The other settings can be left at default for the most part, but it doesn’t hurt to familiarize yourself with whats available. PMS will use this folder and if the ‘root’ user had stuff in that folder related to PMS, the non-root user will have issues running the service.
The 7.0.0 version adds new features to dynamically sort your media, most notably there are new "TV Shows" and "Movies" folders that are populated automatically with content from your shared folders.
Other than that both server work exactly the same and communicate with target devices in the same exact manner.
The first time TVersity Media Server runs after an upgrade it does a full refresh of your media library.
Your feedback on this pre-release will be valuable, so let us know how it is working for you!
Note: This is a beta version, which means the feature list is complete but it is likely there are still bugs. Note: It is recommended you take a backup of your profile directory before installing this, as the changes to the fully played data are not reversible.
PS3 media server is now my go to application for transcoding and playing media around the house since development on Mediatomb came to a halt. So far it plays anything I throw at it on the Ps3 and the Sony NMP-200 I use around the house. Next, we need to create a file in the ps3mediauser home directory.This section is not relevant to the Screen Server, which has in its media library exactly two options: screen mirroring and PC audio playback.Your video game console is great for playing games, but you might not realise it's also one of the best media centres around.The location of your profile directory are near the top of the "Logs" tab in the program.FFmpeg and subtitles no longer works in that FFmpeg is not able to fill the buffer, and the PS3 throws an error.During this refresh the browsing of your media library (via a web browser, or any other device) may result in an error due to a known limitation with the TVersity Media Server, and so it is best to let the refresh complete before moving to the next step.Once the refresh of the media library is done you can safely move to the next step.I think this may be due to FFmpeg as I had put in a new FFmpeg into the 6.6.0 build before and had the same issue.When I say subtitles, I mean all subtitles, or .srt, internal or external.mp4 with external or mkv with external or mkv with internal (anime) mkv with internal text subs (I assume as they are rendered like external on the PC) mkv with vobsubs play but without the subs Force transcoding via FFmpeg the subs does play the file in all above cases.I did noticed that, when it fails, I don't get the subtitle icon bug, so it's as if it can't load or get the subtitle's language, as with prior versions playing a file with subtitles, even for 1 sec, will change the white arrow icon to the subtitle language's icon if thumbnails are off.
