CloudPlayer  - 
 
A question about how Airplay/Googlecast works with Cloudplayer.

Both those systems have limits on what audio formats they can handle. Just how does Cloudplayer work streaming FLAC/ALAC files with them? Does the client transcode them on the fly?

Hello Jason,

We're currently working on a help page with a chart on what formats are supported and from what sources as it can get confusing.

For Chromecast, FLAC is supported. We have tested 16-bit 44kHz, 24-bit 44kHz, 24-bit 192kHz, and 24-bit 88kHz 5.1. (Please note this is for streaming only. Local playback support is limited to 16-bit 44Khz FLAC at this time.)

For Airplay. only 16-bit 44kHz FLAC is supported. We are working on adding 24-bit and 192kHz support to Airplay in a future release.

Thanks,
Henry

So having used a Nexus Player for a while now, here's a gripe I've had. Dunno if its a bug in AndroidTV or working as intended.

My issues are with the recommendation list and search from the home screen.

I have Google Play Music and Plex installed and enabled for search and reccomendations, but unless I've already opened those apps I never get reccomendations from them and search results from them are not returned.

Yeah wasn't sure Netflix did, but I leave it on in case they decide to make something useful. Play unfortunately recommends things I already have in Plex ;)

Just started using the app recently. Its actually got me back using MAL.

A couple of small requests though.

I'm seeing that re-watches of shows don't show up and so I'm unable to change the episodes watched during rewatches. Related to that, being able to initiate a rewatch would be nice.

And another, though it may be impossible, I wish I could sort lists by most recently updated.

I believe +Michael Johnson said that rewatches are on the long term roadmap. They require API updates that have to be made in Atarashii's unofficial MAL bridge.

Don't know if this is a coincidence or not, but it seems like ever since I upgraded my PC from Windows 8 to 8.1 the ChromeCast extension can never see my ChromeCast. 

Anyone had any issues like this?

Been trying this out. For some reason airplay doesn't work for me. Casting to googlecast devices works for me though.

Hello +Jason M,

That's very odd. It's not clear why your configuration causing issues. I've created a ticket to have the QA/Dev team investigate further as I have not been able to reproduce.

Thanks,
Henry

Well I just bought a nexus player and have some thoughts on my initial experience.

1. It seems the HDMI syncing is not 100%. Sometimes I need to turn my receiver on and off a few times for it to pickup the player signal. First time I've seen this with a hdmi device. Is this common or do I have a bad device?

2. My random microUSB 2 ethernet adapter does not work with it. I guess there are only specific combos that work or something.

3. Like that voice search works with plex. Bummed its only titles.

4. Bummed integration with netflix is not there, esp voice search.

Overall though the platform holds promise. Looking forward to see more support from app makers.

Honestly it's easier to use Chromecast to watch Netflix instead of your native all.

I got myself access to the new Google maps preview. Huzzah.

Purty.

All the map related google stuff is really quite well integrated. And I do like the whole 'the map is the interface' thing. 

Loading seems a bit slow to me though. Dunno if thats evidence of the bandwidth it uses and my shitty internet or its just as aspect of it being in testing mode.

Do wish it would open centered on my location rather than a zoomed out US.

David Yonge-Mallo originally shared:
 
Circles are useful for more than just sharing with others

I have a "Read later" circle and a "Drafts" circle, both of which include only myself.

When I see a post I want to read later, I share it only with my "Read later" circle. Then when I have some time, I open that circle and read through (and delete) the saved posts.

When I have an idea for a post, but no time to write it, I draft a rough version and share it with my "Drafts" circle. I can edit the draft by using "Edit this post" from the dropdown menu. When the post is complete, I just copy it to a new post that I can then share to my circles, after which I delete the draft post.

You can easily extend these ideas to collaborative sharing and editing.

Have fun!
