Here are the settings of the app:

  • Select player – Select from internal, VLC, MX Player and MX Player Pro. We recommend using MX Player.
  • Select pre buffer – Select the size of the pre-buffer. A larger buffer prevents buffering but increases the loading time of the media. In most cases, 50 should be the best option.
  • Select pre buffer before playing – Open a dialog to choose the size of the pre-buffer before playing the media
  • Select player before playing – Open a dialog to choose the player before playing the media

Tips about using TMP efficiently:

  • Join groups and channels in Telegram that contain media files like movies and TV shows. Those groups and channels will appear automatically in TMP
  • Create a private channel in Telegram and forward messages containing media to this channel. This way, this channel will act as your media library
  • Create folders in Telegram, each one representing a category, and place groups and channels there accordingly
  • The search on the main page searches for groups and channels. The search inside groups and channels searches for files inside of them
  • The following media formats are supported: MKV, MP4, AVI, MP3

How to create a new folder on Telegram:

  • Click on the hamburger menu (the three lines at the upper left corner)

For Israeli audience, we recommend using a Telegram media bot. It will help you search for movies and series and get a direct link to them. For example, you can type in the bot: נמלטים עונה 3 פרק 8. The username of the bot in Telegram is: @searchindexbot

There are also special channels for the Israeli audience with images for the movies (if you don’t see the images, get out of the channel and get in again) and build-in Hebrew subtitles for foreign movies:

That’s all, now you can use the TMP app. Enjoy it!
