Average Bitrate and a Seperate Question

Post by Madoka » Thu Nov 06, 2014 6:11 am

As the front tab has current and peak bitrate, I was wondering if it would be difficult to add another value for average bitrate there for the current video being played?

Also, I know that if you use FFmpeg and fontconfig, FFmpeg will make temporary subtitles in the subs directory which are deleted after 2 weeks. Is there a UMS config value I can set in UMS.conf to increase or decrease the time?

Thanks!

Sadly I didn't add a config option for that (I normally do that but this time it was probably at a time too many options). There is a way to increase the time to infinity. see here viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2401
Average bitrate per video could be done it is more a matter of real estate on the status tab and not cluttering in to much info.

I added a config option

Code: Select all

live_subtitles_timeout
which you can add to the UMS.conf. It's value should be number of days you which to keep the sub files. Minimum is 1 day. If you don't add it default to 14 days as always..

before i destroy the GUI (again) do you mean avg bitrate or current bitrate? Current bit rate could be displayed on a per render basis...

SH,

Thanks for all the replies and the new config option!

I was thinking Average Bitrate for the current file played. What usually happens is that right when the video starts, I get the Max Bitrate and then the Current Bitrate fluctuates depending on the scene. I thought it would be nice to know what the Average Bitrate of the show I was watching actually was. One thing is that I use only use one renderer. I was thinking that the Average Bitrate would reset when I played a new file, but it would stay displayed like Max Bitrate until then (so even if the file ended, the info would be there).

The best place is renderer.conf and ums.conf, you know :mrgreen:
You will avoid user's questions or total ignorance about those cool hidden settings spread in many forum posts, not on one place.
Mainly you will avoid my boring stupid questions 8-)

SH,

I see that the new conf option in the 5.0.0 branch, but it's not in the Master branch yet? I don't understand code so sorry for the newb 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 :)
