    Hi, firstly great work! Thanks for adding catchup. One question when will this be available in the app stores (amazon and Google) please? As if I install it does not unlock ads I paid unless it’s installed from the store. Thanks in advance.

    • londonsnews says:

      It’s in the Play store. 1.4.2. is the latest in the Amazon Appstore.

    • nikman says:

      1.4.3 version is already on Google Play store and will be available on Amazon appstore soon.

    • nikman says:

      1.4.3 version is now available both on Google Play and Amazon Appstore.

      • Bill Siegel says:

        How do I push it to update to the latest version on my Firestick? I did see 1.4.3 was available. Should I just uninstall and reinstall? If I do that won’t I lose my favorites? What’s the best way to update please? Also, I love this player. It’s top notch! Thank you for updating it I have the paid version on 3 devices and hands down this one is the best!

        • nikman says:

          You only need to update the app and don’t need to make uninstall before.
          Just in case, you should make settings backup: Settings->Defaults->Backup settings.

  2. Jimbo says:

    Do I have to uninstall the previous version first? When I tried to install over the previous version, it wouldn’t install..

    • nikman says:

      You shouldn’t uninstall a previous version to install a new version normally.
      Please, install software from official sources always.

      • Jimbo says:

        When I go to google play store to get 1.4.3, the only option is to Open, or Uninstall. I also downloaded the apk from here, but it will not install over the existing version. How do I tell which version I currently have installed? I’m pretty sure I have 1.4.2 installed.

        • nikman says:

          Go to System settings->Apps->Perfect Player

          • nikman says:

            Probably, previous version of the app was not installed from official sources (Google Play, Amazon appstore or official site).
            In this case, you’d need to uninstall the app before install a new official version.

            To keep settings you can use Settings->Defaults->Backup settings and then Settings->Defaults->Restore settings.

  3. David Hulme says:

  4. Andreas says:

    Hi, maybe off-topic but I’m having Big problems with the app crashing. Been using the app for months without this happening, but now it happens all the time.
    Noticed it for the first time today.
    Any advise ?

    • nikman says:

      1. When exactly this happens (at what action, etc.)?
      2. What is your device?
      3. What decoder is selected (Settings->Playback->Decoder)?

      • Andreas says:

        Ok, I’ll try to explain a bit more:
        I am using a Nvidia Shield Tv (2017).
        When I am in one folder, for instance ”Sweden”. I have no trouble changing channels.
        The app crashes when I am changing to a different folder.
        Let’s say I am watching a Swedish Channel and I want to watch a movie in the VOD.
        When I change to that folder, the app crashes.
        This have never happend before this past week.
        The decoder is set on Auto, but I have tried with Native, Hardware, Software and HW+. All with the same result.

        / Andreas

        • Alan says:

          I have exactly the same issue with my 2015 and 2017 16gb nvidia shield tv box, I have tried all the different decoders and they all result in perfect player crashing. It always happens when you move from folder to folder in the VOD section.

          I have no issues playing and moving around in the live tv channels.

          The previous version was fine but the new one doesnt work properly.

        • Alan says:

          Uninstalling and reinstalling the app has no effect either, VOD section stil crashes.

          I have been using your app for many months now. I paid for it to be unlocked too because it was so good. But this last update has crippled it.

  5. Andreas says:

    And the app also crashes when using fast forward. (On VOD)

  6. Alan says:

    The latest 1.4.3 update for perfect player crashes on the nvidia shield tv box 16gb version. Anytime i try and look in a VOD section, perfect player crashes and says Perfect Player has stopped. You can either open the app again or send feedback.

    I have sent feedback everytime it has crashed with my log files.

    Is there anyway i can get the previous version which worked fine?

  7. Andreas says:

    it is only the Perfect Player app that crashes on my Nvidia Shield.
    I tried the same playlist in Kodi on the same device, no problems there.

    Any update ?

    • Alan says:

      I have tested the 1.4.2 version of perfect player on 3 different nvidia shield tv’s and they dont crash. I do believe there is an issue with the 1.4.3 version only on the shield tv. My advice is to reload the previous version until it has been fixed.

  8. Shakra says:


    There are somes bugs

    With the standard decoder, when a stream has a sound bug, the stream stop or rollback. It does not happen with the material decoder.

    Another bug, with HW+ and a hd stream, it’s marked SD instead 720P or 1080P

  9. Beruang says:

    Playlist path support ftp access?

    • nikman says:

      Not yet.
      Also, there is the crash bug when entered ftp URL. You’ll need to clear app’s data in Settings->Apps->Perfect Player IPTV.
      Will be fixed.

  10. Pipi says:

    please I try to play local movies inside m3u list,
    mixed with udp streams. Is this possible in Perfect player (Android)?

    #EXTINF:-1 group-title=”NS1″ tvg-id=”2″ tvg-name=”2″ tvg-logo=”NS1.png”,NS1

    The udp link is recognised in Perfect player.
    But the movie file is not.
    Also if I put only /sdcard/DCIM/1.MP4
    in m3u file in Kodi is recognised and play normaly.

    • nikman says:

      It is not available now.
      However, you can access local video files when select “Files” item in sources window.

  11. Mario says:

    Audio ac3 not working
    update this bug

  12. Nakti says:

    Hi Nikman, If I have added favorites channels how can I sort them and move the channels so I can list them how I want them. Because when I have added all the channels I want to the favorite I can’t move them in the list on how I want them.

    • nikman says:

      Channels are sorted in favorites list as they are ordered in playlist.
      You can activate “Adaptive sorting” in context menu to place the most watched channels at the top of the list.

  13. jose says:

    First. Great work!!!

    I have a problem with EPG assign mode. I use a remote list m3u. When the m3u is update I lost the manual EPG assign mode. I think that program remember the manual EPG assign if the channel name no change on update.


    • nikman says:

      In “EPG assign mode” user links playlist channel name wth EPG channel name. Obviously, if playlist channel name changes it will lost EPG linking.

  14. Craig Evans says:

    Since Nvidia Shield update (6.2) Perfect Player now constantly crashes whilst scrolling through channel groups. I have re-installed Perfect Player and still the issue persists. Do you have any information on when this will be resolved or how I can resolve the problem?

  15. Andreas says:

    Can I somehow install the old version 1.4.2 when I already have the 1.4.3 installed?

    • nikman says:

      You can’t downgrade – you must uninstall a newer version first.
      Use Settings->Defaults->Backup/Restore settings options to transfer settings among versions.

      • Andreas says:

        Thnx for info, but this is way to complicated for me. Have no clue on what to Backup/Restore or even how to do it.

        Hoping that You professionals can come up with a quick solution.

    How to jump to another line on the destription tab so that the end results looks like this:

    Director: Guillermo del Toro
    Writers: Guillermo del Toro (screenplay by), Vanessa Taylor (screenplay by) | 1 more credit »
    Stars: Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, Michael Shannon

    An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

  17. paul anthony says:

    Hi great app is there any chance you could get any new skins available also when i go to all channels the app just closes then its quite slow starting again thanks.p

    • nikman says:

      Probably, new skins will be added later.

      Avoid entering into groups with huge number of channels (thousands) on devices with limited memory resources. Use groups and favorites features.

  18. Steve says:

    Do you think you could add the option of plugging epg info from top instead of from bottom to make it more compatible with some epg guide.xml files?

  19. Hector says:

    I have a question will there be sometime in perfect player time shift and recording?
    Thanks in advance

  20. Love says:

    Please upgrade codecs.. It takes very long time to play some streams. Thanks

  21. Rob says:

    Epg doesn’t seem to work on fire stick, channels work, can’t get archive either. I’m using version 1.4.3 and can’t find an apk or link to download the beta version.

  22. Love says:

    Hello, can you add option to time shift epg with half an hour interval… E.g +-1.5, 2.5…… Or to put desired value rather than selecting from pre defined drop down values… Thanks

  23. Andreas says:

    Is it possible to add more then one EPG-link?
    I now have added a link for the Swedish channels, but I would like to add links for US and UK aswell. Possible ?

  24. Bimbo says:
