Here’s something similar to Mizuu!

A user of Mizuu sent me a link today. The link was to an application for Android that’s similar to Mizuu – it’s a movie / Tv show manager, but the developer seems to have taken a different approach. That’s good for both me and him, as we can quite possibly learn a lot from each other. I just gave the application a try earlier today and I liked it. It’s different from Mizuu in a lot of ways, so I thought I’d mention it here on the blog, and let every one try it out. Hopefully I can also get some feedback on what people would like to see in Mizuu, and likewise the developer of MovieBrowser can get some pointers to where users would like to see him go with the application.

Anyway, like I just said, the name of the app is MovieBrowser HD for Tablets and you can find both a free version and paid version on Market. The paid version includes support for SMB networking without root access – that’s brilliant! Hopefully, I’ll be able to do something similar with Mizuu. MovieBrowser only works on Android 3.0+ like Mizuu, and also includes support for ICS-based phones.

Anyway, give it a try and let’s make both apps even better!

  1. This is why you’re an awesome dev. You basically gave this guy free advertising (seemingly so) and have a great attitude about potential “competition.” Props to you.

    New website looks great btw.

  2. The upnp option works ok on my nas aswell as the play to feature. Question for michel: is it possible to select the upper folder name for movie scraping in mizuu? I do this in xbmc and like the feature because with the orginal filename, it is much easier to find the matching subtitle.

  3. tired of these apps, although they do there jobs beautifuly… my tablet mounts in my truck i wanna see more dedication to your own art and .nfo files, support for fanart, logo.png (from fanart.tv) and banner.jpg, and poster.jpg and folder.jpg.

    Basically i want to implement music videos with my own art and .nfo I dont wanna scan for nothing. and if the application could take screenshots of the music videos and movies at 30 second intervals and show off 4 custom thumbnails that would be cool too. Just like xbmc. but xbmc doesnt take screenshots for you, but it does show plenty of “eyecandy”
