Software News   Software News : AMC v1.2 for AROS and AmigaOS4.x has been released!
   posted by Allanon on 5-Dec-2010 10:33:57 (6867 reads)
Hi All,
I'm proud to announce that AMC v1.2 has been released for AROS and for AmigaOS4.x systems.
AMC is the ultimate Media Center for all Amiga systems, available now for AROS and AmigaOS4.x, and in the coming days for MorphOS too.
It's designed to be remote friendly and simple for the final user, AMC is a commercial software but you can try a demo version (with unlimited trial time) before buying it, you can download the demo from the

AMC site.


Here are the main AMC features:
• Easy navigation model and remote friendly
• AMC uses MPlayer for audio and video playback so you will be able to play any media that MPlayer can handle.
• Unlimited favorites
• Unlimited playlists
• WebTV and WebRadio
• WebTV recording thanks to an integrated job scheduler, while you continue to enjoy your media
• Slideshow and FunnySlider to enjoy your pictures
• High configurability thanks to plain text configuration files
• AMC can be entirely skinned (themes)
• Powerfull PlugIn system to expand or even patch AMC
• Full access to the internal media databases
• TMDb (The Movie Database) integration
• ID3 tag reading of your MP3 files
• Easy organization and browsing through keywords
Please head to the AMC site for further details

At this link there is a dedicated forum where you can discuss about AMC features, suggestions, PlugIn development and Skinning of the interface, you are all invited to join, it's not restricted to registered user but it's open to all.
Suggestions and critics are always welcome, I wish that AMC would become *THE* media center for our beloved Amiga systems!

With this release has finally been completed the User Guide, it's included with the new packages or downloadable separately from the AMC site, this way interested people will be able to have a first impression even before downloading the program.

Since the v1.1 version has been fixed many bugs and here is what has been changed in details:
• KeyBindings was not saved correctly : FIXED
• In rare occasions, during the scan system procedure, AMC exited with a false "Out of Memory" error: FIXED
• Now the installer setup an icon for the AMC drawer
• Fixed a bug in the installer (buttons disabled when the installation window was closed)
• Added a video feedback when AMC is generating long menu items just to let the user know that AMC is still working.
• Fixed a bug in Audio CD section (OS4 version): ESC was not stopping PlayCDDA
• Fixed a bug in Audio CD section (OS4 version): AMC was throwing an error if the CD was not present
• Fixed the double "Audio CD not detected" message when the user is trying to play an audio CD but the CD is not present.
• Fixed a bug in the mounted volumes detection routine
• Fixed a bug in thumbnail drawer for non square thumbnails grid
• Fixed a bug in the Thumbnail generator, sometimes there was generated 1 pixel height thumbnails: FIXED
• Translated a missing string in the TMDb section
• Fixed a bug in the TMDb section caused by the missing translation string
• Fixed items count in category browser (in video section there were always counted two items less)
• Fixed a wrong behavious when in Image section and pressing the Home key to return to the main manu: sometimes the thumbnail frame wasn't removed after exiting the image section.
• Added support for 7ZipDec (OS4 version) to manage .app files (AMC PlugIn Pack)
• Fixed a bug in the Uninstall PlugIn function
• Fixed a couple of bugs in the Theme handler
• Added the command line parameter
-slowcpu 1
This switch is very usefull for computer with slow CPU like the SAM440ep, if you use this switch the following effects will be modified:
• • Menu RefreshFX = #REVEALLEFT instead of #CROSSFADE
• • Menu GoBackFX = #REVEALRIGHT instead of #CROSSFADE
• • Menu FXSpeed increased
• • Menu grouping value = 50 instead of 100
• • PhotoMode Size decreased by 50 pixel width and height
• • Photomode Rotation OFF
• • PhotoMode animation OFF
• • Audio Player FXSpeed increased
• • Progress bar update feedback decreased
• • FX update frequency increased
• • Help windows alpha channel disabled
• • Help windows animations disabled

• • Funny Slider will be launched at 800x600
This switch is available as ToolType too, it is set as (SETCPU=1) by default: disabled by default

• In the Slideshow configuration file (Slider in the theme folder), now you can specify a negative effect code: this way the slideshow will be less responsive but more smooth. Really usefull for light themes for slow CPU.

Seiya deserves a public "thank you" for his help in bug hunting and his feedback!



AMC
Be entertained!

By the way: I don't like my "startup-sequence" altered by *any* application install script! This is a no-go! If you really have something that should be started during boot please use the "user-startup" and communicate this to the user - and give him the chance to do it himself manually!


+1!
that really annoyed me. that's what user-startup is good for. or even better the wbstartup! on os4 this is now even more easy without duplicating any data.

regards...

Ok i have read this on amigans too. I suggested Fabio to don't activate it as standard on AmigaOS. Plus if then it could be handled via WBstartup.

BUT! The message you are talking about says that you didn't use the installer ; )

Can you please try to use the slow cpu flag and go to setting and choose the LessFX Theme? Maybe than it works well also with the scheduler in the background.

Yea sorry I was a bit quick of the mark there it works very well after applying the tweaks you mentioned. I love Hollywood and was surprised by the lack of speed in AMC.

I have a possible bug to report:

I installed AMC OK, (On OS4.1, SAM440EP) but when scanning for media, I get an error when scanning the OS4 partition:



So so far I can't actually test any further as I cannot add media

Some more testing:

When browsing for media, I try to browse WORK: but I get a workbench requester asking to assign or mount it, seems it is looking for WORK : (Note the space between the WORK and the :)

Mplayer crashed with a DSI error when trying to switch TV channels, but that's more to do with Mplayer than AMC

@Seiya
Did you change the path of mplayer in your settings? I ask because the borders around the window.... shouldn't be there. AMC has a newer Version included, and a much faster one.

I realized that Stephen suggested Fabio to add this Version to IcAROS, i am unsure if he did.

Do you know how long it will be before a fixed version will be released?

@TiredofLife

The fixed version is almost completed, there is only one more bug related with links. Tomorrow I will fix it and if there aren't no more problems (I hope so!) I'll publish a new fixed version

in short: one more day

After this quick fix I'll work on the installer and on the "Please don't touch my Startup-Sequence" problem

Ok, I'm just joking, you're right ;)

I know I'll get taken outside and stoned for this but....
The startup sequence being modified didn't bother me.
I'm old school, I still remember the days when this got changed by third party programs all the time.

The bug fixes will do for me, thanks for the update.

Hi, I don't know if it's just my machine (G3SE), but from the moment it boots, AMC Scheduler appears to be stuck in a loop, this is without AMC itself being started, eventually the machine slows right down though not actually crashing. Is this normal or a bug ? (reminds me of the MPlayer/Pthread problem) here is a sample of the repetitive output via snoopy.

00001 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [170uS]
00002 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [51uS]
00003 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [156uS]
00004 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [49uS]
00005 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [157uS]
00006 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [51uS]
00007 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [164uS]
00008 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [51uS]
00009 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [169uS]
00010 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [51uS]
00011 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [177uS]
00012 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [51uS]
00013 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [167uS]
00014 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [79uS]
00015 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [172uS]
00016 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [52uS]
00017 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [166uS]
00018 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [50uS]
00019 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [164uS]
00020 : Scheduler : o.k. = ExamineObject(0x621CBAA8) [50uS]
00021 : Scheduler : o.k. = Lock("Jobs.adb",SHARED) [169uS]

The Scheduler shuts down from the shell ok and I have commented it out from the startup sequence.
Looking forward to using it fully,
Richard

Hi Draby,
The scheduler is not stucked, it is simply checking if the jobs.adb file is changed. This file is where all scheduled recording are saved by AMC, but can be modified by anyone because is a plain text file.In the next release I'll ask the user before activate it by default, so if you don' t use planned web tv recording it' s fine to have commented out it in the startup-sequence
