    "AirPlay" type implementation

    First off, I'd just like to say thank you for all of the incredible work you guys have done. I have been using media browser since version 2.0, and MB3 is just fantastic. I will be contributing shortly. The iOS app is great, and I've thoroughly enjoyed using it on my iPhone 4s. The remote control functionality is useful for scrubbing through movies and TV shows quickly. I have noticed that browsing a large media library on my phone is much faster than using a remote and MBC/MBT. I think it would be great if I could browse to a video on my phone and then tell it to play in MBC instead of my phone, much like the way airplay works. I would assume both devices would need to have the same user logged in. So the "workflow" would be like this: Start MBC/MBT Open app on my phone Browse to a movie Hit "Play on device" and select my MBC/MBT session The video would automatically start playing in MBC/MBT Thanks again for all your hard work, Charlie

    Server cannot find path

    Hello, I have a problem that seems similar to: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/2810-scan-media-library-hangsnever-completes/ I had the library hang on me, and stopping the server had no effect (it would say "stopping" but just hang there). Manually stopping the server service on the actual server seemed to work except that when the Media Server started up again, it could not find the path, or said access was denied. Removing and adding the path manually or by browsing to the UNC path did not work. Rebooting did not help the first couple of times, until I rebooted both the server and all client machines. At all times I was able to see the remote paths as shares and access the file, even creating and deleting dummy files within. The dashboard then allowed for browsing to the UNC path and I was able to re-add the library. Now, the scan is stuck at 93.9% and pressing “stop” is the same as above, but at least there are no other error messages. Restarting the server did not help, and the log file shows that some items are not found (see below for example). Any assistance would be appreciated. I'd reboot all machines again, but my son is watching something downstairs.
  3. With the default settings in MB Classic/MB Server I'm often interrupted to update either the server or the client and/or to perform restarts. I have MB Server running as a service. I would like to know: is it possible to fully automate all updates to occur at a scheduled time (like 3AM), that requires no day to day intervention? If not, how do I disable the existing semi-automatic updating and then manually update?
  4. I ran into a situation where I couldn't log into the server with my account with administration privileges the other day. Fortunately this was on a remote device and not the PC where the MB3 server is. I was still logged in there and I created another account with admin rights and wrote down the password. This brings up my request.. How about a way to reset or recover a password so that people don't inadvertently get locked out?
  5. Hi Luke, I have a question about how the server collects all the images. I have been using meta browser to collect all the images and movie/show info for my collection. Recently I reinstalled the server to create the new IBN folder. I noticed in my media collection that I have more images downloaded, but the images I have are folders with extra fanart & thumbs,season folders in landscape mode, more then one clearart art logo and season banners. I am thinking of having MB server do all my metadata collections because it does make some things easier, but what can I do for the media that I setup already. I am going to delete everything now, but I don't want it to recollect everything again. PS....I did notice with one new series that I added to my collection, it added just the right amount of images, which leaves me to wonder should I start deleting most of the images in my other folders and let MB Server collect them. I know going back that you recommended people do that. Thanks Dominick
  6. Hi, after the last server update I can not see my metadata anymore, only "chapters" to each movie. The movie counter showed around 370 now it showing 766 :S I've added a picture to describe my problem better. (attached file) *** This happens in MBT and Web ***** Also, if I go to "collection" and choose ex "blu-ray" then all the movies are shown properly. What is wrong? **EDIT** Okey, it's looks like it something to do with the way the server handles naming. MBT should ignore the "#". MBC is working fine, and so is the WEB-version if I choose a letter from A-Z and not the first "#". (as shown in the picture) MBT is showing all the movies correctly, but i need to scroll trough all the "chapters first" before it finds the movies from A-Z. I think this is the problem, and it is now more related to MBT.

    Playstate Backup

    I re-built my server on a VM just to see if it would work ok and it works great. One question: is there a way to copy the play-state information from my old server to my new server? Thank you for great software again. Cheers,
  8. I've installed Server and am going through the initial installation. All my Media is on a GoFlex Home network Shared drive. The login for the drive is the same I used for my profile. When I try to put my media path of \\GOFLEX_HOME\GoFlex Home Public\Movies I get an incorrect login/password message. When I use the mapped drive Seagate Dashboard creates I get missing part of path error. This Seagate drive won't allow me to modify the permissions in Windows, but all I can do through the drive configuration tool/dashboard is create an account.
  9. newly added movies are no longer pulling the folder cover or inserting a movie.xml file? everything else seems to be pulling, ie: disk ,backdrops, banners, etc.

    Image cache cleanup

    I am running out of space due to metadata and i think i figured out why. Both metabrowser and media browser are downloading meta data for some titles. That means I have a few too many image files and they are clogging up my HTPC client SSDs. I would like to delete all of the jpg files from my NAS share, reprocess the images and then repopulate the media browser caches. Will that plan work to rebuild the image caches in both the classic and server directories? Cheers,
  11. I started using the service feature and now notice that each server update requires me to download the update manually and install them after shutting the service down. Is this because I'm using the service or is it a feature of the new server? The server always used to just prompt me to update and I could just click to restart MBServer. My server is logged in with a user permenantly anyway (for MediaCentreMaster) so I don't really need to use a service but I thought it would be neater. Also, I know the Dashboard cannot restart the service yet but does the Shutdown Server button stop the service?
  12. Hi, I've fairly recently stopped using meta</browser> for my metadata fetching purposes, and started using MBServer for everything. One feature, however, that I do miss from metabrowser is the auto-renaming feature. I suppose I'm a little OCD when it comes to how tidy my collection is, so I liked the fact that I could just add something to my collection, (i.e. a television episode) and it would automatically be given a nice, tidy file name. Example: "Breaking Bad S03E02 - Caballo Sin Nombre (2010).mkv" looks much nicer than: "Breaking.Bad.S05E15.720p.HDTV.x264.mkv". Same goes for movies, where something like: "man.of.steel.2013.1080p.bluray.x264.mkv" really sticks out to me, and if it could look more like: "Dracula (1992) - [MKV].mkv" my OCD would feel better haha. Real-time folder monitoring was a nice touch as well... Just putting it out there! Thanks for the great service, Patrick PS. I just made up these file names for example purposes...
  13. For some reason, new content that is being added to MediaBrowser by MetaBrowser is being marked as watched by MB Server. I have no idea why this is suddenly happening and any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers,
  14. I cannot start mediabrowser server on my machine following updates to some of the plugins. I get the error message "There was a problem starting Media Browser: Index was outside the bounds of the array" This is Server version 3.0.5061.25570 Log file is as attached Any help gratefully received server-63519834548.log

    Invalid Source

    When trying to play a movie in MBServer the "Invalid Source" error is received. 3.0.5061.28570. log1.txt
  16. Hi all, Looking for outside wisdom on this one - Have the latest and greatest MB3 server installed (3.0.5050.37565) on a clean install and small amount of h264 WTV files (8 total). However, I've noticed that the metadata is not being saved by MB Server for the movies to the folders at all (for any of them) - upon inspection I'm suspecting it has something to do with trying to get the run time of the movie itself, which seems to return as a massively huge number. Case example is the movie Angels & Demons - I've used VideoRedo to create the .wtv file from a re-encode I made from the original. Link to the metadata from the library explorer is here http://paste2.org/UKGVK1Lc , and the relevant part of the logfile is here which is detailing the error http://paste2.org/U4YsYvUF - to me, it appears the move length value is aborting the saving of the metadata file, would that be correct? I should point out there's absolutely NO problems with playback, the file itself plays back perfectly, runtime length is correct, however it's a wee wrinkle that has me puzzled (and the lack of the metadata obviously stops the values pulling through to MBC displays). Anyone have any ideas?

    Scan Freezing

    Lately when it scans my library it is freezing at 47.6% Stays there for ages Edit link to paste2.org log http://paste2.org/fAbL0aws
  18. I have some series with lots of episodes but MediaPortal and MB Classic is only showing the thumbs without filenames which make it hard to find an episode. After some experimenting by renaming a couple of files, I determine it was caused by the square brackets in the filename. These files had no problem in MB2. Say I have media files with tags stored as: \\fs\TV\Show 1 (2013)\ [tag1] file 01 [tag2].avi [tag1] file [tag2] 02.avi In both MB Web MediaPortal and MB Classic, file 01 would not show filename while file 02 would just show 02. MB seems to be ignoring any characters in between the 1st open and last close square brackets: [tag1] filename 01 [tag2].avi --> [tag1] filename [tag2] 02.avi --> 02 MB Server version: 3.0.5031.21343 MB Classic version: B10-3.1
  19. Would it be possible to have some sort of advanced option where one could specify their own musicbrainz mirror & apikey?
  20. Since I have migrated over to MB3 server / classic, when I add external players the drop down list still shows my older players from MB2 which was TMT5. I have since installed TMT6 but it does not show as an external player option (still shows TMT5). I'm thinking I need to clear out /reset something in the config setup. Anyone please. thx Bw
  21. Server Version 3.0.5031.21343 I have a user account set up for me (the main/admin account), and one for my son. My son's account is limited to PG and under and to two specific collections (Kids Movies and Kids TV). When I add movies to Kids Movies, they show up just fine for me (master account/default library), but they don't appear for him. This past week I've added 4 rated G movies, and none have appeared for him, but all show fine for me. I've done numerous manual scans but nothing helps. Could it be that the collection names in my son's custom library are the same names as in the default library? Could there be a conflict there? It does appear to be a recent issue, though I've experienced similar issues in the past (which had been resolved).
  22. Hi All, I am running MB3 on a dedicated machine that runs Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 which is fully patched. Only applications installed on the machine are MB3 and Google Chrome. This morning my MB3 updated to 3.0.5031.21343 and asked to restart the services. The splash screen loads saying: Loading Media Browser Server Version 3.0.5031.21343 After about 2 - 3 minutes I get an error saying: There was an error launching Media Browser: The read operation failed, see inner exception Is anybody else experiencing this issue? Is it possible to roll back to an earlier version? Edit: Nevermind, I found doing what was suggested here: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/930-server-error-version-30503121343/ fixed my problem.

    Views Missing

    Hi, I've been through the excellent set up guides and I'm not sure if I'm missing something here. As I understand it, MB3 Server produces Views based on the collection type selected when adding a media collection under the Default Media Library menu. Hence Views for general or mixed content, adult videos, books, box sets, games, home videos, movies, music, music videos, photos, trailers and TV shows should become available as long as one or more media collection has been tagged as such. I have Views for 'Movies', 'TV' and 'Music' (even though none of my collections are tagged as Music) but am missing Views for 'General or Mixed Content' and 'Adult Videos' even though some of my media collections are tagged as such. Any idea how I get them to show up? Also the Roku client appears to list Views and not Collections. Is it possible to have it do both or just Collections? I'll post this question in the Roku section as well. Thanks for a great product and any help you can give with the above questions. NobodyAtAll
  24. When you run the MB Server as a service, it must have a user account associated with it that can access your media folders. The default Windows Service account does not have access to network resources. So, using the "Services" control panel, find the Media Browser service, right click and select "Properties" (or double click the entry). Then, on the Log In tab of that dialog, enter credentials that have access to your media folders:
  25. Media Browser Universe With version 3, Media Browser is no longer a single program that runs under Windows Media Center. It is now a complete suite of products anchored by a server engine that can centrally manage your library and feed multiple clients on multiple platforms. Therefore, it is a bit more complicated than previous versions but we're doing everything we can to keep it simple and easy to install and setup. There are some good tutorials being created to help you with step by step instructions on installation and configuration. Look for those in the Tutorials and Guides section of the Knowledge Base. This document will help you understand the big picture of the system, some of its key components as well as which of those components should be installed for your particular situation. Media Browser 3 components Media Browser 3 is made up of a server program that manages your whole library and any of a number of client applications with which to view and play content. Media Browser Server This is a windows-based application that should be installed on one machine on your network to manage your entire library and feed all of your clients. You only need this on one machine on your network, and that machine needs to be available with the server running for any of the clients to be able to access your media. Media Browser Theater This will be the new premier HTPC client for Media Browser. It is a stand-alone program that does not require WMC or specialized codecs in order to view and play your media. It is currently in development and not available for testing yet. Media Browser Classic This is the new Media Center client for MB3. It looks and behaves much like the old MB 2.x and still relies on WMC for its presentation and playback. If you are coming from MB 2 and like or need WMC for its other features, this client will allow you to stay in that environment. MBC also has many of the themes you have come to love under MB 2 available for it. The Dashboard The Dashboard is the new web-based configuration interface for Media Browser Server. It is a centralized hub for configuring your library, user profiles, metadata options, plug-ins, etc. Being web-based, it is accessible from many different platforms including mobile phones and tablets. Web Client Within the Dashboard interface there is also a fully-featured web client for MB 3. This client gives you a very rich interface into your media library including advanced views and searching capability. It is also web-based so it is fully mobile-compatible and can be used to browse and play your collection, and can even communicate with and control clients connected to the server. Remote features vary by client. Other MB3 Clients In addition, there are several other MB clients currently in development. There are specific clients for the following platforms: - Android - Windows/RT - Roku Streaming Media Player - iOS Example Installations The following are a few example installation scenarios and what you need in each one. These are just a few examples - there are many possible configurations but the one thing each one has in common is that you will need one, and just one, installation of MB Server for any Media Browser 3 installation. Single HTPC If you only need to access your media on one computer, you can do that! You can have the MB Server, and MB Classic or MB Theater (coming soon) installed on the same computer, along with all of your media files. Local Network with basic HTPC(s) If you have more than one computer on your network, you can install the MB Server on your primary HTPC only, and install MB Classic or MB Theater (coming soon) on the others. In addition, the computers on your network can also access the Media Browser Web Client. With User Profiles, you can control what media collections each user has access to. Advanced Local Network with multiple types of clients and NAS Maybe your network is a little more complicated. If your media is stored on an NAS, and you've got tablets, smartphones and a Roku you want to view your media on, MB3 can handle that with ease. Simply install MB Server on a PC and direct it your network storage shares. Then, install your choice of MB clients on your other computers and devices. Local and WAN access In addition to being able to access the MB Server from any computer or client on your network, you can expand your reach to anywhere you are connected to the internet by configuring your router to forward the ports used by the Server.
