128w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer SubJunk has updated PS3 Media Server to version 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Windows, Linux and Mac which includes several bug fixes as detailed below.

Download: PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Windows / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Linux / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Mac

To quote: Built from SVN r970. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet. No new features have been added since 1.50.0 Beta 1 but many bugs have been fixed.

Changelog:

  • Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12235 for more details
  • Updated binaries build script to include Linux support (thanks, happy.neko!)
  • Updated OS X MPlayer to include fontconfig support
  • Updated Bulgarian translation (thanks, JORDITO!)
  • Updated German translation (thanks, smo!)
  • Updated Dutch translation
  • Added full featured IP filter with support for wildcards and ranges
  • Improved network interface choosing algorithm now skips virtual interfaces
  • Updated libraries (configuration, jgoodies and slf4j)
  • Detect file system changes runtime (adding/removing folders/files).
  • Updated JRE auto-download from 6u27 to 7u1
  • Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
  • Renderer image improvements
  • Improvements to tab layouts
  • Maximum bandwidth setting works
  • Limit bandwidth to 110Mb/s by default which should solve a lot of "stuttering playback" reports
  • Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
  • Recognise forced subtitles (thanks, ExSport!)
  • Clarified English language labels
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder on Windows from Sherpya's old builds to SubJunk's new builds which fixes many playback issues, color-conversion bugs and more (but possibly has drawbacks for some files, too)
  • Main (Status) tab displays a large tick when it's connected to a renderer instead of a PS3 or warning image
  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.50 from 0.7.47

I have suddenly started getting some major stutter on MKVs when playing through Media Server. Wired connection, any MKV file of 720p or greater, not sure what the issue is...
