@@arztonyou The newest build, version 1.0.6, has additional logging to determine if a socket timeout is actually happening. Can you please re-test entering your movie collection and provide me the client log.

 

I finally got a chance to do some testing last night.  For the moment, I decided to connect the external hard drive directly to the PC where the server is installed instead of connecting it to my router, and the performance is much better now.  I haven't had any problems with my collections in the Android app since I made the change.  If I do have any problems, I'll provide a log for you.  Sorry about bugging you only to find out it was an internal network issue.

 

Now I love the Android app more than ever!!!

Unfortunately the logs didn't provide any insight. Just for kicks, can you go into the devices settings->apps->MediaBrowser and clear the cache. Then launch the app and see if the series posters show.

 

Just to be sure. You do have "prefer posters" set to on in the apps configuration?

 

Red, clearing the cache and data on both my devices had no affect on the series posters.

And yes, I do have 'Prefer Posters' enabled in the apps settings. When I disable it, it displays the series backdrops no problem.

 

However, I like to see my Movies view by posters instead of backdrops.

 

Any luck with the weird sorting issue?

Edit:  I guess nevermind this.  They WERE playign fine in the web client but it seems that it stopped working there too.  Something with the server perhaps?

 

Seems like the client takes forever to start playing a video.  When it comes to DVR-MS type videos they do not play at all.  Is this an incompatibility with the android client?  They play fine on my computer via the web client.  Here's a snip from my log:

Savage13. Are you using the internal player on the Android Client?  That is the only way to play DVR-MS or WTV recorded files through Android client. Server has to do the transcoding. There is a considerable start up time after selecting play, but I have played both DVR-MS and WTV files through the Android client.  Granted, a few selections have not started and I had to close out and restart Android client, but then they were able to spin up and play.

Hi Red,

I also have a feature request that I hope will eventually be implemented.

I would like to be able to change the subtitle and bitrate while watching a video directly in the player.

 

Thanks!

Hi Redshirt

im using media browser on S4 over an 3 unlimited plan for music on move  (upload bandwidth no good for tv/movies in real time at reasonable quality), and from tab 2.0 with external mx player and hw codec and its working very well.

i recall you mention your happy to receive requests/ideas.

 

Feature Request: Cache Content Locally either whilst on lan or accross cellular for playback at fuller/full resolution.

A simple interface to cache content locally  would be great, ie tag a few tv shows for download onto device (fifo with maximum cache size setting, option for native or transcoded) might be popular. ie expanding the support for viewing content away from home in low bandwidth environments.

 

Feature Request: Queue Music and play music whilst browsing the music collection.

 

Feature Request: Remote Play Music albums to eg. xbox/mbc (for people who also use the android client as a remote)

 

thank you for considering.

Good point. I don't use dvr-ms/wtv files so had never thought about it. I'll add that point to the pop-up tjat now shows when you toggle the external player

Yes I'm using the mb client on default settings no external player. Dvr-ms files sit there for minutes and never play.

Looking back at your original post I saw clearly that you were using the poster view. I need to do better tracking issues... I'm still investigating this one, the answer is far from forthcoming. 

 

Testing the sorting options, my results were consistent, never random, when switching between ascending and descending. However after checking the same on the web dashboard I realized that my results didn't match up. I tweaked my sorting criteria and the results now match the web client, so hopefully that issue is resolved. Public release will be next week after my beta team has a go at it.

Hi Red, Is it possible that MB Android could Open & Close MBC?

I don't have a dedicated HTPC so when I want to watch something, I plug my laptop directly into the TV and use MB Android as my remote. It would be nice if I could plug in the laptop, sit down and then start MBC, watch whatever and then close MBC all with my phone. I'm sure others would like this also, what say you?

It's not possible. For something like that to work a small service or app would have to be running on the machine that listens for such a request and then launches MBC. ebr might do that, but I don't think it's high up on his priority list.

@@Redshirt dunno what that beh was doing at the end of that post...

 

anyway yeah she's quite forward with the technology lol, just the tv view you have to swipe the episodes into view and she gets to there and gets lost... I'm sure after a few more goes she'll get the hang of it!!

 

cheers
