Hey folks.

Small bugfix release for AlienBBC has been released. There are a few
bits and pieces in there, but I think we'll try a reasonably swift
turnaround for these releases until we decide we're pretty much there.

Changes this time:

* Fixed some Streams in Other Streams menu, that were relying on the old
transcoder_proxy. [Triode]
* German Translation of strings in AlienBBC Helper added [Michael Herger]
* Fix crashing bug in web interface for BBC7 streams [Jules]
* Contributed mplayer.sh script for MacOS/X [Steve Martin]
* Removed requirement for separate v6 and v5.41 versions [Jules + Triode]
* Additional Safety checks to stop crashers in RTSP.pm from buggy
slimserver v6 code [Triode]

So... thanks to everybody who contributed.

As ever... AlienBBC is avilable from the usual place:
http://www.mrtickle.org/alienbbc.html

This version is available from the 'Beta Versions' page... and it's v0.92.

Excellent! This also fixes some bugs I never reported :-)

One problem, though (not for me, as I'm using the german translation ;-)):
There's a space before the tab in the following lines:

One more thing.... I still don't get that custom-convert.conf from your
tarball. rtsppl streams won't work out of the box.

Don't worry: I know how to fix it manually ;-)

Damn. Right. Fixed in our CVS repository. I'll have to roll out another
release... but it'll need to wait until I'm not at work.

Michael,

Tarball should include:
custom-types.conf - custom types file
slimserver-convert.conf - custom convert file

Do you get these in the tarball?

If so assuming there are no commands which clash in types.conf and convert.conf, it should work out of the box. Which platform are
you running on?

Yes, these two. But the latter is lacking support for thos rtsppl streams.
Jules told me it should be in the custom-convert.conf - which does not
exist. Maybe it should only be custom-convert.conf, but not
slimserver-convert.conf?

I know it's picky but could we remove the space before the ...'s (e.g.
Connecting ... becomes Connecting...).

Hi Jules,

I see you've added a darwin folder to the linux tar, but there is no
mplayer.sh script inside it :)
