Version history / Release notes / Changelog

24.0.34 (6/7/2018)

1. Fixed: Panel - The disable forced conversion option was breaking video playback.
2. Changed: TV does a better job purging clients that have stopped interacting with the server.
3. Fixed: Wrong info could be reported in "TV Logs" when there was a critical error on the TV engine.
4. Changed: TV does a better job of cleaning up when a critical error is encountered.
5. Fixed: Sorting on complicated expressions could crash.

10. Changed: For the list of "Recordings" in Standard TV view, "Configure Recording" and "Cancel Recording" buttons are no longer available for TV shows that are being served to clients as those actions do not make sense.
11. Changed: Remove uncompressed file types (wav, aif) from 'Upload to Cloud' qualifying list.
12. Fixed: Dr. Who playlist downloading wasn't working.
13. Fixed: Uploaded playlists created on Mac weren't playable on Windows.

24.0.33 (6/7/2018)

1. Changed: Italian translation updated (thanks Matteo).
2. Changed: Adjusted audio buffering during Blu-ray Menu playback to allow for higher audio processing latency (ie. with Convolution).
3. Fixed: When the name filed switched back to blank after playing a radio stream (or similar) it would update the name field in the database to blank.
4. NEW: Panel - When going to the Playing Now page, the list will jump to the currently playing track.
5. NEW: Panel - Added an alphabetic seek to the folder view page change controller.
6. Changed: Panel - Added color to the stream buttons on the Streaming page and adjusted the color of the Streaming page button.
7. Fixed: Panel - The Panel theme was missing from an element.
8. Changed: Minor additions and corrections in Chinese translation.
9. NEW: One can specify a folder on an alternative hard disk for TV recording and time-shifting (must be on a different hard drive). Useful for people who record a large number of shows simultaneously.
10. Changed: Added a translation item "Channels^^TV^^" to distinguish TV channels from audio channels.
11. Changed: The MCWS call Playlist/Files returns a copy of the files with links included.
12. Fixed: Sidecar files were created erroneously for some audio files supporting internal tagging, even if the sidecar mode was "Save in sidecar if internal tagging is not supported". This happened when audio option "write tool name and version" was off.

16. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).

20. Fixed: Stopping Radio Paradise right after it was started would stall waiting for the upcoming tracks to load.
21. Changed: Double the amount of pre-buffer when playing a Radio Paradise track to hopefully avoid cut-outs between tracks.

23. NEW: Support for playing Dolby Digital/Dolby Digital Plus in audio-only MP4 files.
24. Fixed: Playing Blu-ray Menus with tightly packed TrueHD frames could result in playback failure.

27. Changed: Panel - Clicking on the Playing Now page button while on the Playing Now page will bring the currently playing item (if there is one) into view.
28. Changed: Panel - The background of the currently playing item in the Playing Now list has a different shade to make it more visible.
29. NEW: TV Engine would try to stop run-away recordings in case the main thread is blocked for some reason.
30. Changed: LipSync default adjustment amount is changed from 50 ms to 10 ms.
31. Fixed: DLNA: Do a direct query of the volume of a DLNA renderer zone when we it's not the current zone (or JRemote/Gizmo will show 0 volume)
32. Changed: Pressing escape will leave the fullscreen browser view.
33. Changed: German translation updated (thanks ByteStar).
34. NEW: Panel - Added an option to the settings page to disable MP3 conversion when playing to the browser. If disabled, Panel will attempt to play the file without conversion parameters. If it fails to play, it will fallback to the transcoded version.

36. Fixed: Locking or unlocking a playlist when there were multiple playlists visible in a split view would lock or unlock all of them instead of only the correct view.

I've been using this software for 4 years. I do not feel the need to update. All I need is there.I use a hometheatre connected to the computer to listen and watch movies (all kind of format *.mkv *.mp4.....).The function I like is the conversion on the fly from DTS to DolbyDigital. and the ability to create different zones and automatically assign depending on the format.
Very flexible software. What I do not like is its graphical user interface: it's confusing, not user friendly and very old.

This software crashes my video card driver (standard AMD driver latest version). No other software including games does this. It is only playing videos which all play fine in other software vlc/kodi etc but this software does something weird with the device driver. Very little mention of problems on their forums so I can believe the 'censor' comment above. They always seem to blame the driver rather than their use of it.

I think I'll go back to Kodi.

Sep 8, 2017 Version: 23.0.48 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 4/10 Overall: 6/10

I have been looking for a replacement for iTunes for my fairly large (2TB - 220,000 tracks) library for a number of years. On a PC, iTunes is slow to boot, slow to add tracks, slow to search, and generally more unusable with each release. I've tried Songbird, foobar and MediaMonkey, and went back to iTunes each time.

A friend recommended JRMC and I have now ditched all my other audio player software - this is very fast, has a small system footprint and does what I want. Fine for accessing data from a NAS across a wired network. It has not replaced XBMC as a HTPC video player for me yet since (as far as I can tell so far), it has to work from its own database, it won't just list file trees on the fly like XBMC will in file mode.

Very happy with JRMC and it's ended a painful 7 year relationship with iTunes for me. :)

Mar 11, 2013 Version: 18.0.128 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 8/10 provides a better and free product.
The J.River product here does NOT just cost $40. You are signing on to a lifetime of paying again and again. Each year or so, they fix bugs add some new features and try to charge you again for the next release. After several years of these shenanigans you could have bought a new computer. Besides, their program is very confusing. Their .447 version mysteriously deleted your music files from you hard drive, without warning!! And they have a very bad reputation for censorship on their forums for anyone who dares to challenge them. You need this like a hole in the head!
