latest version 2.00.03 has crap video and out of sync sound The latest version (2.0) has killed playback on my device, it will still stream from the server but all files kept on my Sony Z3 no longer playback. I have updated VLC Streamer Helper to the latest version and recreated several files, they still will not playback once copied to my Sony Z3........ ......version 2.03 has fixed the playback issue..thanks for the quick fix...:-) ....After using 2.00.03 for a couple of days, even though it hasn't crashed like the earlier version use to do on a regular basis, the quality of the video is now cloudy and voices are out of sync. The earlier version had crisp video and no syncing problems...this new version needs a lot of work. I would roll back to the old pre revamped program if I could that is how bad it is. I would rather have the odd crash than have to put up with this versions poor quality...:( ......thanks for your response Hobbyist Software Ltd, yes going to higher settings does improve the quality of the picture but the other issues are still there, even with the higher settings the quality isn't as crisp as with the earlier version

Wanted to like this app a while But it has just never worked correctly. Have been just dealing with the frequent crashes and odd bugs. But today's update killed all the videos stored on the device and now I have no media. Flight home should be fun. Developer, I do have 2.00.03 and google play just updated it today, breaking all my transcoded media. It just hangs on "initializing decoders"
