Works fine on surface rt, surface 2, desktop etc.

Plays vob files I copied off my exercise DVD to my tablet. File finding is a bit basic to navigate, doesn't show file extensions.

The program will only look in one folder. Can`t tell it to look in other folders or even to check my library. If I want to play music, I have to play one at a time or use up my memory on the ssd.

NOTHING PLAYS UNLESS YOU PAY FOR THE FULL VERSION THEN IT STILL WOULD NOT PLAY. DOWN LOAD THE ULTRA AND IT STILL WANTS THE CODEC YOU ALREADY PAID FOR THE SECOND TIME YOU TRIED. When you do try to play the files you want it converted them to a PowerDvd format that nothing else will play. I hope I can scrub the garbage out of my system. Do not waste your time or your money

Will NOT play DVDs

Trying to play a DVD on a Windows 8.1 computer with a USB DVD drive does not work (Windows Problem). They say to install an app to play the DVD. A windows store search yields Cyberlink Power Media Player. Problem NOT solved. Power Media Player DOES NOT PLAY DVDs! Over all a miserable way to spend and hour and waste $15 with the wife and kids waiting for the show. Thanks for nothing Cyberlink and Microsoft. P.S. If there is a way to play a DVD with this app, please enlighten me.

Plays files, but won't browse for them

I can open a file from Windows Explorer, but there's no way to browse outside of the media library from the app.

Don't buy

Not an easy player to use. Won't let me watch a movie because the parental controls won't allow it but can find where to change the settings. Most difficult to use. My recommendation don't buy .
