JRiver Media Center 20.0.6 for Debian
« on: August 12, 2014, 05:49:54 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.6.deb

20.0.6 (8/12/2014)

1. New: File path dialogs for Options (requires gtk 2.0)
2. Changed: Retry audio device enumeration on failure. Fixes troubles finding devices on ubuntu x64.
3. Changed: More tweaks to eventing.

19.0.160 (8/5/2014)

1. Changed: (again) the root window updating. Reverted somewhat to the previous behavior. Only the right side, bottom and bottom right corner work properly for resize.

19.0.156 (7/24/2014)

1. Fixed: One of the types of HTTP redirects was not being handled properly. This fixes troubles with some internet streams and one particular DLNA controller.
2. Fixed: The ALSA Buffer time and Period time parameters were not being used.
3. NEW: The ALSA output format can be fixed to a specific type (i.e. S32_LE) as well as auto detected (previous method).
4. Fixed: Window Size/Position issues in some dialogs (i.e. dsp studio sample rate selection).
5. NEW: Rudimentary portable drive (handheld) support (no autodetect).
6. Changed: Root window move/resize. Position/Size isn't updated until left mouse button is released. Prevents jumping, etc. This will likely change again...

19.0.152 (7/15/2014)

1. Fixed: Detection of mountpoints under /media and /mnt, treated as "drives"
2. NEW: Implemented the functions which allow "Rename, move and copy files" to work.
3. NEW: For deleting files from the library, moving to the recycle (Trash) bin implemented. Since this is desktop dependent you'll need to symlink ~/Trash to your desktop trash directory.

19.0.148 (7/3/2014)

1. Fixed: Multichannel mapping.

19.0.146 (6/26/2014)

1. Fixed: Watched folders now see subfolders properly.

19.0.144 (6/24/2014)

1. NEW: Implemented DSD over DoP. Tested with Mytek Stereo192 DSD DAC.
2. NEW: Added S24LE audio format.
3. Fixed: Registration issues (losing previous registration, etc).
4. Fixed: Socket handle leak.

19.0.143 (6/19/2014)

1. NEW: Added DPMS control to the HDMI screen option under audio.
2. Fixed: Registration issues (losing previous registration, etc).
3. Fixed: WOL Mac address were not being supplied to the access key server properly.

19.0.141 (6/13/2014)

1. Changed: Default volume mode is now "Internal" rather than "System".
2. Changed: Added command line switch for restoring license from an MJR file (/RestoreFromFile).
3. Changed: Tooltips that obscure underlying clickable fields removed.
4. NEW: Screensaver control enabled (turn on hdmi screen option under Audio).
5. NEW: Added command line alsacap to the debian package (in MC's shared library location).
6. Changed: Audio driver configuration changed to be more like windows/mac.
7. NEW: The ALSA driver selection can be made from the WebRemote control panel.
8. NEW: DSD Encoder working.

19.0.138 (6/6/14)

1. Fixed: Asynchronous crashing triggered by Media Network being enabled.
2. Fixed: Ratings.
3. Fixed: Bug in eventing.
4. NEW: Licensing is now enabled. The trial period starts.

19.0.135 (5/9/2014)

1. Fixed: The watch folders function.
2. Fixed: A memory leak from above.

19.0.134 (5/15/2014)

1. New: The font dialog is enabled (Options->Tree and View->Select Font). You can choose from the default Lucida, GNU Unifont and a user defined font string. The User Defined font string has to be acceptable to XLoadQueryFont. If the font isn't found, MC will fall back to Lucida and then Mutt-Clearlyu. The font height can also be trimmed manually. Height in pixels of trim.

19.0.133-2 (5/12/2014)

1. Change: Reverted from requirement for dynamic ssl and crypto libs added inadvertently in 19.0.133

19.0.133 (5/9/2014)

1. Changed: The font loads orders of magnitude faster.
2. Fixed. The maximum size calculated for the font characters were not being calculated properly at load time resulting in imprecise placement of elements in the MC window.

19.0.129-3 (4/22/2014)

1. Changed: libcurl system shared lib dependencies reduced.
2. Fixed: Internet reader timeout.

19.0.129 (4/21/2014)

1. Changed: libcurl integrated into the JRReader. Greatly reduces dependencies and uses a newer version of libcurl. Needs testing to see if anything is missing and to check compatibility with distro's (unsupported) other than debian wheezy.
2. Changed: xz compression on the .deb greatly reduces download size.

19.0.128 (4/15/2014)

1. NEW: System volume control and mute control if supported by the device (controls the PCM output). The mixer is discovered during audio device config (reselect your audio device to get it).

19.0.124-5 (3/27/2014)

1. Changed: More maximize/not maximized work.


19.0.124 (3/25/2014)

1. Fixed: Use 64 bit stat functions. Fixes problems using mounted windows (and CIFS NAS) filesystems. Probably also fixes other random file problems.
2. Fixed: Moving the main window works properly now.
3. Changed: Method of screen position saving restoring (again). Needs testing.
4. Fixed: Resizing works (as long as nothing is playing).
5. Fixed: Restores maximized/not maximized state upon start.

19.0.122 (3/14/2014)

1. Fixed: Remembers size and position on re-open. Needs testing on different platforms / window managers.
2. Changed: The method used to allow moving/resizing. Needs testing on different platforms / window managers.

19.0.121 (3/11/2014)

1. Fixed: Memory leak introduced in 19.0.119
2. NEW: WMA playback support.
3. Fixed: HTTP authorization tokens weren't being done properly, so that only one server authorization was stored at a time.
4. Changed: Timeout advanced to July 10th 2014.
5. Fixed: Internet reader, HTTP redirects were not handled properly.
6. NEW: Use backing store for windows if the server supports it (UI speed increase).
7. NEW: Mouse cursor changes (on click) for main window move/resize. Intend this to work on hover in the future.
8. Changed: More tweaking of the tooltip and transient window hints (need feedback).

19.0.119 (2/28/2014)

1. Fixed: Movement and resizing of MediaCenter works properly now.
2. Fixed: HTTP authentication was broken in build 19.0.118.

19.0.118 (2/21/2014)

1. Fixed: The linux network reader fixed to handle custom methods (needed for DLNA events).
2. Fixed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, wouldn't move on to the next track in a playlist properly.
3. Fixed: Tooltip windows to work better with more window managers. Still not transparent however.

19.0.117 (2/14/2014)

1. Fixed: Enabled filesystem statistics gathering function.
2. Fixed: Allow : in filename (was filtered out by windows code).
3. Fixed: Remove special treatment of UNC style paths (windows code).
4. Fixed: Remove special treatment of . in pathnames, i.e. foo./bar (windows code).
5. Fixed: The fixing of the documents path causes the automatic database backup to occur. (~/Documents/JRiver ....)

19.0.116 (2/10/2014)

1. Fixed: Prevent tooltips and transparent windows from stealing input focus. Fixes upper right corner search box.

19.0.115 (2/5/2014)

1. Changed: Completely reworked the linux ALSA audio output device control to be more efficient and reduce latency.
2: NEW: Allow advanced user control of the latency.

19.0.112 (1/30/2014)

1. Fixed: Stability improvements.
2. Changed: Moved timeout to April 9th 2014

19.0.109 (1/23/2014)

1. Fixed: Workaround a curl bug that could cause crashing on slow dns lookups.
2. Fixed: Window focus issues. Need feedback.

So far so good!   Having the file picker again is nice.

Other than changing the paths, my Fedora installer worked fine.

License restore required the command line method.  Trying to enter the v20 key just brought me to the restore page on the web site.  It had worked in v19.

Bob:  Are you going to start putting the v20 builds in the v20 directory on the web server now?   This one's in v19.
Are we done for v19 builds now?

Dialogs solid here so far with GTK on openSUSE Factory x86-64.  Tried "Open Media", import/export smartlists, backup/restore library....nice.

(this is a machine used for dev work with GTK# so all that stuff was already loaded...fwiw)

Wow, Last.FM almost works now. It launches the default browser prompting for access, however after you allow it MC20 doesn't update with account credentials after clicking OK in the MC dialog it seems.

New dialogs work fine here on Arch in Gnome 3 (although they pop under sometimes, but I think that's just Gnome being Gnome).

I'm not sure what's going on with the license but I know there is some issue there.
There isn't a structure under v20 yet and I was in a hurry so I put it in 19.
The next one should end up in 20.

Yeah I was really hoping to get that working today but no luck. It may have something to do with a libcurl limitation...

Very strange reproducible audio stack issue:

1) MC is set to internal volume and playing a song;
2) I start a movie playing in VLC.
3) As expected, I get no sound from the movie, but VLC's volume control now controls the audio volume from JRiver's output!

Testing environment is Arch Linux running Gnome 3, JRiver is set to output to "ALSA: front" targeting the built-in soundcard.  I can test some other desktop enviroments if that would be helpful.

I suppose thats very well possible if VLC controls the system volume.

I'm pretty sure that if you have Gnome 3, you have Pulse installed and active. I'm also quite sure that that will grab any audio, including stuff sent to front or other hardware devices.

I posted a workaround here, that device should be clear from any Pulse interference.

I see importing Library and Settings from a Windows version now works, being able to browse is very nice :).

Obviously all the file paths are wrong, showing as D:\etc

So, I change the option to Update database to point to new location (no rename or move).

Find: D:/
Replace: /mnt/Media/

The path changed from:
D:\Music\Artist\Album\Track
to
/mnt/Media/Music/Album//Track

Where is that second forward slash coming from? I fixed it by running the find and replace a second time and replaced '//' with '/'.

Something else has changed ...

Code: [Select]
$ aplay -L
null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
pulse
    PulseAudio Sound Server
ud501
    Teac UD501 USB DAC
st
    ST HW DIRECT
sysdefault:CARD=ST
    Xonar ST, Multichannel
    Default Audio Device
front:CARD=ST,DEV=0
    Xonar ST, Multichannel
    Front speakers
....

MC no longer sees the 'st' device. The 'sysdefault:CARD=ST' doesn't work. Front: device works though.

Also, sometimes when I start MC it sees no devices at all. I'll get a 'playback can't be started' message and when I go check the playback settings all I see is 'more'. I'll restart MC and all devices are back.

My license info is gone, as are all my settings and library. I see it created a new directory for Media Center 20, but it would be nice if it migrated the version 19 settings.

The DSP dialog window had it's content scaled for the wrong window size. I resized the box after which it corrected this, but when I opened a resample pulldown menu the entire window froze. The menu wouldn't close and MC froze up. I had to kill the process and restart MC.

Yes, just backup the library (File, Library, Backup) en restore in 20 (File, Library, Restore).

You can also just copy "~/.jriver/Media Center 19" directory to "~/.jriver/Media Center 20".

Good catch, I thought I'd successfully disabled pulseaudio, but it snuck back into my process tree.  Thanks for the workaround (although it sounds like some parts aren't working correctly at the moment?).

With the workaround I don't think there's any need to disable or remove pulse at all, it will often cause more problems than that it will solve. Pulse actually works pretty well for what it was designed to do for the most part. For the applications that need bitperfect or better audio quality in general, just use the device created with the workaround.

There are also tweaks for Pulse to make it use a better resampler and/or higher sampling rates.

(although it sounds like some parts aren't working correctly at the moment?). 

I don't think that's a problem with the workaround although I'm not sure. I need to check whether other applications have trouble seeing it as well.

With a previous version it definitely worked, I used it while troubleshooting DSD playback with the Teac DAC. The device created with the workaround worked with MC.

Just tested some other applications; VLC, Audacity, they all see all devices including the ones created with the workaround.

Can't imagine why but it seems MC doesn't like them anymore.

You can run 19 and 20 side by side to check the settings.
The device detection didn't change between 19.0.160 and 20.0.6 except for adding retry on failure in 20.0.6

I just installed version 20, but after start, mc crashes with a segmentation fault:
Did you try the OpenSUSE thread?

It didn't change with the transition to v.20, it's been like this for a few versions.

There's something going on though, sometimes MC starts with no devices in its device list, it just mentions 'more', then after a restart it sees the list again, with the exception of my custom devices, 'ST' and 'STHW'.

Hi Jim,

it was my fault. One link was still pointing to the 19libs. After correcting this setting, MC 20 starts.

Getting odd behavior with the library. Started off ok, imported ~13000 files and good to go. Then I attempted to import settings from v19. MC20 didnt like the file. And since then, it has a blank library. I attempted to import again, which completed but no files were present i.e. no albums etc. Tried again with a new library, same thing.

It appears that there is more breakage in the alsa libraries for the device list hinting when you do it card by card on some systems.
I think I'm going to revert to the old method. Unforch this is known to occasionally blowup on x86 libasound 2.0.0. It does seem to get all devices on all systems though. Perhaps the authors will fix it some day.
