    It has been a while since we have had a report about Universal Media Server. The latest build just dropped so I thought I would wrap up of some of the last few updates for the app. Over the past few months UMS has had its fair share of bug and stability fixes but what is more the focus of recent updates is compatibility for certain devices and file formats.
