2. Fixed: Handheld filename rules with a dot did not work nicely as everything after the dot was read as the extension.
3. NEW: Zooming and center shifting of video position during live TV playback will get these properties saved for the TV channel so that the same will be applied the next time the channel is played.

19. NEW: Manage Links allows creating a link that's a program on the computer with parameters.

22. NEW: When unfreezing a column, it will be restored back to the position it was at when it was frozen.
23. NEW: Next to the "Edit in Popup" button in the Tag window, there is also a close button to make the field not expanded.

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.

Updated to 86 today. After use of a couple of hours, JRiver crashed and refuses to relaunch. I rebooted the computer (iMac) several times but no luck. Other programs function normally.

P.S. I have downgraded JRiver to 66 and now it works again (66 and not 86). I'll wait to upgrade until others have sorted out the bugs.

It's possible this is a MacOS problem.

https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,133733.msg926364.html#msg926364

But if that is the case, no one with Macos Monterey version 12.5 should upgrade To JRiver media Center 29.0.86 for Mac Silicon and stick to 29.0.66

My M1 Mac Mini is running under Monterey 12.5 and both yesterday and today I've had MC 29.0.86 running for over 5 hours without anything odd/unexpected/unusual happening.

I have OS 12.5., too, on a Macbook and there is no problem with the 29.0.86 build.
But the "it looks like an empty field while typing tags" bug still is there....

I cannot remember when and how JRiver 86 crashed, but the main issue was that JRiver 86 would not boot anymore after this crash (including after rebooting the MAC). So I downgraded to 66. Is there another way of forcing JRiver to reboot on the MAC, other than downgrading the program?

paul - all I can suggest is download MC 29.0.86 again but this time when you install it tell the computer to keep both the older and newer versions.

Just be careful that when opening MC you select the "right one;" also if 20.0.86 still misbehaves and crashes then i would recommend you get your mac checked out.

Oh - Applications do not "Boot" they "Open/Run", or fail to.

Does this build fix the delay in which the right click options show up? i am currently on 29.0.66 and everytime I right click a song for example it takes about 3 or 4 seconds before the options show up. I am using it on an M1 macbook pro 13.
