It only happened when moving the entire /sdcard/Android/data/tv.mrmc.mrmc/files/ files to SD card, the video would freeze momentarily while the audio played on normally, this does not happen when only moving the thumbnalis directory to SD card.
Say more, on startup, while playing etc ? Once the video gets rolling, the only thing that might happen is a periodic save to the database of where the video is at (for resuming).

It happens all during the video playback every minuet or so, as I said this is only when the entire .mrcm folder is moved to SD card, this also occurred when when Kodi was configured the same way with a slower SD card. There is a little storage savings with moving the entire .mrcm directory to SD card (1.5Gb) over just the thumbnails (1.3Gb). See http://www.aftvnews.com/how-to-partiall ... #more-6073 for the details, See Cons for moving all data to SD...

Couldn't agree more.

MrMC is going to need something other then Dim & black screen.

Is this another vote for Picture screen saver ?

A big yes :D

All and all MrMC is a very fine product and the team is to be commended for all there efforts. I'm sure a few enhancements that will not violate the spirit of NO Addons will be forth coming :)

Sorry to bump an old thread.. but I just wanted to make sure...

I have Kodi 16.1 and SPMC 16.5 installed on my Fire TV (2nd gen), and have moved them to SD card. Of course using xbmc_env.properties and SPMC_env.properties respectively... along with their paths of org.xbmc.kodi and com.semperpax.spmc16

For moving MrMC to SD I can use the same process I did for Kodi, but instead of using xbmc_env.properties, I use mrmc_env.properties and substitute tv.mrmc.mrmc in place of org.xbmc.kodi and it will work, and keep them separate?

I'd love to have the picture screensaver feature added.

Thanks!
