After the DLNA bug fix for the support of miniDLNA (middle of December) we continued to work on the improvements in this version to extend the access to miniDLNA and to use nessViewer as an iCloud alternative in better way. In addition to minor improvements in accessing miniDLNA (date and duration of videos in a more readable form, preview of movies), the access of DLNA media servers outside the local network is now …

After we intensively tested miniDLNA, installed on the Raspberry Pi, we noticed a few things that were not so optimally. On one hand, the date of videos was displayed in an illegible form and the duration directly behind it. Now the date is displayed localized and the duration in the 2nd line. In addition, a preview is now displayed for videos. We have read the opportunity to create a cover for each video and to change the miniDLNA configuration. But that is too complex for us with so many videos. However, the video preview …

After a loan was unfortunately too old to install OpenMediaVault 4 on it, we invested in Raspberry Pi – and unfortunately we had to find …

After the adaptions for iOS 13 (nessViewer, finessTV) and tvOS 13 (nessMediaCenter, finessTV), the adaptions for macOS 15 (Catalina) are now available. So far, we had been waiting with the updates for macOS 15, because unfortunately (again this time) Apple has not reacted to our bug report. And through this bug, the access to the media of the Photos App fails with macOS 15. Unfortunately, this bug was not fixed even with macOS 15.1, but since Apple made this update now generally available, we have no other choice. As with macOS 14, we hope that Apple …

Version 3.9.1 now officially supports some new features that have been added in version 3.9 in recent months. The HEIC image format e.g. is now officially supported (if the macOS version supports it). Although the “Photos App” can export the original files or the media in a compatible format (converting HEIC to JPEG), the latter will not preserve the original date. Although the media of the “Photos App” could already be imported into a
