I see no progress on this ticket - I now added my post to it.
For me this is a high priority issue, so why was it entered as
	Priority: 	minor
	Severity: 	medium

I seem to not be able to change this. Maybe I should open a new ticket - my files are original (not transcoded).

Are other users able to play back old .nuv files, or is everyone too young to have any?
