    5. NEW: Added a toolbar button to add selected files to Playing Now.
    6. Fixed: Radio Paradise could play duplicates in some cases.
    7. Changed: Made the Playing Now Overview lists no longer ignore the selection. Instead the selection will be used to populate the Tag Action Window and the like.

    2. Fixed: DVB Subtitle switch was not working with OSD menu.
    3. Fixed: DVB TV in time-shifting mode did not get DVB Subtitle metadata as soon as they became available, causing the subtitle menu not to be populated for upto a minute.

    5. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 4.39.
    6. Changed: The memory playback model "Load decoded file into memory" no longer engages when playing a URL.

    10. Fixed: Open Weather Map configuration for Theater View was not working.
    11. NEW: Added an option to allow Live IPC playback (WDM/ASIO driver) to fully engage ZoneSwitch and switch the current active zone, so that remote control/volume media keys work with it, among other things.
    12. NEW: Pressing Ctrl+Q+Enter in a search box adds the files to Playing Now (Ctrl+Enter plays).

    24.0.61 (11/2/2018)

    14. Changed: DLNA: Don't post a WM_UPDATE_DLNA_PLAYBACK_STATE when receiving a transport event unless the state is actually changing. This can fix an issue where renderers that are very slow to respond to play state changes (>5 seconds) confuse logic to determine if we are the DLNA controller in charge (BubbleUPnP wrapping chromecast).
    15. Fixed: ATSC Closed Captioning could not be activated using OSD command for playback of recorded ATSC shows.

    8. Changed: German translation updated (thanks ByteStar).

    24.0.59 (10/24/2018)

    1. Changed: When viewing a playlist group, the files will be ordered according to the child playlists (instead of all lumped together). Just set the view to have no sorting and it will show the playlist order.
    2. Changed: Made the default sorting for a playlist group no sorting so it just shows the child playlists in order.
    3. Changed: Theater View uses ANGLE for rendering, with the Direct3D 11 or Direct3D 9 backends as available, to resolve various issues with OpenGL rendering.
    4. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukac).
    5. Fixed: Curly braces were being removed from HTML code inside style tags.
    6. Changed: Panel - Clicking on the current rating level will reset the rating to zero.

    4. Fixed: Saving a DSP preset after picking an equalizer preset would not save the preset.
    5. Fixed: Importing MKVs with ordered chapters will use the default title's duration for the Media Center database.
    6. Fixed: Bookmarks are cleared on playback stop if the position is close to the end, when the precise duration is known, in addition to checking on playback startup against the database duration.
    7. Fixed: Pressing DELETE in Parametric Equalizer would delete the Playing Now behind the equalizer instead of effects from the list.
    8. Changed: German translation updated (thanks ByteStar).
    9. Fixed: WMA files could not be played on Library Server clients without direct file access.
    10. Fixed: MC could deadlock when loading a large DLNA server library.
    11. NEW: Non-standard file associations for various DSD mimetypes added so that we can see those files from DLNA server libraries that are using those mimetypes.
    12. Changed: Some DLNA servers (like on the QNAP) don't properly provide the total number of files matched in a search, which limited us to seeing the first 1000 files in a library.
    13. Fixed: madVR could still be taking over the Ctrl+S "Stop Playback" key binding in some cases, now it always sends to Media Center instead. If you want a keybinding to open the madVR settings, open its configuration and assign it to an unused combination.
    14. NEW: Added the option "Advance to the next track when stopping after the current track" which defaults to true but allows you to turn it off.

    11. Fixed: The tooltip in the player window could not be translated.
    12. Fixed: When popup tooltip transparency was off, the background would always be white even if the text was white. Now it will be black if the text is brighter than half.

    7. NEW: Added the playlist format "M3U (extended)" to the types for a handheld to write the #EXTINF portion.
    8. Changed: TV recording on CableCARD channels in transport stream format is done in a different component from before. This change should not have any user noticeable effect. Should you see difference in behavior please report to us.

    10. Fixed: The truncation tooltip did not honor the transparency mode set in Options.

    5. Changed: TV recordings' post-recording processing is done slightly later to avoid conflicts. This is an attempt to fix post-recording file moving failures of JTV recordings.
    6. Changed: Error Free Mode is only persistent if specifically set with MCWS Configuration/ErrorFreeMode, not if its automatically engaged for headless playback.
    7. Fixed: Interactive playback queries, like "Bookmarking: Ask", did not function in recent versions of Media Center.

    2. Fixed: If a filename was too long, importing again with the long filename option set could still skip the file because it was in the bad database.

    2. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), the final result is saved in PlaybackInfo tag of the file, instead of the zone-specific settings, except when the file has Media Subtype of "System" (i.e. a calibration file).
    3. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), the result is saved only for the particular display type (i.e. 24 Hz display vs. other displays).
    4. NEW: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), an OSD message is shown to indicate current offset value.
    5. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD) on live TV, the final result is saved in PlaybackInfo tag of the TV channel.

    9. Changed: DLNA controller. Standardize function timeouts.
    10. Fixed: DLNA controller is more efficient making device calls. It only does so when it really needs to.
    11. Changed: Display of playback information in a DLNA zone which MC is not controlling is smooth and efficient.
    12. Changed: DLNA controller. SetNextAVTransportURI logic streamlined and made more bullet proof. NOTE your device still MUST support GetMediaInfo as well as SetNextAVTransportURI for gapless playback.
    13. Changed: DLNA controller. If SetNextAVTransportURI is NOT disabled as an option and we find a device doesn't support it or is broken MC will automatically turn off that option in the controller settings.
    14. Changed: Display of playback information in a DLNA zone which is transitioning tracks as the result of a SetNextAVTransportURI is very fast now.
    15. Changed: Update of the time slider in DLNA zones is more accurate and smooth. There MAY be issues with broken renderers. Need feedback here.

    3. Changed: The computer no longer goes to deep sleep while it's serving DLNA files.
    4. NEW: Added the zone ID and index to the tooltip for Playing Now zones.

This won't fix existing installations, the formats will need to be selected on them but new installations will work as previously intended.
    13. Fixed: MC could not read metadata tags in some WAVE files in recent builds.

    23.0.85 (11/27/2017)

    8. Fixed: TV recording folder names could be messed up (causing the folder not being able to be deleted) for shows whose names end with ellipsis (three consecutive '.').

    4. Changed: Updated the Chinese translation (thanks SunYanJun!).
    5. Fixed: Using the Tag Action Window could crash.

    5. NEW: "Season", "Episode", "Rule ID", and "Rule Name" can be optionally displayed in Standard view EPG views ("All Programs", "To Be Recorded", and "Recordings"). Default is to show them all.

    2. Changed: The Playing Now roller item is shown on the top roller when in playlists (previously it only showed in the library).
    3. Changed: Restoring a library with the restore library and restore settings checkboxes both un-checked will show an error message and not continue.

    7. Changed: If guide data file indicates that a show is an HDTV show, "HDTV" is added to keywords field.

    10. Fixed: Restoring the tree with Help > Check for Updates wouldn't redraw properly.
    11. Changed: MC will always compare dates when encountering "previously-shown" element in an xmltv file to determine whether a show is a re-run, if the "start" attribute is present. Previously re-run is assumed if "previously-shown" is present, without regard to the "start" attribute.
    12. Changed: If "date" element is not found for a program in an xmltv file, but "previously-shown" "start" attribute is found, the latter is saved in "Date" field.
    13. Changed: "OriginalAirDate" in PercData EPG files is saved in MC's "Date" field when loading PercData data.

  • Release Date: Jan 23, 2016
  • 21.0.39 (1/21/2016)

    2. Fixed: Mixed artist albums would display as multiple albums on library server clients that didn't use the same directory separator as the server.
    3. Changed: DVB-S tuner type is enabled for all countries on Television Setup wizard.
    4. Fixed: Text spacing could be off a little in build 38.
    5. Changed: Mouse wheel in television playback is handled in the same way as in video file playback. Mouse wheel without CTRL or SHIFT key skips forward/backward. Mouse wheel with SHIFT or CTRL key down zooms video.

    7. Changed: The behavior of pressing record button on remote control in Theater view televsion guide is changed. If the show has not been scheduled to be recorded yet, pressing the record button sets the show to be recorded. Pressing the button on a show already scheduled for one-time recording changes the one-time recording to a subscription. Pressing the button on a show scheduled for subscription cancels the subscription.
    8. Changed: The Unswap expression function understands Jr., Sr., etc. and does the unswapping special when those are present.

    9. NEW: Added MCC_PLAYBACK_ENGINE_VIDEO_ZOOM (28038) to set the zoom for a playing video.
    10. Changed: When starting Play Doctor playback from a right-click "More Play Options" on the current file, it will play out and then the results will play.

    1. Fixed: DSP Studio was blinking with VST effects installed (the fix is wider and might also make drawing in general more efficient).

    5. Changed: When loading XMLTV EPG data, all relevant fields are updated, instead of only updating those that are not empty. This prevents wrong data from being retained.

    12. Changed: Manage Channels dialog window is now resizable. It was tweaked so it will fit within monitor screen better with magnified screen sizes (such as 125% and 150%).
    13. Fixed: When setting the playback range back to an empty value the duration wouldn't update to the whole file (now it updates the library from tags on that change).
    14. Fixed: When loading XMLTV EPG data, re-run flag was not saved when its value was false. This caused previously saved bogus "true" value not to be corrected.

    21.0.25 (12/01/2015)

    1. Fixed: When switching tabs, the delete command would still route to the previous tab in some cases.
    2. Fixed: Fixed problems in the CD Labeler program where dialogs with checkboxes, scrollbars, and other elements were not displaying properly. Skinning was removed from CD Labeler and will return when MFC is removed from it.
    3. Fixed: When TV time-shifting reader filter performed seeking, it could try to wait for more data to be buffered than the buffering reader was set to buffer, resulting in unnecessarily long wait.
    4. NEW: In Theater View television guide grid, a green triangle is added in front of the program name of a currently playing show.
    5. Fixed: GIF images ended up with a JPG extension when getting artist images.

  • 21.0.24 (11/24/2015)

    19. Changed: The movie lookup code run by Auto-Import will only look a movie up every 30 days (instead of continually).
    20. Changed: Added validity check on postal code entered in television setup wizard and on television property page. Postal code entry is now mandatary. The degree of validity check depends on country.

    14. Changed: Updated Czech translation (thanks Jan Bohá&#269;).

    1. Fixed: Doing a play on a grouped artist, etc. tile would expand the files in a fixed way instead of using the sorting of the bottom list.

    10. Changed: Updated Italian translation (thanks Matteo!).
    11. Fixed: When setting up DVB-S (or DVB-C) tuners, MC displayed checkbox text "The tuner is capable of tuning to DVB-T2" instead of "DVB-S2" or "DVB-C2".

    1. Changed: Updated Japanese translation (thanks Kazuo!).

    3. Changed: The jriver namespace fields from jr: to jriver: to match the previous use of presenting the access key. A side effect of this is that all builds in use must be greater than 20.0.52 to use the volume leveling feature(this is only useful on a MC renderer from a MC server NOT doing conversion).

    7. Fixed: 8x DSD output wasn't working (testing appreciated).

    8. Changed: Updated FLAC encoder and decoder to FLAC 1.3.1.

    2. NEW: Added a 6 dB/octave mode for high and low pass filters in Parametric Equalizer.
    3. Changed: The import summary is presented as an Action Window and only shows a popup and switches to 'Recently Imported' if a user clicks 'Details' on the summary.
    4. Fixed: The new JRTelevision Dll did not work.
    5. Internal: Revised left mouse click handling so that single, double, and triple clicks are generated by JRiver's framework instead of the operating system (should be internal change, but please report any mouse related issues).
    6. Fixed: The installer could incorrectly want to reboot when it couldn't install the shell extensions.
  • 19.0.39 (9/16/2013)
    1. Fixed: Some handheld devices would not appear in the last few builds (due to the internal COM changes).
    2. Faster: When loading Theater View backdrops from multiple sources, all sources are loaded at once instead of loading one at a time.
    3. SDK: MCWS/v1/File/GetFile allows specifying a custom mime type for the response (to deal with carriers or ISPs that may block or throttle MP3 data).
    4. Faster: Netflix queue is downloaded 2 to 3 times faster due to using parallel threading. Cancel works better.
    5. Fixed: A few rare MP3 files could get slow to play or analyze.
    6. Fixed: The brightness / contrast skin effect could overflow and look bad when using SSE acceleration.
    7. Fixed: The removed FTP upload tool could incorrectly appear in the send to menu ( removed when MFC was removed: ).
    8. Changed: The JRiver ASIO driver allows the host to configure the driver buffer size instead of keying off Options > Audio > Live playback latency (this way programs that query for the buffer size of all ASIO drivers on startup won't cause MC to start).
    9. Changed: Socket buffer size to 32k.
    10. Changed: Allow re-use of the base socket listener for library server (non-windows versions).
    11. Changed: Adaptive Volume in 'Peak Level Normalize' mode would not use a fixed gain in some cases where it should have.

  • Release Date: Sep 12, 2013
  • 19.0.38 (9/10/2013)
    1. Fixed: The installer would always register the 64-bit shell extensions, leading to cases where shell extensions could show in Explorer when the option was off in MC (manually turn on, OK out of options, then turn off, and OK out of options to fix).
    2. Fixed: The custom library backup path validation could unnecessarily create the default folder.
    3. Changed: Rewrote several core MMX image manipulation routines in SSE (most around 2x faster and now work cross platform).
    4. Fixed: The visual mouse over state for an edit control would not always be honored properly.
    5. Changed: Adaptive Volume in 'Peak Level Normalize' mode normalizes on a per-track basis when Volume Leveling is off and on a per-playlist basis when Volume Leveling is on.
    6. Fixed: WPD camera acquisition could fail in the last few builds due to the internal COM changes.
    7. Changed: MC has a white list of device names that support system volume while bitstreaming, and no longer disables the system volume slider when playing to these devices (if you have a device like this, please provide details).
    8. Fixed: Audio device names with pipes or backslashes in them could cause problems in Options > Audio.
    9. Changed: Added experimental support for ASIO DSD output to devices that do not specify a DSD buffer format like Teac, maybe others (feedback appreciated).
    10. Fixed: If auto-import got canceled while analyzing audio, it would record it as an error and not try again for a year.
    11. Fixed: Column auto-sizing was not working in some areas.
    12. Fixed: The projection aspect ratio was inconsistent when switching between some 3d visualizations.

    3. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun).
    4. Fixed: Stopping or switching tracks during Library Server client playback could lead to a crash.
    5. Fixed: WASAPI with event style disabled could buffer shortfall unnecessarily in the last few builds (normally sounds like ticks).

    8. Changed: Updated the French language translation (thanks rlebrette).
    9. Fixed: If a connection to a Library Server was sporadic, it could lead to cases where a link to external cover art could be lost.
    10. Fixed: Mono ALAC files were not being parsed or played correctly.
    11. Fixed: DLNA slideshow push. The transition from first to second image in a playlist of images was not happening on the timer properly. This change may also make it more likely to work on devices that were having trouble with the slideshow mode.
Version 18.0.188
  • Release Date: May 19, 2013
  • 18.0.188 (5/17/2013)

    3. Fixed: The playback position could be incorrect when using a gapped playback mode.
    4. Fixed: In some cases, the player bar could draw incorrectly (only applies to the last few builds).
    5. Changed: The borders in Display View / Cover View will not hide while a right-click menu is showing.

    1. Fixed: Audio Path was not correctly reporting the output bitdepth in some cases due to the new audio bitdepth system.
    2. Changed: Removed WaveOut output plugin (it was a legacy mode only needed on (very) old versions of Windows that are no longer supported).
    3. Changed: Merged 'WASAPI - Event Style' and 'WASAPI' into a single output plugin. If you required 'WASAPI', you may need to reconfigure your audio output settings.
    4. Changed: ASIO supports encoding the output as AC3 using DSP Studio > Output Format (requires downstream AC3 decoder or you will hear white noise).
    5. Fixed: When scanning for Set Top Box channels, cable channels 3 and 4 were not presented as possible channels on which the set top box fed signal to capture device.

    3. Fixed: Some m4a and alac files would not import or play because of a mismatched sample count in the mp4 STTS header. We now ignore this error since it shouldn't impact playback performance.
    4. NEW: DLNA image slideshow when pushing an image playlist to a renderer. Follows slideshow logic that MC uses including the image duration in Options->Images->Slide Show Duration.
Version 18.0.180
  • Release Date: May 10, 2013

    7. Fixed: If a large Photoshop image failed to load, it could cause a crash.
    8. Faster: Decoding a PSD image saved as RGB (8-bit or 16-bit color) is much faster.

    1. NEW: Added Theater View support for SHOUTcast (add using Options > Theater View > Add...) (it's recommended that you reset file info templates for the best experience using Options > Theater View > Customize file info panel... > Manage... > Reset All Templates To Default).
    2. Fixed: Focus could shift unexpectedly to the list when navigating some rollers in Theater View with build 176.
    3. Changed: Added a new stock field 'Popularity' (string that supports flexible values; web radio uses it to put something like '3123 listeners' in).
    4. Fixed: The Theater View file info template option to 'Hide when empty' was not working for some fields like number of plays that showed 'never played' when empty.
    5. Changed: Theater View's Playing Now shows artist backdrops when playing web radio stations that contain ICY metadata.

  • 18.0.176 (4/29/2013)
    1. Changed: When there's a 3d drawing error, the error text will not appear for a little while so that coming out of madVR exclusive, which could require a reload of a 3d device, will look cleaner.
    2. Changed: If Theater View fails to load and reloads, it will stop trying to reload after 3 reloads in 30 seconds (to avoid looping forever if something isn't working).
    3. Changed: Red October will use DXVA Copy Back with nVidia hardware when possible instead of CUVID when using madVR ( ).
    4. Fixed: When returning to Theater View, sometimes the input focus could be unexpectedly shifted from the list to the roller.

    2. Fixed: Some videos during conversion would not detect the end of stream properly, so could stop a few seconds early.
    3. Changed: Removed the safety valve in the video converter that would stop a conversion if it stalled for too long (Red October should make it unnecessary, and it's possible the valve triggered in cases where it shouldn't).
    4. Changed: When multiple optical media disks are present, Theater View now shows the first one available rather than none.
    5. Fixed: Queued files for a data disc burn could not be seen because "Show files in subfolders" button was not available.

    8. Fixed: Crash could occur when clicking the "Rip Tracks" button in the CD header view.
    9. Changed: When ripping audio from multiple drives, the 'Details' button in the Action Window jumps to the first drive instead of showing an overview view for all drives (which didn't have the same functionality so could be a little confusing).
Version 18.0.174
  • Release Date: Apr 27, 2013
  • 18.0.174 (4/25/2013)
    1. Fixed: The progress shown for an individual video file during conversion was not displaying correctly.

    3. Fixed: If the computer slowed down too much during concurrent video conversions, it could stop a conversion early.
    4. Fixed: Encoding to ALAC could crash in some cases.
    5. Fixed: On the Import wizard, clicking cancel when it recommended not using an empty auto-import folder list would leave the wizard in a strange state.
    6. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
  • 18.0.173 (4/24/2013)
    1. Fixed: Pressing Pause button while television was playing in non-time-shifting mode put television in partially paused state (audio continued to play while video was paused).
    2. Fixed: CUE files that contained URLs in comments could lead to a crash.
    3. Changed: When saving a JPEG with a high quality (90 or higher quality, which is used for cover art saving), no chrominance subsampling will be used.
    4. Fixed: Horizontal scrolling in the Playing Now > Overview view was not working nicely.

  • 18.0.172 (4/22/2013)
    1. Fixed: The launcher didn't have the full program name embedded in it, so file associations could show they were associated with "Media" instead of "JRiver Media Center 18".
    2. Fixed: If a DLNA device requested metadata for a file that's no longer in the library (or never was in the library), it could crash.
    3. Changed: When converting a video file, aggregates with names like 'Index.bdmv' and 'Video_TS.vob' will use the name field for building the new filename instead of preserving the existing filename.
    4. Changed: Video conversion could stop early if the encoder paused for a while; now it waits much longer before deciding something went wrong.
Version 18.0.171
  • Release Date: Apr 21, 2013
