skipped the betas this go round just updated

thanks again for keeping up with the project

as always I do a couple of tweeks when I reinstall

when clicking on a shared link the external or shared player only plays one song then stops would like it to auto play the whole folder 1 song or title after the other. Kinda pointless to share a playlist or folder and have to go back and click each song when you want it to play imo

anyone figure out how to do this in new version let me know.

If i find the old tip i will post update posted below
still looking for the tweek to shrink or remove right.view where chat is located to give home.view more space so that more album covers can be seen

thanks in advance for any help or pointing me in the right direction

here it is
Thanks VERY much for this addition. To complete this in Windows,
- Stop Subsonic Service
- Make a backup copy of the subsonic.war file (in case you scew up).
- Open subsonic.war file with 7Zip. If 7zip is installed, just right click on subsonic.war and select Open Archive. Do not extract the file.
- Navigate within 7zip to the Web-INF\jsp\ folder and right click the externalPlayer.jsp file. Select "Edit" from within 7Zip. The file should open with Notepad.exe.
- On the first page you should see the following:
<script type="text/javascript">
function init() {
var flashvars = {
id:"player1",
screencolor:"000000",
frontcolor:"<spring:theme code="textColor"/>",
backcolor:"<spring:theme code="backgroundColor"/>",
stretching: "fill",
"playlist.position": "bottom",
"playlist.size": 200,
};
- Find the line "playlist.size": 200, and then press Return on your keyboard to add another line. Then Tab over and add the following: repeat:"list" . Don't forget the quotes.
- So when done what you should have is this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function init() {
var flashvars = {
id:"player1",
screencolor:"000000",
frontcolor:"<spring:theme code="textColor"/>",
backcolor:"<spring:theme code="backgroundColor"/>",
stretching: "fill",
"playlist.position": "bottom",
"playlist.size": 200,
repeat:"list"
};
- close and save the file externalPlayer.jsp.
- close 7zip and save the file.
- restart the Subsonic service.

Just updated from 4.8. No issues updating using the .deb. Everything looks great. I couldn't survive work without subsonic! Thank you for such a great application Sindre.

*Edited to actually say thank you.*

Went straight from 4.7 to 4.9 and everything is looking good. Thanks, Sindre!

[edit]: And thanks to those who beta tested 4.9! :D

I would still like to be able to share media without needing to set up a 'subsonic.org' address, but by just using my own domain.

Thnx for the release! Perfect!

Only the upnp incompatibility remains... But I'm sure you're planning a 5.0 release also :-)

The default message after klicking a 'Share link' is: "To share your music with someone you must first register your own subsonic.org address.
Please go to Settings > Network (administrative rights required)."

on 'Settings > Network' the following can be found:

"Access your server over the Internet using an easy-to-remember address.

http://[chosen subdomain] .subsonic.org"


What I would like to use is: "https://[chosen subdomain].[chosen domain]" instead.

Of couse one can always edit the sources.... but it would be much more convenient if there would just be a standard option for this.

I finally upgraded the server. It is always a pain due to having to inject the ssl cert into the jar file. Not done right, your ssl doesn't work.

Have to say, again, thank you Sindre for all your hard work. Everything appears to be flawless.

I too was wondering how to play one song in the 4.9 final.
When I select one it loads the whole directory.
Thanks.
I love Subsonic!

you just have to press the "+" instead of the play arrow...that will add just that song to the playlist. I myself do not like that change either, I know other music programs operate this way, but I would like to have seen it as an option instead.

The upgrade process de-registers the subsconic service and re-creates it which will wipe out the config of that service. Specifically two configs that I had 1) start as a network user to have access to network share where media resides, and 2) automatic restart of service on error.
