Roku Media Player 4.1.1579 released

Main changes.
Support for .pls playlist files.
Autorun.m3u at the top level of a usb drive will automatically start playback when inserted or RMP launched. (This new feature can be turned off in the settings screen)
A new "Settings" icon, pressing "*" on the Help icon no longer launches Settings.
.vtt subtitles support added (like .srt files)
ps3 dlna server better supported
playing a folder of mixed media now plays all the different media.
RMP was not recognizing some 4k content as playable on later model Rokus.

For DLNA experts only:
You can now modify the USERAGENT that RMP sends to the dlna server. Some dlna servers use USERAGENT to determine the supported codecs and how to transcode for the Roku. To get to this press '*" on the media server icon.

I wish it would go back to showing .mov files from our iphone and ipad devices right side up.
Also would be nice if it would again show a pic from the video as the icon instead of the generic video icon for every video file.

Photos should be sorted by date with the "default" sort and filtertype is photos.

Re: Roku Media Player 4.1.1578 released

Is there any way they can make portrait videos from an iphone or ipad play right side up again? There was talk a while back about them maybe adding an option for this. 
Would I be able to change the Useragent to accomplish this and if so what would I type in?
Does the useragent default back to the Roku entry like it is now when you exit the player or will it keep whatever you type in?

I want sort by date for videos. I'd like to be able to quickly see the most recently added ones. RMP knows the dates - they're shown in the bubble when navigating through them. But the only sort option is alpha or reverse-alpha.
4.1.1579, so I assume there was an even newer update.

Depending on your DLNA server software, you may have the ability to have a Last Added view. Serviio provides that.

Re: Roku Media Player 4.1.1578 released

For DLNA, default sort is done by the server. RMP presents them in the order the dlna server provides. Alpha sort overrides that and RMP resorts them locally. See if there is a setting on your slna server to change it's sorting method.
