Custom Mencoder settings at renderer level

Post by nonolk » Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:13 pm

Hi UMS Team,

First of all, I want to say thank you very much for your last release, which is really the best ever.
Thank you also for all the work you did on this project.

For me there is just a big but, since a while the custom mencoder options at renderer level are not anymore working.
You can say why do you need it , you can put it in the normal custom mencoder options.

I'm using 3 diffrents renderer one Sony Bravia KDL40EX500, one Sony BDP-S590 and an Onlyo TXNR 609, and I want to be able to use one DNLA server to serve both. But the Sony Bravia need some mencoder options in order to Display properly some video ( (width/height < 1.75 || width/height > 1.79) :: -vf expand=::::1:16/9), if I put it in the expert mencoder options it work for the Bravia TV, but it produce some compressed video on the Sony BDP-S590.

I tried a lot of diffrent options, but none worked except to switch back to a really old PMS version (1.52.1) which was for me the last version where it worked fine.

Best regards,

In past I already reported that custom mencoder settings on renderer level is ignored in most recent versions :? I vote for a fix too 8-)
About the artifacts, check your original post for an answer.

Found a root cause of this bug :mrgreen:
https://github.com/UniversalMediaServer ... java#L1484

Code: Select all

if (rendererMencoderOptions.contains("expand=") || dvd) {
	rendererMencoderOptions = null;
}
We should use "&&" instead of "||" :idea:
