Re: Could use some general ideas/advice: Transcoding barely works; untranscoded causes buffering

It sounds to me like you have several issues all acting together to make a complete mess. Looking in your log I see nothing obvious, except for the fact that your renderer keeps disconnecting while UMS is sending. That is usually caused by UMS not sending according to the renderer's expectations (it...

Re: Some files show a size of 0.00 GB, unplayable

p.p.s.: just downgraded to UMS 6.8.0, and everything seems to work again. Well, looks like the newest version is not compatible with me. What i still don't get, though: i upgraded over a week ago and for several days there were no problems at all... The newer versions aren't quite compatible with t...

Re: cant fast foreword or rewind

I'm sorry, I can't help you - I just wanted to explain why you can't seek to make it a bit less of a mystery. Handling this correctly is very complicated, and UMS' code has severe "limitations" in this regard. That said, I'm not sure it is possible how ever clever the logic might be to always make i...

Re: "Cannot play media" on PS4 after pausing or tracking

This is probably caused by bugs/shortcomings in UMS and isn't directly configurable. That said, there could be configuration options that impacts the bug unintentionally, but there's no "straight forward" way to remedy this. I doubt your old hardware is related, if that was the problem, you should g...

Re: cant fast foreword or rewind

It might be fixable, it depends. The reason you can't seek is that the file is being transcoded. If your TV can play the file form an external harddrive, chances are that it should not be.

Re: [Solved] Playback 4K in LG TV

@azraraktar Your setup looks correct for the file you posted, except that I'm not sure if DTS-HD MA will match "dtshd". To know for sure, one have to look in the log. Search for "Parsing results" and find the one that is for the file in question. If you use the cache (which you probably do), the par...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

@knifeyspooney That example was the the situation mik_s brought up. For you, the fix really is that they fix UMS. As far as I can tell, the "least bad" workaround for you to use in the meanwhile is to remove ac3 support in your PS4 configuration file. To do that, you should look at all the lines sta...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

Hehe, it isn't really that "black", but it's a lot to remember. I'd say that I use it "semi-frequently", so the things I use often I know without thinking. But, as soon as I move beyond my "comfort zone", I have to look up syntax/codes and test the expressions. I wrote a small regex tester back in.....

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

The bug isn't in MediaInfo, the bug is in UMS in that UMS' code hasn't been updated to match the changes made in MediaInfo. That said, you can already do "everything except" in the current system, since it uses regex. But, that would mean you'd have to learn some regex to use it ;) A simple "not con...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

It wouldn't be quite as easy as you seem to think, but it would absolutely be doable. I'm not sure there would be much benefit though, as it is now, everything that isn't "supported" is by definition "unsupported". It doesn't really matter if you define it "one way or the other". The reason this can...
