Internet no longer required to run

Most of the changes in this version are "under the hood" but the most significant thing you will notice is that a constant internet connection is no longer required for this app to function.  Emby Premiere will still need periodic internet to validate but this app used to require a constant connection to function and no longer does.

Other changes and improvements:

  • New Features / Improvements:
    • App no longer requires the Internet to function
    • "mov_text" subtitles are now embedded on the Native Player.
    • Added play button support on Siri Remote to libraries
    • Fixed jerky scrolling behavior that was prevalent in most of the app but especially in grid-based views
    • Improved handling of missing episodes by adding a "MISSING" tag to episodes in a season and on specific episode detail view
    • App now respects Live TV access settings
    • App now respects Live TV Recording Management access settings
    • Folder items no longer display the tabs across the top
    • New Playback settings view that aligns with the web app
    • New Subtitles settings view that aligns with the web app (no subtitle appearance settings yet)
    • tvOS 13 Launch Screen updates:
      • The Launch Screen now respect the device Appearance (Dark / Light)
      • The "Starting Up..." screen has been replaced with a screen that looks identical to the Launch Screen creating a smoother experience
      • Instead of showing a white screen on startup (say when Internet is unavailable to validate a device) the Emby loading screen is persistent until those requests finish. Additionally, an activity indicator is present so the user knows something is happening.
    • Loaders are now present when selecting a server and a user so the user knows activity is taking place.
    • Select Version / Audio / Subtitles view has been re-written. With this update we've added a Resume button in addition to the play button
    • Now when you play an item in the middle of a playlist or music album it will continue playing the next item. In a previous version it would only play that one item
    • There is now a played indicator for items in a video playlist so you can tell if it's been watched or not
    • The Now Playing menu item is back. This was removed in previous releases due to a tvOS bug that would cause duplicate "Now Playing" and app crashes. Apple fixed this in tvOS 13.4.
