It does mostly what I want it to do, but it loses sync regularly, and sometimes the player can freeze. I like the simplicity of functionality, but I wish there were a few more options, like queuing songs, or making a playlist. It's still better than the remote, especially for going through the setup menu.
Loses comms after half an hour or so if the phone is kept locked, so the blu ray player needs to be restarted. This is even with settings power optimisation exception for this app specifically. No advanced functions like playlist creation, etc. Use a third party DLNA app instead.
No Landscape support for anything - DUMB. The Interface is OLD - LAZY. Oppo loses itself on a Network all the time - major BUG. No Network Video Resume on DLNA - STUPID. Does not support M3U Playlists - RETARDED. Oh and updates are very few and far between with no real advancement - at all. Bottom line, the player is OK, the app is OK - really needs some serious updating of the firmware for Network issues, Massive interface overhaul is needed because it is so very outdated... I mean really, look at the interface - hello, 1985 is calling and they want their designer back!!! If you are thinking of this for your network music player, look elsewhere....
Nice app I prefer this app over the "remote control", but this can still be improved. Would be nice if you get some more feedback. For example to see if "pure" is on or off and other things you can see on the display on the device.
While it appears to have all the right features, this app simply doesn' thave the required stability to make prolonged listening sessions enjoyable, or even bearable. My whole house has Gigabit hardwired Ethernet, however after listening to app controlled music for more than half an hour on my BDP-105 (be it streaming from NAS, or TIDAL), the app becomes unusable, controls stop working, it doens't know what track is playing and needs to be reset. I have a Denon Heos and Cambridge Audio Stream Magic systems at home, and have also extensively used Sonos, and the Oppo MediaControl app doesn't even come close to these three in terms of stability and useability. It's very disappointing given how amazing the hardware is. I've tried to love my BDP-105 as an app controlled network music player, however I usually just end up frustrated with the clunkiness and put on a CD instead.
Ok Doesn't always show "This Device" in the source list if the player is powered on before opening the app. So open the app, power on the player, then refresh the player list in the app. Other than that it offers some great capabilities for playing content from your tablet.
