If you could get one new improvement, what would it be?

I tried to answer this but I think I have too many random little things to ask for that makes it hard to choose

Fwiw they all seemed to fall in the category of "I would use <some MC feature> if <thing it doesn't do>", I can think of a few like that. The most recent thought in this style was "I would use spotlight if it was filtered by the contents of my library" so I will go with that one for today.

It does show albums in your library now.  Only those?

„Feature Request! I've noticed that every time I load a .Cue file and convert the files contained within it into a different format with mc, I have to manually adjust the corresponding cue file. Would it be possible for the software to automatically modify the file extension in the cue file when I've selected the option to replace the original file, regardless of the format I'm converting to? This feature would greatly enhance the user experience and streamline the conversion process."

I think that the things I really want are all in Linux (bd playback on Linux, particularly allowing a Linux via the local file option regardless of server OS)

Aka I would use Linux MC more if I could use it easily for video

Either an integration of sacd_extract (or your own implementation that does the same thing). It'd allow the user to be able to extract DSF/DFF files from SACD ISOs without doing any sort of conversion. Could also potentially allow the user to be able to "convert" DFF to DSF or vice versa by unpacking the file and changing only the container (and not the data), to avoid any conversion, especially the PCM conversion in the middle.

Please add video playback Slow Motion controls to the theater view OSD (similar to Subtitles/LipSync/Zoom). More importantly, prevent the "DSP Tempo dialog" from popping up when Slow Motion is enabled/disabled (perhaps add an option to mute or disable audio when slow motion is used).

Two pennies:

1. Unified/Global views. Standard view, theater view, media network (JRemote/Panel), dlna, it's too many different settings when I typically just want to create a view in Standard View and have it show up everywhere. Or at least an option to add it everywhere after it's created.

2. Hybrid smartlists. Drag a track or tracks onto a smartlist and the smartlist should add an OR rule for that specific file (by filename?) so it is added to the smartlist.

I would quite like this too, but only if the login "Remember me" option can properly stick. I don't use cloudplay because it will not 'remember me', and as my password is a 20+ character string of random letters, numbers and special characters, it's all just too much hassle.

Along with a Map view like Lightroom has, that shows pins where photos were taken with a number on the pin showing how many photos, and, if you drag/drop a photo onto a map location, GPS tags for the dropped location are applied to the photo(s).

My own wish...
Are you familiar with Apple's "iPhone Memories"?

It basically makes short videos of people or events, set to cheesy music, automatically. It's kind of OK.

Recently, I've been frustrated by wanting to make my own. I can select the mix of videos and photos in MC, but need to go find a third party app to generate the video. This would also need to allow us to add title screens, captioning, credit screens and soundtrack. This is my Christmas wish :)

Cloudplay on a PC?  I've never seen that.

I'll move this to a new thread.

I've actually thought about this more, and thought of something I actually wish for more, hahaha.

- Panel needs to have a list view.

Panel uses a thumbnails view, which I'm honestly not a fan of, and would prefer having a list view. All the remotes (Gizmo, JRemote, etc.) all have list view as an option in addition to the thumbnail view. Panel is the only one without such an option. If Panel had a list view, it'd make Panel more useful for me.

Theaterview list type link support to select individual items from list. Hopefully properly designed to also include images. eg <img src="tooltip:image" linkable="true" linkto="Artist"> or something like that.
There is kind primitive support via Spotlight but it is hard coded, feels separated from main UI, not skinnable and in my subjective view not too good looking.

How about a Theater View overhaul?

The recent thread(s) on this were quite impressive, but getting it all working is largely restricted to the realm of the Advanced/Expert users.

-

Gapless playback for Atmos music would be very nice - lots of Atmos discs now but no gapless playback.

Another wish: I'd like to be able to add cover art from a client machine and have it populate to the server.

Cheers guys, congrats on a long run of success!

1) Agree with AD and Shoe about their DSD options and would add a little more, namely a) a clear option for doing native mode (not DOP) DSD for DLNA and b) add options to the Output Format DSP for 1x, 2x, 4x and 8x conversion to PCM and make the Output Format column be the actual final PCM sample rate. The latter would take the mystery out of the factor of 8 conversion going from DSD to PCM, which is now hidden and undocumented.  Those changes would pretty much complete the DSD implementation.

2) Implement wdm to DLNA output. It would make streaming from music services work in all cases.  Other players seem to be able to do it by somehow munging the format.

3) Add Audio Path for DLNA back in to show the DSPs and format conversions that are implemented prior to sending the DLNA stream. People would then know exactly what is actually being sent to the DLNA renderer.

Thanks for listening.

Now that I'm back and have taken up photography, it would be wonderful to have Face Recognition in MC. I understand there is a push on to improve Images and that might just get a lot more people using it.

I saw Jim's list of possibilities and was very happy to see Face Recognition on it. Sandra and I were talking yesterday about how unfortunate it is that MC doesn't have it. We recently stopped using Mylio (which has FR) as a DAM for our finished photos and switched to MC. Thus, having it in MC would be very useful to us.

Cheers, Rod

If I am understanding you correctly re: native mode for DSD over DLNA, I am doing this.  In another room I have a Sony Sound Bar that supports DSD and using DLNA I can play native DSD to it.

It's been a while, but in FileAssociations.XML, I had to add the first two (dff and dsf).  I believe the second two were already there but I don't recall at this point.

<Item Name="dff">audio/x-dff;audio/dff</Item>
<Item Name="dsf">audio/x-dsd;audio/dsd</Item>
<Item Name="dsd">audio/x-dsd;audio/dsd</Item>
<Item Name="sacd">audio/x-sacd;audio/sacd</Item>

my DSD rips are to dsf + whole disc backup.  anyway, setting the correct mimetype fixed this for me.

Yes, you can stream DSD over DLNA. However, the UI is not clear how to do that. The only check box is to stream DoP over DLNA. There is no way to know that you can stream native over DLNA simply by unchecking the DoP option. There is nothing that explicitly says Bitstream Native DSD. Many people have been confused by this. I simply think there should be a displayed option that lets you choose either DoP or Native. It's a simple change to the UI, but it will provide a direct choice of DoP or native, which will mean fewer confused people.  So, for example, 3 options

       o  Bitstream DSD over DLNA using DoP
       o  Bitstream DSD over DLNA native sample rate

or Bitstream DSD
      o  DoP
      o  Native

or even
      0  Bistream DSD (Requires DoP compliant renderer) - Uncheck to Bitstream Native DSD

This is an old suggestion and should be very easy to implement. It is just a point of confusion for many.

Could you start a thread on the MC31 board and provide more details?  Or bump an old one.  I don't recognize that problem.

I find this happens occasionally when MC is spinning its wheels thinking about something, the display stretches across the full screen and becomes unresponsive.

But it generally doesnt last more than 10 seconds and I havent had to alt-tab away so I don't worry about it too much. Has been happening for a few versions now on my Windows client instance.

Autoimport / Import as an independent process so that the Media Centre remains reactive during the import of many, many files.
Not as it is now that the import process locks / can lock the entire program.

Small wish, it would be great if when opening the MC video settings during playback (right click / video settings), it wouldn't go full screen, and then when opening the JRVR or madVR settings from these setings, it woulnd't go full screen either, or at least if both screens would at least remember the last size/position for the settings/JRVR settings if we've minimized/moved them in that session. It's really annoying to have the settings windows cover the full screen when you try to adjust a dsetting in real-time to see the effect on the picture, and it's even more annoying to have to do it everytime, twice, because nothing is remembered.

This has been happening since MC12, at least. It's a mystery to me why it happens. I think MC is specially prone to it when it is importing files. Playing tracks and skipping through them can cause the interface to become unresponsive and then do the stretching thing.

Looks like Bytestar has noticed this too!

- Albums (possible now under Audio)
- Single Tracks (possible now under Audio)
- Music Video's (not possible now -  you have to add that under video)
- Concerts (BD, DVD rips) (not possible now -  you have to add that under video)
- Extras (not possible now -  you have to add that under video)

Also for Classical Music concerts (video), music videos a functionality to have composer etc. like under audio

Allow JRiver to take exclusive control of MCE remote control inputs (Prevent other running apps from recognising MCE remote inputs)

Reasoning: I like to have spotify open on my HTPC as well as JRiver, the HTPC is used for these two applications only. I like to control spotify music through the app on my phone and predominantly use an MCE remote to control JRiver in Theatre mode to watch shows and movies. However, with spotify open in the background it also responds to remote control inputs like play, pause, skip that I use when watching a movie/show in JRiver. SO when I press play in a movie, spotify starts playing music as well.

This process worked fine in Windows Media centre.

Nick,
MC has an option under Theater View that lets you disable WMC when running MC.  Worth a try.

Would love to see an easy to use working Android app that will work on my Nvidia Shield.  Something modern looking!

In your liist of possible upgrades for MC32:
>Organized backup to other machines
> on the network.  The user just chooses
> a location for the database and a root
> location for the media and we do the rest.

Not sure what this means. I'm an audio only user, and have not found sync from one machine to another easy and error free enough. If over my network I could very easily transfer new music, playlists, and other library changes (art, ratings, ...) from my PC, where I maintain everything, to my notebook, rhe move from MC31 to MC32 woud be worth it to me.

1. A formal approach to getting music on the iPhone.  I am still using MCiTunes Synchronizer.  I am hoping it may now be okay to relook at some mechanism to do this, especially since I think iTunes itself is headed for the junk bin and then the Synchronizer probably won't work at all.


2. Better volume leveling for an audio playlist.  I know MC uses a standard accepted approach, but that approach appears to not handle very well the perceived volume on a playlist that has files that have different combinations of compressed, expanded, or maximized files.  Maybe there is inherently no solution to this, but wanted to mention it.

Jim mentioned facial recognition for images.  I am thinking that isn't practical for MC.  Too much effort and will likely always be behind the dedicated photo programs.  I am wondering if it might be better to ensure that facial recognition tags are picked up and can be used with the JRiver, including maybe some specialized sorting routines on the tags.

After editing and saving changes to a view, do not reset to the default state all views open in other tabs.

This has been happening since MC12, at least. It's a mystery to me why it happens. I think MC is specially prone to it when it is importing files. Playing tracks and skipping through them can cause the interface to become unresponsive and then do the stretching thing.

Looks like Bytestar has noticed this too!

This happens frequently when I access files on a NAS.

I'll split this to a new thread.

JRiver asks the OS for data.  The OS handles the specifics of the storage (NAS or otherwise).  If the data is unavailable, you're not going to have good results.

Antivirus software can have the same effect.  It inserts itself in the process and slows everything down.

I thought of a third one, sorry: Automatic Genre and Sub-Genre tagging from a reliable and standardized online source.

We are ask the djinn for one wish or more than one?
I will start with one or more depends on your time and the complexity of it. MC is the jack of all trade of all our media files, video, audio, etc.
Is hard to think for one media but then to take in consideration the others and the way they are affected.
Anyway bk to my djinn.
1. Spotlight integrated as the main view of artist in audio;
2. Links like <a ref> instead of links in front of name value. If one value has more names, it will select the first one;
3. Playlist/Smartlist ability to add image on it;
4. Changes on the UI of MC (More on this soon, working on some cn concept);
5. Djinn is gone kill me 😅
6. Tag window to be dockable on standard view. If I want to adjust my tag window to see the names of it, it will mess with the view. Especially on smartlist view or playlist, imagine when you have over 3k of them, and then to adjust it and when you think you finish and u modify the size of tag you go back again...;
7. Change the way of how the skip count work. Not all of them songs have the same duration. A 30 second rule it should apply for this. If you listen for a song of let say 10 minutes, and you push next before the half of the time, is consider a skip. If I stop the song before the half time and then I stop listen for a while, MC will close the playtime and it consider a skip;
8. Dislike and like button accross the MC. Make them visible on UI display;
9. Group smarlist to act as a folder. Instead to look on all your playlist/smartlist, it should summarize them;
10. Enough for now, I do think some things needs to be bring to this age and onwards. If you consider anything a good wish we can debate about them, if not we carry on and keep them as wishes. Maybe one day 😏
