Sony W5500 video playback not working

Postby karl » Fri Jul 31, 2009 9:26 pm

I have installed the latest beta build for MacOS and my Sony KDL-W5500 is finally recognized by PSM and can browse the shared folders. But I am still not able to watch videos. When I select a video, the PSM server starts encoding at 917 kb/s and after a few seconds the TV says "Playback not available" (german: Wiedergabe nicht verfügbar). Is this a configuration issue or is my WLAN connection too slow? Attached files shows my configuration.

Can someone at least say whether this encoding speed is good enough or not?

Ich würde mal die CPU-Auslastung des Mac beim Transcoding beobachten. Die Last sollte 90% pro CPU-Core nicht übersteigen, sonst liegt der Flaschenhals an der Leistungsfähigkeit der CPU. Ansonsten ist transcoding nach MPG2, wie für den Sony-TV erforderlich, nicht gerade bandbreitenschonend. Bei HD-Videos dürfte WLAN zu langsam sein. Ggf. rentiert es sich die MPG2-Encoding-Qualitätseinstellungen etwas herunterzudrehen (MPG2 video quality settings).

Servus, Otmanix
