Please try this renderer profile for your ST60 and if it works well it will be in the next release.
A renderer configuration is a file that instructs UMS how to interact with your renderer (AKA your device, like a TV or console)WAusJackBauer wrote:I used the renderer you attached, but I probably should've asked. what is a renderer exactly? Because without this renderer you've given me, videos have still worked on both of my TVs.
It would probably be best to use the wireless setting for best stability. If you have a fast wireless network (AC with full bars) then you might get away with using the wired setting. You can try it.WAusJackBauer wrote:Just a quick question. My TVs and my computer are both connected to my router. My computer has all my movies on it and is connected to my router by an ethernet cable. My TV however is connecting to my router wirelessly, so in transcode settings should I select wired or wireless? I have a 100mb connection if that means anything.
FFmpeg is better. MEncoder has been all but abandoned, and is built on top of FFmpeg anyway. We work hard on our default settings and priorities, so the best thing to do is leave the settings at their defaults and the best engine will be selected automatically.WAusJackBauer wrote:Finally, in your opinion as a developer, what are the pros and cons for ffmpeg and MEnconder and which one would you overall recommend?
