    BootsC5,

    Is there still development in this plugin?
    I am using Win7 now, and I really start to dislike Media Player, because it is slowing down my drive every time it starts to discover music. It even locks I/O on this drive.
    So I am wondering if media monkey would be an alternative, especially when I could have control over it on more then one PC with this plugin.
    But before I go around and install media monkey stuff on my HS PC I would like to know if you plan to continue with this plugin?

      Sporadic yes.

      Major changes since the last release:

      I moved to the xAP protocol for communications. Two downsides are, it currently takes a long time to move lots of data (think a large number of songs) and sometimes it will loose packets (since xAP is UDP based). This means that long playlists sometimes do not display all the data (but I send the data at intervals so eventually it will get there), and I have found over wifi transmitting the album art often gets garbled.

      Working backwards, the main plug-in will attempt to create a well known fileshare to copy the album art to, but on my box there is a bug where it is not properly finding the pre-created share that I want to track down. The visible side effects of this is some log entries.

      Second, I am going to send more data/packet and maybe even look into compression to reduce the number of packets to send.

      I also need to add logging to the remote instances to help trouble shooting.

      Its working, just not at a level I am happy with others playing with yet.

        BootsC5,

        Thanks for your quick and honest answer.
        I will wait then with this plugin and hope to see more in the future

          Version .6 is up, use the link at the top to get the latest version and view the updated notes.

          Right now I am looking to verify I have the all the pieces together in the zips and that a "virgin" install works.

            hi, I ended up with multiple instances in the "config" page so I tried to remove them. This removed all instances. How can I get them back? I have tried replacing the DLL files, disabled/enabled the plugin - no joy
