One issue

The new adjustments made are a good improvement, but there's one problem for me or anyone who uses subtitles... They've become to large which makes it hard to read the subtitles and watch the show at the same time and also it's got a grey background field. That's a main downfall for me at least. I'd appreciate if the subtitles were as clear and suitable sized as before, much appreciated thank you! I hope you take this in to account

Video doesn't play due to Unknown error

I'm writing review to complain of the new update. Ever since I have updated the new update I have had the problem that whenever I play the video it buffers saying that there is an unknown error. I think there are some bugs which is affecting the video so can you please change the update soon. Also there are more problems with the new update which people have stated below. Thank you.

Upgrade... Really??

Don't install this version. Whosoever signed this of as an upgrade needs to be fired along those who proposed it! How does removing functionality improve user experience? The change board of approval it incompetent.
Full screen mode removed
Need to stop part way through watching a download? Well you can't pick where you left off.

This is ridiculous the issues needs resolving, like yesterday.
