Thread: cant pause/FF/REW/skip on samsung TV

  1. #1

    Default cant pause/FF/REW/skip on samsung TV

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Samsung PS50C6500 plasma. Mezzmo didn't detect my TV and appeared to transcode everything. When this was happening i could pause and skip forward/back, not FF or REW. I could handle this but Mezzmo didn't appear to be using multithreading for H264 Transcode and despite my I7 running @ 4ghz it couldn't keep up with a 720P/2000kb/s stream(only just).

    When i select the Samsung C profile ( i assume this is what i should choose) H264 encoded (i haven't tried anything else yet) files are passed straight to the TV. But when this happens i cant pause/ff/rew/skip or anything.

    im guessing this is a limitation of the mediaplayer on the tv?? if it is , is there a way to multithread the H264 transcode and force Mezzmo to transcode these file types. here is an FFprobe of one of the files i was testing with:

    Code:

    thank you for any help



    edit: I will also add, that Mezzmo cant start when there are multiple ipv4 addresses assigned to a single interface (windows 7 64bit). the MezzmoMediaService log has errors saying that it cant find any interfaces to bind to.

    Hi,

    Can you please send a message to support (at) conceiva (dot) com and we'll send you an updated device profile to try.

    Also, if you can send in the logs with the multiple interfaces issue that'd be good as well. Thanks!

    When I play a MKV file on my Samsung C profile TV, I can click the "forward" button but it only goes forward about 10-15 seconds. I have an updated SamsungLA.pref I was sent from support, and using this it does the same thing. Were you able to fast forward and rewind as normal with your files?

    If you hold the forward button down it should start going forward in larger increments.

    since updating to the last Mezzmo and thus replacing the custom device profile i am finding that some high def video are having random pauses. this video is being transcoded but it still happens after the file is completely transcoded.

    I can no longer download the orginal profile i was sent via email and i dont know where i put it. ( when you have 14tb of disc space sometimes things get lost.....lol)

    my issue is somewhat similar. Mezzmo 2.12 to Samsung C550 plasma. All files were being transcoded using the Samsung C profile (with buffering pauses) until I turned transcode off and pass the AVI straight to my C550. But two different files behave differently and I am interested in why.

    Skip/Pause/Rewind work in movie A, but not in Movie B. Only difference i can see is the framerate.

    Is there a manual recode we can do to fix the movie so it plays with FF/Pause. Mainly Pause being so useful. I can set my pc do do a batch of recodes when Im at work.

    Do you mean it pauses during playback, loads up some data and then resumes playing? What sort of a network connection do you have?

    The device profiles should be in a backup folder that'll be located under the DeviceProfiles folder.

    Yes, most probably it's the frame rate and we'll be looking at getting that implemented in Mezzmo as well.

    Pre-transcoding is another feature scheduled for the next major update, hopefully out in Q1 of 2011
