This app was the only app for Sony TV that works flawlessly over a streaming network with different file types. ViMu is user friendly and very fast. Thanks Author for the great app!!!!
Well, at least it loads on the Nexus Player. Can't get it to accept any streams though and I've tried lots that work on other apps like vChannel, VLC and Channel Pear. Might be good for streaming local files though. I never tried that as I have other software for that. Looks like this still needs some work...
Smart Developer Great app to buy for Sony NSZ-GT1 with a network hard drive. I can actually play all my formats with this app, when I had a connection issue 2yrs back I actually got help from the developer and solved the problem. Works with 1st gen Ipad streaming videos from most non subcribed websites though on the same sites it doesn't work with my android phone. Hopefully the developer fixes that issue, other then that this app is the best for older Google tv devices. A must purchase.
Great App But Some Device Dependencies Affect Playability I happen to own a bunch of Google-TV devices including the Sony Blu-Ray, NSZ-GS7, ASUS Cube, and Visio Co Star. There are differences in playback depending on device. For example, MKV video plays fine on the Sony or ASUS Cube but there is no audio on the Visio Co Star. As well, high bit-rate video segments (like 1080p action sequences) can have decoding issues on the weaker processor models. So, for example, I will have an issue with the Google-TV Gen 1 Sony Blu Ray but not the Google-TV Gen 2 Sony NSZ-GS7. These may be more device related dependencies than software related.
Good App, Best for SMB Streaming This app works great for streaming just about every media format you can throw at it - EXCEPT for anything with DTS. This is a limitation of GoogleTV, not Vimu. I've noticed that switching between video formats in the same viewing session will cause the player to slow down and eventually crash. A reboot will fix it, you can prevent it by occasionally exiting the application then restarting.
This app deserves every star it gets.. It's my favorite app on the Sony Internet player. I had to do a factory reset(NEVER do that) because you will loose EVERYTHING, and the old links on the old apps don't work anymore, and nothing with google will work. I have found work-arounds for all that I lost except this app, and google would not let me download it. The author kindly helped me fix this problem, and I now have this app running again. Thank you Alexander. If your still using the google TV system, This is probably the only video player you will ever be satisfied with. BUY it, it's inexpensive and worth every penny
