Searched a couple of pages back, and done a bit of googling. I need a way to stream music from my NAS to my imac, preferably using UPNP. VLC seems to have some issues with browsing big UPNP shares, what are my other options?

Any dlna client will throw a hiss fit when dealing with more than a couple hundred files over a dlna folder, qnap nas will let you browse the media folders one by one rather than a single big repository but i guess other brands let you do the same.

Why UPNP? Hosting your music library as a share and mounting it on the Mac is gonna be way easier.
(Do any NAS offer iTunes Home Sharing?)

I always found upnp/dlna stuff super janky, never found any nice clients.

I recently moved to plex for my music library and it works pretty nice. there are a few different clients for heaps of platforms. Plexamp is a minimal one for macOS. Bulk metadata editing in the interface is still way clunkier than a native app, even iTunes, but I get by

You guys are right, I was just being lazy in setting up shares. So assuming I have everything on a network share (which unfortunately canít run Plex server), whatís my best option? I tried Quod Libet and it seems OK, if a little unpolished.

Is it the case for anybody else that if you send a URL in iMessage (/Messages), it will appear in the preview pane under the chat partner, but it never actually appears in the conversation itself?

Trying to share links with my elderly parents and having to explain to them that this appears to be an incomprehensible bug is all kinds of WTF

A while back I asked about how to stop the music app from auto launching when connecting to my bluetooth receiver. It was driving me nuts - before the last update I was able to remove it after disabling SIP, but now the icon still pops up on the dock (clicking on it does nothing of course)

well I finally found something that works!

On Microsoft teams youíre supposed to be able to share a PowerPoint directly (not as a window) that lets participants scrub back and forth while youíre talking. It also lets you see the presenter notes and participant videos.

But that option doesnít show up on teams on my Mac- does anyone know if itís gated to windows?

Hey does anybody use iCloud Mail via the webmail portal? Long shot as I know nobody would do this who doesn't have to, but my daily driver is a work laptop and they forbid Mail.app.

Lately (like for the last ~2 months) it has just been absolutely unusable. Refreshing messages, you click the refresh button, nothing happens for up to a minute and then finally 10+ or however many new messages finally appear in the list. Then you click on one and you invariably (almost immediately) get this:



I have to keep dismissing dialogs and clicking back and forth between one message and the next five or six time before finally one will load and not error out.

I thought this might be a new Safari bug but it happens in Chrome too.

I have even seen these timeouts happening (less frequently though) on iOS Mail. So I feel like this is a systemic iCloud Mail problem. But of course their status page indicates full steam ahead, all green, no issues cap'n.

Anyone else having trouble like this? It seems ludicrous that it can be only me (and across multiple platforms), but it seems even more ludicrous that they can be having problems like this systemwide and nobody is talking about it ...

Same thing's been happening to me on my PC (and work computer), and it's been driving me somewhat batty. Nothing seems to have helped other than just using my phone to check my email. I don't think I want to go back to Gmail over this just yet, but we'll see I guess. Probably should figure out how to submit a bug report on it though.

I am looking for a video editing software to put together my vacation photos and videos into one file, anybody have suggestions?

Some things I would like:
1) easy to learn and use. I am not a filmmaker or anything it doesn't have to look polished
2) some level of control over editing, including stitching together videos/splitting a video into 2 separate scenes
3) add text to the video, that can move around as the video continues (for example follow my friend as he moves around)
4) can edit sound, including music (Fade in/out) or add narration

I am open to paying a small fee (ideally non-subscription) if needed

Hmm I played around with it a little while but thought it was a little crude? For example I wasnt able to see (maybe I didnt look hard enough) how to add text, just "titles" which you cannot move around the text in the video (or even reposition), and you have to drag the time clip instead of being able to specifically type in the time(e.g. 1:05). Not to mention if you cannot overlap the titles and God forbid if you insert a new title and that one overlaps with the previous titles it will push back the time, making you retime everything again

The 2015-ish MBP I've inherited from the wife has taken to turning off its screen and appearing to go to sleep when the screen angle is adjusted or occasionally just seemingly at random. The laptop becomes unresponsive and can only be revived by closing the lid almost all the way. Is this a known issue? Googling the terms is a bit of a mess.

That definitely sounds like a loose monitor cable inside the laptop. I'm not sure how hard that is to reconnect or replace in a mac. You should probably ask again in the mac hardware thread

Loose monitor cable wouldn't cause it to go to sleep. I recall someone else having a similar issue in this thread and it was related to the magnet sensor that detects if the lid is closed going wonky. Not sure how they fixed it though.

Hey all, I have been playing around with Catalina in a VM on my UnRaid server and things are humming along just fine. It's very nice to be able to use iMessage on my Desktop during the work day. One strange thing, which I THINK is a macOS issue and not because I'm in a VM, in iMessage when someone posts a GIF (could be from #images, not sure) they all come over as a ? in a box. If I do a quick-look or Open on it, it opens in preview although not animated so the graphic data is coming through.

Any thoughts? Googling wasn't very helpful as it has solutions for Emoji, but the Emoji are coming through just fine.

Thanks!

GIFs typically show without issue in Messages.app, although I don't know what "#images" refers to here.

My guess is that graphics acceleration may not be available in a VM and that might be required for Messages to show GIFs

Ahhh that's a good thing to check. I'll look into that! Logical

#images is the app on iOS that people often search for images/gifs and paste them into the chat. I suspect that is where some of my friends are posting them from, although the source is likely irrelevant.

So, scrap that VM plan. I completely forgot that my wife has a 2012 iMac that I can use concurrently provided I VNC in using the built in Screen Sharing.

Problem is, I can't copy/paste to/from the iMac from Windows 10 using RealVNC VNC Viewer.

I tried setting up VNC Server and Splashtop on it, but it controls the whole PC and doesn't allow concurrent users (I remoting in the background and not disturbing her use at the keyboard/mouse). The C/P works just fine in those situations.

Anyone have experience with this? Is there something I'm missing here to enable clipboard sharing over VNC between Mac and Windows? Is there a better Windows client that will work? Seems like it's a macOS limitation, but I could be wrong.
