    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    Hi!

    I just got my Windows Home Server, a fujitsu 2205. It works very good and I downloaded Asset UPnp 2 Beta and tried it. What I need is transcoding of files as I have most of my library in Apple Lossless and my PS3 does not support that. Although I also got a Soundbridge which supports Apple Lossless. So my suggestion is that it should be possible to select transcoding possibilties on device level. Do you think that's possible and will be available in Asses UPnp?

    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    I just wanted to report that for the first 30 minutes plus after booting my computer uMediaLibrary.exe thrashes my hard drive to the point that my system becomes nearly unresponsive. This is in spite of the fact that this processes priority is set to "low". Once I shut down the AssetUPnP service my system returns to normal responsive operation. Is there anything I can do to minimize Assest's impact on my system when performing background activities (i.e. not streaming)?

    Thanks.

    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    Update 21st June

    Changes:

    **** Fix to internet radio compatibility ****

    Will now ignore files starting with '._' (which Apple MACs can create as 2nd files containing extra finder data)
    New option (on by default) to replace 'The Artist' with 'Artist, the' [** requires library rescanning - refresh all]
    New option (on by default) to place the disc number before track number on multi disc sets (for those discs where disc 2 has the same album name as disc 1)

    Download as first message.

    Spoon

    thanks for the update. A few observations:

    - great new option for sorting multiple-disc-albums! Helps a lot! Unfortunately, discs starting from number 10 up get sorted before discs 2 and up: 1, 10, 11, 12, 13...., 3, 4

    - Composer sorting by [A - Z] still displays unwanted content: a few entries for other letters are displayed as well. This is the only [A-Z] sorting, that does not work, even custom tags don't have this problem.

    - Style tag: not supporting multiple styles delimited with ; only the first style is displayed, the follow-up styles are ignored in the list

    - Custom tags (configured for multiple entries delimited by ; ) are not displayed properly: they are sorted by the first entry, but if there are multiple entries, the follow-up entries are displayed separated with a ; instead of individually . So you get the following display:
    a1
    a2
    .
    .
    b1
    b2; some other value 1
    b2; some other value 2; some other value 3
    b2; some other value 4
    b3
    .
    .
    in other words: when the tag would be a lyricist, and some lyricists have worked together with others (multiple entry delimited with ; ), you would display those entries "as written" in the tag-entry, but not each lyricist's name individually

    - problematic discovery of the server by PlugPlayer: can't immidiately browse the server's content after a restart of Plugplayer (and also a server restart), though Linn Sneaky can still continue to play a current playlist and also, this playlist can still be controlled by PlugPlayer. It's all about not being able to browse the server. Instead, I have to wait until a new instance of Asset is discovered - like initially, before you corrected that with using the same port, I do get multiple entries of Asset in the server list again - and it takes 30 seconds to a minute, before the entry shows up in PlugPlayers configuration. This happened after upgrading to Cara. It seems to be some strange interaction between PlugPlayer (latest versions), Cara (all betas) and Asset - don't know, where it originates from.

    Thanks again for the update. I hope, these observations can be of some use.

    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    Update 5th July

    New option (off by default) to remove 'the ' from album name also
    New option for Asset not to perform a Reresh (detecting changes) scan on start,
    Internally caches the listings, so if back-tracking when browsing will be much faster
    New Status Line (of scanning engine and how manu tracks) added to Asset Config (or Asset Settings page in WHS)
    Uses a fixed UDN ID
    Playlists added (dynamic: newest, most played, least played and static playlists .m3u, .m3u8 and .pls) (in Asset Configuration >> Advanced >> Edit >> Restore the browse tree to add Playlists).
    If removed a folder (from meida library watched folder, but tracks are left) then tracks are not removed asset
    Added option to browse by files/folders (have to add the tree item Folders & File Browse in Asset Configuration)

    bug fix: if set the force to mp3 (but had not extensions forced), then would not save as mp3 selected (internet radio uses)


    ------
    dvdr: thanks for the reports - will go onto issue sorting once Asset v2 becomes feature rich (quite soon).

    My pleasure to support this great product
    Here are first observations after the update:

    - Server-discovery with PlugPlayer works like a charm now, whatever you changed, it helped :D
    - great, that you'll have a look into the different sorting issues :smile2:
    - Haven't tested the playlist feature, yet, since I first have to save my quite heavily user-configured browse tree...

    "Feature rich quite soon" ??? I already thought, Asset has great features - sounds exciting !!!!!!!

    Playlist handling in Asset

    Forgot in the previous message to say how playlists are handled:

    Playlists added (dynamic: newest, most played, least played and static playlists .m3u, .m3u8 and .pls) (in Asset Configuration >> Advanced >> Edit >> Restore the browse tree to add Playlists).

    Once the browse tree item 'Playlists' is added you can use the automatic generation of 'Most Played' 'Least Played' 'Newest' (all either track or album).

    To Add m3u and pls files you would add another folder to the auto library (this time pointing to the playlist folder) and set the 'Contains' Line on the end to 'Playlists'

    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    Question: why would adding a user-defined browse tree in Asset Configuration (Orchestra->A to Z->Album)
    end in the following AssetUPNPDefinedBrowseTree.txt:

    Orchestra{_no_track_list_}
    Orchestra\[A to Z]{_no_track_list_}
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra \Orchestra
    Orchestra\[A to Z]\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra\Orchestra \Orchestra\Album
    Orchestra\Album

    This happens quite frequently with other user-defined browse trees as well...

    Is that copy and paste from the browse tree? because the 2nd+3rd Orchestra from the bottom have ' ' space before the last \

    Re: Asset UPnP (DLNA) Release 2

    Hi Spoon

    this actually is a direct copy and paste from the AssetUPNPDefinedBrowseTree.txt in the "local-service....." folder.
    What I did was: go into Asset Config and there, add a user-defined element, then (as a child) A-Z and then, as a child of that, Album.
    This action seems to result in the posted output (and that also happens, when I do the A-Z with other elements). Your predefined browse tree elements do not show that behaviour. This, by the way, is not the outcome of the new beta of Asset, I already saw that with 2 previous betas.

    I also have another question for you, regarding your new playlist option:
    I managed to "install" it, set it to display a maximum of 100 items and did a complete, full rescan of my database. After the rescan, I got a display of different browsing options, but all of these show me 100 items, that I have not played before, that are not within recently/most/never played albums or tracks.
    When I choose an album and play it, delete it from the PlugPlayers playlist, add it again or do the same with a track and play that track a dozen times, they all do not show up in the recently played, most played or whatever applicable options there are.
    Can you give me any advice, what to do? Is there any way to "reset" the "counter"?

    Like always: thanks in advance for your support and your continous work to provide updates and this great tool!
