    With a previous version of the forum software, attachments had a "view count" or "download count" that indicated how many times the attachment had been viewed or downloaded. This disappeared when the new forum software was installed.

    I see that a "view count" has now re-appeared for attachments, but for me the count is always zero. Is this still a "work in progress"?

    quote from xf-dev: As of right now, video and audio attachments are served directly by the web server, rather than going through our PHP script. This is mostly for efficiency due to the way browsers make requests to these types of content. Thus, since the standard attachment viewing code is being bypassed, the view count won't be incremented. Overall, I think we'd consider that mostly as designed/expected for technical/efficiency reasons, with a likelihood that in the future, more attachment types (such as images) will be served in a similar way.
    I've removed the view count from templates so it's less confusing ;)

After many days of trying to get MePo to work, I’m afraid I gave up and jumped ship to Kodi - which worked first time without problems. After 10 years with Mediaportal, it was a huge shame to leave but I couldn’t get it to work at all with my new PC with integrated...

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    So maybe I've just overseen the bug in Jira. But the bug isn't a big problem as it only happens very seldom and you can still use MediaPortal, so I think i can live with it ;)
