    Default disable h264 for panasonic 2011

    Hi,

    I do own a Panasonic TX-L32GW20, which is supported via the "Panasonic Viera (2011 Models)" , PanasonicViera2011.prf.
    TV in connected via 100MBit to PC, Athlon x3 435 (triple core, 2.7 GHZ)
    Running mezzmo 3.4.2.0 (just bought it....)

    I do have films showing like the following ffmpeg info:

    If I just run this film, the film is stuttering in certain scenes (slow camera panning)


    I now did pre-transcode to all three available formats that I was able to select
    avi --> video mpeg4, audio mp3
    mpeg --> video mpeg2video, audio ac3
    mpegts --> video h264, audio ac3

    I now did stream all three of them to the TV.
    AVI --> a lot of compression artefacts , no good
    mpeg --> looks good !!
    mpegts --> still the stuttering

    So looks like the TV is issue with the mpegts/h264 format

    Can you update a device profile, so that mezzmo would be forced to stream in mpeg/mpeg2video. Or can I somehow select a preferred output ?

    Pre-Transcoding is NOT a good option as:
    - there is still no automatic pre-transcoding option !?
    - the mpeg files do grow quite large ....

    Here is the ffmpec command from pre-transcoding - PC manges around 117 fps, so should be good to transcode on the fly.

    There are a couple of variants of the 'Panasonic Viera TV (2011 models)' device profile - namely, 'Panasonic Viera (2011 models, DTS)' and 'Panasonic Viera (2011 models, NTSC)'. Try each of these and see if your get a better outcome.

    Hi,

    I tried all three of them - all with the same result of a stuttering picture
    I even moved the bitrate slider to the left - no change
    Also tried the "Panasonic Viera" and "Panasonic Viera 2009" - but those did not display the picture correct at all

    I finally did remove following section from "panasonic viera 2011"

    <avcontainer id="mpegts" name="mpegts" mimetype="video/vnd.dlna.mpeg-tts" encode="1" dlnaprofile="MPEG_TS_SD" preferredtranscoded="1" supportschunked="0" level="41">
    <video>
    <format id="mpeg1video">
    </format>
    <format id="mpeg2video">
    </format>
    <format id="h264" encode="1" codec="libx264" ffmpegadditional="h264+encoding" preferredtranscoded="1">
    <copyts>0</copyts>
    <samequality>0</samequality>
    <bitrate>8000000</bitrate>
    <maxbitrate>24000000</maxbitrate>
    </format>
    </video>
    <audio>
    <format id="ac3" encode="1" codec="ac3" preferredtranscoded="1">
    <channels>2</channels>
    <channels>6</channels>
    <bitrate>448000</bitrate>
    <maxbitrate>448000</maxbitrate>
    <minbitrate>64000</minbitrate>
    <samplingrate>48000</samplingrate>
    </format>
    <format id="aac">
    </format>
    <format id="mp3">
    </format>
    <format id="mp2">
    </format>
    </audio>
    <ffmpegadditional id="union+thread0" />
    </avcontainer>


    Now the option to pre-transcode to h264 is gone, and film is showing ok on TV. TV is showing MPEG2-PS now
    Any better solution ?

    And today , after the update to 3.4.3, I did have to stop/start the server already a couple of times as TV did say like "Connection to server failed"
    But I did not get any "crash report" or something like that

    I will send the mail
    plus:
    looks like the "Connection to server failed" is just a intermittend issue --> also just a retry on TV does help .... no idea

    We have fixed the "Connection to server failed" with v3.4.3 and replaced the Mezzmo v3.4.3 Auto Update package and Mezzmo full installer on our web site.

    If you have already applied the v3.4.3 update, then please download the full installer from our web site (www.mezzmo.com) and run it (do not uninstall your existing Mezzmo). When the Mezzmo installer prompts you to do a Repair, click Yes. After the repair has completed, your Mezzmo v3.4.3 will be up-to-date and the issues should be fixed.

    Please DONT fix it replacing the old Profiles (the normal and the DTS profile) - this seems more like a problem with some of the 2011 Models. My E5E works flawless with any h264 file I have come across! If you wanna "fix" this - please with another device profile, not replacing the original one!

    Understand. We did not replace the old device profile - but created a new one specifically for the user
