Ability to create DSP profiles that are associated with an audio zone.

This would provide the ability for a single zone to engage DSP processing via rules based logic. 

Yes, you can kind of accomplish this via zones, and various tagging/labeling on individual tracks, but it is kind of a disjointed approach in that you end up with a playlist broken up by each zone.

If an individual zone could engage a set of DSP rules, the processing for the one zone could be unified and would represent the one physical location that the zone truly is meant to represent.

Support for WOL when media shares are offline.
i.e. when trying to play some media in the library and the NAS is offline, send a WOL packet to the offline share and wait until it's online to play the title.
This means that a WOL configuration screen is needed where you provide the MAC address for each server and when we want the WOL packet to be sent for each server (on JRiver start, on playback start, etc).
I've helped the developers of MyMovies and of CMC to test and implement this, I'll be happy to help you test and implement too, it's not very complex.

When selecting, Cover Art => Add From File ... the dialog would pull up the folder that the tracks are in ... so you can pick the cover art from that folder, where it would be located 99.9% of the time.

It uses the last path unless it finds an image file in the folder next to the audio.  In that case it will open using the audio file folder.

This seems good to me, but just start a thread if you'd like to discuss.

Thanks.

Two wishes:

#1 - Media Sub-Types: Business, VLOG or Video Blog, Drone, Concert

#2 - Ability to Manage External Graphics Editor Files: In my case I use Pixelmator Pro on the Mac (https://www.pixelmator.com/pro). They are graphics package files (file extension is .pxd) but have image previews one can view in Finder. Would love to be able to configure JRiver to include those files in the library, even with limitations. I do tons of graphic creation, video editing, and photography for our business. MC makes my PROFESSIONAL life so much easier because of the digital asset management capabilities. The one big gap is not being able to manage the editor files themselves.

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

I have to agree; after all the Linux version has been around for quite a few years now. I'd like to see better video stability for all the Debian derivatives. It seems the video stability varies considerably over the life of each major version, and system wide crashes seem to be the norm when it is not working. OTOH TV support has been very good when used with HD Homerun. I use Ubuntu studio because the low latency kernel eliminates 90% of the latency I've encountered when there are video issues in Ubuntu, and I've had to use Debian. Sound has always been excellent on Linux; as has its audio rendering capabilities.Better Video Stability.

Improved flexibility on cover art/artwork for categories in MC.

I refer to a setting that would allow user to chose a specific folder location for artwork assigned to categories.
Example: When a category is defined by an expression, like if(IsEmpty([Artist Sort Name]), [Artist], [Artist Sort Name]), user can specify to look in the folder \Cover Art\Artists to retrieve the artwork for the expression result.

This could work for any categories defined by an expression or a field and be expanded to Genres, Publishers, Countries, etc. (right now the only possibilities are Artist, Album or Composer).
This would help navigation for views based on categories, especially when exported  to JRemote :)


Thanks!

For portable installations of MC ...

Provide the option of having auto-import make use of "(Install Drive)" rather than having only paths with a fixed drive letter.

On a work laptop, I've recently had the assigned drive letter for my portable on-to-go music HDD change quite often.  Each time, I must go edit the auto-import paths to pull in any new music that I've copied onto the drive.

I would recommend an additional memory playback option. Load full file (decoded) into memory.


Look at "Load decoded file into memory".

With that playing an APE or FLAC or WAV all have identical everything.

1. A better real time analyzer that indicates when digital clipping is occurring.
2. I almost exclusively use Theatre View, so I would like an easier way to customize it without having to learn how to code. Maybe even include a customizable window where you can display said real time analyzer or VST displays (e.g. there are some VU meter VST's that I would love to use).

If playing a multi channel movie on a two channel stereo setup, channel count in DSP settings output format changes from "source number of channels" to "2 channels (stereo)".
Please fix that output format is always "source number of channels" if that is selected.
(As it is now, you have to go into settings and change the setting back to "source number of channels")

Thank you.

Probably encoding of AAC integrated in MC. As far as I know it doesn't do that unless you use the external encoder.

I do agree with the idea and it makes sense, as AAC is generally regarded as better than MP3. If I was going to use any lossy files, I'd sure want them to be encoded as AAC, not MP3.

AAC encoding is free for a user, but not for a developer.

You can add it as an external encoder now.

This is a weird ask but you did say "make a wish!" This might be really tricky to implement, though...

When I play a movie with an external subtitle file on the local Media Center, all works well. I see that MC matches the title of the subtitle file and associates it with the media file and I don't have to browse for it.

But if I play that same movie from a remote Media Center (still on my network or outside the network) then the subtitle file doesn't work at all. It would be great if, somehow, the remote hosting MC would make the subtitle file (or the subtitles) somehow available to the client MC, so I wouldn't have to transfer the subtitle file manually to the client.

Hope that makes sense!

If I could make one more wish, it would be for some kind of wizard or agent to walk you through a typical multi-channel setup, and where things couldn't be automated they could at least be documented *in MC* itself (and kept up-to-date with the major version of MC).

Oh, I got another one!

Regarding theater view: as we already have Spotlight:
I like a sorting function similar to caleidoscape  8)
That means:
If a movie is longer than e.g. 5 seconds selected, all other movies that I own according to spotlight and/or genre are positioned arround the selected movie  :o There are plenty of youtube videos there the function can be seen.

I wish that feature for 2 reasons: Im kind of bored by the always same A-Z sorting and it would be very cool  ;D

Ability to assign channels to VST plugins so we would no longer need to use DDMF Metaplugin and co.

How it could work:
Just add a VST plugin to the chain (like now) and have a menu where we could freely assign a channel to the inputs of the plugin (eg. Left channel to Left input and so on)

Wishes:
- fixing the multiple subtitle issues that I reported (some of them requested repeatedly over years) [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
- making the Explorer in Theater view really be just a file explorer, that shows file names and doesn't hang on entering a new folder because it waits to retrieve file metadata (also requested several time over the years)
- JRVR settings option to disable sending HDR metadata to the display, to allow the use of TVs calibrated for the default Windows HDR setup

To be honest, I lost hope over years that anything in these "wish lists" on every new release matter at all.

I often have tracks that are personal vinyl rips of mine. Until recently MC worked quite well with Izotope  RX (I have 10)now the last few MCs it wont work 30&31 have been unable to work on either pc or mac. I am wondering if Native Instrument who now owns Izotope could be consulted to see how compatability could be fixed. I use the RX plugin to declick my vinyl rips or the rips of others on the fly while playing through media center. Also maybe try supporting AAU as well as VST3 on Mac for plugin file types?

Generic Playlist Import feature:

MC reads imported playlist and seeks matches for [Name], [Artist], [Album] and perhaps other basic fields...
Matching tracks are placed in newly created playlist and details can show those tracks not present in Library?

Not really sure what you mean here? If you're already using a multichannel audio device with JRiver, it should be straight forward. I find the "Room Correction" option in DSP studio really useful for troubleshooting channel mapping / levels. Solo & Tone will help you ensure that the right channel is going to the right speaker or amplifier section and that your levels per speaker are matched.

Cover art banners
« Reply #145 on: December 06, 2023, 07:19:37 pm »

I would love to have cover art banners - the ability to have a banner laid over the cover art would be amazing.
This concept applied to DVDs, Blu-Ray, and 4k UHD discs could feature a banner over the cover art denoting the specific disc format type ("blu-ray", or "4k UHD". This enhancement could be a straightforward checkbox in the cover art editing interface. Standard banners could be provided for common uses, along with a few basic options for customization such as positioning (top or bottom) and transparency levels (semi-transparent or opaque). This would offer a balance between standardization and personalization for the users.
Currently I have to hunt a peck through dozens of cover art images to find one with a 4k UHD banner for example.

This addition could also be used with CDs, particularly for distinguishing multiple discs in a set, such as CDs labeled "Disc 1," "Disc 2," and so forth. A banner displaying the disc number superimposed over the cover art, which could be toggled on or off, would facilitate the quick identification of the disc number currently in use.
