Re: UMS 10.0.0: Windows protected your PC

I think this depends on the version of windows you are using. I use Win 10 Pro and never had any prompts, however trying UMS on my dads laptop with Win 10 home I got a similar message saying that it was not downloaded from the Microsoft store. I'm sure I have read about one version (LSC something?) ...

Log viewer

Just curious if anyone uses a log viewer program. I was using Notepad++ for a while but thought there must be an easier way I've found LogViewPlus and has made looking at the debug logs a lot easier. I have set up a few filters and highlights for common problems so I can easily jump to the relevant ...

Re: PS4 disconnecting every 20 minutes

I think that there is something in the data stream that is causing the player to fail and is not unique to the PS4. I can't find the thread (may have been on GIT) but there was another TV that was prematurely stopping after a certain time (an LG I think?) I have been having similar issues with Movia...

Re: file numbering option

Some devices don't display the files in the order they are are received and instead sort them alphabetically themselves. One situation I can think of is when ignoring "a" and "the" in sorting the file order, this will get ignored. The PrependTrackNumbers option solved this for mp3s so something simi...

Re: Error after updating.

I think it was using the #2 controller the first time, maybe it should be the first one? Don't know anything about your hardware but maybe you have 2 Ethernet ports?

If there are still conflicts with your VPN just try other interfaces till UMS can see your devices.

Re: Error after updating.

you selected your VPN interface net.pms.network.HTTPServer Using address /10.122.2.230 found on network interface: name:eth6 (ExpressVPN TAP Adapter) Select your physical interface, probably "Killer E2200 Gigabit Ethernet Controller" As for what Valib says the total length of the path is too long fo...

Re: Error after updating.

It looks like you have a VPN which sometimes can confuse UMS to what network to use, usually after an update that changes the order of the network interfaces.

Try changing "Force networking on interface" in the general settings tab and manually select your physical adapter.

Re: Mencoder Engine not loaded

I'm sure the issue is with apple no longer allowing certain programs running on their newest OS.
IIRC Mencoder is currently a 32 bit only program and these are being disallowed.

I think I have seen a better explanation on this forum somewhere but I believe that was the reason.

Re: UMS does not appear on my Samsung Q60.

Try checking to see if UMS is using the correct network interface. I don't know anything about macs but your UMS is using "en1" which I'm assuming is your wired connection to the external network. If wifi is your local network then that is what UMS should use. Go to the "network settings (advanced)"...

Re: Streaming to LG OLED CX (2020): no seeking when transcoding?

before I left to go home I did a final test to confirm my suspicion. The way that the TV was requesting data is causing UMS to transcode so the TV can generate an animated thumbnail of whatever the cursor is pointed at. here I never selected anything to play, just opened a directory, went to the tra...
