Default New version 1.02


Update: Version 1.02 of the Justin.tv App has been released.
  • This build corrects a bug in the thumbnail hashing process that was causing any thumbnails starting with "0" to fail the updating process. This was affecting roughly 6% of the thumbnails.

  • Also new to this version are "More" and "Back" buttons which improve App usability when using the mouse. These buttons are of limited use when browsing with a Remote control (and are essentially disabled), but can serve as an indication that you have loaded all the available channels in the current category. (See the updated image above.)

  • Clicking the "right" button while viewing categories now loads the selected category, and selects the subcategory menu. This will ease navigation. Reselecting the active category selection will no longer reload the channels listing.

  • The "Viewers" listing near the large preview image was too small for me to read from my TV. I have increased the size of the field and darkened the background to improve contrast.

Default Update: Version 1.03 Released


Update: Version 1.03 of the Justin.tv App has been released.
  • The main channel interface now sports a scrollbar control, and the appearing/disappearing buttons have been jettisoned for permanent ones. The scrollbar control can only be used with the mouse because the scrollbar control is extremely limited when navigating with the remote. Mouse navigation should no longer seem like an add-on hack from now on.

  • Clicking the up and down buttons next to the scrollbar will advance the channel list by an entire screen, instead of a single row. If you are at the bottom of the channel list, additional channels can be loaded by paging down. The page up/page down buttons are available using either remote or mouse interface. Pressing 'up' or 'down' on these buttons will also scroll the channel list and seemed to be a natural fit with the remote.

  • Cleaned up the focus/unfocus animations to make the user interface much cleaner and more fluid. You'll find the interface won't "blink" as much now, particularly when you are using the mouse.

  • The channel list is now disabled when using the drop down menus. You'll no longer see different channels coming into/out of focus while mousing over the drop down menu.

  • Fixed one bug which could occur when using the mouse with the drop down menus, where a mismatch between the menu item displayed and the one actually selected could occur.

  • Performed a general clean up of the user interface, improving the visual appeal of the background and several of the controls.

I loaded the app url to Windows and it shows it as version 1.02 not 1.03. When I try to add the app to my profile I get the error: "could not add application."

I'll try it on my ATV later tonight.

That is very strange, considering I have just verified that all version strings in the xml/repository settings have been changed to 1.03. It almost sounds like old versions of the xml files are being cached by Boxee or by your internet provider-- and are pointing to the 1.02 version of the App, which is no longer available my server. (I only keep the most recent version up for download.)

I have re-updated both my AppleTV and my Mac with 1.03 from the repository to ensure the repository working correctly. All I can do at this point is ask you to retry it later, and maybe try deleting the repository/app before re-adding them to the app box.

Ike,
IC what you mean. I'll try to clear it out and re-download now and see.

UPDATE:

Started Boxee on my Windows machine. Went to New Applications and now it shows Justin.TV as 1.03! Very odd. Clicked it and it installed as it should. Hmmm.

Seems to work well! Thanks for the hard work!

Default Update: Version 1.04 Released


Update: Version 1.04 of the Justin.tv App has been released.
  • The language menu has been updated to remove the rendering errors when trying to print languages with unicode characters. As the list controls in Boxee (and XBMC) can not support unicode label strings, the languages have been encoded using the Latin-1 encoding. Hindi, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Taiwan) unicode strings have been replaced with their English equivalents.

  • The channel detail section on the right side of the screen has been updated to match the recent user interface changes. The "Now Playing" field has been enlarged so that the entire channel status string can be viewed.
