View Full Version : Mezzmo problem with Planet Earth in 1080p.x264 ?

Iím testing Mezzmo, but I have a problem with one movie: Planet Earth in 1080p.x264.mkv. The load time of that movie is around one minute (black screen), it canít show the subtitles and I got pixels errors after a few minutes until Mezzmo breaks down.

I did the test on a PS3 and a Samsung BD-C6800 with the exact same result.
Mezzmo is hosted on my WHS running on 3Ghz E6500 and 4G of memory and media sharing is disabled. All devices are in a wired network.
If I check the CPU load after the movie ended then ffmpeg.exe is eating all the CPU, is the transcoding running all the time?

Has anyone similar problems with some HD movies?

The issues here is that you are transcoding a High Def file. This is what is eating all your CPU. If you stop a file it will continue to transcode in the background so when you go to play it again it will be smooth. We recommend a Quad core processor to transcode high def videos.
