DLNA-compliant UPnP media server.

Overview

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 PMS. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, 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 Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats. A list of device support and a comparison of popular media servers is available here.

Nice to see a replacement for ps3mediaserver. BUT, this one seems to require JavaRuntime 6 ... My 10.9 mac runs JavaRuntime 7 ! Please rebuild this one for Java 7 ?

Never worked. PS3 Media Server, which is quite the same but no longer updated for years STILL works like a charm...

I have several media servers, including UMS, on my Mac. Since upgrading to MacOS X 10.9.2 earlier today, none of them finds my PS3 renderer anymore! Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

Unfortunately not working. I'm using the same settings as with PS3 Media Server but no chance to get a connection or even find the PS3. PS3 Media Server still runs perfect, so no need to use this.

I will refrain from rating this for the time being, as I was unable to rig it for access via media players throughout the household network or even on the machine in which it was installed. It shows promise, but... At present it is in no position to compare itself to XBMC, Plex, or both used interactively across clients and servers on the same network. It has a long way to go for user friendliness, convenience, interface organization / design, navigation, etc. It is a promising concept for a cross-platform world... but the promise is far from being fulfilled.

Why should I install java 6 if I allready have java 7 on my system ? In the "other downloads" section I found a 10.9 java 7 install which works fine .

You can, and should, have Java 6 and 7 installed. That's for situations like this. I have both.

The Java 7 JVM can execute java 6 bytecode so why would you need java 6 just for this one? "Java has binary backward compatibility. This means that if you have a program that has been compiled for and is running with Java SE 6, it will also run on a Java SE 7 JVM. Java SE 7 is strongly compatible with previous versions of the Java platform. Almost all existing programs should run on Java SE 7 without modification. However, there are some minor potential incompatibilities in the JRE and JDK that involve rare circumstances and "corner cases" that are documented here for completeness: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/compatibility-417013.html#incompatibilities." Henrik Stahl, Oracle https://blogs.oracle.com/henrik/entry/migrating_from_java_se_6 This is a corner case, is it? Really? Java 8 is a reality now.

@Mikael B, "The Java 7 JVM can execute java 6 byte code so why would you need java 6 just for this one?" Because some software looks at the java version and won't run. I don't know that this one does. Because I've never used it. But I did have that issue with some Java apps in the past. That's why I can install both 6 and 7. The Java control panel used to allow you to select which one to use, and in which order to use them.
