With this version, a bug in macOS 11 (Big Sur) and partly also macOS 10.15 (Catalina) is “bypassed” – unfortunately there is no other way of saying it. If a media title or description in the MediaCenter is longer than the available space, the rest of the text will be displayed automatically after a short time. Means scrolled, so to speak. So that this is displayed smoothly even on very large screens with high resolution, only the affected area is scrolled. The rest of the content is not displayed again during this time. …

In addition to further adaptions for macOS 11 (Big Sur) and minor improvements, the data rate and FPS (Frames Per Seconds) can now explicitly be specified when exporting movies in MPEG-4 format.

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.

nessMediaCenter App for AppleTV now supports miniDLNA too. We have been informed by Dennis that nessMediaCenter App for AppleTV can not access miniDLNA installed on the Raspberry Pi. So far, miniDLNA has not been specified as supported DLNA / UPnP media server, but Raspberry Pi is an interesting solution because of the low price.
