About

Welcome to the App for MLS4.

You will find the Musiclobby V4 app in the Installation assistant along with updated sample client scenes supporting the new commands and features. You will need the latest Content Manager to import your old V3 database and then edit your music collection.

This is an early beta. It is feature complete but there is surely to still be some bugs in it. Musiclobby 4 has been completely rewritten. One thing that is not in this release is support for remote Music zones via the ClientSvc app. This will be forthcoming but wasn't critical for the first pass.

Some of the new features are 1) Support for all popular audio formats including flac, ogg and ape files. 2) Content manager can rip to lossless formats include FLAC 3) Artist Fan art will be included on album detail and now playing pages 4) Song lyrics will automatically be downloaded if they can be located. 5) The user interface now matches the Gen 2 scenes. 6) The music library will automatically be synced at 3am every day 7) You can specify folders to be ignored during a network scan 8) Shuffle is a real shuffle
