  1. Subtitle placement on the TV Screen

    Most movies or videos are not full screen, but have a black bar above and below the picture. Zap always has the subtitles displayed on the picture portion of the screen even when the upper and low black bars are present; Why? Take advantage of this dark area to position the subtitle text. If you view other Media Players all have the text in in this lower part of the TV Screen.

  2. Play list

    It will be nice to have option to play only files selected (highlighted yellow) as play list and also to be able play them random.
    This apply for both Music and Video.
    Presently random selection (even is in Music settings) do not work.
    in Video settings there is no option to select random.

  4. iTunes server on Zappiti 4k

    Create an iTunes Server on Zappiti 4k (like a NAS).
    - The music is stored on the Zappiti (boot quickly than a NAS and you can turn off when you don't use)
    - Control Music from iOS Devices with the App "Remote" (iPhone or iPad)
    - Send Music on DLNA device like Denon AVR-X3300W
    This system works very well but a NAS is to long to boot for me.

  5. Explorer should have VIEWING OPTIONS before entring the folder view: Video, Music, Pictures OR All Files.

    Viewing 100% of all files in a folder is insane. When activating entry into the Explorer, a menu should follow offering a selection of what files to ONLY view in the folders. The options should list: ONLY Videos & only Music & only Pictures, and All files.

  7. Static IP

    Function Static IP (manual) do not work.
    By unchecking DHCP player will disconnect from network.
    Setting desired IP, Gateway, DNS will not enable network connection.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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....

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
