Google pulled xl in favour of apps that have to be installed in flash memory. Only the x3d can do that.

So the home menu link to xl that no longer works and cannot be changed to a flash version has been removed.


I believe there is tip about streaming YouTube from android to the dmr.

Thanks for the respond.

Pity!
now my MED400X2 is worthless :(

is there any plans for med8er to install flash players at least?

No..browser plug ins are not possible.  Even some x3d users are being realistic and looking to a future model for  solutions that they accept are beyond that model. X2 users are even further behind.


Now Google have Chromecast you wonder if they are becoming a bit like apple. If you want to run a Google owned service they want you to run on Google hardware.


If you have an android tab you can use bubble upnp as a video player. So YouTube on android asks what do you want to play the video with...and you select bubble.  If the default renderer in bubbleupnp is the players dmr then you get the YouTube video on the TV.
