JRiver Media Center 20.0.84 for Debian
« on: March 17, 2015, 05:43:12 pm »

http://files.jriver.com/mediacenter/channels/v20/latest/MediaCenter-20.0.84.deb

20.0.84 (3/17/2015)

1. Fixed: Multi-threaded video encoding is properly supported.
2. Fixed: When receiving a HUP signal MC was waiting on a event to process resulting in an unnecessary delay in shutdown.
3. Fixed: Multichannel DSD wrapped by DoPE was overflowing the buffer resulting in noise or crashes.
4. Fixed: If an event is received for a window which has been destroyed, don't act on the event.

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. 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.

OS: Debian Jessie x64

The 30 day trial expired and I am getting a message box stating as such.  I hit the 'restore license' button to enter my license.  I enter my MC20 license and click OK.  That window and message box unceremoniously disappears.  If I start MC again, the process starts over.

If I run 'mediacenter20' from the command line, I see:
p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/p11-kit-trust.so: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pkcs11/p11-kit-trust.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Doing Maximize

Found 0 devices (devices will be listed below)

I discovered that although I had the 64bit p11-kit package installed, I did not have the i386 version.  So, after installing p11-kit:i386, those errors are no longer displayed in the console.  Possible dependency issue here?

Unfortunately, my license key is still not accepted.  Please advise.

EDIT:  I just discovered that I was being sent emails each time I was entering my license key.  After figuring out what the command line arguments were for using the license file, I'm back in business.  How about a file requester to select the license file?

Also, I believe that even with the expired trial, when I ran 'mediacenter20' from the command line, I could simply close the expired trial message box and mediacenter would operate normally.

Probably a certificate issue, perhaps they moved the data at the locations that libgnutls26 relies upon.

I can't reproduce your method of getting past the expire box. Are you sure you were able to do that? I tried both hitting cancel and closing the box and MC just exits to the command line.

Also, I just tested the license in the current build on the supported distro and it worked fine from the registration box.
If one uses the registration box you MUST have an internet connection for it to be validated.

That bug where UI events stop getting processed while scrolling is being processed has crept up again. The UI will draw, but it won't process any other actions while it's still processing extra/unnecessary scroll events. So for example, you scroll to the bottom of a list and keep on scrolling and it won't do anything else until it seemingly finishes processing the "scroll downs".

Can't reproduce this.
If I play a track, scroll to the bottom of the list of files and hold down the left mouse button or keep using the scroll wheel, the spectrum analyzer and track time continue to update.

Yeah, as I said, the UI still draws:

I am not sure if it's specific to mouse events, or occurs with keyboard events as well.

Bob, just realized I made a mistake and posted it in the wrong thread. I am on the 64-bit build. Not sure if that means you can disregard this bug for 32-bit builds. Thanks!

I'd suspect this is generic. The only thing that might make a difference is the desktop in use.

The event driven loop did change quite a bit in build 84. Could you please verify that the issue doesn't exist in build 80?

Thanks for checking.
I still can't make this happen, perhaps I'm still not understanding it properly.

If I start playing a song in the list view of all of the files in my library, I go to the right scroll bar and either hold it down at the bottom or hit the scroll down triangle at the bottom of the vertical slider for several seconds then immediately go to do like change a horizontal divider, it reacts instantly. Am I still not looking for the right thing?
