Version 4.2.1 is released

Postby SubJunk » Sat Nov 01, 2014 9:09 am

General:

You can download it from the front page.

This release adds and improves support for many renderers, increases transcoding speed, improves file support and more!

Upgrade note for Linux users: We have renamed many of the renderer configuration files so we recommend clearing the "renderers" folder before updating to this version.


Changes since 4.2.0:

  • General:
    • Increased speed of FFmpeg transcoding to H.264
    • Updated UMS.conf
    • Improved filename prettifying
    • Re-added "Force default renderer" option to the GUI
    • Minor GUI fixes and improvements
    • Fontconfig caches are not generated if subtitles are disabled
    • Renamed most renderer config files
    • Fixed special characters in folder names not displaying correctly
  • Renderers:
    • Added support for LG WebOS TVs
    • Added support for Panasonic SC-BTT Blu-ray Disc Home Theater Sound Systems
    • Added support for Samsung ES8000 TVs
    • Added support for Samsung F5900 Blu-ray Disc players
    • Added support for Technisat S1+
    • Improved detection of Windows Media Player
    • Improved support for H.264 videos on some renderers
    • Improved support for Cambridge Audio Azur BD players
    • Improved support for Samsung WiseLink renderers
    • Improved support for subtitles on Sony Bravia EX TVs (thanks, master-nevi!)
    • Improved support for Panasonic TVs
    • Improved support for Xbox One
    • Fixed seeking on Samsung E+ Series TVs
  • Languages:
    • Updated French translation (thanks, Kirvx!)
  • External Components:
    • Updated MPlayer/MEncoder for Windows to SB60, which:
      • Improves H.264 transcoding
      • Improves H.265 support
      • Improves support for many containers and codecs
      • Fixes bugs

Hey !

I've a Yamaha Receiver RXV-2065, and it shows up in UMS as Philips Aurea TV.

Is it fixable to get the right equipment showing up ?

Regards and keep the good work ! I'm using your software for almost 3 years !

hi,
This version plays well with ext-sub on iPad using MEncoder. However, Vietnamese subtitles cannot be played correctly (Vietnamese characters are shown as square box), I guess it could be some settings about font encode or something else. this is a sample subtitle for reference. Please help by showing me how to config correctly

In 5.0.0-a1 we have added new ways of identifying renderers, so please give us logs from that version so we can do that for you :)

Sorry but I think you'll have to wait until the next 5.0.0 release, since we added a new detection method in 5.0.0 that isn't in version 4. We will hopefully do our next 5.0.0 release soon!
