    What happened to new videos being automatically added to the video library or as I call it tue video rolodex?

    I said it couldn't play AC3 audio. I was wrong - it can, if you add the codec pack AND RUN IT to install it. Without that crucial step it doesn't work, that needs better documentation/instructions.

    It does what it does well. Missing a lock screen function so that playback doesnt get stopped by mistake. And resume does not always work well (sound but no video) so still has a lot of room to improve

    Best video player, until, latest update, now can't pause or seek a network video. Luckily can use external player, so that's a "workaround". Hope next update fixes this bug.
