hi and thanks for the update!!!

can you help me understand what the added option of toggling h.264 remixing in FFmpeg is? and maybe if that would be more beneficial in my situation?

I currently have tsmuxer do my remixing since i'm trying not to transcode my files.

Thanks

In 2.5.0 we gave FFmpeg the ability to mux videos, and this allows you to enable/disable that :)

It's all good. I saw the newer conf for the Sony Bluray...

It's mint! Glad you separated the models at the bottom.

What we need next is an IOS and Android app that can remotely talk/manage UMS....

PS: I love UMS. ;)
