[Help] Streaming to PS3

Postby Soulraver14 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 12:09 pm

Hello,

I have a problem when streaming to PS3 with the media server. If I play a stream on my PS3, after a couple of seconds of playing, the video freezes and my PC freezes too. I have this problem with divx and mkv files (dont know about other file types thou). Ooh and I use MEncoder, because I want to transcode the video/movie with subs :roll: I have no problems streaming with TVersity, but it doesnt stream MKV files.

Every reply is a step closer to the answer :D

1- your computer specs (cpu, memory) and the precise server version you're using : Pentium 4, 512 Mb RAM
2- the network connection you are using for streaming your files (wifi, homeplugs, ethernet 100Mbits, or gigabit): 100Mbits
4- if you're transcoding some videos, which engine are you using ? (mencoder, avisynth/mencoder, tsmuxer): MEncoder

[Edit]Debug.log file attached below.[/Edit] I hope it helps.

MEncoder crashing is usually from lack of memory. What do you have for the Transcode Buffer value under the Common Transcode settings?
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

Only 512MB of RAM?

Quite impossible to transcode MKV on P4 and 512MB. Try to use trascode buffer ~100MB.
System will eat you some memory, PMS itself and mencoder also plus your transcode buffer 400??? ====> your physical 512MB memory is :roll:
