Re: Can't get back to main screen while playing Youtube

Thanks. then perhaps 'full screen' should be just slightly smaller that full screen so these buttons are always accessible. I'm sure you've considered this but I would be happy giving up full screen if it was the only way I could get reliable access to the main interface.

Re: Can't get back to main screen while playing Youtube

Similar behaviour with 2243 but I see what you are referring to. As I move the mouse to the top banner, the album cover image shrinks revealing the two small screen icons in the upper right hand corner. However, they are covered over after about 3 seconds as the album cover goes back to full screen ...

Re: Can't get back to main screen while playing Youtube

v. 2229. I'll try again with the latest version. The best way to illustrate it is with a video where I hover over different parts of the screen. It's here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/iv9koilqs163m ... 9.mov?dl=0

A plea for simplicity in the MM5 interface

I've been trying to use MM5 preferentially to MM4 but I'm always migrating back. For me the main advantage of MM5 is the ability to cast to Chromecast devices, which allows me to use MM5 to control my analog high-end stereo via the Chromecast audio device. However, I think MM5 is simply too complex ...

Can't get back to main screen while playing Youtube [#16557]

While playing this Youtube music video (see this MM5 screenshot) https://bit.ly/35aGY0X, I tried to get back to the main interface. No matter where I clicked I could not get back to the main interface screen. It seems to me that MM5 should act like MM4 and not devote the entire window to artistic di...

Re: Removing inter-track gaps

I"m having the same issue on MM5 (I presume the playback issue is the same for 4 and 5?). I would like to be able to listen to tracks with no gaps beyond the usual 2 sec delay between tracks on an LP or a CD. I would like to hear Abbey Road side 2 with no gaps. Here are the Mediamonkey DirectSound o...

Re: MM5 debug send logs crashes

I'm now using MM5 v. 2219. This issue is still happening. MM5 has trouble playing to Chromecast (which works most of the time) then offers to send a debug file. I click "Yes" but then parts of the interface stay frozen on top of other applications and nothing happens. Eventually, I have to kill MM5 ...

Re: Volume control slider is too small in MM5

Very helpful advice. The hotkeys now seem to be working; it took a few tries and restarts. Sometimes the response was sluggish compared to using the slider. re: L & R arrow keys with slider I had noticed this as well but what I found is that not only did the volume go up & down but the the cursor si...

Re: Volume control slider is too small in MM5

btw, this is not a low-resolution issue. My resolution is 3000x2000 (MS Surfacebook), which is probably why the slider is so small. Fair enough; I wouldn't expect you to guide me in this type of editing. However, could you please point me to an online resource about how to edit these elements? All I...

Re: Volume control slider is too small in MM5

Yes that is a very nice feature. However, I've never edited HTML code. I opened the element, found "SeekBarbefore" and tried to change the width (should that be length?) from 20 to 60px. That did work but it shoved it towards the right and on top of the border. I guess this means that one would have...

MM5 debug send logs crashes [#15896]

I tried to send logs capturing the state of MM5 when it lost contact with my chromecast. However, it crashed.

Volume control slider is too small in MM5

I find the volume slider in MM5 to be too small to be effective. Here's a screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tyazpcpgbr4l8u1/2019-11-17%20090225%20mm5%20volume%20slider%20too%20small.png?dl=0 It is only about 5mm long on my 13" screen. This contrasts with the 'now playing' slider to the left, whi...

Global search and replace on metadata fields

Is there any way to do a global search and append on the 'genre' field? I'd like to append ";lossless" to whatever is in the genre field so that I'm able to filter for my flac files using an android app (Squeeze Controller) that routes my Logitech Media Server files to my living room speaker. I don'...

Just wanted to confirm that I also found sqlite spy the easiest to use. I couldn't get sqlite manager to work.
