Please fix, can't view for 2 weeks!!! For 2 weeks now, all I get is about 10 minutes of broadcast, then I get an error message that the video isn't available and it starts again. I appreciate being able to view PBS but if you are going to have an app, it should work. There is no way to even send feedback through the app. This has happened on both my Kindle and my Moto Z after I signed in to your site with my password. This has happened to the 2nd Episode of Sherlock, season 4 and 1st Episode of Victoria, season 1. Please fix this!
A single glitch...not bad for free I missed the S4 premiere of sherlock so I dl'd this app. Yes. There is a progress bar that flashes from time to time. However it is a literal flash. I watch with captions and I had no problems keeping up at all. As far as navigation with the process bar flash, with my phone I had no issues at all. Its really not a big of a deal as other reviewers are making it. Considering PBS is a viewer sponsored channel and they aren't asking for money for the app, I'd say its pretty damn good!
Chromecast and video issues I have the same issues with chromecast as the others. Title bar flashes randomly and the timeline status is incorrect. Makes it near impossible to jump around in a show. Also many videos (Rick Steves) show an expiration date of 12/31/69 so selecting those results in a video expired message.
Needs a lot of work The app is difficult to navigate and not intuitive . The playback controls are some of the worst of I've seen in an app. Moving forward or back in play results in a time count beginning from that moment, not from the start of the show. When using this with a chromecast, a screen (possibly buffering?) would often flash on the television showing the time and duration. This would flash for a fraction of a second. Very annoying.
Chromecast issues Please fix the issues with Chromecasts. I also get the status bar flickering on the screen every couple of minutes, dropped connections all the sudden, and tracking timeline not accurately showing current point in video. Been very disappointed with my PBS Passport experience as a whole lately. A functional app would go a long way to fixing that.
Needs full Chromecast support Nice idea but why aren't you able to use Chromecast with passport videos? Had to dig through the FAQ to find they aren't supported. Until that gets fixed, the app will be poor at best.
