Conf Files Tutorial

Post by abominalizer » Tue Jun 12, 2018 11:44 pm

Can you guys make a quick tutorial how to edit, and what to add to the conf files for transcoding?

Valib helped me on the last file, but I'd like to do it on my on.

This is the file that doesnt work outside of the no transcode folder.

Image

And these are my transcode options.
What should I add? and where to looking for it?

Code: Select all

H264Level41Limited = false
DefaultVBVBufSize = true
SeekByTime = true
ChunkedTransfer = true
MediaInfo = true
MaxVideoWidth = 3840
MaxVideoHeight = 2160
SupportedVideoBitDepths = 8,10

# Supported video formats:
Supported = f:avi         v:h264|mjpeg|mp4|xvid             a:aac-lc|he-aac|ac3|dts|mp3|mpa            m:video/avi
Supported = f:mkv         v:h264|h265|mp4|mpeg2|vp8|vp9     a:aac-lc|he-aac|ac3|dts|mp3|mpa|vorbis     m:video/x-matroska
Supported = f:mov         v:h264|h265|mp4                   a:aac-lc|he-aac                            m:video/quicktime
Supported = f:mp4|m4v     v:h264|mp4                        a:aac-lc|he-aac                            m:video/mp4
Supported = f:mpegps      v:mpeg1|mpeg2                     a:ac3|lpcm|mpa                             m:video/mpeg
Supported = f:mpegts      v:h264|mpeg2|h265                 a:aac-lc|he-aac|ac3|dts|eac3               m:video/mpeg
Supported = f:wmv|asf     v:wmv|vc1                         a:wma                                      m:video/x-ms-wmv

# Supported audio formats:
Supported = f:mp3   m:audio/mpeg
Supported = f:oga   m:audio/ogg
Supported = f:wav   m:audio/L16
Supported = f:wma   m:audio/x-ms-wma

The clue gives you the log. You can found e.g. for the MKV format

Code: Select all

[HTTPv2 Request Worker 1] net.pms.configuration.FormatConfiguration Audio codec "dtshd" failed to match support line f:mkv      v:h264         a:aac-lc|ac3|mp3                           m:video/x-matroska
and you see that the Audio codec "dtshd" failed to match support line and some lines after that

Code: Select all

[HTTPv2 Request Worker 1] net.pms.dlna.DLNAResource File "xxxxxx.mkv" will not be streamed because it is not supported by the renderer
So if there is no other reason like internal or internal subs not supported by renderer than you should add "dtshd" to the audio part of the support line. The same apply to the video codecs.

As I see from your picture there is "1 Audio stream: E-AC-3" so in the log you should find

Code: Select all

[HTTPv2 Request Worker 1] net.pms.configuration.FormatConfiguration Audio codec "eac3" failed to match support line f:mkv      v:h264         a:aac-lc|ac3|mp3                           m:video/x-matroska
How to continue I already described. The list of supported codecs and formats tags you can find in the DefaultRenderer.conf

From what I can see from the log, the file is a MKV. The matching attempts you see in the log is first for the file without transcoding (the "mkv" match attempts). Then when it has decided to transcode, it also checks if the transcoded format is supported - which is when you get the "mpegts" match attempts. The latter match attempts are thus of no real interest, it's not the "supported line" for mpegps/ts you need to modify, it's the one for mkv. When the file has been transcoded to mpegps, the audio has also been transcoded so it's no longer EAC3 anyway ;)

The result when you add "eac3" as a supported audio codec in MKVs for your renderer is that UMS will send the file as it is. Whether this will result in success of failure depends on whether the renderer can actually handle this format/codec combination, so the file might fail to play after you do this.

So seeing that the MKV is not supported what do I need to add to the conf file?

If your TV supports MKV with EAC-3, you should add "eac3" to the "a:" part of the supported line where "f:" is "mkv". If your TV doesn't support it, you must leave it as it is so that the file is transcoded.

The line in question is the one referred by this log line:
