54w ago - Following up on their previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Raptor399 and chocolateboy have announced that PS3 Media Server 1.72.0 is officially released for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X!
Fixed bug that occurred when using ShowDVDTitleDuration
Fixed bug that caused embedded subtitles to be displayed when subtitles are disabled
Fixed bug in handling of filenames with embedded $ characters
Removed option to automatically switch to tsMuxeR (available manually via the #--TRANSCODE--# folder)
For 1.70.0 and above:
Just uninstall the older version and install the newer one.
For versions prior to 1.70.0:
It is recommended 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), see the upgrade notes for previous major releases (e.g. 1.50.0, 1.60.0 &c.) for migration instructions.
