Sony BraviaEX.conf TranscodeExtensions

Postby anq4 » Sun Dec 16, 2012 2:41 am

I finally discovered why my Sony Bravia EX tries to transcode almost everything, and I havo to force it not to do so, completely ignoring the "skip transcode" extensions in "Transcoding settings".

Someone really has to explain me why the .conf file has this "almost everything on the earth list" in TranscodeExtensions!
It also conflicts with many of them being explicitly declared as supported in the next section...

TranscodeExtensions=dvr-ms,dvr,mkv,dv,ty,mov,ogm,hdmov,hdm,rmv,rmvb,rm,asf,evo,asx,flv,m2v,mpe,mod,tivo,ty,tmf,ts,tp,m2p,mp4,m4v,avi,

I have been having the exact same problem with Both my BRAVIA EX's, I don't get this problem when using PMS V1.51.0 But that has other issues with large numbers of files crashing the server, I have tried using the BraviaEX.conf from PMS 1.51.0 and this does not work either as it seems to be still transcoding everything

Another issue I seem to have with both v1.70 & v1.72 is that whenever I quit & re-open the application I have to disable all the transcoding options as this part of my preferences are not being saved

Can I ask how you managed to force non-transcoding?

#StreamExtensions=

just put a # infront of those lines like that then it will stream what is supported, the problem is sometimes a file might be incompatible on the tv thats why everything is set to transcode so then its the most compatible. basically i have a HX model and i stream mp4 and mpg transcode the rest and dont have any issues but with avi i would have problems so i transcode those so it works all the time.

mediainfo=true should automatically ignore transcodeextentions but it does not. (guess its a bug)

It should. If not, as you said, it is a bug. :idea:

it used to work but doesn't anymore im 100% sure (it actually stoped quite some time ago im guessing 1.60 somewhere). you need to hash those lines so the bottom mediainfo stuff would work.

also make sure you also # out the mp4 line if your ex model doesnt support mp4. some ex do some dont. i guess a better fix would be to # out transcode line and # out mp4 so that it would just transcode mkv/mp4 since all ex models support avi/mpg.

the config below would just transcode mp4/mkv (some other formats def not supported) instead of transcoding everything like it does with the official BraviaEX.conf.

ive actually got a bravia hx and have made the braviahx.conf similiar to this with a #'d out transcode line though ive tested it 100% and it was added to the official build some time ago. if you guys test this out we can most likely get the devs to add it to the official build.

It should. If not, as you said, it is a bug.


It's not a bug. It behaves exactly as documented:

PS3.conf wrote:# TranscodeExtensions: Comma separated list of file extensions that are forced
# to be transcoded and never streamed. Best left empty if MediaInfo = true,
# and define "Supported" formats instead.

TranscodeExtensions =


These profiles currently use both:

  1. Bravia5500.conf
  2. BraviaEX.conf
  3. DirecTVHR.conf
  4. DLinkDSM510.conf
  5. PhilipsPFL.conf
  6. SMP-N100.conf
  7. VizioSmartTV.conf
  8. XBOX360.conf

It may be that they should all use Supported exclusively, or it may be that some of them are using both deliberately e.g. in case MediaInfo is unavailable, or because their Supported sections are still a work in progress. Using both may also be useful while prototyping/testing/debugging a renderer conf.

If the BraviaEX.conf Supported settings work, then the "bug" is in the renderer conf: if it's using both when it should only be using Supported, remove the TranscodeExtensions line and post a link to the updated profile here, preferably after it has been tested and verified:

thanks for that, ok i cant test the Bravia EX one as i have a Bravia HX and for my tv it has been updated already and works perfectly.

Im pretty sure though 99% positive the conf i configured above would work perfectly on all Bravia EX models, if we could just get some feedback please then i can post it in the thread you suggested.
