Perfect! But only portrait... The only player/app that will play whatever, and does that properly! Search of the media is normal, sorted by folders, and not by stupid type of media or by genre or similar like on many other android apps for other DLNA players. (Player finding is solely up to router settings. I had to find that my self...) But nonetheless, everything works as it should. "As advertised"! When app starts acting strange, just exit it and start it again! Everything will work! Horizontal orientation missing... waiting for it.
Why is location needed? Why does the new version need to know my location? It would be nice if you would explain the reasons for it as well as the other permissions that are required. Don't think that is to much to ask for to go along with a top notch player and price paid to get it. Until that infomation is disclosed, I won't be updating. On a different note, the ability to cue up songs and create playlists would be very welcome.
Can't find my Oppo Player There seems to be a bug. When I started the app it said no players found. My Oppo was off so I turned it on and waited to get to the home screen. Then in the app I hit rescan. Still no players found. Oppo is connected by WiFi. Had to go into the Oppo player's network settings and get the IP address for the player and manually enter it into the app. My router is a Google OnHub TP-Link router. My phone is a Nexus 6P. Not a good experience at all.
No updates for ages....! Not bad... No Landscape support for Tablets, this is a mistake. The interface of the App, not to mention the main interface, are all a little old school. The Devs should look at the Bubble UPNP app to get an idea on how it is done. Equally, the TV interface of WDTV Live is well advanced too, they should look at that for the main device user software and learn a few things... Overall though, it does seem to work OK. FYI, it seems Gapless support does not work for Server music Flacs, there is no Resume Playback feature on video media files from a Server either (?!?). Lastly, quite often, i can't seem to find the device on my network, no idea why, i have no issues with my Amp or other software, so who knows... Bottom line, the Player is very good, the User Software (Main & App) could do with some major graphical work to bring it in to line with other similar apps & interfaces....
Works well for 105d I mainly use the app so I don't need the tv. I play a lot of HD audio via USB so the media control is straight forward for this. Only had occasional issues with the system locking up on playback or with Netflix but not the app itself.
Pitiful Payed over a grand for a cd player and you cant make a simple app work? Wont connect to player on same network. After multiple re boots it connect....and then buffers forever. Awful....spent half an hour to hear one lousy song...now singing the blues
