by Igor Sinsky,I spent days and days of trying to get 5.1 sound on my TCL TV. Nothing worked but this app. Thank you!

by Lewin Edwards,Works very well and intuitively for DLNA sharing. Wasn't able to get it to work at all with SMB, unfortunately (Windows 10 host), but the overall performance and features of the app are worth 5 stars anyway. Totally worth the $.

by Steve Rogers,All of sudden subtitles formats like PGS, VOBSUB, DVDsub stopped working. Its due to latest update. I think there is some bug in recent update.

by Ross Idis,Pretty good player Need to add Video Resume feature, its enabled by default but i want to disable it and cannot do so.

by Alex D,Can you please add option to change font to a one from a file on a device, like mx player can do?
