- Stereo and multi-channel (5.1 surround) audio.
- High quality subtitle overlay, support for embedded subtitles and SRT subtitle files.
- Selection of an audio stream and/or subtitle overlay from the DLNA device.
Positive review because it actually works (my criteria is ripped blu-rays and in particular coded with VC-1) and I tried many (plex, serviio,tvmobilis, univeral media server) that failed at some point on the critical transcoding activity. To fully fullfill my need I wish to have a readynas installer. But at least I found where to access the web interface for remote administration (there is HTTP access with port 4280)
I have problem when using. It shows "many job total=100" and then i cannot set up it.
I have especially registered to left real review as it seems all these review from technical people. First DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON OSX as it is a RAW program/app. It's not suitable for regular average apple user. Why? Simple. 1. Apple ecosystem requires for instance simple rule: Move to Applications folder and run. That's all, guys! Not pretend to work as in all in Linux, and not ugly interface as in Windows. OSX Mountain Lion, Maverics..program installed and run! Yeah! It shows ugly interface and strange logic's behind which folder to propaganda - Local means local PC (I think personal computer) and all devices locally bonded to local PC. Owner of the program said , NO. USB devices are going to the hell...But it's OK. We can create hardline, symlinks and aliases even to solve this. 2. Ugly Interface - I have no words. 3. Program / app runs and does NOTHING. Both TV one smart one no, said error watcher,, go,,go,,go..means error message TV can not enter into the media servier and show me movie listing in any form. This is last and important part as it shows how creators respect users. When I UNinstall this creating, I even used special uninstallators in OSX. I still see in listing of the UPNP/DLN?Media Servers in TV and Networking part this program/app/server. BUT I DID UNINSTALL the APP. If it is mark with -1 ..below ground. I will put that on the app. If I knew all this I for sure NOT to install this app on my beautiful macbook!
In my opinion the only one software in its class I found here really workable! But yes, only flaw for me is that it's impossible fo seek videofile during playing. Maybe this doesn't depend on this server but on media player? I'm using AIR AV and VLC, Not first nor second are able to seek video file during playing.
The only server I find workable. Not bloated and not written in damn java. Supports just about every file type. The only drawback for me is the way seek is implemented; it would be nice if seeking could work normally.
