Every time I try to transcode something (forced), the TV will show loading and
sit there forever... I've seen the transfer rate show a ridiculous number and the
TV hangs (doesn't respond to anything). One time I got fed up and unplugged the
TV only to see my system settings had to be re-entered (including clock). Something
weird is going on with it. I see someone else experiences this problem. I tried it with
my brother's D6500 (last year's model) and it transcodes fine. HELP!!


dont know why your having transocding problems (try other dlan servers to try and home in on problem?), but i have tested with every file format, codec, profile, subtitle under the sun and vorbis is the only problematic codec i have found.I suggest you make a point of turn off all transcoding....

my NW (Win7 Ult. 64 bit ) with java 7 32 bit and PS3 MS V1.70.1 everything will work fine.

But when i try to decode an WMF file the Transcodingbuffer will be filled with 10-40 MB and then jump to -95.291 MB.
The TV will only show Loading and then tell me that possible the file is not correct to play.
Then the Screen gets Black and the Transcodingbuffer is Empty.


What can i do to make it work ?



I am also having issues streaming to Allshare on my new (2012 model) Samsung SmarTV (model: UN55ES6100FXZA).
When i try to transcode/stream a DVD ISO to the TV it begins loading and the buffer begins to fill. Then almost simultaniously the TV gives an error saying the file is unsupported and the buffer shows -95,335 MB. sometimes it says the PMS Server has disconnected when this error is thrown as well (but not everytime).

Anyone have any ideas on this?
point me in a direction please!

Need more detail information (in particular the debug.log), see: FAQ: How can I supply details to help diagnose my problem?

here is my debug log:

I am currently streaming via Wireless N .
I transcoded the DVD last night to an MP4 with handbrake and I am able to stream that without any issues to the TV but ISO's are not working at all.
ISO's do stream to my PS3 with no issues though.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer me.

Hi! Here are 2 logfiles I've zipped:
- One is for when I try to transcode an mkv file and the TV (model ES8000 series) hangs on 'loading' and eventually exits after 1-2 minutes with the message "network disconnected".
- The other is for when I allow PSM to stream the same mkv to the TV (no transcoding since it's a supported mkv). In this case, the TV successfully plays it and it works like a charm.

I notice the log for the transcoded mkv file is full of the following error message:
DEBUG 2012-11-10 11:11:46.352 [Thread-22] [mpeg2video @ 0113f220]rc buffer underflow

*NOTE* I made sure my version of Java is the latest one.
Thanks for all your help. I really appreciate it.

There are 2 logfiles (note, the TV supports this mkv normally). The 'trancode' one is the output for when I try to transcode the media, while the 'notrancode' is for when I let PMS stream to the TV without trancoding (which works, by the way).

It looks like MPlayer does not like your ISO's at all:

Has it ever worked before? If so, switching back to using that MPlayer version might work for you. If not, try Google. Maybe others have the same problem.

Looks like MEncoder somehow does not like to transcode the movie.

You could try running the following transcoding command in a Command Prompt and see what MEncoder has to say:

Code: Select all
"C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\win32\mencoder.exe" -ss 0 "X:\Anime\Sword Art Online\[Hatsuyuki]_Sword_Art_Online_-_05_[8bit][1280x720][BD6E6515].mkv" -msglevel statusline=2 -oac lavc -of mpeg -mpegopts format=mpeg2:muxrate=500000:vbuf_size=1194:abuf_size=64 -ovc lavc -channels 6 -lavdopts debug=0:threads=2 -lavcopts autoaspect=1:vcodec=mpeg2video:acodec=ac3:abitrate=448:threads=2:keyint=5:vqscale=1:vqmin=2:vrc_maxrate=11000:vrc_buf_size=1835 -ass -fontconfig -sid 0 -ofps 24000/1001 -lavdopts fast -mc 0 -noskip -af lavcresample=48000 -srate 48000 -o testmovie.mpg

The above command line ought to generate a file named "testmovie.mpg" in your current directory.
Does that happen, and can you view the testmovie.mpg?

Sorry, I forgot the computer I was running it on had 2 gigs of ram which doesn't appear to be enough, hence those messages.
I ran the command on that computer anyhow and it generated the mpeg file (kinda large) with those same errors. I was able
to load that file too.

I installed PMS on my other computer with more memory and the Samsung had the same behaviour, though (with no buffer error messages this time).
In fact, the streaming (no transcode) quits after about 3 minutes (I never let it run long enough before and noticed this now). I also have a panasonic
which doesn't have any issues with transcoding (or streaming). I've included a trace (debug) with 3 files below:

1. Samsung - no transcoding -> Shows video but fails/hangs after about 3 mins.
2. Samsung - transcoding -> hangs then fails after 1 min, never shows video.
3. Panasonic LED - Transcoding -> Works perfectly. I ran for almost 15 minutes without issues.
(Keep in mind the Panasonic likes to preview files as I scroll through the directory so you might see some transcoding messages for a few secs)

I ran it on the same file as before:
X:\Anime\Sword Art Online\[Hatsuyuki]_Sword_Art_Online_-_05_[8bit][1280x720][BD6E6515].mkv

One thing I noticed is on the samsung transcoding, there seemed to be a issue establishing a link between the samsung and my PC as it keeps trying to transcode then stops and eventually quits.

Thanks.

Poor image quality with Samsung all share

Postby bbunnys » Mon Nov 12, 2012 2:18 am

Im running PS3 media server direct to my 55 inch Samsung TV through DNLA and find on SD 480p video image quality is pretty poor.
If I run the same SD video through PS3 media server on my Xbox 360 or my mates WD Live TV picture looks much better and crisper.

Is this just due to Samsung TV build in media player being poor or lower resolution, and is there a way to change resolution. I wounder if image difference is becaue Xbox etc are upscaling it to 1080p as thats what I have them set on.

Is there anyway in PS3 media server to upscale picture
