Nice new interface. Few quick observations.

I've noticed a few rare instances where the scrolling name does not appear under the renderer.

Also, the time displayed for the file (X/Y) does not stop if you pause the file such that X>Y at the end of the file. Actually, if the file is done playing, X still keeps ticking. And in the memory bar, is the blue part the video buffer? And the rest used by the program itself?

Madoka - The time values are a bit render dependent. If your render behaves "good" it will report the current position back to UMS and we update that in the gui. If it doesn't we use an internal timer to update this and since the render doesn't report time it most likely doesn't report when it pauses/starts/stops either so thats why. Not much to do actually (except maybe add a check to prevent X>Y but that will not do that much).
The memory bar at the bottom is how much heap the JVM uses out of it's total allowed size. The blue bar that becomes visible over each renders IP address is the video buffer. There is no total video buffer anymore it is included in the total memory.

pulp - I'll see if I can have a look. Songs do work.

Nope. it just means you don't have a WEB.conf file and thus UMS will not add a WEB folder. If this wasn't intended (or if you've got some odd permissions so that the WEB.conf can't be read) you should probably reinstall/restore the WEB.conf/make sure it is readable by UMS.

Does it work with 4.x? This is not something that has changed in 5.0 so if it works in 4 it should work.

Somethings different on Xbox One, I can no longer stream .mkv:s without transcoding. I could do this fine on the 5.0aplha. When I open the GUI there are 2 instances of the Xbox One and when clicking them the other one has the play controls and the other one obly has the used .conf line.
