As others have stated PlayOn desktop update removed and replaced with PlayOn home requiring a monthly fee. I purchased a lifetime subscription which has been dishonoured. This company is not to be trusted. Thoroughly pissed off.

I purchased a lifetime PlayOn subscription. I could no longer record shows and saw an "update" was available. Installed the update. Noticed it now said Play on Home after the install. I tried to record a show and got a message that I need to subscribe to PlayOn Home for that to work. This is very deceptive and not a company to be trusted. I am done with them forever.

This was PlayOn Desktop. They are no longer supporting PlayOn Desktop and are attempting to get lifetime license holders to start subscribing to PlayOn Home.

Version 5.0 is not Playon Desktop, it is called Playon Home and a monthly subscription service. And still limited to SD and 720p as it was when I bought a lifetime license for the Desktop software in 2013.
Playon Desktop is no longer supported per the website. It does not run on Win11, but does on Win10 and Win8.1
Playon Cloud is a 1080P screen recorder, using purchased credits. It only runs on Android and IOS. There is a separate program, Playon Cloud Downloader, that can download videos from the cloud recordings to a computer.

In my opinion, Playon Desktop is a dead horse.....

Not supported on Windows 11, which will be released October 5th. Won't play back already recorded/downloaded videos via Windows 11 using "Playon server" and "Mymedia" on Roku. Consider using other downloading software or screen recording software. Use Plex to stream over your home LAN. Audials for recording screen captures, Plex for streaming to your set top box. I have a usb dongle recording via hdmi in 1080p using a Roku 3, works perfectly for captures. Sorry Playon, you're falling behind. Can only rate it poorly as of September 14th 2021
