When I want to play the file without transcode, it just works.

Are you using the config I posted?
I may have misinterpreted how some of the formats are written and I think the mpegps line is wrong

Code: Select all

Supported = f:ts|trp|tp|mts   v:h264|h265|mpeg2                 a:mp3|ac3|eac3|aac-lc|he-aac|adpcm      m:video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts

should have been

Code: Select all

Supported = f:ts|trp|tp|mts   v:h264|h265|mpeg2                 a:mp3|ac3|eac3|aac-lc|he-aac|adpcm      m:video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts

I think :?:


I don't really know what the ps and ts means though :?

could you post the whole trace log though, the snippet you posted doesn't quite give the full picture.

@azraraktar Your setup looks correct for the file you posted, except that I'm not sure if DTS-HD MA will match "dtshd". To know for sure, one have to look in the log. Search for "Parsing results" and find the one that is for the file in question. If you use the cache (which you probably do), the parsing results might not be logged because the parsing information from the cache is used - if that's the case, turn off the cache and "browse" to the folder with the file, and it should be logged. Then turn the cache on again.

The excerpt from your log doesn't seem to be about this file. If you had included a bit more of the log (further up), it would say which file it was about. One thing that can be slightly confusing in the log, is that because UMS is multithreaded, several things happen at once - so completely unrelated things may come mixed together. The part in the [square brackets] shows the name of the thread, in this case "HTTPv2 Request Worker 3". When you look further up or down for what happened to the "case you are investigating", disregard everything that's not from the same thread. The reason it doesn't look like the same file is that the file in question has embedded subtitles, and the MediaInfo output you posted does not. The reason the file that is being evaluated is being transcoded, is that the renderer isn't configured to support subtitles track 2 (whatever format/type it is, that part of the log isn't there). I have no idea if your TV actually supports internal subtitles or this particular format, but this is also specified in the renderer configuration (both internal/embedded and external/subtitles file are specified separately).

@both The part we DO see in the log, is the least interesting (except for the first line). What happens is that after UMS determines that the file isn't supported (for some reason), it will pick a format to transcode to (Usually MPEG-TS or MPEG-PS). The same "resolving process" will then be performed for the transcoded format, which is what we see in the log. Unless the configuration is completely off, this will always find a match, so that part is something I just skip with my eyes when reading ;)

@mik_s MPEG-TS and MPEG-PS are called (MPEG) Transport Stream and (MPEG) Program Stream respectively. They are different file formats, both often simply using the .mpeg extension. MPEG-TS is capable of much more than MPEG-PS, but a lot is identical too. I guess you could say that a Transport Stream is a kind of "container" that can contain many program streams. In addition, they can carry lots of extra metadata, like repeating "headers" (which makes them stream-friendly as you don't need to read the start of the stream to know what the content is), EPG tracks, encryption/decryption packets etc. MPEG-TS is very commonly used for TV broadcast (satellite, terrestrial and cable), where multiple radio, TV or data channels are all muxed into one transport stream. The tuner will then demux the stream, read EPG and "channel information" and the pick the tracks it's interested in for the selected channel. This channel is then usually a "program stream" within the transport stream. Some times, a program stream will end when one program ends and another one starts, while other times they "merge" different programs (and commercials) into one long program stream. If they use separate program streams for ads (which is really natural, as it's a different source), it would become much too easy to automatically remove them I guess ;)

So, what now ? Is there no tutorial for this ?
Regarding dtshd and dts, I took them from the defaultrenderer.conf.

Code: Select all

#    dts      Digital Theater Systems                       audio/vnd.dts
#    dtshd    Digital Theater Systems (HD)                  audio/vnd.dts.hd
The TV I'm using is a LG B8.

EDIT:
I solved all problems by adding disable_transcoding = true.
So now all files are played without me having to enter the # transcode # folder and without having to always read the log files. Such a much more comfortable solution !

Hi

I wonder if you can help me, where you say to add " disable_transcoding = true" is that to the bottom of the UMS configuration file in General Settings tab? Is that all I have to add or do I have to add one of the other configs posted here? This is for an OLED65C9 and UMS 9.4.1

My kids are doing my head in about this so any help would be greatly apprciated.

Many thanks

Hi mate,
sorry for answering so late.
I added the disable_transcoding = true to the LG_webos config file we were talking about here :)

I wanted to know if native WebOS media player on LG tvs, support streaming of movies with EXTERNAL subtitles present in folder where the movie is - via DLNA only embedded ones seems to be working can i do it with UMS?
