You have got to love a product that has such an active developer... this was a Feature Request that I submitted just 6 days ago!

He even handled the third part of the request, which was to kill the Subsonic-Agent.exe program during installation if it is running to surpress the "cannot replace subsonic-agent.exe" message that used to come up during an upgrade. It even killed the second copy running under a disconnected Remote Desktop session!

Thanks Sindre!

Kudos! :D

I just upgraded one of my servers. Upgrade was flawless and effortless. Upgrade retained port number and all settings from previous version. It actually took longer to do the download than to run and test the install.

Great job Sindre!

Hi Sindre,

I agree, nice work on the "release often" philosophy. You're making the rest of us open source authors look bad. :)

Could you elaborate? Does this mean you can browse as https:// and then stream as http:// ?

in the windows version it's as simple as checking a checkbox to allow h t t p s support. Then browsing and streaming over the https port just work...

Hi Sindre,
I have a quick question on how to make my name.subsonic.org redirect to https. When i try to browse to http://name.subsonic.org it will redirect me to http://x.x.x.x:442/subsonic instead of https://x.x.x.x:442/subsonic. Causing a blank page to show up.

OS = Windows Server 2008
WebServer = Running Tomcat 6
Subsonic = 4.4.beta1


Thanks for the wonderful product and the frequent updates.

Question for all you subsonicguys out there:

How much cpu is ffmpeg taking when playing movies through subsonic?
I just know.

Sounds like a bug. It' supposed to redirect like this: http://name.subsonic.org -> http://x.x.x.x:8080/subsonic -> https://x.x.x.x:442/subsonic

Could you please post or PM me your subsonic.org address so I can look into it?

Thank you!

amazing
thx for the easy way to https

btw. is it possible to have more than one server in the android app?
That means, does it make sense to convince my friends to set up their subsonic server? ;)

The android app has the facility to save three different server's information.

One thing I have not tried: can I add items to my playlist on the 'droid app from multiple servers? I'll have to go test...

HTH,

I just realized my source of confusion. I reverse proxy the server, so https:// was already working. I realized that https:// was added to the native hosted server under port 442.

The problem I have is that most players don't support streaming over https. Is it possible to host the website over https but force the streams to default to http?
