Changes in JRiver Media Center 25.0.114 (2019-10-25):
- NEW: Added channels to Radio Paradise in Theater View (both streaming and adding Radio Paradise individually).
- Fixed: Webservice calls to get a stack image could cause a crash if the folder was empty.
Changes in JRiver Media Center 25.0.113 (2019-10-04):
- Fixed: DVB TV channels did not play.
- Fixed: Revised the fix for thumbnail duplication in Theater View.
- Fixed: Thumbnails in Theater View could be duplicated.
- Changed: The disc count and HDCD tools are stopped at shutdown instead of blocking shutdown.
- Fixed: Dragging and dropping list items in the Tag window did not flag the data as dirty so the change would be discarded.
- Changed: If TreePath, Device, or Search is specified on the command line, the control and shift checks for filtering the media type will be disabled.
- Fixed: The maximum encode size wasn’t being passed as an int64 so it could overflow on big files and cause encoding to fail.
- Fixed: Doing “Paste All From Clipboard” on a list editor in the Tag window would not reliably save the data.
- Fixed: Editing tags in a popup would not mark them as dirty so they would not be saved.
- Fixed: The “Show Files In Subfolders” checkbox was not working.
Changes in JRiver Media Center 25.0.108 (2019-09-30):
- Fixed: Undid the “All channels” handling in the Parametric Equalizer volume and mute filters because it was causing all channels to be processed even if only selected ones were checked.
- Fixed: SRT subtitles could appear multiple times in the menu.
- Changed: Made the disc count algorithm count actual discs instead of take the max disc number.
- Changed: Made the maximum allowable size of a Podcast larger because we found real world Podcasts larger than our previous cap size.
Changes in JRiver Media Center 25.0.106 (2019-09-27):
- NEW: Added the ItemCount(…) expression to allow giving the count of all the files in the database with the same album, artist, album key, etc.
- Changed: Made the DLNA servers dialog larger and made it sizable.
- Changed: When playing to the WDM driver, Media Center will no longer jump to Playing Now (even if it’s set to).
- NEW: Made the program update the ‘Total Discs’ for all the files in the library at startup (files not marked dirty, so shouldn’t cause tagging).
- Fixed: We were not passing the array of files into the expression for thumbnails so things like GroupCount(…) were not working properly.
