Please add the ability to recognize two episodes in one file. Sometimes a TV show will air back to back episodes as one. We mark the file similar to S01E01_E02 (or other variants) but AVP only indexes the first episode and it looks like we are missing the other episode. (If this does already exist please let me know the naming standard as I can't get it to work, thanks.)

I like this video player but I wish it had support for 64 bit MP4 files. I have a server with my videos a mixture of 32 and 64 bit MP4 and through sharing I have access to them. When it encounters a 64 bit I can't play it and have to change the settings to play with an external player.

Normally they are > 4GB in size which I can get the player to popup the error "File is damaged or incomplete." 100% of the time. I created a small one @ http://www.sukiware.com/downloads/NIXON.mp4 but testing using it I cannot replicate it well enough to say "do this".  It is most likely the seek beyond the 32 bit bounds.  (I create the files using Handbrake.)

Please add UTF-8 support to FTP.

Please add auto scanning of indexed folder option by user defined timing.

Please add an option that scanned info data will be bind to a file name only. So, when file is relocated, archos will not recognize it as new added and will not look for info again.

How do I re-scan a shared folder (SMB) that has already been indexed? I have added and edited some videos in my collection and I don't see an option to re-scan for changes or additions. Thanks.

+Temis Nunez Do you have the "Indexed folders" category in the SMB list? You should be able to long-press on the items of this "sub-list". Also the top-right menu should contain a "Re-scan all indexed folders" item.

Please add FTPS and remote path option too in FTP(S)/SFTP. Eg. If i want the server.com/path/to/certain/folder

I can connect to server.com with my credentials (SFTP) but if i try to connect to server.com/path/to/certain/folder then archos video play throws an error.

Wow Archos Video Player is used by lesnumeriques  on new freebox AndroidTV mini4k \o/
http://www.lesnumeriques.com/disque-dur-multimedia/free-freebox-mini-4k-p25237/freebox-mini-4k-pas-test-en-attendant-meilleure-stabilite-n40709.html

For freebox users, audio passthrough will only sort of work (alpha for now) when volume is set to 100%. Feedback has been provided to free how to enable it properly. Hope they will comply in a future firmware update.

I have four folders, each two are on a different physical drive.

First two, Archos can access without any problem (without username or password)
Second two, Archos requires username and password (and cannot connect even when inputting the user name).

All four folders are set up EXACTLY the same and are on the same computer with the same security and sharing options set.
All four folders have no passwords and Windows sharing (Windows 8.0) is set to no authentication.
Archos is installed on Xtreamer Prodigy 4K with latest firmware.
Latest version of Archos installed (although this happened on the previous versions as well.
Stock player and Kodi are able to access the same four folders without needing a password or username.

any more info I can provide ?

There is also a problem with SBS-3D which tears the screen (half of the movie is made of diagnol lines and the other half is'nt blended properly).

Thanks !

So the player crashed today, took the ArchosTV with it. No big deal, you'd think.
Except it seem to have corrupted the database of watched and progress and lost everything. Not happy at all, that such a thing is possible.
This was a major asset of AVP, now I can't trust it for that and it's just another dumb player. Shame.

Hi there - Archos Video Player looks absolutely amazing on Android TV but I can't get any audio playback. It tells me to go download some plugins and directs me to the Android TV Play store, but I can't find any plugins there. Can this be fixed? Thanks!

For now, you can use the "delay" menu of AVP then set the vertical position, perhaps we will implement a better way for ass files
