Question2: is there any chance that the Notify method will be implementen in PMS? Can I make a request?


ok, here's an ugly hack. If you're using latest beta, drop this file in the same directory as PMS.exe, and restart:

http://ps3mediaserver.org/files/patchnotify/update.jar


Thanks Shagrath,
Unfortunately, this does not work too. Neither does the trick of Tomeko (next post) in changing the extensions.
Same problem: if I click on a media file/folder in the Transmux folders the TV says: "No readable files".
So the virtual Transmux folders seems to be empty.

I did add the debug.log and the PhilipsAurea.conf files in the attachment for inspection.
In the comment of the conf you find some info on native capabilities.
I do know know whether this is interesting, but he protocol string is (for mpeg2) :
http-get:*:video/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MPEG_PS_PAL

Thanks for the help!

well, maybe it's a matter of extension like tomeko said. If you want to apply a specific extension for your transcoded files, add in your renderer conf file:

Code: Select all
UseSameExtension=vob

I did try both
Code: Select all
UseSameExtension=vob
and
Code: Select all
UseSameExtension=mpg
.
Same problem: all folders in the Transcode (seen at TV) are empty.

I saw another strange thing at detection of renderers:
When starting PMS its says first "No PMS" (red circle with cross) and after that it shows the detected PhilipsAurea renderer.
(In the past I have seldomky seen a green triangle "No PMS, but rendere found").
Can this No PMS before finding the TV renderer influence a setting of PMS?

karl123, what file types are plaing after changing extension to .mpg (from our PM) ?
If you have red cross, kill all javaw.exe proceses or restart computer.

Tomeko, Did kill multiple javaw processes. No effect on problem.

The .VOB files are playing after changing extension to .mpg .
But ONLY those outside the Transcode folder.
Inside the Transcode folder all folders are empty as usual.
(These .VOB files jhave been copied from a DVD.)

Another behaviour I do not understand:
If I put in the Conf file the option (forcefully streamed as is and not transcoded)
Code: Select all
StreamExtensions=mpg

then all files are still visible as empty folders in the virtual Transcode folder.

I think, that Philips can play files with .mpg (or .vob) extension in <res> tag. Stream must be MPEG2-PS (MPEG_PS_PAL) - from http://certification.dlna.org/certs/REG37557605.pdf. MPlayer/MEncoder can produce MPEG2-PS strem if you set TranscodeVideo = MPEGAC3
We don't have Philips TV, so You must test any configurations/file types/file extension and give us feedback...

Thanks Tomek. (PS What do you mean with "<res> tag"? A conf setting?)
Did do some homework:

Did first a CLEAN install:
- Clean image Windows XP x86 sp3
- PMS 1.11.356
- vlc-0.9.8a-win32
- Avisynth_258
- Copy vsfilter.dll in avisybth plugin folder

Added file PhilipsAurea.conf in renderer folder
Used simple transcode settings:
TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3
TranscodeAudio=PCM

The PMS detects the PhilipsAurea renderer properly (most times with red cross)
The PhilipsAurea TV sees the server properly

What is working
- Any .VOB file, but only IF visible
- Video_TS.VOB file (mpeg2 AC3 according to tsMuxer)
- All photos
- All sounds
- .mpg (mpeg2 AC3 according to tsMuxer)

What is NOT working
- Any folder in any Transcode folder is always empty!
- DVD video folders if only ...[ISO Image] ... is visible
- .mpg (h.264 according to tsMuxer)
- .avi (xvid according to GSpot)
- .avi (h264 according to GSpot)
- .wmv (video/x-ms-asf according to GSpot)
- .mkv (h.264 AC3 SRT's according to tsMuxer)
- .m2ts (h.264 AC3 according to tsMuxer)

See PhilipsAurea.conf and debug.log in attachment for inspection.
Question: most test files were downloaded and content is not always reliable. Is a testset of reliable video files available for testing?

karl123, try add to .conf file:
MimeTypesChanges=video/mp4=video/mpeg
TranscodeExtensions=avi,wmv,mkv
karl123 wrote:PS What do you mean with "<res> tag"? A conf setting?

It is message from server to renderer with URL and media type info. It looks like this (from your TVersity -> Philips transmission):
Code: Select all
<res protocolInfo="http-get:*:video/mpeg:*" duration="00:05:32.000" resolution="1920x1080" size="806021988">
http://192.168.1.101:41952/geturl/philips.demo.colors.of.miami.1080i.tp.mpg%3ftype%3dvideo%252fmpeg%26url%3dfile%253a%252f%252fc%253a%252fdocuments%2band%2bsettings%252farie%252fmy%2bdocuments%252fmy%2bvideos%252f%26title%3dphilips.demo.colors.of.miami.1080i%26ext%3d.mpg
</res>

Only protocolInfo and file extension in url describe file type. PMS sends real file name with extension, so changing file extension to .mpg may cheat Philips TV.

shagrath, is UseSameExtension= modify <dc:title> tag only?

Did add those settings to philipsaurea.conf file.
Again the transcoding is not working and the folders in the virtual #-Transcode-# folder are still empty (except for real VOB files).
(Transcoding is working for Audio (Mplayer coder) but never for video.)

Another strange issue occurred after adding those settings:
Most folders (exept with dvd VOB content) on the PC with video files are empty when browsing them on the TV.
Before only the folders in the virtual #-Transcode-# folder were empty.
