I just got the App yesterday and it works pretty well for me. I do have one question (or maybe feature request):
Is there a way to "browse" the network for SMB shares or CIFS shares?
I'm running a Synology server, and don't want to enable its "Media Server" feature since it would take it days to index my 30,000+ video files (and my laptops and Popcorn Hour work fine with CIFS and SMB).

Hello. I have a question. I got two PB 64 one for my 2 years old and one for me. I have purchased this application for the 2 PB aleary and they work fine with my NAS 4000 Ultra and the Server component.
The question I have is, can we set up an account only to access some directories, example set up an account call kid that will only access a kids movies and anoher account named adulta that will have access to all the movie directories. In doind this my kid will not access by accident any movie that is not apprpiated for him.
I hope you understand my question

KalemSoft Media Player for Playbook Released
Whilst its annoying we can't do this maybe in future when pb gets bb10 it will have some api built in to do it, even getting files off your blackberry phone via bridge to it is a challenge!
I wish you had the option when browsing files via dlna to download them to the playbook for viewing off line, aceplayer on ipad does this and its great to leave our daughter to set her films and programs to take with her on a trip.
Re the other post about securing kids areas, not sure its a kalemsoft issue - I've never seen anything dlna request a password, shame as you're correct I can record tv programs on my humax past the 'water shed' and don't want her watching them but they don't seem to have catered for it.
Of course with samba it could be different if it was possible

I can't see where Files & Folders can access Samba / CIFS shares. ES File Explorer does though.
I wish Files & Folders did have it.
It would be a nice feature but KalemSoft is correct, their Server does a fine job. It's fast, lightweight and allows access from outside your own LAN.

I wanted to add one thing about my request for an EQ, just to illustrate my dilemma.
I have two great apps on my Playbook....Kalemsoft and Neutron.
Currently Kalemsoft offers all the DNA and remote access I can dream of, but the sound quality is mediocre, at best, when listening to audio files. Neutron player on the other hand has just incredible sound controls through both parametric AND graphic equalizers. These controls create a sound that is like day and night when compared with Kalemsoft. HOWEVER, Neutron player does not have DLNA capability...it plays local files only.
Therefore my current usage is that I use Kalemsoft if I have to stream audio, but when playing local, it is always Neutron.
My challenge to both Kalemsoft and Neutron is this:
Kalemsoft - Create sound controls that allow me to achieve the audio quality of Neutron, and I not only make Kalemsoft my full time player, but I sing Kalemsoft's praises from the highest mountain. In fact, if I ever had an app that combined the streaming capability of Kalemsoft and the audio quality of Neutron, well....I'd go so far as to say I'd even pay $50 for that app!
Neutron - Add DLNA in a user friendly interface like Kalemsoft has, and you become my only audio app. Again, I'd happily pay $50 for that!
Com'on, who's going to take the challenge and do it?

Heck, yes the PB is $129, BUT, having the streaming capability of Kalemsoft and the audio quality of Neutron, it would revolutionize the way I listen to music, and make it infinitely more enjoyable and practical.
That to me is worth the $50.
HOWEVER, the caveat is that it would have to have the sound quality of Neutron, not just a slight improvement over the current quality. In otherwords, don't just throw in a half-arse EQ.
Again...I put the challenge out there for Kalemsoft to rise to the occasion!!!!

I had a peculiar situation with Kalemsoft media player. The other day I lost my internet for about 24hrs ( a snowplow sheared of 400 pair of phone lines at my provider). When there is no internet the Media Player will not connect to the streamer. My local network was fine. I was only trying to play files on my local network. I can't see why local files on the local network would not play. Is this normal?

Universal Media Server) and seems to work better in terms of media server discovery. Let me know if anyone is interested in the Kalemsoft.conf I put together.

Came across a video that won't play... the thumbnail shows up when you select the video in KMP, but when you attempt to play the video it shows a blank screen with the media controls at the bottom. Fast forwarding back and forth doesn't do anything either, however the video plays fine on the computer. In fact this video actually crashed the whole PlayBook and restarted itself! How can I get a segment of this video uploaded somewhere for testing?"
"Please contact us here and we will send you a link.
Has this been solved or being looked into?
I too have a couple of rmvb files that cannot be played in KMP, but can be played perfectly in QMPlayer.

Do we know when can we expect i have more than 300+ files on my NAS and browsing them is a pain especially when scrolling if something gets pressed it goes in folder and when going back takes you to the top which is very annoying please increase the size of browsing area much like a file explorer
