This release improves MKV support, enables faster server connection on some renderers, fixes FFmpeg on Xbox and more!

Changes since 2.2.5:
  • General:
    • Some renderers (like Philips HTS) can connect more quickly with the server
    • Improved support for Sony Bravia HX series TVs
    • Improved design on OS X
    • Fixed FFmpeg video transcoding on Xbox
    • Fixed file permissions on Linux
    • Plugins can use custom icons for files (thanks, skeptical!)
  • Languages:
    • Updated Korean translation (thanks, sunghyuk!)
  • External Components:
    • Updated MPlayer/MEncoder for Windows to SB49, which:
      • Improves MP3 encoding speed
      • Improves MKV support
      • Improves threading
      • Fixes memory leaks

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 you can choose the "clean install" option while installing instead.

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