Does the basics Works fine for opening files, playback controls and full screen toggle but most of the advanced features then require you to goto the PC and use the mouse (e.g. to close options screen) or crash the web service entirely which then requires a reboot of mpc-hd.
5 stars Works great for wanting to lay in bed and control your PC as you would a DVR.
Great app Dont have to walk up to my computer next to the tv anymore. Excellent app.
It would be 5vstars if they had NOT changed.... The column of where we chose the audio and subtitle stream choices. Now it takes twice as much time and effort to make those choices. There at the bottom of the menu now now. Ive tried and used every media player there is. And up until this recent menu change. There wasn't a better or more reliable media player available . Now the KMPlayer or its variation designed by a kmp developer that split off. Are a better choice. Even its unknown amount of options. The KMP Takes the lead
Worked instantly Update 10/1 newest version fixes crashing on load that started in sept. Purchasing. This is great, exactly what I wanted for controlling media player classic home cinema. Since the app didn't make it specifically clear, for this to work you need to go into your mpc hc options and enable the web interface, make sure to allow it through your firewall. Windows firewall immediately asked me for zero effort. After enabling the web interface the remote connected and I was able to start my video that was paused.
Dashed hopes After a year of looking for a way to play/control/navigate/stream my LAN videos, I thought I had found the answer in this little app. And what a great idea, just crank up MPC and provide a remote control input to it, then stream the output back to the tablet! Set up like a wizard. No issues. Cranked up the remote (android app client) and connected right away to my MPC on my media PC. Browsed to a NAS driver where I keep a lot of videos in IFO/VOB format (straight dump off the DVD disc). Controls all worked except for the center DOT (could not start a menu selection playing, I could only step through the menu selections). To start play, I had to use my PC mouse to click on PLAY in MPC. The Play/Pause/Stop in the app do not function at all to get a menu selection going. Seems the only way to chose a menu item is to sit in front of my media PC. Hmmmm... Once playing, all I got on the preview tab was a digi-cam-like strobe of stills. No sound. Apparently this app is not designed to actually play (in the fullest sense of that term) DVDs from a remote source on the android device. But then, neither do any other apps that claim to "play" DVDs. Sad. Still looking.
