Does not work with Android 11 or 12. Does not connect to USB drives using Android SAF (storage access framework). Version number indicates this has not been updated since 2018... Also, this is basically a ripoff of Nova Video Player which is free to begin with!

Used to be my go-to video player. Loved all the features. Changed my phone from a Samsung S8 with Android 9 to an A12 running 11 and now it crashes EVERY time I open it. As it's been years since the last update, I guess this is no longer supported and will be deleted soon.

Doesn't even start on Pie (9) or above. They completely abandoned this app... Including the paid version... Bummer. Really disappointed in Archos for letting us down. As of now there really isn't any other apps for local scraping, management, and playback, with Android TV support. I'll miss this app. It was definitely a hidden gem.
