This is a big bugfix release, this release fixes compatibility for a lot of files.
Thanks to – in no particular order – mazey, Mads, M. C. and Jakob for QA on this release
Changelog: (full version)
- Synchronised with official r511 from r506 (Click here for changelog)
- Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.41 from 0.7.35 which improves support for weird files
- Updated PMSEncoder from 1.4.0 to 1.5.1
- Fixed conflict between MT and ASS/SSA Subtitle option
- ASS option no longer breaks VOBSUB subtitles
- MP4 container + SRT subtitles are no longer bugged.
Note: In that specific case, ASS subtitle styles won’t apply. This is because of a MEncoder bug so there is nothing to be done about it. You can mux the MP4 container to MKV using MKVToolnix to fix that.

Thanks for the new version SB18! 🙂
In new version SB18 Play [DVD ISO] VIDEO_TS
[New I/O server worker #1-2] TRACE 20:49:36.003 Starting transcode/remux of Title 6
TRACE 20:49:36.249 Process C:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Media Server\win32\mencoder_mt.exe has a return code of -1073741819! Maybe an error occurred… check the log file 🙁 🙁 🙁
In the version SB13 there is no such error 🙂

I keep getting these messages in PMS when Opera is running:
[New I/O server worker #1-1] TRACE 01:51:20.897 Media renderer was not recognized. HTTP User agent: Opera/9.80 (Windows NT 6.1; U; en) Presto/2.8.104 Version/11.10

@Jakob: Cheers 🙂
@Sveller: Thanks for letting me know. I am already working to fix that bug, hopefully in SB19 🙂
@Drugs: That is normal

SB18 fixed the .mp4 subtitle problems like a charm! Thx for that. An other issue I’ve run into is that some DVD isos / VIDEO_TS folders aren’t working as they are supposed to. Pms only sees title 1 and nothing else.
Again no errors are being shown. Any idea why that might be? I can post a detailed log if you wish.

@KrisseZ & Nomad: Thanks for reporting this. I’m working on it and I hope to have it fixed in SB19. AFAIK SB13 is the last working version for DVD ISOs, so feel free to rollback to that version until SB19 🙂
