JRiver Media Center

Gregory2001 » March 31st, 2019, 2:14 pm

Since upgrading from Media Center 24 to 25, Now Playing doesn't work anymore. Can anybody help with this? Thanks.

It works perfectly, at least the basic functions. The skin displays the title and the artist, it jumps to the next and previous piece. So, there are no such issues for me. I'm using the Example code, posted on the Help page of the NowPlaying measure.
Maybe post the code you're working with.

I'm not getting anything. No titles. "Open Player" doesn't work either. It has to be something with the upgrade. It works perfectly with Media Center 24. Every skin I try, still no go. Thanks.

Have no idea what to say, because as I said, the example skin does work for me, even with MC 25. Please post a code or a link where any of those skins can be downloaded.
Or first try to restart the computer.

On the help page of the NowPlaying measure, downside there is an example code. That's what I talked about.
If you want to try it out, take care to modify the PlayerName=iTunes option of the [MeasurePlayer] measure to PlayerName=CAD. This is what you have to use for whatever version of JRiver Media Center.

Let's clarify something.
You asked for help, because some (precisely undefined, at least for us - me) skins using NowPlayer measures don't work any more after you've upgraded the JRiver Media Center from version 24 to 25.
But as I said, I also tried to upgrade and for me, the example code posted on the Help page of the NowPlaying easures, does perfectly works, even with version 25 of the software.
So, please post a code of one of those skins which doesn't work for you (especially if you still need help). I understand you're using the PlayerName=CAD option, but there could be some other issues, too. So, again, please post a code.
