Re: PS4 MKV File Problem.

The PS4 does not really support .ass subtitles. It will display them as simple text, ignoring all formatting and position codes. So if there is a lot of text on screen, you will get a mess of text at the bottom. The hard work of the subbers will be lost. The PS4 supports .srt subtitles as CC text.

UMS and Special Characters in Subtitles

This is not a bug per se, more like UMS chooses poorly(?) I have in the past left the non-unicode subtitles encoding detection to Auto-detect. However, I don't know what encoding it's using, but the auto detection will not display curly quotes, N or M dashes, or ellipses correctly. For example, it’s...

Re: PS4 function compared PS3

I have both a PS3 and PS4 and am a long time user of UMS. It's just that the PS4 media player sort of sucks compared to the PS3. Your issues are the exact same ones I have noticed. The PS4 used to suck so bad, that you couldn't rewind at all in the beginning. So for me, if I need subtitles (which I ...

Re: [Transcoding folders] Limiting options

@Nadahar

I see that 7.1.0 is out. Is there any advantage for me to upgrade? It doesn't seem like the subtitle changes are in this new release, and I don't know if I'll take advantage of the "Fixed AAC audio parsing via FFmpeg" fix.

Thanks.

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...
