    Default Mezzmo now transcoding files that don't need to (WDTV Live)

    Hi,

    Since I upgraded to 2.1.12, files that used to play directly on my WDTV are now being transcoded. Those are plain Xvid+MP3 videos (I tried with different files).

    I checked, and Mezzmo is still correctly using the WDTV Live device profile.

    Here is a sample file:

    Code:
    FFmpeg version SVN-r26071, Copyright (c) 2000-2010 the FFmpeg developers
      built on Dec 22 2010 10:30:32 with gcc 4.4.2

      libavutil     50.35. 0 / 50.35. 0
      libavcore      0.16. 0 /  0.16. 0
      libavcodec    52.100. 0 / 52.100. 0
      libavformat   52.88. 0 / 52.88. 0
      libavdevice   52. 2. 2 / 52. 2. 2
      libavfilter    1.69. 0 /  1.69. 0
      libswscale     0.12. 0 /  0.12. 0
    
    Seems stream 0 codec frame rate differs from container frame rate: 23.98 (65535/2733) -> 23.98 (2997003/125000)
    Input #0, avi, from 'F:\Video\TV\###New\DL\The.Simpsons.avi':

        Stream #0.1: Audio: mp3, 48000 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 128 kb/s
    At least one output file must be specified
    
    
    ---> DB Level Info: -99
    Was anything changed with the WDTV Live profile that might be broken?

    Hi,

    Yes, that format was taken out because of some incompatible files we found. If you wish, just remove the comments around the avi container in the device profile (or send a message to support and I'll send you an updated device profile).

    I un-commented it and restarted the server. Everything back to normal now. Thanks

    We'll do more investigating here and see if we can isolate those AVIs that don't play properly. Glad it's back to normal for you

    Hello Dennis. I am also experiencing something quite similar. Not the WDTV Live, but the Sony Bravia KDL W profile and the Sony Playstation 3 profile.

    My library is almost entirely m2ts files with H264 video and AC3 audio. Prior to the upgrade (2.1.12), on both devices, no transcoding was needed. I managed to fix the Bravia KDL W profile by including the following which was in the old profile:

    <avcontainer id="mpegts" name="mpegts" encode="0" mimetype="video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts" dlnaprofile="AVC_TS_HD_60_AC3_T" supportschunked="0">
    <video>
    <format id="h264" encode="0">
    </format>
    </video>
    <audio>
    <format id="ac3" encode="0">
    </format>
    </audio>
    </avcontainer>

    I need some help with the Playstation 3 profile. It's pretty involved, much more so than the Bravia as near as I can tell. Short of replacing the profile with the old one in the Backup directory, do you know what I might be able to edit in or out of that profile given the nearly default library I have? Thanks.
