Version 1.6.0 is released

Post by SubJunk »

General:

You can download it from the front page.

This release fixes the bug where the audio gets stretched after the episode recap on some videos, adds DTS support to the FFmpeg engine, adds support for UPC Horizon, and more (see changelog below)


Changes since 1.5.2:
  • General:
    • MEncoder and tsMuxeR no longer produce stretched audio with some videos
    • Improved handling of initialization errors
    • Updated h2 database to 1.3.168 (thanks, valib!)
    • Changed audio/subtitle defaults to accept anything
    • We no longer display language options in the transcode folder for engines that don't accept them
    • Renamed the FFmpeg/AviSynth engine to AviSynth/FFmpeg
    • The AviSynth/FFmpeg engine works again
  • FFmpeg:
    • Added DTS output support
    • Video quality settings fixed
    • Now respects the "remux AC-3" setting instead of always remuxing AC-3
  • Renderers:
    • Added support for Samsung SMT-G7400 (UPC Horizon)
  • Languages:
    • Made English language settings more accurate
    • Updated Chinese Traditional translation (thanks, mcc!)

Upgrade Notes:

For versions prior to 1.5.0:
It is recommended to delete your UMS.conf file prior to installing this version. For Windows users it is in ProgramData/UMS/.

For all versions:
It is recommended (but usually not necessary) to uninstall the older version before installing the new one.


Thanks:

The PMS developers.
glebb for building the OS X version.

Hi
I don't know what you have done but playback of my .mt2s files is terrible with stuttering, high bandwidth, and forced LPCM stereo sound using FFmpeg transcode for output to a PS3. None of the other Transcode engines appear to beany better. As such I have gone back to 1.5.2

Just tested a few Game of Thrones episodes and I'm still getting the stretched audio when streaming to the PS3. I do not have this problem if I stream directly to my Samsung TV.

Make sure you have the "remux AC-3" option selected

I had a problem with 1.6.0 and lock ups with my OPPO 93. If I stayed in pause too long, or tried going backwards through file hierarchy, it would freeze and require a restart of the unit. It was repeatable. I did check the debug.log but I could not find the problem there. I ran PS3MS and duplicating the same tasks ran into no lockup problems. I tried changing engines. No luck 1.6.0 would lock up OPPO 93. I did a clean install of 1.6.0. I downgraded to 1.5.2 and the lockup problems went away. It had to have been 1.6.0.

All that said, thank you so much for the time and effort you put into UMS. Your efforts are appreciated. 1.5.2 is working great.

That's weird, Raker13! PM me if you would be willing to test some versions to help me find the problem
