Is there any in restriction in resolution? In other words, if the video/sound is stuttering (1080p video), do I need to use overclock or is the Switch just not capable of playing such video flawlessly?

hello friends, for now I think the app is perfect as it is, but if you have any suggestions, you can comment on them
I agree, the app came a long way and thank you for all the contributor. and It came along really well and really fast!

I have troubles compiling the libass portlib on debian.

regardless of my installed version of harfbuzz, (which compiles fine)
configure: error: Package requirements (harfbuzz >= 1.2.3) were not met:

No package 'harfbuzz' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables HARFBUZZ_CFLAGS
and HARFBUZZ_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
Aborting...

For added feature suggestion:
Thumbnail of the video being generated could be nice - (local and remote files)

On the thread, implementing access to PLEX was mentioned at some point. As a heavy plex user, I would welcome this - or a fork of nxmp - but I have no idea of the scope of such implementation.

there you have the compiled portlibs of the nightly builds in case you want to do something with them.

Hi, would nxmp work on my switch oled using the latest official firmware? Or a custom firmware is mandatory for the player to work?

If you could boot homebrew without cfw...then yes. But obviously you need a cfw for that ;)
I am not very familiar with these terms. I guess the answer was that i am not able to run nxmp. Is there any other way / trick / app to play movies from my sd card using the official firmware?

Hello, I don't understand because I have many videos in a media folder, all mp4, but when I open the folder with nxmp it shows it empty, why?

Are there uncommon letters in the file names? Like Ä, Ö, Ü or something like this? IIRC the media player has problems with these letters. Or with other words said, that was the reason why the player didn't show my video files because of these letters.

Is there a way to get an idea why the app is crashing by connecting to a samba share?

I set up a samba server on a RaspberryPi with Debian running. My samba share uses a password and I checked my config.
For a few days now I try to figure out what's wrong... There is only the message "The software was closed because an error occured." This message appears about 2-3 seconds after selecting the SMB entry.

On the server itself there are no login attempts from the switch in the logs.

I tried with the stable and also with the nightly version. Anyone with ideas?

I use a switch with FW 13.1.0 and Atmosphere 1.3.1
Could the connection to the WLAN on 5 GHz be the issue?

just a suggestion, but isn't it about time to put a pause on new features to clean up the code (unused variables and allocation warnings and such), and throw together some build instructions? You're using a few libraries that aren't available from DKP, and simply grabbing required headers only gets as far as the linker stage. That's where I fail miserably. most DEVs build on a Linux platform, so I use ubuntu in a VM... but even with sqlite3 and libsqlite-dev installed, it can't find the header unless I manually copy it into your project's includes. One of the linker errors is even -lsqlite3, and like I said, I have it installed.

https://github.com/proconsule/nxmp-portlibs/releases/ extract this in the devkitpro portlibs folder.
