18.0.196 (6/13/2013)

1. Fixed: SSDP server would die after a varying period of time.

18.0.195 (6/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Library server syncing was not working from a Windows client to a Mac server.
2. NEW: Added support for OGG input format.
3. Changed: Car Radio automatically cleans up duplicate static playlists that used the same index.
4. Changed: SSDP advertisement could hard kill the advertiser in some cases, leaving sockets and/or the internet layer in an undefined state.
5. Fixed: Small icons could draw too large in a details list in some cases.
6. Changed: Basic HTML text formatting tokens like < b >, < font >, < u >, etc. will be supported in almost all text drawing (previously they only worked in some areas of the program).
7. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).
8. 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).
9. Fixed: Temp files created for .wvc files are now renamed to their final name when done when encoding Wavpack.
10. Fixed: Empty temp files are no longer created when encoding lossless Wavpack.  
11. Changed: Wavpack files now display compression information.  
12. Changed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, Media Center will use "error free" mode so that playback errors won't cause message boxes to display (since the controller is normally in a different place).

18.0.194 (6/4/2013)

1. Fixed: Media Center could become unresponsive to mouse clicks following showing of a pop-up error dialog. Mostly a problem on OSX 10.8.
2. Changed: Fullscreen modes are not always-on-top (please report any focus or z-ordering issues).

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).

This version immediately goes into the continual 5 second count up and repeat do-loop.

And then locks up, requiring a force quit.

All this on the Media Network.

Plays fine on USB
Well it plays fine for most of 1 track then it stops playing and locks up

I repeated the C&B, just now and have a better description.

after waiting 1hr, I fire MC back up.

I play an album over usb.
A little while later I see that my network DAC is up and available.

So I click on the network player and

BOOM
immediate swirling beachball and freeze.

Only, it just now unfroze itself and is now playing.

A protracted Do-Loop

EDIT: And now it seems like it has 'escaped' the do-loop and is functioning properly.
2nd EDIT:  I give up, back to 195

The spinning beach ball seems to be appearing very regularly in this build.

Took some time to pick up my network devices which previous builds have found in seconds.
Selected and started playing music to DAC via Optical out (Player) then clicked on renderer, beach ball appeared but program did not close, selected music via renderer UPnP/DLNA, playback on both devices playing OK.

Screen off after 10 mins, tapped spacebar to restore screen and the clicked to change view from DAC to renderer, beach ball appears and all locked up for several minutes. Screen off again, restored screen beach ball gone and can now change between Dac & renderer but leave for about a minute and try again and this time the beach ball appears and 6mins later is still there, unable to use keyboard to control. However, I can stop and change the music playing to the renderer (selected on renderer) as normal.

Beach ball disappeared after approx: 8 minutes.

Whilst beach ball is visible music to DAC stops playing, streaming continues. Switching to Media Network and selecting the SSDP server shows it is still running at 52m 59sec but the beach ball again reappears and the counter stops until beach ball disappears and the counter jumps to 1h 2m 12sec. Moving the mouse again brings up beach ball and music to DAC stops again.

It is now stopping playback without any input from the keyboard mid track, it then restarts after a period so this makes the build unusable for me at this time. I will attempt to grab a log file (should it be needed)and go back to build .195 for now.

Peter

Edit: Following info on this thread - http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=81358.0  - I have changed Volume setting from Disabled to System and this has improved matters somewhat but build .196 is still unusable. Beach ball appears and music stops at regular intervals of a few minutes.

Log file obtained, available if required.

I tried accessing the Option pages and the program closed on clicking the OK button to dismiss the Option box, so that problem is still there.

This build to have no menu started build 195.

Could you clarify what you mean by no menu?  Are you saying the program menu (File, Edit, View, etc.) is missing?

Thanks.

Yes, we're aware of this one.  You have to use the menu within the application.  We have it on the list to implement the top menu at some point.

The menu at the top of the display to the right of the Apple symbol has always contained just one item - "Media Center 18" which does nothing.

Ok Then it must be top of MC missing different choices included minimize close ect. Was there until build 195
And I did not make any new settings when updating. Again I am not to familiar with Mac, and remembered the choices on top by the MC 18. Anyway still missing!
Hope it makes sense  ;)

I have seen this before, on mine the window was behind the top bar, if you hover the cursor where the window and top bar meet can you click and drag the window down?

It worked for me, worth a try?
