UMS 2.6.4 - Unable to play MKVs

Post by thetallest » Wed May 15, 2013 5:53 pm

I have two MKVs that I am unable to play on UMS. These are the first two files I have attempted to play using this program.

Debug logs for both files are attached. Below is the MediaInfo. These are both files ripped from BluRay using the latest version of MakeMKV.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that my Mini's fan goes full blast whenever the UMS tries to stream files to the PS3. Is that normal?

Welcome to the forums thetallest. I will get around shortly looking into your bug post.

Edit: If you playing .mkv's to your PS3 it has to transcode them. Not sure what/why your problem is playing those but i may need a little help from some more experienced guys, Subjunk, Anyone????

This is same as this thread - ( viewtopic.php?f=9&t=886 ) I tried a lot of options but nothing works.

We really need a fix :), this has become a big problem.
