    Default HDMI Dongle

    Hi I have a cheapy hdmi dongle, and it can stream files fine but when certain files have information filled out / populated from the internet the file fails to send to the device, if I delete the text out of the "Actor" box then the file will stream again..

    is there anyway to block sending the text to the dlna renderer ? i see there is a option to disable folder artwork but none for the video metadata text

    There is an attribute textlimit that can be added to the name tag in the profile to limit the amount of text sent in the description field if this is the field causing the problem. You can see the Panasonic Viera (2012 Models) profile for an example of this.

    Thanks that fixed it.

    What profile would you suggest for an android 4.0 dongle, the android honeycomb, vlc and playstation 3 profiles work ok, but I was hoping there was a better one.

    For an android device it depends upon the app you are using to view the content, if you are using the Mezzmo app I recommend using the Conceiva Mezzmo (Android) profile.

    it's an hdmi dongle (based on some rockchip cpu) it doesn't have any usable interface, basically just a dlna and screen mirror device, I can't install apps on it or anything, I used to have adb access to it when accessing a hidden cgi script but some recent update disabled it, so I know its based on android 4.0.2 and probably uses the standard android mediaplayer.

    I did manage to capture a update img before, and found a media_profile.xml and media_codecs.xml in the linux image

    For video it looks like only mp4 is supported from the media profiles information. Can you try playing some different formats on the device like mkv, avi and mpeg to see if they play using the current profile you have selected?

    yeah Im pretty sure it could playback mkv and other formats too, maybe media_profiles is used for something else .

    the CPU in it is the Rockchip RK2928G so it should have hardware support for whatever is built into that

    There's no information on supported containers but for codecs it looks like mpeg, mpeg4 and h264 are supported which most files are encoded with. Let us know if you find a file which does not play.
