Universal Media Server 2.2.4 Released

January 10, 2013

The updates keep rolling out for the Universal Media Server media streaming application. This version brings improvements to the MEncoder and prevents subtitle overlaps.



  • General:
    • Prevents internal and external subtitles from showing at the same time
  • External Components:
    • Updated MPlayer/MEncoder to SB48, which:
      • Runs faster
      • Crashes less
      • Detects framerates more accurately
      • Fixed subtitle bug on certain CPUs
      • Improved audio/video sync
      • Fixed memory leaks
      • Improves AVI support
      • Fixed audio stuttering/repeating bug
      • Fixed alpha for ASS subtitles
      • Improves permissions handling on Windows
      • Removes incorrectly categorised fonts
      • Makes ASS/SSA subtitle rendering up to 3.5x faster
      • Improves AC-3 audio buffering
      • Fixes a bug which detected transport streams as finished when they weren’t
      • Improved MPEG-PS encoding

As always, the installation / upgrade instructions remain the same. If you are upgrading from a version that is lower than 1.5.0, it is recommended that you delete the ‘UMS.conf’ file before proceeding and that you should always remove the previous version before installing the new one.
