Latest attempt is at http://www.spirton.com/uploads/UMS/UMS-60101a0.exe
Please try it and let me know how it goes :) Also when attaching logs, please make sure to change the log level to TRACE before starting the tests, otherwise there isn't enough info in the logs. Thanks :D

It looks like that video is being streamed directly to the PS4 so I guess the sync issues are a bug with PS4's media player

I've also tried serviio and Plex media servers, with same results :(
It seems the PS4 Media Server is a bad one and it will probably take months before they release a fix...
If you have an idea i'd be interested :)

Your file " Papa.ou.Maman.2015.FRENCH.DVDRip.XviD.avi" is streamed to PS4 without any stream modifications (no transcoding used) so problem is:
  • PS4 weak support of this type of file (does work same way when streamed or when played from USB)
  • PS4 weak support of DLNA implementation (file works ok from USB but not via any DLNA server)
  • UMS bug (file works correctly from another DLNA server)

I was reading the ps4.conf file, comparing it to what the plex guys are doing, and the ps3 ums conf, I think these two little changes are in order ?

# Supported video formats:
Supported = f:avi v:mp4|h264 a:aac|ac3|mp3 m:video/avi
Supported = f:mkv v:mp4|h264 a:aac|aac-he|ac3|mp3 m:video/x-matroska
Supported = f:mp4 v:mp4|h264 a:aac|ac3 m:video/mp4
Supported = f:mpegts v:mpeg2|h264 a:aac|ac3|mpa m:video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts

Good call. I downloaded some test MP4 files with mpeg4 inside, and no bueno.

I was working off what I had read off the Sony specs and the trial and error here:

This media player is starting to look like an interns project.
