What’s to come in version 1.8

I think I’ve told you guys several times that the next update is going to be the biggest update yet, and that it’ll take some time to get it done. Anyway, I thought I’d give you an idea of what’s to come – or at least what I’ve got planned. Some of the things might be implemented differently or not at all, but these are the things I’d like to add in the next version:

Version 1.8:

  • DLNA / UPnP support
  • IMDb support (but TMDb will still have advantages like backdrops, cover browser and actor info)
  • Improved overview of TV show episodes / seasons
  • Improved search
  • Improved TV show manual identification
  • Improved update process
  • Localized data for TV shows
  • More various settings
  • Network support (Samba / CIFS)
  • Some translations (and ability to use English as default)
  • Support for 7-inch tablets (added in
  • TV show favourites
  • Watch list
  • (Improved code structure – not really a feature, but makes it easier for me!)

Again – just a friendly reminder that the above mentioned upcoming features / changes are planned but might be subject to change. It might not end up exactly as planned. Just keep it in mind… 


  1. Don’t mean to add to your workload, but wonder if we could also have manual movie identification? Mizuu generally does a good job of scraping movies, but would be useful for the occasional one it misidentifies.

    • Hi Dan!

      That already exists. Just tap the “More” button at the very top right of the screen when you’re in the movie details view and hit “Identify movie”.


  2. Sweet, I am so looking forward to this. Thanks for all your work. One of my favorite apps at a great price!

  3. Huh. Look at that! Didn’t realize that was there. Thanks so much!

  4. Michell,

    I would love to see DLNA/UpNP and Samba support!

    I D/Led the app you suggested (MovieBrowse), and it has a VERY long way to go. I couldn’t get the network to work with it.

    I have over 9 Terabyte of digital movies and TV shows (It took for ever to copy all the DVD’s). It would be freaking awesome to access them with my soon to be ICS 4.0.3 Motorola Xoom.

    Please, please make networking a first priority.


  5. Hello Michell, Been a fan from day one has been grat to see this app grow and grow….. well done and very nice app. /i appreciate you have alot of programming and content to add but would there be a feature to download to device. for example

    i play “X” movie from network support i,e, samba or upnp and there to be a download button to download to the device?

    this would be handy for me as i never really store anything on my tab unless i want to take it somewhere and this would be a really great feature to add with the upcoming network support.

    • Hi Dan!

      Thanks a lot. I’m not sure I fully understand your question though – you want to download files from your network storage device? I think it’d be significantly faster if you use a PC to transfer the files or perhaps even a file manager with CIFS / Samba support on the device itself 🙂

  6. Hi Mitchell
    Any chance that this version comes out?
