Re: The horrible new Roku Media Player update is back
You guys are lucky. I have over 18,000 songs on a NFS and all the program does is take 5 minutes to scan all the file names and then crashes spectacularly leaving me back at the Roku Home Screen.
It won't even play a song unless I select a particular album or artist from the menu items. Screw that. I ripped 2000 CDs so I wouldn't have to shuffle disks back and forth. This is the MP3 equivalent of having to swap disks one at a a time.
Have the Roku programmers never heard of a binary search tree or a linked list? Do they even know how a pointer works?
All the whizbang stupid graphics suck up memory and resources and don't allow the program to fulfill its function.
But even the List view has been changed for the worse. The list is squeezed over to the right half of the screen and you can no longer see full file names. For TV shows with long names, I get "..." before the episode number. And there's no 'selected filename' display anywhere else on the screen.
Who at Roku thought this was an improvement? This is maddening... What happened to the alternative media player that was much better? Did Roku absorb it and turn it into this? Ugh.
