JRiver Media Media Center 25 would like to record this computer's screen?

Hi @jriver, any idea why macOS Catalina pops up this message when I launch Media Center 25?

 

Media Center 25 would like to record this computer's screen.

Grant access to this application in Security & Privacy preferences, located in System Preferences.

It definitely is more security, but the only other app that has asked this exact question is Quicktime when I purposely created a screen recording.

Heh..it seems even the audiophile software vendors are now jumping on the Big Brother bandwagon. There's probably some shady deal in place to sell off your "anonymized" listening/viewing preferences to 5th parties in JR25.

 

Its "almost" as bad as my Google Pixel phone harassing me every few hours that it needs access to the Microphone/Camera & Body Sensors in order to allow me to use the phone to dial a number 🙄

Probably.  I've been using v25 since its release and never had such a message..............................from Win10.

I think it is just a question asked because jriver do many things apart music... images, movies, streaming, tv... i would have answered NO if it was asked to me 😀

That's a Mac thing, nothing we've changed.  I have no idea why they think we're recording the screen.  Our drawing is all our own, so that may confuse them.

 

Catalina has some new requirements.  We'll have a newer build in a week or two that should be less trouble.

 

Apple is requiring some new "notarization" of programs.  I'm traveling, so I haven't had a chance to find out more.

Your speculation isn't helpful.  There are no deals.  We'd ask you if we wanted to collect any data.
