As well as an updated Media Browser Server we have a new version of the Windows Phone 8 edition of Media Browser. The app has a pretty significant update with some interesting new features. The app now supports live TV from a Media Browser server so you can stream live TV to the app as well as schedule recordings and view TV series.
For Windows Phone 8.1 users there is a transparent live tile, a small change but it looks much better on a Windows Phone running 8.1. There is also localisation, background artist on the now playing music screen, video seeking when streaming video and many other changes.
– Video seeking when streaming video to the app
– “Play on” button moved to app bar
– Now Playing bar in the app for easier access (when listening to music only)
– Added the “Upcoming” section for TV Collections
– Added artist background image to now playing screen (music)
– Added support for Live TV (requires additional server configuration)
– Local trailer support
– Transparent tile option for WP8.1 users.
