  1. You can use JRiver's WDM Driver to capture any sound from any program. It acts as a Window audio driver. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/WDM_Driver
  2. It's more than serious competition, I think. MQA isn't used, according to the report in The Verge: https://www.theverge.com/2019/9/17/20869526/amazon-music-hd-lossless-flac-tier-spotify-apple
  3. Please let MQA die. It was a bad idea then. It's still a bad idea. Great minds, like those posting here, deserve better topics to discuss. and, not to be anonymous... Jim Hillegass, JRiver, Team Manager
  4. Jud, You're thinking of our new Cloudplay streaming. You're correct that this is limited to playlists because of licensing. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Cloudplay Shawnc is talking about using JRiver Media Center's Library Server to serve your local files. You can then connect to it from a phone or another copy of MC. You can use the client to control MC or as a remote player, from your LAN or the Internet. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Media_Network Most JRiver remotes support this. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Remotes
  5. The latest version of JRiver supports lyrics: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=119674.0 Thanks for the kind words.
  6. On Android, Cloudplay can be used in Panel, to play on the server Panel is connected to. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Panel in JRiver for Android, to play locally on the phone. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,118031.msg816593.html#msg816593 and on the Play Store.
  7. You can right click on the title bar of any view and add any field. Our wiki has a topic on classical music, with links to discussion on the forum.
  8. We should hit 100,000 files in the next month or so. 316 users 1346 playlists 87719 tracks You can now search for an artist and Play Doctor will build a playlist of that artist and other similar artists. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,121674.0.html
  9. JRiver has done a lot of work over the years to try to satisfy classical audio tagging needs. Here's a ten year old thread that has a lot of information you might find useful: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=45824.0 Composer and Work tags have been available for many years. One problem in this area is that there are no agreed standards on how to tag, so everyone does it a little differently.
  10. I apologize if I am repeating anything said above, but here's what I know about HDCD. The wikipedia article is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Definition_Compatible_Digital From that article: "HDCD encodes the equivalent of 20 bits worth of data in a 16-bit digital audio signal by using custom dithering, audio filters, and some reversible amplitude and gain encoding: Peak Extend, which is a reversible soft limiter; and Low Level Range Extend, which is a reversible gain on low-level signals. " So the discs are compatible with both hardware players that support HDCD and those that don't. When you rip a CD to FLAC, for example, the HDCD decoding information is included in the rip. There's no special rip required. Not all HDCD discs are labeled as such, so you may already have discs that are HDCD. With JRiver Media Center, you must re-analyze the lossless audio tracks in order for MC to know which discs were HDCD. Here's the current topic on our forum: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,121124.0.html
  11. Thanks. It's amazing that it runs on a board with just 512MB of RAM.  Yes. It's really MC. Only the GUI is removed. Possibly. We haven't implemented the remote control that would be needed, though you could probably use VNC. This particular hardware doesn't support that, but it's doable in the future. The card is an 810 and I can't speak for StreamUnlimited on what they plan to do with it. We think there are other hardware opportunities since it runs on such minimal equipment now.
  12. Sure. It's a GUI-less version of MC, intended to be used as a server or renderer on ARM hardware. We ship it with an SSDP app for Android that makes finding it on your network easy. Then you connect to it with a browser. It runs a server that lets you load the webapp that allows configuration. I know it's kind of an obscure concept, but it's a nice headless solution. What else am I missing?
  13. Gizmo or JRemote? We're working on the Android version of JRemote now. Panel is an easy to use interface that runs in any web browser. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Panel You could try it now if you have MC installed. Type localhost:52199 in your web browser on any machine where MC is running.
  14. Audiophiles are people who love music. The rest you describe can generate a lot of noise.
