Re: Version 9.6.2 released

Similar problems as last time:
Running 9.6.1. and didn't get an auto-update notice for 9.6.2
If I manually hit "check for updates" it doesn't find 9.6.2

Have to close and open UMS to get it to find the update.

Re: Version 9.6.1 released

Something is wrong with the auto-update, yesterday I was watching something and got a 2006 error, went to my pc to see what the error was and a pop-up was displayed prompting me to update to 9.6.0 - seems like this shouldn't interrupt playback (bug 1). 9.6.0 didn't have any release notes - seems lik...

Re: Problems playing MKVs with TSMuxer w/6 ch AC-3

OK now I'm officially confused. I installed older versions of PMS (1.53 and then 1.40) as a sanity check, and they now have the same issue with these files. So the other major change since I used to run PMS without problems is the OS (and drivers / jvm): 1) I used to run 32-bit Vista, I now run 64-b...

Re: Problems playing MKVs with TSMuxer w/6 ch AC-3

Has it happened with more than one MKV? Because I remember there were problems with that first GoT file and when it was released some people were asking for a repack but it never came, so I think in that case it's an unusual buggy file Yes I've seen it on a number of files, I have the same issue on...

Re: Make UMS a singleton / limit to a single instance

Why not just uninstall the service and have it run normally? You can make it startup with Windows and start minimized (both options are in the GUI) so what reason is there to use the service? Then the question can be asked why does UMS support being run as a service? If the product is going to supp...

Re: Problems playing some MKVs with TSMuxer

I guess that was a red herring, the real issue here seems to be TSMuxer with 6 Channel (5.1) AC-3 The thing that stands out to me in the logs is this: DEBUG 2013-03-07 00:19:27.206 [Thread-68] Stream #0:0: Audio: ac3, 48000 Hz, 5.1(side), fltp, 384 kb/s (default) DEBUG 2013-03-07 00:19:27.808 [Threa...

Re: Problems playing some MKVs with TSMuxer

Could this be related? Looks like about the right timeframe.

Re: Problems playing some MKVs with TSMuxer

None of those settings seem to change the behavior. Keep AC3 was already checked as well as Remux with TxMuxer. Moving Mencoder to the top and checking Keep DTS do not seem to have any effect which doesn't surprise me given the audio is AC-3. I did just find a difference between the two files though...

[CLOSED] Make UMS a singleton / limit to a single instance

An old suggestion I made for PMS that applies to UMS as well: Can you put in code to limit UMS to a single instance? I run it as a service, but if I want to mess with the settings, I launch the GUI - which in turn starts another instance of UMS. If I launch the GUI again, another instance pops up. I...

Re: Problems playing some MKVs with TSMuxer

What do you have set as your default video transcoder (at the top of the list)? TSMuxer BTW the config file is part of the trace log bundle: engines = pmsencoder,tsmuxer,mencoder,avsmencoder,ffmpegvideo,ffmpegaudio,mplayeraudio,tsmuxeraudio,ffmpegwebvideo,vlcvideo,mencoderwebvideo,mplayervideodump,...
