    Insane to me that they still have only addressed one single complaint and continue to ignore the MAJOR problems that make this app almost unusable for most everyone. The buffering in VoDs is BROKEN, it DOESN'T WORK. The functionality before, when VoDs worked properly, was that if the video had to buffer it would continue at the point that the video paused to buffer. The incompetent lazy out of touch moronic programmer for the new version of this app instead just copy pasted the player for live broadcasts it seems, meaning that when a video buffers, it doesn't pause the video clock at all, it will skip the entire duration of video you were waiting (OR MORE, MUCH MORE). Absolutely astounding that they would PAY someone to replace their functioning app with this functionless featureless garbage, what a waste of money. They could easily have just... not done that and probably saved all that money they were scammed out of by whatever work for hire they used. This should embarrass Amazon, this makes them look clueless and incompetent.

    Watching vods is a nightmare in the new app, it freezes to buffer constantly and skips ahead by large chunks each time forcing me to miss half the stream unless I set it to 720p, and because quality always defaults to auto instead of remembering my preference like before, and it's so laggy and slow to actually navigate to the quality settings, it adds so many extra obstacles just to watch anything. It's a pain to even find vods compared to the previous version, too. It used to actually be MORE convenient than other apps to continue watching vods on fire tv because it'd show you vods you hadn't finished watching on the main page as soon as you open it, too, and for no good reason they cut out the chat replay. On top of all of that, after a while of watching it suddenly throws up an error and refuses to play any stream or vod at all until I restart my whole fire tv device. Literally unwatchable, this update is a disaster.
