    NEWA Release Build 1.25 Released 2012-04-10

    Here is an updated NEWA Build 1.25 that contains the HTML 5 compliant jPlayer for Audio and Video player as well the Flash based player Flowplayer for both Audio and Video and a VLC Plugin player (requires VLC installed on the client) for Video.

    EDIT (2012-04-14): *You must apply the files in the main 1.25 post in the NEWA support sub-channel after installing the release. *It corrects an issue with logging into NEWA for those using the CSS based screens. *Also included another patch file for a random delete of recordings on CSS Manage Recordings screen.

    The HTML 5 jPlayer and Flash based Flowplayer video players are restrictive on what they can play. The files listed within your videos library will be filtered based on what the players can play. The VLC plugin player can play just about anything you throw at it and uses the built in NPVR video file extension filter.

    I think the Flowplayer audio player provides the richest user experience as an audio player but the jPlayer HTML 5 player isn't bad either. I didn't include a shot of the jPlayer Audio player since posts are limited to 4 images per post.

    Give the release a try and let me know your thoughts or problems you may find or recommendations you may have in improving the overall experience. There has been some limited beta testing of the release.....but I suspect there may be some issues that arise as more people begin using the features. Post any found issues in the NEWA Support sub-forum.

    They all show as tabs in can turn off ones you don't like in the Config tab.
