    Default help with profile. unneccessary transcoding!

    i'm using the samsung bdp profile and watch a lot of mkvs. no problem there but some mkvs are unneccessary transcoded. they all have the audio code 'eac3' in common. i've played the files with transcoding turned off and they work flawlessly. would love to know what i have to change in the profile to prevent these files to transcode so i can rewind etc. thx for your help

    Right-click on one of the files that is transcoded unnecessarily and click 'Get FFmpeg Information'. Post that here or email it to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com.

    ok, i have fixed it by adding
    <format id="eac3">
    </format>
    to the mkv audio section of the profile. Thx anyway!

    You also have the option of disabling all transcoding for your device, if you know the sources won't require it. The device level setting will override the profile and not transcode anything. I do this for all of my Kodi clients and If I run into an issue I fix the source file.
