Re: Web entries duplicate when I try to delete them

UMS will handle content for the individual renderers (TVs) individually, so that's not an issue. UMS will stream the file as-is if it can, and will transcode when it can't. The transcoding is done in real-time, so there's nothing "prepared" in advance based on what devices are on the network.

Re: Web entries duplicate when I try to delete them

You can specify the maximum resolution in the renderer configuration, so you could use that to "trick" UMS into downscaling content. But, it the TV is HD, it should already be restricted to that. I don't think it's likely that the TV will accept 4K content via UPnP and then downscale it, I think it'...

Re: Web entries duplicate when I try to delete them

Ah, my bad. Of course they are in WEB.conf :oops: Somebody else will have to reply to what type of streams can be used, since I have never really looked into the details of how streaming of networked sources work. What I do know is that the capabilities are quite limited, and the main reason for thi...

Re: Web entries duplicate when I try to delete them

This seems like a bug for sure. Instead of waiting for a fix, if you want to get rid of them, stop UMS and open UMS.conf in a text editor. Find the lines there, and delete them. Save and start UMS, and they should be gone. I don't remember the location of UMS.conf on macOS, but I'm sure you can find...

Re: "Data type is not supported" (800288BF) error on PS3

The PS3 doesn't support MKV, so all you achieved by doing that is that UMS will transcode the file. The goal here, as I understand it, was to identify the properties of the AVI files that doesn't work on the PS3 so that UMS wouldn't try to send them, but transcode instead - but only when actually ne...

Re: Devices can't find UMS

This is the most common problem on this forum, and you can find tons of thread on the topic. You should read some of the others to see what you can do to troubleshoot. In short, there are 3 "usual suspects": Firewall, different subnets for UMS and the renderers, and that UMS binds to the wrong netwo...

Re: Unwanted transcoding of .MP4 files with {English Subtitles} in their names

Disclaimer: I haven't tested any of the later versions of UMS, so there could be bugs that I'm not familiar with. That said, there are things you can do if this isn't caused by a bug. The situation is such that subtitles must be "rendered" on top of the video at some stage to be visible. This applie...

Re: ums-9.8.0 armhf for Raspberry Pi: UPnP server not visible

There can be a multitude of issues, but fundamentally, what's needed is: Port 5001 TCP, port 1900 TCP and port 1900 UDP incoming, and "any" outgoing. I have no idea of what firewall or other "blocking software" is running on the server, but these must be allow traffic through somehow. When you acces...

Re: Troubleshoots with Samsung 7 Series and UMS

It's generally easier if you narrow it down as much as possible, so that it's possible for the person reading the log to get some overview. I would suggest making a new log file where you only play one file that works and one that doesn't. Then specify which worked and which didn't when you post the...
