Since the new Version, Video transcoding (mkv) issnt working anymore. It seems the cause is ffmpeg64.exe.

The only thing by getting it working again is renaming ffmpeg.exe to ffmpeg64.exe! How can i use 64bit transcoding? And ofc i've a x64 OS. The log issnt showing anything useful.

Unable to view video files using a x360, brings up options for image browsing instead.

Initial testing confirms repeat problem with filesystem access, usually on first launch or after renderer off overnight with UMS running:
  • title "M*A*S*H (MASH\ 1970\ Blu-ray).mkv" not parsed
    "Not Supported File Format" reported for all titles
This is the same as the 5.0.1 release.

See Support forum for logs.

"\" is not acceptable char on Windows so I suppose it is hidden as UMS code can't handle with it (also in case you are on Linux)

This only fails on the 'first' launch. If I quit & relaunch, it parses fine!

I am on OSX - '\' works fine in a filename. My problem is with the colon ':' character. In a filename slash '\' is translated to a colon ':' internally since slash is the filename separator character. Hence there is no way to have a colon ':' in a filename. I'll try changing it to a semicolon ';' and see if no one notices.

thanx
