Thread: Panasonic Viera .avi trouble

  1. #1

    Default Panasonic Viera .avi trouble

    I've ran into a problem with a whole bunch of .avi files.
    The issue is, that after a few seconds of playing it starts to pixelate, skip ahead, and some weird stop and go. After 10-30 seconds it comes to a complete stop.

    After checking a lot of different avi's from different sources i have narrowed it down to those that use mp3 as audio codec. never had this problem with files using ATSC A/52 / AC-3.

    But on the other hand, 50% of those using mp3 work perfektly. So i'm not sure thats the problem. After looking at the properties of the files, the audio codec is the only difference i could find.


    Any suggestions?
    I am using the Panasonic Viera (2011 models) device profile, my tv is tx42gt30y
    btw, mezzmo is a really nice program

    It's possible that they are encoded in a way that makes the TV's built-in player fail. Please try pre-transcoding them in Mezzmo and use forced transcoding (select "Force full transcode" and "Transcode files matching" checkboxes).

    I could not find the checkboxes you suggested, but was able to pretranscode the file by rightclick->pretrans->check the tv and the box "pretrans even if match the devices supported formats"

    And was able to play the file afterwards. But now i am missing the .srt subtitles?

    The "Force full transcode" is in the dialog where you select formats (when you click on the link in the pre-transcode dialog). The other checkbox you found - I just didn't name it properly in my reply

    Subtitles are only supported for AVI (DivX) files on the Viera, thus you won't see them when transcoding (since files are transcoded to MPEG-TS). We can try and add AVI transcoding as well and see if that helps - we'll need to test if it works here first.
