On holiday for the rest of the week, but I can certainly sort you out with that when I get back.

Here are some traces of successful requests from the BDP-S370 to Windows Media Player. Hopefully WorldofHurt can make sense of them...

It looks like there's a certificate exchange going on (is this using HTTPS?) and I also noticed that the JPEG rendering is really fast compared to when using PS3MS which feels almost like downloading a picture from a modem.

(traces removed now that WorldOfHurt has them). If any other devs want them, PM me.

Cheers, patters.

Now I've just got to trawl this and work out what's going on...

I'll post back what I find over the next few days.

Hi patters,
You suggest following parameters for the BDP-Sx7x.conf :
#specs taken from http://www.sony.co.uk/product/blu-ray-d ... nicalSpecs
MediaInfo=true
Supported = f:mpegps|mpegts v:mpeg1|mpeg2|mp4|h264 a:ac3|lpcm|aac|mpa m:video/mpeg
Supported = f:avi|divx v:divx|mp4 a:ac3|lpcm|mpa|mp3 m:video/avi
Supported = f:mp4 v:mp4|h264 a:ac3|aac m:video/mp4
Supported = f:mp3 n:2 m:audio/mpeg
Supported = f:aac n:2 a:(?!alac).+ m:audio/x-m4a
Supported = f:wma n:2 m:audio/x-ms-wma
Supported = f:wav n:2 m:audio/L16
Supported = f:jpg m:image/jpeg


Extract from Sony Technical Specification:
Video
MPEG-1 Video/PS*5, MPEG-2 Video/PS, TS*6 with “.mpg,” “.mpeg”, “.m2ts”, “.mts” extension
DivX with “.avi”, “.divx” extension
MPEG-4 AVC*5 with “.mkv”, “.mp4”, “.m4v”, “.m2ts”, “.mts”
WMV9*5 with “.wmv”,“.asf”
AVCHD*5 format files that are recorded on a digital video camera

Music
MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer III) with “.mp3” extension
AAC*4*5 with “.m4a” extension
WMA9 Standard*4*5 with “.wma” extension
LPCM with “.wav” extension

Photo
JPEG with “.jpg,” “.jpeg” extension


The player does not play coded files such as DRM.
Note 4 : The player does not play coded files such as Lossless.
Note 5 : The player does not play this file format on a DLNA server.
Note 6 : The player can only play standard definition video on a DLNA server.


So for me only
MPEG-2 Video/PS, TS, DivX video formats
MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer III), LPCM audio format
JPEG image format
are support by Sony BDP with a DNLA server.

Why "n:2" on your audio supported format?

So in result, BDP-Sx7x.conf must have

TranscodeVideo=MPEGTSAC3
TranscodeAudio=MP3
TranscodeExtensions=
StreamExtensions=
MediaInfo=true
Supported = f:mpegps|mpegts v:mpeg2|mp4|h264 a:ac3|lpcm|aac|mpa m:video/mpeg
Supported = f:avi|divx v:divx|mp4 a:ac3|lpcm|mpa|mp3 m:video/avi
Supported = f:mp3 m:audio/mpeg
Supported = f:wav m:audio/L16
Supported = f:jpg m:image/jpeg

Not sure where you got those specs from. Sony have changed their mind a few times about what will and won't be supported via DLNA, and I think it also varies by territory. The n:2 means two channel only which I think I cribbed from the and Xbox 360 PS3 configs. It wasn't meant to be 100% accurate anyway, especially given that nothing works at the moment.

Anyway, it seems from this thread on the Serviio forum that the BDP-S370 can be tricked into playing HD H.264 MKVs without transcode (I think these fall under its DivX-HD definition). Supposedly it even works with subtitles! WorldOfHurt - might be worth you having a play (and packet capturing from that too perhaps):

A bit off topic but I've been playing with Serviio and I can confirm that the BDP-S370 does indeed play HD H.264 mkv files over DLNA with no transcode provided their mime types are fiddled back to DivX by the Serviio profile. It's a bit of a pain because Serviio's media library sometimes corrupts when you add folders with too many videos, and it take a while to realise new content has been added (use the force refresh option). Also, the profiles are found in an XML file with existing ones. I naturally assumed I could make a new id leading on from the last (so number 9) but looking at the log it looks the Serviio binary like it only reads in the first 8 profiles.
One observation - it looks like the playback doesn't support seeking with the left and right keys on the remote, nor does it display a progress bar like BBC iPlayer does, or like the PS3MS playback on Bravia TVs. Maybe this is the BDP-S370's fault, but I guess it could be Serviio not being as fully featured as PS3MS. You can only do a ffd/rew picture scan. You do get a progress bar if you press Display.

Anyway - WorldOfHurt, do you want a working Wireshark trace of this? Could be useful in that it has subtitles working on the BDP-S370.

It seems quite picky in the H.264 clips that will be listed. Only ones which are AVCHD compliant (i.e. will play on a Bravia TV) will play so I think that's not more than High Profile Level 4.1 and even the wrong numbers of B frames can spoil things. On the Bravia, all AVC clips are listed, though only the proper AVCHD compliant ones play.

EDIT - I've tweaked the profile to allow it to play H.264 in m2ts files (works well) and MP4 too (untested for now):

Hi,
With serviio and your previous profile I can see a lot of video format:
http://forum.serviio.org/viewtopic.php? ... t=50#p2516

OK with
- AVI-MPEG4Divx5-MP3
- AVI-MEG4XviD-MP3
- BDAV - AVCL4.0 - AC3
- DIVX - MPEG4Divx5 - MP3
- MKV - AVCL4.0 - AAC
- MOV - MPEG4 - AAC
- MP4 - AVC - AAC
- MP4 - MPEG4V - AAC
- MPEGPS - MPEG1 - MP1L2
- MPEGTS - MPEG2 - AC3
- MPEGTS - MPEG2 - MP1L2

KO for some files
- AVI-VC1-AAC
- BDAV - AVCL4.0 - DTS -> DTS probacly not supported
- MKV - AVCL5.1 - AC3 -> AVC Profile Level > 4.0
- MKV - MPEG4DivX5 - AAC -> don't know
- MPEGTS - AVC - AC3 -> don't know

With PMS, probably a simple "MimeTypesChanges=" could resolved the MKV problem?
I'll try this later.

PSMS I think is better and easier to configure, we need someone who can fix the configuration for bdp370
