Version 8.2.0 released

Post by SubJunk » Sun Jun 23, 2019 5:41 pm

General:

You can download it from the front page or install it via Docker with:

Code: Select all

docker pull universalmediaserver/ums
This release improves the Media Library, media sorting, network performance, and more!

Changes since 8.1.0
  • General:
    • Removed duplicate information from TV episode filenames in the Media Library
    • Improved filename recognition
    • Append engines to filenames instead of prepend, to stop breaking alphabetization
    • Added the possibility to have a virtual folder without adding it to the Media Library (thanks, maciekberry!)
    • Fixed UMS not starting as a service on Windows (thanks, pponce!)
    • Fixed a broken translation when alerting a user that they are sharing a non-existing folder
  • Languages:
    • Updated translations via Crowdin:
      • Afrikaans translation updated
      • Arabic translation updated
      • Catalan translation updated
      • Croatian translation updated

  • Dependencies:
    • Updated Apache HttpAsyncClient to 4.1.4

Notes:
  • Java Runtime Environment 8 is strongly recommended. Newer versions may cause problems. Use a standalone version if you do not want to have Java installed.
  • The Windows releases work on Windows Vista onwards.

Re: Version 8.2.0 released

Hello,

Thanks for the new release!

I am using UMS in a Ubuntu 18.04 box.
In this release the problem with the empty "#--TRANSCODE--#" folders is no longer there, but I still do not see video thumbnails on my Samsung UA55M5500AKXXS TV (not a big issue).

There is in the 8.2.0 release a new issue with the Prettify filenames features, because it now (regardless of the title in the file name) consistently does the following:
  • S01E01 - Some File Name.mp4 is transformed into S01E01 - 101.mp4
  • S01E02 - Some File Name.mp4 is transformed into S01E02 - 102.mp4
  • S01E03 - Some File Name.mp4 is transformed into S01E03 - 103.mp4
  • etc...
Lastly I see a new !FoldTab.showEngineNames! option in the Navigation Settings tab, so there seems to be some kind of interface translation issue there.

I will continue to use this new version, so again thanks and have a great day! :D

Best regards,

Johnny

Hi johnsim, thanks for letting us know about the issues. I have fixed that broken string for the next release. Can you please give me more details about the prettifying bug? I have tried to reproduce but I can't.

Hello SubJunk,

Thank you for the response!

Right now I do not seem to have the option to attach files to my posts, so I have uploaded the TRACE log file here: https://we.tl/t-L0f6O1wLiE

What I did to reproduce the error is navigate in Firefox to a folder in which these files can be found:
  • S01E01 - Midnight on the Firing Line.m4v
  • S01E02 - Soul Hunter.m4v
  • S01E03 - Born to the Purple.m4v
  • S01E04 - Infection.m4v
  • S01E05 - The Parliament of Dreams.m4v
  • S01E06 - Mind War.m4v
  • S01E07 - The War Prayer.m4v
  • S01E08 - And the Sky Full of Stars.m4v
  • S01E09 - Deathwalker.m4v
  • S01E10 - Believers.m4v
  • S01E11 - Survivors.m4v
  • S01E12 - By Any Means Necessary.m4v
  • S01E13 - Signs and Portents.m4v
  • S01E14 - TKO.m4v
  • S01E15 - Grail.m4v
  • S01E16 - Eyes.m4v
  • S01E17 - Legacies.m4v
  • S01E18 - A Voice in the Wilderness (1).m4v
  • S01E19 - A Voice in the Wilderness (2).m4v
  • S01E20 - Babylon Squared.m4v
  • S01E21 - The Quality of Mercy.m4v
  • S01E22 - Chrysalis.m4v
With Prettify filenames enabled UMS displays these file names instead:
  • S01E01 - 101
  • S01E02 - 102
  • S01E03 - 103
  • S01E04 - 104
  • S01E05 - 105
  • S01E06 - 106
  • S01E07 - 107
  • S01E08 - 108
  • S01E09 - 109
  • S01E10 - 110
  • S01E11 - 111
  • S01E12 - 112
  • S01E13 - 113
  • S01E14 - 114
  • S01E15 - 115
  • S01E16 - 116
  • S01E17 - 117
  • S01E18 - 118
  • S01E19 - 119
  • S01E20 - 120
  • S01E21 - 121
  • S01E22 - 122
Thank you for your support!

Best regards,

Johnny

Same problem here with file names, using UMS to link PS3 to my PC (Win10). Accents seem to disappear. For example, "L'élu" becomes "L", simply... seems new version does not like apostrophies, accents, and maybe some other things in file names !

This apart, seems to work well (have to test with a DTS sound file, though).

Hi, I posted in the general help forum and I have not gotten a response yet. I cannot uninstall this program, and it is starting to damage my computer! Please, someone needs to actually respond for once. Thanks

Hello SubJunk,

Thanks a lot for the snapshot update!

Indeed in the snapshot version the Prettify filenames feature works correctly, so I think we are on the right track now :)

The only thing I noticed is many "Unhandled exception..." warning messages in the log looking like this:

Code: Select all

09:54:49 WARN  Unhandled exception while resolving S01E01 - Midnight on the Firing Line: null
09:54:49 WARN  Unhandled exception while resolving S01E02 - Soul Hunter: null
09:54:49 WARN  Unhandled exception while resolving S01E03 - Born to the Purple: null
09:54:49 WARN  Unhandled exception while resolving S01E04 - Infection: null
....
Again thanks!

Best regards,

Johnny
