I just plunked my money down but before I install the new version on my Windows x64 do I run the risk of messing up my current setup?  If so, what should I do in case I need to recover from a failed upgrade?
Just install MC24 and restore your MC25 license.

From the license page:
If you previously purchased MC for Mac or Windows, and it is installed and licensed, you will see a reduced price when you purchase a Master License.

I purchased the MC25 license and tried to apply the .mjr file to two of my PCs on which MC24 newest version worked. 
I did it correctly on the first one, but could not do on the second one. 
The message I came across said "The license file is for different version." 
The actual message was in Japanese, and it might not be exactly correct. 
A strange phenomenon was that the MC24 windows open in a very small size, not the same size as that in its previous run.
Shall I uninstall MC24 first? 
I do not want to do so because I have made several customization.

Thank you in advance.

I always tell myself the current version of JRiver MC is all that I will need and then I go ahead and purchase the newer version  :o  Your "will" is very powerful  ;D  Keep up the good work!

Try updating MC24.  Only the most recent builds will honor an MC25 license.

Most Windows changes also affect Mac versions.


Yes, but there's been lots of Windows-only features (e.g. TV stuff) but what Mac-specific features in MC24?  How hard is it to implement full-screen?  And get most MacOS keyboard shortcuts to work when editing tags?

Hi,
I just read through this thread. Maybe I'm a hopeless fanboy but I don't know anything else that let's me manage 200k of files as efficiently as this. JRiver has accommodated all, of my decades long obsession, with storing music. When  I moved to a slow NAS they made the ASIO buffering work for some of my HUGE DSD files to play through my DAC's without a whimper. I tried ROON and a couple of others and none of them did it for me.

I upgraded to MC 25 for the discount without a thought.

 I have one question, how to i get rid of the "nag" screen that continues to offer me the discount desipite my installation of MC license key.

It would be great to update us on the possible features of JRiver Media Center 25 before we decide if we want to upgrade from the previous versions or not.

Sorry if I have missed the answer to this, but can someone direct me?

My first thought on getting the email about the upgrade to MC25 was, 'what is the difference?'. I've tried looking but can't find anything that shows screen shots, or lists changes.

Other users seem to be asking the same questions.

Does anyone know where you can find details on MC25?.

Hi JimH,

Yes, but I have already done it.  Both PCs have the same newest version, 24.0.72. 
Maybe some old versions, MC23, MC22, etc., still installed on them, cause the trouble. 
Shall I uninstall all old versions?

thank you for your reply
I did what you wrote. but with a crtl-J, I still get the same message: "you can now pre-order MC25, etc.
the only "novelty" I upgraded to MC 24 24.0.74
not clear ...
I understood the prepayment of this version mc25, available in a few months ... but I would like to understand the subtlety of the update now?
little interest to upgrade from version 24.0.72 to version 24.0.74

sorry for my frankness

I have been upgrading MC for years. All I really want is for it to scrape relevant information for TV and movie files automatically. It says it does it but it is highly unreliable. For intstance, "Last Man Standing", a very popular and current US sitcom, populates with information about a BBC unreality show from a decade ago.

Also, about once a month, starting MC triggers a new installation populated with the old Van Gogh paintings. I love Van Gogh, but not as a background.

I would like to remove many of the theater mode menu items but cannot. For instance, under the submenu "Audio", I would like to have Pandora, Spotify and  Amazon Music but it appears all I may have is my own music collection. Annoying.

Are any of these fixed in 25 without me needing to geek-out?

In update of Media Center 24 was made a change:

24.0.59 (10/24/2018)

1. Changed: When viewing a playlist group, the files will be ordered according to the child playlists (instead of all lumped together). Just set the view to have no sorting and it will show the playlist order.
2. Changed: Made the default sorting for a playlist group no sorting so it just shows the child playlists in order.

So, by clicking the group icon you are basically saying show me everything in each of the playlists in this grouping - thus you will see the same file duplicated if it is in more than one of the playlists in that group.

We use player for live performance of the band.
We have Playlist grup of all songs. In this group are playlists for different occasions (wedding, birthday,..jazz, rock,..). So in group view, you can se one file in five, six.. lines…

It si very inconveniant. Player became almost useless for use.

I would like to buy new version (we are buying new versions for more than 10 years), but if it will stay like this, we will have to use Version 23...

Is it possible to make this view as OPTION in settings? If so, we are in!

Regards,

Tomaz

Sure thing.  Next build of MC25:
Changed: Added the option to "Show playlist groups as collection" to Options > General > Advanced to show the collection of files instead of the individual sum of all the files.

I have a MC24 Master license; but I have purchased a Windows MC25 upgrade as my Macbook died - now I have a Windows 7 PC and a new Windows 10 laptop.

After purchasing I stumbled on "problems" on the Help page saying I cannot upgrade from a Master license to a Windows only license.  What do you suggest?

Media Center 25 isn't available yet (and likely won't be for a couple more months). But the license works in the latest builds of Media Center 24.

Yes, it is understood that MC25 is not available for several months... In fact we bought a license MC25, applied on a version of MC24, for which, we had already bought the license in 2018.... Interesting the concept of marketing..

Jim;
Regarding the update nag screen...

"Turn off Check for Updates in the Help Menu." is not the answer for me.

I don't recall the nag screen problem (once registered for the upcoming version) on any of the prior versions of MC (or am I just dreaming ?).

Can someone come up with a real fix for this problem?

Benefits of upgrading to MC25?
« Reply #134 on: January 26, 2019, 05:45:51 am »

I currently use my JRiver MC v21  :o to 'drive the music on my NAS to my SoTM sMS 200 ultra streamer.  I run my system in this configuration to eliminate EMI (or at least part of it) that is generated by my PC that's running JRiver MC. I can hear a fair improvement in sound quality as a result but the flip-side is that I may missing out on some of the features that MC offers.  So I am wondering what additional features and improvements could I benefit from if I upgrade to v25, in my setup?

This Question is for JRiver MC management.

I use your MC player actually your free one Jukebox right now am seriously thinking about purchasing MC version ,I  have been in a band for 30 yrs and do some Djing on the side and i use your media player because it by far sounds the best, i am a sound guy, i know good sound.

I was wondering if you were ever considering adding features or planning on making a player that is more Dj friendly. I know there are other players out there but i love your DSP's they are the best , although your graphic EQ could be beefed up more meaning add more frequencies to it.

What i have a hard time with and i am no expert using this player or all of its features, Is when you make a list and you want to switch around songs here and there to keep things moving on the dance floor etc., it will not let you go out of the original order when you move a track up or down in that previously made list and get it to play next unless you manually click on it and you have to have good timing or sometimes it doesnt take right away and starts playing the original song that was in that numbered spot so as a Dj doing a event you can imagine how that goes.

Unless there is some way to make it do it that i don not know about. Also it would be nice to be able to pull up 2 players at the same time  or have the ability set up like a  double Dj controller where you can fade from one side to the other, i personally am not looking for the mixing controls ect where you can scratch and sample ect. Like i said i use it and deal with it because of the quality of the sound i can produce with your player and DSP features that are quality audiophile grade. I can make ok speakers sound very good with them . Your product is outstanding and i am planing on making use of other features such as the video media when i start using TV monitors for events. Thanks in advance for your reply

Welcome to the forum.

Try using zones (please see the wiki).  You can use one for trying tracks and another for playing.  Ctrl-T toggles between zones.

seems most of the current (and future?) work revolves around video, radio, and music server features and fixes that I am sure some people have a use for but not me.  There are a few long long time bugs especially on the Mac platform that I wish they would squash.  To be honest I am really not sure why I upgrade each year but I guess I am just always hoping something good gets added or fixed.

The notification is part of the Automatic Update Channels. You can Disable Automatic Update in Tools > Startup > Update Channels. You can still manually check for updates using Ctrl + J. However, this will then trigger the message about a new version if there is no update available for MC24. When manually checking, I believe it still uses your choice of Stable or Latest.

Hmmm....guess I'll be passing then since no response. It just seems ridiculous to automatically upgrade each time when the benefits are like a grab bag. You never know what you're getting until you grab it :^ /

Hello, so I am currently still using MC 20. Have there been any upgrades in regards to sound quality output since or any other massive features that would warrant the upgrade? I don't have any bugs or crashes atm so just trying to see if there's even 1% audio improvements to justify an upgrade.
