Thread: FFMPEG 100% when transcoding DTS

  1. #1

    Default FFMPEG 100% when transcoding DTS

    Hi

    Firstly, I've spent a couple of months struggling with 2 of your competitor media servers and I am further ahead in one evening with Mezzmo than all the time spent with the others. There's clearly an incredible amount of work and research that has gone into the device profiles. I amazed that you've got my LG LE 8900 2010 TV to work as I know it's a real pig and calls itself DLNA, but scratch beneath the surface and its only for JPEG support. It doesn't even register in device spy as a uPNP device......so well done cracking product.

    So my issue.
    FFMPEG is screaming away at 100% when transcoding DTS > AC3. I can stream an AVCHD/H264 with AC3 either m2ts or MKV no problem. FFMPEG ticks over between 0-10%. The computer is an i7 920 6GB RAM, striped SSDs 4TB of standard disk running Windows 7 x64 so PC grunt is not the problem.

    Here's one that streams beautifully:

    Hello Andy,

    Thank you for the positive feedback - we appreciate it!

    The second file is doing a full transcode, thus FFmpeg is using as much CPU as it can get. The first file is a simple remux, where we keep the video as-is and just transcode the audio. I'm not sure that the TV supports VC1 video. One way to test is to turn off transcoding and see if the file plays (with or without audio - doesn't matter). Alternatively, if you could upload it (or a smaller, but similar sample) to a site like www.megaupload.com, I could test it here and see if it could be supported natively on the TV or not.

    Dennis thanks..

    So..I don't think it's an issue with VC1.

    With transcoding disabled, the HD m2ts good and bad files play albeit, stuttering and buffering like crazy. I guess you're lowering the levels and remuxing into a suitable container.

    I have also got the bad file remuxed into an MKV (just the H264 and the 1 DTS audio track). The file plays very smoothly without transcoding.

    The moment I turn on transcoding, whether m2ts or MKV, if it has to transcode the audio from DTS to AC3, all six cores will max out to 100%.

    Thx

    Andy

    Andy,

    Generally audio transcoding is very quick and not CPU-intensive.

    In the case of the particular file above, the CPU usage is caused by doing a full transcode of the VC1 video stream? If you remux an h264 video stream into an MKV, then Mezzmo will also remux it, if needed, which is not CPU intensive (or just stream it natively, if it fits within the device profile).

    Can you please post FFmpeg information on the file that you've remuxed the above file to? It doesn't have an h264 video stream, at least in the FFmpeg information you've posted, so it'd be interesting to see what the resulting file actually is.

    Dennis,

    sorry I'm getting my H264s and VC-1s mixed up. You're right my remux is simply a .vc1 & .dts in an MKV container.

    Here is the media info and FFMPEG output for the same VC1 file in the m2ts & mkv container.

    In summary:
    the mkv plays fine when not transcoding but no sound
    the m2ts plays but buffers and stutters like crazy when not transcoding & no sound

    so maybe I could tweak the LGTV profile so VC1 is not transcoded but everything else takes place to ensure smooth delivery.

    What do you think? If a good idea would be grateful for a snippet of xml

    Thx

    Andy,

    It appears that you've cut out some information from the FFmpeg output, which is what I need more than MediaInfo, so I don't know the exact bitrates for those files, but I'll take a guess.

    Try editing the LGTV.prf (let me know if you need help on how to do this) and change the "matroska" container to be like:

    Code:
            <avcontainer id="matroska" name="mkv" encode="0" mimetype="video/x-matroska" preferredtranscoded="0" format="matroska" supportschunked="0" level="51">
                    <video>
                            <format id="mpeg4" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </video>
                    <video>
                            <format id="h264" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </video>
                    <video>
                            <format id="mpeg2video" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </video>
    		<video>
    			<format id="vc1" encode="0">
    				<maxbitrate>15000000</maxbitrate>
    			</format>
    		</video>
                    <audio>
                            <format id="ac3" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </audio>
                    <audio>
                            <format id="aac" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </audio>
                    <audio>
                            <format id="mp3" encode="0">
                            </format>
                    </audio>
            </avcontainer>
    This will add VC1 support to MKVs, but force files with VC1 video that's higher than 15Mbit/s to be transcoded.

    Also, change "vc1" format in "mpegts" container to be like:

    Code:
    		<video>
    			<format id="vc1" encode="0">
    				<maxbitrate>15000000</maxbitrate>
    			</format>
    		</video>
    Unfortunately current FFmpeg cannot encode VC1, so we cannot remux it either, thus all VC1 files that have high bitrates will have to be fully transcoded to h264.

    Turn transcoding back on and see what this produces and please let me know how it goes.

    Hi Derek,

    Applied those changes, but same problem - 100% CPU with that VC-1 file.

    I tried a different movie - remuxed H264 + dts in a MKV and it played perfectly. Around 5-8%CPU transcoding the audio only.

    So there's no way we can passthrough the VC-1 stream completely and just transcode the audio??

    BTW. Here's the full FFMEP output from the VC-1 file.

    Yes, as I said, FFmpeg cannot encode VC1 at the moment, thus they cannot be remuxed like h264. Hopefully a future build of FFmpeg will allow encoding VC1 - we are constantly building new FFmpeg's to see what has changed and Mezzmo updates always come with the latest build.

    Hi Dennis

    Purely on the strength of this support, you got my 30 bucks this evening (before you put the price up ;-) )

    Can I be cheeky and shoot you a few quick questions

    Am I right in making the following assessment on subtitles:
    BD .sup files, no support. Support for .srt when labelled correctly and put in the same folder. Looking to support embedded subtitles in future release.

    Request for Nvidia CUDA and latest Intel CPU support for VC1 to H264 conversion.

    What is the LG LE TV xml profile in the latest build? I have an LE8900 but it seems to be using the regular LGTV . Could the LE profile be a child of the LGTV parent??

    I’ve selected nice internet album art for video titles. Shows in the Mezzmo interface, but doesn’t in the LG TV interface. Am I doing something dumb or is it just a constraint of the TV.

    When fast forwarding too far ahead, the movie often bombs out and goes back to the beginning or the next film. Is that to be expected with only a partially transcoded file?

    I want to see if the LG can handle any kind of chapter meta data. Shall I follow the Samsung sticky – i.e. could the same process be theoretically followed.

    Anything interesting in the FFMPEG build released yesterday?
