Re: "Cannot play media" on PS4 after pausing or tracking

This is probably caused by bugs/shortcomings in UMS and isn't directly configurable. That said, there could be configuration options that impacts the bug unintentionally, but there's no "straight forward" way to remedy this. I doubt your old hardware is related, if that was the problem, you should g...

Re: cant fast foreword or rewind

It might be fixable, it depends. The reason you can't seek is that the file is being transcoded. If your TV can play the file form an external harddrive, chances are that it should not be.

Re: [Solved] Playback 4K in LG TV

@azraraktar Your setup looks correct for the file you posted, except that I'm not sure if DTS-HD MA will match "dtshd". To know for sure, one have to look in the log. Search for "Parsing results" and find the one that is for the file in question. If you use the cache (which you probably do), the par...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

@knifeyspooney That example was the the situation mik_s brought up. For you, the fix really is that they fix UMS. As far as I can tell, the "least bad" workaround for you to use in the meanwhile is to remove ac3 support in your PS4 configuration file. To do that, you should look at all the lines sta...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

Hehe, it isn't really that "black", but it's a lot to remember. I'd say that I use it "semi-frequently", so the things I use often I know without thinking. But, as soon as I move beyond my "comfort zone", I have to look up syntax/codes and test the expressions. I wrote a small regex tester back in.....

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

The bug isn't in MediaInfo, the bug is in UMS in that UMS' code hasn't been updated to match the changes made in MediaInfo. That said, you can already do "everything except" in the current system, since it uses regex. But, that would mean you'd have to learn some regex to use it ;) A simple "not con...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

It wouldn't be quite as easy as you seem to think, but it would absolutely be doable. I'm not sure there would be much benefit though, as it is now, everything that isn't "supported" is by definition "unsupported". It doesn't really matter if you define it "one way or the other". The reason this can...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

There's no way to transcode only selected tracks - either the whole file is transcoded or it isn't. But, if the parsing worked correctly, this file should have been transcoded for the PS4 exactly because it doesn't support EAC3. You can modify your renderer configuration to always transcode video fi...

Re: E-AC-3 & PS4 audio issue - always force transcode to AAC?

This seems like a bug in UMS to me, it parses the EAC-3 track as AC3 and thus thinks that the PS4 can play it. My prediction is that if you had a file with only EAC-3 track(s), it would fail to play completely unless you used the TRANSCODE folder. Log excerpt showing the bug (compare the media info ...

Re: [Solved] Playback 4K in LG TV

The line I posted was form your config file, so yes, I know it's already in there. I just used it as an example when trying to explain how it works. I can't "suggest" what to put in there, because I have no idea what works on your TV - and since I don't have that TV, there's no way for me to test it...
