85w ago - Following up on their previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer chocolateboy has announced that PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 is officially released for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X!

Download: PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.70.0 (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 (Mac) / Other PS3 Media Server Builds / SVN

Lots of changes this time!

Notes:

Version: The Windows and Mac OS X versions are 1.70.1 rather than 1.70.0 due to a packaging issue spotted during release. There is no functional difference between 1.70.0 and 1.70.1.

Upgrade Notes:

Issues with the sample PMS.conf file bundled with PMS 1.53.0 to 1.60.0:

Prior to this release, the sample PMS.conf bundled with PMS since 1.53.0 (June 2012) set values different to the built-in defaults. If you created a PMS.conf by copying one of these sample files to your profile directory, it should be removed and settings should be re-entered and saved in the GUI.

Changes to default settings:

Two default settings have been changed in this release: the default web video engine (FFmpeg Web Video) and the default file sort order (alphanumeric). As a result of these changes, you are advised to back up and remove your old PMS.conf and re-enter and save your settings (if any) in the GUI.

Alternatively (e.g. if you have a large number of customizations you wish to preserve), the new defaults can be enabled in PMS.conf by removing the following properties (if they exist):

Typical - not been on / checked for a few days and i miss the latest announcement!

Anyway, as always thanks for the news PS3NEWS

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...
I think there was some mention of MKV stutter on the forums - check the comments on the last few releases: ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=8 (the main announcement forum)
