Code: Select all
TranscodeExtensions=dvr-ms,dvr,mkv,dv,ty,mov,ogm,hdmov,hdm,rmv,rmvb,rm,asf,evo,asx,flv,m2v,mpe,mod,tivo,ty,tmf,ts,tp,m2p,mp4,m4v,avi,wmv,wm,divx,div,flac,mlp,fla,wma,m4a,aac,dts,mka,ape,ogg,shn,mpc,ra,mp2,wv,oma,aa3,gif,png,arw,cr2,crw,dng,raf,mrw,nef,pef,tif,tiff


Thanks for the update. I'll start using it.
FWIW, there is at least on duplicate on the TranscodedExtensions list -- 'tp'.

With this, browsing is faster, but it violates upnp specification and is not supported with some renderers.

It work faster if You have lot of files in folder (without this option PMS analyze all files in folder before send).
