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

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 strongly 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):

Code: Select all
engines =
key_sort_method =

I'm on Mac OSX and I still have problems with Hebrew and Japanese subs not displaying properly. I guess Persian subtitles are in the same league.

The changelog does note this:

  • Auto encoding detection of non UTF-8 external subtitles for Russian, Greek, Hebrew, Chinese, Korean and Japanese languages (leave "Subtitles codepage" option blank)

Have you tried that?

Hi, I don't think so because when I use the commands in my Ubuntu it doesn't get upgraded. Any news?

Thank you!!
