Re: UMS not opening on Windows 10

I don't think the uninstaller removes the service, it's somewhat complicated to explain why, but it has to do with the fact that UMS is a Java program that can't really be run as a service which leads to the use of a (native) wrapper that complicates things. If the service is running while UMS is be...

Re: UMS not opening on Windows 10

It sounds like you have installed UMS as a Windows service. Doing that means that UMS runs in the background as soon as the computer starts, and it won't work to also start it "manually" while the service is running. The stop the service, you must use the "Service manager". You can open it by runnin...

Re: Video stream from PC to Xbox 360 stops

Netflix requires much less bandwidth, since those videos have been pre-transcoded with streaming in mind. UMS has to do the transcoding in realtime, so there's much less time to do advanced compression to save bandwidth. It also depends on the source video, if you studied the details, you will find ...

Re: Video stream from PC to Xbox 360 stops

"ac" isn't an option, it's a WiFi standard that "all parties" in the network (PC, router and Xbox) must support. If one or more of them don't, you won't get the bandwidth that "ac" provides: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11ac That said, "ac" only works well over very short distances/high si...

Re: Embed external subtitles to mkv on the fly

UMS transcodes to MPEG-2 Transport Stream "by default". MPEG-2 PS and Windows Media is implemented as well, but TS is the "primary target". But, it doesn't mux in the subtitles, although it would probably be possible to do. What it does instead is to transcode the source and "burn in" the subtitles.

Re: Embed external subtitles to mkv on the fly

UMS doesn't transcode to MKV at all with the current implementation, so the answer to that is no. That said, you could use FFmpeg to mux the subtitles into the files manually (but I expect that you want to avoid that). Are you sure that your renderer doesn't support external SRT subtitles via DLNA? ...

Re: Video stream from PC to Xbox 360 stops

Your internet speed has nothing to do with this, what matters is the bandwidth between your PC and the Xbox. If you're using a wireless network, they can often have a low and/or bandwidth. For the best results, use wired network. If that isn't an option, use "ac" wireless and make sure that the sign...

Re: Samsung Q7 transcode settings for unsupported formats

You can find the "bundled" renderer configurations here: https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer/UniversalMediaServer/tree/master/src/main/external-resources/renderers It doesn't seem to be a Q7 profile, but there seems to be for Q6 and Q9. The differences are probably relatively small, so you could...

Re: UMS 9.2.0 and Samsung 49MU6202

There are (even more) issues with the latest versions. Simply use an older version.

Re: "Can't read file" - now on almost all files

I guess it depends on how much you downgraded. I haven't really run UMS after 6.8.0, so I'm not familiar with the quirks of each version. Looking at your log, I just searched for the first attempt to play something, and checked out the metadata. <dc:title>This.Is.X</dc:title> <res xmlns:dlna="urn:sc...
