First of all, i'm trying to set my chromecast with PMS. The chromecast have a very limited range of supported codec:
- Code: Select all
Video codecs: H.264 High Profile Level 4.1, 4.2 and 5, VP8
Audio decoding: HE-AAC, LC-AAC, CELT/Opus, MP3, Vorbis
Image formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WEBP
Containers: MP4, WebM
I made my own renderer configuration file and i got stuck in the TRANSCODING AND MUXING CAPABILITIES section. More specifically, at the parameter called TranscodeVideo.
I understand that i must choose one of the 4 profiles, but the profiles doesn't match what i'm looking for.
Is it possible to choose my own video AND audio codec?
I want to use H.264 AND AAC rather than H.264 and AC-3.
I installed FFmpeg since it's supposed to be the best mkv transcoder. Would it be a setting done directly on that application?
Sorry if it was asked before but tried to google it and use the search option on this forum and didn't find what i was looking for.
TL;DR: Can you create a new transcodeVideo profile?
If you managed to transcode for chromecast, i would be interested in how you did it.
