This BETA requires Subsonic server 4.7 beta 3 or later for access to new features.

What is new:
* Support for HLS video playback (subsonic 4.7 b3 or later), single or multi-bitrate playback (adaptive streaming). Should handle video files of almost any format (as long as FFMpeg can transcode them).

* Handles older Subsonic server versions by disabling extra features and Advanced Configuration menu.

* simple screensaver built in
* advanced settings screen: enable/disable screensaver, enable / disable HLS video playback, multibitrate HLS, and pick from three different bandwidth adaptations
* cancel out of auto-find server dialog
* a few crash-bugs squashed
* If there are multiple videos in a folder, it should try to play them all sequentially
* uses content length estimation API call, should reduce or eliminate glitchy playback of transcoded audio files.

Support for SubsonicTV is of course on the SubsonicTV forum:

This BETA of SubsonicTV will cease to function or be converted to the "Lite" version as soon as the release version is published to the Roku Channel Store.
