Thread: still a problem with some mkv container files and samsung c-series

  1. #1

    Default still a problem with some mkv container files and samsung c-series

    I'm using the latest version of Mezzmo (2.1.9.0) and my TV is a LE40C579, but there are still some files that won't play. Mezzmo is not trying to transcode them and my TV tells me: "video codec not supported". Maybe you could have a look into the ffmpeg output and give me a hint what the samsung TV doesn't support and change the c-profile to support the files.

    Sorry for the delay. We think we have identified the reason for the MKV problems and expect to release an update by the end of this week. Thanks for your patience.

    If you cannot wait, you can download the previous version - Mezzmo v2.1.8.0 - from http://www.conceiva.com/downloads/mezzmo-setup-2180.exe

    When uninstalling v2.1.9.0, make sure you select the checkbox to keep your Mezzmo library in the uninstaller.

    It's possible that the frame rate of those files (23.98 fps) is not supported by the TV - I've seen a similar thing happen before. At the moment, Mezzmo doesn't support changing the framerate, but that's something which is high on our development to-do list and should be implemented soon.

    To confirm, do you have another MKV file that plays? If you get FFmpeg info on that, what frame rate does it have?

    So i guess it is not the framerate..

    Intreresting... Thanks for posting working FFmpeg info as well! I agree, at first glance the frame rates seem not to matter in this particular case. I'll need to do some more research and get back to you on this.

    Do those files play via Samsung's Share Manager soft?

    No, they don't. Maybe the used codec or some of the encoding options are the problem...

    The H264 codec supports multiple profiles and levels which determine features used by the encoder. It's possible that your video uses either a profile or a level unsupported by your TV. Check which profile (Baseline, High, etc...) and level (3.1, 4.0, etc...) your file used, with Mediainfo: http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en

    Then, check your TV specifications to determine which profile and level are supported.

    Generally speaking, a direct Blue-Ray rip done in High Profile Level 5.1 will not play on a TV or a basic media streamer like the WDTV Live.

    Excellent reference for more info about H264 profiles and levels: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC
