Works almost perfectly I have one media player and two screens linked to it. This is great for playing video while in the kitchen and away from the player (which is in the lounge). However, it does seem to have an issue with videos with an ' (apostrophe) in the name (probably some character escaping that needs to be implemented over http). Because of this it will not play them directly from the drive/folder view, you have to manually navigate to them using the top touchscreen 'arrow keys/swipe feature' on the app while watching the screen (which means I sometimes don't watch where my fingers are and end up pulling down the top Android notification bar by accident). Other than that it does what I need it to do :) Would be great if they implemented a feature that allowed you to stream a video stored on your Android device directly to the Xtreamer (should be doable by network sharing the folder on Android device and then sending the correct http commands to play it).
So much potential So little achieved. The devs need a thorough UX cunsulting (both on the app and the streamer UI). They just don't understand UX, what a pity. It's not intuitive, but after figuring out how to use it, it's actually just a replacement (and a poor one) to the plastic remote control that came with the streamer. The devs missed the potential to use the android touch screen to do what it does best - navigate, enter information, perform advanced operations. example - if I navigate in the HD, why not selecting and playing a file? why not drag and drop files to re-order files? delete files? There's so much more to comment on.. - bugs: the connection is lost very often. need to restart the app to connect again.
Works pretty well Works fine with my sidewinder mk1 just make sure you have the web server enabled or it won't work. The only thing I'm missing is the arrow buttons for time skipping and menu navigation but I see they're replicated using gestures in the screen menu. It works but a lot of users might miss that. I guess since the app hasn't been updated in over a year we likely won't see an update again but thanks anyway!
Sidewinder 3 Doesn't work on my Sidewinder 3. Simply can't connect to the IP. I assume it's due to the remote not working with the Prodigy (same firmware as sidewinder3) yet... Eagerly waiting for the update to re-test and re-evaluate.
Support for Prodigy needed Excellent app. I tried it with Prodigy and it worked once but now it's not connecting. Please add support! I'm on Prodigy 3.5 RC 10
Love this app! Now im only using the original remote to power on the xtreamer, only one problem, the keyboard don’t support hebrew but in the web remote it does
Version 1.0.5: Added keyboard in menu
