    Anyway to switch audio tracks? I transferred a Japanese anime movie the other day and when I got ready to watch it, it would only play in german. On my PC with VLC I can switch it to Japanese, and switch subtitles too.

    I bought this yesterday and I tried out a 576p MKV Blu-ray rip at lunch time and it ran flawlessly...

    Then this evening I set minimal logging levels using ##LOGS# (##5647#) and now video is stuttering and audio is getting out of sync. Is this something to do with the change I made to the logging levels or is it unrelated?

    I was really hoping this thing could handle 576p videos.

There are no install instructions on the website either. I attempted to download the file to my PC but could do nothing with it there either. Can someone help me out here? thanks

    Are you running this on a Pre? Logging will eat up CPU cycles for sure.

    I just installed the latest beta version (v0.3.6) and I've been having some playback issues. It's a little hard to explain, so bare with me :P I should mention that the audio and video sync up perfectly, so that's not the problem. The problem is that the video is very blurry and pixel-y. With the resolution being 624x352, you can make the argument that the resolution is the problem, but it's not because my iPad can play this video perfectly fine (not blurry/pixel-y).

    I took the liberty to take a screenshot of the video's codec information:


    Hope my screenshot helps in identifying the problem :3

    PS: I have the player installed as a trial, if that changes anything.
    PPS: How long does the trial last?

    Running on a Touchpad...

    The irony is that I went from the stock logging to minimal logging and now video is running worse.

    Probably you tried restarting your TouchPad already? All we can say, the video playback performance will not drop suddenly without a change in the system. Are you running any custom kernel?

    Nope, literally the only thing I did was turn down the logging... I did try restarting, but I can try again I suppose.

    You can also try the latest beta version which has improved performance:

    http://www.kalemsoft.com/betas/com.k..._0.3.6_all.ipk

    If you purchased it through the app catalog, you can still try the beta for a week (hopefully, by the time it expires the update will be available on the app catalog anyway). If you purchased it from us directly, you can activate it like before.

    Oh great! The new 0.3.6 version seems to have perfect audio and video playback! At least for me. And of course volume control is no problem with the TouchPad's own volume control.

    If srt and ssa/*** subtitle support is added, this will be just the app I need for media playback on TouchPad! Just fantastic!

    *edit Seems like they censor acronym for Advanced Sub Station (Alpha) subtitle file format here. lol

    Volume for the new build is lower than before and there's no longer the ability to raise the volume in the app while a video is playing... is this a bug or just something left out of the beta?

    Was able to install and bring up application. One more question please. The .avi files are widescreen or letterbox and when played on the TP are distorted to fit into the TP screen. Is there a way to adjust this so that they display correctly. Thanks so much.

    I found the aspect ratio buttin, thanks again. :^)

    Quick question, will you be including embedded or file supported subtitles, any time soon?

    Hey, got my TouchPad today (just like everyone else!) and am trying out your media player. Excellent stuff, handles files a lot better than the internal player. One bug and one tiny feature request, though:

    1) A lot of my content was encoded anamorphically, using Handbrake, with iPhone & Apple TV in mind. It seems neither the default player or the Kalemsoft Media Player notice that the content is anamorphic, and the video is very distorted and not scaled to its proper dimensions. Before I go and re-encode EVERYTHING, would you plan on fixing this in a newer version?

    2) The "local files" browser starts in the bottom of the user folder, /media/internal/. It'd be nice if I could set a default folder, e.g. /media/internal/Videos/ so I don't have to go through everything in the home directory.

    Thanks very much, looks like pretty great stuff. Would you profit more if I bought it from you direct or through the store? :P

    Doesn't aspect ratio button help?

    Afraid it does not. I'm running 0.3.6, and the aspect ratio button seems to behave more like a "fit to screen button" - toggling it does nothing to change the aspect ratio. It simply seems to change between "fill screen, with cropping" and "fit to screen, with black bars".

    Here's a video of it: Aspect ratio scaling on 0.3.6 - YouTube

    The metadata for the video is below:

    What is the best format if you are going to convert a file? I have a 720p file that plays all garbled up. Was thinking of converting it but want to make sure i keep the best quality.

    Now since the whole point of KalemSoft player is that it plays files without converting, if you're going to convert I think you should just convert it to format supported by built in movie player.
    This is easily done by selecting the iPad preset of most converting programs. H.264 MP4 file 720p
