Re: plex vs ums

I don't think there's a good answer to that. UMS does some things better than Plex, Plex does other things better than UMS. Both also does things that the other doesn't. It depends completely on what you need/want. To me, it's essential whether something is open source or not. Any software that's no...

Re: Massive desktop stutter when UMS is doing nothing but idling

I don't remember all the sabotage Microsoft has done to the "home" editions, but I know it's a lot - and it's not always documented. The thing is that these "editions" are all fake, the reality is that the "pro" version is what was previously known just as Windows. The "home" editions run on the sam...

Re: Massive desktop stutter when UMS is doing nothing but idling

It certainly isn't your hardware :D A very nice, and expensive, setup - but why would you run a crippled "home edition" of Windows on such a rig? Anyway, to the point, this is clearly a bug with UMS. I'm not sure what exactly, but there are many potential issues that could "hold control" over the sc...

Re: UMS access across routed subnets

I don't know FortiGate - I've primarily used CheckPoint FW-1/NGFW and pfSense. I don't think I've every used a layer 3 switch, I've always routed layer 3 through a trunk port, but then again I haven't really worked with networking for many years now. I don't quite remember how the multicast routing ...

Re: UMS access across routed subnets

The short answer is "no". This problem isn't really with UMS, but with UPnP. Communication between UMS and renderers takes place on "two levels": UDP uni and multicast for discovery and other information exchange, and HTTP (TCP) for requests and playback. The HTTP part obviously have no issues with ...

Re: Error when trying to play movie on Samsung SmartTV UE75KS8005

I'm no longer a part of the UMS team, so I expect one of those that are to look into the details. That said, AAC isn't really a "codec" in the traditional sense, you should rather think of it as a "family of codecs" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Audio_Coding). AAC is a complete mess of man...

Re: Customizing the media library hierarchy

I'm not sure what programming skills you refer to, but if you meant that you don't know how to build it, there are a link to downloads in the bottom of the readme: https://sourceforge.net/projects/ums-mlx/

Re: Customizing the media library hierarchy

No. There is a fork of UMS that allows this, but I don't think it has been updated for almost 2 years: https://github.com/taconaut/ums-mlx

Re: PS4 Not Deteccting Any Longer

I looked in your log and can't see any signs of any communication from other devices. Since you have tested with the firewall off, there must be something with your network. It seems that UMS binds to a Wifi NIC using 192.168.11.0/24. I don't know if that is correct or not, but you should made sure ...

Re: File size missing LG49SK8500PLA

There are many details that determine if a file has to be transcoded or not. The codecs, codec profile and levels are examples of things that can play a role. Subtitles are another issue, only relatively few renderers support subtitles which means that the files often have to be transcoded to have t...
