18.0.193 (5/31/2013)

1. Fixed: Audio playback was not working correctly in build 192.

18.0.192 (5/30/2013)

1. Fixed: Media Center would appear frozen in certain cases where a pop-up dialog was showing underneath the app and MC would be unresponsive.
2. Fixed: FLAC reference code would crash when encoding when an estimated total size was provided to the encoder, the 'verify' option was enabled, and encoding duration exceeded the estimated duration.
3. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun).
4. Fixed: Stopping or switching tracks during Library Server client playback could lead to a crash.
5. Changed: When overwriting a Car Radio preset, the preset will default to using the same name.

18.0.191 (5/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Webview reload button didn't work and could cause crashes.
2. Fixed: Some local default web pages were missing.
3. Changed: Added more debug logging to try to determine cause of intermittent SSDP failures.

18.0.190 (5/23/2013)

1. Changed: Enhanced WebView to support intercepting link clicks for webradio playback.
2. Fixed: WebView would not get keyboard focus so you couldn't type into web forms.
3. Changed: Added the ability to select the output bitdepth when using Kernel Streaming (Options > Audio > Output mode settings...).
4. Changed: Updated Polish translation (thanks Janusz Grzybek).
5. Changed: Radio buttons will use multiple lines for their text when necessary instead of truncating the text (helps with large font sizes).
6. Changed: Updated the French language translation (thanks rlebrette).
7. Fixed: If a connection to a Library Server was sporadic, it could lead to cases where a link to external cover art could be lost.
8. Fixed: Mono ALAC files were not being parsed or played correctly.
9. Fixed: In some cases, 5.1 input was not working with the FLAC encoder.
10. Fixed: When using 'Gapped' playback mode, the gap would not be honored when switching hardware output formats (normally sample rate).
11. Fixed: The playback position could be incorrect when using a gapped playback mode.
12. Changed: When converting a file with a bitdepth greater than 24, the engine will convert to 24-bit (with dither) to feed the encoder (since few encoders support more than 24-bit files).
13. NEW: DSP Studio can be enabled during audio conversion (Library Tools > Convert Format), allowing resampling, channel mixing, convolution, etc.
14. Fixed: A rare crash when parsing certain MP4 audio files.

18.0.187 (5/17/2013)

1. Fixed: Importing or playing APE format files in OSX 10.6 would crash.
2. NEW:  Internal web browser support.  We still need to implement catching links so we can (for example) make web radio playback easier.
3. Changed: Audio Path will better show when a padded bitdepth (like 24-bit inside a 32-bit container) is in use.
4. Fixed: The phrase "JRSS Subwoofer (x Hz lowpass)" in Output Format configuration could not be translated.
5. Fixed: In some cases, 5.1 input was not working with the FLAC encoder.
6. Fixed: When using 'Gapped' playback mode, the gap would not be honored when switching hardware output formats (normally sample rate).
7. Fixed: The playback position could be incorrect when using a gapped playback mode.

18.0.182 (5/14/2013)

1. Fixed: Tagging in the action window could crash.

18.0.181 (5/10/2013)

1. Fixed: Some m4a and alac files would not import or play because of a mismatched sample count in the mp4 STTS header.  We now ignore this error since it shouldn't impact playback performance.
2. Fixed: Radio streams would 'click' every few seconds because metadata was not getting parsed out of the stream.

18.0.180 (5/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Tooltips were not showing properly in the last few builds.
2. Fixed: Clicking away from an in-place list edit control would not reliably stop the editing.
3. Fixed: DoP bitstreaming of DSD was not working with some devices.
4. Fixed: Hardware with complex buffer arrangement could crash when playing to only some of the channels.
5. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
6. Changed: Updated Polish translation (thanks Janusz Grzybek).
7. Changed: Czech language translation updated (thanks Johnny B).

Well just downloaded and installed v193 and sorry to say no resolution of my 2 issues. MC not responding to mouse clicks and SSDP server failing to start.

MC plays fine and JRemote is able to control playback OK.  But using the mouse, went to see if the SSDP service was running, it wasn't, tried to click on options to turn media network off and on again and MC wasn't responding to mouse clicks at all. All within 2 minutes of starting the program.

JRemote still able to control MC though.

A question. Is the activity log for the "home (library server)" supposed to be constantly recording events every second?

  • Where did I put my teeth?

The mouse pad on an Air works fine here.  I did see MC crash once when I tried to duplicate your problem with the mouse.  Next time it ran fine.

Play silence at startup for hardware synchronization does not work properly. Sample rate change does not work as previous versions anymore. I use 2 seconds to switch from 44 to 88 or higher and playback starts without the proper sample rate change. Song will start 1 second ahead.

I had to get back to version 182. Anything after that has that problem.

Hi

Firstly , I'm loving the way JRiver MC sounds, especially with my classic 50s Miles on Prestige ;0)

Bugs;

1.Sometimes playback cuts out. I get a message saying there has been an error and playback stops. It starts up agin OK when I play another file

2. Each time I load MC I have to select the output mode setting as it doesn't remember what I've set it to previously . I use an external Firewire MOTU interface

MC doesnt seem to be honoring the "Play gapless for sequential album tracks" when skipping to next and previous tracks.

Also I had a crash mid-way through playing a track. MC was connected as library server client. The file on the server was a flac. Option was ticked to play original file if on the same network, though I didnt check to see if that was actually happening. Standard core audio output through the standard mac pro sound card. Log attached.

When exiting MC I get the "Database will be opened in Read only mode". Maybe it is trying to save tag changes to the server as it is exiting. Pure speculation there. It happens twice in a row after exiting.

After 5 minutes of clicking around I lost the ability to click on anything. Playback buttons still highlighted as I hovered over them, but clicks stopped working. Mac Pro.

build .193 closing unexpectedly every time  I attempt to close the Options box.

Installed build 193, rebooted.
Started program - Tools - Options
Checked that no options had changed, clicked OK
Program closes.

Reopened and repeated several times - same result every time. I do not have to make any changes for the program to close.
Maximise button not working at this time.

Clipboard doesn't work: I cannot copy in and paste for. Sometimes auto-import doens't work properly e MC crashes. Many messages of error regarding lenght of file on tagging (but the name of file is short).

Startup synchronization only applies on first startup of hardware.

When hardware is reopened for a subsequent track, it will honor the standard / gapped fade duration for between track durations.  It does not apply startup silence in this case.

If you'd like to discuss, please start a new thread.

Thanks.

After talking about this a bit here, we'll change it to this in a coming build:
Changed: When switching tracks that require a hardware stop / start like on a sample rate change, the startup silence option will be honored (silence will be maximum of between track gap and startup silence gap).
