Awesome media server that handles just about every device out there!
How great(er) can it be? I've been using PMS for several years. During the years there's been ups n downs. A couple of years ago I changed to UMS and I thought it was working as a charm. Had a few issues with 1080 movies, the computer couldn't get the hang of it. And the subtitles didn't always work. Well, could as much have been my own fault. So the other day I downloaded the new version. I have no words. The new UMS is perfect. I can play anything from my NAS or from the computer. Works like a charm! Thanks a lot.
Excellent - much better than the DLNA server of Windows Media Player/Center. Very fast browsing - so that any addition to an included folder is available virtually instantly without having to wait for libraries to be scanned. This single feature makes it much better than even the very popular Plex and XBMC. No problems with "classification" of media - WMP often mis-classifies media to "Other Media" so they become unavailable to receiving device. Trancoding - can play media on devices that may not support particular format - including displaying external subtitles. Simple elegant and WORKS!
Simple and easy to use. I can now stream videos to my Xbox 360 over wired connection (Ethernet) and to my Samsung TV over wifi without any hiccups. I love and highly recommend this app. :)
