    Default Is there a way to change the resolution on the dlna device?

    Hi,

    We recently installed windows 8.1 and found that we were having trouble connecting with our blue ray player (Panasonic - if it matter, i'll find the product Id).
    So we tried mezzmo and we are quite happy with it.

    Is there a way to change the resolution on the video being streamed to the blue ray player. Some of the videos come out quite small (like it's widescreen but much more black at the top and bottom of the screen).

    Thanks

    Hi alareau,

    The reason could be the wrong device profile assigned to your device. Try setting one of the 'Panasonic BDP' device profiles and see if one of them works better. Go to the Media Devices dialog to set the device profile for a device.

    Also, try editing your device in the Media Devices dialog and go to the Performance tab in the Device Settings dialog. Turn on the 'Adjust aspect ratio' checkbox. Then, go to the Transcoding tab and delete your transcoded files. Try streaming now.

    If no better, then please let us know (i) what Blu-ray player model you are streaming to, (ii) the device profile that is assigned to your device in the Media Devices dialog, and (iii) the FFmpeg information for a video that is displayed small (right-click on the video in Mezzmo and click 'Get FFmpeg Information').

    Hi Paul,

    I currently have the setting 'Panasonic BDP'. I tried the other Panasonic settings but I would always get 'CAnnot play file' in most cases (one just gave me sound - Panasonic Mpeg-TS).

    I've tried your recommendations ('Adjust aspect ratio' & deleting transcoding files) but to no effect.

    I'm not 100% of the model number. I think it's DMP-BDT110 based on the long ESN number in the setup options. (owner's manual refers to DMP-BDT310, 215, 210, 11)


    When we were on windows 7, everything came out fullscreen with the default windows media server (which wasn't always ideal)
    Here's the FFmpeg info of 2 videos.

    First video, very narrow -
