Best way to setup the latest version of PMS

Postby scotster » Sat Aug 31, 2013 11:43 pm

I'm finding most of the guides and information a little bit outdated now, as I'm really struggling to get the recent versions of PMS working to the same standards as the old version.

For example I just spent the best part of an hour trying to watch an MKV file on my XB360. It wouldn't play no matter what transcoder option I selected, I checked the settings and I tried absolutely everything before eventually just giving up.

A quick browse around the net searching for the code error that I was getting brought up a VERY old thread that involved downgrading from 1.25 to 1.20. Just for the sake of trying it I downloaded 1.20 and it's working great.

I still get the same issues with the modern versions with the stuttering on the PS3 (Avi's pausing, video continuing for a few seconds, stuttering, etc) so I'm hoping that the downgrade will help with those issues too.

In the meantime though, is there anything I should be looking at to set up the latest version of PMS so that these previous features work as they used to?

Cheers :)

i too would like to hear some others inputs as well, i just noticed 1.90.1 for windows is out so i downloaded it but i'm hesistant to install it.

last time i installed 1.82 over 1.81 and it broke my ability to watch a lot of the type of movies i have stored. i had to roll back to 1.81 which is something i've never done with pms in the past, it's ways been solid with upgrades for years for me. the only method i use to playback movies over gigabit smoothly in HD is tsmuxer + dts, mencoder or anything else just skiops and usually crashes before 2minutes into the film, is there anyway to fix that? my windows 8 proc pc is finely tuned and fast, stable for months without needing reboots (but i have rebooted many times in the past when i just cant figure out some video clips that wont play in tsmuxer and feel like java crashes when i have to endtask it once the ps3 hangs, it still usually doesnt help and i end up having to either mkvmerge or mkv2vob the file to fix it right for pms)
