Re: Lockscreen Music Controls

Under "Announcements" there will be a new 5.6 version of the Android client coming soon.

I just checked my app, since I got a new phone after my S3 died (now have an S5), and I have Pause/Play, Fwd, Rew controls on the lock screen. Running the 5.5 client.

Re: AT&T vs. T-Mobile: Who will win?

Personally, I think AT&T will win. I've had them for years (switched from T-Mobile), and they've always given me superior customer service. I just switched to their new "Mobile Data Share" plan, and I'm saving over $50 per month for 5 lines. Unlimited talk and text, 10gb shared data. My family uses ...

Re: Centos 7.0 released

Good to know! I'm still waiting for a process to do an upgrade from 6.5 to 7 without having to backup/format/install/restore. RHEL has a process from what I'm hearing, but nothing for Centos yet.

Centos 7.0 released

I'm in the process of updating my Madsonic server OS to Centos 7.0 (from 6.5), running 3860 Madsonic (5.0). I'll post back here if I have any problems, and if so, what they are. Never had a problem on 6.5 Centos, so I doubt I'll have any issues here.

You may need to begin playing one song, then turn on Pandora mode.

Re: Lockscreen Music Controls

I'm having the same issue. Samsung S3, running 4.3 (rooted). Haven't figured out why it's not working every time though. Are you listening through headphones (wired), or bluetooth (wireless)? I need to get a pair of BT headphones, but I do listen occasionally on a wired headset, with mic control. I ...

There's already "Pandora Mode", which does the same thing (although I'm not sure how the similar songs are picked.)

Re: company blocking ports?

That was my plan, until I remembered that my ISP blocks port 80 (and 25). Haven't tested 443 yet, but I'm not sure about certificates, so I think I'm going to stick with what I have now, which is the iSub app on ipad, and Madsonic on Android. I can connect to the company's "guest" wifi with no block...

Re: company blocking ports?

Trying this again.... I was able to get to the demo.madsonic.org site with no problems (other than not being able to login), so I'm not sure the issue is with port 4040 itself. I'm using no-ip.com as amy redirector, but I also tried my xxxxxxxxxx.subsonic.org address, which didn't work either. I've ...

Re: Bluetooth metadata incorrect

This is most likely because the Madsonic app will show you the song that is currently CACHING, not the song that is currently PLAYING.

The only time Madsonic shows the correct song is when you are listening on a PC.

Re: company blocking ports?

Well, I found a workaround....

Download bluetooth drivers from the laptop manufacturer's website and install them (Win7 wouldn't auto-install them as there is a policy in place to never install driver updates...)

Then I connect my phone to the laptop via bluetooth, and stream my music that way...

It's on the web page as you are listening to a song. Will appear along with the song title and who's listening to the song on the right side of the window.

company blocking ports?

I just started a new job, and of course, I want to be able to listen to music while I'm working, so I bring up my browser at work and try to go to my Madsonic site. I have tried IE and Firefox, but cannot get to my site from either browser. I can get to my site using the Madsonic app on my phone, so...

Re: Lyrics

It's something we've been requesting for a while. The only way I know of (so far) is to click the "Lyrics" link under the song title on the right-hand pane. But in my experience, this doesn't work all the time - it will either pull up no lyrics, or the wrong lyrics. I believe MadEvil was working on ...

Re: Replacement for dyndns

x2 on the no-ip.com - that's what I'm using. I do pay like $12.95 for 2 years of extra domain names, as I use more than just the 3 they let you use for free, and I use some of the "non-free" domain names they have available.

Re: Error when opening specific artist

A couple other things to try:

Rename the folder, create a new folder with the name of the "old" folder, then move all your media/subfolders from the renamed folder to the new one. Delete the "old" folder.

After doing the above steps, run a full rescan on your media library.

Then test.

I'm actually in the same boat - looking for a new job. It sucks, because it takes up a LOT of your time, sending resumes out, customizing them for whatever job you are applying to, then (hopefully) scheduling interviews, finding out some jobs only pay "entry level" compensation, repeating the proces...

Re: Remove Login + CDN Support

I wouldn't recommend disabling the login screen. Users will tend to create their own "personal" playlists based on the music you are sharing, and not logging in (or having everyone sign in with a single ID and password) would negate this process. This is just one example though. If you do want to op...
