Re: Cant fast forward Videos in UMS 9.3.1

UMS doesn't support transcoding to MP4. That said, the duration (in bytes, not seconds) would still be unknown so I don't quite see how it would solve anything. In short, seeking while transcoding works on some renderers but not on others. The fundamental problem is that some use byte-based position...

@mik_s I'm sure you meant: Select "No transcode".. (or "No transcoding", I don't remember).

Re: Cant fast forward Videos in UMS 9.3.1

There is some documentation in the "default renderer configuration" file: https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer/UniversalMediaServer/blob/master/src/main/external-resources/renderers/DefaultRenderer.conf In addition, you can look at other configurations found in the same folder - or search this fo...

Re: Cant fast forward Videos in UMS 9.3.1

You could convert all your source files to a format that is supported by the target renderer, but that kind of defeats much of the point of UMS. The idea is that UMS does this for you, on demand. If you're willing to convert all your files, that's certainly a possibility. That said, I doubt that a m...

Re: UMS configuration for different video file types and online video streaming

Attaching screenshots is of little use. If you follow the description in red on the top of this thread, you will generate the proper debug files. The file you posted was readable, but contained no information about the problem at hand. It did however contain a lot of warnings about some network prob...

Re: UMS configuration for different video file types and online video streaming

I don't think it has to do with buffering or size. If your network bandwidth is bad that could lead to problems, but in that case I would expect that playback would first start and then stop or lag/freeze. If it doesn't play at all, it's very likely caused by the wrong combination of formats/codec. ...

Re: Universal Media Server no aparece en mi TV Smart

Nobody can help since there's no actual information given. Debug files should be posted as described in red above. Posting must also be done in English if an answer is wanted. My impression is that most of us isn't English native speakers, but because we all natively speak different languages we nee...

Re: UMS configuration for different video file types and online video streaming

UMS only offers content in two ways: 1) Via UPnP AV/DLNA 2) Via the web interface in any browser. You can forget all about "screen sharing" and "mirroring" when it comes to UMS. The fundamental logic for such a media server is that is should merely serve. That means that it doesn't control playback,...

Re: Manual?

I don't think .htaccess will do anything for you here, as UMS use its own HTTP server implementation that does just what's needed for UPnP AV to function, so things like that aren't implemented. If you're thinking of web-interface access, it is possible to enable HTTP basic authentication - but this...

Re: "Can not play Audio" on Smart TV

There's no way to transcode to multichannel AAC in UMS as far as I know. When it comes to some manufacturers dropping DTS etc, it's all down to licensing. Dolby and DTS (and others) are quite greedy and requires hefty license fees for devices to be able to decode "their" codecs. As a consequence, it...
