Thread: .Mkv videofiles freeze at specific points

    Default .Mkv videofiles freeze at specific points


    I'm using Mezzmo 2.1.110 to play video files on my Playstation 3. My PS3 is networked via a wired connection to my PC which has the video files stored on external hard drives. My PC is running Windows 7. I have been running previous versions of Mezzmo with absolutely no problems.

    I downloaded the latest version of Mezzmo on 16/10/2010. Now I am having problems playing .mkv files. When playing an .mkv file on my PS3 it will pause and then freeze at a specific point and will not play any further. This happens at different specific times for different .mkv files. For Example: Video file A will always freeze at 3 mins 15 secs. Video file B will always freeeze at 2 mins 35 secs. This is happening for all my .mkv files. I've tested quite a few. I have no issue playing other file types. I suspect this is an issue with the on the fly transcoding.

    I would like to revert back to the previous version of Mezzmo ( as this issue seems to only exist on the latest version. However I cannot find this anywhere on this site or the web.

    Can you please give me some advice here. Could you also provide a link to download the previous version of Mezzmo.

    Thanks in advance............Stan.

    Sounds like that you could have transcode enabled and your system isn't fast enough to transcode on the fly?
    Have you tried disabling transcode if your tv/device can't play it natively?

    Yes, we did change transcoding for the PS3 in the latest version to be a bit slower, but to produce more reliable results (e.g. to crash less when transcoding) and this is probably what is causing this.

    Can you please send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and I'll send out an updated device profile for the PS3 - that should be enough and there shouldn't be a need to revert to an older version. We'll work on getting this transcoding working faster/better for the next release as well.
