When you say improves support for VT60, is it strictly for VT60 or ST/GT60 also and maybe even the 50 series?

It's strictly for the VT60 because I don't want to accidentally break support for other ones. If you're willing to test some improvements on the others let me know and I can arrange some test files

Sure I'll have a look, mine is a GT50 and I think changes could work.

Thanks for the release.


But it seems the fully played action is broken.

Sorry for the late reply, I needed to locate and find some sample files to use. Hopefully these samples will help you to test whether we can add those files: https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer ... t/pms/dlna
An easy way to do it would be to force detection of VT60 and see which files will play when using the [No Transcoding] option in the #-TRANSCODE-# folders

Thanks for reporting it. Is this comment for 9.4.3 or 9.5.0? And is it about thumbnail overlays or another action?

Imo it was already broken in 9.4.2 but i will check. But could be in a few days.

You want me to test all those files or is there a specific one? The change made must have been for a particular file type. And how to force VT60 detection?

You'll get the most benefits from testing them all, but if you're only interested in this latest change it was to add support for VC1 video codec inside MKV, so the file to test is "video-vc1.mkv"
