Hi 7,

 

Two small things with Theme songs.

1) If you are listening to music and browse to a movie with a theme song... the song plays and the theme plays as well? I would think the theme shouldn't play if you are listening to a music track, 

2) I think theme songs are a client setting now, not sure, the isn't an option to turn them off 

 

 

Maybe one thing to help mitigate the server/ffmpeg issue with remuxing dts to ac3 that scott310 reported in the forum. The app will transcode dts to ac3 even if there is an ac3 track in the container. I rip my movies with the native format dts,dts-hd,ac3 what ever as the default track and if it is dts/dts-hd and ac3 track. On my devices that can't play dts I still check dts passthrough and just change the audio track in the UI. For the casual user ( and lazy users like me) and option to play the ac3 track if available would be great. 

 

With the various capabilities of clients I think a lot users rip movies similarly.

 

Thanks!! Hope you had a good time in Spain!,

Thanks!

Yup, had a blast. Now I'm in Mountain View this week, will head back to Sweden on Thursday. Plan on being jetlaged on Friday and Saturday, but after that I hope to be able to code some on Ember again. :)

@Vicpa If you dare, I've just uploaded a build, fully untested, that might fix both themesong playback when audio is playing and the multiple audiostream issues.

It's e Debug build, so it will be a Little less responsive than normal builds, but if the audiostream issue is resolved I can make a new build for you in release mode. :)

Hi 7,

 

Always up for a dare :P Besides what the worst can happen, I just roll it back. Neither issue is a showstopper so no worries.

 

 

Will let you know in a little while.

Hi,

 

Pretty darn close for an untested change.  :) . The theme didn't play when music was playing, however it would not play at all after that, kind of like the switch wasn't turned back on. Video's direct played if the was an AC3 track, yeah!!, Still had to manually change to the AC3 track though.

 

7 These are just nice to have things,  Enjoy the rest of your trip... They can definitely wait until after that.

It's not holiday anymore, Mountain View is just business. So family is at home and I have time to kill. :)

Well then...

 

The AC3 track in the container is probably the bigger issue. Like I said the change you made allowed the file to direct play, (would need to find a movie with only DTS, to verify that it would still transcode. 

 

A switch (use AC3) track and then make that the selected track would provide the needed functionality. Or better still use the DTS pass through switch as the determiner. If that is not selected play the AC3 track by default. 

 

The theme song thing somewhere just needs to be re-enabled .

Hi 7,

 

I have noticed one small regression with 280 and 16299.15. The full screen "setting" seems to be erratic. Sometimes it is remembered and sometimes it opens in the default window. It isn't consistent (I know how you like those things :) ) but it seems the longer the app has been closed the more likely it is to open again in a window vs full screen. I hope that makes some sense.

Hi @Luke,@7illusions

 

With sever version .36, the album view causes a server crash. :( (I don't use the straight album view often so this could have been introduced earlier.) 

-The page loads but only #,A. 

To reproduce.

-load album view. click on # to collapse the list. See only #,A. expand back to full view.

-The app doesn't crash right away, still uses cached data(?). but I can go to the server and it is no longer running. 

??

 

I have PM'd the server log to you both. 

 

Help!! Thanks

-vicpa

 

@FrostByte are you seeing the same?

Nope, tried PC and XB1 and neither is crashing the server using those procedures.  I'm running server 3.2.36.7 beta

Try installing from the website on top of your existing version.

Hi @Luke that seems to work. albeit much slower than before.  It appears installing from the website gives you the net core version. Is that now the official release? I got .36 via an automatic update 

 

ffmpeg and ffprobe are now in the system folder  are they still the 3/2016 release?

Hi 7,

 

The new screens are nice! I use the scroll wheel or touch on the Surface. On my screens not all the choices are visible like users or all the settings..

For example this screen needs to be able to scroll down :)

The settings screen is similar.

 

thanks

Hi 7

 

I have tracked down my issue with collections. It appears to be a regression introduced by one of the latest server builds. Don't know if it is a server or app thing or when it exactly started. I tested with 280 and it is present there so not related to recent changes.  :( 

 

Weird so I will try my best to explain the use case. I have 3 separate movie libraries. None are grouped together. Each has some collections all built with the web UI or Auto box sets. There are about 100 total with the vast majority in one library. I am the only user with access to all three, my other users have only one or two of various combinations.

 

The app works as expected, the collection view from the hamburger opens just fine and is speedy. If you have only access to  no more than TWO of the three libraries. It doesn't matter which two or just one obviously. If you add access to the third library it doesn't work. bummer.

 

It is consistently reproducible with my library anyway. You still have access to my stuff if you want/need to see the specific case.

 

 

Thanks !!!

Hi 7

 

Sometimes it seems I am the only one testing,  :mellow: 

 

The change that lets additional media types direct stream seems to be working well. :) Maybe with the exception of TV but I am still checking that.

 

Of course I have a request, can you add the codec to the audio choice display? Currently it just shows "Surround" The icon you click on at the lower left of the playback screen. 

In a perfect world it would be Codec, layout, language. ie "AC3 5.1 eng" etc. Picky Picky Picky LOL ;) 

 

"Court the Guide" (great one 7,  :P ) The server doesn't let you modify the channel details,(thanks BTW for looking at the logo size), for me as a work around......

I would just truncate the call sign at the first underscore. ie ABC-D__WPVI_ABC to ABC-D

 

Thanks !!!!

Hi 7

 

The guide changes are really nice  :) I am fine with just removing the call signs until the server is fixed. Not sure what others will think.

 

Did you get a chance to look at the collection thing? Is it just timing out in that view?.

 

-One thing with the MCE remote, hopes this makes sense. When you use the remote to play video, Movies or TV. The focus goes to the play button and the on screen controls are visible, (Chapters as well when in movies) They don't seem to hide as long as the focus is some where in the controls. Can you make them hide after a few secs regardless?

 

Thanks 7, there are lots of nice improvements in 291
