Today i am announcing the the release of My Rise Player 5.0. It will start updating in a few hours. This release is a major release in that there was a lot of changes to the app internally. As far as the changes go here are some of the things we did. 

1. Chrome edition is now added as a choice in the app. We combined the two apps so that you can test both device webview and chrome webview. The new setting will auto select the device webview so that should be correct. 

2. Display Information has been changed. It will display everything correctly. I even allowed it to show the IP address of the device in the beta display section.

3. Moved app from eclipse to Android Studio. Not a big move but found lots of things that needed to be changed. 

4. Moved server cache and the servers. Had to be done and they now startup at the beginning. We had them starting up when the presentation loaded but we had to move them in case of webview switching. 

5. Cleaned code. We did lots of cleaning to get everything looking nice. 

6.) Chrome webview version is v45. 

Now as far as the chrome edition app. This will not come to that app. We are requiring everyone to move to the original My Rise Player app since it has the chrome edition added in. There wasn't many on that app but the ones that are need to switch over. We will be un-publishing that app next week. It will still run on devices but you want be able to find the chrome edition app in the store. 

The Google TV app will be next to update. We hope to have this updated next week as well.

The Amazon tv app is also going to get an update but we are waiting on Amazon to update the OS on Gen 1 devices. Those using Gen1 devices will be required to update to the new OS. The main reason is video. We are moving from amazon webview to the device webview when the update arrives. Video will stop working on the older OS because of this change. 

Anyway if there are issues please let us know. There were a lot of changes and we tried to test everything. If you see something not working please let us know. Thanks.

Google tends to be slow on updating there servers so it might be a day before everyone starts seeing the update. I think they update by region so be patient.

I have added a new update to the store. Which is 5.1 We found an issue with some android devices throwing cookie errors from rise. We determined the issue was with our target sdk. We were using 19 but when updating to 5.0 we went with 23. Well we now reverted back to 19 and seemed to fix this error. Dont understand why the error caused the issue but it must be with that sdk. Hopefully this fixes some issues people were having. Thanks
