Re: update not working on Mojave

This isn't a problem with UMS, it's Apple blocking applications without "their" signature.

Re: Big Bug in Playing video

It might just be me that's slow, but I don't understand anything of what you're writing. Are you using an automatic translation service to translate it from another language into English?

Re: Charset problem in folder names in UMS.conf [SOLVED]

"A lot" isn't very specific, but in UMS' case we're talking making changes to how Apach Configuration works. I've actually done this to make it accept UTF-8 (and to make it understand double-quotes whose where what's enclosed in double-quotes don't need to be escaped and isn't trimmed etc). I consid...

Re: Charset problem in folder names in UMS.conf [SOLVED]

This isn't a bug, although one could argue it should be. It comes with Java and has been like this "since the beginning of time". They chose the standard encoding for the properties files before UTF-8 was "the de facto standard", and because of backwards compatibility they have never changed it. So,...

Re: UMS.conf “folders”… not working ? [SOLVED]

Yes, sort of. It's supposed to support Latin-1, which I think should include é, but assuming ASCII is absolutely safest.

Re: UMS.conf “folders”… not working ?

The configuration file is in "Java properties" format - which is encoded with Latin 1. To use "non-standard" characters, you must encode them with "\uxxxx" where "xxxx" is the hexadecimal unicode code point for the character. This means that you'd have to write: /srv/vid\u00e9o ..because 00e9 is the...

Re: UMS.conf “folders”… not working ?

Another common cause is that you're not editing the config file in use. The location of the "active" configuration file can be found relatively early in the log.

Re: UMS.conf “folders”… not working ?

It could be many things, but there's something called "folders_monitored" too AFAICR which might interfere. BUt, one tip is to stop UMS before editing the config file, because UMS might overwrite your changes otherwise.

Whitespace doesn't matter, it will be trimmed anyway.

Re: 2 Audio files language 'eng' but the default track flag is ignored

I don't quite see how that would make any difference. Often videos come with a "main"/"default" track in DTS or AC3, and then a "secondary" track in AAC or MP3. If the renderer can't play the "main" track, it's better to play the existing one in a supported codec than to transcode the surround track...

Re: LG tv can't play files unless transcode 'no transcoding' selected!

Never use notepad as an editor, it is utterly flawed. Use one that doesn't ruin files, like Notepad++.
