    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: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=75971.0 ).
    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.
    12. Internal: Switched television engine from an MFC COM control (MJTVControl.dll) to a regular DLL (JRTelevision.dll).
Version 19.0.38
  • 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.

    2. Changed: The CSV text copied to the clipboard when copying from a list uses tab instead of comma as the delimiter.
    3. Fixed: Playing YouTube videos, MC would not resume playback after entering buffering state.
    4. Changed: Switched convolution based image effects (sharpen, emboss, etc.) to use SSE instead of MMX (should be internal change, but please report any issues).
    5. Changed: MC will now read and write replay gain (Volume Level) tags in Windows Media files.
    6. Fixed: Loopback was not working in the last couple builds due to internal COM changes.

    2. Fixed: MC could hang upon stopping when playing a video over the network (Library server, or YouTube etc.).
    3. Fixed: Direct Sound playback would not work with devices that didn't support 24-bit audio.
    4. Fixed: Video width and height fields could be filled incorrectly.
    5. Fixed: When converting from jtv television recordings, the converted files would have an incorrect aspect ratio. Make sure you correct width and height problem first (see 4. above) before retrying conversion.

    11. Changed: Wavpack files now display compression information.
    12. Changed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, Media Center will use "error free" mode so that playback errors won't cause message boxes to display (since the controller is normally in a different place).
Version 18.0.194
  • Release Date: Jun 6, 2013
  • 18.0.194 (6/3/2013)
    1. Fixed: Podcasting could cause the user interface to be sluggish in some cases when first starting the program.
    2. Changed: Switched Direct Sound output to always use 24-bit integer instead of 32-bit floating point (because it appears some devices don't work nicely with 32-bit floating point).
    3. Fixed: MC could hang or crash when changing television channels on the fly.
    4. Changed: Revised the presentation system used by Theater View on Windows 7 and Windows 8 to be more efficient (also fixes a Windows 8 dead-lock with regards to child windows intersecting with windowed 3d windows).

  • 18.0.193 (5/31/2013)
    1. Changed: Theater View, Display View, and Cover View are now always-on-top windows so that system dialogs are less likely to appear and/or steal the focus in these modes.
    2. Fixed: FLAC reference code would crash when encoding when an estimated total size was provided to the encoder, the 'verify' option was enabled, and encoding duration exceeded the estimated duration.
    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).

    7. Fixed: When connecting to a library that required a password, the program could dead-lock in some cases.
    8. Fixed: Entering a 'Q' value of over 1.0 for a shelf filter with Parametric Equalizer would cause crackling during output.

    5. Faster: The image editor and image preview uses the shared image playback cache to help performance.
    6. Fixed: Pushing enter in an image editor toolbox control could cause unexpected results.

    4. Fixed: Instructions shown over Theater View could flicker.
    5. Fixed: Child wizard dialogs, like used in Options > Remote Control, weren't supporting the OK and Cancel buttons properly in some cases.
    6. Changed: Radio buttons will use multiple lines for their text when necessary instead of truncating the text (helps with large font sizes).

    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)

Version 18.0.183
  • Release Date: May 15, 2013
  • 18.0.183 (5/13/2013)
    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.
  • 18.0.182 (5/10/2013)
    1. Fixed: ASIO playback of PCM was not working in build 181.

    2. Fixed: The playerbar in Display View would not reliably reappear after hiding unless the display was clicked.
    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
  • 18.0.180 (5/8/2013)
    1. Fixed: Theater View remote focus could shift incorrectly when using the on screen keyboard.

    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.

  • 18.0.177 (5/1/2013)
    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 ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=80258.0 ).
    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.
    6. NEW: Media network, add album art for xbox 360 videos.
    7. Changed: Media network, fix xbox 360 conversion crashes.
    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.
    5. Fixed: Long M4A files (over 10 hours) could show as 'Live' or with the wrong or empty duration in the library.
    6. Changed: MC no longer overrules custom video renderer selection when playing wtv/dvr-ms files.
    7. Changed: Flicking images from side to side with the mouse will no longer show the playerbar.
    8. Fixed: Starting a playlist of images + music playing could show a "failed to load image" for the first couple images.
  • 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.
