  1. Update SMB protocol

    Is there any chance of updating the SMB implementation? My server logs indicate Solid Explorer is requesting NT LM 0.12, which was introduced in Windows XP. I'm lowering my security settings to allow a connection for now, but it would be lovely not to have to do that. :<

    • Chromecast

      I sent a bug report on this issue.

      I have a Nexus 5x with 7.1.2 running the latest release of SE. The issue is that when I attempt to cast from SE to my Chromecast the application fails and crashes... Every single time. Does anyone else have this issue?

      • Continuously play audio files?

        Apologies if this has been asked, or if i am just missing something, but is/can there be a way to play audio files continuously, without manually selecting the next track? As of right now, I have to pull my phone out of my pocket every time a song ends, and select the next one. This is my ONLY "problem". Love Solid Explorer!

        • Can't launch VLC for MP4 files recently

          When browsing video files on a network share, I used to be able to tap them and then choose VLC from the "open with" list and stream them over the network.

          Recently, however, something has changed. When I try to view MP4 files I don't get the option to view them in VLC any more. When I tested with different video file types, I found that WMV files launch in VLC without the list being offered, AVI files show the list including VLC and a couple other options, but MP4 and MKV files only offer "Photos" and a streaming option…

          • Connecting to samba server with custom port is sooooooo slow when trying outside of network.

            connecting to SMB server is too slow. My company only allow one tcp port for security, like 8022 port. My SMB server uses this custom port. When connect inside the network of company, it is really fast and comfortable. However when I try to connect at home, the connection successes but reallly slow.

            • Add quick FTP access

              Would be great if you add shortcut like in picture (pic 1)
              Long press on icon calls quick access to popular feature.
              If possible add ON/OFF switch without open Solid Explorer app. (pic 2)

              • Onedrive does not stream to vlc

                Streaming videos (tested with mp4 and mkv, may also include others) from onedrive to vlc causes the app to open and just have the loading pylon cycle indefinitely.

                Streaming mp4 from onedrive to the google photos app does work however mkv does not (probably due to google photos not supporting mkv?)

                Opening mp4 and mkv files stored locally with vlc from within solid explorer works fine.

                • Problem playing local video files via VLC player

                  Solid Explorer cannot play most video files via VLC player if they are stored locally on device storage. The same files play without error (through Solid Explorer, via VLC) when streamed over the network. They also play from local storage without issue directly from VLC player or through Solid Explorer using a selection of other player apps.

                    • DropBox - Network Connection Wizard - Encryption Password

                      In trying to complete a DropBox connection, the last step shows a screen stating, <<"This connection needs to be encrypted now. Please enter you master password.">>
                      Which "master password" is expected here? My DropBox master password isn't working.

                        Does anyone know how to access dollar shares from solid explorer? I'm trying to access a hidden dollar share on a windows host from my android. I know the dollar share is accessible because I can access it from a different windows machine

                              • Clear search history

                                There is currently no way to clear the search history within the app. I find it annoying to have search suggestions that are old and irrelevant but not being able to clear them.

                                This feature would be useful for both removing individual search terms and also clearing everything.

                                An option to turn off search history would be a nice addition too.

                                  • SMB connection with Linux PC

                                    I'm trying to establish an SMB connection with my PC, which runs Linux Mint 18.1. I make the folders I want shared, then create a new smb connection in Solid Explorer, I get the list of the folders that I shared, but when I try to open any of them I get a message "The network name cannot be found".
                                    Previously, with Windows OS, I had no issues. Please, give me some help.

                                    Thanks in advance.

                                    • Language

                                      I use android 7. My system language is Turkish. When I try to login my nas device with admin account, it changes to capital letters and it becomes "ADMİN" and I can not login because it doesn't recognise the user name. Same thing happens also with public folder, it tries to see under "PUBLİC" folder. App says "Folder could not be found"

                                      So as a coclussion app should be able to work in English independently from the system language.

                                      You can try the scenario and you will see what I mean.

                                      • Incorporate Nextcloud option

                                        Hi,

                                        Considering ownCloud has reached it's developing limits and the majority of users are migrating to Nextcloud platform (fork of ownlcloud), I kindly ask you to incorporate this cloud solution into the list of available connections in Solid Explorer.

                                        Thank you.

                                        Best regards !
