How to Play Blu-ray with HiMedia Q5 Smoothly?

As far as we know, HiMedia Q5 is the only Android box boasting 7.1 HD audio support from (sorta) out of the box and also the promised ability to play 2D/3D Blu-ray ISO makes it stand out. But actually, not all Blu-ray movies can be played smoothly on HiMedia Q5.

Although the new HiMedia Q5 has claims that it has also recently improved the handling of content encoded at 23.976 frames per second (most movies and Blu-rays and usually labelled as 24p), but there are still many users that reported it sometimes plays Blu-rays with stutter and the odd audio dropout with 23.976 files. 

In this way, we seem to need to manually adjust the settings if we plan to play Blu-ray on HiMedia Q5 at its best. You can use Pavtube BDMagic (Review) to get the work done. 

It can convert any commercial and region-locked Blu-ray, ISO image files to HiMedia Q5 more compatible video,like MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, etc. From the specification of HiMedia Q5, its decoding scheme of video performance is H.265 support 4K@30FPS, H.264 4K@30fps, MPEG1/2/4, Max 4K@30FPS/s. VC-1,WMV, Real 7/8/9, Max 4K@30FPS/s. so you should adjust your video frame rate according to your video format for more smooth playback. And Pavtbue BDMaigc can allow you reset video parameters while ripping Blu-ray to HiMedia Q5.

For Mac users, the equivalent Mac version is Pavtube BDMgic for Mac which has updated to support Mac OS X El Capian system.
