    Aw man, please, don't drop the feature, as @MVG said before, options are always good, it's not like you are competing agaist other video players, even if your video player on NXShell isn't fully featured, something that "just works" would be appreciated, after all your video player is pretty much done, I don't see the need of removing the feature. Keep up the good work @Joel16 and never give up :D

    Every good file manager need a video player. Please don't remove it.

    It's ok if you remove video player. Concentrate in the file explorer. But, already is the best file explorer so is in you what is the next move :)

    I second this notion. At least let us buy you a coffee/beer.

    You can do it, there's a link in the GitHub...

    I'd like to have a video-player in NX-Shell, wether it's made from the ground up or adapted from already existing open-source code does not really matter to me but it feels like NX-Shell is in need of such a feature as it could really be a great multi-media app for the switch...

    Awesome! Thanks for letting me know! I'll definitely be donating a coffee or 5 for such a handy homebrew app.

    Also, for the record, I'm not against having a video player in NX-Shell but I'd rather @Joel16 focuses on the file browser side first. Also the ebook reader. Thanks for keeping up the good work, Joel!

    I think that having a video player in NX-Shell is convenient, since NX-Shell looks nice, is easy to use and has a music player.

    Off-topic though, could you add a text editor to NX-Shell at some point, please?

    Just to be clear, i did start working (port) with ffmpeg there's more than 6 months now, and started the ui (pplay) there is more than 3 months. So yes, it can be frustrating to see people doing the same stuff as us, but it was also the case for me when you started working on this (and this is also why i did announce it so you know it's already in a good shape :P ).

    Doesn't concern you.
    All good cpasjuste, I knew you back from the good old PSP days (CFW extender was it?) and I trust that you'll have something really nice under your hands. I just didn't want to have people questioning me about implementing various features like yours later on (users complaining about why does X have this, but Y doesn't). NX-Shell isn't a fully pledged video player, infact I didn't even think about it until some people mentioned it back in the early releases around July/Agusut.. I just wanted to give it some basic support like pause/play, rewind/forward and I'd call it. I'll still try and come up a basic implementation, but that's all I'd be doing here with the video player.

    Also for the people who encourage me daily and support my projects, I haven't forgotten about you guys. Thank you very much for your constant support!

    NX-Shell v1.1.0 avialable.

    First of all, I want to wish everyone a happy new year! I also want to apologize for the lack of certain features with the following update. I really wanted to do more with this release, but I became ill right after I had my finals during mid December, and I couldn't really do much, and to add to that I was also away at the time so things got really bad during then :(, Unfortunately I had just the past week to do most of the cleaning up and wasn't able to work on some things but most stuff had to be put back. For example the video player had to be removed for this release because it just wasn't ready, and I haven't had the time to purchase a usb-c device to do any testing with that either. However, I did manage to sneak in a few little things with my short time. I hope you guys appreciate this release. Thanks for all your constant support! I'll be continuing my work on this in 2019, expect great things! Anyway:

    Change-log:
    • Make cancel button functional via buttons.
    • Add image rotation and flipping.
    • Fixed portrait orientation next/previous page buttons in ebook reader.
    • Allow movement after image is zoomed in gallery. (Right analog stick to zoom into image, left analog stickto move around zoomed image.)
    • Made some minor adjustments to delta time and minor fixes with the status bar alignment.
    • Fixed menu bar animation timing.
    • Fixed buffer overflow when selecting a file with a large name.
    • Integrate FTP menu using mtheall's ftpd src. (Can be toggled from within the menu bar).
    • Fixed some dialog title alignment issues.
    • Fixed bug with the PLUS button causing music player to exit, when it should be toggling locked mode.
    • Add support for extracting .RAR files.
    • Added support for rendering animated GIFs. (May take a while to load, and some GIFs may have wrong timings, so far I've tested 5 GIFs and only one out of the 5 had timing issues).
