Ratings and Reviews
Support Unavailable - Cannot Control TV Playback
MKPlayer was purchased to allow us to stream files to an LG TV. Being able to test the app was a nice feature before comitting to purchase. The app was purchased once we coudl sucessfully steam to the TV.
It appears this is using the Miracast feature, similat to AirPlay, to acomplish this.
Once we started streaming the move we learned 2 flaws.
1. I am unable to move backward or forward in the file being played. This does not work within the app on the computer nor does it work using the remote or on-screen controls on the TV. Inability to fast forward or rewind is a huge omission and it should be noted by the company before they allow th app to be purchased.
2. The second problem is that you cannot contac the comapny for support. Using the Support, Help or Report a Problem choices in the app takes you to the same FAW page on their site. The FAQ directs you to use the in-app options for support if the FAQ cannot answer your question. This is cruel joke to play on a inflexbile dude who just need to get a yoga video cued to the right spot so his girlfiend can laugh at him.
The app business model of selling half baked programs, preventing access to actual support and hiding it all behind the impersonal app store is a complete crock. We all desereve better.

Dear Semper Pickle!
Thanks for mentioning that you could successfully stream videos to your LG TV. We're constantly working on improving the app based on feedback and suggestions.
1. The app uses AirPlay and UPNP protocol to stream videos to the built in player of your TV. Jump back and forward is implemented by the app and it works for several video formats and Smart TVs. If the player of the TV does not allow the seeking for our player, there is nothing we can do. Besides we'll double-check our implementation.
2. We've decided to recommend "Report Problem" menu item within our app for contacting us, because it can send us advanced information about the current media file. It helps our support work a lot. Feel free to use the menu, so we can have further discussion.
Streaming support and NAS browsing
The app is not able to browse for files stored on a NAS drive. You can see the files but the Open button is dithered. Also will not stream to Apple TV. Support is slow to respond and their reply seemed very non-committal around fixes for these issues.
The player, itself works fine. Much the same as other players with simple controls.
The registration nag is very annoying, particularly since once you’ve registered, they are slow to respond to support requests.

Dear landcruisers! Thanks for mentioning that the player itself works fine and easy. We’ve looked at NAS support issue. MKPlayer uses the Open panel provided by the OS and it seems to work fine in our environment. We are now in the state to focus on smaller fixes as well, but because we could not reproduce this locally the best we can do is to keep an eye on it in the future.
Thx for a FREE MKV Player !
Clean, Solid, UI friendly, and FREE ! Thx for making my media experience drag & drop, or open. A 2 second action. I had to convert MKV to something QT7 Pro would play, like MPEG. But now, Open, movie. I look at the time I have saved for conversions, and say thank you. Time is something you never get back.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
