    bought this app because it said it will play many formats that i was having an issue with but it was a waste of money because almost everything is unsupported. i can play more on the built in media player.

    This player is excellent. I mainly use this app in my google chrome box to stream my movies that are stored in a network drive shared through samba. It supports most of the commonly used video formats along with subtitles. I will be the happiest if this player could play DVD files and wma/wmv format video files.

    I happen to own a bunch of Google-TV devices including the Sony Blu-Ray, NSZ-GS7, ASUS Cube, and Visio Co Star. There are differences in playback depending on device. For example, MKV video plays fine on the Sony or ASUS Cube but there is no audio on the Visio Co Star. As well, high bit-rate video segments (like 1080p action sequences) can have decoding issues on the weaker processor models.

    I've paid for this app but I'm not able to use it. About 90% of movies will NOT play because the audio is not decoded - i.e. this app cannot decode audio formats.
