Windows Store app vs Windows desktop app?

theatre app desktop

Very definitive, and what I assumed - why though?


The store app uses the windows player, which is limited in what it supports and can do. The desktop app uses MPV as it's player, which can play almost anything. Go to the full post

Just curious - I am running windows 10 on my htpc for Emby server. I use the desktop app for theatre. Is there any reason to use the Windows Store App over Desktop or vice versa? (my gut feeling is to avoid windows store at all costs - hence I am using desktop)...

The desktop app is the best option.

Ah, didn't appreciate that - glad I asked then and glad I am using the Desktop App!
