Another thought of mine: why don’t you simply close the full screen now playing view automatically when nothing is playing. Wouldn’t this be quite natural?


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-14

Good idea. Let think about it and make a test.

Perfect, thanks for confirming.

Should be pretty obvious there’s a major discrepancy.
Are these different iOS versions? On my simulators (iPod 7G 15.5, iPhone 6s 15.5 and iPhone 14 Pro 172.) this looks same (the version with the smaller fonts).

Edit: The screenshots I took for 1.13 show the big font. Now they do not, even when building 1.13 with the former Xcode version.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2024-03-14

Yeah, the taller one is from my 15 on the latest iOS. The other one with larger fonts is from iOS 13 on iPhone 6s.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-15

The labels were in general too small for the desired font size. Looks like old iOS still rendered this and new iOS corrected it. Not sure where else in the App this happens. At least I can bring this back to the desired state.

RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2024-03-15

Looks much better.

Now for another bug. I swear this is new. Must be another iOS thing.

Your add host link to the Kodi wiki launches Safari zoomed in on the webpage way too much on my 15.

Ironically, on my 6s the webpage loads at the proper zoom level.

No such issue exists with the forum link.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-15

Just found another iOS version related issue: The scroll indicator is gone with iOS 17. No idea where this is coming from.

Edit: The issue with WiKi zoomed up too much I do not see on simulator or my iPhone 14 Pro (iOS 17.3.1)


RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2024-03-15

I’m seeing some extremely weird behavior.

What zoom level does the simulator show? This is access by pressing on the AA button. It should indicate the %.

By default it was using 85%. Double tapping on the screen zooms it to fit to screen. But this does not change the zoom %. Manually changing the zoom % to 50% fixes the problem but the screen is still offset.

I really don’t know what is going on.

Strangely for a split second when first loading the website is fine but then it zooms in.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-15

Shows 100% for me.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-15

@UlfSchmidt, instead of using a NowPlaying icon at the bottom I am thinking of an icon which represent going back to the desktop aka closing all open panels. This is what the functionally really is about. Some quick and dirty icon ideas I came up with Powerpoint:

https://ibb.co/NLVwydc

Looks like this:

https://ibb.co/L5S3JHP

Should I in this case then also remove NowPlaying from the main menu? Maybe even Remote? Both are available via the bottom toolbar, always.

Sorry for my often late replies, but I’m currently receiving forum notification mails only from time to time on an absolutely random basis.

I really like the icons from your first icon set much more than the second icon with the stars. From the icon set, my favorite would be the second, followed by the one you used in your mockup screenshot.

Removing these functions from the main menu makes absolutely sense for me. But, as the main menu is already customizable, I don’t mind if these options remain. I have the Remote entry already disabled since the very beginning.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-16

Thanks, will play around a bit more with the initial set of icons. The related code changes are quite simple, but they need the UI rework to be merged first. So, will come very soon I hope Smile

Edit: After a lot of playing around with icons I now ended up with keep using the NowPlaying icon. As adding this button is a small change I now added it on top the UI / NowPlaying rework. It will be going into the mainline in one go.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2024-03-17

I looked around the app on my 6s to check for any other font sizing issues and did not find anything obvious. Hopefully what you fixed is all that needed to be.

I see the scroll bar issue as well. Not sure if it’s related but you may want to check your fix in the settings menu as well. It’s missing there too.

When you do implement the new power menu and possibly move the library maintenance buttons, would it be possible to add new buttons to scrape album and artist info? This is actually well hidden on Kodi server. I had to look up how to do it this past weekend. It would be wonderful if the app made this functionality available in the same place that library cleaning is.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2024-03-17

Thanks for checking the font issue with you old iPhone.

The missing scrollbar impacts all lists which have a search function (pull down the list). This really is a bug go iOS17. I have found a workaround, but am not yet sure if this it is really a good way to resolve this.

I could not find any API for the the artist / album scrape.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - UlfSchmidt - 2024-03-17

Regarding the album and artist scrape: There are (at least on my iPad) two entries for the Audio and Video libraries: Update and Cleanup. Is this different on iPhones? Isn’t Update exactly doing what are you looking for? I always use this and never needed something else.

And, since scrapers are add-ons, any further functionality would depend on the scrapers installed on Kodi server and I fear this is also the reason that there aren’t any further API calls implemented.

Or am I missing something?
