Thread: Sony BDP BluRay Player Profile

  1. #1

    Default Sony BDP BluRay Player Profile

    I have found something i would consider odd when it comes to the Sony BDP profiles. It seems that if i switch around profiles for my Sony BDP 570 player, i'm able to stream MKV files just fine using one profile, but then i can't play MP4 files. If i switch to a different profile, i'm able to play the MP4 files but not the MKV. It would seem to me that i need a profile that can be configured to do both properly.

    I have found the post on location of profiles and i have edited and made my own profile. I have begun to tinker around with the profile, but haven't found the right combination.

    Is there a post that fully explains the fields in the profile and what they do and how to configure, so we can test? Is it possible to share profile amongst people? Like if someone finds the perfect profile for a device can they share? Is there a place to do this?

    What is odd is that an AVI container using MP4 and AAC/AC3 work just fine, it just seems the MP4 container with contents listed below won't play on the device.

    What i have found is the following based on FFMpeg Properties of the item that can't play (MP4 files):

    I notice that there are 2 identical "aac" sections in the "mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2" section. Remove one of them and try again. Save your changes and stop/start your Mezzmo server for the change to take effect.

    If no change, then try removing:

    Code:
    		<video>
    					<format id="h264" encode="0">
    					</format>
    		</video>
    from the this section:

    Code:
    		<avcontainer id="mov,mp4,m4a,3gp,3g2,mj2" name="h264aac" encode="0" mimetype="video/mp4" supportschunked="0">
    and that will stop MP4 files with H264 from being streaming natively to your Sony BDP, and they instead will be transcoded to MPEG-TS.

    Thank you Paul! Removing the "h264" section and allowing Mezzmo to do the MPEG-TS transcoding worked perfectly!

    Is there any place for users to share device profiles?

    Thanks,
    Greg
