View Full Version : transcoding png images for LG TV

06-08-2011, 12:49 AM

I'm trying to modify the LGTV.prf to transcode png images to jpeg.
Had no success by now.

Any suggestions for a code snippet?

Just remove this section from the device profile:

<avcontainer id="png" name="png" encode="0" mimetype="image/png" supportschunked="0">
<format id="png" encode="0" mimetype="image/png">
<maxdimensions width="1920" height="1080" />

(and restart the server for the changes to take effect)

Can I ask you why you'd like to transcode them? Did you find that the TV cannot display properly?

Thanks for your answer.

Removed the section and now I get thumbnails. Before they were greyed out.
But full view still doesn't work.
The only working format is jpeg which is natively supported.

So transcoding of images doesn't seem to work at all. (transcoding of movies works)
Tested with gif, tif, bmp and png.

My TV:
LG 32LE7500 (firmware should be up-to-date)

There is some transcoding taking place as there are .mzt-files created in the TranscodingFiles\...\Image folder. These are indeed jpegs.
They are just not handed out to the TV.
