Re: Version 7.1.0 released

I have a couple of problems trying to run an earlier version. Since installing V7.1.0 I have updated mediainfo and libmediainfo to 18.03. To run earlier versions of UMS mediainfo and libmediainfo 0.7.79 is required. The packages are so old that they are no longer in the repository for my Gentoo Linu...

Re: Stuck on Splash screen

Or you can just delete the entire database folder. It will be rebuilt when UMS restarts.

Myself and at least one other user had the same problem when updating to UMS V7.1.0

Re: UMS won't open after new install.

Good you got it to work. The folders had to be deleted when moving from a previous version to version 7 as the version 7 database structure was different. It surprises me that the same would have to be done moving from version 7.0.1 to version 7.1.0 but I guess it does. When that happens I usually j...

Re: UMS won't open after new install.

I guess you are using windows. Most likely those folders will be in your user directory. EG: If your username is "fred" C:/users/fred/appdata/Local/ Or C:/users/fred/appdata/local/LocalLow/ Or C:/users/fred/appdata/Roaming/ When you go to C:/users/fred/ The folders under that are usually hidden so y...

Re: UMS won't open after new install.

Same happened to me on my Linux server when I installed V7.1.0.
After I installed it, UMS would crash before starting completely.
I deleted the "data" and "database" folders and then UMS started fine.
Those 2 folders will be rebuilt again upon starting UMS.

Re: Version 7.1.0 released

I tried V7.1.0 (Linux headless) and UMS won't start.
It gets java heap space errors and crashes before starting completely.

EDIT: I deleted the data and database folders and restarted and now UMS starts OK.

Re: Version 7.1.0 released

We are aware of the problem and it mostly seems to happen to people who play music a lot - probably because they go through lots of files since the duration is shorter, and because of album covers taking up memory. The problem was created in UMS v5 so you can use v4 if you want until we have done m...

Re: Version 7.1.0 released

Can you advise if there have been any changes to try and resolve the "Java Heap Space" memory issue. Thanks In a way there have been because now the Windows installer should set a bigger heap space by default. So the problem is still there but it will take longer to appear now for most Windows user...

Re: How can I find the name of a specific renderer?

Usually you can give your device a fixed IP address.
