MediaVault 1.5.0 released
« on: September 12, 2021, 12:11:38 PM »
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.

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.

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

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.

I just released MediaVault v1.4.1.

This version brings the following:
- Added an error message when podcast response is not a successful one
- Added scripts/start_player.sample script. This can be used to set the preferred player. This needs to be renamed as start_player to be used. The reason the file is named like that is to avoid replacements in future updates. The file includes configuration for different supported players, but more can be added.
- Added Trending Podcasts search based on category and/or language
- Added radio station bitrate and codec information in results list and at the right sidebar.
- Changed the about window to add more information.
- Fixed the error of not finding the texteditor.gadget on start

I just released MediaVault v1.5.0.

This version brings the following:
* Added the ability to mark favourite radio stations and podcasts.
  A new list is created where you can find them and select one to
  listen to
* Added an asterisk above the play button that helps the users to
  add the selected podcast or radio station to the favourite list.
  It also works as an indicator if the selected item is already
  in the list or not.
* Added "Listen Later" list which will have the marked podcasts
  episodes which the user select from the Bookmark button,
  above the play button.
* Added all the necessary images into the archive, with
  Martin (Mason) Merz permission
* Added help hint texts at the play, bookmark and favourite
  buttons
* Compiled with libcurl 7.79.1
* Removed the small boxes at the end of each line at the update
  changelog text
* Code simplified and cleaned in some places
* Fixed issues that could make MediaVault crash system at the
  image download section. This fixed also some images that were
  not downloaded. So now it will be able to show more images
  than before.
* When the radio station and podcast list was populated but a
  the new search brought no results, the lists were not cleared and
  the choices were not usable. Now the list remains as it was,
  with the results it had, but the choices are usable, as they
  were.

I would like to inform you all about the projects me and my supporters donated today.

Since I started my ko-fi page I decided that by donating to me you also donate to other projects and developers, as I donate 50% of the goal or monthly amount to others.

This month we supported JPV and Orgin for OS4Depot.net and for the tremendous work they do.

Once more, I would like to thank all my supporters for your generous donations and support. With your help and love, you help me do the best work I can and provide it free to everyone.
