Just saw this...
To quote Davilla himself:
MrMC for tvos Released
BUT wait "The status for the following app has changed to Processing for App Store. It can take up to 24 hours before your app is available on the App Store. This delay is dependent on any app availability issues." HAHAHA, more waiting.
Awesome news - I interpret it as its approved and floating through the App Store tubes somewhere.
It's on US App Store. $5.99
On Canada too $6.99 but having issues with 2 factor authentication purchasing.
Got it installed, had to sign out of app store in settings and resign in. Maybe something to do with upgrading to latest tvOS 9.1!?!
Just launched it and looks like Kodi/XBMC - sorta surreal
Added my Movies folder off NAS and selected local information only (had it all setup from using Kodi/XBMC for years with NFO and thumbnails/art). Few minutes and all imported working perfect! For those who don't have local metadata would use scraper.
Everything I have tried so far works and I can actually skip forward and back through video using harmony remote. Very good port for first release and my compliments to MrMC for this!
No plugins/add ons correct?
is this better than plex?
No plugins or addons because it had to be stripped down to make it app store compliant. I don't think this is a big deal since it is running on AppleTV as one of many apps therefore a traditional addon in many cases may be replaced by a real tvos app.
Plex is different and can't be compared to the likes of MrMC or Infuse. I do like the navigation better in MrMC but also like how Plex has a main library for all clients. Both have advantages and disadvantages. As a standalone media player MrMC is the best so far now for ATV4. I use Plex though lots and I like them both.
I am a bit biased towards Kodi and have lots of history with it way back to original Xbox and even its predecessor XBMP.
Pretty disappointing that there is not much hype for MrMC as compared to other similar apps - hopefully some major sites cover its release soon as it is pretty significant
i think they late to party
if this had come out early in nov it would be front page news like plex was , but now there are other options already out that do almost the same thing
plus with this mrmc name and not kodi is not helping
It is only less than a week behind infuse release.
This is fork of Kodi so it can't use the name, but we will see an official Kodi soon now for sure.
But it won't take long before people realize what this MrMC app is.
Not according to developers of Kodi.
They say it never gona happen.
Just bought this app.
Please, can someone explain how to add video files stored on my Time Capsule?
(I am a complete noob with this.)
Where did you read that?
This is from a Kodi dev:
Just bought it and tested it. It works great. No stutter in videos like Infuse. Everything is very smooth.
Then he has changes his mind because he early said that Kodi whould never be released on ATV4
This is a great app thanks. It is a little overwhelming for us newcomers though - is there an idiot-proof users guide out there?
Bare in mind it was release hours ago and i dont know the biggest different from Kodi.
But search for Kodi and you will find much information.
I would be interested to know if it can play certain video files that neither Infuse nor Nastify can handle, specifically:
MTS videos (this is the format my camcorder shoots in)
MPEG2 codec videos
high bitrate videos the likes iPhones shoot in 60p or slow motion 240p
interlaced videos (e.g. DVD rips most of which are 60i)
I understand why not, but if this did have support for Add ons then it truly would be a killer app.
This really is the best video app I've tried so far. Being able to fine adjust intricacies such as lip-sync and de-interlacing options etc, just makes it far more flexible than anything else out there.
It has played every format I have thrown at it and buttery smooth. Very nice work
The formats you have thrown at it include some or all of the ones I mentioned?
I've bought it, managed to get the filmon add on running and had a TV section with EPG and everything. Could play live channels without issue. Now the TV section has gone and I don't know how I managed it in the first step. Very confusing for me as i am unfamiliar with kodi. Is there a user guide knocking around anywhere?
I have a feeling that after entering my login details for filmon, it worked but it looks like the settings are not being saved
Can someone with this app confirm if it supports deleting files? Does it remember the position of last playback? Does the live tv functionality support one .m3u file containing all channels and seamlessly let you change channels like in Kodi?
About remembering the position of last playback: yes. It also keeps track of the files you played.
