Request for User Friendly Default.conf file.

Postby DeFlanko » Mon Aug 15, 2011 11:36 pm

Im looking all around here and i cant seem to find a very user friendly "Default.conf" file with ALL the necessary and unnecessary settings and what they do.

I think so far this .conf file by Raptor399:
Code: Select all
#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Default.conf
#
# PS3 Media Server profile for the [insert render name here]
# See PS3.conf for a description of all possible configuration options.
#
# This profile is still in an experimental stage.
# You are encouraged to experiment and report back the results on the forums
# at http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/.
#
# TODO: [this is where you can keep a quick log of what works and what dosent, key thing about conf files is the "#" its what comments out items.]

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# General informations / detection

RendererName=[Insert Renderer Name here]
RendererIcon=[Insert Renderer Name here].png

# UserAgentSearch: regular expression to detect the connected renderer.
# [Insert Renderer Name here] has been observed using the following user agents:
#
# User-Agent: [See what the results of when it connect to PMS]
# User-Agent: [use this line if more than one render name shows up.]
#
# Combined regular expression of working user agents
UserAgentSearch=[Use brief render names here using "/" will separate multiple renderer names]

# UserAgentAdditionalHeaders: additional HTTP header for better detection
#UserAgentAdditionalHeader=
#UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch=

#Basic capabilities
Video=true
Audio=true
Image=true

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# DLNA settings

# Use the DLNA feature seek by time and not by range
SeekByTime=false

# Serve different flavors of localization in the DLNA parameters (PAL/NTSC, NA/EU/JP)
# to allow every worldwide renderer to see the files.
#DLNALocalizationRequired=false

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Transcoding/Muxing capabilities
#

# Transcode codecs for video and audio engines
# currently supported: MPEGAC3 (MEncoder), MPEGTSAC3 (TSMuxer) or WMV for video, PCM or MP3 for audio
TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3
TranscodeAudio=WAV

# Use default DVD buffer size: false = greater bitrate and faster encoding,
# but can generate incompatible videos, depends of your media renderer
DefaultVBVBufSize=true

#Does the media renderer supports DTS wrapped into LPCM in a mpeg file ?
WrapDTSIntoPCM=true

#Does the Device need Muxing? (false by default)
MuxH264ToMpegTS=false
MuxDTSToMpeg=false
MuxLPCMToMpeg=false

# Maximum bit rate supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)
MaxVideoBitrateMbps=0

# Max Width and Height supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0

# Does the media renderer supports only H264 L4.1 at most ?
H264Level41Limited=true

# Does music files need to be resampled at 44.1kHz?
TranscodeAudioTo441kHz=false

# Does the client need to receive transcoded video with minimal delay ?
# (Useful when the client has a small timeout delay)
#TranscodeFastStart=true

# Size of the transcoded file (unknown length) sent to the renderer (could
# determine browsing failure/success) Possible values:
#
#           -1: Specific value working with the PS3, means perfect transcoding
#               and copying support (it is against the DLNA spec though)
#            0: size attribute is NOT sent to the renderer (default value if
#               this parameter isn't used)
# 100000000000: 100Gb, if you want to be sure that the media file is not cut
#               before the end
#TranscodedVideoFileSize=0

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Misc Images

# Rotate JPEG files based on EXIF information
AutoExifRotate=true

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Use MediaInfo for faster and proper file, codec and mime type management
# system (false by default).

# Depreciated if MediaInfo=true
#TranscodeExtensions=
#StreamExtensions=

MediaInfo=true

# The media parser and this configuration file will recognize the following
# formats and codecs (lower case only, regular expressions are supported).
# Chosen from the most common used and supported formats and codecs.
#
#        mpegps       (mpeg presentation stream, used in DVD Videos, VCDs, etc.)
#        mpegts     (mpeg transport stream, used in sat tv, blu rays, etc.)
#        wmv        (Windows Media Video, tag also used for asf files)
#        avi        (AVI container)
#        mp4        (ISOM/MPEG4 container, or MPEG4 codec)

#        bmp        (Bitmap)
#        und        (Undetermined, if the parser did not recognize one of above)
# Usage:
#    f: format, MANDATORY (the only conf for a 'eat everything' renderer would be f:.+)
#    m: mimetype, STRONGLY RECOMMENDED (if not declared, an estimated value is assigned)
#    v: video codec
#    a: audio codec
#    n: max nb of audio channels
#    s: max audio sample frequency in Hz
#    b: max audio bitrate in bps
#    w: max width in pixels
#    h: max height in pixels
#    other flags: right now, only qpel and gmc (see avi)
#
# In case of multiple matches, the first mime type of the list is the used one.
# Be careful with regexps such as .+ : You should not use these except when you
# are sure your renderer is quite versatile.
#
# [This is a good sport to note out what the renderer can render...so that below you can build out the supported file types.]
#
#

# [Supported video formats]:

# [Supported audio formats]:

# [Supported image formats]

# Use faster method to create DLNA tree with MediaInfo. Not supported by some renderers,
# false by default (upnp specification violation).
CreateDLNATreeFaster = true

#----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Please lets moving forward use these conf files... understandable that it will make for bigger conf files.. (1k to 8k ish...) but i think it would be worth it moving forward as more novice users like my self will be able to contribute more.

Mods and Devs please add to the conf to get a finalized Default.conf template...

Thank you,

DeFlanko

Hey! You oranged me in your post! ;-)

Anyway, yes, .conf files could use some extra explanation. I'm not sure about the place, the format and the exact contents though. I'm also still trying to get my head around what settings exactly mean.

A couple of ideas:

- There should be one template, but it shouldn't be named ".conf" in order to not confuse PMS. As an alternative, we could simple spice up the PS3.conf and point to that (as some .confs do right now).
- There ought to be a FAQ like "How do I construct my own renderer.conf". Not sure if that should be in the same file, or whether it should be separate, e.g. in the documentation.

It's not high on my list to improve this (most people never touch .confs nor should they have to), but it is on my list nevertheless.

when i get spare time, ill post the "updated" versions here.

What about directly in the FAQ?

ill try and help you out to get more power users on board with designing conf files for the community...

You can zip them, the .zip extension is allowed.

Im only going to convert the ones that need it... the PS3.conf is good already and do we really need the iphone-ipad.conf now?

This needs to be customized on a per DEVICE level, as there are multiple types of Android devices.
