In this version of the nessMediaCenter App, we have revised and extended the control of the media presentation through the Siri remote control.
Previously, when presenting multiple media, the previous or next media (picture/movie) could be selected by swiping on the Siri Touch surface – but only for pictures, as the swipe for movies is intercepted by the movie system routines.
In addition, the movie presentation was zoomed by double-pressing on the touch surface – regardless of the position (left/middle/right). This also zoomed when, for example, you double-pressed on the right …
In this version of the nessViewer App we have fixed a few errors, including the Media Show with local media.
In addition, we have added the change of the playback speed to the movie presentation: movies can now be played at up to 8x speed or in slow motion up to 4x.
In this version we have improved the media server, the MediaCenter and the media presentation in addition to some internal routines.
New for the media server for macOS 10.15 and newer is the integrated movie segmenter (MPEG4AppleHLS), which breaks down movies into M3U8 segments and streams them to the media client (available in the MediaCenter). Previously only …
Although we actually have enough Apple hardware, we have now bought a new Apple computer in order to be able to test the new Apple processor Silicon M1 with our products.

The biggest surprise with the Mac Mini was that the MAC address changed – already known from iPhones, but not yet for us with Macs. Especially since no info was displayed even when starting the …

In addition, we have improved the movie editing so that movies with different orientations (portrait, landscape) can now be joined together in a better way.
The system routines (AVFoundation) unfortunately place the individual tracks at the top or left. When joining, the offset is now calculated in order to place these tracks centered.
