Upgrading from 5.x to 6.x

It's been a while since I've been on this forum... was wondering if a tool was ever released to allow an upgrade from 5.x to 6.x. Or if there's a manual way to do this without losing userbase.

Thanks in advance!

Re: What is the best way to convert iTuns m4v to avi?

Handbrake is the best one I've used. Although I convert from other formats to MP4.

Re: Folder location in other server is posible?

you can't use FTP to share a file path. FTP is for downloading files, not streaming.

You would need to first mount the FTP location to a point on your linux server by editing your /etc/fstab file, then use the mount location to point Madsonic to your files.

Re: Madsonic Ads question

So if I create a series of ad files to be played after every 5 or 10 songs, the server will force the phone app (client) to play the ads, even if the songs are cached locally within the app?

Madsonic Ads question

If I set up ads on my server, I can enter a number between 0 and 1 to indicate how often ads are played. the higher the number, the more ads play (less songs between ads). My question is since mobile devices "cache" songs (depending on user settings, but at least 1 song is cached at all times), woul...

Re: 5.x to 6.x db converstion tool

Madevil - any progress on this? Would really like to make my main server a 6.x server instead of sticking with 5.x.

Thanks!

Re: Folder location in other server is posible?

Is your Madsonic server Windows or Linux? And what is the other server running? The process is different for different combinations. I have 2 Madsonic servers (5.x and 6.x). 6.x on Windows is a little different process to access the media on my Linux server (Which is running Madsonic 5.x). If both s...

6.1 8600 won't play on Firefox

Just updated to 8600 (6.1 beta) attempting to fix this issue in 8550 (previous version I was running). Seems that when I add a song to the playlist (from empty), and try to play it, the play button turns into two arrows circling around inside the play button. It never changes to the pause button, an...

Re: 6.1 8150(also 8220) madsonic-agent never turn to green.

To verify it's a db issue, you will need to completely uninstall Madsonic, then manually remove (or at least rename) your C:\Madsonic folder, reboot, and then reinstall from scratch. You'll lose info like usernames, and anything else stored in the db, but it should work. I had to do this when I upgr...

For the NAS issue, have you tried mapping a drive to your Windows PC? (ie, make M: your music drive mapped to \\NAS\Share\Music ) and then enter the M:\ path as your media folders?

Played "x" times

Just listened to a single full album on my 6.1 server and noticed that for each song played, the count goes up for the number of times the entire album was played. So for 12 songs on a single album, my play count is now "12".

Album play count should be separate from song play count.

Re: 6.1 8150(also 8220) madsonic-agent never turn to green.

You can keep the folder structure the same, but only use one folder share to the parent folder. For example, use: \\nas\share\Music instead of \\nas\share\Music\A, \\nas\share\Music\B, etc.... Then make sure that your NAS permissions for the "share" folder are set to allow the name you are setting t...

You will need to make sure the account you use for the login has proper (read/write) permissions to your NAS share.

Just started using the new lyrics buttons in 6.1.8150, and I still receive either "no lyrics found" or lyrics for the wrong artist and/or song for 90% of the time. I do not have lyrics embedded into the mp3 files themselves. Haven't looked at any code yet, but maybe it's something as simple as makin...

Re: 6.1 8150 madsonic-agent never turn to green. :(

Try going to your Madsonic server's website, and see if you just get a 404 (page not found) or something else like a database error. I had the database error, so I had to delete the Madsonic folder from C:\ and reinstall it. If you try reinstalling Madsonic without deleting this folder, you won't lo...

Just realized on my 6.1 install, I no longer have a "Statistics" button on the left. I checked to ensure the icon is enabled under settings, but do not see it. I can manually view statistics if I replace "index.view" with "statistics.view" in the address bar. Have tried logging out and back in (as b...

Not sure if this is a bug or just a configuration error/issue, or if it's due to the type of video being played, but I am not able to skip ahead when watching videos. The video in question is an MP4 file, and it's being played via "Flash". Running the 6.1 beta version. I thought MP4 files could be s...
