Just a "Hello" from west of the Pecos.

Discovered Serviigo after downloading, trying, and then deleting about 30 Android apps on my Samsung GS7. Only Serviigo saw my Serviio server and played the files therein. Very happy.

I believe I saw that Serviigo requires the "Pro" version of Serviio in order to receive the media. Is that correct? My Serviio installation is less than 1 day old so the "Pro" trial period must be enabled for now.

Just in case anyone is interested, I have been running a TVMobili server (on an older Mac). The clients are Roku's (Stick, and Roku2). But the old Mac is starting to fail and I thought I'd give Serviio a shot on an old Dell Vostro laptop that is running Windows 10 (no problems!). The Roku's are perfectly happy with Serviio on the Vostro so it seems I'm ready for the switch. (I'm only using LAN access.)

While I don't seem to have any issues, advice from those more experienced in these matters is always appreciated.

Thanks,
Barry

Hi,

Yes that is correct. ServiiGo uses Serviio 'CDS API' which works at home and over the internet that is limited to the Pro version of Serviio. There are a few more details http://serviio.org/buy-pro/10-uncategor ... ree-vs-pro And yes, you get a 15 day trial of Serviio Pro each time you install a new version.

If you just want LAN access for your phone and don't need the remote access features, then also take a look at BubbleUPnP, that works nicely with Serviio (including the free one).

Hello,

Fully registered user of Serviio and I love it! We all do in our family since we can all enjoy the family photos and videos from year 2003 when me and now my wife met, 2013 when our first child was born and 2016 when our second one was born.

I am sure it was already discussed but I can't find. Two things would be perfect for the Android application.

1. Chromecast support

Currently I am cloning the entire phone screen to my Chromecast which is consuming too much battery. Or I am missing some other way to perfectly view everything from Serviio server on my TV? I do have a smart Android powered TV but Serviio is not on the allowed app list in TVs Google play.

2. Automatic image/video upload

When I take a picture or record a video I would like the images/videos to automatically sync on my Serviio server in specific folders (based on date), like I have them ordered now. I know Plex could do that since I was a member for one month before I discovered Serviio. Is it possible to implement this?

Thank you.

1. See viewtopic.php?f=17&t=6803&p=96696#p96696 for how to enable experimental support

2. Can you please file a ticket on the Serviio issue tracker as that would need server side support first

So after an embarrassingly long delay (I've been doing commits every now and then to this branch for 2 years!), I finally have a beta version of the next release ready. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere near as much time to work on it as I used to, so have had to cut back the plans for it. Nevertheless, there are a number of improvements. Please give it a test and let me know how it goes.

If you aren't already a beta tester, sign up at https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.serviigo

  Code:
=== 5.0 Beta 1 ===
*Removed support for very old versions of Android, minimum version is now Android 4.0
*Removed support for Serviio 1.2, minimum version is now Serviio 1.3
*Added support for Serviio 1.7/1.8
*Experimental Google Cast support is now enabled for all beta testers
*Improved re-connection process
*Updated design
*Added full support for Android 6.0 runtime permissions
*Most features are now in the free version
*Various minor fixes and improvements
*Updated SDK, build tools and libraries
