Edit2: Wait, hold on. You just want to play files from one computer to anohter.. why are you using UMS for that. Just create a share to your other computer and watch the movies with your default mediaplayer (VLC, or something)
That's exactly what I was trying to imply.

Re: I'm not Tech Savy enough to post a Proper Report

I have 4 computers on my LAN, 2 hard wired to my router and two connected to the router over WiFi, and I play video files between any and all of them at any time, and it works great. No stuttering, hardware decoding (even h265 on one machine), perfect. Full fast forward and rewind capable, subtitles...

Re: Are soft-subtitle settings controlled by UMS or by the TV?

There were DIvX subs/files in the past, but I don't see them anymore. I used to use them to play subs on my PS3 before PS3MS first came out.

Re: Are soft-subtitle settings controlled by UMS or by the TV?

Ah, a little classic AKBingo! from 2011, when the OG Kami 7 were still around. If you're using .ass subs, and all the formatting and styling codes are displayed as text, it usually means that the TV is treating the streamed .ass subs as .srt subs. As such, the TV does not recognize .ass subs, but do...

Re: Subtitles in MKV with PS3

I also am a heavy subtitle user, although more with external subs and h264/mp4 files. On the PS3, UMS has to transcode the subtitles over, so you can't switch subtitles on the PS3 on the fly with the subtitles button. I am not a developer, but my understanding with the current UMS is that you cannot...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thanks for looking into the problem and your explanation. I agree that it'd be nice if subbers identified the language in their subtitles, but unfortunately I get "Unk." internal SSA subs in anime all the time. For the external ones, It's easy enough for me to add the language to the name. I really ...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Ok, this is interesting. So I added .en to the subtitles in the folder that I was testing, the ones with the -BOM files. I exited the folder and re-entered. After a rescan, the subtitles are recognized with the {Ext Subs} info tag. I had played the file with subs via the Transcode folder earlier in ...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thank you for the explanations. The advice on having the language name in the file name is very helpful. I didn't know that UMS would prioritize that over auto-detection. I do find the "newly added subs" issue interesting as UMS clearly recognized the new subs, having referenced them in the Transcod...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

Thank you for your replay and explanations. One main reason I mentioned the UTF-8-BOM subs is that I think Aegisub is one of the most popular external subtitle programs, and it automatically produces UTF-8-BOM encoded subs. It's not a setting you can change so I think most subbers won't even notice....

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

For what it's worth, the "Subtitle Icon bug when thumbnails are off" that I've mentioned before is gone with this build. I haven't tried the Live Subtitles option as I usually download my own, but I haven't noticed any new bugs so far.
