    Default Chromecast Compatibility & Transcoding

    Hi

    I am still getting incompatibility problems with my Chromecast. I am using a 3rd gen one now but as far as I am aware it has the same capability as my 2nd Gen versions.

    Using the Ultra profile by default - Transcode option selected against the device

    Problem 1 is No Video or Audio - No error shown in the app

    File details are:

    Video
    ID : 0
    Format : MPEG-4 Visual
    Format settings, BVOP : No
    Format settings, QPel : No
    Format settings, GMC : No warppoints
    Format settings, Matrix : Default (H.263)
    Codec ID : XVID
    Codec ID/Hint : XviD
    Duration : 43 min 21 s
    Bit rate : 978 kb/s
    Width : 640 pixels
    Height : 352 pixels
    Display aspect ratio : 16:9
    Frame rate : 23.976 (24000/1001) FPS
    Color space : YUV
    Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0
    Bit depth : 8 bits
    Scan type : Progressive
    Compression mode : Lossy

    Audio

    Format : MPEG Audio
    Format version : Version 1
    Format profile : Layer 3
    Format settings : Joint stereo / MS Stereo

    Alignment : Aligned on interleaves

    Interleave, preload duration : 471 ms
    Writing library : LAME3.93
    Encoding settings : -m j -V 4 -q 2 --abr 136

    I tried to pre-transcode but it ignored the transcoded version and still tried to play the native avi file although not 100% sure if I should have waited until the pre-transcode had finished before i attempted to play.

    On the TV I get the spinning arrow, then I see the file name being streamed, then the Mezzmo logo appears on the TV, thats it.


    Problem 2 - No Video or Audio - Also see error 2100

    Same as above, on the TV I get the spinning arrow, then I see the file name being streamed, then the Mezzmo logo appears on the TV, thats it.

    Have tried with both the normal and Ultra Profiles.

    After transcoding the latter for Ultra Profile (and waiting for it to complete) it still refuses to play.

    For all transcoding I chose the top options, hls h264 aac.

    Lastly with the file below I get video but no audio and my volume controls do function (as in I do not get an message about a receiver, but still no sound)
