dkstott,

I retested https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=19800 (the randomization issue) and can no longer replicate the bug using the steps described. Are you able to?

Playcount calculations

- Detection of permission issues

See details here.

Let us know how it works for you.

fyi, Build 1159 is the current release on the Play store. We're in the process of submitting it to the Amazon App store.
Build 1160 was approved as a beta build on the Play store on Friday. It includes the following improvements:

- Wi-Fi Sync may not delete matched tracks (this is in cases where tracks are matched to the collection without having been synced or having been synced via a defunct sync profile).
- Switching between cast devices may fail
- Bluetooth metadata doesn't update on some devices
- Unpinning ratings doesn't persist
- BACK always returns to home (in landscape mode)
+ Several stability fixes

EDIT (1/31): Release 2.0.0.1160 has been released to Production on the Play store.

Does 2.x provide sorting albums by release year?

Build 1166 is available on the Play store as a beta (staged rollout). It includes quite a few improvements:

Fixed since the last release (1160):

Google casting:
- Playback issues when upcoming track is replaced
- Play count / history may fail to update
- Playback stops in some cases
Performance
- Playing queue
- Slow loading on some devices
Sync
- Button may not work
- Bi-di sync folder selection is misleading
UPnP download
- Fails for mass selection fails
- Doesn't display correct progress
- Status indicator may disappear
Navigation
- Missing cursor in search bar
- Blank screen when going BACK
Stability fix


Note: It doesn't include Sorting improvements--those are planned for a future released.

fyi, build 1166 wasn't released to Production due to a casting-related regression. Beta Build 1167 started rolling out earlier this week and includes the following fixes:

Casting
- fails for some IPs
- may not show length
Playlist: shows length of 0:00
More stability fixes

Let us know how it works for you--thanks!

We've just started rolling out build 1168 for beta testing. It includes the following changes:

Added
- Creation of shared folders for syncing
(previously MMA synced to private folders if no shared folder existed)
- Show count (x/y) in download status
- Time remaining in the playing queue

Fixed
- Casting fails to some devices
- Replaced defunct Simple Scrobbler with Pano Scrobbler
- More stability fixes

We're planning on introducing build 1169 beta next week to fix a stability regression in this build, but we'd much appreciate feedback re. casting to make sure that it's working correctly in all environments.

Thanks & have a great weekend!

fyi, we've begun rolling out the beta for build 1169. It includes the following fixes:

- Casting doesn't always start from the current position
- Tweaked time remaining in the playing queue
- More stability fixes (including to a regression introduced in 1168)

Unless any showstoppers crop up, we expect to release this build to Production after a brief beta period.

fyi we haven't released build 1169 as there are a couple of significant issues that were discovered and should now be fixed in build 1171 which is currently rolling out to Beta subscribers:
- Crash related to permissions for root folders
- Bookmarking doesn't work for UPnP casting

Please let us know how it works for you--thanks!

I just got v1171 [yesterday?]. I noticed that when I did my first wireless sync with MMA, it requested that I allow the creation of two folders - "Playlists" and "Video"? What's that all about?

Hi,
On Android 11+ if there is profile settings that you sync playlist and Videos to those folders (Default setting) and they do not exist it will prompt you to create them as if they are not created Mm will not be able to create synced playlist that can be shared played with other apps. Many users complained that MM synced playlists are not available outside MMA due the fact Playlist folder do not exist.

EDIT: on Some Devices to get most of device (due the custom hardware and drivers) they need to play playlists using their proprietary players (those custom hardware parts) as they take advantage of Custom parts not Available for Android OS and MMA (unless we get all the specs from manufacturers) that do not have specific hardware driver for them. There is some apps like viper4android fx that are specifically written to bridge the gap for native support to specific hardware support (I personally use it on my Car Head Unit) and improves sound by 10x no matter of player app used (MMA included).
