Problems when listing 500+ albums/tracks
I get an error message when an artist in my media library has more than 500 albums, or an album has more than 500 tracks. How do I fix this?
Centova Cast will display a warning message if you exceed this limit.
If you want to increase the limit, there are two undocumented options that you can use to do so:
/usr/local/centovacast/etc/centovacast.conf on your server and add these
at the end of the file. Then just change
500 to whatever number you feel is
If you (or your clients) are using Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome, you should easily be able to display several thousand items at a time. Please be aware that Internet Explorer may have problems (perhaps even crash) if you try to make it display significantly more than 500 tracks, particularly when using older versions of Internet Explorer. (In fact, IE 6 or earlier may even slow down substantially with just 400-500 tracks.)
