Streaming Problems (lag) from PC to PS4

Post by Reignman » Sun Apr 15, 2018 11:07 am

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum, so a big "Hello" to everyone.

As many others in a forum, I have some problems which I cannot solve.
I am using a Server Pc with Win7 installed UMS 7.0.0, I´m streaming Videos (most are .mkv in 1080p some in 2160p) from my server to my PS4 Pro.
I use Video Engine ->tsMuxeR as number 1, when i stream normal movies they do not run smoothly, about 20-30 second from beginning it´s going to lag. I use gigabit Ethernet with cable!

Best regards, Mark

ps.: I can sent config file, please someone help how to save it.

The answer is simple. PS4 does not support the H265/HEVC video format so the video is transcoded. You can imagine how powerfull must be CPU to transcode on the fly so high content like 1080p or even 2160p. Your AMD Turion II Neo N54L is definitely not the propper processor to do it.

The problem is still the same. The video is transcoded not streamed e.g. "rescue.under.fire.2017.german.dl.1080p.bluray.avc-universum.mkv" has a "dtshd" audio format which is not supported by PS 4. It seems like the tsMuxeR problem. Have you tried to go to the TRANSCODE folder and choose the FFmpeg to play this file?
