  • (2019-07-10) Kal Ross: Freezes Kodi 18 50% of time. Un-usable.
  • (2017-07-28) the modfather: Doesn't work at all. Waste of time. No logs or error messages, just nothing happens.
  • (2016-10-10) Sebastian Unglaublich: It works, but it is possible to add flash video support?
  • (2016-04-13) konsumer: This extension is so awesome that I named my first born son PlayThis, in honor of such epic scripting.
