Amazing, plays MKV's :-). Almost perfect, but....

DTS sounds really low in 100% volume. In Desktop media player it sounds great and louder. In the video collection, it would be nice if you could pick up the Folder.jpg, and show it as the Movie representation. Thank you for the subtitles fix 😉 Please fix low volume issue...

Plays MKV's like a champ.

Great interface, plays MKV's without issue. Two features would make this a 5 star app. First is remember the last location I was in. The other is resume playback for videos I've already started.

Best Windows 8 Touch Player

Arguably the best Windows 8 touch-based player out there. Plays MKV quite well. I have been looking for one for awhile and tried a few others, but this one works the best I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great Windows 8 Touch Player. Update: Many months later, I'm still sticking to my original statement. The app is a bit buggy but after trying many alternatives for Win 8 Touch, it's still by far my favorite. The UI is simplistic out of all of them and it gives me the best east of use. I shall update the score and review accordingly if I find any problems, but for now,, this is a great app.

Terrible app to buy; do not waste time...

I've been holding out for a long time for a solid MKV player to come to the windows app store (preferably VLC, but they are taking their sweet time).I used this app as a trial to watch one MKV file and it worked great. Then the trial ended. I decided to just pay the $3.50. TERRIBLE IDEA. It wont play my MKV files correctly. i have no sound. I will be looking to request and force a refund to occur because it will otherwise be a waste of 18 gallons of water. However, if the developer actually decides to fix this problem that i and many other users have faced, then i will drop my fight for a refund, thank the creator(s), and update my review.

Great App With Some Flaws

This app plays all files (including MKV) wonderfully and I use it everyday. What I find annoying is it's inability to resize or split with other windows, which is a major feature of Windows 8 and is very much needed. This is especially true since most people using this app will want to browse while watching something (likely) and will find that the video they're watching will only resize to a tiny portion of the snapped view. Barring that, great app. Worth the price and I'm sure it will only get better.

Incredible since the latest update

When I first bought this app, .mkv support was spotty, buggy, and slow. Not so any more! I'm playing .mkv on my ARM Surface using mobile.HD and it works PERFECTLY for ALL my videos. Full speed, no lag, no audio lag, no glitches, and FULL subtitle support including the custom fonts/special effects/in-frame edits that some groups produce. Tested with some of the latest HD releases from premier subbing groups. It works as well as MPC on my desktop. This is THE best video player app for Surface, hands down.

Cyrilic support

Very good and useful app.The only think to improve is the lack of cyrilic support on subtitles.

Starts most files quickly. Problems start if you have to pause the movie file. It then gets out of sync with the audio track. The only way to fix that is by manually moving the movie backwards to reset the track. It has limited audio capabilities and will drop the audio track all together. Needs lots of improvements.

Looks Good

Played many of my files well. Subtitles didn't seem to work though. I would select an subtitle, but see nothing. I'd also like to see support for switching audio tracks (edit: found audio track switching). Planning to buy. Stretch wish is support for hi10p video files (I still wish that format didn't exist).
