes player only plays half of the sound channel (music but no voices), gone back to MX player and everything is fine.

Terrarium TV

There is also a neutral view, Druv Vb said he doesn’t mind adds, and installing another video player on an old android box.

How about you? What do you think of YesPlayer or MX player?

Here is A list of fast servers (in no particular order):

GoogleVideo
LLCDN-Fast
AmazonCDN
CDN-Fast
Open-load (depends)
Streamango (depends)
TheVideo
RapidVideo
FastPlay

Always choose links with the above labels. There should be no or less buffering. You should not choose links labeled with “[SlowServer]” if you are not going to download them and watch later.

Remember: You can use YesPlayer if you want to see less video ad. YesPlayer the future of the built-in ExoPlayer.
