Xbox 360 Profile & CustomFFmpegOptions

Post by DarkJoney » Sat Jun 16, 2018 10:39 am

Hello, guys. I run UMS and Emby at HP Microserver N40L with slow Turion CPU, but I have GT1030 installed. Emby uses it perfectly while I use it with Chromecast, no shutter, no lag, but it's not able to work with X360 due to the lack of profile, and that's why I am trying to deal with UMS.
I would like to use my Gt1030 with UMS, CUDA or NVENC, no sense, I just want to get rid off 100% CPU load while streaming. The tick "use gpu" does nothing, I tried ffmpeg, ffmpeg+avisync, + CoreAVC, and finally I have moved ffmpeg libs from Emby to UMS, which support both CUDA and NVENC, and still nothing changed, the CPU keeps loaded at 100%.
I had a huge problems with default profile, and now I am able to watch movies on X360 after I limited max resolution in it to 1280x720. But, CPU is still loaded, and I want to use nVIdia.
I tried to deal with CustomFFmpegOptions, but any change of this parameter caused "process exit with code 1" and "error argument". I tried to copy default settings from the log, and it kept crashing.
Most servers transcode stream in WMV, but UMS says mpeg2video. I find it a bit strange.
Guys, please, gimme an example of working default parameters of CustomFFmpegOptions for X360, or just a string with the settings which can activate nvidia with ffmpeg.
I will really appreciate your help. Thanks.

P.S Running at Windows Server 2012 R2.

feel free to test this Xbox 360 renderer and give feedback. ... ox360.conf

For UMS replace the line

Code: Select all

H264LevelLimit = 4.1
by this one instead:

Code: Select all

H264Level41Limited = true
Your renderer's feedback will be greatly appreciate ;)

Have a nice day,
