JRiver Media Center 19.0.72 for Debian
« on: November 07, 2013, 05:11:11 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter-19.0.72.deb

Purchase link

19.0.72 (11/7/2013)

1. Faster: Unlocked SSE acceleration in image / drawing engine providing faster performance, and better looking rendering.
2. Changed: More dependency tweaking for MultiArch.
3. Changed: Program has an icon now.
4. Changed: Configuration files are now UTF-8. To revert to an earlier release you must restore settings from a MC backup.

19.0.70-1 (11/5/2013)

1. Changed: Text drawing better supports international characters.
2. Changed: More precise dependencies for package installation.

19.0.70 (11/4/2013)

1. Changed: Timeout changed to Dec 8 2013

19.0.65 (10/29/2013)

1. Changed: An icon now appears in the Unity dock (and others) when minimized. No title yet ;)
2. Fixed: http authentication. Allows Library server auth to work.
3. Changed: Removed ogg support until the input plugin is repaired.

19.0.62 (10/25/2013)

1. Fixed: Windows title. Shows when minimized.
2. Changed: Program binary name is now mediacenter19 to allow side-by-side versions to run properly.
3. Changed: Updated debian build package to be more to spec. To replace the current version first remove the existing version (will not affect library or settings). Do this by: sudo dpkg -r mediacenter. Then install the new build. For non-debian systems, remove /usr/bin/mediacenter.

19.0.61 (10/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Pause now works with ALSA playback.
2. Fixed: Dragging the main window to position it was not working nicely.
3. Fixed: Menu tracking and keyboard navigation was not working properly.
4. NEW: Added desktop files and icon.

19.0.60 (10/22/2013)

1. Changed: Better ALSA device enumeration, should help to coexist with pulseaudio.

19.0.59 (10/21/2013)

1. Fixed: SSDP discovery stopped working after a short time.

19.0.57 (10/17/2013)

1. Changed: Prevent message boxes from popping up in /mediaserver mode.
2. Fixed: DLNA, problems with some http 1.1 devices.

19.0.56 (10/10/2013)

1. Changed: Attempt to back off requirements to SSE2.
2. NEW: If the default lucida font isn't found will fall back to a different font (requires the xfonts-100dpi package)

19.0.54 (10/08/2103)

1. NEW: Added support for 24-bit ALSA devices.
2. Fixed: When playback failed to start, it could lead to a crash.
3. Fixed: Mouse move tracking was not working, causing many UI issues.
4. Fixed: Typing in an edit control that showed suggestions could segfault.

19.0.53 (10/07/2013)

1. Fixed: Window minimize, maximize, and restore work.
2. NEW: Compiled without SSE support. Need Feedback.

19.0.52 (10/4/2013)

1: NEW: Fallback to S16_LE sound if the ALSA driver doesn't support S32_LE.
2: Fixed: Font spacing and switched to Lucinda.
3: Fixed: Added more package dependencies.

19.0.51 (10/3/2013)

I still occasionally get a segfault when going from play to stopped and back again.
The menus are a little too transparent now.  Makes them hard to see.

Are you guys ready for general bug reporting yet?

Yeah, I can confirm the menu transparency 'issue', but I believe that's just part of the work-in-progress. I still see the little glitching white box on the desktop top left by the Unity dash in Ubuntu 13.10 (causes glitches in MC there too) and you can't pin the running icon to the Unity dash. Other than that, love the progress! Keep up the good work guys!

Operating system: SUSE 12.3 x64


What doesn't work:

1. The BROWS-buttons won't start the browser
2. the char-set does not allow to enter symbols like "]" or "\" etc at intern. keyboards. The backslash is important when importing windows-libraries and you try to adapt the data passes to unix 
3. none of the skins but NOIRE show the play-buttons.
4. not possible to access the burning device
5. not to many windows have titles
6. File locations can't be edited

Also, I can confirm the white glitch when a window pops up. Sometimes the background stays white and you see white char on white background. Hard to read!

But the program is improving step by step!

wow! Thanks. MC19 looks much nicer now, especially album covers. However, the background of menus is now transparent instead of white.
Anyway, keep up the good job. The money I spent on the early bird license seems to have been a great investment :)

Maybe because 19.0.70-1 wasn't fully installed?
You could do
dpkg -r mediacenter19
then
dpkg -i MediaCenter-19.0.72.deb

I have to admit that this is the first Linux build I've tried. I know there is a lot of work to be done but I will throw some things out there that I see right away that aren't drawing issues:

Rating field does not display correctly
Can't enter the font settings to change the font
System volume control does not work (internal is fine)
Looking up a library server by access key does not work (when I point it at my hostname, it's OK)
I frequently cannot enter the options menu Menu was opening but it was lost off screen for some reason
Gapless playback kills playback after the current song ends

I never had 70-1 installed. I went from 70 to 72.

I removed all traces of all versions and installed 72 but had the same issue. Also DLNA didn't work with 72.

Now I'm back on 70 and all is well.

Can confirm both of these as well, but have to say I echo the comments that the investment has been well worth it. You guys seem to be making great progress with this - keep up the good work.

The about box says 19.0.72.

Won't install. Something wrong with dependencies on Mint 15. In spite of xfonts-75 being installed,

sudo apt-get install xfonts-75dpi:all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
xfonts-75dpi is already the newest version.

Install complains with..

"Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: xfonts-75dpi:all"

Suggestions?

jefierro: install a package manager like synaptic, search for xfonts-75dpi and install it from there. Then try to reinstall MC again. You should be good to go.

Thanks for the help guys, xfonts 75 and 100dpi are installed on the system, as stated above, I have a working MC 72 copy on a x64 13.1 ubuntu box, just trying to set up a test DNLA rig using an old laptop. i'll try to manually install, but i can't seem to find the extra time.
I'm so glad I can finally use MC on my favourite OS. I can't wait to see it on a stable release soon.

72 DLNA works fine here.

About box says v72. Good.

DLNA renderer doesn't appear in other instances of MC running on Windows unless local library on Linux has at least one track.

Here is a weird message I received just running apt-get upgrade. MC is already installed and working but I still receive this message.


apt-get upgrade
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mediacenter19 : Depends: xfonts-75dpi:all but it is not installable
                 Depends: xfonts-100dpi:all but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try using -f.

I can confirm with above problems, Kubuntu 13.10 and I am also getting an "Error: Cannot satisfy dependencies".

When I attempt to install the fonts x-75 and x-100 via apt-get with the below command:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xfonts-75dpi:i386
it states they are no installation candidates.

Great news, everyone! Just run the below command without the :i386 and the dependency will be satisfied.

As in:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install xfonts-75dpi
I can confirm with above problems, Kubuntu 13.10 and I am also getting an "Error: Cannot satisfy dependencies".

Debian wheezy is multiarch. If you attempt to install on a distro that isn't multiarch you will have trouble (you'll also likely have system library troubles).

The xfonts-75dpi:all dependency means that there shouldn't be a architecture based dependency for the  fonts (they are not architecture dependent).

The default for the rest of the package requirements is determined by the architecture which is set to i386.

This was tested on ubuntu 13.10 x64 and debian wheezy i386.

This isn't documented in the deb packaging instructions very well and the reason why it only shows up with the fonts is that they are the only non-architecture dependency in the deb.
