Beta 5.1 and Video

Post by cykelsmeden » Thu Dec 03, 2009 1:38 pm

I've just got my licensekey, after testing v.5.068. As my sole reason is sharing to my new Bravia 40w5500, and esp. my wife was a bit annoyed about the "double-confect" selecting either photos, video or music, and given that and the stated test supporting on w7, I took on the chance to get v 5.1 which I now learn is Beta.
However I now find that when selecting the "Video-mode", I'm in fact instead offered a subset of my pictures selection, which I´m not able to open, obviously because I'm in "Videomode"

On the server managementconsole, the videos shows up quite as expected.
Have I missed some point, or do the beta still have an issue on this? Do I have to downgrade?

yours

Well, now I downgraded to final rel. v 5.068 again,and I'm totally lost:
I can't start the server anymore. That is, it starts, but less tha 10 secs. it stops again.

Anyone have any Idea?

I've now reinstalled 5.1, and again the server works, but still no video. Still, when entering the video-tab, I'm offered a subset of my pictures. The maintenance-tab on the webserver, counts both music, pictures and video correctly however, and on the server I can see all my videos. Seem lik a bug in the 5.1 beta!!

Please discuss Betas in the beta forum.

5.1.1 is the latest release, you should try that out, it fixes performance problems with 5.0 and addresses some bugs from 5.1. It's the best release so far, with all the benefits of 5.x and the performance of 4.x too.

In addition to upgrading, you might want to reset your clients table, and ensure your hardware is identified correctly when it connects.

Thank you for your answer

P´se excuse, not being in Betaline, but, as I tried to further express in second letter, My sole concern was, not being able to make the released .068 version run for more than fes secs, after the not working beta has been installed.
Do I understand correctly that the link under "Windows (XP, Vista, Win7) Setup" constantly point to the newest build, rather tha a certain build?
- because, that was the link I got the unworking release from in the first place. I'll try to download it again and compare functionality.

And p'se forgive my ignorance: How do you reset the clients table?

Greetings

Former: Beta 5.1 and Video now: 5.1.1 dated nov-2009 - no v

Well backwards/forward anyway moves :)
I'm now directed back here as the 5.1.1 is finally released, but I still have no video ;(

to sum up, this is what I submitted to the betaforum:
--
I'm in really trouble, so pse help.
I used the 5.068 and was satisfied enough to order a license. In that effort, I discovered subj. which supposed to solve the issue of selecting which media twice (and it really does) + it was supposed to run on W7 (which it does), and because of that, installed it.
However, when on a client (Bravia 40w5500) selecting video, I´m instead only offered a subset of my picturefiles.
On the W7 pc-server however it works just fine.
Downgrading back to v 5.068, however the server only runs for few secs.
So now, Im not able to serve videofiles in either 5.068 or 5.1.1 (photo and music runs fine in 5.1.1).
