Ability to right-click and select "Duplicate" tree views, playlists, etc. just like one can do in Mac's Finder.

Few months ago there was talk of a different method of doing major version upgrades, where MC files/folders no longer carry the version number. Instead there would just be a generic MC folder without a number, same with executables. For example:
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 31\
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 31\Media Center 31.exe
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 32\
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center 32\Media Center 32.exe

Instead would become
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center\
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center\Media Center.exe

Is that happening this time around? Next time around?

Resurrect the PlayingNow plugin for MC 64 bit versions.

Revisit VolumeLeveling.  I still find myself adjusting the volume way too much between albums.  Some albums are just OMG way too loud compared to other albums.

hi, same wanted, that madvr do:) when use dynamic aspect ratio, automatically remove black bars for see biggest frame as possible without lost any pixels and without any over black pixels... just from madvr appearing this as default for any format and codecs use. that's would be cool. auto stretch everything horizon or vertical depend of black bar with right aspect ratio of course:) till frame will max size, so we will see black bars in any way some time, but only vertical or horizon not both. i think this actually not only for my own 21:9 but for 16:9, 32:9 i guess all the time lol
and would be cool if will fixed site engine. after buy on paypal opened page about "paypal page was closed, use the support etc". but everything good, email with code arrive the next second.

I think there was an option for this in previous versions of MC.

1) Statistics. Everybody and their dog wants to track everything we do, but if I want to have my own tracking for my own purposes, that is rather... lacking. Playback reports -> 'Most played' artist/genre/etc over various time spans, collection structure/breakdown of music/video/photo collections, playback timeline (i.e. how many minutes a day, what items - music, movies, tv, etc). And have that presented NOT in a spreadsheet style (or smartlist of other half-working attempts). For lack of a better description of what I suggest - think Grafana.

2) Exploratory metadata. Spotlight might be a step in that direction, but it will need a lot more pizza to compete. There is more information that can be shown for each item, there is definitely more style that can be added to the display (just playing with the XSL for the CSS used I can add shadows and other things) aaaand... there's number 3 below.

3) In my opinion there are a number of things that are starting to overlap. There is track info view, Spotlight, customizable OSD, Theater View in whichever direction it will go. Some of these things might be better if they come together, have a more unified look.

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.

I don't use MC for images, other than tied to music, so I agree with this.

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.

I second that!

Instead would become
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center\
C:\Program Files\J River\Media Center\Media Center.exe

Is that happening this time around? Next time around?

Thanks for bringing this up.  This is the main reason I no longer upgrade every time around.

Please standardize the program name.

Thank you for allowing us to provide our wishes.

My wish is related to particles. They have been left behind for a few years now.
https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,133435.msg926294.html#msg926294

I have a second one, which is to bring the following pscriptor  script in a JRiver ui: - copy files with flexible folder and file names (including sequence #'s) and create M3U8 playlists

I believe that it would be a good idea to actually bring more of these scripts in JRiver; they are based in JRiver users needs, they have been around for a long time and it would be nice for a change to be able to see them integrated in our beloved JRiver.

It has been years that DLNA renderers are working well with JRiver DSP providing the source is coming from JRiver local music. I would like to use DSP with DLNA renderers when playing URL of Radio or WDM JRiver input. Today you can play to the renderer but DSP is bypassed.

Chromecast terminal as zone ? With DSP of course . Chromecast and Airplay are now more popular than DLNA. Even Qobuz windows application  can play directly to Chromecast devices but without DSP of course for that we need to go through JRiver.

My primary use: Music
Close second: movies/downloaded tv

Whenever I start MC (displaying an Album-artist view), scrolling noticeably lags.
My machine is powerful enough. It may be the rendering of the album covers (and/or when an artist has multiple albums, you can see a "stack" below the top one).
This is *not* a major annoyance, but it is one that I deal with everyday.

I wish...

to be able add currently played song to favourites list using single button.


Now the explanation and context:

JRiver media is running on PC with Windows 10.

I hear nice song from my playlist.

I open JRemote2 on my Android phone... and would like to add this song to favourites list.

Now this song should be visible on favourites list on my PC when Windows version of JRiver is installed and run.

Theater View GUI.  We _must_ tune this up.  That long thread on using icons ...

I have a related feature request. I recently tried adding unicode characters like a clock🕑, calender 📅🗓 or a photo📷🖼 symbol to a thumbnail text. Despite using an appropriate font (Segoe UI Emoji or Segoe UI Symbol), MC couldn't display them. I assume the reason is that MC doesn't support color fonts yet. Would be a great addition, since these kind of symbols are very useful as they can be displayed next to a duration, date, etc. While the same can probably be done using the img tag, that requires additional resources for sharing. Fonts are already installed everywhere.

Fun fact: These symbols work in the post editor I'm currently writing in, but are not showing up in the preview.
Edit: But, they do work after posting.

Mostly MCWS-y stuff
 

> Get JRVR profiles (array of profiles, either with basic identifying information or the entire profile including settings)

> Set JRVR profile for session. Set a 'default' profile to use in a zone for all playback until JRiver is closed or the setting is changed.

> Read DSP Profile Config

> Change DSP Profile Setting

When defining JRemote Views you can select from any Standard views already defined in the desktop app, when you select Add you get a menu to select from including "Library Items from Standard View" which then displays all menu /view options

Yes but there I can only select from very simple standard views, I silll can’t use one of my own JRemote views to just modify a small part of it. That’s what I want.

I am missing something ,

I added and customized the views for Classical and Rock , then I further added Custom views for Artists (a top 50 List), Artists (all) and so on . All neatly organized in a tree view

When you add a view to JRemote , all these views are available for selection. I topped using the standard View Set as delivered with MC years ago as I set up my own Customized Views

Create a new view , test it , perfect it import it into JRemote

My JRemote directly mirrors my desktop setup

Simply using the quality of JRiver with its powerful studio DSP with audio players that don't support VST plugins, convolution etc, for example.

At this time the JRiver WDM driver (virtual audio driver) is limited to 192kHz.

That’s the reason for our different experience. I didn’t create JRiver views and mirrored them in JRemote views, I just created JRemote views and now can only use JRiver views as template, but not the previous JRemote views I created.

I just need JRiver as server basis, I don’t work much with views there.

Would be great if also existing JRemote views could be used as template for new JRemote views….or simply be copied/pasted.

This is a list of possible changes in MC32  Nothing is certain yet.  I'll start another list later so users can let us know what they want.

-----------

Prevent album uploads and artist uploads


Yeah, I've wondered about that.

It is A Good Thing that this guideline is implemented more strictly.

How about one wish per product? ...

For JRemote, persistence of the view type (list, list w/thumbnails, album covers) for at least the top-level of Audio selections.  For the modern portion of my collection, I like a full album cover view.  For the classical music section (organized by composer currently), I'd like just a list.  The view type of lower levels can then inherit that choice (if no persistence is available at lower levels).

For MC, the ability to have newlines (and possibly horizontal lines) inserted, for visual separation between groups (described in earlier posts of mine and others).

Interesting comment about particles and DVDA.  As a general rule, I would love to see some kind of method to rip and listen to DVD Audio files.   Yes, it can be done with DVD Audio Extractor but it would be great to have it here.  Maybe add compatibility for the DVDA plug-ins for Foobar?   

Perhaps the next few are already in the product so if so please attribute that to user error.

1)  Add a simple keystroke to select an entire playlist (not just one song) and remove that playlist in its entirety. 

2) Extend one's chosen ripping file management style (track, artist, song, etc) and apply those same rules when extracting files from a FLAC file or what have you with a cues sheet.  In my case those extractions are titled very differently than my CD rips.

3) Create a simple tool to create cue sheets by dragging files into a playlist and then generating a cue file from that.   

4) Indulge the DSD fans with some more love as described above.   

5) Make it simple to properly decode old CD files with the emphasis applied.
