https://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v19/latest/MediaCenter190163.dmg

19.0.163 (8/18/2014)

1. Fixed: Text in 'Drives & Devices' header was incorrect for Mac/Linux.
2. Changed: Non-working "3D-View" removed from new library view options. 
3. Fixed: Right clicking on a menu would result in a crash.
4. Fixed: Many bugs pertaining to multiple monitor usage, especially mixing regular and retina monitors.
5. Fixed: Category browsing was not working properly.
6. Changed: Reverted the real-time DSD ouput change from 19.0.152, which resulted in various playback problems.
7. Fixed: Audio playback could crash in some cases, or drop up to 5 seconds of audio on track switch.

19.0.154 (7/23/2014)

1. Fixed: MC will no longer use colons in the name when saving files on Mac.
2. Fixed: On OSX 10.6.8 systems running on older hardware, MC could crash on playback.
3. Fixed: When startup location was set to Drives & Devices, an annoying/repeating "Error creating CDManager control" was shown on MC startup.
4. Changed: Added the option (in audio / advanced) to ask for auto configuring output settings on playback error.

19.0.152 (7/18/2014)

1. Fixed: In place edit controls now respond to arrow keys.
2. Fixed: Date created field wouldn’t update correctly. M4A format files are re-created during tagging so will still show a current time for 'date created' after tagging.
3. Fixed: Stopping music when in integer mode would often not release the audio device.
4. NEW: DSD encoding support.
5. Fixed: Menus were not displayed right away when launching the program.
6. Fixed: Menus now display the command symbol instead of "Ctrl" for shortcuts.
7. NEW: Handheld device syncing support.  Supports USB mass storage devices.  Does not support MTP mode.
8. Fixed: Some MC components specified a higher SSE level than some older Mac computers support.  May have caused crashes on some older systems.

19.0.144 (6/26/2014)

1. Fixed: m3u8 playlists were not importing.
2. Fixed: Paste tagging was not working.
3. Changed: Improved messaging when a license for the wrong platform is restored. Now, if a user tries to install a Windows license on a Mac, a clear error message is displayed.
4. Fixed: Multi-channel .wma files now work on Mac.
5. Fixed: The caps lock key was not working.
6. NEW: Media Server mode can now be enabled (Tools / Advanced Tools / Media Server...).  This runs Media Center with no UI and displays an icon on the status bar at upper right.
7. NEW: Media Center can now be started automatically at login time (Tools / Options / Startup / Run on Mac startup).
8. Fixed: Dialog boxes now respond to Escape and Enter keys.

19.0.131 (4/30/2014)

1. Fixed: Web radio stream playback was eating up way too much cpu.
2. Fixed: System sleep is now always disabled while Media Center is playing, including DLNA playback.
3. Fixed: XML playlist exports from iTunes were not importing because of 'file://localhost/' embedded in filenames.
4. Fixed: File rename & copy was producing duplicate library entries when processing filenames containing international characters.
5. Fixed: M3U playlist exports from iTunes were not importing because of line ending issues.

19.0.124 (4/8/2014)

1. Fixed: Some WMA lossless files would play at wrong speed and/or with static.
2. Fixed: Installing non-supported VST plugins (e.g. older 32bit only ones) would cause PackageInstaller to crash and no error was shown in Media Center.
3. Fixed: When adding a new VST plugin, the file selection dialog would show up behind Media Center.

19.0.123 (4/2/2014)

1. Changed: Reinstated standard Mac Quit menu option.
2. NEW: Support for 64 bit VST audio plugins in DSP Studio.  From "Manage Plug-ins / Add VST" select the Plug-in package ending in ".VST" (usually in /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST).

19.0.122 (3/17/2014)

1. Fixed: The date tag was being read incorrectly in WMA files.
2. Fixed: WMA lossless wasn't working.

19.0.121 (3/12/2014)

1. Fixed: Duplicate menus were being shown if you activated the left-most item and dragged over one of the other items.
2. Changed: Got rid of "Quit" menu option which was redundant with "Exit" option on File menu. Cmd-Q still works for exiting program.
3. Fixed: WMA files showed incorrect bitrate in player display window.
4. Changed: Retina Mode (View -> Size -> Retina Mode) will now stay enabled between program runs.  Before you had to enable it each time you started Media Center.
5. Fixed: In Retina mode, main menu dropdowns would partially cover the main menu.
6. Fixed: In Retina mode, the blurred 'alpha' background behind menus was offset from the actual location of the background.
7. Fixed: In Retina mode, the DSP Studio windows looked funny - the window was much too big with lots of empty space around the DSP options.

19.0.120 (3/4/2014)

1. NEW: WMA decoding.  Window Media files can now be imported and played.  Tags are read-only at this point.

19.0.119 (2/27/2014)

1. Changed: Changed UDP socket Accept function to use 'select' rather than 'kqueue/kevent'.  Trying to eliminate application hang at shutdown.

19.0.118 (2/24/2014)

1. Fixed: License restores were not working with build 117.

19.0.117 (2/19/2014)

1. Fixed: Playback of AIFF files with unknown 'chunk' types over library server would fail to play.
2. Fixed: MC license no longer needs to be restored whenever the Mac computer name changes.
3. Fixed: Fill properties from filename using Template was showing full path rather than just filename.
4. Fixed: Enabled filesystem statistics gathering function.
5. Fixed: Allow : in filename (was filtered out by windows code).
6. Fixed: Remove special treatment of UNC style paths (windows code).
7. Fixed: Remove special treatment of . in pathnames, i.e. foo./bar (windows code).
8. Fixed: SACD ISOs were always detected with external changes and their metadata re-imported during auto-import, overwriting any changes in the library.
9. Changed: Updated Japanese language file (thanks Tsuchiya Kazuo).
10. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).
11. Fixed: Added list member null checking to file stacks code.  MC was crashing on running stack error checking.
12. Fixed: Potential crashes in BufferingInternetReader. Seen on Mac when playing high-def files with memory playback on Library Server clients.
13. Changed: Updated Slovak language file (thanks Peter Lukac).
14. Fixed: Directory presets in some dialogs had the wrong (Windows) type of directory separator slashes.

19.0.103 (1/10/2014)

1. Fixed: iTunes playlists were not importing correctly.
2. Fixed: Debug logging was always re-enabled at startup regardless of user setting.
3. Fixed: Added right-click menu in display view to allow display type and cover art style choices.
4. Fixed: Empty directories were not getting removed following file deletions.
5. Fixed: Very small FLAC files were failing playback (e.g. Test silence files smaller than 64k bytes).

I'm like a skipping record:

When MC's internal volume is disabled it still doesn't pass the volume key commands through to the OS.

Would you mind elaborating?  To test, should MC be in "Internal Volume" or "System Volume" mode?  What happens when you use the volume buttons, and what should happen instead?  Thanks.

"Disabled Volume" mode.

If volume control is disabled in MC, they should be passed to the OS.  They are not, they are captured by MC and of course do nothing.

So next comes the question why not use "System Volume"? The reason being I want to use the OSX's fine volume adjustment feature.  <Shift> + <Option> + <Volume Key> to control volume in very small step.  If MC did fine volume adjustment when it sees the <Shift><Option> modifier keys, I would be just as happy I guess.

The volume keys should be able to control the system volume when Media Center isn't in focus at least.  This is the behavior of the Windows version.  Thanks for the report!  We'll look into it.

Hi  I am a new user currently working from the latest trial version.  When I try to move tracks across from one view into another, media centre 'closes unexpectedly'  I have tried uninstalling and re installing.  Can you help me to fix this please?

I'm noticing small occasional occurrences of buggy behavior.
For instance just now, the player was playing music just fine but the display (counter, progress bar and track description) were 'stuck', and didn't indicate the next track (the one it was playing, even after the usual 8-10 second delay before the counter, progress bar and track description, kick into 'realtime').

IOW the display was frozen.

After restart all was back to normal.

Hi again, are there updates on the crashing problem please?  I was recommended jriver by someone who has the android version and is very happy with it.  It looks great and perfect for what I want it, but I am due to DJ an event on Monday, and I can't use software that crashes! I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times, updated the OS, can't think of anything else to try. Any advice appreciated, thanks

More screen freezes and the 5 second endless repeat at the start of the track is back.

I'll do a complete system reset to see if it 'slows' down the buggy behavior.

Please use a new thread for this.  It's not clear where the problem is.

There is still a problem with replacing special characters in the "Rename, Move & Copy Files" dialog.

Yet more 'odd' behavior.

I was playing the usb player and then stopped it from playing.

A few minutes later I started it back up but the volume slider didn't re-appear.

I shut MC down and re-started and the slider is back.
