Thanks. Great work on the media server.
MKV with subtitles fail to play on ffmpeg, when you go to transcode folder and use mencoder it works. Last working version for this was 6.3.0.
Defer to mencoder when transcoding a problematic subtitles is enabled.

The application menu on the Mac version still says "About PMS" instead of "About UMS".... Otherwise, great work, team!

in v6.5.1 (and possibly 6.5.0) i've been getting a few errors of the type

A serious error occurred during Universal Media Server initialization: Address already in use: bind

after shutting down ums (for whatever reason) without rebooting the computer and then loading ums from the shortcut.

n.b:i load ums from a batch file at win start that checks if ums settings file is ok. sometimes the file becomes corrupt and shrinks in size. i check the size and copy a backup if need be. But i digress, the bind error...

When this error happens, seems ums can't restart when i click the red restart button at top. it can only quit and load again.

then this error msg in the logs upon loading. And can't be unbound until a reboot of the machine. is there another way?

i have no idea how a network ip binding could stop a reload. weird.

that problem has existed for MANY versions now, a few years. On windows the javaw process will still be running and unable to be killed, holding onto the network port. It can also happen with the UMS admin interface and if that happens the GUI can't persist changes. You can change the port, restart and it should be fine - till it crashes and then a restart without reboot will have the same issue (plus another javaw process running, and this goes on and on till you reboot). I run a python script which checks for a free port within a range, sets the config file, then starts UMS - so it at least automates resetting the port. But it still dies so much it is useless and I mostly end up using the Apple TV.
