Re: recommendations for new renderer

Whatever you buy if you are intent on a Bluray player check the model has a renderer conf file first. Manufacturers have a habit of updating models yearly or more often just for updating sake.

Re: Aspect and Crop issues on ALL SONY and potentially other devices possibly finally solved????

OverrideFFmpegVideoFilter = pad=max(iw*1.01\\,ih*1.01*(16/9)):ow/(16/9):(ow-iw)/16:(oh-ih)/16, setdar=4/3 The altered "(ow-iw)/16:(oh-ih)/16" part of the above code allows older divx and xvid codec encoded videos to s...

Re: Aspect and Crop issues on ALL SONY and potentially other devices possibly finally solved????

Great post Paradox :) I'd just like to mention that there's no need to reinstall UMS if any of the renderer configuration files are "lost" or edited byond repair. The latest version of those that ship with UMS can always be found here: https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer/UniversalMediaServer/tr...

Re: Version 6.6.0 released

That code explains nothing, it is just a boolean that initiates the KeepAspectRatio function, it does not explain what exactly it is doing.

Re: Version 6.6.0 released

If a renderer conf file supports a file format the main listing will list the version with no transcoding, T...

Re: Version 6.6.0 released

KeepAspectRatioTranscoding is only used while transcoding. None of these options shouild be used if you didn't meet aspect ratio issue.
