MO 4Media - remote control and player (Windows 10, UWP)
« on: January 28, 2019, 01:32:51 pm »

This is the Windows/UWP app version of MO 4Media.  It is like the Android version but is remote control and device audio and basic video playback only (no casting or downloads).  I am only able to test it on a Windows 10 PC.  The ARM version is included in the bundle but I don't know if it will work or install on these devices.  It is free to use.  I don't currently plan to add any more to this version of the app or put it in the Windows Store.

Download from Google Drive (the 39MB file is too big for an attachment to this post)

To install/sideload on a Windows 10 PC:
1- Go to Windows Settings | Update & Security | For Developers and make sure Sideload apps is selected
2- Unzip downloaded file, open Explorer and navigate to unzipped directory
3- Right-click .cer file, select Install Certificate
4- Select Local Machine, Next
5- Select Place all certificates in the following store
6- Select Browse and select Trusted Root Certification Authorities
7- Select Next and then Finish to install certificate
8- Double-click .appxbundle file to install app

If you want to connect to MC on the same PC, run the following at the command prompt (Admin privileges required):
Code: [Select]
CheckNetIsolation LoopbackExempt -a -n="4f262a20-6acc-418e-b408-19e37e39d071_m9xqadxmj9t0r"
Notes:
- If connected via ethernet, the "Mobile" conversion settings are used.
- The cover art is not displayed in the media control popup that is shown when you use the media keys on your keyboard (not sure why since I think I am specifying it correctly)

Seems to work. I have an old Windows Mobile that I might try this on at some time.

I have the latest version running on my surface. It was easy to install and running great. Thank you.

I tried to install on my Lumia 950 XL but had no luck. Certificate installed fine. When installing the app I was prompted to install, I selected Yes, but then nothing happened. Just sharing the info, I'm not super concerned about it not running on my phone as I will be buying a new Android tablet soon for the sole purpose of being a remote for MC. I am happy to test more if it helps though.

Thanks for the report.  I got rid of my Windows phones a while ago so I can't troubleshoot.  Sorry, I don't plan to spend any time on getting it working for Windows 10 Mobile especially since they are dropping support for it soon.

Works as advertised!

No real complaints, one suggestion may be to have bigger thumbnails, even on large they are a bit small, on MC std view I have it set to 5 across

Iíll keep using when I use my Win 10 tablet , along with JRemote on iOS

Not to be rude, I do prefer the look and feel of JRemote, maybe familiarity but itís cleaner and more varied in colors ec

Click the link in the first post that takes you to the external ge.tt site.  On that page click the "Download MO4media_UWP.zip" link in the middle of the page.

If there's nothing in your downloads folder on your PC, then something in the browser must be blocking it.  The downloads count on the website has increased by a lot today, suggesting that the downloads are happening.

It's an http link, so not secure.  Maybe something doesn't like that.

Thank you for creating and updating the windows version. It's great to have.

Something I have been recently trying is to use Panel and MO 4Media as a touch screen interface for MC running on the same PC.
With MO 4Media this works if I am connected to a network and I use localhost:52199. I can't get it to connect using an access key or if I am not connected to a network. Panel on the other hand works fine when not connected to a network using localhost:52199 or 127.0.0.1:52199.

Is using MO 4Media without a network connection possible?

Thanks

Did you run the "CheckNetIsolation" command at the command prompt as described in the first post?

Edit:  Nevermind, I understand now that it is just without a network connection when it is not working.  I will look into it

I uploaded a new version (v1.2.1) that should allow you to connect to the localhost when no network connection is available.  Note that the access key will not work if you have no network connection because it will not be able to contact the JRiver servers.

I installed the certificate as instructed, but upon attempting installation, I still get the following error:


Code: [Select]
Either a new certificate must be installed for this app package or you need a new app package with trusted certificates. Your system administrator or the app developer can help. A certificate chain was processed but terminated in a root certificate that isn't trusted (0x800B0109)
What do?

Sorry, not sure why you are getting that.  Make sure you are running an account with administrator access and you have enabled sideloading properly.

This is a great little app!  Already a happy customer of the Android App.  I have my main JRiver on an HTPC that is piped thru my whole house audio setup and the windows app is great in 2 rooms where I basically use it to manipulate the Playing Now on the HTPC.
Thanks for this!

I uploaded a new version (v1.3.0) that includes the recent Android changes including playlist editing.  I also added basic local video playback.  Note that you need to disable conversion for video ("Mobile Video" if you are using ethernet) if you want to be able to seek although you might not hear audio depending on the codec (e.g. DTS).

I'm using MO 4Media on Android and iOs, love it but can't install on Windows 10. Every time I try, I get a message that the certificate has expired. is it possible to add an updated certificate? Is there a work-around?

Please try again with the new version uploaded to Google Drive.  This is v1.4.0 which includes an updated certificate and the ability to have multiple "device" zones.  Anyone updating from an older version will have to install the new certificate as described in the first post.

Thanks for this, I really appreciate it. I have a tablet that I keep windows on instead of Linux basically just to use your app.
