MediaVault is an open source desktop application, for AmigaOS 4, which can be used to discover online radio stations. The selected radio station can be streamed using a player, i.e. AmigaAmp 3.

I would like explicitly to thank IconDesigner for the awesome icons he designed for MediaVault, and for giving me his permission to include them in the package. These are also included at the aos-iconsupdate7 package (http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=graphics/icon/aos-iconsupdate7.lha)

Of' course, the development does not stop here. I am already working for the next release, and with the new self update feature, this will be even easier for you to download and install it. So I am planning to start doing more frequent and smaller releases.

You can support MediaVault development by donating at https://ko-fi.com/walkero, where I will set every time a goal for a new feature or improvements, described the best way I can, which you can help to achieve. As soon as this goal is fulifilled I will start working on it, and create the next one and let you know about it.

With your donations, not only you support MediaVault development, but 50% of the monthly/goal money will be donated to an other project, and 5% are donated to the ko-fi platform.

MediaVault will remain free for everyone to use and open source.



This version brings the following changes:
- Added right sidebar with station info and avatar image, wherever
the image is available
- Added a new menu item to check for newer versions and start a
selfupdate, if the user approves it. There is a way to see the
latest changes before update.
- Added a play button at the right sidebar which is enabled as soon
as the user selects a radio station. By clicking it the radio will
be loaded at the default player. The double click on the radio
list was disabled.
- Now the radio list is cleared if the search criteria change and
no radio stations are found
- Now the list is not cleared if the "Discover More" button is
clicked and no more stations were found
- Fixed a possible crash on window closing
- Added a new message in case the "Discover More" button is clicked
and no more stations were found
- Dropped oo.library network support for libcurl. That's why the
executable size is increased so much
- Now oo.library and AmiSSL are not required
- Fixed the version string to include the application name
- On every request of radio stations, a list of 100 stations are
returned and listed

You can download it at OS4Depot (http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=network/misc/mediavault.lha) and from my Github at
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault/releases/tag/v1.3.0

The project is open source and you can find the code at:
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault

If you have any requests or you would like to report any problems you found, you can do it at:
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault/issues

Hope you will enjoy the new release.

Like this very much.
And also the open source way seems to be cool.

Thanks to all involved

@walkero

It seems there's something odd about the way the video in your initial post works here on AmigaWorld (I didn't see such problems on Amigans.net).

When Odyssey loads the page, it stalls halfway with the video showing mostly a coloured dots "noise" screen. Odyssey freezes and gives a DSI which when ignored leaves Odyssey dead in the water.

This is on an X1000 with a Radeon HD 6670 card.

(I had to start a Windows machine and Firefox to post this reply).

Anyone else see that?

Best regards,

Niels

@all
Thank you guys for your kind messages. Have fun with MediaVault

@nbache
Actually that is a big (~8MB) .gif file and not a video. Possibly the gif decoder crashed on Odyssey for some reason. I will check it as well.

I see.

Strange, GIF anims usually work fine in Odyssey. And as I wrote, it also worked fine at Amigans - I assume it's the same GIF you used. Could it be that this site injects something into it on upload or maybe embeds it in a different way?

Best regards,

Niels

Actually this image is linked by an external website, and was not uploaded at the amigaworld. So I doubt that something is injected to it.

MediaVault podcast support is one step closer.

I just managed to fill the list up with matching podcasts, based on the search term at the top. This means that I already managed to get the necessary data from PodcastIndex.org, parse them and show them in the list.

Next steps? A lot of work still to be done, like create a list of the podcast episodes, show podcast avatar at the right sidebar and make the selected episode to play with the audio player.

Interesting stuff ahead.

If you like what you see, and you want to help me succeed on my goal, you can support me at https://ko-fi.com/walkero

Looks promising!

BTW, side note: The freeze in Odyssey described in my posts above does not happen today - not sure if anything was changed on the server side, or in your AnimGIF, or it was just "one of those things".

Best regards,

Niels

The development of the next version of MediaVault is going well and I hope it will be released by the time AmiWest will happen. Today I finished a big part of the required work on Podcasts support.

You can have a look of that new feature in a preview video at https://ko-fi.com/post/MediaVault-1-4-0-preview-I3I66EAUZ

I would like once more to thank all these people who support me and help me get that goal done.

I just released MediaVault v1.4.0.

This version brings the following:
* You can now search for podcasts based on their title, see info and their avatar and a list of the latest 100 episodes
* By selecting an episode and clicking the play button the audio is loaded to the player and starts playing
* Changed the way the avatar images are downloaded, which is now faster and solves a lot of errors with network access, which resulted connection error messages to appear.

Find more info at https://ko-fi.com/post/MediaVault-1-4-0-released-F1F76GYRS

I would like to thank my supporters at https://ko-fi.com/walkero, who help me a lot on the further MediaVault development.

Of' course, the development does not stop here. I am already working for the next release, which I plan to be a smaller one, with some fixes and changes here and there, and maybe add more filter selections on podcasts section.



You can download it at OS4Depot and from my Github at
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault/releases/tag/v1.4.0

The project is open source and you can find the code at:
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault

If you have any requests or you would like to report any problems you found, you can do it at:
https://github.com/walkero-gr/mediavault/issues

Hope you will enjoy this new release.

Many thanks for such an awesome program for OS4 users. I just downloaded the 1.4 update and the streaming music works fine but when I try to open a podcast, amigaamp opens fine and says "Connecting prebuffering.." then "Stopped" and a window pops up with a blue circled "I" and nothing else inside it but a CANCEL button.

When I click CANCEL, Amigaamp then says "Can't open stream".

I'm using an X5000/020.

Tim

Figured it out. I took another look at the requirements and discovered I was running an older version of AmigaAmp. Once I updated to the latest the podcasts section started working. I am getting unsupported stream format at times tho. The Amigos podcasts for example.

Thank you so much for using my MediaVault. AmigaAmp is the best, free program that we currently have to stream audio. The podcasts replay is something that we didn't have before, and possible there are streams that were never tested with AmigaAmp.

Now that there is a need, the best thing is to contact AmigaAmp developer to let him know about these streams, and ask him to fix them, if possible. What you can do is to save the playlist with the broken podcast URL and send it to him.

From my side, I plan in one of the next versions, to add a way to save the podcast as a file locally and let the user load it in AmigaAmp.

If you have in mind any other player that would play better these kind of streams, please let me know.

Thank you very much for your comment here. It helps me a lot.

Thanks again walkero. Just bought you a coffee and will continue to donate from time to time when I can.

Will contact the AmigaAmp developer and send him the URL for a couple of the podcasts that say unsupported format.

Look forward to the next versions. Really appreciate your efforts for bringing this to we OS 4 users. So glad to have it.

Thank you so much for your support and your kind words. Making useful software for people that love to use AmigaOS 4, is the best thing for me, while I learn new stuff.

I inform everyone that follows me on ko-fi/walkero or on twitter.com/gsokianos about the next steps of the application or any new updates. So, make sure you have a look on these channels. Of course I will update this thread from time to time.

A rather small update of MediaVault is coming.

Today I finished a new way to discover interesting podcasts in MediaVault, using the trending endpoint from PodcastindexOrg API. Now, you can search for the best podcasts of the world and filter them out based on category and language.

Also implemented an idea I had on how to give to all of you a way to set your preferred media player, instead of relying on AmigaAmp3. A new script I created is now used to launch the player. This script can be edited by anyone and you can set which player to be used. There are a couple of examples in there to make it easier for all of you. This way, the problem we had with some podcasts not working on AmigaAmp3 can be solved.

I would recommend using Emotion, but since this is a commercial, a very good free solution is ffplay.

A beta version already reached my monthly supporters at https://ko-fi.com/walkero with these extra cool new features. If you want to get early beta versions, please consider to support my work at the link above. And remember, 50% of the donations will go to other projects.
