USB Media Browser allows you to view your photos and video from a USB drive via an OTG cable, without root! Overcome the players limited storage by adding your own. Imagine being able to view all your pictures and videos from a card reader, flash or hard drive connected to it. With an inexpensive OTG cable and the USB Media app, you now can.
1. Voice search for videos (by name) and photos (by date or month/year)
2. Automatic thumbnail generation for photos and videos
3. Easy to use intuitive interface.
1. A straight OTG cable (see screenshots for examples)
2. A USB flash drive, flash card reader or hard drive.
3. A game controller is NOT required. I'm currently investigating why that is showing on the Play Store.

I've tested with my video and photo library and it's working quite nicely. As languages and file name schemes do vary, it may not work as well with your collection. If you are having issues, please contact me via the E-mail Developer link and I'll see what I can do to tweak it.
