Missing internal storage button. I intended to watch some of my local videos on my Sony NSZ-GS7,but I noticed something. Where...in the hell...is the internal storage button? I looked all throughout the app and find nothing. The description clearly says you can navigate through internal storage to play local videos. Could you please make a 1.02 update that fixes the missing internal button so I can watch my videos.

No 3D support. Totally useless on new Google TV's with 3D.

The app gives Google TV some value Honestly, before I discover this app, the Sony NSZ-GS7 I have is nothing but a piece of useless junk. Vimu has given it a reason of existence. Sony should be grateful. However, still a few things to be improved: 1) SMB speed is very poor, impossible to watch a 1080P movie stored on my media server. maybe it's just my media server but my other windows computers can play those movies without a problem. The full version supports NFS, which maybe a solution. 2) No DTS support is a shame. Many of the movies on my media server has DTS audio track, and it's very annoying realizing I have to switch to use another equipment for playing. 3. Never got lucky on activating .srt subtitle. Is it possible to add the feature of downloading subtitles from the Net like BSPlayer or XBMC? Overall, very potential app. However, before all the above issues are solved, I would stick to my old Asus O!play.

The player I've been looking for I've been looking at every video player I could try for the past several weeks in search of one player with all the features I want. I think I've finally found it. 1) The video is not distorted(seems simple, but several players can't get it right) 2) Indexes network content for global search 3) Supports video with multiple audio streams 4) Supports subtitles Also, the bookmark feature is a great way to get to exactly where you want to be in the fewest menus, and make it so that only the media that you wanted indexed is indexed. The interface is very nice and can be customized. There are other little things like while you are playing a movie, the pop-up menu tells you what time it is, and what time it will be when the movie gets over. Just handy! I'm not sure what is "lite" about this version. There is no advertising and all features seem complete. Maybe there is a time limit? I'll keep putting it through its paces for at least a few more days and unless I find some hidden problem, will buy the regular version.
