Thanks. Great work.

Short question: Will you maintain the 4.x branch further or is the next step the 5.0 Beta?
Regards,
Jens

Looks like some nice changes!
Just letting you know, the same bug as in 4.21 and 4.22 still exists..
It doesn't like \u in pathnames...

Here's the thread with the temporary patch for 4.22:

RavenFire - yes that bug sneak in under our radar. Patch still applies.
We reject: kings, presidents and voting.
We believe in: rough consensus and running code.

Sony-BraviaEX.conf file still broken for some video files when using MEncoder

command line

Code: Select all

CustomMencoderOptions = -vf softskip,expand=::::1:16/9:2,scale=1283:720


needs
-lavcopts aspect=16/9

added to the end for certain video file to avoid the squashing effect, normally .mkv files with Format version: Version 4 / Version 2 and any file with writing application and/or library of Lavf5x.xx.xxx.

easily manually fixed but again overlooked.



PS...
Sony Bravia 4500 and 5500 conf files I THINK CAN can also be re-written for next version see only one is needed with the following...

Code: Select all

RendererName = Sony Bravia 5500 and 4500 Series
RendererIcon = bravia5500.png
UserAgentAdditionalHeader = X-AV-Client-Info
UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch = (BRAVIA KDL.+4[0-9]{3})|(BRAVIA KDL.+5[0-9]{3})|(BRAVIA KDL.+WE4)|(BRAVIA KDL.+WE5)|(BRAVIA KDL-[0-9]{2}XBR9)

SeekByTime = true
DLNALocalizationRequired = true
DefaultVBVBufSize = true
WrapDTSIntoPCM = false
MuxNonMod4Resolution = true
TranscodeExtensions = dvr-ms,dvr,mkv,dv,ty,mov,ogm,hdmov,hdm,rmv,rmvb,rm,asf,evo,asx,flv,m2v,mpe,mod,tivo,ty,tmf,ts,tp,m2p,mp4,m4v,avi,wmv,wm,divx,div,flac,mlp,fla,wma,m4a,aac,dts,mka,ape,ogg,shn,mpc,ra,mp2,wv,oma,aa3,gif,png,arw,cr2,crw,dng,raf,mrw,nef,pef,tif,tiff
AccurateDLNAOrgPN = true
ForceJPGThumbnails = true
ThumbnailAsResource = true

# Adding the below will fix AR issues currently on the 5500 also hopefully
OverrideFFmpegVideoFilter = pad=max(iw\\,ih*16/9):max(ih\\,iw/16*9):(ow-iw)/2:(oh-ih)/2, setdar=4/3
CustomMencoderOptions = -vf softskip,expand=::::1:16/9:2,scale=1283:720 -lavcopts aspect=16/9
CreateDLNATreeFaster = true
MediaInfo = true

# Supported video formats:
Supported = f:mpegps|mpegts   m:video/mpeg   v:mpeg2|h264   a:ac3|aac|mpa

# Supported audio formats:
Supported = f:mp3             m:audio/mpeg
Supported = f:lpcm            m:audio/L16

# Supported image formats:
Supported = f:jpg             m:image/jpeg


Although the 4500 series by default do not do video this should have no ill effect. I believe the most that would happen under video is just the transcode folder appearing....... THIS WILL NEED TESTING FIRST THOUGH FROM USERS..... PERHAPS TIME FOR SOME SPECIFIC DEVICE BETA BUILDS?????
