  • Localized #--TRANSCODE--# folder name

  • MEncoder: disable AC-3 remux if audio track has delay, disable DTS and LPCM remuxing if tsMuxeR engine is unavailable

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):

Nice one. I like tools that where cross compiled and can be used on every platform. Big THX to SubJunk.

To quote:

General:

Built from SVN r949. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet.

Changelog:

  • Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see [Register or Login to view links] 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, colour-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

This build functions as the bleeding-edge testing version of PMS. Here you can find features and bugfixes before they are added to the official version, and sometimes ones that never will be.

Using this build is mostly a way for you to see the newest developments and to help us by providing feedback.

1.50.0-SB51 Changelog:

  • Synchronised with official r930 from r910, changelog: [Register or Login to view links]

Huh?! They add bugs to the official version? Is this deliberate? Hehehe ... Just sounded funny. Anyway - these guys do awesome work. This remains the best media server ever!

Tianuchka for help with translations. The dozens of users who provide feedback in order to let me know what needs to be improved.

This is great work! Can't wait to try it. Maybe Synology can add this to their list of compaitble software for their NAS. This is still the best media server. Well done guys.
