I'm currently running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Build 7201). I've installed the klite codec pack v2.9.0, as well as its x64 version. I am using the latest version of PS3 Media Server as of now.
I pretty much left everything at default settings except for the following:
- In the "Transcoding Settings" tab under "common transcode settings", I set "Number of audio channels" to 2, since my HDTV only supports stereo.
- I enabled the "AviSynth/FFmpeg" and "Avisynth/MEncoder" engines, and set them to the following order (from top to bottom): AviSynth/FFmpeg, AviSynth/MEncoder, Mencoder, TsMuxer.
- I setup a single share directory where my AVI files are located.
I am running 12GB of DDR3 RAM and I have an overclocked Intel Core i7 (3.8GHz). I wanted to setup PS3 Media Server in such a way that it would take advantage of all 8 cores (4 true cores, each is hyperthreaded, so windows sees 8).
My problem so far seems to be when I browse the directories on my PS3. I go through the directories, and instead of getting a list of AVI files to choose from, I see a "#--TRANSCODE--#" directory. I enter that, and each AVI file, instead of being a file, is listed as another directory inside of there. I enter an AVI directory and nothing is in there.
I am unable to play my AVI files for some reason. This happened as well when I had MEncoder set as the top video file engine. How can I fix this?
