Re: WEB.conf

Sadly the PS3MS forum was taken offline and I don't think anybody here knew and "saved" the content first. Luckily it seems that wayback machine has captured some snapshots of the links: http://web.archive.org/web/20160711110537/http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&p=37084 ht...

Re: ffmpeg64.exe has a return code of 1.

I'm not sure of the details, but problems that aren't there after installation but appears after the first reboot is something the more recent versions of UMS is plagued with. I would try an older version to see if the problem goes away.

Re: ffmpeg64.exe has a return code of 1.

I took a quick look at the log, but it's not immediately clear to me what goes wrong. It seems to be some issue with the Windows pipe being used. UMS claims that the pipe has been created and is ready for use, while FFmpeg claims that it doesn't exist. It could mean that FFmpeg doesn't have the perm...

Re: UMS not working after windows upgrade

I'm not sure what you have and haven't done, but it looks like quite a mess. I would uninstall UMS and Java, and remove any rules belonging to either after uninstallation - and then install from scratch.

Re: ffmpeg64.exe has a return code of 1.

The "return code of 1" is about as informative as "general error". It just means that something went wrong. So, one would need to study it further to see what it is that goes wrong - chances are that FFmpeg outputs a hint, but you'd probably be in "trace" mode for it to be logged.

Re: how to know if video is currently transcoding (re encoding)

It would be possible to just transcode the audio and remux it, but this is not implemented in UMS as far as I know. As to the CPU uses you provide, I have no good explanation. Instead of relying on CPU usage to determine what's happening, I would use the log. Change log level to "trace", and the sea...

Re: UMS not opening on Windows 10

The log doesn't show anything out of the ordinary. Because you didn't intend to make it, it's not in "trace" mode unfortunately, so a lot of information that would otherwise be there is missing. In any case, it's clear that something in the configuration folder caused the problem. You didn't have to...

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 ...
