Re: PS4 disconnecting every 20 minutes

Ok I bought a PS4 to get this working, since everyone is ditching them for PS5s ;) Trying to reproduce it now Have you had any issues with pausing and resuming videos on your PS4? I've been using mine more often to watch h265 videos that have to be transcoded and most of the time if I pause I get a...

Re: Will PS5 support UMS at launch?

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think the PS5 has a user accessible web browser due to exploits in webkit that have been used to hack the PS3 and PS4.

Re: Dolby Vision problem on my LG OLED65CX6LA

I don't see anything being played in that log so don't know anything about that file. However, you saying that the file plays from USB but struggles to play without transcoding from UMS suggests that it could be a network speed problem, and playing that file could be maxing it out. I don't know what...

Re: Dolby Vision problem on my LG OLED65CX6LA

UMS is probably transcoding that file because it thinks your TV doesn't support that format (Some LG TVs don't support DTS any more for example) which can cause stuttering on 4k due to extra CPU power needed and available network bandwidth. It is also possible that some formats only play correctly o...

Re: PS5 and or Xbox Series X support

It depends on if they have a media player.

Not sure there is one on the PS5 yet but in theory it can use the same one as the PS4 if it is available to download from the store. I know nothing about the Xbox.

Re: Multiversal Media Server

It has come to our attention that Universal Media Server is being used in other universes within the multiverse, so in the interest of accuracy we have decided to rename the program to Multiversal Media Server. We are also investigating the possibility of inter-universal media serving, which is tri...

Re: Detect specific codec for format

Yeah it would be better to have better codec matching for audio formats, but I don't think there is much variety for that to be needed in the same way that it is needed for video. also it is impossible to predict which codecs will become popular in the future so old confs just match the file extensi...
