XVID player selection

Postby bibble_235 » Thu Nov 01, 2012 10:04 am

Hi,

Sorry to keep posting. This is a new one but happy to share

I have a file which is

Format : AVI
Format/Info : Audio Video Interleave
File size : 396 MiB
Duration : 48mn 24s
Overall bit rate : 1 143 Kbps
Writing application : VirtualDubMod 1.5.10.2 (build 2540/release)
Writing library : VirtualDubMod build 2540/release

Video
ID : 0
Format : MPEG-4 Visual
Format profile : Advanced Simple@L5
Format settings, BVOP : 2
Format settings, QPel : No
Format settings, GMC : No warppoints
Format settings, Matrix : Default (H.263)
Muxing mode : Packed bitstream
Codec ID : XVID
Codec ID/Hint : XviD
Duration : 48mn 24s
Bit rate : 1 005 Kbps
Width : 624 pixels
Height : 336 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 1.857
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Color space : YUV
Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0
Bit depth : 8 bits
Scan type : Progressive
Compression mode : Lossy
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.192
Stream size : 348 MiB (88%)
Writing library : XviD 1.2.1 (UTC 2008-12-04)

Audio
ID : 1
Format : MPEG Audio
Format version : Version 1
Format profile : Layer 3
Mode : Joint stereo
Mode extension : MS Stereo
Codec ID : 55
Codec ID/Hint : MP3
Duration : 48mn 24s
Bit rate mode : Constant
Bit rate : 128 Kbps
Channel(s) : 2 channels
Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz
Compression mode : Lossy
Stream size : 44.3 MiB (11%)
Alignment : Aligned on interleaves
Interleave, duration : 40 ms (1.00 video frame)
Interleave, preload duration : 504 ms

This would not play by default using a headless install of 1.70 without using transcode.

However rename the file to iain.divx and the file plays perfectly.

I share the server with my son on an XBOX1 and want to reduce the CPU usage. How does the PS3MediaServer determine which player to use? I notice this file used mplayer when renamed.

Thanks,
Iain
