All is well so far no bugs to report however the same issue I've always had still occurs occasionally. If I'm downloading a big media file like a 120MB mp3. Sometimes it will continuously loop when downloading it. Normally playing it while downloading prevents it. But when pinning it to download it occurs pretty commonly. I've had this issue as far back as I can remember. Any idea?

For what its worth, the issue nh5 is reporting sounds like the same one I reported in the Bugs forum. Where pinned files (often transcoded FLAC) repeat download, I have also noticed that these same files cut off the last second of audio when streaming live.. This does not however happen in the web based player. I do have a song or two that this behavior is repeatable on if you would like me to send a file to you on PM.

Bug with Android 4.4 nexus 4 -
Clicking the Search icon on the bottom causes the app to crash. Bug report from app has been sent.

Also, where should we post bugs to? This Forum or the Google Groups list?

As always the new changes are looking really good.

Hi there, i have tested with Android 4.4, but i will recheck your report.

it would be better post beta problems in the google group list,
and problems with released versions in the forum.

Bug with version 5.6 on Moto G Android 4.4.4
when turning on the Song Shuffle (now called pandora mode) it says "Pandora Mode On" but doesn't load any songs at all, when i press play nothing happens, worked fine in Madsonic 5.5, other then that it seems to work very nicely but i hope this can be fixed soon, as i love this feature of Madsonic!

edit: sometimes when i try to press play after enabling pandora mode it says "Pandora-Buffer 0"

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

Hi there,

It's not a bug, it's a feature ;)

Pandora on the Client works a little bit different as on the Webpage.

First, play some Music of your choice.

In the background, the song data will be collected and a buffer is created on the base of these. If the last but one song is reached,
new songs are loaded from the buffer. By moving the song to the last entry, you can pass through songs from the buffer.

I hope I haven't confused you more as before. ;)

best regards

this makes perfect sense, i suppose the confusing part was just that in version 5.5 it was the same icon for the plain old shuffle feature, is there any way we will get the old shuffle option back? i want to shuffle my entire library not just similar artists/songs as it did in version 5.5. either way thanks alot for the reply and clarifying that feature :)

Yes it's there. Go to the welcome (first) page. In the Top bar the first icon is the old shuffle mode. :D
