Based on Jürgen’s feedback, we have added features in this version that will mostly help users with a very long M3U playlist:
1.) With the channel search, channels can now be found quickly. This search can be hidden in the File menu if required.
2.) Moving a channel up via drag & drop is tedious with a very long list of channels. Therefore, you can now select “Move Current Channel To Top” in the File menu. Once you have your favorite channels at the top of the list, these channels can then be optimally …

In addition, it was noticed that messages were not always displayed in the event of access failures to a channel – …

In the past, we added the changeable font size of the channel list in the Stand-Alone application, and adopted the Mac applications for macOS 11.
Starting with these versions, the Stand-Alone and the client for Mac support native support of the Apple Silikon M1 chip as well.
