Subsonic Radio Player for Windows and Android app updates

Post by acp » Feb Wed 06, 2013 2:28 pm

Just a quickie.. I've just uploaded new versions of both the Windows and Android Subsonic Radio Player applications. They're both minor updates to reflect recent changes on the server they fetch the stream list from. The windows version also now has a "Refresh stream list" option in the bottom left hand corner of the window, which will refresh the stream list without having to quit and re-load the application.

You can get them in the following places:

Subsonic Radio Player for Windows Version 1.8: Click here
(Apologies if you had problems downloading this earlier - there was a slight problem between the keyboard and chair in our trained coding monkey department. This has now been fixed and the download link now works. No monkeys were harmed during the making of this update.)


UPDATE 7/2/13: Subsonic Radio Payer for Windows Version 1.8.5 is now available,which fixes a muting bug reported by PlanningFallacy. You can download version 1.8.5 here.

Subsonic Radio Player for Android Version 1.6 has been submitted and will be available on Google Play within the next few hours. It'll show up in your Google Play updates page when it's propagated.

Enjoy, and as always let me know if you find any brokenness.

Hey Andy,

Thanks for all of your work in keeping these apps up.

Ran into a bug, which may be how you intended it to work but for the user it is weird.

The issue involves the functionality of the mute button in the Windows version.

Currently it apears that the mute button is doing something like:

Code: Select all

void onMutePressed()
{
	if(isMuted)
	{
		currentVolume = savedVolume;
		isMuted = false;
	}
	else
	{
			isMuted = true;
			savedVolume = currentVolume;
			currentVolume = 0;
	}
}
The issue with this is that if the user pressed the mute button, than uses the slider to raise the volume back up the button will not mute again on the next press. It could instead even raise the volume.

Something like this might be better:

Code: Select all

void onMutePressed()
{
	if(currentVolume == 0)
	{
		if(savedVolume)
		{
			currentVolume = savedVolume;
		}
		else
		{
			currentVolume = preSetVolume;
		}
	}
	else
	{
		savedVolume = currentVolume;
		currentVolume = 0;
	}
}
Again thanks,
-PlanningFallacy

I got the APP last month and I LOVE IT! Now I get Subsonic Radio 24/7! Does it get any better than this??

I have been enjoying the Andriod app for some time now and recently I have upgraded my phone with Andriod 4.1 and now every time I attempt to use the app it tell me "Sorry, couldnt open stream". I can access it in wifi mode but not on the go. I chalked it up as my phone but now I have attempt with other phones with 4.1 and the same thing occurs. Older OSs are able to access it at the same location. Am I doing something wrong? Appreciate any help you can give. Thank you for everything you do.

I have the S3 and I don't have trouble (it has 4.1). I notice it can take a couple seconds to connect to the stream, but it will connect. Maybe the error you are getting is because the stream is either momentarily down or it is full (no more open slots to connect to). If you can try it real early in the morning EST or late at night EST there should be plenty of open slots just to verify that is not the problem. I know you said other phones are fine, and full streams might not be the problem, but there are a few times when I need to reconnect while on my PC and in the short time it takes to relaunch the stream my slot will fill and it will tell me it can't connect.

Hrm. If it's working over wifi, but not over the mobile network, it could be that your network isn't allowing you to access the streams (they use a different port to usual web traffic).

I don't know an awful lot about the inner workings of mobile networks, but that'd be my best guess. There's nothing in the app to differentiate between different types of connection (wifi or mobile data), so if it works on one but not the other, I'd be inclined to look at the connection rather than the app - in this case, the mobile network.

On the subject of streaming over the mobile network, by the way, remember that streaming audio will use a lot of your data allowance. Depending on what kind of data allowance you get with your mobile provider, you might want to keep an eye on your usage if you're using the SSR app when not on wifi.

It is so awesome that you made an android player. I use it all the time. I don't know how difficult the programming is or how much time it all takes, but if you find yourself playing with the code sometime the next best feature would be a playlist showing what is currently playing. Again thanks for all your time.

I've been having issues with the app recently also. I figured the issues I had this weekend were because the streams were down. I thought I'd test it out while at the office today. To preface, I am using an HTC One running 4.1.2, and a Nexus 10 running 4.2.2 on my office wifi right now. On both devices I seem to have issues connecting to Requsts 96k and Requests 48k. Half the time I get "Sorry could not connect to stream" and half the time it connects after a long delay. I have not been able to connect to the Yesterland stream in over a month. I have tried using the apps both on wifi and over the mobile network with my phone. On the few times I take music with my while I run I would like to be able to listen to Subsonic. For some reason it's very motivating :).
Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your day here at Walt Disney World.

I've been having a lot of issues lately with the android app on my nexus 10 (4.2.2) and galaxy nexus (4.2.2). The app will just stop playing for no apparent reason. I thought at first it might be loss of 4G LTE data on the phone, but the S3 I had didn't have the problem. Also, I've been connected via WiFi on the nexus 10 and it just stops. I have to connect again and it plays for another while then stops again.
