Have You try sendig without "size" attribute (not required by upnp spec)? Attribute size="-1" is upnp specification violation.
yes, without the size attribute, ps3 starts transcoding the first video found in every folder, something like the 10 first seconds (don't know why, maybe to determine some missing video parameters I guess) So there's a ~5 seconds penalty time each time you enter a folder (it was easy to choose between this and the upnp spec violation :p)
These are my experiences with PMS together with the Philips Aurea LCD-TV 37PFL9903H.
Using PMS together with a (borrowed) PS3 playstation works perfect (the TV connected with HDMI).
But the TV also has a network connection and DLNA (http-get:*:video/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MPEG_PS_PAL) capabilites.
Therefore I have been trying to connect the PMS directly to the TV with the PMS 1.11.356 version.
Just added a file PhilipsAurea.conf with the proper DLNA string from the renderer (TV): "Allegro-Software-WebClient".
Sofar it is simple: PMS recognises TV and TV sees PMS.
First I came across a browsing problem: the files were not correctly displayed at the TV side.
I got very good help from Tomeko (very much appreciated!!) and it turned out to be a bug.
Tomeko provided me a fix, and the browsing on TV is OK now. (You can read their remarks in these posts)
What are the experiences with playing video?
The TV can work natively with MPEG-2 and this works fine.
Selecting a common MPG video (or VOB file) plays fine (but without using transcoding).
Also a MPG with high resolution (1920x1080) content plays fine with good quality.
(This high resolution was made by converting a HD demo to MPG with Movavi
Any other formats, avi, m2ts, etc. do not play native.
But currently I am stuck because I cannot get the video transcoding playing.
(The only transcoding that really works is Audio with MPlayer as transcoder
When I select such video in the #-Transcode-# folder on TV then I see multiple options (Mencoder, Avisynth, tsMuxer, etc).
The TV-PMS tries every combination, but stops with each attempt after few seconds (sometimes short with a black TV screen).
In the transcript I see all the attempts "Starting transcoding/remux of ...". No errors seen in the debug.log file.
Of cause I tried all kind of settings in the PhilipsAurea.conf file.
In this Tomeko helped much with suggestions, but no playing video on Aurea TV via transcoding yet.
For me it is like a "black box".
I wonder how to get a working PMS-TV configuration in a more systematic way?Any experiences or suggestions?
