    You will find the Pre Release version of MediaPortal 1.16.0 on our homepage now.
    Pre Releases are provided as a way for the community to test and give feedback on all the exciting things we have lined up for the next release. We allocate about one month for Pre Release testing. In that time we will only fix bugs, after which comes the final release!

    Highlights of this release
    • MediaPortal now supports BD-J
      Blu-ray Disc Java (BD-J) allows bonus content on Blu-ray discs to be far more sophisticated than bonus content provided by standard DVD. This includes network access, picture-in-picture and access to expanded local storage. You need to install Java to use this feature.
    • madVR (requires manual installation)
      madVR is a high quality DirectShow video renderer, designed as a no-compromise approach, which tries to achieve the best possible video playback quality.

    • Ares (skin)
      An amazing new skin from the designer of Apollo giving you 25 home buttons to configure exactly how you like.
      Rename labels, change images, swap out plugins and configure hyperlink parameters all within the home screen.
      Support and a button image template can be found in one of the following threads:

    • TV engine now supports broadcasts with HEVC/H.265 video e.g. DVB-T2 HD in Germany
    • For remote TV clients, a major update of the underlying RTSP client/server code to improve the speed of live TV channel changes, live & recorded seeking (skip steps) performance and IPTV reliability.
    • Live TV playback performs smooth matching of broadcast and PC stream rates, to reduce playback 'pauses' in some circumstances.
    • Better TV audio support (more AAC formats supported and other reliabilty improvements)
    • Separate settings for DVD and BD external players
    • Improved Wake On LAN support.
    • HID remote handler now supports multiple profiles
      This makes it easier for users to customize their remote control experience.
    Along with the above items we kept consolidating our software.

    Just did a short run, but great work from all. For me first time a skin after Titan, which could stay for longer time. Really like the fast clear gui. The menu has more items.

    Please bring 4k logo support in the next releases. 4K material is just shown with a blank info. Would also love audio logos (DTS, DTS HD, True HD, Atmos, AC 3, ...). Didn't see the last media banner. I must check that, think that is a option or some failure with my config.

    Nice also fritz call was working a should :)

    I really like the new build, especially the new Ares skin. I'm having a little problem with the clients not waking up the server though. Is anyone else seeing this?

    Hi,

    just as a note: there is no updated OnlineVideos Plugin available for 1.16 pre. The plugin version 2.2.0.0 gets disabled after installation and on startup of 1.16 Pre.

    Cheers

    That's not quite true. For now there's an unofficial release which should be compatible. You can find it attached to the first post of the MadVR development thread.

    [edit: Official release available now => links removed. Please install the official version. :) ]

    Ok, thanks. Did not know that. The MPE Manager offers no solution.

    So how should the average user of 1.16 Pre know about this unofficial version of OnlineVideos?


    Cheers

    @BlueMax1916
    Please keep in mind that this is a pre-release version of MP which was released one day ago on Christmas eve. Therefore it's no surprise that some plugin updates may not be ready yet. When offbyone is ready I'm sure he'll release an official update which is compatible with MP 1.16. That update will be available through the MPEM. Thanks for your understanding, and merry Christmas! :)
