easy to use

Easy menu, easy controls and it keeps track of where you were if you can't watch the whole video.

Internal Subtitles not supported

The app is perfect except that it can't support internal subtitles. External subtitles are supported perfectly.

Great app, built for touch, can play multiple format

Fast, touch friendly, with support for subs. However lost its ability to play to device in win10. Hope that's fixed soon!

So far best media player app with all features but dosen't recognize all subtitles format for example I have one folder with Romanian subtitles on Ondrive (I think is a.SRT format ) but when I load captions and select that folder the subtitles doesn't appear and I have to search on web for another subtitle

Ads and Conversion and Lack of Proper Networking

First, there are ads in this application. One is overplayed, and the rest are banners that float at the top of the screen. You need to pay to get these removed. No thanks, it's a video player, stop trying to squeeze out money for a simple app you probably got paid for 10 times over already. Assuming, but still... Second, their is no built in network navigation. You have to start searching by the computer name in a URL type bar before you get to the folder hierarchy. A little advanced for average users. Finally, almost every MKV file needs to be converted. The quality is okay afterwards, but it takes a while if you are looking for a quick HTPC setup. Whoever releases an app that plays MKV for free with no ads will jump to the top of the charts.

Best Video Player Yet

I LOVE how I can switch between videos and this app seems to remember my last position and start from there. I also love that you can swipe volume down on the right, and timeline to the left. Love the options as well to repeat or play once. Love the ability to play next video, previous or select videos within Modern UI. One small, small issue is sometimes I get overlapping options on the bottom. Not often though, and it's pretty easy to fix by clicking around. Fix this and the app is almost perfect.

Doesn't read any of my MKV files

Good luck programmers! I'll try the app again in a few months see if you've fixed the problems. Also, videos should keep on playing when tablet goes into standby (like music would). Otherwise it uses lots of battery if you want to listen to a music video. Or at least put it in the options I like the idea of a split screen like this, though, so keep it up!

No Stars if possible - Malware like

I don't care about software that provides no uninstaller and does not show up in the control panel or anywhere else. This makes me feel as though this is spyware or malware related. Microsoft should remove this from the store unless the author is willing to add this functionality. When I did a search for Mind Integrated - PressPlay the fourth link was the wiki about spyware. DONT DOWNLOAD OR INSTALL.

Bad playback on MKV

Choppy playback on MKV. Not acceptable.

Good, but can be improved easily.

This app is great, but with a couple of fixes, it could be stellar! 1. Please have rubberband seeking on the touch interface! It's really irritating that you cannot seek more than a few seconds! 2. Please allow the user to select which side of the screen to use for the touch-based seeking. 3. Why do you only pull in the three basic media libraries from the Homegroup? All custom libraries are ignored! 4. Needs better format support. 5. It would be good to show some type of indication when a video gets paused. I keep accidentally pausing videos by touching the screen.
