Here's the newsletter we mailed today.



Beta builds of JRiver Media Center 17.0 are now available.

You can purchase at a special price through November 15. Upgrade for
$18.98 or purchase a new license for $44.98. Learn more on the new MC17
board here:

If you've already upgraded, Thank you!

Two Upgrades for the Price of One
If you purchase either MC16 or MC17 now, you will receive an MC17 license
that works with both versions (this began on October 1). Upgrade
instructions and a partial list of new features of MC17 so far are here:

Alternate Purchase Method
If you'd like to take advantage of the reduced upgrade price, but don't want
to install MC17 yet, just visit the link above for details.

Play Doctor Makes it Simple
Enter any artist and MC will build a four hour playlist of similar music.
It's an easy way to enjoy your music.

The Audiophile Choice
MC17 has DSD support. JRiver continues to be the leader in audiophile
quality music. Most audiophile equipment manufacturers now know or
recommend JRiver. Manufacturers include Ayre, Linn, PSAudio, BelCanto, and
many others.

Volume Leveling on Device Sync
MC17 can apply volume leveling and other DSP effects when you sync to a

Upsample by Samplerate
You can set MC17 to output 88.2 kHz for all your 44.1 files, but set it to
96 kHz for your 48.0 files. Specify what you want for each samplerate.

MC16's Red October method of using DirectShow filters has been extremely
successful in making high quality video available without any setup
problems. MC has earned a position as a first tier video player and HTPC
solution. MC17's subtitle engine is the best available.

Blu-ray Discs and Rips Play Now
MC now plays Blu-ray discs or rips with full control of the audio stream so
you can enjoy surround sound. See the New Features topic on the MC17 board
for a link.

Play Your Videos and DVD's with Android
MC17 can convert and stream video to Gizmo on an Android device. You could
watch a DVD in bed on a Samsung Galaxy Tab, for example.

Movie Info
With a ripped Blu-ray or DVD, you can right click and choose "Look up Movie
Info" to get cover art, plot summaries, actors, etc. Sources include TMDb,
Wikipedia, and Rotten Tomatoes.

MC17 has a new grid style EPG. MC will automatically display background art
from TVDB for TV programs.

Library Backup and Restore
You may know that MC makes automatic backups. Now you can choose to restore
your settings when you restore a backup. This is a great way to transfer
settings to another PC.

Share the Good News
Please consider helping us expand the JRiver sphere by linking to our site
or by posting on other forums. We've grown nicely in the last few years,
but we'd love to accelerate our development. You can help make that happen.

A New Look at JRiver
We've launched a new web site at jriver.com. It's a structural change
that will allow us to address different kinds of customers differently.
Audiophiles and Videophiles will now have different areas to explore, for
example. And we've changed the company name from J. River to JRiver to make
searches work better.

Thanks for your support.

Best regards,


Startup mode can be specified under Tools/Option/Startup. You can set MC to
start where you left it last time, for example, or with the same tabs shown.

Features can be removed in Tools/Options/General/Features. Simplify the
program to show just what you want. Services can be removed in
Tools/Plug-in Manager/Services. Click the small triangle next to "Store"
and select what you want, then press Hide or Show.
