I dont know if this might help but while watching a Netflix movie - if you press the select button (middle button) on the remote - it pauses the movie. Pressing it again resumes the movie.
Is that key treated differently?

Feature Request --
It would be nice to be able to hit the play button at the folder level and let system start playing sequentially through the sub-folders.. I have 3 eagles albums and I just want to be at the parent eagles folder and hit play and let the system work through all 3 albums.. Does that make sense?
What if you were able to start playing in one folder and instead of looping forever in that folder it would transition to the next one from the folder above? This way you pick a song from your first eagles album and it would move through to the next eagles album when it hit the end of the folder.

We could drop down into a new view when a song is selected. Does roSpringboard (a type of layout on the roku... not to be confused with our installer) capture play button presses? Of course, if we do that then we can just make Pause/Resume into menu options if the play button is still uncatchable.
Yes, and that may be what we'll have to do if want pause functionality. It would change the "feel" of the channel quite a bit, though. I don't think you could browse your music collection while you're playing music. If you left the Springboard screen, I suppose you could go back into browse mode, but then you wouldn't be able to pause anymore. I suppose I could whip something up and let people comment on it. This would be so much easier if all of the remote buttons always got sent to the app.
Thanks for all of the work on this.
I was able to install and get the My Video folder working perfectly
The music folder however does not work
<type 'exceptions.IOError'> at /feed
(9, 'Bad file descriptor')
Python D:\Downloads\netguy204-roku_media_server-a602ef2\netguy204-roku_media_server-a602ef2\server\rss_server.py in file2item, line 130
Web GET http://192.168.1.253:8001/feed
The only file-type in the folder is mp3
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply.
Pathing is correct -
Also downloaded latest version -
Below is the full traceback - hope it helps
I'm apparently using an old version already (love the pace of development here!) and so my remarks might be obsolete, but I have a couple of large images in some of my album folders that are being picked up as album art, and it really slows down navigation. Obviously there's a solution in my hands (delete or resize those images) but I thought it might be worth suggesting that the client could have a size limit for the images it picks up as album art, or perhaps the server could create a thumbnail image.
My quirky router might be the culprit, but after a long idle period within the channel and between uses of the channel I cant play anything without restarting the roku, reinstalling the client, and restarting the server. I'm sorry I can't report what version I am running; I'm not at home now.
Thanks for all your work, and I'm really excited to see an open source project like this evolving on the public forum. It says a lot about the community, and even more about Roku.
I noticed an undesirable behavior tonight. For whatever reason (maybe my computer was asleep), My Media couldn't connect to the server, so it brought up the error screen. The only choices are to manually enter the IP address (which was already correct) or try again -- there is no way to cancel or back out. I clicked to try again, but that didn't work. The only thing I could think of was to press the home button, which did work to get me out of that error screen. However, as I was navigating through the other channels I kept being taken back to the My Media error screen after 2-3 seconds. I finally had to just quickly choose a random channel get out of the loop.
BTW, I'm using a602ef2.
