DLNA is a standard, so why I cannot use this app with some other set of servers?

Good, but there's a problem. When I switch to a different app, then hold down the home button to bring it back up, it stops playing the current song and I have to start over. Need a way to bring it to focus without resetting it.

New app but still needs work. Useless when accessing large playlists because app takes forever to d/l data. Playback is excellent but needs serious help in managing data. And no search?!

Limited Used this for years. It works but navigation and function is limited and archaic for an app. Cannot navigate library from search results! Must play or add any search results. Display of track, album, and composer info is truncated which is useless for classical and annoying for other genres. Can't edit or create play lists. Can't view tag info. With Android 4 it often will not auto-connect requiring me to manually reconnect to the server. Auto connects on Android 3.

Worked beautifully in older android systems Since it has not been updated in a long time... It is now useless!

Great app Works great. If it was visible in the notification bar & lock screen it would be perfect

David H Found this app works very well with my Chromecast. Normally Chromecast will only accept H264. AAC- MP4 HD video's. I normally used LocalCast until this app came along.. Now with the GIZMO connection, I can stream other video formats which were rejected by the Chromecast. Only negative is that it takes a little time before the video starts, but after that it works very well streaming the videos from my PC to my Television via a WiFi connection. Of course with Chromecast some may not realise you need at least a N600 Wireless Modem for the Chromecast to work.

Essential companion to J River Media Center I use this app a lot and it works very well and is quite reliable for audio at least (fails to play video on Xperia Z, Z1, Z2 & Z3). The search function lacks the ability to drill down through the results for an artist. A sleep function would be good. If it had the ability to sync playlists for off-line playback it would be excellent.
