Subsonic 5.2.1 released

Postby sindre_mehus » Wed Mar 04, 2015 7:44 pm

I've just released a bugfix version 5.2.1, addressing these defects:

Bugfix: Fixed popping sound when starting songs in jukebox mode.
Bugfix: Download playlist is broken.
Bugfix: Hide dock icon on Mac OS.
Bugfix: Unable to play podcast if located outside media folders.
Bugfix: Scrobbled songs don't appear in "Now playing".
Bugfix: Support native streaming of ALAC and AAC to Sonos (see sonos.subsonic.org for details)
Bugfix: Support streaming to Sonos from remote Subsonic servers (see sonos.subsonic.org for details)

Thanks

Hi Sindre would you be able to look at the issue we are facing with the User Interface of Subsonic?

Awesome. I will check the external Subsonic/Sonos feature asap.

The flac and aac without transcoding is working a treat. What was needed to get this to work?

Thanks once for such a great and ever improving piece of software.

Thanks for the update! Love Subsonic.

I'm still seeing an issue with the last.fm behavior. The track starts, then last.fm is updated with a "Now Playing" status, then immediately afterwards, a scrobble is submitted. You can see this behavior in the log snippet below. On last.fm you can see this as well -- repeatedly clicking "Refresh" in the Recently Played Tracks section will show a track as "Now Playing" for a second or two, then it changes to "Just listened" because it just got clobbered by a scrobble submission.

Code: Select all

I cited the last.fm docs in a bug post here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15339.

Ideally the flow should be like:
1) track is started
2) last.fm "now playing" submitted
3) track paused/stopped/skipped/finished
4) if the total track length is > 30sec and 50% of the track (or 4min) was played, THEN submit a scrobble

Am I the only one having issues with transcoding after upgrading?

External Subsonic + Sonos access is working perfectly.

Is there a way to use a dns name instead of IP and the code gets the IP at run-time? Or is this a limitation on the Sonos side of things? I am just thinking of the case where my external IP address changes this will break the service for my external Sonos players.

Thanks so much again!

I am still seeing log errors when enabling the Sonos service via the interface.

192.168.1.200 is a Boost
192.168.1.202 is a Sub
192.168.1.207 is a Play:1

Seems the Boost and Sub can't be used to add a custom service descriptor. The good thing is that the registration ultimately works so this isn't really critical but it would be nice to suppress these messages from the logs.

I'm now seeing songs transcoded to lower quality that weren't being transcoded previously. All accounts are set to a max bitrate of 0, and all of a sudden I'm seeing entries like this:

Code: Select all
[3/5/15 11:18:02 AM CST]   INFO   PlayQueueInputStream   jamie listening to "90125\01 - Yes - Owner Of A Lonely Heart.mp3"

Note that mp3 is not in my list of extensions to trascode:

Thanks, Sindre!
Especially for fixing the popping sound that has annoyed me a bit for the last years. =) It was great listening to a couple of albums without the pops.

But something else has popped up ;) Since I was made aware that it was possible, I have turned off all transcoding options for my jukebox player, and things have played nicely. I won't say I can hear the difference between FLAC and mp3 V0, but I see no reason to transcode to mp3 when I don't have to. Anyway, today some of my files have been playing at what seems to be half speed, like a 45-record played at 33 1/3. I haven't spent much time looking into this, but it seems to me like it's the 24/96 FLAC files that are suddenly acting up. Are you aware of any changes that should cause them to play differently? I'm (almost) sure I've played those files in jukebox mode before today without this problem.

Also I was told to pass on a big thank you from one of my users who is now a very happy sonos-owner. =)

Hi,

I just wanted to say that this has become an AWESOME combination.

MediaMonkey
Subsonic
SONOS

Have it working both locally and remotely.

Normally, I just quietly read the posts and 'benefit' from all the hardwork done by yourself and others. But what I experienced today has completely exceeded my expectations ...

Many thanks
