    Default iPad 2, DLNA clients and transcoding-confused

    All,
    I've came back to ,and paid for, Mezzmo.I have an iPad 2.It is running on IOS 4.3.4 , which means I cannot jailbreak it to use it for the likes of XBMC <sob>. I have a few DLNA clients on the iPad, mainly media:connect and Buzzplayer.Both have problems playing/streaming files from Mezzmo.I have changed the profile setting to Alpha Player (iPad) and the speed to 54G wireless (to be on the safe side). None of the two will play a .vob file (see below for FFmpeg info). However, if I take transcoding OFF for all devices, both clients can work. This is not great as any files that DO need transcoding, I've had it!
    Both these clients will play the same file no problems in PS3 Media Server. If I switch transcoding back ON, same thing happens again.What I dont understand is why Mezmmo is transcoding a file that it obviously doesn't need to.Comments would be welcome as I think I'm missing something here! :-)

    Can you please confirm that when you turn transcoding off in Mezzmo, the file you posted FFmpeg info for plays on the iPad? It didn't support MPEG2 files previously, so that's why they're being transcoded. Perhaps the newer iOS version or the player you are using are now more advanced in terms of file format support.

    Please send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and we'll send you a new device profile to try.

    Hi guys,
    Any update on a specific profile for an iPad2? I know we have been conversing by email but I think others would benefit from this thread having a bump. PS3MS works fine but Mezzmo 2.4.2 still doesn't want to play ball

    cheers
