Version 6.7.4 released

Post by SubJunk » Tue Oct 03, 2017 6:48 pm

General:

You can download it from the front page.

It fixes many bugs and improves support for devices.


Changes since 6.7.3:
  • General:
    • Fixed a bug where thumbnails wouldn't always be generated when MediaInfo isn't used or available
    • Fixed regression in folder thumbnails on non-Windows platforms
    • Fixed a crash when the web interface's port is occupied, and do not fail restarting the server, if the server hasn't created yet (thanks, Zsombor Gegesy!)
    • Fixed many general bugs
  • Renderers:
    • Added support for HE-AAC audio in MKV and MP4 files on LG BP550
    • Improved detection and file support for LG WebOS TVs

Compatibility notes:

These releases work on all versions of Java 7 onwards.
The Windows releases work on Windows Vista onwards. We are working on supporting older versions.

I'm on 7.0.0-rc1, and it's working fine for me. Is there any major benefits to 6.7.4 over rc1, or am I gaining benefits of the 7.0.x series already?

Hi, thanks a lot for your great work!
FYI, I just installed 6.7.4 but it doesn't start, I'm using a Windows 7 64bits; so I went back to 6.7.3.

Regards,
Kristy

Thanks for the new version. Working fine so far.


Out of curiosity, when will you switch completely to the 7.0 branch?
Regards,
Jens

i've tested out on the ps4 media player it's working fine and has no problem with higher than 1080p resolution vídeos like i encoutered testing other builds from previous dates that i got looking into the forums. i think the ideal is to get the most lastest version cause is based on the recent master than the previous one it has all the fixes and updates from the older version and the lastest fixes and upgrades even if the number is lower on the versions.


thanks for this new ums keep up with the good work and god bless. ;)

Hi guys,
We had some users notice issues with large libraries in 7.0.0 so that's why we are still on 6.x. Hopefully we can switch fully soon :) Thanks for waiting

Thanks for the info. I was one of the users with this problem, but it was much better with the rc1.

Ok, folder sort problem is there in 6.7.4 too:
viewtopic.php?p=32794#p32794

What I tested:
- I set folder sort to ABC and push Restart button.
- I switch my TV to UMS and sort no changed
- Restarted UMS server with Exit and start again
- Switch TV to UMS and sort is ok.

Restart button (or anything) not working correctly after change folder sort. Cache clear not helped. Restart button worked under 6.7.2 version.
