nessMediaCenter 1.7.4 & nessViewer 3.7.3 for Mac available


Together with the (64-bit) Mac App Store version of nessMediaCenter are now nessMediaCenter 1.7.4 & nessViewer 3.7.3 for Mac available.

Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra) – or how Apple is now writing: macOS 10.12 – will be available at 20.9. – we tested our applications with a pre-release version and adapted the path to the data of the “Photos App” so that the media can be accessed with Sierra in the media center.

In the 64 bit versions, GPS data (country, city) now appears for movies in the media center if available – and in the 64 bit version of nessViewer a map with the GPS location can be opened in movie editing and in media shows.

We have also in the 64 bit version of nessViewer improved the movie processing, fixes a bug in the dialog for changing the size and added a higher resolution for the export.
And if you start the media presentation via the toolbar, then the selected folders will be monitored and new media automatically added to the current presentation.

For Retina, adjustments are also available: the export of preview images (covers) in the movie info are now scaled correctly – and in image processing, the changing of the size correctly calculated (from Mac OS X 10.10 or newer in the 64 bit version of nessViewer).

Unfortunately we found a bug in the Apple system framework “DVDPlayback” which prevents DVD playback on Macs without internal DVD drives (bug report 28133794) – even if an external DVD drive is connected. The “DVD Player” can play DVDs – either Apple found a trick or is not using its framework. We have no feedback from Apple until now…

Addendum: meanwhile Apple has closed the bug report without notification – unfortunately the bug still exists. We informed Apple and hope that they will reopen the bug report – and fix the bug of course.
