I suggested experimenting with different output settings.

Code: Select all
-target pal-dvd


(there's no such target as "dvd-pal") was the default in 1.5.1 (and 1.5.0), so I'm at a loss to see how setting a value that was already set could fix anything.

Whoops, I meant "-target pal-dvd". I had typed it from memory, sorry.

Hi Chocolateboy.

Just some feedback so far.

I am still having "The file is corrupt or unsupported" issues with version 1.5.2 (or possibly with ffmpeg transcoding) on web.conf streams. Nothing works. However, the channel plugin now works, but real jerky - so maybe I need to try a much lower resolution with my slow-ish PC - or possibly find some faster settings for ffmpeg.

I am using PS3MS reversion .509. Renderer is Sony BDP-S370 (which is a little fussy when it comes to DLNA) using the patch and conf in my sig.

When reverting to pmsencoder 1.4.0 both web.conf and Channel plugin streams play. They also have correct aspect ratio for wide stream channels. But are stretched wide for 4:3, which is not ideal but is fine. However, audio is missing on some channels.

EDIT: reducing resolution solved the jerky transcoding with 1.5.2 and ffmpeg. The remaining issue is that web.conf streams don't work with this combo.

I will keep playing. Thanks for all your work and help.

hey Chocolateboy,

can u tell me how i can implement rpt multicast streams in PS3MediaServer so i can watch IPTV via PS3?

I've installed the psMencoder plugin but i don't know in which format i have to implement the rpt URI. My first try was: videostream.IPTV,sender=ARD,rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000 is this ok? i didn't think so because after i try to play the stream i get a black screen and nothing happens.

Thx

Try experimenting with ffplay and mplayer e.g.

Code: Select all
ffplay.exe rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000
ffplay.exe rtp://239.35.129.11:10000
ffplay.exe rtp://0.0.0.0?localport=10000
mplayer.exe rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000
mplayer.exe rtp://239.35.129.11:10000
mplayer.exe rtp://0.0.0.0?localport=10000


If it works in ffplay, then use the same URI in WEB.conf. If it works in mplayer but not in ffplay, then you'll need to use PMSEncoder 1.4.0 for now as the MPlayer downloader doesn't currently work on Windows.

You can also watch ARD broadcasts with the Channel plugin.

hmm ... damn ...

i downloaded ffplay.exe and tried with cmd:
Code: Select all
ffplay.exe rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000
ffplay.exe rtp://239.35.129.11:10000
ffplay.exe rtp://0.0.0.0?localport=10000


but nothing happens, how does ffplay work?

then i tried with mplayer:
Code: Select all
mplayer.exe rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000
mplayer.exe rtp://239.35.129.11:10000
mplayer.exe rtp://0.0.0.0?localport=10000


and i get this errors:

Ok my mistake, i used an old version of ffplay. i downloaded the new win32 shared binaries from http://ffmpeg.arrozcru.org/builds/ and it works with:

Code: Select all
ffplay.exe rtp://@239.35.129.11:10000
ffplay.exe rtp://239.35.129.11:10000


but ... in which format i have to add these in web.conf now?

If they both work, you don't need to change your current WEB.conf entries. Try using a more recent PMS build (i.e. with a more recent ffmpeg): viewtopic.php?f=14&t=8883

If that doesn't work, you'll need to zip/attach the logfiles after trying and failing to play a stream. There is no evidence of either in the logfiles you posted earlier.

PMSEncoder 1.5.3 has been released.

This release restores built-in support for YouTube that was broken by a recent YouTube change.

Does anyone else have leftover mplayer.exe and ffmpeg.exe executables running after exit?
