Good app, but a waste of time to play mkv

I bought a full version, it's a good App, especially if you need to see you're files in you're network. To play divx files, it's awesome, But forget it, if you want to play mkv files, freezes all the time, so much lag.

MOSTLY BROKEN and abandoned.

August 2019 update claims to fix SMB issues, but the app just crashes whenever I want to pickup where I left off. Maybe an issue relating to its retention bookmark ability. Anyway, nothing’s better, just worse.

Update as of May 7th, 2019.
Still having atrocious smb connection problems. I have other apps which make these same connections instantaneously and without trouble, using the same protocols. There’s no justification for this failure to be prevalent for months and months on end with no resolution.

Avoid this app; my feeling is that the developer has moved on mostly, and there are plenty of competing apps that are better now.

Very sad.

I don’t know what fixes are being applied, but the updates should never create a new problem!

Serves me right for updating at all. Never update anything unless a problem exists to warrant it!
