    • Download UMS-1.4.0.exe -Windows
    • Download UMS-1.4.0.tgz - Linux


    Plugin Installer

    The team have also added a Plugin Installer, here is a quote from that thread:

    In the forthcoming 1.4.0 release a new framework for distributing/installing plugins is added to UMS. The feature is meant to ease the burden on how to install plugins as well as the burden of distributing them. In the future plugins can be released via this website and rated etc.
    This is a rather big new feature so there might be some issues with it, so please report any problems found with it.

    So how does it work?
    As a user you’ll find a Download and Install Plugins button in the General Configuration tab. Click on it and a list of available plugins will be presented to you. The rating system is currently disabled so all plugins will have a rating of “-”. Select one or more plugins you want to install and press the Install button. Now the selected plugins will be installed and started.

    Plugin developers should read the description in the Developer section.

    many of you who are familiar with PS3 Media Server(PMS), will have heard of the developer SubJunk was a major contributor in the PMS circle, he even had his own build version, well it seems he has taken that build version of PMS and created his own seperate, but identical application, which he calls Universal Media Server or UMS, here is some information regarding this application:

    Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server.
    It is based on PS3 Media Server by shagrath. It is actually an evolution of the “SubJunk Build” of PS3MS.
    UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PS3MS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility.
    Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
    The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration.
    It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR and AviSynth, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats.

    Here is a list of devices that it works with:

    • Sony PlayStation 3
    • Microsoft Xbox 360
    • Sony Bravia
    • Google Android
    • Freebox HD
    • Freecom MusicPal
    • Pioneer Kuro
    • Nokia N900
    • Philips Aurea
    • Philips Net TV
    • Yamaha RX-V671
