This is a new build of JRiver Media Center 29 for Mac.  Please post bugs here.  Please start a new thread for anything requiring discussion.  Non-bug posts will be deleted.

Download Universal Silicon/Intel 64 bit build
https://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v29/latest/MediaCenter2900066-Universal.dmg (minimum requirement MacOS 10.11)

29.0.66 (6/28/2022)

1. NEW: Add SHOW_THEATER_VIEW_MODE_SPOTLIGHT (13) to MCC_THEATER_VIEW which shows the Spotlight page for the currently playing file.
2. NEW: Using OSD commands (i.e. remote control or keyboard) to change aspect ratio settings during live TV playback will save the settings so that the same setting will be used in the future.
3. Changed: Memory playback disables for URLs that have no length reported.
4. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukac).
5. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
6. Fixed: Handheld transfer when connected to a Library Server was not working in all cases.
7. Changed: A different attempt at smooth progress (local zones only) that's hopefully smoother.

29.0.64 (6/23/2022)

1. Changed: Put the top border back in dialogs that are maximizable because removal was causing drawing artifacts in DSP Studio and possibly other areas.
2. NEW: The option to use forward slashes is in the export playlist and export all playlists dialogs.
3. Fixed: When a client plays a live TV channel using a server tuner, the ""PlaybackInfo" tag was not passed to the client and thus not applied on the client.

5. Fixed: Seeking holding down next or previous wasn't working since the smooth progress addition.
6. NEW: Added a couple of stock Smartlists: "Television -- Channels" and "Television -- Guide".

11. NEW: The regular progress bar (not waveform) is smooth as well.
12. NEW: Skins can specify an ANALYZER section and provide a background color (example: <Colors Background="ff00ff" />).
13. Fixed: NVIDIA NVENC hardware video encoding did not work reliably on all newer drivers.
14. Fixed: The smooth progress bar would stop being smooth after going in or coming out of display view.
15. Fixed: Multiple comboboxes could be opened at once (instead of the first closing).
16. NEW: Manage Library Fields remembers the size and position between uses.
17. NEW: Manage Library Fields remembers the filter selection between uses.
18. Changed: Tooltips are hidden in Spotlight when using remote/keyboard navigation.

20. Changed: Skin change in MC clears out all Spotlight caches.
21. Fixed: ASS/SSA subtitles with unicode characters in their path or name did not load properly.

23. Changed: There is more space below the rules and modify sections of the search / smartlist dialog.
24. Changed: A little additional tuning of the edit search / smartlist dialog (feedback appreciated).
25. Changed: The Analyzer DSP uses dark grey for a background color.270. Changed: The Analyzer DSP uses the text color for the axis labels instead of a hard coded value.

4. Fixed: TV playback could crash on non-Windows..
5. NEW: Navigate Spotlight pages in Theater View with remote/keyboard.
6. Fixed: Tabs could blink when changing if an Action Window was open (possibly fixes other visual artifacts).

8. Changed: Made the minimize, maximize and close buttons respond to the mouse over state in dialogs.
9. Changed: When editing a big field in a popup, the cursor is placed at the beginning of the edit instead of the end.
10. Fixed: Spotlight would not show correct background color for some skins.
11. Fixed: Positioning of the TV playback window.

29.0.58 (6/3/2022)

8. Fixed: Back from Spotlight in Theater View was not returning to file view.
9. Changed: The mouse wheel over large edits or lists in the Action Window will be consumed by that control instead of promoted to the container when a scrollbar isn't needed (which stops editing and scrolls to the next field).

11. Fixed: A new template would not load when doing "Refresh" in the Tag Action Window.

29.0.54 (5/27/2002)

1. NEW: Scroll zoom with the mouse wheel or trackpad for image playback implemented.
2. Changed: Reverted the optimization that resulted in a slower benchmark in build 50, now turned to speed only and it's significantly faster (on M1) then previous builds.
3. Changed: In image playback, left-clicking the image will no longer zoom in or out.
4. NEW: MCWS function Television/GetRecordingScheduleXML that returns TV recording schedule in a single xml-formatted string, instead of an enumerated multiple return strings that previous function Television/GetRecordingSchedule returns.
5. NEW: Added a Refresh command to the Tag Action Window to reload.
6. Changed: The tag window opens values at the full height of the tag window when editing something big like lyrics.
7. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
8. NEW: Tag windows show an option to switch between the modern and legacy tag editors (the shift shortcut has been removed).
9. Fixed: The new right-click menu to expand and collapse all was taking over for all fields in the Tag window.
10. Changed: Spotlight movie and TV content uses Wikipedia language setting.
11. NEW: MCWS function Television/GetRecordingScheduleXML that returns TV recording schedule in a single xml-formatted string, instead of an enumerated multiple return strings that previous function Television/GetRecordingSchedule returns.

16. Fixed: When playing images, if a Playing Now tab was open, it would just switch to that tab instead of showing Display View.
17. NEW: Data files (like books) can lookup images from the internet.  The name field is used for a Wikipedia search.
18. NEW: Beta build. Many internal changes to increase stability. Report regressions please.


29.0.50 (5/19/2022)

1. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukac).
2. Changed: Spotlight: display year in Movie Credits and ignore credits without a year.
3. Changed: Spotlight: display birth and death dates for actor/director.
4. Changed: Spotlight: increase height of horizontal scroll bars and make some caption text bold.
5. Fixed: Spotlight: Similar Artists are retrieved in English.
6. Fixed: Allow seeking to the end byte of a buffered internet file. The previous behavior broke opus playback over media network (and probably others).
7. Changed: Rebuilding the thumbnail on a library server client will make a rebuild request to the server so it won't just return the same cached thumbnail (testing appreciated).
8. Changed: Quick Find Cover Art on a client issues the request to the server.
9. Changed: When scrollable edit controls are inside scrollable windows (like Manage Library Fields) the mouse wheel will only operate the inner most window.
10. Changed: The Tag window has the same scroll behavior where the mouse wheel will run something like Tag Dump if it's over that instead of the outer container.
11. Changed: Spotlight shows "recommended" movies instead of "similar".
12. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
13. Fixed: MC could hang if there have been consecutive errors on a TV tuner in a short period of time.

15. NEW: Spotlight for Actors/Directors added and displayed when you click on a cast member in movie Spotlight.

29.0.49 (5/12/2022)

1. Changed: Put the 8x resample done during DSD to PCM conversion in Audio Path.
2. Fixed: Some crashes on M1 Macs, often but not always, when switching views to a web based view.
3. NEW: Spotlight for movies added (preliminary).
4. NEW: TV tuner status can be displayed in Theater View.
5. Changed: When multiple artists are specified as a list, Spotlight just matches the first artist.
6. Fixed: Media Center could crash when starting JRVR with an empty shader cache file.
7. Changed: Internal, specifying a more recent set of compiler requirements in line with the MC linux compiler requirements.

29.0.48 (5/10/2022)

2. Changed: DSD to PCM sample rates are reported at their original sample rate instead of one eighth in Audio Path.
3. Changed: "Play previous channel" is changed to "Play last played TV channel".
4. NEW: Added a few new commands to the list of MC commands in remote control setup.
5. Changed: Cover art from the show command will be extracted to the temporary folder and stay until MC is restarted (previously we were deleting a temporary file before it could be shown).
6. NEW: Added MCC_PLAY_SELECTED (10069) to play the selected files (0: play replace, 1: append, 2: play next).
7. NEW: "Screen Grab to File" and "Use Screen Grab for Thumbnail" are supported with JRVR.
8. Changed: Updated German translation file (thanks Bytestar).
9. Changed: Ran all the translations through the tool to update to the latest strings from the source code.
10. NEW: Sat>IP devices can now be supported on non-Window platforms as Sat>IP devices, instead of being supported as IPTV devices.
11. Fixed: Restored expression fix for "calculated unless filled" type fields.
12. Changed: When playing 2 channel content with no upmixing as 5.1, it will no longer be reported as 2.1 in Audio Path.
13. Changed: Re-designed the JRVR General and Output options pages to be more user friendly.
14. Changed: Adjusted the default for HDR to SDR conversion brightness.
15. NEW: Added button to Theater View file roller to display Spotlight (view only, not interactive).
16. Fixed: Reverted recent expression changes due to issues with correct evaluation.
17. Changed: More tuning to the Manage Library Fields dialog.
18. Changed: Tweaked Spotlight Wikipedia About matching.
19. Changed: Made the Manage Library Fields dialog have a scrollbar when the size is made too small.
20. Changed: Updated the Catalan language (thanks Josep!).
21. Fixed: Expression fields could still be a problem evaluating.
22. Changed: Expanded the new Manage Library Fields rule to include hidden fields.
23. Fixed: Expression fields that were calculated unless filled could fail to evaluate properly in some cases.

26. Changed: Updated Chinese (simplified) language file (thanks YanJun Sun).
27. NEW: Long press on Spotlight button opens new tab.
28. NEW: Added button to Spotlight (top right corner) that lets you Google the current track in Playing Now or show Spotlight for the current artist.
29. Fixed: For Spotlight Wikipedia About added simple keyword checks to avoid non-music-related results.
30. Changed: Made the default audio conversion mode for Library Server "No Conversion".
31. NEW: Added a list of file types to convert for the convert if necessary library server client mode.

While you are working on fixing the window borders would you please add a larger grab area around the window to match the normal behavior of all other apps which allow grabs a good 10 pixels or more around the outside of the window borders?  Having to mouse in on one grab pixel around the window is really very difficult.

I do agree with it being difficult resizing and stuff. Also is it possible to enable enlarging of the scroll bar on the right side?

there totally seems to be some regressions in the past few versions with media keys while the app is in the background and launching Apple Music instead.  Please work on making this much more robust whatever it actually takes.

It's certainly not 1 pixel. You'd never be able to grab it if it was.

The grab area on my M1 with 4k monitor is the same width/height as other apps. I just compared to Thunderbird. It's the same. Pages is the same too. I have no idea what you are seeing.

Nothing has changed here recently.
MC will ask for permission to filter the media keys. If that's given, it will eat the media keys it processes. If not it will process them but not eat them. It's all it can do in that situation.

On my latest macOs Intel mac mini with VP3881 3840x1600 display in the Modern Cards: Dark Edition skin it certainly is 1 pixel since it only shows the drag cursor within one pixel position of the mouse.  You have to be exactly on that pixel to get the grab cursor.  Non-retina display.  Not sure what to say here except you probably need to test on a non-retina system.

Additionally regarding media keys it never actually asked me for media keys permissions.

Options->Tree and View->Enlarge scrollbars on mouseover
It's super finnicky for me and i have to hit the very specific area of the bar which is tiny with nearly 100k in the list. It doesn't enlarge unless i hit just the right spot on top of it for me, reason I want it to be bigger all the time is i'm using it on a tv from a distance.

Another thing is the dark theme highlight bar is still gray with black text which is super hard to read. It's affecting current playing song and all highlighted. If not this is a bug or a setting in macos itself, how can I make an edit myself to make it consistent with how it behaves on the windows version of the same exact skin?

TV from a distance is what that was made for.  Are you hovering over the scrollbar?

Try other skins.

Explains why I don't see that. I never use that skin. Others seem to have a border that work (I use Black and Blue amongst others). Seems like a skin bug.

It is set in the plist to generate a security query for filtering media keys.

NSAppleEventsUsageDescription

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<string>MediaCenter needs access to your system events to get Media Keys</string>
</plist>

Questions on the net about this indicate a lot of changes and a lot of bugs and no transparency from the developer point of view.
It appears that the permission needed is accessibility not input monitoring. Indeed if I toggle that off and restart MC I get the behavior you describe. Turn it back on and restart MC and it no longer brings up Music.

I've also see references to each signed build needing to get the permission again but that sounds nuts.

The results of the attempt to get this permission is logged in MC (and should probably be in the system logs as well)

Bob - The only problems I could find in MC29.0.66 were:-
On opening with a partially played playlist it still isn't AutoScrolling down to the track to be played
That screen update that happens immediately after the Next Track Prefetch is prematurely reseting the Progress Bar back to it's start point.

Something that may happen to others - When I 1st opened MC29.0.66 and told it to switch from displaying CoverArt + Lyrics to using a TrackInfo Plugin all I got was an Empty White Display Panel.
I finally got it to Load/Display the TrackInfo Plugin by a "devious method":- I selected a Smartlist from the Tree, which allowed me to open the Display Window in the Tree - telling that to switch to Displaying a TrackInfo Plugin worked; on switching back to Playing Now View not only was the TrackInfo Plugin visible I was bale to switch between plugins.


It's super finnicky for me and i have to hit the very specific area of the bar which is tiny with nearly 100k in the list. It doesn't enlarge unless i hit just the right spot on top of it for me, reason I want it to be bigger all the time is i'm using it on a tv from a distance.

If not this is a bug or a setting in macos itself, how can I make an edit myself to make it consistent with how it behaves on the windows version of the same exact skin?

In the attached Pix01 Gallery - https://pix01.jriver.com/qL1%406dnt :-
Image 1 is of a modified ThunderStorm Skin with the DSP Analyzer Window Open where the gridlines and background are using the same color as the ones in the Skin's List Setion (Item 8 for MC29.0.66 and item 12 for MC 29.0.64)
Image 2 shows that I finally got a TrackInfo Plugin to load; Lyrics visible both in the Tag Window and the Lower Panel (Changes to "Lyrics Edit Windows" in MC29.0.54/58/60) and a Maroon (the colour used in the player bar buttons) not Red EditOverlay color in the Tag Window, a change not mentioned.
Oh it also shows a few other modifictions I made to that skin.
Image 3 shows that the Spotlight Windows are now using the skins background and text colours.
Image 4 is a Screenie of a modified ModernCards DarkEdition Skin with the selected/playing track being presented as White Text on Grey and Scroll Bards that are both Twice The Size of the ones in the unmodied skin.

I'll start a new thread detailing what changes a user needs to make to the Skins main.xml to change the Selected/Playing Tracks text from Black to White and how to increase the size of the Scrollbars. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,133436.0.html

Not sure if this is worth a mention, but if you interact with some of the dropdowns in the Audio section of the left side of MC before it has loaded the library (external) fully, it instantly crashes for me on my m1.

MC should probably disable input while the library is loading.
I assume you are loading a Library server library? Thanks.

Still can't reproduce this.
Can you make a screen recording of it with quicktime?

I'm still getting the wrong menu the first time I select a menu item after opening MC. Clicking on any menu item opens the Help menu. After that first time, it acts normal.

Still have never seen this either.
Try Options->Tree and View->Advanced->Reset window position settings
(which will reset all saved window placement settings to default)

That didn't help. Screen recording attached.

Edit: I figured out the problem. The app Bartender conflicts. If I shut down Bartender, I no longer have the incorrect menu issue. Bartender is an app that arranges the Mac menu bar. It isn't a big deal so I will deal with it as both programs are essential to me.

Look under Privacy & Security->Automation.
If MC is there under the Bartender app you should be able to disable its control of MC.

Yes, also maybe this is a weird thing to ask or if it's an obscure scenario, but sometimes MC starts so fast after boot it fails to load the library and I have to click retry, is it possible to add a manual delay to the startup until like 30+ seconds after macos boot?

Do you think it has something to do with the network not being completely setup yet?
Is it wireless?

wired gigabit full duplex if it makes any difference, i do have wifi manually turned off but i have no reason to think this is to blame, but maybe i could try with on and reboot a few times to test.

On 29.0.66 (and other 29 versions I tried), MC won't install iZotope RX 9 vst plugins (e.g. RX 9 De-click) while running as a native app.  Nothing happens when you try to install the plug-in. Forcing MC to run under Rosetta 'fixes' the issue and allows the plug-in to be loaded, but trying to access the plug-in when running MC natively gives the error "Cannot load plug-in - please reinstall".  The RX9 plugins are documented as natively compatible with M1, and examining the plug-in executables with lipo shows that they support the arm64 architecture. 

--UPDATE--
I opened the plugin package, and it contains a PluginHooksVST executable, with the de-clicker executable contained in a separate bundle.  The PluginHooksVST executable is x86_64 only, not arm_64, so I guess that's the issue.  Is this fixable within MC, or is it purely an iZotope problem?
