JRiver Media Center 20.0.74 for Debian
« on: February 20, 2015, 05:09:45 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.74.deb

20.0.74 (2/20/2015)

1. Changed: A massive number of internal changes. If you want to help with debugging it'd be nice to try this (we are looking for regressions). Otherwise stick with build 70 for now.  This is also available in the "latest" apt repository.

20.0.70 (2/13/2015)

1. Fixed: Aspect Ratio was not correct when transcoding video.
2. Fixed: When syncing files to a mass storage based handheld device forward slashes within artist or album names would cause the destination path to be wrong.

20.0.66 (2/6/2015)

1. Fixed: Playing AC3/CUE files could cause the player to hang on track switch.
2. Fixed: Video files with a single-quote in their name could not be imported properly.
3. NEW: Video Transcoding in MC and through MCWS/DLNA.

20.0.64 (1/29/2015)

1. Fixed: Crashing on the second open of the audio device settings. The change to fix this is likely to eliminate other mysterious crashes and the intermittent segfault on exit.
2. Fixed: SACD iso playback broken in 20.0.57.
3. Fixed: Avoid importing images.

20.0.63 (1/27/2015)

1. Changed: When both a Linux and a Master license are installed, Media Center now shows the installed license type as Master.
2. Fixed: Point to Point network interfaces (i.e. vpn) caused a crash.
3. Changed: Main screen, more linux like mouse cursors.
4. Fixed: For opening hypertext menu links, require at least one of the desktop specific Open Desktop Standard utilities to be present in the package dependencies.

20.0.61 (1/22/2015)

1. Fixed: When spectrum analyzer stopped it was still redrawing on the screen causing unnecessary cpu usage.
2. Fixed: Master license details.

20.0.58 (1/20/2015)

1. NEW: Selecting audio streams in Video files.
2. NEW: Chapter selection in the OSD and context menus for videos.
3. Fixed: Freezing at the end of .ac3 audio tracks.
4. NEW: Accepts Master license.

20.0.57 (1/16/2015)

1. Fixed: DSP Studio presets could not be saved/loaded/deleted.
2. Changed: Internal coding changes to satisfy GCC. Ideally this will do away with some difficult to reproduce bugs.
3. Changed: Desktop file. On Unity systems this will make all of MC's windows to show up at the same Icon in the bar.

20.0.54 (1/8/2015)

1. Changed: Newly created windows should always be in the foreground now.
2. Changes from the mainstream. Note that if you are using client side volume leveling over DLNA and are using MC on multiple platforms, all builds need to be >=20.0.52 for this to continue to work.

20.0.50 (12/19/2014)

1. Fixed: Mouse pointer changes on hover over actions work now (like resize, change split, etc).

20.0.49 (12/16/2014)

1. Changed: Upgraded to cURL library 7.39
2. Fixed: Numeric keypad characters that were being ignored.
3. Fixed: GUI, disabling input in background windows.
4. Changed: GUI, greatly increased speed in operations inside of MC's windows. Fixes playlist lists, reduces CPU usage.
5. Fixed: Convert format when changing the destination path.

20.0.46 (12/05/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

20.0.43 (11/25/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

1. Fixed: Clearing "Now playing" from a remote will not pop up a confirmation box now.

20.0.42 (11/21/2014) (Changes from the main branch)

1. Fixed: DLNA: MC as renderer, when receiving a SetNextAVtransportURI, MC was allowing the playlist to grow beyond 2 items which is incorrect. This caused playlist sync issues.
2. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller, fix bug in event send when changing playlist position 1.
3. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller timing issue, make sure the first track is playing (for at least 5 seconds) before doing the SetNextAVTransportURI function.
4. Fixed: DLNA: MC as controller, when playlist position current +1 changes send a new SetNextAVTransportURI to devices that support it.
5. Fixed: The change from 20.0.31 (Back out library server hiding when the library is empty introduced in 19.0.71) missed the library server visibility (it was showing the DLNA servers).

20.0.33 (11/10/2014)

1. NEW: Support for thumbnail grabbing from video files.
2. Changed: Matrix height correction when using gnu unifont (it's got a bug in it's size specification).
3. Changed: For SSL network operations, use TLSv1 instead of SSLv3.
4. NEW: Support for Shorten and Opus audio playback using the new JR playback engine (using FFmpeg).

20.0.31-1 (11/1/2014)

1. There was something off about that last upload build (version number was wrong for one). Replaced with 20.0.31-1

20.0.31 (10/31/2014)

1. Happy Halloween  ;) Just changes from the main branch.

20.0.27 (10/24/2014)

1. Fixed: Filesystem character problems in Rename, Move and Copy files.
2. Changed: Added hinting to window creation to try to get the window manager to move and resize windows in larger increments.
3. Fixed: CPU usage, especially during the drawing of the Spectrum Analyzer during playback, bug introduced in 20.0.22

20.0.25 (10/16/2014)

1. Changed: More UI changes. Extra desktop hinting on window, title bar and icon creation. Suspend desktop hinting when moving or resizing the root window. Attempt to fix initial window placement issue. Needs testing.

20.0.23 (10/13/2014)

1. Changed: More UI changes. Needs testing.

20.0.22 (10/9/2014)

1. Fixed: Video Playback crashed on stop when playing from a library server.
2. NEW: If using the system volume control and there is no mixer for the PCM device, we'll fall back to using the Master mixer for the device.
3. Changed: UI fixes. Startup position and position of popup windows should be stable now. This includes the controls in fullscreen video mode.

20.0.20 (10/2/2014)

1. Fixed: https protocol broken in 20.0.18
2. Changed: Switched to gnutls from openssl for https support because of a bug in the openssl static libs that prevented some websites certificates from being verified (i.e. twitter)

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.

I just put it through the paces on Arch 64-bit with Gnome 3.14.  The only regressions I saw:

1) Scrolling appears less smooth, and there's occasionally a flicker when scrolling stops.  It's reproducible and wasn't there in .64

2) The Album Type derived field appears to be acting funny again.  It's the exact same as this issue I posted before: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=93006.msg642462#msg642462 .  Basically albums that appear as one (multiple artists) album on my windows server appear as ten different single artist albums on the linux client.  Same library, same tags, same view schemes, different results.  Steps to reproduce in linked thread.

Xubuntu 14.04 32 bit
I run a linux server (MC full GUI) -> Windows 7 client.
So I dont use it for playback, just for library management, autoimport etc etc.
I havent experienced any issues so far,
Scrolling appears to work correctly, there's no overhang.
I hadnt noticed the multi artist album issue, will have to check to see if any of my albums fit this category.
regards, Robert

I haven't tested it with a windows client/linux server; just with windows server / linux client, so you may not see it.

Scrolling seems to work correctly for me as well on this build - the UI doesn't halt when I scroll past the bottom of a list as it used to, but I do notice the "flicker" as well. Overall, a minor quibble!

- Resizing horizontally is not functional, though the cursor icon changes properly.  Tried top frame and bottom frame.
- Window moving is a bit chaotic with the top bar.  Alt-click-drag seems okay, however.
- Options dialog is not acting modal

That's it so far....found no issues with some limited MCWS testing or general playback.  Video even seems as good as before, but I'm getting bad tearing.

I know multi-mon isn't official, but fwiw, this build is now taking up both monitors as one big one and I can't get it sized down to just one monitor.

One issue I've seen repeatedly over the last few builds:

Starting from the Now playing view, choosing a playlist and then choosing a second playlist results in the total file count at the bottom not updating.

Are these all changes from build 70? I'm really just looking for regressions here.

Left side horizontal works for me, it's only the right side which is ineffective. Top and bottom are fine
Window moving via top bar, no issues works perfectly for me.

HI Mike,
I had the same behaviour, the only way to get it out there is 1. get it out of full screen using the window control and then use  the task line options and to maximize it again. This will resize it one monitor.

I couldn't find any new issues, not known before. Works perfect so far.

But I noticed quite a little difference in how the mouse responds in the main windows  title bar: a left click in there and the window expands across both  monitors. A double click in there reduces it back to one screen. To move the window from on to the other screen, you have to move a major part onto that screen (because it expands immediately) and double click it to reduce it again and to lock to this screen. Holding down the control key and left click behaves normal.

I'm running SUSE-64 13.2 and KDE

I just got MC 20.0.74 running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  I was having trouble with MC 19 and MC 20.0.70.  General unexpected results, MC 19 library backup would not work, couldn't find any icon after installing MC 20.0.70.  I then uninstalled both MC 19 & 20, then did a clean install of 20.0.74 that brought the icon right into my applications area.  When I first looked at 20.0.74, the library showed my 57xx tracks.  That was strange since the backup function from MC 19 totally failed and I didn't do any restore.  When I attempted to play anything, MC 20.0.74 immediately crashed. I then cleared the library and rebuilt it from my NAS drive, then it worked.  The problem is 20.0.74 frequently crashes.  In the course of a 40 minute album it crashed about 3 times.  At the end of any random track it stopped playing and disappeared from my computer screen leaving the Ubuntu desktop.  I didn't even get a message that Media Center unexpectedly stopped.  When I click on the icon after a crash, it opens back up and recognizes the devices on my network.  Then when you try to play, sometimes it plays, and sometimes it crashes again.

It does fine when it plays.
