Best player on iOS!
Add also this options: movie information (quality, sound, etc.), locking the control while watching (you can not move the movie or control it), unlock it by pressing a small button on one side and enlarge the subtitle size option.
Najlepszy odtwarzacz na iOS’a!
Dodajcie również opcje: informacje o filmie (jakość, dźwięk itp.), zablokowanie sterowania podczas ogladania (nie można przesuwać filmu ani nim sterować), odblokować można by było przez naciśnięcie małego przycisku znajdującego się po którejś stronie i powiększanie rozmiaru napisów.

I love your app, I use it in a html script to jump to your app to stream files from my website. I need to have separate 1080p and 720p files to stream, can you implement choosing video streams from one file? Like choosing audio streams?
Best regards, you have amazing app. Keep up the good work!
