Same issue. Not sure how to purchase this license. I currently own a lifetime license for Subsonic but it doesn't work on Madsonic 6. How do I extend the trial?

Thanks for a great piece of software.

Hello @ All,

I'm running on the latest subsonic until now and would like to switch to madsonic.
But I'm owning a lifetime subscription for subsonic and would like to ask if it's possible to transfer the license to madsonic.

Best Regards
Elu

Have the same problem, recently got a subsonic premium lifetime license.
Unfortunately wasn't aware about the MADSONIC license model, because it had worked in the past.

Please Helps.

Same.

I was given a Madsonic Premium license key (and still have it.) Things have been going great until (12/30/16).

I now get the message:
The trial period expired on November 11, 2016. Get Madsonic Premium to use this feature. - when I try to play something.

I go to the premium page and enter my license key in and then it says:
You have a valid Madsonic Premium license!

The license is registered to [my email address].


Then we keep going in circles because the trial period message still comes up.

Thanks. Happy New Year.

For explanation: expired Madsonic License

Many Madsonic test licenses expired on 31.12.2016 and are no longer automatically extended.

Best regards,

I would also like to know this. I am always running the latest beta build on my server. Me and my several users only use Madsonic Android clients or the Web UI to play music.

The problem that I have with purchasing a Madsonic Premium subscription are as follows:

1.) I don't need the majority of the Premium features.

Your personal server address: yourname.madsonic.org - Don't use. I have my own Domain name/static IP.
Sonos support - Do not own or use Sonos
UPnP/DLNA support - Don't use. I only use Android mobile client and Madsonic Web GUI
ChromeCast support - I don't own Chromecast
LDAP authentication - Not using on a domain so I don't need LDAP as I don't have local users
advanced LDAP management * - I don't use LDAP
advanced Podcast features - ???? What are these?
audio conversation service - Not sure what this is
video conversation service - Not sure what this is
new chart / bestof feature *
Madsonic FollowMe /FollowYou * - I don't use the social aspect
universal tag-system / taste profiles *
new webservices (Musicbrainz, IMDB, ..) *
advanced service integration (Last.FM, Echonest) *
social logon support (Facebook, Google, own registration engine) * - I personsally won't use
advanced video support hls/dash streaming *
media reorganisation (checkIn system) *
new responsive mini-interface *
Dreambox Integration * - Do not own or use
HDRUN Integration * - Do not own or use

2.) I do not wish to pay a monthly subscription fee to access media I am hosting myself, especially when I don't need the "Personal server address feature" in Premium.

3.) I purchased the Madsonic Android client which no longer works due to license expiration on the server.

I would be happy to make a one time donation as I do believe you should be compensated for your work.

I would like to make the following suggestion:

Do not require a Madsonic Premium license for Mobile client access. There are plenty of other additional features in Premium that would be useful to many users, and worth the cost of Premium. If you still want to block access for mobile clients in the free version, what about adding a check in to allow access from the Madsonic Mobile client only (block other mobile clients in the free version, like UltraSonic, etc.).

I just do not like the fact that the Madsonic Android client is a paid app, but if you don't have premium Madsonic the app ceases to function. Again, thanks for all of your hard work on the project, but if staying beta/bleeding edge is not an option, I don't personally have a reason to stay with Madsonic, as I have a legacy Subsonic license, and a monthly Madsonic subscription just doesn't make sense for me.

FYI - since the trial period expired, I can't even play files locally. I understand taking away the "premium" features, but basic functionality seems broken now.

Do I need to change something?

Sure, the Early Adopter Program still exists http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/joinAdopter.jsp :)


@jsgates @zer0squared your concern shows me that there is need for explanation for the use of the REST API

only the Subsonic REST emulation is a Premium feature, the Madsonic REST 2.0 API is free!

Read more here: http://beta.madsonic.org/pages/api.jsp

REST API:

http://localhost:4040/rest/getApi.view or http://localhost:4040/rest2/getApi.view

EXAMPLE RESULT

Code: Select all

<madsonic-response xmlns="http://madsonic.org/restapi" status="ok">
<api>
<rest type="madsonic" version="2.5.0"/>
<rest type="subsonic" version="1.14.0"/>
</api>
</madsonic-response>
Test with expired Premium license:

SUBSONIC REST API:

http://localhost:4040/rest/ping.view?u= ... 0.0&c=rest

EXAMPLE RESULT

Code: Select all

<subsonic-response xmlns="http://subsonic.org/restapi" status="failed" version="1.14.0" type="subsonic">
<error code="60" message="The trial period for the Madsonic server is over. Please upgrade to Madsonic Premium. Visit http://www.madsonic.org for details."/>
</subsonic-response>
or MADSONIC REST API:

http://localhost:4040/rest2/ping.view?u ... 0.0&c=rest

EXAMPLE RESULT

Code: Select all

<madsonic-response xmlns="http://madsonic.org/restapi" status="ok" version="2.5.0" type="madsonic"/>
If clients have a complete Madsonic API 2.0 implementation the usage is free.

Check your serverlog for entries like this if any clients use this function:

Code: Select all

INFO SubsonicRESTRequestParameterProcessingFilter - REST emulator access for client '<USER>' has expired.

You're right. I don't even know what REST or API means, even after browsing that page of code. I'm not trying to re/write a program - I just want to use Madsonic (instead of Subsonic) to stream my media when I'm away from home. Is there something in the settings that we need to un/check to get it working again?

Thanks for the reply!
