MrMC is now available to install on the Amazon Fire TV Cube

An appstore mixup has been preventing customers from installing MrMC on the Amazon Fire TV Cube. It turns out that when Amazon’s automated system marked MrMC as compatible with the Fire TV Cube, it incorrectly chose the 64-bit version of the app as the one to use for the new device. Since the Fire TV Cube is running a 32-bit operating system, MrMC became incompatible. The mixup has now been resolved and MrMC is available for the Fire TV Cube. One commenter noted that the Fire TV Cube was asking them to purchase MrMC, even though they already bought it previously. That wasn’t the case for me. If that happens to you, try going to the Fire TV Cube’s settings area and select “Sync Amazon Content” from the “My Account” menu on the far right. You could also try clearing the “Appstore” data and cache under the Applications > Manage menu.

MrMC update v3.1 adds an all-new Skin and a Free Lite version of the app to try

MrMC, the media center that is created and supported by the developers who first ported Kodi to Android, just released version 3.1 of their app. The main new feature of this version is a completely new skin for the app, made from the ground up by the app’s developers. This update also adds several bug fixes, as most of their updates tend to do, with this latest set of fixes related mostly to Plex, Emby, and EDL support in the app.

In addition to the new skin and update, MrMC is now also being made available in two flavors. The full version is still $2.99, but there is now a MrMC Lite version that is free. The Lite version has the same player functionality as the full version, except it’s missing Divx codec playback and limits library lists to 8 items. Most people are definitely going to want to use the full version long term, but the Lite version gives you a way to try the app before committing to buying it, which is always great to see.

Fire TV update 5.2.4.1 causing poor 24p video playback in MrMC, Kodi, and SPMC

If your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick has received the 5.2.4.1 software update, you may be experiencing poor video playback within MrMC, Kodi, and SPMC. The developer of MrMC has emailed me letting me know that the updated version of Fire OS does not handle switching the video output to a 24Hz refresh rate correctly. This is a feature videophiles use to achieve perfect 1-to-1 synchronization between the frames in a video and the rate at which the display updates, but with software version 5.2.4.1, it results in jerky stuttering video.

MrMC v3.0 adds support for Kodi 17 databases, full DVD playback, Plex transcoding, and more

MrMC has just released their version 3.0 update with several nice new features. For starters, now that Kodi 17 has finally been released, MrMC’s developers made sure to make this new version compatible with Kodi’s recent database changes. This means you can have both apps use the same database, if you need to switch from one app to the other, without having to maintain two databases. While MrMC does still uses a skin based on Kodi’s old interface, don’t let that detract you, because under the hood, it has long been incorporating Kodi 17 into its code base, even before Kodi 17 was officially released.
