Bug detected

Hi, there is a bug in this version, when listening to a music folder in my nas server and the playlist is finish each time i want to go back to root folder to choose another folder or album the app cant resolve folder list and it keeps spining... each time you need to close completely the app and reopen again ...and so on...tried both on my iphone xs max and ipad pro. Plz fix

Works well, reasonably priced

I purchased this for Apple TV because I was having issues with VLC app connecting to network shares (on Apple TV but not iPhone). Well worth the $5. This app also supports flv files.
The app indeed plays the next item in the folder if you enable the feature in Settings.
One thing I don't like is that you have to enable Windows File Sharing if using a Mac.
The one feature it is lacking is a "next" button (next item/video), which would be convenient to have along with the existing "skip ahead 30 seconds" button. The skip 30 seconds does indeed work very well, but tedious is watching longer video.

Does what it says on the tin

Just got the app to access my DLNA server. It found the server straight off and connected easily. Went to my audio folders and was excited to find (unlike with several other apps), a) it automatically created a playlist of the folder from tapping one song in the folder, and b) I could adjust how the folder was sorted, including the most important, NO SORT. Why do so many apps ruin a perfectly good playlist by forcibly resorting it alphabetically? My one complaint so far is that my audio files have gorgeous high res album art, but 8player shows crappy pixelated images that would look at home on an 8-bit gaming console. What gives?

Edit: the app has recently been unable to find my Dona servers when it used to have no problem.
