The 7.0.0 version adds new features to dynamically sort your media, most notably there are new "TV Shows" and "Movies" folders that are populated automatically with content from your shared folders.

Your feedback on this pre-release will be valuable, so let us know how it is working for you!

Note: This is a beta version, which means the feature list is complete but it is likely there are still bugs. Use at your own risk.
Note: It is recommended you take a backup of your profile directory before installing this, as the changes to the fully played data are not reversible. The location of your profile directory are near the top of the "Logs" tab in the program.



Note: These unstable releases are for versions of Java from 7 upwards, but we will continue to release all stable versions in Java 7 and 8 variations.

Changes since 7.0.0-a1:

  • General:
    • Added "Unwatched" folder to the videos folder if "Hide fully played media" is not enabled
    • File addition/removal is handled specifically instead of doing a library scan
    • Optimized database storage
    • Reduced memory use
    • Fixed the setting to hide fully played media in the Media Library
    • Fixed sorting in Media Library virtual folders
    • Fixed thread-safety/concurrency bugs
    • All changes in 6.5.3 and 6.6.0
    • Improved logging
  • Languages:
    • Synchronized translations with Crowdin
  • Renderers:
    • Improved support for Samsung 9 series TVs
    • Improved detection of Panasonic ST60 TVs
    • Improved detection of Samsung JU6400 TVs
  • Dependencies:
    • Updated external-maven-plugin to 0.2
    • Updated FFmpeg to the latest builds

No default renderer is shown on "default renderer when automatic detection fails". Actually worked once after first install but after PC restart has failed.

FFmpeg and subtitles no longer works in that FFmpeg is not able to fill the buffer, and the PS3 throws an error. I think this may be due to FFmpeg as I had put in a new FFmpeg into the 6.6.0 build before and had the same issue.

Please, could you try to add this line in your PS3 renderer conf. and report if it had solved this issue ?

Code: Select all

RemoveTagsFromSRTSubtitles = false

I guess that when you say subtitles you mean text subtitles, SRT only ? or ASS/SSA as well ? External and/or internal ?

When I say subtitles, I mean all subtitles, .ass or .srt, internal or external. I've tired it on the following files, all have failed. Adding that line to the PS3 conf files does not correct it.

mp4 with external .ass or .srt
mkv with external .ass or .srt
mkv with internal .ass (anime)
mkv with internal text subs (I assume .srt as they are rendered like external .srt on the PC)
mkv with vobsubs play but without the subs

Force transcoding via FFmpeg without the subs does play the file in all above cases.

I did noticed that, when it fails, I don't get the subtitle icon bug, so it's as if it can't load or get the subtitle's language, as with prior versions playing a file with subtitles, even for 1 sec, will change the white arrow icon to the subtitle language's icon if thumbnails are off.

Thank you for you feedback 8-)

If you can get a recent FFmpeg build to work correctly with subtitles, please don't forget to share ;)

I could be wrong, but i suspect that this one could work: ...

I have 64-bit so I used the 64 bit statics. The last one that works is ffmpeg-20161006-0212867-win64-static. The next one fails, as does the 3.x.x statics.

Hello erick diangilis,

Thank you for your feedback :)

Could you test this new PS4 renderer and tell us if external SRT subtitles are displayed correctly ? ... tion4.conf

You should be able to stream 10-bit videos without transcoding as well (on PS4 Pro at least).
For adding the 4K possibility you'll need to add these 2 lines into this renderer:

Code: Select all

MaxVideoWidth = 3840
MaxVideoHeight = 2160
