Review from Micah Madru
Good start, but useless to me no music capability. Awesome UI though.
I've reviewed this app before, but its time for an update. Love it... I have it installed on my devices and my fire sticks. They scan my network storage drive and its like a personal Netflix for my video content. I absolutely love it. I'd like to see a way to change the "sort by" title of a film so that movies in the same series show up in the right order. And for some reason the trailer links won't play on fire tv stick. Other than that, so far the app is perfect.
I recently upgraded my phone to a Samsung galaxy note 4 and now whenever I play a video the subtitles (sub/idx) are humongous even when it's set up to play them the smallest size possible. The video and audio quality is still very good. The only way to get them to play correctly is to convert videos to a higher resolution (1280x720 ) at least which devours my micro SD card. If this problem was to be addressed it would definitely get a higher rating. MX Player Pro plays them correctly and Archos use to.
So far so good. I've previously used a WD TV Live, Boxee Box (for many) years and then Kodi after that. I find that Kodi is somehow getting old. I've bought a new TV (Sony KD-50SD8005) and was absolutely impressed about how intuitive, "cute" and easy to use this app is. I just wanted to say THANK YOU. It worked with everything I've tried to play (however, I know that my TV's CPU is limited, so I don't expect a smooth playback with 4K content or something like that), but I've played 5.1 1080 mkv's without issues. The data is being shared via SMB from my Synology NAS. I only had identification issues with one series so far. Subtitles, playback and all the rest just work like a beauty. I can resume movies that I've started watching and it easily tells me what's new and what I've started watching already. It integrates very well with the TV's "home" feature. Let's see how it behaves once the library behaves, but for now I can't think of a better app.
Just purchased. Its fantastic given the fact i dont need plex anymore. BUT: 1- needs other type of skins(e.g. netflix type) on android tv 2- when i use mx player as player, it doesnt get subtitles downloaded in the main menu, although subtitles are downloaded to the very same folder 3- the leanback recomendations plays media through original player although i have changed it to mx player (on android tv) 4- in the app's main menu it does not recommend movies and tv show episodes based on history of whatched media
The latest update has rendered the app a giant paper weight on my desk ... nothing is working ... no videos play
After so many versions the sftp connection is still taking ages to load. Come on guys.
