They do not show up until i change the videoset to album (directory might work) using the sql database. I looked all over for an...

AudioBook m4p files - madsonic unable to determine duration

I recently started collecting audiobooks and most that you download are in a series of mp3's. In order to use in other situations, I need to convert them to standard audiobook files with an extension of m4b. I am using a program called chapter and verse to convert the mp3 to m4A and then it takes th...

Re: de- & reactivation Madsonic services

My question is have you resolved the MSDN/Azure subscription issue. Seems to me that without a development toolset you can't really work on the product. Maybe you need a fundraiser and give those who donate a free subscription for 1,3,5 years dependending on donation. I am assuming you still plan on...

Re: Madsonic Development

although madevil visits the forum often (from what I see in his profile), he hasn't posted anything in over 2 months. I am guessing he was not happy with the discussions that went on after the monthly fee was announced and people said probably not willing to pay. It's been 3 months since the first b...

Re: Madsonic Newsletter 01/2015

so 5.1 is the last release before the new monthly fee come into effect? I am still on 5.0 because I had to back out 5.1. If there will be no additional releases that are free, i will have to work on getting 5.1 to work.

Re: Madsonic 6.0 Beta1

i have mixed feelings. I want to support the new business, but I don't see anything in version 6 screenshots that impresses me that much to pay a monthly fee. The interface is the same look and feel. If i were to pay a monthly fee i would expect live lyrics, support for subs, tablet app with touch c...

Re: Can I use a Subsonic license in Madsonic?

If madsonic does require a new license, i will have no problem purchasing it. There have been so many improvements and Mad is so much more responsive than Sindre? ever was. I don't even bother looking at subsonic website anymore.

Re: share file not found error

I have had that also. I switched to the other network card on my PC and they seem to have gone away so I am guessing it was dropping the connection. I usually fixed it by disabling/enabling the connection and then I had to sign back into the NAS.

Re: scan issue

maybe I missed it, but did you remove all drives from madsonic and do a scan? Nothing should show up. Now add back the movies and scan. then add back the others, I usually did it one at a time. I have had to do that a couple times. Hope it helps.

Re: network share

I am running windows and have no issue accessing shared drives on a NAS. Here is one of my media folders in madsonic: \\DISKSTATION\Media Files\Music I had to set up an account on madsonic and the same account on the NAS.

Re: Statistics, can we get video information?

The latest beta does have more stats for video. Is there any chance we could get stats on files in a specific library? The video stat now is nice but it includes all the TV episodes where I really care about number of movie files. If you could add for each library we have defined and then give total...

Re: Android Client 5.0 Sneak Peek

well I bought it and then returned it and re-bought it. I must have hit the return button instead of open. Works good, thanks. I have no problem buying apps like this. I would have no problem paying a small fee for the server either. You do a great job. thanks again.

Re: Android Client 5.0 Sneak Peek

How can I do this? I will pay the $50.00 to do it. I have a server with over 20 users. I figure $50.00 is sufficient. How do I locate the apk after purchasing? It is as easy as plugging your phone/tablet into your computer and using file explorer to find *apk* files. You may have to change your pho...
