View Full Version : Web viewer always reverts to the first player in the list.

2006-03-06, 03:43

I have multiple players however when I try to control a player through the web interface and perform an action to play or add to the player's playlist, the interface always posts back with the player changed to the first player in the drop-down list. When I go back to the player I supposedly added the entries to it's playlist is blank and so is the first player's playlist.

In fact, the only player I can ever add to successfully is the first player in the drop-down list.

I also use the Telcanto PPC client, and this works perfectly with all players.

Any ideas?

It sounds like perhaps the left side of the page is not refreshing when
you change the dropdown on the right hand side.
The link behind the button that you're clicking should have a player
parameter than indicates which one it will take action against.
Have you checked that this is the correct player?

You don't say which skin and browser you're using - may be there are
known bugs there.

Also, some skins (Fishbone?) I believe set the default player with a
cookie so you might have more luck with them.

Please tell us what version of slimserver you are using.

There was a bug in this area, but it was fixed a while ago.

I'm having the same issue. I'm running the following:

SlimServer Version: 6.2.1 - 5194 - Linux - EN - utf8 (SuSE 10.0)

I believe this is this bug:
which is fixed in 6.2.2

You have 2 options:
1. install 6.2.2
2. wait for 6.2.2 to become the generally available code
(I gather this will be happening "soon" but I don't know what "soon" is exactly).

Do you want to try 1.? Do you know how? Do you need assistance?

I'll try v6.2.2, if I have problems I'll know where to come.
