mms 1.1.0 rc5 released

Postby arj » Sun Mar 30, 2008 3:49 pm

We have a new release candiate out for 1.1.0. Hopefully we should now be pretty close to 1.1.0 final. There's quite a large number of bugfixes in here but also some nice new features like the ffmpeg based thumbnailer and notification area.

Upgrading is as always high recommended.

Download:

http://mms.sunsite.dk/download-1.1.0-rc5.html

Changelog:

Features:
---------
- Added ffmpeg based thumbnailer
- Support finger scrolling when using touch input
- Add the ability to control playback using buttons in audio playlist
when using touch input
- Add notification area and clock plugin that will display the time in
notification area
- Don't just show mp3s on cd as one big list. Use folders as from hd.

Changes:
--------
- Lots of bugfixes and features to python plugin
- Make python plugin work on 64 bit
- Make mms's gstreamer plugin work in conjunction with jurassic
versions of gstreamer
- Fix DXR3 zoom
- mms doesn't check return code of inotifytools_watch_recursively()
- Fix two bugs in search
- Don't show current folder in playlist search as it's not right and
you can't choose anything anyway so it's just confusing
- Make up/down in search results work with keyboard enabled (mouse
movement would reset it)
- Fix mms crashes on exit
- Make go back to startmenu more consistent
- Weather: Make data-positioning (Low, High) translation dependend
- Fix wget wrapper for filenames with ' in them
- Don't cut of the last genre when sucking imdb information
- Make sure MMS doesn't choke when data is copied into a folder it is watching
- Fix crash entering a disc with not recognizable files
- Make movie playback (divx) from cd work again
- Better error checking in lyrics downloading
- Fix choosing cover with mouse
- Fix alsaplayer skipping tracks when starting playback
- Make back work with mouse as in all other modules
- Fix Search in Playlist - awfully slow
- Fix parsing/escaping strings used to create DB queries.
- Fix: Unrecognized long command line option crashes mms
- Fix: OFDB bug in downloading happy feet
- Another fix for unloading plugins

Other:
------
- Adds a new -d switch to library tools so that user can make them
scan only selected directories.
- Makes output related to inotify clearer
- tells user *why* it can't add an inotify watch
- prevent multiple instances of mms (or mms + mms-xxx-l ibrary) from
running at the same time.
- Provide more flexibility for Feature Plugins
- On action radio stations now starts playing but are not added to
playlist. They can still be added using secondary menu.
- Add a method that external plugins can use to play music
- Disable movie collection by default and improve the description of
it, so that people will read the description and understand what it
is before enabled it
- Update Danish, German and Polish translations

Yeah, I switched over my hp to wordpress a good time ago now .. but as you might see, content is missing ;)
There's not so big chance to aquire customers over inet, so it's very low on priority! Personal contact is what matters in my business ... so having a blog is one thing, getting me to know personally the other :twisted:

Any suggestions ?

Thanks

mms is "my media system". It's not related to mms videos. Does that answer your question? :)

Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia ... plications
Especially the part about video and mpeq4.

The crappy video my Nokia 3110 is able to record, can only be played back here w/o sound, the sound codec seems to be something proprietary. You can transcode it with e.g such tools here, but you never know what really is in this avi-container. It should be mpeg4 but you'll never know. First try to play back your MMS-Video with xine or mplayer. If it works, MMS can also play it back.
If I play back my MMS-Video, MyMediaSystem cores here. (didn't filed this bug yet)

Hope, you aren't confused too much now.

Regards,
Andreas

Thanks Andrea for your contribution. With my old MS XP and MPlayer 9 I was able to play the video on www.tg5.mediaset.it but now that I'm only on Ubuntu I can not see my favored programs anymore.
I tried many thinks, but with no success at the time.
I'm running 8.04 Hardy with NVIDIA FX card.

Thanks for your Help.

Mario
