    Surprisingly good video player! I've used before MX Player and VLC Player but these app is in another league (much better). Very responsive and clean interface, easy to configure. Works flawlessly with my chineese Android TV. The only thing I would like to suggest to developers is the possibility to change the size of the subtitle font. Thanks!

    fire tv Absolutely brilliant!! I started using Nova Player as Archos stopped working on my Nvidia Shield TV. It's so easy to use and you have the ability to change the poster art and thumbnails. I have it connected to my Western Digital PR2100 and it has scraped all my movies. The 'use other player' option is good, as I use Kodi in conjunction with it and I'm very pleased with the playback quality. It also has regular updates too, so I highly recommend this app.

    apk Actually surprised by how good this app is on my Nvidia shield. Not a big fan of Kodi so a media player that scrapes titles for tv and movies is a big plus. Like the ability to download subtitles quickly as well. One minor negative is that there's only one other aspect ratio on the app and it distorts when in full screen because of the A.I upscaling feature on the shield. Not the only app that has this problem. Still, it's an excellent app that should be the default on the shield. Two Thumbs up!

    android tv Seems to be working for Android TV 9. I see an option for playlists, but I don't see how to make one for the videos I keep on an external USB drive. The only options I see are sync with trakt account which I don't have or want or a rather cryptic note to create it by adding new items from video info. No idea what is meant by that, can't find how to do that.

    alternative If you got an unidentified bunch of video episodes with just numbers it will detect them as random movies that have those numbers in their titles and it's hilarious. This is more like a kodi/plex style player, intended for remotes. It does the job and it keeps it simple. Does not have any of the fancy touch based gesture controls that others do but it covers all the basics.

    vs archos It's really very good app for my android TV.. better picture quality and additional audio boost ... Only lacking is unable to see movie list unless We need to check in external drive option...Apart from this rest of the thing's are very good...

    apk download Impressed by the functionality and the conveniency. Plays all my movies. Used Kodi before but its youtube trailer addon is no longer supported. Nova offers even more trailers per movie, LAN streaming works, remings pretty much Archos player interface but is free and no ads. Loved it!

    Connects well with my home media server (smb) and the interface is amazing on my fire stick tv.

  15. guest-avatar

    Great network SMB and DLNA player. One of a few that can play media from your LAN server. Using it with QNAP NAS.
