Hi Madsonic Community!


Well i'm back again, after some weeks long busy at work. :roll:

I'll look through the support forum and hopefully can clarify many things.
but I have also good news which have occurred more in the background.

Looking forward to more client APIs! Have you had time to document what public APIs you have added so far?

You may already have these listed under "many more", but I would like to see:

[*]Lyrics feature needs to be improved, as it fails to identify the correct song many times.
[*]20-second countdown timer for lyrics search (or eliminate the wait requirement)
[*]Integrated registration engine (with facebook and/or google + )
[*]The ability to "sync" playlists between "players" used by the same person (ie. if I am listening on my computer, have the ability to continue on my mobile device where the PC playlist was stopped/paused.)
[*]Ability to stay logged in "forever", and not automatically logout after a day or so.

Great to read you're working on 5.1 :)

If you need some beta testers, I'm glad to help you!

On the roadmap, If you could do someting for playlists it would be great... as written in your thread:

Hi

I know a feature I miss, being able to choose between movies and music in a clear way
found in eg plex media server.

for example, one could choose to have two clear buttons which the user can choose between music or movie and series, or why not that one can choose from music, film, comics, just for kids movies, etc. admin would able to mark the folders to which they belong.

I also see a feature where you can choose which folders users can download, for example, I want my users to be able download their music playlists to ther mobiles, but I do not want them to be able to download movies.

function of selecting music or movies, nearly already exists but is unclear for an untrained user when he must select the folder itself in a drop-down window.

sincerely / Chali
