It should definitely be showing permissions, to access the network among other things. Although that's not a permission you actually have to confirm, it's automatically given to any app that wants it.

Maybe not on Android 10?  My phone just updated last week.  It's a Note 10.

It should definitely be showing permissions, to access the network among other things. Although that's not a permission you actually have to confirm, it's automatically given to any app that wants it.
There is a second screen where it appears that network access is permitted.  It's not very clear.  It says this:

have full network access
view network connections
prevent phone from  sleeping
run foreground service

but there are no checkboxes or sliders to allow me to change anything.  Looking at permissions on the same screen for gmail, there are a number of permissions.  None show a checkbox or slider, so they appear to all be enabled for gmail.

Are you trying to use a secure connection? If so, What happens if you turn that off?

Also someone else said they had to have read-only library access enabled, but I couldn't reproduce any such behavior on my end.

It works on Brad's phone, running Android 9, connecting to my server.

It doesn't work on Matt's phone, which is also running Android 10.

I use Android 10 in the emulator, and that works fine, but I don't have a device with it.

Someone could try to get access to the logs, but unfortunately thats not quite straight forward

Matt and Brad should have Android development setup already, shouldn't they? They could probably fetch a log from an affected phone.

I found one hint in the network library i'm using, so I pushed a quick test to our internal test version, I think you should still be on that.

I'm getting Error Connecting to Server when I first start.

I saw this recently after doing a lot of testing and mucking around with Gizmo and servers. I couldn't blame JRemote2 specifically. It didn't crash, just sat there trying to connect forever, or gave a connection error. I may have changed the Authentication Username and Password, so that could have been the cause. Could be unrelated. When it happened I didn't have JRemote 2.0.8 of course. It sounds like you found the issue anyway, reading further.

Clearing the App Data fixed the original issue for me.

One anomaly I found when I couldn't connect to any server was that JRemote2 landed on the server selection page, the one with the WOL link, and the hamburger menu didn't work on that page. So I couldn't get to the "My Servers" page via that menu. I did (just now, after updating to JRemote 2.0.8) discover that I could get to the slide-out drawer using the Android back button, which showed the "My Servers" link, but that link didn't do anything. I just went to Settings, backed out of there, and then used the back button again and the slide-out drawer displayed with no content.

Just restarted JRemote 2.0.8 with no servers running, connection failed of course. Hamburger menu still doesn't work. Settings menu worked, so I turned off "Autoconnect to last server". That still left me unable to get to the servers page where I could edit the Username and Password to get JRemote 2.0.8 to connect.

So currently, if a user changes the Authentication (insecure) Username and Password on the server, they will need to clear the App Data in order to connect again. Or add a duplicate server record I guess, as that function is available on the server selection page. But there is no server delete function yet, so that would be annoying.

You are not supposed to be able to open the drawer if you are not connected. The page it puts you on is the server management page, just that it replaces EDIT with WOL when you are not connected yet. Which indeed you have found a case for which this is not ideal.

I could just always put EDIT there, and move WOL to a long-click menu. I reckon WOL is not that commonly used anyway.

I kind of like the WOL there. Quick access to wake and then connect to a server. Is it working now? I should test... Nope. Doesn't wake my HTPC.

I would maybe reverse your suggestion and put the Edit on a long press, or squeeze it in next to the WOL, maybe tapping the JRiver icon. Because I would use WOL often for my HTPC, but edit a server very rarely. Of course the other option is to make WOL run automatically, maybe if flagged to do so in server settings, and then the EDIT link could always be visible.

4. NEW: Improved Fast Scrolling in Library and Track views, with Alphabet popup in Library views.

Yep. that works well, BUT, the scroll bar and alphabet popup are still effectively invisible in the Dark theme. Even with the screen brightness on my tablet set so the tablet warns me that prolonged viewing could cause eye strain.

Probably not, but my player goes to sleep when not playing and WOL is very useful.

Of course the other option is to make WOL run automatically,

Yes, Gizmo does that and it seems to work well; you don't have to think about WOL it just happens.

Thanks for this. However it is perhaps not as helpful as in JRemote (see pics) as the letter is smaller and often right under the finger...

Thanks for getting the hardware volume key working when controlling MC.

Would like to see ARTIST BIO alongside METADATA as it was in previous JRemote.

Also some thumbnails still don't load:



Equivalent screen grab from original JRemote:



Apparent duplication of Wagner album is not.  They are ripped from the same disc, but have different album titles in the MC library - one having "(Surround)" appended, the other not.  Missing thumbnails not limited to those - for example "The Egyptian" shown is missing the thumbnail.

This only seems to happen when controlling an instance of MC that loads the library across the local network (but showing all the thumbnails correctly on the MC interface itself).  It doesn't seem to happen when controlling an instance of MC on the PC where the library is stored.

A Blue Music Note means that MC sent that as an icon, and JRemote just displays what it received, JRemotes place holder for missing icons are all grey-ish.

Those screen grabs were done within minutes of each other while controlling the same instance of MC.  It is not clear why the same instance of MC sends blue music notes to JRemote2 when it can send the correct thumbnails to JRemote?  I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the instance of MC being controlled at the time is not the instance of MC that holds the library. These blue music notes only appear on JRemote2 when controlling an instance of MC that loads a library from across the network - in this case from a PC with a large HDD. I'm not seeing grey-ish place holders.  Also I have no missing cover art in my library and every album in it shows correct cover art in the MC interface.

I have seen this also at a friend's place.  He uses JRemote on an iPad to control a MacBook laptop that loads a "cover art perfect" library from a PC on his network.  Random blue music notes show on his iPad too.  Please tell Matt.

Looks great so far

questiona -

1. How to delete a server from My Servers list?  You should be able to delete a server by holding down on the name or within edit there should be a delete option

2 . Controlling subtitles.  How to turn them on or off?  This is a big issue for me as i often watch foreign videos and need to see the subtitles.

3 - file list. can the file list that has thumbnails have the file name across two lines .  There should be enough space.  Also change default view option as it always defaults to thumbnail view and always to Audio page.

4 - Download media option.  this is one feature that I love on the MO4Media App as I can Dload media to my phone when in an area with no wifi/cell connection (e.g., b4 i fly)

Thanks and keep up the good work

I can answer number 1, deleting servers is not implemented yet, it's on Hendrik's to-do list. It's listed in the Known Issues / Missing Features list in the first post of this topic.

I've published a new version to the Play Store, it should be arriving on your phones in the next couple hours.

If you have a confirmed working Wake-On-LAN setup in your network, I would appreciate if you could confirm that it does indeed work for you with this version.
There is no automatic waking - yet. So to trigger it you'll have to press the button. I will revisit automatically sending a WOL packet in a future version, but I wanted to get this out before I'll be on a short vacation next week.

Otherwise, the usual small fixes for glitches and bugs. More feature work coming after a short break.

JRemote 2.0.9 (01/16/2020)

1. NEW: Implemented Wake-on-LAN
2. Changed: Added a long-click popup on the server list, which allows editing/deleting/waking servers.
3. Fixed: Resolved an issue that prevented JRemote2 from starting on Android 4.x.
4. Fixed: Repeated attempts to connect to a server would silently fail, instead of actually re-trying.
5. Changed: The Playlist navigation will no longer skip empty levels.
6. Changed: With MC 26.0.17 or newer, JRemote will avoid the default placeholder images for playlists or library folders.
7. Fixed: Adjusted the visibility of the fast scroll popup in the dark skin, and made the entire popup bigger.

1. How to delete a server from My Servers list?  You should be able to delete a server by holding down on the name or within edit there should be a delete option
You can do this now in 2.0.9, long-press on a server in the server list to get a menu.

2 . Controlling subtitles.  How to turn them on or off?  This is a big issue for me as i often watch foreign videos and need to see the subtitles.
Currently - you cannot. Improved video playback controls are planned for the future, but no ETA yet. Will need MC changes first to do it properly.

3 - file list. can the file list that has thumbnails have the file name across two lines .  There should be enough space.  Also change default view option as it always defaults to thumbnail view and always to Audio page.
You should be able to change the default in the settings, I think? It should also remember any manual changes - for each top-level view individually, so at worst you should only have to change it once, unless that doesn't work?
For multi-line .. will have to see how that looks. Not quite sure it might fit, especially if people use bigger font settings.

4 - Download media option.  this is one feature that I love on the MO4Media App as I can Dload media to my phone when in an area with no wifi/cell connection (e.g., b4 i fly)
There are plans for this in some shape or form, so we'll see.

The recently introduced MC26 enables lyrics to be added to the metadata.  I added lyrics to a few albums and copied them to my IdPiís SSD.  They could be read on EOS, but with a problem.  I installed JRemote2 to see if it had the same problem, and it does.

You can see the lyrics as part of the metadata for a track, but when the next track starts the metadata isnít refreshed so you still see the previous trackís lyrics.  I hope this can be sorted; it is particularly important for classical music fans listening to opera and wanting to see the lyrics.  I think lyrics should be seen full screen, perhaps with track number/name as a header, apart from the other metadata.  You normally view metadata just to check a detail, but lyrics are different.

Its not exactly a bug, it just doesn't do what you think it does.  When opening the metadata view, it'll open it for a specific file - the one currently playing. When the currently playing file changes, then its not meant to swap the metadata view to the new file. Its hard to know what the user really might expect. If the track is almost over, and I figure I want to check something in the metadata, I might not want it to swap over quite yet. But if you use it to follow the lyrics, you might.

Maybe I'll add an option, or something, to be able to do this. But what I'll definitely do is add a seperate screen to directly read the Lyrics,  instead of having to do it in the metadata view.

Any chance for Cloudplay and Radio JRiver playback?

We're definitely planning to do this. With 2.0.9 (released just now), you can play downloaded Cloudplay playlists (find them in the Playlists section).
Proper integration so you can pick playlists straight from the cloud as well as Radio JRiver stations will come in a later update.

I would appreciate if you could confirm that it does indeed work for you with this version.

WOL worked fine to my MC25.0.115 Server. Wake was immediate. I let the PC finish its start, then connected to the Server. A two step process, but that is okay with me, as I may just wish to wake a PC, and not connect to it immediately.

PS: Access to the Edit Server page worked fiine as well. I didn't edit anything, or try to delete a server though. Not today!

JRemote2 for Android: Playing queue

I apologize if this has been covered and I missed it, but I didn't see anything post on it. Is there a way to see the current playing queue for upcoming tracks? I can see the currently paying song, but can't figure out how to see what is coming up next.

Thank you, I knew it was probably something easy. I will try that tonight when I get home from work :)

Thanks for native ogg support! Working great. Opus next?  8)

Casting doesn't play anything for when using Sony's built in chromecast support. I get JRemote splash screen but music and videos both doesn't work. Old JRemote still works.

Maybe it doesn't support Cast v3. I can only really support official Cast devices. Not that I get much control over it anyway, I tell it to play your selected playlist and a Google library does the actual communication.

7. Fixed: Adjusted the visibility of the fast scroll popup in the dark skin, and made the entire popup bigger.

Excellent. Even my ancient eyes can read it. Thanks

Its not exactly a bug, it just doesn't do what you think it does.  When opening the metadata view, it'll open it for a specific file - the one currently playing. When the currently playing file changes, then its not meant to swap the metadata view to the new file. Its hard to know what the user really might expect. If the track is almost over, and I figure I want to check something in the metadata, I might not want it to swap over quite yet. But if you use it to follow the lyrics, you might.

Maybe I'll add an option, or something, to be able to do this. But what I'll definitely do is add a seperate screen to directly read the Lyrics,  instead of having to do it in the metadata view.

Thanks Hendrik.  The separate screen is exactly what I was hoping for.

That's odd.  I'm not a Beta tester, but my JRemote2 updated a couple of days ago.  Using the dark theme I can now scroll OK, which I couldn't before, but I only see the square for the initial letter - I don't see the letter.  In the light theme I see the letter clearly.  I'm using a Samsung Galaxy A2 (2017), with Android 8.

JRemote2 works fine on my end when I play music to the phone but when I select "player" there is no playback from the server I am connected to. The server is a NUC based Windows 10 machine which connects to a library server. Playback from the original JRemote works fine. I didn't see this on the list of known not working features so I figured I should report it.

Does audio work when you try to play it from MC running on the NUC?

You need to be on version 2.0.9. The version number is shown in the top right corner of the slide-out drawer in JRemote2.

The Dark Theme shows a light grey square with dark text, still near the left edge, but not under my finger when I use the scroll, so visible.
