Thank You UMS Developers

Post by rh1234 » Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:56 am

Just a quick observation. I was using Windows Media Player as my media server. Not hard to setup and worked sufficiently. What I didn't like was the lack of configuration choices.

Then, I installed VLC after reading the many great reviews of it. Holy smokes, one full day later, and after many many many configuration changes I STILL could not get the VLC ms to appear on my Sony Blue Ray! I finally gave up and searched for something else. Now, I don't mean to disparage VLC because obviously many people like it, so my problems may have been due to my lack of experience with media servers. But why??? It was so simple with Windows Media Player...

So then I came upon Universal Media Server. Installed, basic configuration in 5 minutes, and after 15 minutes I was able to see the media server on my Sony and select and view my videos. Give or take another hour to really sort through the MANY configuration options, and everything's good as gold. And easy!!!

Anyway, just some kudos to the folks who developed Universal Media Server. Thank you.

Thanks from here to. UMS is simple to customise. And it works great with my Samsung TV, iMac and Playstation 3. Little tweak for Samsung was needed but now everything works great.
