I was wrestling with the "perfect settings" for PMS (Currently working in 1.11.347) with tsMuxer / MEncoder and subtitles and stuff, when i stumbled upon something very annoying.
Every time I'm using the MEncoder on a movie (Only tried the MVK container so far) with embedded subtitles, the PMS shuts down with the following "error" in the log file:
"[win32/mencoder_mt.exe] TRACE 16:51:36.302 Process C:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Media Server BETA\win32\mencoder_mt.exe has a return code of 1! Maybe an error occured... check the log file"
It does not matter if I'm transcoding the subtitles or not, it's enough if the subtitles are embedded in the container to kill the PMS
The movie "works" (at least the PMS stays alive) with tsMuxer (even though I might get silence or black screen due to incompatible audio/videostreams).
This phenomenon appears on every movie with embedded subtitles, and it does not matter if I disable the transcoding of subtitles. Movies withouth subtitles works perfectly withMEncoder.
Attaching a "clean" debugfile when this occured on "Army.of.Darkness.1992.720p.BluRay.DTS.x264-quaz"
I'm running on a Intel Core2Quad Q9550 with 8Gb of ram and Windows Server 2008 Standard X64 with 64bits Java installed
