Hi.
Just a short question:
Would it be possible to add a "Genre" View in the Music-Area? Otherwise the list with all Artists is quite Long and takes some time to load - would be nice if it would be possible to Change this to a Genre view (like in TV-Series and Movies)?

Thanks

    Sure thing! Thanks for the lightening reply!:D

    It's only a test DB here in the office. All files on a NAS (well WHS).
    Actually, it seems to work for me with that database... Can you try to go to the settings tab in WebMP, select MyVideos as "Movie database" and check again? If it still doesn't appear, validate the path to the database inside the MPExtended configuration. If that doesn't work, please attach your logs here and I'll see what's wrong ;)

    Good idea, added to TODO.

    hello oxan, I have played a little bit with the web-interface.

    I have some suggestions:

    Music:
    In the music sections you are showing all the artists and try to drill down to their albums. If you have artists on a sampler album the don't have own albums and the list for these artists is empty.
    From my point of view it would be a good idea th have more than one artist views:
    A first view with albumartist, a separate field in the database, when drilling down the albums of the choosen albumartist should be shown
    A second view with the artists. When drilling down all the titles of the artist should be shown.

    A very comfortable but complex to implement feature could be to read the the view definitions for music out of the MePo configuration. There is an option to define the views.

    Tv-recording view: I have a lot of recordings.they are shown in an alphabetical order Is it possible to show and group them as it is within MePo?

    Moving pictures:
    I have entries from bluerays and dvds in my database. It the webinterface does not make a different between entries with existing files and entries from disks where there is no possibility to play them.

    And at least: very good work congratulations

    Fresh Install, I changed port to 80 since I have something else on 8080.

    I get an error only in TVseries, Moving Pictures and Music work fine. From the home page I can select the recent tv episodes, but cannot click on the link for TVSeries at the top nor choose genre from the drop list.

    I'll see if I can do anything about this for 0.6.

    Tv-recording view: I have a lot of recordings.they are shown in an alphabetical order Is it possible to show and group them as it is within MePo?
    Yes, a rework of the recording page has already been planned for 0.6.

    Moving pictures:
    I have entries from bluerays and dvds in my database. It the webinterface does not make a different between entries with existing files and entries from disks where there is no possibility to play them.
    I'm not really sure how we can differentiate between those items and entries from disks... I'll take a look, but can't promise anything.

    And at least: very good work congratulations
    Thanks!

    Fresh Install, I changed port to 80 since I have something else on 8080.

    I get an error only in TVseries, Moving Pictures and Music work fine. From the home page I can select the recent tv episodes, but cannot click on the link for TVSeries at the top nor choose genre from the drop list.
    Thanks, fixed for 0.5.1.

    How to change from port 8080 to another port?

    Ooops sorry found it in the GUI Config :). Should https also work because it seems I can´t enter the webinterface on LAN when https is activated, but maybe the port is in use.

    It's only a test DB here in the office. All files on a NAS (well WHS).

    Hi Oxan,

    The above didn't help :( .

    However, I just installed Moving Pictures and I can now switch between the Moving Pictures and MyVideos databases in settings without a problem and the change is corrected reflected when browsing the movies in WebMediaPortal! So, it looks like the problem only occurs if Moving Pictures isn't installed. Hope that helps.

    Cheers,

    Wo0zy

    Any option to change the soundtrack?
    I guess WebMP takes the first track but i need the 2nd one :D
    Sorry, not yet.
    You don't need to set this on services.msc anymore, you can just set a user in the MPExtended config...
    Yes, that's right, though setting it in services.msc doesn't hurt either.
    Separate question - is the streaming timeout after 40 mins or so from version 0.4.3 fixed in the latest version?
    It should be.
    Hi Oxan,

    Many THX for this new version. Installed yesterday evening and tested @home ( LAN ). So Direct / HTTP / Flash streaming are working ( TV and Recording ).
    Today i tried to connect via Internet to my server. I can login, stream via Flash ... but no Direct Streaming for TV is possible. I have set to With Proxy, but the stream does not start. Same Client works if i´m connected via LAN and also works if i choose Flash. So i think its not a firewall problem. What i´m wonder is that the Recordings with the same settings are working over Internet. Only Live TV does not work

    Please check the Log
    From the logs it looks like this happens because the client disconnects... which is strange. Is there anything in your IIS logs or Windows error logs about this?
    Hi Oxan,

    Some more Test .. but direct Live-Tv-Streaming via Internet does not work. Recordings are working fine with the same Internet Access / Client / Software.

    I have an WHS 2011 and use the internal IIS. So locally connected via LAN works fine.
    I think the Problem is the Proxy stuff. I don´t believe, that the Router or Firewall is the problem, because the Recordings are working fine.
    Would be great if you could look a little bit further.
