      • Preserve source video quality
    • FFmpeg Video:
      • Custom FFmpeg options are now read before each transcode rather than only at startup
        (parity with custom MEncoder options)

    • Fixed response to M-SEARCH "ssdp:all" message (thanks, ler0y!)
    • Fixed fontconfig configuration for Mac OSX, improving subtitle quality
    • Moved several transcoding settings from MEncoder to Common transcoding settings
    • Layout improvements to remove scroll bars where possible
    • Help is now context sensitive

Upgrade Notes:

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 etc.) for migration instructions.

Hello,

i've downloaded the v.1.80.0 and i'm not the only one having the problem that my ps3 or smart tv doesn't connect to my iMac. I recently updated my iMac with the Java title update 7. Any news when a patch hits? Thanks in advance.

Patch works.
I replaced
Code: Select all
/Applications/PS3 Media Server.app/Contents/Resources/Java/repo/net/pms/pms/1.80.0/pms-1.80.0.jar
with development version with dependencies.
Thanks all.
Where I can donate?
