Time to toss out your WD TV Live Streaming. I have two boxes, WD TV Live Streaming for watching everything on my Synology NAS, and a Sony NSZ-GS7 GoogleTV for Netflix and other stuff. With this app, I can finally say goodbye to my WD TV Live Streaming (Gen 3/2013) because now it can play file over SMB like WD TV can, and it can play most files like WD TV can, and NSZ-GS7 have much faster response than WD TV, it also have a remote that is about 1 million times better. Please keep it up, I plan to keep on using this app with my future Google TV (or whatever that replaces it from Google.)

Good App, Best for SMB Streaming This app works great for streaming just about every media format you can throw at it - EXCEPT for anything with DTS. This is a limitation of GoogleTV, not Vimu. I've noticed that switching between video formats in the same viewing session will cause the player to slow down and eventually crash. A reboot will fix it, you can prevent it by occasionally exiting the application then restarting.
