Re: UMS has a problem handling Dolby Vision video tracks

The "hate" is simply that I can't stand companies that don't want to sell an actual product, but instead tries force everybody to pay them when they pay for other products. It's not like adding more colors to video is rocket science, all it takes is for everybody to agree how to store the informatio...

Re: UMS has a problem handling Dolby Vision video tracks

dlb_mp4base doesn't seem very useful to me, since it can only handle Dolby streams. I hope people will finally abandon Dolby since it's "business strategy" is to make patented formats, manipulate companies to think they need to support it and then just sit back and watch the money pile up. It's abou...

Re: No Media Content

You must make sure that the media folder on your desktop is specified as a shared folder in UMS, and then restart the application. If it still doesn't show up on the renderers then, follow the red text above and post debug files.

Re: UMS not seeing xbox/ps4 and their not seeing UMS!

There must be some misunderstanding here. The issue is pretty clear, it won't work unless your router lets the traffic through. This means that you can: Move UMS to be on the wireless network, get another router or live without a media server. Edit: If what you mean to say when listing "laptop" is t...

It seems like the spambots prefer to talk to eachother..? Maybe they "understand" each other better :D

why does each UMS server detect the other UMS as a renderer?
It's a bit complicated, but it comes down to a flawed logic for what is considered a renderer. UMS will list anything that contacts it in response to it's UPnP announcements as a renderer, without actually evaluating if it is one.

Re: How do I connect to the server on another mac?

Regarding VLC, UMS is supposed to show under UPnP in the sidebar. VLC have several issues with its implementation though, and they vary a lot with the different versions. From my experience, you need to be on a 3.x version for it to work at all. Even within VLC 3.x there are variations/bugs. I don't...

Re: How do I connect to the server on another mac?

UMS is only a server, it doesn't render/display/play content. To do that, you need a UPnP AV/DLNA player. While many hardware devices supports UPnP AV/DLNA, support in software is somewhat lacking. There are options, but none that really has a complete, solid implementation that I'm aware of. The tw...

Re: Two instance of UMS on PS4 not showing at same time

My guess is that you use the same UUID in both UMS.conf files. The UUIDs are supposed to be unique, and if you remove it from one of the configuration files and start UMS, a new one will be generated. If both instances use the same UUID, your renderers will get confused when "finding" the same devic...

Re: UMS not seeing xbox/ps4 and their not seeing UMS!

It doesn't matter if you "put" the previous router in "bridge" mode or not, what matters is how it behaved. Maybe your old router was in "bridge" mode by default. The only thing that matters is that it forwards multicast packets between the wired and the wireless networks. If it does, this works - i...
