* Shortcuts supported
* Chat support (when the chat window is open it will auto-update in the background)

How have I only just now found out about this? Where do the donation funds end up? Do you promise to buy beer if I sent you some coin?

Awesome app, HTML 5 is better than flash anyday. I do have one minor suggestion. Putting some technical information by the play bar would be neat, maybe the bit and sample rate?

Let's face it, the donations aren't exactly rolling in, lol. I do appreciate them, and they help motivate me as far as features go. I'm glad that people like what I'm doing enough to toss me a few bucks! I would have ran out of ideas long ago if it weren't for people sharing them.

It looks like I can pull the bitRate and contentType (mp3, flac, etc), I'll toss that up somewhere. All the statistics out of SoundManager2 are for Flash only, except for bytesLoaded. If you hover over the progress bar you will see that represented as a percentage.

Promise, I buy beer, lots of it! Although I'm sure my beer purchase rate > donations received.

I get paid next week I'll send some money your way.

A few more ideas, I'm not sure the subsonic api allows for these or not:

Ability to refresh the subsonic database from within minisub
Ability to disable/enable scrobbling from within minisub

Just discovered MiniSub. This is great stuff. Gonna have to continue kicking the tires on this, but for the 20 minutes I've been playing with it, it's quite impressive.

Excellent work!

Love MiniSub.

I just wanted to ask one thing that I'm not clear on...should MiniSub work on iOS devices since it's HTML5? I was under the impression it should, but whenever I click on a song I get "Media URL could not be loaded. Check Media URL is valid."

Depending on what version you are using I switched to http://www.jplayer.org as of 2.2.7, you can see if their demos work. I'm sure there are IOS apps you can purchase. Nothing's free, well if your using an Apple device that is, the Android app is free...

Oh yeah, I have iSub and it works fine. I just like the MiniSub interface as well.

Great work on the MiniSub.

Is there a way to go back/up one level on the folder view? A shortcut or something.

I like the breadcrumbs you added.

Some ideas:

* When multiple people are using the server, make the text showing what the people are listening to clickable, taking them to the album they are listening to.
* The chat window seems to lag. I have to click inside the box and scroll down to get messages to pop up that were sent minutes before.
* Toggle Last.FM scrobbling.
* Make the "Now Playing" page a bit more unique. Make the album art a larger portion of the screen, maybe pull some artist/album info down from the web?

I'm playing with the beta version, still lovin' it! Thanks!

I really like the changes you've made. A few things I've noticed though.

If you navigate to an artist through the library tab, then switch to the now playing tab and click an album from that, the breadcrumbs still show the artist selected through the library tab, but the album is the album you clicked on.

From the very most recent stable update (2.3.6), I've noticed the Chrome HTML5 audio freezing bug occurring much more frequently. Previously I would only see it occasionally when I would just start a new playlist or resume from pause. I just got the new update in the last day or two, but I've seen it much more frequently, even without pausing a track.

Also, I've gone to bed with a song paused the last few nights and woken up to the MiniSub tab gone. I can't be 100% sure I didn't just close it, but I rarely do that. I'm not sure if it's crashing, or if it closes when it updates, or some other reason, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

EDIT: I'm happy to post logs or whatever if you tell me what you need.

EDIT 2: "Current Playlist will stay focused on the current track" doesn't appear to be working anymore.
