Release 24.2

Breaking Changes

No Breaking Changes on 24.2


Administration Panel

The new administration feature in the MediaPortal provides an interface for managing users and user groups, monitoring jobs, and managing export targets. This feature ensures convenient access to administration parts relevant for interface administration on VidiCore installations that do not have VidiFlow and LDAP integration.

It enhances the administrative capabilities of the MediaPortal application, making it easier for administrators to manage users, monitor jobs, and handle export targets. It simplifies the workflow and provides essential tools for effective management of VidiCore installations without the need for VidiFlow and LDAP integration. For more information, please see Administration Interface .


Search Options

Disabling Initial Search

By default, MediaPortal is configured to initiate an initial search upon launch, providing an overview of existing content with news objects displayed prominently. However, if necessary, this search functionality can be deactivated. In this mode, the application will display all its functions without automatically conducting the initial search. Users retain the ability to manually trigger the initial search as needed.

Note: This will also overwrite set Default Searches, requiring the user to run this manually. For more information, please seeSearch Settings .

Utilizing Representative Thumbnails

In certain scenarios dictated by usage patterns and workflow configurations, an item within MediaPortal may be assigned a "Representative Thumbnail." In such cases, the MediaPortal will exclusively load this designated thumbnail when generating result views, streamlining the display process. For more information, please see Search Settings .

Loading Filter Cards Upon Request

By default, MediaPortal's Filter section is programmed to execute an initial request to load potential values from the filter cards. However, depending on the range of values present in specific fields, it may be advisable to load these values individually upon user interaction, such as clicking on a field within the filters. This approach ensures a more responsive and efficient filtering experience, particularly in cases where the variance of values necessitates a more tailored loading mechanism.

Referencing Multiple Items per Workflow

An additional function enables the referencing of multiple items within a single Workflow instance. This feature can be configured on a per-workflow basis, providing flexibility in behavior differentiation, such as distinguishing between Dropzone actions and multiple selections from the result view. In practice, a single workflow instance will contain an array of referenced items within the Workflow Document Json.

Note: When multiple objects are passed, existing VidiFlow workflows may require adjustment to iterate over the referenced IDs. This ensures compatibility and proper handling of multiple referenced items within the workflow structure. For more information, please see Filters .

Magic Wand Function on Drop Zone

The Magic Wand Function in MediaPortal automates new sequence creation based on content added to the drop zone, ensuring frame rate consistency. If the frame rates match, the sequence is created seamlessly. Otherwise, a dialog message notifies users of the discrepancy, preventing sequence creation and allowing adjustments. For more information, please see Magic Wand .
