JRiver Media Center 20.0.18 for Debian
« on: September 26, 2014, 04:34:37 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.18.deb

20.0.18 (9/26/2014)

1. Fixed: JRWorker segfaulting occasionally prevented some file types from being recognized.
2. Fixed: MediaCenter also occasionally segfaulted on exit.

20.0.17 (9/19/2014)

1. NEW: Implemented the file "locate" function.
2. Fixed: Menu items that open a URL in a browser.
3. Fixed: Disabled menu items unsupported on linux.
4. Fixed: Default for managing links changed to external browser.
5. Changed: possibly more ability to play Internet streams. Needs testing.

20.0.16 (9/16/2014)

1. Fixed: Series and Season cover art downloaded to the wrong folders.
2. NEW: Video playback supports playing from a library server.
3. Fixed: Last.fm scrobbling.

20.0.15 (9/12/2014)

1. Fixed: Fullscreen video playback is functional.
2. Changed: The video renderer uses VSYNC if available in the graphics driver.

20.0.13 (9/8/2014)

1. Fixed: Corrected the latency calculation for the ALSA output.
2. NEW: Video support.

20.0.7 (8/14/2014)

1. Changed: Reverted to previous device detection scheme. Because of a bug in ALSA this can occasionally crash when enumerating devices. It fixes detection on some platforms however.

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.

I'm still getting the segfault when stopping video playback on a library client described here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=91911.msg632660#msg632660
It's still 100% reproducible for me.

I also noticed a new media server quirk, not a serious issue, but definitely odd. When browsing files from a library server on an MC Linux instance, the MC linux instance doesn't seem to respect the servers views completely.  For example, I have a view sorted by album artist: a compilation album with a uniform album artist will show correctly as one album on the windows-based library server and on windows clients, but will show as 15 albums (one for each track) on linux clients using the same views.  If I copy the relevant view scheme and files over to a local library on the linux box, all looks as it should, so there's nothing wrong with the views or the tags; it seems like Linux clients are just misparsing windows library server views or tags or both.

Also, I recognize it's probably a low priority item, but there are still some Gnome UI issues that I mentioned previously here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=91075.msg627746#msg627746 .  Certainly not mission critical, but they make it harder to interact with the software in Gnome.

Problem with JRiver Media Center 20.0.18 for Debian
« Reply #2 on: September 29, 2014, 02:58:17 am »

I have both MC 19.0.160 and MC 20.0.160 on my computer. (HP Envy 700-216 with an AMD A10 Quad-Core Accelerated Processor, 12 Gigs of RAM, and a 2 TiB HDD and Linux Mint Debian Edition operating system.)

The MC 19 runs correctly, but after installing any version of MC 20, all my files are shown in quadruplicate and 3 of the 4 are marked with a red circle beside them and within that circle is a - mark.  This is not true of MC 19 running on the same OS and from the same music library.

My question: What's wrong and how can I fix it?

The "unmarked" files play fine, but the ones marked with the red circle cause a note in the left upper corner ("Playback Problem" The file could not be found. Assistance, please.

I posted this question on the previous MC20 Debian install. And I have uninstalled MC 20 and reinstalled it a couple of times. I also have MC19 installed on my WIndows 8.1 partition and it plays fine, but I'm trying to switch over completely to LMDE as my chief OS.

Thanks,
tlcmd

I think I notice the same as well here... I have loaded the video library from another DLNA server and the folder structure in not carried over or respected... everything shows up in one flat view only... mkv files and .jpg movie arts...
The Samsung TV DLNA client shows up correctly with the folder structure on the DLNA server...
Maybe some form of tagging still needs to be done, I don't know, but it will be really nice to know what to do...

First step might be just run MC19, do a library backup.  Then install 20, start a new library and then restore the prev backup from 19.  See what happens.

Beyond that, you'll probably need to supply a little more info about your library.

FIXED IT!!! JRiver Media Center 20.0.18 for Debian
« Reply #5 on: September 29, 2014, 06:45:55 pm »

Thanks to all who read my post re: problems with MC20.
When MC 20 was installed, it searched my whole HDD for music files. Since my 2 TiB HDD is partitioned into two partitions (500 Gigs for Windows and the rest for LMDE, MC 20 apparently "automatically" searched both partitions and thus all the files from the Linux Music folder and those from the Windows Music folder were imported.
My solution was to select all from MC20 and delete them from the program and the search and import only from the Linux Partition's music folder. Now it works correctly!!
Learning Linux "on the job" can really be complex and confusing.
Thanks for all who read and thought about my problem.

Last.fm scrobbling works, but it scrobbles twice or three times for some reason.

I don't know, if anyone else has this problem: if I open a sub window from main menu, it opens behind the main window, so I have to click it via task bar to show up on top.
