nessMediaCenter 1.6 & nessViewer 3.6 for Mac available


The music video portal Clipfish offers for some time also German motion pictures - both are now available in the MediaCenter in 29 categories and can be sorted by criteria (new, best, most viewed). And of course by selecting a category (by "+" and then PLAY or RETURN), e.g the contained music videos can be played continuously.

Currently, satirical, cross - the Bavarian magazine "Quer" is now available in the MediaCenter at "Deutsches Fernsehen" - but do not worry: it is spoken "hochdeutsch". In addition to the main media libraries (ARD, ZDF, RTL, RTL Nitro, SuperRTL, VOX), there are of course still also a lot of other interesting magazines... And under "Live Broadcasts (Countries)" at "German" also all public German TV broadcasters…

For Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), there are now new icons in the MediaCenter, which are adapted for Retina displays.

In testing we have found problems when streaming videos from Mac (nessViewer media server) to iOS (nessViewer App for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch). After hours of research, we have found the following solutions: for older iOS versions (4.x to 6.x ?) the older VLC version 2.0.9 must be installed on Mac, because Apple has expanded the M3U8 format without regard to compatibility (and VLC 2.1.x uses this new format). And for newer iOS versions (7.x ? and newer), we have updated nessViewer app - version 1.9.1 can be downloaded for registered devices on our website and will soon be available in the AppStore.

Some providers have also been adapted: e.g. Arte, ATV from Austria, BBC, MyVideo.
