Looks like my problem with the progress bar and duration counter is related to transcoding: I don't see the issue with MP3 files, just AAC and ALAC files.

I have been trying out the MiniPlayer bundled with 4.7beta3, I noticed some issues with the time bar: it displays no duration but 'NaN:NaN/NaN:NaN'. The issue occurs when listening to mp3 as well as (transcoded) Apple Lossless/aac m4a files. The regular Subsonic player has no issues.

log warning (might be related?):
'WARN RESTFilter Error in REST API: EofException'

Trying to use the MiniPlayer on a netbook using the latest Cromium OS Lime build. The version of MiniSub bundled with the latest Subsonic beta works wonderfully, but with the MiniSup chrome app none of my music would play. The album art would show in the player, but the time would remain at 0:00 and the play button would not respond.

This is most likely due to the latest Chromium builds having limited html5 media support due to licensing issue, but since it works in the bundled miniplayer I'm hoping there's some way to get the chrome app working.

Any help with this would be awesome. I've bookmarked the bundled miniplayer for quick access, but I'd prefer the app so it can be pinned to my chromium launcher bar.

EDIT: This also seems to be the case with any chromium based browser (such as Rockmelt). The chrome app will not work on anything other than official ChromeBooks and Google Chrome, but the bundled MiniPlayer works fine.

I should load up the latest beta and see how Sindre implemented it. I knew it was going in, just not sure how.

After looking at the readme on github it looks like this is for audio only, any plans on getting this working for video files?

Why is my library not loading up in MiniSub?

I clicked the little sub icon and it takes me to the login page of my subsonic server, which works. And Subsonic works flawlessly on my Android, streaming and transcoding so my server IS setup correctly.

Tried entering my server IP as and and neither work (Android app works both INSIDE and OUTSIDE my network, so port forwarding works perfectly fine as well).

Edit: Working now. Not sure what it was though, I changed the port, the url I was trying to use, and used Windows Services to give it full admin access. One of those worked.

Not sure if I'm just blind and can't see how to do it. But how do you add a whole artist to the current playlist? I usually listen to 1-2 shuffled artists at the time.

Truly excellent player! I use it at work and home every day now instead of the original interface. Love it!

• A nice little feature would be if the "current playlist" tab could auto-scroll to the currently playing row so that you don't have to scroll through the list and locate the highlighted row to see where you're currently at on the playlist.

• It would also be great if we could easily pull up a playlist of all starred tracks.

• And finally, the ability to create a random playlist from a selected folder. Right now it pulls a random list from ALL folders which for me will include multiple genres when I only want it to pull from one folder/genre.

Keep up the great work and THANK YOU!

Maybe someone can help me? I installed the latest Version 2.0.6 under the subsonic web-app folder. I can open the the player now with /minisub.
But when I entered my credentials, no artists, folders or such things will be loaded.

I enabled the debugging and logged the webconsole of the latest Firefox (15.0.1)
Code: Select all
[15:25:36.216] TAG LIBRARY
[15:25:36.217] LOAD ARTISTS
[15:25:46.236] ERROR!

When I call the URL by hand I am getting all artists like this
Code: Select all
"subsonic-response": {
"status": "ok",
"indexes": {
  "index": [ ...

Also I have to write the server with the port, like - I'm using apache as a proxy. So if I don't write :4040 I get these errors:
Code: Select all
[15:33:10.883] GET [HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found 0ms]
[15:33:10.902] GET [HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found 0ms]

Same problems, when I'm installing it outside of subsonic on a regular webserver.

Any help?

I just updated my Subsonic installation to the latest 4.7 and it appears that MiniSub comes prepackaged with it. When I click on the appropriate link to go to the MiniSub app of my server, I do get redirected to the correct interface. However, after entering my credentials all I am greeted with is an empty MiniSub - No artists, no tracks (see attached screenshot). How to fix this?

I have the exact same issue as kayvee - no solution yet (using both the chrome app and the native, pre-installed webapp).

With Subsonic v4.7 installed (Mac OS X version), I'm still seeing problems with the duration information for non-mp3 files (AAC, ALAC) not being displayed:

The player does not appear to be receiving duration information from the server when the transcoder is running:

I've tried resetting the server transcoder parameters to the defaults, deleting miniSub player instances on the server to force the updated transcoder settings be used, and clearing the browser cache on the local machine (MiniSub Chrome app v2.0.6, on Chrome 21.0.1180.89 for Windows), but the problem persists. Any ideas?

Was also getting the blank screen until I added a / at the end of the url after the port number then all seemed to work fine.
