Yeah, my TV is a bit older I'm afraid. On the other hand, I haven't tried lately so maybe I ought to give it a go. I'll let you know how it works out!

My roommate's smart tv doesn't seem to support transcoding at all, just the TSMuxer streams. It has yet to fail to play something, but will sometimes lag if a scene goes above the limit on its WiFi connection.

Weird transcoding happening lately on my WDTV. My wife wanted to watch a series episode (mp4 file, supported for serving directly) and my WDTV rejected it. So when I started triaging it, I found that the log reflected:

Code: Select all

So when I saw that the detected container was mov, I checked the file with MediaInfo 0.7.64 and this is what I found:

Which left me wondering if there's any issue with the mediainfo parsing code somewhere mixing container types?
Thx, Wolf

Found some additional clues on the logs. Posted at viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1168&p=7165#p7165 as I can't upload log files here.

This version is working quite well for me so far both with local media and Jumpy access to XBMC, better than it has in a while. Thanks a bunch and keep up the hard work.
Peace!
