JRiver Media Center 20.0.80 for Debian
« on: March 02, 2015, 07:09:56 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.80.deb

20.0.80 (3/2/2015)

1. Changed: Updated the FFmpeg version used for file analysis, transcoding and video playback.
2. Changed: Many internal changes. Look for regressions. This will also be available in the "latest" apt repository.

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.

Bob,

Sorry to have to ask you this.  But since I'm not a programmer, though I've been working on computers and networks for a long time, so maybe I should know it LOL.  What is a regression as it relates here and what are you looking for?  It would allow me to help provide the information you are looking for.

Thanks!

It means that testing is needed for things that formerly worked but are now broken.

MC Window turns completely white when I resize.

Clicking in the top "title bar" region intermittently works for doing a maximize.

When I started it up, it was maximized as I had left it when I shut it down, and I couldn't "restore" it to a smaller window. The "Maximize/Restore" icon was stuck in the "Maximize" position. Once I resized using a corner drag, maximize/restore worked as expected using the button.

Some minor ones, but I'm sure they'll be fun to fix! Have fun!

Turning white while you resize is good, it's supposed to suppress redraws during resize. When you release the click it should redraw and does on every machine I've used it on.

There is an issue with maximize with some desktop managers. Haven't figured that one out yet.

Thanks for the report!

Well, it was a local playlist, I played before when I terminated MC. After starting the server (via command line "mediacenter20 /mediaserver"), it starts playback again (right there, where it was when i quit. Next thing I did was to stop playback using a remote device. Now, every time, I start the server, it repeats this behaviour (like pressing PAUSE before). To answer the question, it was used a
DLNA renderer, but starts local playback.

I checked the previous  version xx.70, but it does the same.
Also, I didn't notice it before, because the switch "Start playing current playlist" was set to off, now ON.

We Linux users all appreciate your continued development on the Linux Debian version of Media Center. I suppose none of use could ever say "Thank You" enough, but y'all need to know we really appreciate the effort and time you have spent and are spending developing MC for Linux. Thank you and please keep up the good work!!

This version is crashing on my system every day with the following error in syslog:

mediacenter20[27966]: segfault at 0 ip 0000000008b10e1c sp 00000000ffbe5b20 error 4 in mediacenter20[8048000+1278000]

i was using stable apt (running 20.0.70) and that was running without problems.

The segfault message is pretty useless. What were you doing at the time? What does the tail of the log look like? (turn logging on if it's not).
