Hate to quote myself, but have not heard an answer, and it seems this latest version of UMS is causing some weirdness on my end. I Just installed the Java 7 version, but wondering if I should have installed the Java 8 version. I am on Windows 8.

I'm not actually sure. I have windows 8, but Java 7 installed. I think it's for people who have Java 8 installed for whatever reason.

 

I'm still running 4.10 just now so can't comment on weirdness :(

Thanks, that is what I figured, but wondered if there was any difference in stability or performance between the 2 versions. I am still on Java 7 myself.

 

I was still back on 3.6 something, had not updated in awhile as that was rock solid for me, but very recently I found a few .mkv files that were not playing properly which usually would be fixed if I updated this app, so updated to this latest version.

 

My PS3 just never saw anything, no folders, no files, nothing, and eventually timed out. Triple checked and all settings are good, as are my shared folders. Sure enough when I tried 3.6, same deal.

 

I then restarted my computer (had been up for like 45 days) and it took like 20 minutes to restart, was very alarming, and when I tried the 3.6, worked right away, tried this new version, same deal, nothing. Then once again nothing with 3.6.

 

So it is just weird as I said. The second time I had to restart my computer restarted right away and I was back to the desktop in 15-20 seconds right away, so I just stuck with 3.6 and decided to just watch an older movie not to tempt fate.

 

So yeah, just weird. I may try to reinstall soon and see what is up.

Did you do a clean install of the app? There's a check box to do that - You can't come from 3.x to 4.x keeping your settings saved sadly. Too many changes were made.

I did not do a clean install nope.

However last night I wound up playing around with some settings in this latest one just to see what was up, and it looks like it works now. So that was probably it. A corrupt config file that fixed itself because I made some manual changes.

Thanks AB.

Yeah the config file would have gone crazy from 3.x to 4.x. Whatever you've done may have reset it and kept your settings, bonus :)

Can this transcode h265/hevc?

 

I was thinking once content shifts towards that it would become a common thing to do since it will take time for people to switch to h265 capable devices. I tried streaming some h265 videos to my TV but they aren't being transcoded. I couldn't find any conf things related to that.
