Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

Change of default encoder was a hot/sensitive issue. Pls note the word default since it's implies that you can change it... Yes i know, i can switch back to Mencoder quite easily, changing to FFmpeg as the default does not bother me in the slightest. The point i was making is that if Mencoder is ev...

Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

Right have very quickly tested that UMS-1e6affc.exe 3.6.3 build you put together subjunk with a couple of the same video files i tried with the OverrideVideoFilter command in the 4.0.0a1 build and nope your 3.6.3 build does not work.

Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

Ive downloaded that build subjunk and will test during the week alongside the new beta version with the OverrideVideoFilter command and provide my findings for both :) and what performs better. It would be nice if this could be solved once and for all it has been a niggly issue for sometime in UMS a...

Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

Only done limited testing on about 5 files but looks good. I can confirm adding... OverrideVideoFilter = pad=max(iw\\,ih*16/9):max(ih\\,iw/16*9):(ow-iw)/2:(oh-ih)/2, setdar=4/3 To the BraviaEX.conf renderer file fixes the issue and videos of both 16:9 and 2.35:1 from my limited testing now play bac...

Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

If FFmpeg is going to be the new default encoder is there going to be a fix see that files play with the correct aspect ratio on certain Sony and Panasonic devices? The renderer option "KeepAspectRatio" works with MEncoder and FFmpeg, so hopefully there's no need to use CustomMencoderOptions. Pleas...

Re: Version 4.0.0-a1 is released

I made the switch to ffmpeg some time ago and the reason was that there were a lot of files that didn't play in mencoder. FFmpeg had subs issues (no support basically) but now it supports subs (at least the once I use). Anyway it is just the default encoder that is switched. If mencoder is better f...

Re: Web Streams, Aspect Ratio, PMSencoder and Bravia

Good point rnb5500 about the problem affecting all 3 web engines. Though it would be interesting to see what happens if that format=dvd line was removed, looking at http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/menc-feat-vcd-dvd.html it would appear if using the fomat=dvd command the rest of the settings are...

Re: Web Streams, Aspect Ratio, PMSencoder and Bravia

Update attached log file. I believe the problem may be related to Mencoderweb setting this line and specifically the bit in bold....

Web Streams, Aspect Ratio, PMSencoder and Bravia

So first off the problem in short. Web Streams do not seem to obey additional settings made for certain devices to render video aspect ratio correctly be it if making the setting changes in UMS itself or in your render.conf files. I have a Sony Bravia KDL40-EX403 which by now most reading will know ...
