2020 MMC on iOS

#1

Post by RyC » Sun Mar 15, 2020 10:34 pm

For previously registered users in 2019: The 2019 app has expired as of March 15, 2020. The app will either crash immediately when opened, or will not open with the message "my MC" Is No Longer Available. Simply go to https://setonsylvan.github.io on your device and tap the Download button. Watch the install progress on the home screen. It should install over the existing installation and leave your settings and data intact. If you receive "Unable to download app", re-send me your UDID, but existing users should still be registered.

Caution: this may be shut down or stop working at any time by Apple, Ceton, or (most likely) a future iOS update that makes the app incompatible in some way

For new users:

Requirements: An iPhone or iPad running iOS 8.0 or later.

What you need to do:
  • Find your device UDID. If you have a device released after late 2018, use a method on this link: https://deciphertools.com/blog/2014_11_ ... hone_udid/
    If you have an earlier device, you can use the above link, or this website: https://betafamily.com/superudid
    If you leave the browser window open on your computer, it will automatically update with your UDID information after you complete the process on your device, so you can easily copy and paste it from your computer. It will install a "profile" on your device to read the UDID, but it will automatically remove itself afterwards.
    If you're not comfortable with this method, use the methods on the first link.
  • PM me the UDID and whether it's an iPhone or iPad. Please do not post it in this topic!
  • Visit the above website after I PM you that your device UDID has been registered (I'll PM you the link as well). Tapping the Install button if your UDID has not been registered will not download the app.
FYI: This is a manual process to update the IPA with UDIDs so it may take a few hours before I'm able to add your UDID. If your device UDID has not been registered yet, the link will not install the app!

FAQs:
  • The app will expire on March 15, 2021. The app will either crash immediately when opened, or will not open with the message "my MC" Is No Longer Available. At that time, if the app is still functional, everyone will have to re-download MMC from the website. It should install over the existing installation and leave your settings and data intact.
  • As long as your device UDID has already been registered, you can uninstall and re-install MMC from the link provided without having to re-register.
  • The UDID does not change when you update to new versions of iOS, or even when you do an Erase all Content and Settings. However, if you replace your device with a new one, you will need to re-register the new UDID.
  • This is entirely free, and you don't need to include any proof of purchase.
I'm excited that we're able to get this app back on iOS for another year (hopefully)!
Many thanks to Jacoats, DanITman, and bryankennedy2 who did the bulk of the work!

What version of MMC is this? I currently run 1.4.5. I just found that it crashes when I go to Television>>Gallery then click any show I have recorded. Just wondering if your version is more updated than mine.

It's 1.4.5, which IIRC was the last version released by Ceton. If it's crashing, there's a bug in the code (which unfortunately I can't fix since I don't have the code) or an issue on your phone.

Good to know it’s the same. Not really a big deal, I’ve never used it before anyway. Thanks!

Hi RyC, I sent a PM last week, but it is showing in my “outbox” folder rather than sent items. Did you get it? Or is it stuck there? I'd really like to get MMC 2020 installed on my device.

Thanks!

So I got a new phone, and decided to do the newfangled way to transfer all my data. Well, there was no warning that apps that no longer exist in the app store would not be migrated. So does anyone have the Media Browser IPA file they can send me so I can see if I can install it some way please?
This was the app that let you do just about everything except stream - I mainly want it to schedule recordings when I am away.

iOS 14 Notes

It looks like we get another reprieve with iOS 14, but it looks like there is one major caveat:

You will probably get this ""my MC" would like to find and connect to devices on your local network" message upon first run on iOS 14

You must tap "OK" for the app to be able to connect to your server.

However:
Hitting OK did not immediately work for me. The app continued to throw a "Unable to connect" error until I went to Settings->Privacy->Local Network and toggled "my MC" off and on again. I force quit the app just for good measure, and then it was able to connect again.

Calm down and take a deep breath. Sent private messages remain in the Outbox until the recipient logs into the forum. Then, the message moves to the Sent folder.
