Fans of SubJunk and co’s Universal Media Server application for computers will be glad to know that there’s an update available for download.

According to SubJunk, this update improves MKV support, enables a faster server connection on some renderers and fixes FFmpeg on Xbox, among other things. Here is the changelog detailing it all:

    • Improved design on OS X
    • Fixed FFmpeg video transcoding on Xbox
    • Fixed file permissions on Linux
    • Plugins can use custom icons for files (thanks, skeptical!)
  • Languages:
    • Updated Korean translation (thanks, sunghyuk!)
  • External Components:
    • Updated MPlayer/MEncoder for Windows to SB49, which:
      • Improves MP3 encoding speed

As always, you can find the latest version of Universal Media Server available for download below. If you are updating from a version prior to 1.5.0, it is recommended to delete the ‘UMS.conf’ file before proceeding with the update and that it is recommended to uninstall the prior version before installing the new one.
