PMS was designed to do everything in memory with no temp files or adding to the server's harddrive(s). Besides, there are plenty of other programs available (like MKV2VOB) that do what you're requesting.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

True, but if you really need to use PS3MS transcoding command you can run VLC commandline. Here is an exact copy of ps3ms is internally using. I just changed write to a file.

Change source variable to a local file or netstream. About the commandline options: vb=videobitrate, ab=audiobitrate

But do you really want to use this for batch processing is beyond me, recommend not because image quality sucks. Runtime transcoding is meant to run fast enough, not maximize the quality due to a CPU limit. You should use better batch scripts to transcode files, leave it run when you go to sleep.

Code: Select all
@REM Transcode file or stream to mpeg2/mp3
set source=mms://ondemand.msmedia.zdf.newmedia.nacamar.net/zdf/data/msmedia/zdf/09/02/090217_anstalt_nad_l.wmv

set VLC=C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe

"%VLC%" -vvv -I dummy %source% :sout=#transcode{vcodec=mp2v,vb=4096,acodec=mp3,ab=128,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=ts,dst="output.mpeg"}}
