Upgrade Notes:

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.

nice but just a headsup on sourceforge it points to transcode tools as the latest version, which shows up on the main page (summary page), imo it should be one of the most downloaded builds as it would get alot more hits from the main summary page because alot of people dont bother clicking files and just grab whats on the main page to try it out, i think the 64 bit full windows version as it seems to be the most popular now.

wouldnt hurt to put the pms logo also on the page as it shows up on the main listing of apps, so it gets abit more attention. :) the more downloads you get puts you closer to the first page which would lead to even more downloads :)

Good feedback.

Alas, that line "Looking for the latest version?" is automatically generated, as is the link on the homepage and I haven't figured out how it chooses the file to pick yet. I'll see what I can do.

*edit* Logo uploaded and correct defaults set. This should help, thanks! :-)

Unfortunately v1.90.0 did not fix the problem with thumbnails. It still doesn't display mp4 thumbnails on the PS3 or Samsung TV. :(

Just a heads up that pmsencoder isn't happy with the new version. ;) Probably something to do with the newer jre.

Thanks for the update guys,

sorry I have not much knowledge about the programing part but I've been a user for the past almost three years. I noticed that since I installed the new released version 1.90.0 I have access to my server from the Xbox360 but not longer availability to play any movie in any format. I tried keeping the same parameters that I had in the version 1.82.0 but it doesn't work. Is there something specific that I need to change/do in order to make it work?

Also since the "*.mkv" movies are launched I'm not able to see them in the Xbox360 since they pause every10 seconds. when I watch the same movies in a regular computer from the server, they play without pause in between. Advices?

Thanks again!

Another removed deprecated method in use by the plugin.
The plugin could really do with an update.

Thanks, but what about what is happening with the movies extension "MVK", this inconsistence is something that is happening for me in the XBOX since couple of versions before..
thanks
