    Default [samsung c650] playing film stops, mezzmo/tv jumps to next file

    Hi!

    It's me again

    I'm playing film thru Mezzmo to my TV - Samsung LE46C650, after 10-20 seconds, film stops and Mezzmo plays next file.
    File is transcoded realtime (with speed of >35fps, so there is no 'buffer underrun'.
    ffmpeg can transcode that film without problems (i can run ffmpeg.exe without problems with that film)
    Maybe it's a problem with TV (tv stops responding etc., then Mezzmo plays next file) ?

    I'm sending you logs by email.

    Regards,
    razor

    Hi,

    Thanks for the logs.

    One thing to try is to play around with the "contentlength" parameter in the device profile. It takes values from 0 to 3 (inclusive) and even 4, but that requires a bit more modification of the device profile itself. Can you please try changing the contentlength from 0 to 3 (restart the server after each change of course) and see if that helps?

    Hi,
    I am evaluating Mezzmo software and I am experiencing the same issue described by razor on my Samsung UE40C6500UP TV set.
    It is limited to "some" mkv files and this behaviour is really annoying. I experienced the same issue using Samsung PC Share Manager and that was a reason for looking to an alternative software. I was trying to apply your advice on contentleght parameter but I do not find it! The only parameters associated to "Samsung C" device profile are: connection speed, max video size and video bitrate.
    Do I have to edit a configuration file?
    Thank you in advance!
    Roberto

    Hi Roberto,

    Yes, the "contentlength" is inside the SamsungLA.prf file located in the DeviceProfiles folder (see this thread for its location: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...ofiles-located). If you would like specific instructions on how to edit and change this, please let me know and I'll post them here.

    Hi,

    Have you tried other contentlength values (from 0 to 3)? Do they make any visible difference or all of them feel the same?

    The problem with transcoding is that you need a pretty powerful CPU, since ffmpeg does not support GPU transcoding at the moment.
    Second of all, if you want to transcode your *.mkv containers (which most likely encoded with h264 or ac3) to a format supported by your tv, you'll need a quite extra HDD space (depending on how big and how much bitrate your movie has, you need temp storage ~ 20 to 100GB). This is because your movie needs to be "converted" to format like mpeg or avi which can be pretty big in size (not as big as mpeg though).

    im having exactly the same problem with you, then i tried this

    one solution is to check / tick the option in your transcoding option that says something like "continue transcoding in the background, for previous movie" i dont really know the exact option, since im not in front of my desktop computer. Then try to play your the movie you want to see, then like return back to main menu and wait like 20 mins or 30 mins" then you should be able to watch the entire movie.

    Yes, you are correct. We're also working on optimizing transcoding as much as possible to make it faster, but there's only so much you can squeeze out of FFmpeg. The idea with starting a movie and letting it finish is right - for the time being that's the best way if your CPU doesn't cope with real-time encoding. In a future update we plan to have something that'll help with that even better.

    And yes, please check how much space you've left for temporary transcoded files (20GB by default), as they'll be cleaned up once that limit is hit and you might find yourself transcoding more than needed because of that.

    Hmmm, but thats still not explaining why a restart solve it? And why does it need to transcode .mkv's, it is playable from a memorystick..

    Well, playing files from a memory stick may use another engine (or may not - maybe it's one, some devices have just one internal engine to play files, some have multiple), so it's not guaranteed that if something can be played from a memory stick, it can be played via DLNA (unfortunately). However, in this particular case, it may be due to an issue that we've just discovered and are fixing that may abort or freeze playing even of native files. I'll keep you posted on our progress.
