Re: MO 4Media - remote control and player with Android TV & Android Auto support
« Reply #1050 on: February 22, 2024, 03:42:50 pm »

When using the Android app, I often get silence when next track starts playing. I can see track playing, but no audio. Pausing and unpausing the player sometimes fixes it, and I start to hear the audio, but not always. Forwarding to the next track or restarting the current track pretty much always fixes the problem.

Any ideas? I'm currently on MP3 Low conversion for mobile audio. I'm gonna try downloading some audio to see if behaves any differently. 

Thanks!

Hi Craig,
Is the 'max number of list items' a total limit (e. g., display only the first n choices, with no way to view any items further down in the list), or is it a max items per retrieval (e.g., display the first n albums, and then click a 'Next n' button to retrieve the next scrollable set of items?

I really hope it's the latter, because even if I manually add a first-letter selection level into each category (album, artist, genre, etc.) I'm sure there would still be too many items to scroll.

I have to think that I'm not alone, and that many people using MO 4Media with Android Auto would hit the same scrolling problems with larger music libraries. Would it be possible to add a feature to MO 4Media to automatically paginate long picklists when used with AA? (Ideally, there would also be an option to automatically display a horizontal first-letter picklist, only in AA...)

Thanks!

Thanks for adding the Android TV features in the newest beta, works nicely now!

Though, the big leftover issue is all the crashing issues I have on multiple devices (Motorola Edge+ 2023, TCL Q7 55Q750G with Google TV, Nvidia Shield TV 2017, RockTek G2, Onn 4K Streaming Box, Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus tablet, etc.), with full app crashes when using Exo and semi-soft crashes (server disconnects) when using Android System. I was hoping when I created a new MC server (and left all settings default) it would stop, but alas it didn't. Anyways, I did get adb and logcat up and running (on my Motorola Edge+ 2023 running Android 14) and have been using them to log the crashes when playing back audio and rapidly switching tracks when using Exo and it's been getting some interesting data. Here's a tidbit of the end of the logcat log when using Exo and rapidly changing tracks and a full app crash occurs...

Here's a tidbit of the end when using Android System when rapidly switching tracks, the app disconnects from the server however it doesn't fully crash (I guess you could call it a soft crash)...

Anything here that can be used to find what in the world is causing the crashes/disconnects when using both Exo and Android System?

When using the Android app, I often get silence when next track starts playing. I can see track playing, but no audio. Pausing and unpausing the player sometimes fixes it, and I start to hear the audio, but not always. Forwarding to the next track or restarting the current track pretty much always fixes the problem.

This has happened to me before, but so rarely that I chalked it up to a bluetooth issue.

Is the 'max number of list items' a total limit (e. g., display only the first n choices, with no way to view any items further down in the list), or is it a max items per retrieval (e.g., display the first n albums, and then click a 'Next n' button to retrieve the next scrollable set of items?

Unfortunately it is a total limit due to memory use that I have not found a workaround for.  If you can keep the lists under 500 items, that should work for most phones.

I will take a look and see if I can figure anything out.  At first glance, the logs don't seem to reveal anything.

Hahaha, touché. Actually, pressing the next button just makes it happen faster. If I start a playlist, eventually it'll do it by itself on a track change.

Alternately, I should be getting symmetrical 1 gig fiber in my area soon. Once I do (and before I upgrade my network again, which is the next thing I'm going to try once it's available) my upload speed should be fast enough to just give you access to my server via access key and let you have a go at the rapid track changing. :P

When Exo is selected as the audio player audio playback stops a few seconds after the screen is shut off or the app is put in the background. This does not happen when Android system is selected. If there's a switch or setting to prevent this I haven't found it.

1) MO 4Media has been connecting to my Win11 PC server just fine until today.  Now when I try to connect I get the error message "The access key was not found".

The access key is current and I've re-entered it in MO 4Media.
Rebooted the computer.
Restarted the Android phone.

2) Gizmo fails from same phone with current access key, with message "There was a problem connecting to the server.  Please double-check that you have entered the correct key, and ..."

3) MC Panel connects with current access key

4) JRemote2 connects with prior access key!

5) A MC PC client connects to same server with current access key.

Pretty weird stuff.

Note:  there was a Win11 Microsoft update earlier today for the PC server.  Nothing else has changed that I know of.

[FIXED: SEE MY REPLY #1060 BELOW RE JRiver SERVER DOWN.]

I am having the same issue.
Restarted modem access point, mobile phone (with gizmo app), and PC (with media centre)
https://jriver.com/webgizmo.html retuns this error
"Exception raised: no implicit conversion of nil into String (TypeError)"
Started today. I don't recall any Windows updates and nothing has changed on my phone that I am aware of.

See about JRiver's access server being down:  https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,138316.0.html

All apps working for me as of now.   :)

Note:  JRemote2 still shows the previous old Access Key in its Edit Server window.  It also shows Username and Password Authentication, so maybe that overrides the "expired" Access Key, while the latter probably still provides correct network identification of the server (?) since I use fixed IP addresses.  Just a guess.

Have you turned off battery optimization for the app?

Yes, MO 4Media is set to Unrestricted battery use. If there's a way to configure battery permissions for the exo player I haven't figured it out.

Hi cncb,

is it possible that you can show us the Subtitle names when we select a subtitle. We only read the type of code and the language, but NOT the name. So we see only "SRT, de" for exapmle (Germany txt Subtitle) but not the name of the subtitle like German (forced) , English (forced), English full etc.

It would be great if you can implement this, so it's easier to select the right subtitle.

Greetings

I will take a look, but I am pretty sure that I am displaying whatever the player gives me for a name.

Thanks for the update, but I can not see any changes to the Subtitle names.
Everything like before. No "Description" of the Subtitel.

It's great to see MO 4Media as an app on Chromecast with Google TV. I understand these are early stages so I'm not complaining at all, just reporting some issues.
  • Playback stops after one or a few tracks
  • The now playing screen info doesn't change when the track changes
  • Very often the time remaining info on the top right is --:--

Actually, the Android TV interface has been available for quite a while.  I haven't seen these issues reported before.  Maybe there is some incompatabilities with new versions of "Google TV"?

The device is 2m from an eero 6+ access point. No issues with Spotify or any other streaming service like Netflix. Chromecast has the latest updates, MC server is version 32.0.32 and is cabled to the main eero's gigabit Ethernet port. Tried again with a 44/16 FLAC album. It plays one track, then the next track but doesn't change the screen display. It stops after the second track. If I advance to the third track and hit play the same thing happens (plays 3, plays 4 with no screen update, stops). This was happening when the Chromecast screensaver was enabled (but it did not correlate with the screen saver kicking in). The only way to disable the screensaver is to put the Chromecast in developer mode, which I have done, but that hasn't affected the play two and stop issue.

Hi,

I noticed a fault in MO4Media with mkv containers.
When I have a mkv container with more than 1 video stream and the main video has the flag "standard and active" and the second one
only the flag "active" MO4MEDIA plays the video with the "active" flag and not the one with "active and standard" flag video.

For example:
1. Video in mkv Movie "A with 3840 x 2160" and flag "active & standard"
2. Video in mkv Movie "B with 1920 x 1080" and "flag "active"

MO4Media play No. 2! That's wrong. MO4Media should play No. 1 , because the flags are right selected within the container.

MO4MEDIA plays video 2 with 1920 x 1080 and not the 3840 x 2160.
There is also no way to select the right video stream that I want to play.

When the MKV container contains two movies (the movies have the same fps and used the same soundfiles), I only see [1] in the selection (when I push the 3 pots ... ).
I have no option to change the video stream, like I can do this in the sound or subtitel section.
MO4MEdia shows only a [1] as video streams, but the mkv contains [2] video streams.

And the next one: When stream 2 is completely disabled (no flag "actice" and no flag "standard") MO4Media plays the stream 2 also and not stream 1. (see screenshot)

Could you please share a small sample so I can test this?  Maybe on Google Drive or similar?

It seems that ExoPlayer is only detecting 1 video track in this case.  If you are sure that no video conversion is being done for playback (check video conversion settings in MO), please also share a small sample file of this for me to try.

Try choosing an album with a lot of songs and start at the beginning. Wait a few seconds and let the track play a bit and then press next, then wait a few seconds again and press it again then repeating. Usually for me it happens pretty quickly, within 20 track changes. Thankfully fiber should be available within the next two months, and once it is access to my music library for testing this will be quite possible. :)

I wish I got 20 tracks before it stops.  I get exactly 7 and have always gotten exactly 7, either playing the tracks or bashing next track when streaming to device in Mo4Media.
This is on a fiber connection, too.

It's usually around 7 give or take a few, yeah. I just said 20 so there's enough tracks to switch every few seconds but it definitely happens for me under 10 tracks. What does it do for you? Does it disconnect from the server? Does it crash? Exo or Android System being used?

Most of the time just a server disconnect.  Occasionally a crash.  Happens with both Exo and Android system players.

Interesting. Does it crash when you mainly use Exo? If so, if you use Android System does it mainly disconnect?

In my testing it'll crash the entire app if using Exo, but if I use Android System it'll just disconnect from the server without crashing.
