View Full Version : Video resolution issues

12-30-2009, 05:49 AM
Hi, im new to Mezzmo, but so far i really like it! Great to be able to really get structure on the files shared with my DLNA devices.

Im currentlly using Mezzmo 2.1 Trial version and is putting it to the test against my two Samsung TV's,
One Samsung LED 40'' (UE40B7070) and one Samsung LCD 46'' (LE46B655)
Both televisions are suppose to support a wide viraity of media formats.

In Mezzmo, I have selected the Samsung LA device profile.
When playing video on my tv I do not get a full screen image.
It seems like some black areas are added to the video above and below.
And my guess that the added areas, since they stretch up high above and below the original video, prohibit the TV to change to a good fullscreen viewing.

I have been trying to play around with the device profiles (testing every one in the list) but onthe profiles that were able to play video the screen resolution did not change for the better.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what i could try to make things better?

The video im trying to send is a .AVI (Xvid) file with resolution 624x352
Im also using the included software for the Samsung TV (PC Share Manager 2.3) and this sends the video so that it is shown in full screen on the tv.

Anyone with syggestions?

I'm glad that you like Mezzmo!

Mezzmo is very flexible and you can change video dimensions that it transcodes to by modifying the device profile for your TV (I can give you more details on how to do this if you wish).

Do you know if that format is native to your TV or not? If it's native, then it shouldn't transcode and size shouldn't change, but it's probably missing from the device profile. If you can generate a log file trying to serve that video and send it to support (at) conceiva (dot) com, we'll get you up and running (to generate a log file see this thread: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread.php?t=419)

I sent log files to support.
Yes, I would like to get some help in understanding the device profile settings.
Is there any documentation that could be read about this?
I havent found any so far.
Thanks for reply,

The new version 2.1.2 fixes issues with high-definition video streaming (among other things), so please download the latest update and see if it works better for you.

There is no official documentation on changing the device profiles (yet), but please feel free to ask me and I'll be happy to talk to you about it.
