Re: Problem about MKV playback issue on PS4

You have to use the "No Transcoding" option in the Transcoding folder. Keep in mind that PS3 doesn't support MKV files with embedded DTS audio and subtitle files. My PS4 wouldn't let UMS transcode through Mencoder or FFmpeg either. I asked for support on this issue a few days ago but it seems rather...

Re: [solved]PS4 won't let UMS transcode

I wonder if Plex would be a good alternative for playing MKV with a DTS container.

Re: PS4 won't let UMS transcode

Still no result. I also had encoded audio passthrough for AC-3 and DTS checked but that didn't work for me either.

I also don't know what you mean by the CC for subtitles. Can you specify which setting this is?

Re: PS4 won't let UMS transcode

DTS en AC3 were both checked in UMS when I did the test with the TRACE-log.

I'll test the subtitle settings later this day.

Re: PS4 won't let UMS transcode

I tried to make a log file of one of the issues I'm having. As you may see I've tried to open the video file (with DTS sound) through Mencoder, which failed, and then with FFmpeg. Both failed. Then I tried it without transcoding by selecting the "No Transcoding" option which worked. On my previous P...

Re: having problems with Java

I'm a bit confused. I can get OS Lion for free or I'm just able to do it because my Mac meets the system requirements?

There seem to be a lot of Java versions with different names (Oracle, Environment, SE, EE,...). How do I know which one is good enough for UMS?

Re: having problems with Java

Ok, I'll do some testing.

Some info I got from Terminal:

java version "1.6.0_17"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04-248)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.3-b01-101, mixed mode)

Thanks for all the help so far.

Cheers!

Re: having problems with Java

I reformatted my OS and UMS 5.3.2 is working again. I updated to OS 10.6.8 but I'm still not sure if I should try to mess with Pacifist again. I wouldn't want to format my mac again if Java gets corrupted again.
