        • Explorer Icon Box in Folder view should be eliminated for other use.

          The icon Box to the right of the file/folder view is redundant. Use this space to extend the length of the file names. Though it is cool to have a picture in this box when highlighting a folders, this is not the case for individual files, thereby useless and the space should be used to length file name. Also, a ticker-tape of the file name should be a feature for each highlighted folder and file having more text than provided in the file name space.

            • Stop trying to keep identifying files that has already failed

              Each time I start my Zappiti, it starts a identify task, which is fine. But this task tries to identify all unknown files, even those that have been already tried and failed.

              It should be stored in the database which files has already been tried identified and failed, so they don't have to be identified again.

              This would mean that it should be possible, through the menus, to start an identify job that re-identifies all previously failed files.

              • Allow to modify the main tittle of a TV serie

                To allow proper sorting of the series, please allow simple modification of the main title of a TV serie. I suggest a similar approach than the groups of movies. This would give us the possibility to organize properly the series. For exemple: The 100 -> 100 (the) would put the serie 100 under 100 and not T....

                • Explorer, ticker-tap view of lengthly file names.

                  Most video player have ticker-tap viewing of file name that are longer than the space provided. I name my files making them especially long, e.g. "S!-Star Wars 5 1980 The Empire Strikes Back, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher.mkv". I would suggest also that the box to the right of the file name be eliminated to allow for more viewing of the file names. Besides, file information can be viewed using the "INFO" button. Thought the icon box works for folders containing pictures, once a file is selected that are is redundant; used the space to extend the length of…

                  • Subtitle size varies from video to video, and the numberical setting, e.g. '20', remains constant.

                    Subtitle text-view changes in size from one video to another; even though the size numerical setting remains unchanged. This effect is due to the aspect value of the video. Separate the subtitle text present from the aspect ratio of the video. In doing so, one a subtitle size is selected it will remain constant for each and every other video played. Again, other media players have this feature for years.

                    • Gapless playback of FLAC (and other formats) audio files when using DLNA.

                      When playing a music album using a DLNA player casting to Zappiti player, where each song is ripped in it's own FLAC file, it would be nice to be able to play the files with no gaps.

                      I can see, when my TV is on while playing an album, that the music player keeps starting and stopping for each file played, which takes 1-2 seconds between each file.

                      • Improve the instructions on the media player, use YouTube

                        1. Use someone who has not used the media player to write the instructions. I had some difficult finding the files until I discover that you enter the file then scroll to the right then please ok.
                        2. Use Youtube for describe initial set up procedureand problem you encounter
                        3.You need to difine the description of the files better, if you have 2 file for one film how would you identify them?
                        4. Improve the ring around the ok button, very difficult to see the back button, home button for the first time user. Of course not problem once you…

                        • Slow changing of song using DLNA on new firmware B7 / Player 4K 4.8.126

                          It takes up to 20 seconds for my Zappiti player to react to an action using DLNA after new firmware B7 / Player 4K (version 4.8.126) on the Zappiti box.

                          I usually play uncompressed FLAC files in various bit rates.

                          Previously it was a smooth experience navigating the Zappiti player using DLNA, but not anymore.

                          • Auto switching between 4X3 and 16X9

                            It would be good if Media Centre would automatically select the screen format rather than selecting Menu/Aspect Ratio then Full or Fit.

                            • Is it possible to get a "direct" function that disables Magic Pixel prossesing of the image.

                              It should be possible to disable the Magic Pixel prossesing, possibly a "direct out" function, especially when source material has same resolution as the destination (tv) (1080p material on 1080p display).

                                    Once you chose the language of the subtitles, it would be very comfortable to chosse between several subtitles to match perfectly the movie you wanna watch.Thx !

                                    • Provide a method to create a playlist for video files, so you can play several files without manually selecting and starting.

                                      With this option you could make a set of video files and have Zappiti play them one other, e.g. a set of trailers or a trailer followed by a movie. Maybe it could be based on the existing grouping of video files or a separate feature

                                          I would love to see a recently viewed menu, so that when you press the recents menu, you will have an option of selecting either recently viewed or recently added instead of going directly into added. This would make it so much easier to keep up with what you are watching.
