New remote application for JRiver - "Panel"
« on: November 17, 2017, 08:33:10 AM »
In addition to JRemote, which has been available for years on iOS and Android, JRiver has introduced "Panel" for JR, which works within a browser

From JRiver:

The web page in the screenshot is generated by MC and it brings together many of the client apps that we've built. It builds on work we've done over the years, and on a lot of recent work by most members of the team. It looks simple, but it isn't.
Panel is a suite of apps in one location, a smart web app that's easy to use. It provides direct access to apps that you may have used or heard about: WebGizmo, WebPlay, WebRemote, Engen, and MC.

It's friendly. Point and click (or touch). Something happens.

The settings icon provides remote access to the JRiver Id settings now and will give you access to some of MC's settings in the future.

The + icon leads to more apps.

Panel will be expanded to include other apps. It will always be the easy to find launch point.

On a desktop: 

Panel on a Phone:   

Instructions

Make sure JR Media Center or Media Server is running. Media Network must be turned on in MC settings.

Open Panel from a web browser on any device by entering this URL:

http://[IP_Address]:52199 (changing [IP_Address] to your own IP address) Example: http://192.168.0.13:52199

For a secure connection, you can use port 52200:
https://[IP_Address]:52200 (changing [IP_Address] to your own IP address) Example: https://192.168.0.13:52200 (not that this uses https, not http)
http://localhost:52199 or https://localhost:52200 will do the same thing when the browser is running on the same machine as MC.

Your firewall must accept inbound connections on the port you use. Please see our wiki topic called Network Access for more information.
If you have set "Authentication" on your server (under Media Network settings), you will be asked for a login and password. The log is visible in MC's Media Network settings.

Even duct tape can’t fix stupid… but it can muffle the sound

Have you tried using it as a remote?
I'm happier with plain ol' Gizmo, though I may use Panel to access my entire library when I travel. I don;t like leaving drives plugged in though.

I just use MC23 to make my library look nice and send music to my DAC at the moment...all this new-fangled network connectivity stuff is extraneous to my current needs.  :coffee:

Good to know tho'.
