View Full Version : Support for AVCHD Lite (videos from Panasonic ZS7/TZ10 digital camera)

07-07-2010, 10:54 PM

I am very new to Mezzmo. Just installed it today to try it out. Howerver, I am having problems at playing videos from my digital camera (Panasonic ZS7/TZ10) that I have shared over the network.
The videos can simply not play. If I move the videos to the other PC, the videos plays just fine. But not when being shared by Mezzmo.

About AVCHD: "AVCHD utilizes MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AVC) video compression codec and either Dolby AC-3 (Dolby Digital) or linear PCM audio compression codec."

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVCHD

So my question is: Does Mezzmo support AVCHD and will I be able to play the videos? Or is there anything I can do to make it work?

Hi Ulrik,

Can you please tell me to which device you're trying to stream those files?

Also, please post FFmpeg information on one of those files (in Mezzmo, right-click on the file and use the "Get FFmpeg Information" menu item).

Hi Dennis,

I am trying to stream AHCHD (Lite) videos (recorded by the Panasonic ZS7/TZ10) to my (european) Samsung LED LCD TV UE40C6005 which support DLNA.

FFmpeg information from one of those videos are:

Thanks for the info - please send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and I'll send you an updated device profile to try for the Samsung with support for those files.

Thanks Dennis. An message was sent to the above email address.

Thank you for the email, Dennis. I will try it out as soon as possible and return with some feedback :D

Hi Dennis,

Let me start by saying that I did not try the updated profile that you sent to me by mail. I installed Mezzmo on another computer and now it works perfectly. The first PC must have be crappy lol.
One thing that I am especially very happy about is that Mezzmo can show the folders that are shared instead of only the files (you know, holiday photos and videos for +10 years represents some files!) :)

Thank you for you help so far!

I will do some more testing (I am new to DLNA) with Mezzmo. If everything works out fine I will buy Mezzmo :)

Thanks - let me know how it goes.

AVCHD Lite identifies a subset of AVCHD format, in which HD-recording is limited to 720p/30. The 720p/30 video is recorded in the normal AVCHD 720p/60 format, but every other frame is duplicated, resulting in thirty actual frames per second. This frame rate limitation stems from the capabilities of the camera sensor, it's not a limitation of the format (as normal full-fledged AVCHD is used as the storage format).

Thanks for the information. However, there is no need to convert the videos files (in AVCHD Lite format) as they play (streams) perfectly by Mezzmo.
