Hi all,

coming from Kodi and JRiver I wanted to try MP...

I have very few mandatory requirements:
MadVR is a must... so MP2 seems to be not very reliable
Iso support
UHD/HDR
DVD Menus (BR / UHD would be nice but I could live without)
Audio Bitstream Passthrough

that's basically it... is MP capable to meet these requirements ?
I installed the software and came across the first problem: my videos are stored on a NAS and I want to access them using UNC Paths... I can't find the location where I can enter the server credentials (user/pass). I can map the shares, however I would rather like not to...

Any input is greatly appreciated.

BR

Found it... you need to have a Windows Local Account with the same credentials that are used for your NAS.

The MP UI just blows me away... AWESOME !

Hi Ajs,
thanks for your input... where can I find a basic setup guide ?
Would the standard player be sufficient or do I need an external player to make use of MadVR ?

Many thanks
Guido

As probably expected...
Where/how can I edit the Skin/Layout... eg. I want to remove the TV section
E.g. I have multiple Shares named like UHD, New, Concerts etc. all videos in different formats (mostly mkv, many iso some avi)... I'd like to have them in their own view (not everything thrown into Videos).
I also like to have Collections (like all James Bond Movies)
I didn't dare to start and have my TV Shows scraped...

Sorry to ask stupid questions... I searched the Wiki but couldn't find it...

Many thanks
Sky

    I use the standard Titan skin... in Video I switched from the folder view to something else, but then still all Videos from my Shares 'New' and 'UHD' are mixed... but I want them separate...

    Many thanks
