Thread: Stream Blu-ray m2ts to Samsung C/BDP doesn't work well

  1. #1

    Question Stream Blu-ray m2ts to Samsung C/BDP doesn't work well

    Streaming a ripped (from my original disc) blu-ray m2ts file with transcoding for the device turned off gets the following:
    • very occasional peep of audio
    • choppy, slide show like, video
    • an occasion ~3 seconds of smooth video with no audio
    • constant flickering of "Preparing to play" in upper right hand corner
    • sometimes after 2 or 3 seconds it simply skips to the next file in the folder


    With transcoding for the device turn on:
    • 2nd or 3rd time you start the movie, it plays. The transcoded file name is: 14250-mkv-libx264-ac3.mzt (25.4gb). Original file: 00485.m2ts (35.1gb) - ffmpeg data below...


    Equipment:
    • Samsung PN50C8000 with firmware 1032
    • Samsung BD-C6900 with firmware 1018.1
    • Gigabit network switch w/gigabit connection on PC
    • Secondary network is WLAN g/n (same results as LAN.)


    Notes:
    1. Mezzmo lists the file 00485.m2ts as 3.18gb instead of the 35.1gb size that Windows Explorer shows it to be.
    2. Mezzmo has no way to select the audio stream inside the m2ts to be used.

    How do I get m2ts files to be streamed without being transcoded and streamed so they are viewable?

    Thanks,
    Marc

    Can you please check if the same file streams using PCSM?

    I think that the bitrate is too high for the device to play it smoothly - in our testing here anything over 20000 kb/s starts to stutter (this is for mpegts containers only).

    I'll try. So far I've had no luck getting the TV or BDP to see PCSM. Must be a firewall issue. I'll have to research it.

    I'll let you know the result when I get to actually try...

    PCSM is a royal PITA. Anyway, it does not recognize m2ts files, so I guess the answer is that it won't stream.

    Yes, it'll need to be transcoded to fit within the limits of the TV's firmware.

    How do I tell Mezzmo to transcode files that don't fit within the limits of the tvs firmware?

    Thanks for the fast response

    It's part of the device profile, so if you have transcoding turned on it should transcode those files. Not all Samsung device profiles have this at the moment, so if it doesn't work for you, chances are your device profile doesn't have this limit yet. In this case, please send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and tell me which device profile you're using (as per the Media Devices dialog in Mezzmo) and I'll send you an update.
