Sponsored Links
135w ago - Following up on their previous update, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer chocolateboy has announced that PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 is officially released for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X!

Download: PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.70.0 (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 (Mac) / Other PS3 Media Server Builds / SVN

PS3 Media Server 1.70.1 Changelog:

  • Add new default web video engine: FFMpeg Web Video
  • Add support for new web protocols: mmsh:// and mmst://
  • Sort files alphanumerically by default e.g. Episode 2 before Episode 10
  • Auto encoding detection of non UTF-8 external subtitles for Russian, Greek, Hebrew, Chinese, Korean and Japanese languages (leave "Subtitles codepage" option blank)
  • Improved handling of UTF-8 external subtitles
  • Localized #--TRANSCODE--# folder name
  • PMS.conf: Added transcode_folder_name option to allow #--TRANSCODE--# folder name to be customized (issue GC963)
  • Make example PMS.conf behave more like built-in defaults
  • Restore maximum buffer size to 600 MB (was 400 MB)
  • Prevented image distortion on some DLNA clients with "Keep AC-3 track" option enabled
  • Don't show entries for disabled engines in #--TRANSCODE--# folder
  • Allow Traces tab panel to auto-scroll (thanks, LordQuackstar!)
  • Revert changes to SMP-N100.conf that conflict with Sony Blu-ray players and break MKV support (thanks, mrw1986)
  • Replaced ImageMagick with Thumbnailator for thumbnail generation
  • Fix FFmpeg engine's handling of unsupported custom options (thanks, ajamess)
  • Fixed FFmpeg command line arguments used by tsMuxeR video
  • Added new renderer: Yamaha RX-A1010 (thanks, merelin)

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

Lots of changes this time!

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 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):

To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.50.1 Build 61 changes:

This build functions as the bleeding-edge testing version of PMS. Here you can find features and bugfixes before they are added to the official version, and sometimes ones that never will be. Using this build is mostly a way for you to see the newest developments and to help us by providing feedback.

Changelog 1.50.1 Build 61:

  • Switched from using Git source back to SVN
  • Synchronised with official r1024 from r1014
  • Updated MediaInfo for Windows and OS X to 0.7.53 from 0.7.52
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder for OSX to SB22, in sync with the Windows version.
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder to SB22 (Changelog: MPlayer & MEncoder SB22 released Spirton)
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder for OSX to SB21, in sync with the Windows version.
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder to SB21 (Changelog: MPlayer & MEncoder SB21 released Spirton)
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder for OSX to SB20 (Changelog: MPlayer & MEncoder SB20 released Spirton)
  • Updated FFmpeg for OSX to 0.9.1
  • Increment year
  • Updated FFmpeg to r35509 from r31564
  • Try to fix tsMuxeR with newer FFmpeg versions based on FFmpeg #898 comment (ffmpeg.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/898)
  • Updated to latest versions of libraries (codec, jdom, logback and slf4j)

Thanks:

Shagrath for the main project.
Chocolateboy, lokkju, jscott, ExSport and idavies, in no particular order, for code contributions.
DPT, jpagie, mads and mazey for private testing.
Tianuchka for help with translations.
The dozens of users who provide feedback in order to let me know what needs to be improved.

FYI if you're looking for something to bypass cinevia protection, these newer versions are no go for you - they've removed this experimental feature due to legal concerns. They did start looking at this, but i don't think it ever ended up in the actual releases (it was in subversion at some point, but they've since removed it). As per their forum: ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7220&start=130#p58376

I'm not interested in bypassing cinevia, but thought others might be.
