You cannot play .mkv files on this app. I have a lot of videos under the .mkv file extension in the home network. But when i try to play them through here it will not play. It says power player cannot play this media file. It turns out i also cannot change the subtitles on this app nor audio file. I have many shows that are in english and japanese. Another issue is that any series i put on the home network always gets put in a random order not by name or number in this app. Not sure what to do.

Hi, PowerPlayer supports playing videos encoded in H.264 8-bit 4:2:0 format. We suggest you check if the MKV files are encoded with supported format. If the videos are encoded in supported format but the playback cannot proceed, pls contact our tech support team via Thank you :)

Update 2: bug resulting in music not playing in background is a issue with Android operating system. Apparently sometimes android forgets it's settings and will not be capable of resetting unless app is uninstalled. Afterwards selecting the correct settings works. This is the third time I've seen google break android in the last couple updates. These faults are getting more and more severe and none are getting addressed. Makes one want to use 3rd party OS. 5 stars!

Hi, PowerPlayer app supports playing music at background. After you started the music playback, tap Android's "Home" button but not [Back] button to leave the app screen, the app will keep the music playback active at background. Thank you :)
