[Solved] Movies won't play anymore after upgrade to 9.5.0

Post by retosch » Sun May 31, 2020 10:12 pm

Hi

After upgrade from 9.4.3 to 9.5.0 transcoding no longer works. According to the attached debug.log-file the following occurs:
- DEBUG 2020-05-31 11:23:40.706 [HTTPv2 Request Worker 12] Reading TranscodeFastStart: true (default: false)
- DEBUG 2020-05-31 11:23:40.722 [HTTPv2 Request Worker 12] Caught exception: null

With 9.4.3 it still works.

On the TV-side ...
- I can see the file but after starting the movie the following error message pops up: can't read/find the file
- going to the # Transcode # folder I can start the movie by choosing "play without transcoding".

Any ideas what wrong?

Thanks retosch, based on your logs I have identified where the problem is and it will be worked on. If you want a temporary fix, it might work to remove "KeepAspectRatio" from your renderer config. You can do that by changing the contents of "renderers/Philips-PFL.conf" to the following:

Code: Select all

RendererName = Philips TV
RendererIcon = philips-pfl.png

# ============================================================================
# This renderer has sent the following string/s:
#
# HTTP User-Agent: Windows2000/0.0 UPnP/1.0 PhilipsIntelSDK/1.4 DLNADOC/1.50
# ============================================================================
#

UserAgentSearch = PhilipsIntelSDK/1.4|Streamium/1.0
UpnpDetailsSearch = Philips TV

TranscodeAudio = WAV
MimeTypesChanges = audio/x-m4a = audio/mp4
TranscodeExtensions = m2ts
MaxVideoBitrateMbps = 75
ShowDVDTitleDuration = true
CreateDLNATreeFaster = true
TranscodeFastStart = true
HalveBitrate = true
MediaInfo = true

# Our Philips PFL-specific notes:

The workaround works indeed. Thanks SubJunk for that and for fixing the bug.

In case it helps to know, it also works by replacing true with false instead of removing the line: KeepAspectRatio = false.

Yes, sure. I meanwhile tested 9.6.1 which still has the same behaviour as 9.5.0.
