Re: Amazon Fire TV

Without any details here I do suspect it uses Bonjour/Zeroconf much like chromecast (thats no DLNA) but if you take a look into the 5.0 branch you'll see that we handle the chromecast in a special way now so the chromcasts are found "outside" the DLNA grid but they can still be managed from the GUI ...

Re: Channels Plugin

pen - just tried (over a remote connection from work to home) and I could at least see ABC. Try over the webGui and see what happens. Then do it on your tv and produce logs

Re: Average Bitrate and a Seperate Question

Madoka - Nope those are not "live subs" in the sense that they are converted by ffmpeg afterwards. They will use the default value of 2 weeks. I can have a look and see if we can apply the same tmo values.
Interesting as in "wow this looks cool" or as in "wtf dude!"?

Re: Playlist Creation Please!

Zet - I think I solved your problem. If your dongle can be controlled by UMS I've added a "auto start" feature. Simply make a folder (it has to be a physical folder) on your UMS server. Populate it with whatever you want to play on your TV. The to your UMS.conf add auto_upnp_play= rname:path_to_fold...

Re: UMS 5.0.0-a1 (Bugs)

I'm a bit curios. We could plug the NPE real simple (the function it occurs in could detect it and return null) but I wonder what happens after. I looked at the code and the calling function should be able to cope with a null reply but that would most likely be almost the same as the NPE (minus the ...

Re: Playlist Creation Please!

Zet - If you can build yourself try out my latest commit to 5.0. It does what you wan't (except auto starts on power on/off) AS LONG as your render supports DLNA/UPNP control mechanisms. Try it. You'll need 2 new configs: auto_upnp_continue = true and auto_upnp_playlist_all = true to make it work. Y...

Re: Playlist Creation Please!

Zet - The thing with DLNA/UPNP is that it is the render (=tv) that is in charge of playback. It is the render that will request media from the server. The server can't "push" media to the render. So the best and easiest thing would be to use a player on your dongle that auto continues. With all that...

Re: Playlist Creation Please!

What are you after? A way to create a playlist from the render? That would be a rather nasty interface (lot of clicking) but doable. I would rather recommend you to do this at the server. UMS supports m3u and pls playlists (http://www.ehow.com/how_5084943_create-mu-playlist.html or http://en.wikiped...

Re: Average Bitrate and a Seperate Question

I don't think I'll add this to master. To build 5.0 use the UMSBuilder (viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1179)

ExSport - I started a documentation work. But so you'll be happy :) Pls feel free to chip in :)
