Seems to be optimized for android. My Yundoo Y8 android TV box doesn't run Kodi very well at all - a lot of the streaming isn't smooth and the lip sync is way off. With SPMC none of those problems are there. I was getting ready to put my Yundoo away in a box until Kodi came up with fixes. I'm really glad I tried SPMC.
Hands down the best media player. Super fast and easily replaces Kodi 16 and 17.1. Developer has included Amlogic coding and other upgrades to Kodi. May very well become the official app while Kodi becomes the fork. Hint...for those having trouble installing add-ons, try using the icons on the bottom of the screen or Google it. Once to try SPMC, you won't return to Kodi.
Used Xbmc Plex Kodi all for long time but SPMC IS NOT JUST GOOD ITS GREAT. GREATEST TIME IN A LONG TIME. RUNS SMOOTH. VERY LIL ISSUES. ADD ONS RUN SMOOTHER IN HERE AS WELL. GREAT JOB GUYS. NO ONE APPRECIATES FREE ANYMORE.
The people that left reviews about there not being a file manager to install addons are morons!!! The process of adding addons is identical to Kodi. Switching skins will make it easier if you're having issues. In my opinion SPMC is much faster than Kodi. I've installed it on my tablet and my Fire TV box and it's a lot better than Kodi.
Really wanted to like it. But with no way to add add-ons (no file manager), I can't use it. Shame because Kodi sucks now. Maybe there's a way to do it, but the entire Internet shrugged its shoulders when I asked. UPDATE: figured it out. Had to manually download the repo outside of the app, then add it in via zip. Kind of a pain, but it works now.
There's a bug on android 7, all 3 options for audio out produces loud buzzing sounds. The main kodi application is doing the same thing. All other players dont have this problem. Very nice ui though for this fork.
