Well, I'm having an issue with your new build of FFmpeg. It's not showing subtitles in Jumpy. I'm having to use Infidel's workaround still (the update.jar). Is this due to him needing to update Jumpy or do you need to add his new code to UMS in a future build?

So was this version compiled with/for JRE7 or still JRE6?

JRE6. After researching and speaking with a Java representative, I concluded that there is no advantage to be had in compiling for Java 7 since they are both as secure as eachother. It is still recommended to use JRE 7 though since that does (in theory) offer better security than JRE 6.

@Tyestor: I should note though that as soon as there is any difference between them (when there is a release of JDK 7 that is not synchronised with JDK 6) we will switch to 7 :)

@uening: Thanks for the report, I hadn't realised it had compiled for 64-bit. I am in the process of compiling 32-bit binaries for Linux now.

@wolfgan: Thanks! :D

Thanks for the response. By the way, one of my most hated things about UMS is probably the UI (and the fact that I have to open and close UMS/restart my PS3 to get it to work sometimes. Oh and when closing UMS it sometimes leaves the javaw.exe process open so if you reopen UMS it won't detect any renderers until you close the old javaw.exe), is there any plans for a revamp?

Feel free to make a thread with suggestions on how to improve the UI :)
