27.0.66 (2/12/2021)

1. Changed: Changed the Share toolbar button image.
2. NEW: Added a "Shared" field that gets checked when you share, but if you uncheck the file will no longer be accessible.
3. Fixed: Expressions that ended with a slash could output garbage.
4. Changed: The optional 6 dB boost applied to DSD playback is reported in Audio Path.
5. Fixed: Bug in DLNA conversion to DSF that resulted in popping especially at the end of a file.
6. NEW: When playing a DMS channel associated with a DMS device, the IP address of the channel is checked against the device's current IP address.  If the two are different, MC automatically updates the channel URL to match the device.
7. Changed: Updated Russian translation (thanks Vladimir).
8. Changed: Removed the URLs from the share dialog.
9. NEW: Added "Share" toolbar buttons.
10. Changed: Added URL escapement to the share URLs.
11. Changed: When sharing, a choice is offered about what link to place on the clipboard.
12. Changed: Renamed getting a file URL to "Share...".
13. NEW: Generated a new file sharing MCWS call that does not require authentication.  The file key is encrypted.
14. NEW: When sharing, a local IP is also provided along with the remote IP.
15. Fixed: Fast forward / rewind did not work when playing a DMS TV channel.
16. Changed: Showing the day for a year only date will show an empty string instead of one.
17. NEW: Added a way to reset your sharing credentials to Options > Media Network (will make all previous shares invalid).
18. Changed: When opening 3 or 5 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 5.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
19. Changed: When opening 7 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 7.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
20. Changed: Tweaked the text of the auto-configure dialog to be more clear and to not report the bitdepth (since that isn't the actual output bitdepth).
21. Fixed: Google lyrics lookup could contain junk at the end of the lyrics.
22. Changed: MCWS no longer requires authentication for functions marked to not require authentication.
23. NEW: Added the right-click command Get Sharing URL... to get a URL from MCWS to share externally (it uses your external IP address, so you will need to setup port forwarding on your router).
24. Fixed: TV Channel grouping did not work with DMS channels.
25. NEW: When running "Auto Group" on all TV channels, users are presented with a list of tuner types to select, so one can choose which types of channels are included in the auto group process.

27.0.61 (2/4/2021)

1. Fixed: Lyrics lookups stopped working.
2. Changed: When opening 3 or 5 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 5.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
3. Changed: When opening 7 channel files, we will try to auto-configure as 7.1 and offer that as one of the choices.
4. Changed: Tweaked the text of the auto-configure dialog to be more clear and to not report the bitdepth (since that isn't the actual output bitdepth).
5. Fixed: Filling the selected files from Theater View could get all the files instead of just the selected files.
6. Fixed: DLNA server, when the Audio output is set to "Selected Format only when Necessary" wav and mp3 files wouldn't be converted if the output format selected was the same as the input format which prevented DSD studio transformations from being applied.
7. NEW: DLNA conversion to DSD (dsf 1x).
8. Changed: Changed implementation of DMS TV channel playback and recording.  It should behave much better, in particular when playing a channel that is currently recording.
9. Fixed: If MC was started connected to a library server and the user switched to the main library, there were multiple superfluous error boxes popped up.

27.0.59 (1/29/2021)

1. Fixed: Tooltips were blocking keyboard input to underlying fields.
2. Changed: Changed implementation of DMS TV channel playback and recording.  It should behave much better, in particular when playing a channel that is currently recording.
3. Fixed: Mouse button release events were being compressed (and as such missed under some conditions).
4. Fixed: Starting a second instance of MC to play a file (common with shell associations) wasn't able to send that information to a running MC.
5. New: The mc27 stub executable can now start MC with or without a command line whether or whether not MC is running in Media Server mode.

27.0.58 (1/25/2021)

1. Changed: Waveform data is no longer being created for Video content.
2. Fixed: The change to grouping fields could cause other issues.  Feedback appreciated.
3. NEW: Added the video type MXF to the player.
4. Faster: The program loads faster.
5. Fixed: Starting a second instance of MC will bring up the running instance and exist gracefully.
6. Fixed: Media Server mode was preventing shutdown/restart.
7. Fixed: Bug in screen position when bringing up the UI from the Media Server status bar icon.
8. Fixed: Switching Analyzer in and out of "High resolution" could crash while playing.
9. Fixed: Getting an expression with the API could perform extra (and unwanted) cleaning of the output.
10. NEW: When ripping a disc for the second time, a confirmation message is shown to let you know and allow you to cancel.
11. Changed: When auto-sizing columns, width for sort arrows is included.
12. Changed: Made the analyzer fall off faster (especially in high resolution mode).
13. Fixed: The video analyzer could sometimes take a long time.
14. NEW: mc27 stub executable. This can be used to send commands to a running MC (like the windows version does).
15. Changed: When editing a field, if one of the values is empty it will be added to the list of choices instead of removed.
16. NEW: AviSynth Filter is added to the white list for "video post processing" filters.
17. Changed: Improved the DSP Studio analyzer.
18. NEW: DTS parsing gets the proper number of channels.
19. Fixed: APL files were not always working properly for the last few builds.
20. Changed: When building the list of items for a grouping, the values are formatted (before it would show an integer when grouping by date, but now it will show a proper date).
21. NEW: The smartlist editor has a rule "contains full word" to put a hat (^) in front of the word.
22. Changed: Improved threading decisions for image drawing, greatly speeding up the Analyzer DSP and other drawing tasks.
23. Fixed: The message that files will be renamed to avoid collisions is no longer shown when just updating the database.
24. NEW: Added a match mode to the ListFind(...) expression function to switch between partial matching and full matching.
25. Faster: Optimized the way the analyzer works to make processing faster.
26. Fixed: Manually editing a DMS TV channel did not work (because a list of tuners were presented, instead of a list of devices);
27. Fixed: MP4 files could report double the proper length in some cases.
28. Changed: When removing the played tracks from Playing Now, it now removes the just played track as well.
29. NEW: DMS TV channels on the same device can be mass-edited, to change device, IP Address, and/or port.  This is useful when one needs to replace a broken tuner device with a new one of the same type, or when the IP address of a device changes.
30. Fixed (possibly): High GPU usage after watching and stopping a TV show that was being recorded (may need to repeatedly watch and stop watching to reproduce).
31. Changed: Bookmarking will always clear if we reach the end of the file (before with cross-fading on it could save a value near the end).
32. Changed: Right aligning the tag saving statusbar text so the user customized text stays visible.
33. NEW: The display view window position is reset when doing "Reset window position settings...".
34. Changed: Beyonwiz U4 device is white-listed as a supported DMS TV device. Hope it works!
35. NEW: Added a "Reset Perc Data" button on TV setup wizard and EPG setup wizard, to allow users to reset when their Perc Data account, in particular the lineup info, has changed.
36. Fixed: After downloading from library server, the file could be incorrectly removed from the server's library.
37. NEW: Made stopping after a number of tracks work with DLNA.
38. Fixed: Picking no options in the Rename, Move, & Copy dialog could result in the files actually getting renamed to <No Change>.
39. Fixed: Loading and saving VST3 presets could misbehave.

27.0.50 (1/8/2021)

1. Changed: Made date imported editable like last played (instead of clear only).
2. Fixed: Loading and saving VST3 presets could misbehave.
3. Changed: Switched the equalizer to these frequencies: 31.25,62.5,125,250,500,1k,2k,4k,8k,16k.
4. NEW: VST3 effects save and load their states.
5. NEW: Added 3 channel to the VST3 output (L, R, C).
6. Fixed: When playing a DMS TV channel while the show was being recorded, the playback went to live time instead of program start time (or recording start time).
7. Changed: The shuffle at the end of the playlist when shuffle mode is on will only fire if playback is set to advance to the first track again.
8. NEW: Added the save and load buttons to VST3 plugins.
9. Fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, the later recordings might include data for previous shows.
10. Possibly fixed: When recording consecutive shows on the same channel on a DMS tuner, some recording might end up fail (zero byte recorded).
4. Changed: When searching, - is used to mark the start of a word just like space.  That way "wheel" will find "mouse-wheel".
5. Changed: TV recordings on DMS channels are now properly bookmarked.
6. Fixed: Playback as DoP was not working properly.
5. NEW: Added a Not(...) expression function to flip the state of a variable.
7. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukac).
8. Changed: Made the last played field editable (instead of clear only).
9. Changed: Updated Dutch translation (thanks Maarten!).
10. Fixed: TV background tasks might not be performed if no recording actions were scheduled.
11. Fixed: The DSP variables for the enabled state could be big values instead of 0 or 1.
12. Fixed: Pausing while watching a TV show that was still being recorded would cause recording to stop and restart, creating multiple recordings.
13. Fixed: Dividers in Parametric Equalizer did not always save their text properly.
14. NEW: DSP Presets can be saved and loaded from files.
15. Changed: Removed length limitation on string data in certain MP4 atoms (would make the waveform analysis incorrect on M4A files).
16. Fixed: Resources for cover art sent by the DLNA content directory had incorrect attributes which could cause them to be rejected in cases where they were compared to the SourceProtocolInfo.
17. NEW: Specifying "Selected" on the command line will grab the selected files.
18. NEW: Specifying "Shuffle" as one of the files on the command line will shuffle the selection.
19. Changed: Made the program message when Google has shut off translation (instead of just trying again and again failing).

27.0.45 (12/18/2020)

1. Changed: Maximum allowable filepath length changed from 256 to the linux maximum (4096).
2. Fixed: Dividers in Parametric Equalizer did not always save their text properly.
3. NEW: DSP Presets can be saved and loaded from files.
4. Changed: Removed length limitation on string data in certain MP4 atoms (would make the waveform analysis incorrect on M4A files).
5. Fixed: Resources for covert art sent by the DLNA content directory had incorrect attributes which could cause them to be rejected in cases where they were compared to the SourceProtocolInfo.
6. NEW: Specifying "Selected" on the command line will grab the selected files.
7. NEW: Specifying "Shuffle" as one of the files on the command line will shuffle the selection.
8. Changed: Made the program message when Google has shut off translation (instead of just trying again and again failing).
9. Fixed: Filling a translation from Google was not working.
10. Fixed: Firing an MCC 22003 on a not found index would crash.
11. NEW: MCC 22003 with an index of 12 shows Cloudplay.
12. NEW: Added a Cloudplay toolbar button.

16. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).

27.0.39 (12/11/2020)

1. Fixed: The libav dependency is checked when doing a video file conversion.
2. Fixed: ARM64 builds weren't always detecting NEON math co-processing.
3. Changed: When moving cover art to a new folder, a confirmation is shown before moving all the files.
4. NEW: The statusbar is updated from a thread so blocking to access a drive spinning up won't block the program.
5. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
6. Changed: The cover art path is not validated until it is used, so having it on a non-spinning drive will not spin the drive up just viewing the library.
7. Fixed: Possible deadlock when starting to play a DMS TV channel.
8. Fixed: The track info processor was not handling all the formats properly since the parenthesis addition.
9. Fixed: Text vertical alignment is properly maintained in nested tags.
10. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
11. Changed: Equalizer presets are sorted by name (instead of randomly).
12. Changed: When shuffling a set of tracks all by the same artist, the album will be used to maximize the shuffle instead of the artist.
13. Fixed: Seeking to end of file in video playback sometimes was ignored.
14. NEW: Recording works on DMS Tuner channels.
15. Changed: When renaming a library, if you rename the active library, the name used for backups will also be updated.
16. Fixed: When playing a DMS TV channel, the tuner status got stuck at "Initializing..."
17. Fixed: Media Center would not display JPEG images with minor defects (often in metadata tags).
18. Changed: Made digital TV code more robust against bad data.

27.0.37 (12/1/2020)

1. Fixed: Internet reader timeouts were too short. If a transaction was started an a delay from the server in providing the data was more that 500ms the connection would be closed. This was mostly seen when audio or video buffering to disk was disabled.
2. Fixed: The track info processor was not handling all the formats properly since the parenthesis addition.
3. Fixed: Text vertical alignment is properly maintained in nested tags.
4. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
5. Changed: When renaming a library, if you rename the active library, the name used for backups will also be updated.
6. Fixed: When playing a DMS TV channel, the tuner status got stuck at "Initializing..."
7. Fixed: Media Center would not display JPEG images with minor defects (often in metadata tags).
8. Changed: Made digital TV code more robust against bad data.
9. Changed: Track info markers for TrackInfo_Insert will try to better handle fields with parenthesis in the name.
10. Changed: Updated Czech translation (thanks Jan Boháč!).
11. Fixed: A possible crash when decoding a corrupt APE file.
12. Fixed: DSD output could crackle in the last builds.
13. Fixed: Italian had the same translation for skin and theme, so it caused Theater View options to misbehave.
14. Changed: Made the Reporter view respond to F5 and refresh.
15. Fixed: APE decoding could leak.
16. Changed: When MC fails to get DMS TV channels using the device's "urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:ContentDirectory" service, an alternative method of using a channel lineup JSON file (if available) will be attempted.

Hello:
This is an update regarding  stop and go,freezing playback from 5 past updates.
I observed after an update, my router R8000 Netgear 's speed changes from normal 1300 mbps to 866,or 1075,or 1175.
Unknown to me my video playback via dlna will not load,and if it does load,not enough speed for smooth playback.
Then, I will have to power off the router,manually disconnect and connect.
It is when the 1300 speed is available on the server, will I have a smooth playback via my Nvidia Shield.
I have no idea what triggers this  downspeed.
Now after upgrading to 27.0.66 today, lucky to report no changes in the speed, and I have been able to watch 4k, 10i0p, and even dol y vision mkvs.
TEAM JRiver.. I am not pointing a finger at MC, just reporting my  observation s.
Thanks.

Good to hear it's running now.
I'm struggling with my wifi at home now as well. It's driving me crazy. In general I try to connect everything wired ethernet but phones and pads make me keep wireless.

Hello:
Sorry to hear about your wifi issues.
I have experienced those issues many times.
Can you fill me in on your issues either via this forum or privately.
You are too good to have issues like this.
It may affect your level of concentration regarding programming.
I have good Netgear surplus hardware routers, switches, etc.
My worst nightmare with wireless was when I upgraded  from ubuntu 20.04 to 20.10, the broadcom wifi driver that performed flawlessly ,did not get detected with ubuntu 20.10.
I was in limbo for a couple of days.
Also the RTX 2080 TI driver was also buggy.
You may if you describe your wifi issues, maybe I can help.
Thanks for all the programming efforts so far.
