JRiver Media Center for Mac version 19.0.47 -- Available Here
« on: September 27, 2013, 03:44:35 pm »

This is the latest release of Media Center 19 for Mac.  Please post bugs here.  Please start a new thread for anything requiring discussion.  Non-bug posts will be deleted.

Download:
http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter190047.dmg

CAUTION -- This is an early build of MC19 for Mac.  Please read what others say before downloading.  It may be less stable than MC18 for some time to come.  Back up your current MC library before installing.

19.0.47 (9/27/2013)

1. Changed: Increased default internal audio buffer size and provide more user control over internal and hardware buffering.

19.0.46 (9/26/2013)

First build of MC19 for Mac.
1. Changed: Uses the Boost library for regular expressions which is more powerful than the previously used Posix library.

18.0.219 (9/26/2013)

1. Fixed: Radio buttons were not working.
2. Fixed: Locate > On Disk (external) was not working.
3. Fixed: If Media Center's window position got placed off the top of the screen, it could not be moved back into position.  Now a bad position is fixed at start-up time.

18.0.218 (9/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Files view in tree would not show any files when a folder name in the path contained a bracket character '[]'.
2. Fixed: Mute for system volume was not working.
3. NEW: Next/Previous keyboard media keys are now working.  When held down, they fire FastForward/Rewind events.
4. Fixed: Horizontal scroll direction was the opposite of the Mac 'Natural' scroll direction.
5. Changed: Web links bar is now available (Amazon, AMG, Wiki, etc.).
6. Fixed: Media Center was trying (and failing) to update at program startup. The startup check has been removed.

18.0.217 (9/9/2013)

1. Changed: When media files stored on network drives cannot be found (drive not mounted), files are no longer removed from library - just marked as unavailable.
2. Fixed: Thumbnail drawing could cause crashes on some Macs running 10.6.8 OSX (and maybe others?).
3. Changed: Re-enabled skin effects dialog since MMX functions have been rewritten to utilize SSE instructions.
4. Fixed: In Panes view, file path locations were not working as a panes category for browsing.

18.0.216 (9/5/2013)

1. Fixed: Automatic library backups were not taking place.
2. Fixed: Audio input configuration under: "Tools / Options / Audio / Advanced / Configure input plugin..."  was not working at all.
3. Fixed: System volume control was still not working with some USB DAC's (didn't make it into the last build).
4. Fixed: In Media Network options, Web Gizmo appearance option wasn't working.
5. Changed: Several options were being shown even though they didn't apply to the Mac version.

18.0.215 (8/29/2013)

1. Fixed: 'Tools' main menu option was not honoring the current file selection (would show 'No files selected').
2. Fixed: Cmd-Q now quits the application.
3. Fixed: On OSX 10.6, the Help menu was not working.
4. Fixed: Close & minimize buttons were located incorrectly in mini-view mode.
5. Fixed: System volume was not properly controlling the volume on some USB connected DAC's (i.e. Dragonfly).

18.0.214 (8/27/2013)

1. NEW: Moved application menu to the normal 'Mac' location at the top of the screen.  Still some skinning and positioning work to be done.

18.0.213 (8/21/2013)

1. Fixed: Right clicking in playback display window and choosing "Tag" would cause a crash.
2. Fixed: Filepath() was not functioning properly with user-supplied paths (e.g. filepath(//Users/johnt//foo.mp3)).
3. Fixed: Cover art in Action Window could not be copied to/from the clipboard.
4. Fixed: The "Export playlist" option to use relative paths was not working.
5. Fixed: Apparent z-order problem with auto-import results dialog: it would be invisible and cause the app to look hung.

18.0.212 (8/19/2013)

1. Changed: Improved skin looks more "Mac like".
2. Changed: Sharper text font drawing.
3. Fixed: Custom column sorting window would show up empty.
4. Fixed: MC could fail to load ID3 tag data in AIFF and WAVE files.
5. Fixed: Importing of mp4 files that had a copyright atom could cause MC to crash.

18.0.211 (7/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Semi-colon in path names could cause import to not work.
2. NEW: Audio files can be played from Finder.
3. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).
4. Fixed: DLNA bug where SetNextAVTransportURI gets called at least once even when disabled.
5. Fixed: DLNA polling interval bug, reduce chatter.
6. Changed: DLNA handle bug from some renderers which mis-spell NOT_IMPLEMENTED!
7. Changed: Dutch language translation updated (thanks bennyd).

18.0.207 (7/3/2013)

1. Fixed: Mouse scroll wheel wasn't working on OSX 10.6 systems.
2. Fixed: On OSX 10.6 systems, it would appear to hang when trying to quit the program.
3. Fixed: Downloading files larger than 2GB could fail.
4. Changed: Tuned how the time remaining is reported in the Action Window during downloads (to work better with large downloads and to be more concise).
5. Fixed: Album and artist fields in "Podcast tag and file renaming rules" now work as expected.
6. Fixed: Ogg Vorbis now fills its compression field with "Ogg Vorbis".
7. Fixed: When converting some FLAC files to ogg, it will no longer tag as "ogv"

18.0.206 (6/28/2013)

1. Fixed: Bold and Italic modes chosen in font picking dialog did not get used.
2. Fixed: Font picking dialog did not initialize to the current font settings.
3. Fixed: Text was unreadable in disabled text edit fields.
4. Fixed: Once Cover View was selected, the top line of the display with the 'leave cover view' button was inaccessible so you couldn't exit cover view.

18.0.202 (6/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Some ALAC files (e.g. those produced by 'Sound Studio 3') were not playable because of a strange looking 'alac' mp4 atom.  We now ignore the strange data.
2. Fixed: Media Center was not honoring the typeface chosen in the font picking dialog.

18.0.201 (6/21/2013)

1. Fixed: Trackpad scrolling did not support the fine scrolling mode, so it was difficult to scroll to a particular item in a list.
2. Fixed: Web page titles on tabs were showing extraneous text.
3. NEW: Support for choosing text fonts using the Options dialog 'Select font...' item under Tree & View.
4. Fixed: Tag saving to APE files was not working (Mac only).
5. Changed: Switched the default audio buffering method to 'Hardware default' to work better with devices that don't properly support hardware buffer size changes (configurable in Options > Audio > Output mode settings...).
6. Fixed: Typing into the Search box could cause crashes when a MC Windows library had been transferred to Mac and it contained long field values (e.g. Lyrics field).
7. Changed: When a file has no Replay Gain, a Replay Gain of -10dB will be used if no other files in Playing Now are analyzed (otherwise the average of analyzed files is used).

Getting: Media Center 19 can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

I know how to open, just FYI.

MC window goes to full screen and can only be re-sized by clicking on the green dot (full screen toggle).

The only thing that seemed a bit buggy was that when I imported the library, I got a notice that 883 files were not imported, yet they showed up in the library and play with no issues.

MC 19 sounds incredibly good, by the way.

I wish I could be of a help with a log file but as soon as I start MC19 I get the beachball.

Thanks - just downloaded the latest build and DSD out conversion is working! Have only spend five minutes with it so far, but appreciate the quick fix.

When I click on "Documents" in the left pane it locks up.  Can't even force quit.

I use MC 18 only thru DLNA. Therefore I don't use the jriver engine which is not activated for dlna connection.
Do i have any interest to upgrade to MC19 SOundQualitywise ?

MC imports files other than Audio files.  I have almost 30k image and video files imported, which show up under various Smartlists.

Lots of crashes, but more important, DSD DoP mode plays static.  The "lock" light is on so the DAC sees the PCM framing just getting passed garbage.

A DSD problem was just fixed in the Windows version, but I don't think the fix is in this build.

If you continue to experience a crash, please start a thread with more details.

Actually Jim, and perhaps it is a different fix, this build fixed the issue I had with conversion (playback) of PCM files to DSD. Both this version and the previous are playing DSD files fine (DoP mode). I do realize it may vary by system.

Every time I try to add cover art from a file/folder, MC 19 locks up and I have to force quit.....it worked the first few times, but no luck now after many attempts, rebooting, etc.

Thanks,

Randy

Can any of the mods address this one?  I don't know anything about DLNA.

Using MC19 on my mac pro as a LS client. First time I've really used it since early MC19 builds. Feels better. I like the flatter design. Minimize, maximize buttons work nicely. I tried clicking around, adding tracks, replacing Playing Now with different music, flipping back and forward between different views, turning on Volume levelling and Adaptive volume. Everything feels nice and stable.

There are still a number of options related to Video in Options that need to be removed though.

Menus are a bit funky. You can't click on a menu to close it. You have to click somewhere on MC's main interface to do so.

This isn't a 'bug' but behavior that is odd.

I fire up MC19, then go and hurry up the media network.

As soon as my DAC comes up, the side bar "Playing from Main Library" drops down, unbidden.

It didn't used to do that.

I do like the auto-drop down into the previous selection (such as 'Panes', under 'Audio') instead of having to select it again…

I can not find the skin effects anymore; is that option still available?

I had it set to "invert" in MC18 and now I can not turn it off.

Sorry, that was unavailable, but will be available in the next build (today).
