AVSub 9 for iOS - Jukebox Mode, SSL, Play Queue

Postby rich600 » Sun Apr 12, 2015 10:15 pm

Hi all,

AVSub V9 is hitting the App Store now. This time round we've got :

* Jukebox Mode - play audio direct on your server hardware (in-app purchase).
* Now-Playing queue - add tracks next or at the end of the play queue. Swipe down to show the queue, rearrange it, delete stuff, or jump around in it.
* SSL - support for SSL connections, including self-signed. Works with the out-of-the-box Subsonic self-signed certificate.

Also contains the single-album ID3 mode bug fix, plus a few others (many iOS 7 layout issues).

I've done a quick update to the FAQ and Guides on the site to give details of the new features (in particular the play queue in the Guides).

I have a list of features for V10, but I think there will be a V9.5 with a single surprise jukebox-based feature - I'm just prototyping now (literally!).

Cheers
Rich

hmm...the fact that both Subsonic and Polysonic (each html5 apps) had this problem (in Subsonic, I found and fixed it before release) makes me wonder if the server actually broke this. What happens is that the ID3 album query out-of-the-box ignores the discNumber. It is in the results, but the server doesn't bother the way it sorts things by filename when in non-ID3 musicDirectory mode.

So the app becomes responsible for having to sort the results instead. If this is a "new" bug, then perhaps the server did change and the apps were just expecting this to be right. If it is new merely because this is the first time AVSub has done ID3, then the same lesson learned by myself and the Polysonic author is learned again. :)

On the API forums, Sindre didn't seem to think this is a problem.

Hi,

from the image I can see that disc numbers have not been returned from the server, otherwise the results would be in sections.

How was this solved in Polysonic then? It worked previously.

In SubFire, I try to sort by discNumber if it is there (else I treat discNumber as 0). I just found that I had to do that sorting myself because the server didn't do it for me. Yes I do see it when I make the getAlbum query.

Try going back to the front screen and hitting the refresh button (top left). It looks like its not be in ID3 mode. I think I saw this locally today - maybe a bug that it doesn't go into ID3 mode straight away.

In ID3 mode, you should see track times and other details in that view and they're not there.

Hi,

that feature is still high on the backlog, and at the moment would be a release 12 feature. Release 11 is in the early stages now and release 10 is in review.

Cheers
