View Full Version : Browser refresh on nightly build plus coverart size

I'm running the Jan. 12th nightly build. After a playlist has finished, the
browser starts refreshing every second, and doesn't return to normal until
play is started again or the playlist is cleared.

Also, I'd like to see an option in the default skin to limit the size of
coverart when displayed inline with album or song info. Some of my coverart
is 500x500 or larger, which takes up a lot of real estate in the browser
frame. I've been manually editing the skin to constrain the coverart to a
width of 200, but I have to re-edit everytime I update the server. It would
be nice if there were some way to set this once and for all.

This is a bug, related to non-repeat mode. The playlist goes to the beginning,
but the server isn't being told that the playback has stopped. This is the same
bug that shows "Now Playing" on the player when a non-repeated playlist is
completed.

One way to fix your cover art issue: Instead of editing teh skin every time,
just make a copy of the "Default" directory, and name it something else like
"MyCustomSkin", then select "MyCustomSkin" from server settings->additional
settings->interface.
