I am using ubuntu 12.04, PS 3 Media Server 1.7, and Samsung AllShare Play on a 2012 Samsung TV and am trying to play home videos' from my ubuntu PC on the Samsung TV. All devices are on a wired ethernet LAN.
I am get a transcode error in PS 3 Media server - traces below - and the video does not play (infact Allshare play force quits with a "please check your network connection" dialog). Pictures (.jpg) and MP3's both stream fine from the PC to the TV.

The video file is an AVCHD ( .MTS file extension), codec is H.264 MPEG-4 AVC, resolution 1440 x 1080, frame rate is 50.
I have gone through a trial and error with the common transcoding settings in the PS 3 Media server. To no effect.
Currently the settings are:
Transcode buffer: 400
Number of cores: 2
MPEG-2 Options: keyint=25:vqmax=7:vqmin=2 /* Medium quality for HD Wifi transcoding */
On the general configuration tab I have set the Default Renderer to Samsung AllShare
Any ideas on how to solve this greatly appreciated.
