    Can't get the DLNA to play on my XBOX one.
  • by Chris 8/14/2014
    Plays everything I've thrown at it. Works great, thank you for developing on my platform!

    Been using this almost daily since its release and I love it! It's not without its problems, though. First, there are issues with audio playback where the playlist will start over at the beginning after pausing. Also video playback doesn't work for high bit rate content such as bluray mkvs. The Android app has neither of these problems. My understanding is that the developer is working these issues, but I haven't seen any app updates in a long time. Generally speaking, the app is fantastic and integrates into my MB3 infrastructure at home perfectly. Totally worth the purchase and I'm confident these last issues will get ironed out.
