Good content, but lacking in functionality. For example, it doesn't keep your place if you stop in the middle of a show, then log off. You have to find your place again when you come back. Also, no fast forward or rewind settings, just the play bar. And, if you watch a series like Downton Abbey, you can't sort by season. Only option is to scroll through all episodes to find your spot.
No setting to configure resolution so video constantly buffers on public or mobile networks; if I was watching PBS at home I'd have a reliable, high speed internet connection to use, but why use a mobile app at home when I can just watch PBS on TV? I'd like to watch PBS Videos while killing time while waiting in the doctor's office or waiting in line at the DMV, and having a way to lower the resolution while using a slow public or mobile network would mean I'd use the app more often. Also, app does not remember where I left off watching a video. So easy to make it a great app, but PBS hasn't put in much effort.
It seems that the casting problem has been fixed! Hallelujah! It would be very nice if the player was easier to control. If I want to go back and watch an episode I have already watched I cannot via Chromecast. The player controls are not very user friendly.
I was happy to discover this app and that I have passport access to many great shows. The problem is I like to Chromecast video to my TV and this app is constantly changing video quality for no apparent reason, which is associated with constant jumps and skips in the video playback. This doesn't happen with any other app I use. Mostly the video repeats the last few seconds, but sometimes it jumps forward. Since it's also not easy to rewind or fast forward with this app, it makes it hard to watch!
While Chromecasting, the video stutters, jumps forward, or back pedals every time the streaming video quality adjusts. Doesn't seem to happen if you just watch it on your phone
This app freezes video every time no matter what during the commercial ad that is shown. It never plays the video content.
