RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-02-08

While testing the A/V codec data changes I found some things which can be improved. This will resolve some gltiches and potentially wrong displayed A/V codec data.

For a later release I started to look into showing picture / EXIF data in the overlay while running a slideshow: https://abload.de/img/bildschirmfoto2023-02ibecz.png.

Hi Buschel,

Any chance you can enable the sweet list view type that is currently only available for movies after tapping the “Added Movies” button? My vision would be to add it as a third view type instead of having just plain list and grids for movies and even TV shows?


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-02-10

Not really simple. This mode (which also is present for Videos) doesn't really look nice when enabling it for other areas. Ii is currently implemented as either normal grid or "sweet" grid. Adding a third option will be (most likely a lot) more work. I need to play around with this before I can take a call.

Just replacing normal grid for albums: https://abload.de/img/simulatorscreenshot-ib8dks.png

I can see why it wouldn’t look good for music but having it for even just movies in general would be nice.

For Music Videos this looks pretty decent. It is just more work than it looks like, even enabling it for movies as a third option.

I always forget about music videos. That does look great there!

1.12.1 build 3748
Release Notes

This new TestFlight build has been sent for review to AppStore as preparation towards the 1.12.1 bugfix release. It will show up on TF soon.

The changes are related to the recent reported issues with connection status icons on iPhone, loss of TCP connection when entering iOS App Switcher or Notification Center and around the A/V codec info of the NowPlaying overlay. Details can be found above in the link to the Release Notes.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2023-02-13

All issues I reported seem to be resolved with this TF release!

One incident I had was I had to switch the IP address of my Xbox Kodi server and when I did that in the app all my custom buttons were wiped out. A little annoying and not something I really want to test as it’s a pain in the neck to re-add them all.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-02-13

Thanks for verifying.

I currently cannot check in the sources, but the custom buttons will most likely be connected to a unique ID which is derived from server name and IP. If you change the IP, this connection is gone. This avoid problems with multiple servers of the same name.

It was the better route though. You’ll always be chasing your tail with new aspect ratios being introduced all the time.

Looks good!

Was no longer informed by the forum about new posts, so I missed the last updates. But I can tell you that I really like the current implementation, which works flawlessly for me. @Buschel, I appreciate your idea to show photo details from EXIF data on the Now Playing screen.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - amasephy - 2023-02-21

Hi Buschel,

I finally am able to point something out about a topic we talked about awhile back.

An issue with the NowPlaying playlist screen is that when you use the remote to start playback on the Kodi server the playlist entry has mostly missing info, no image or title but does have duration.

At the time you said it wasn’t possible to have the information displayed unless you use the app to initiate playback directly - using the movie section and playing a movie back for example. Not using the remote pane.

However I don’t know if that is necessarily true. This problem only manifests during movie playback. TV shows have no problem listing their title and even their episode screenshot in the now playing playlist screen by imitating playback the same exact way that fails with movies - ie: using the remote pane.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-02-21

Could be the case. The error for movies was told to lie within the playback engine of Kodi. So this might behave different for different items. I don‘t think this is anything we see fixed quick or at all.


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-02-23

Version 1.12.1 is released on AppStore. Thanks to all supporters!


RE: Testflight access to beta version - UlfSchmidt - 2023-03-03

Hello @Buschel
just got this aspect ratio displayed:
Image
How to interpret this? 1.37:1?
Any chance to improve this?


RE: Testflight access to beta version - Buschel - 2023-03-03

@UlfSchmidt: Yes, this means "1.37:1". I just did not change this against the former image-based solution which also showed "1.37". This can be easily changed, just needs some checks for the font size. It should not overlap with the arrows.
