Reviews From google play store

I rarely write reviews but this app is amazing!!! I use SMB library for my media and the app works like a charm for all media & codes. VLC was my go to app but Nova blew my mind - the interface is easy to use and the app automatically adds subtitles and movie posters so you can enjoy the media without any hustle on your TV. Kudos to the devs!

An excellent open source network media player. However, resuming streaming video is not quite as functional as VLC, which may be an unfair comparison, given the extensive development infrastructure behind VLC.

Brilliant concept and easy to use. If I'd have to wish for something, it's the ability to refresh Network shares without going to the settings, and maybe brightness touch controll in playback.

SD card was not in folder view, eventually was able to find it after selecting 'cloud'. Won't play m4v or flv files.

This video player is absolutely phenomenal.I haven't yet tried regretting going premium with this app. One thing, every update just make the app more delightful using it . One suggestion though, can you make the background dynamic?. Where the backdrop changes colour as to what you currently selecting on screen. That would make your app even more complete

This is a good substitute for the Plex app, if you occasionally want to play local media. Plex doesn't scrape Metadata for local files. BUT... Nova can't natively send video to a Chromecast. So you have to "open with" and select something to play the file with that DOES support casting... like VLC. That one feature would make this a five-star app, heck I'd even pay for it, but until then it's just a fancy front end.

Uses a MASSIVE amount of space for "user data," MUCH more than other players, not to mention the app size is quite a bit larger than other, similar players despite having fewer features & a rougher design. I still might have kept it since it's open-source, but then wasted my time typing a post on the Reddit "support" sub asking about this only to find it's restricted & I can't post on it. There are other, better players (e.g. VLC, XPlayer) that do more, are better designed, & use less space.

Fantastic App and great to see it still progressing. Couple of requests to the current devs. Could you please add a Sort feature by Actor or Director. And in Audio Settings allow 5 or 6.1ch audio to be routed as LR Stereo because some films seem far too loud with effects or background music or effects over the Voices. These 2 additions would be sweet as honey. Thanks for your efforts.

"NOVA stands for opeN sOurce Video Player....consisting of a fork of the original Archos Video." No wonder the interface and everything else look 99.9% identical to my paid Archos Video. The only difference though, its a lot less stable than Archos. It hangs at end of each video. Reinstalled Archos, and everything works normal. Come to think of it....why make Nova when there is already an Archos Free version?

Resume playback isn't working after I updated my Xiaomi Mi A2 to Android 10.

requires following permissions on your android device.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

send sticky broadcast
Allows the app to send sticky broadcasts, which remain after the broadcast ends. Excessive use may make the phone slow or unstable by causing it to use too much memory.

Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
