Well something went really wrong with this new version and my TV Samsung UE49NU7105, now 90% of my files doesn't play, my TV give an error and skip to the next one, which give an error and skips to the next one, and so on. My only option is to go to the Transcoding folder and select the No Transcoding option for each and every file I want to play. I'm not sure yet, but I think the files that give errors are the ones with subtitles, the files that doesnt have subtitles play normally, I will keep testing this part and give more info when I can.

Oh and all the files that give errors appear as 0.00 size when navigating the thumbnails, not sure if its related to the problem or not.

EDIT: Ok definitely the culprits are the subtitles, each and every file I try to play with internal / external subtitles my TV gives me an error, but the files without subtitles play normally from the thumbnails. Same happens with the size of the files, all files with subtitles show as 0.00. Just to clarify, on 9.1.0 everything worked perfectly.

Almost the same here. Files with external subs that used to play perfectly fine are now transcoded.
I'm playing with an LG WebOS TV and the trace log shows something like this (some lines removed for clarity:

Code: Select all

Matched external subtitles track for "xxxx.mkv": External, type: SUBRIP, lang: es, externalFile: C:\...\xxxx.srt, external file character set: ISO-8859-1
Reading SupportedExternalSubtitlesFormats: "SUBRIP,WEBVTT" (default: "")
This video has external subtitles that can be streamed
...
...
External subtitles format undefined in Supported lines, video will be transcoded
Apparently the new feature to specify subtitle format on the "supported lines" is causing some issues when the subtitle format is not defined in the "supported lines" even though they are defined in "SupportedExternalSubtitlesFormats"

EDIT: added a comment about this over here: https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer ... -577003563
