What's New in Version 1.5
Fixed crashes with iOS 8.
Update:: they fixed the playback and while they speak of another issue I'm not sure I see it. My content is working both from home and remotely via the application now. :)
Luckily when I signed up today for a the Lifetime License with both PlayOn and PlayLater as well as the HD support I wasn't primarily looking at the support for a Mobile device because well it simply does NOT work. As others have said it gets as far as selecting the stream but if you attempt to play it the whole application crashes and is simply gone. Hope this gets fixed because even though my primary reason for the server is to play my local videos and several streaming services (including ESPN) on my several TVs is would be nice if this worked also...especially if the remote mobile option works.
Updated for iOS 8
Thank you for updating the app to work with iOS 8. Works perfectly again!!!!
Love the look and feel of the new version of the app. I don't watch a lot of videos on my phone, but the PlayOn app lets me browse PlayOn server and cast videos to my Roku, Chromecast or Xbox. I can also add videos to my PlayLater recording queue. Slick and easy!
It was perfect
All of a sudden the app plays the first 10 seconds of a video and restarts to the beginning. This has been going on since the new year. It doesn't matter if it is a stream or if you're playing something off of play later. Playon on pc is up to date with 75mps internet, advanced internals on PC and up to date app. Works great on Roku, just not on the iPhone. Please work up a patch. Thanks.
