  1. Hello, I have Showbox installed on an Android-based media streamer (MXQ Pro). It runs fine but I can’t access the pause button once the video starts. I click anywhere on the screen or hit any button on my keyboard does nothing. Only a right-click on the mouse will cause the video to exit, or the escape key on the keyboard. Would you be able to help? Note I’ve tried both the VLC player and the Default Android player but to no avail.

    I’ve read that MX Player would help, and I’ve installed it; however it doesn’t show up as an option in Showbox.
