Upgrade Notes:

For all versions below 3.2.0:
If you have enabled FFmpeg's fontconfig or hid the New Media folder, you will need to re-apply those settings.

For all versions below 3.0.0-b1:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. Windows users can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

Something is wrong since 3.4.0:
  1. ffmpeg is used by default even if mencoder selected or ffmpeg is disabled and unsuccessfully:

    Code: Select all

    [pool-12-thread-2] Starting "C:\Program Files\Universal Media Server\win32\ffmpeg.exe" -loglevel fatal -ss 0 -i "G:\ums\Spring Parade.avi" -an -an -an -an -an -an -an -an -an
    [pool-12-thread-2] Attaching thread: ffmpeg.exe-2
    [ffmpeg.exe-2-2] At least one output file must be specified
    [ffmpeg.exe-2-Cleanup] Stopping process: ffmpeg.exe-2
  2. chapters are not generated in 3.4.0+ at all, they are good in 3.3.0
I can't see how to attach full log here, does it need to be posted in ... ver/issues ?

Whats the ordering of files in the "new media" folder? It appears random.
Is there some reason the ordering preference isnt being applied to these files?
