Customer Reviews

Still not finished after all this time

The interface is by far the slickest and most visually appealing I've seen. However it ends there because it simply doesn't work.

Playback doesn't even work for media that the iPhone/iPad can handle natively. For video it just stays at 0:00 and never starts. For audio it gives and 'invalid url' error. My videos are all MP4 (h.264/AAC) and music is all MP3, so it not an odd format that needs transcoding. (Everything plays in Remote Potato, but it's an ugly interface)

After browsing the forums it's apparent that it was released half done. The focus was on 'play to' functionality like Chromecast or DLNA and the ability to play anything on your device was ignored.

This would be super slick if it worked, but sadly it seems like the push to finish it is lacking.

More features

I like the layout. But the navigation and features are very limited. When watching tv shows you have to go all the way back to pick the next episode.

When trying to stream to Chromecast you have to dig deep into each episode you want to play just so you can stream it.

I'll give it 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if this can get fixed.


Works ok but still need a few more features such as subtitles, sorting movies based on different criteria, filters by genre. Also would be good if we can edit the server list, right now I have a whole bunch of old servers that can't be removed
