Thanks FusionDawg! I can finally stream avi files now on the SMP-N100. No more using the stupid flash drive! Serviio works great for avi files, but no mkv support. I still use PMS w/ the PS3.
I hope they release a new version of PMS that works with the SMP-N100...

This might seem too simple but my SMP N100 (PS3 based) wouldn't play any of my videos that were in mp4 format. I read somwhere that if you change the file name from whatever it is to .divx (at the end) then it would work.

I copied my vidoes (mostly ones that I had converted from youtube for itunes - in mp4 format) into another folder, changed the name to .divx and every one of them played through my tvmobili server without fault.

Bed time now but I am going to try the same tomorrow with some other video files I have to see if it will play them if I change the name.

Has anyone been able to figure the conf file for this?

I would like to just use one media server and PS3 MEdia server does a great job.

Please post if your SMPN is working,

PMS for Sony SMP-N100

Postby Lintho » Fri Jun 17, 2011 2:15 am

I bought this Media Player today, after doing some reading saying that it would work via DLNA and I could watch my .mkv's etc...on my TV.

Well, at first it wouldn't even recognize my Desktop (Win 7 Prof 64bit) so I got on the chat w/ the sony people. No help.
So I started reading some more, and I saw that you need some sort of server and PMS seemed to be the best choice. Downloaded it, read the entire Help section, came to this forum and read through many posts and FAQ.

I have it installed (properly I think, because now the Media Player recognizes the server and can populate the files and creates the Transcode folder) yet when I try to play anything it tells me the file is corrupt or when I go through the Transcode folder it says that (the same folders are made as the movies) that these folders are empty.

This is my 3rd attempt at media players. I tried a WD Media Center, it was awful and just crashed ALL THE TIME, returned it. Got an Apple TV2, tried 14 times to 'crack it' via Green Poison and other one that goes via iTunes, awful and doesn't work at all, now it wont even turn on. And now, after "doing my homework" as I thought I did, I have the Sony SMP-N100, well...I'm stuck and I need help. Seriously, please. I'm CLEARLY not good at this, but I have been trying, I did the reading and I'm just dead in the water.

You professionals and seasoned vet's please, for all that is holy, help me.

I'm getting close I think on the config. A question:
How do I set up the media info to transcode everything to MPEG? I can stream to is using Play-on which is transcoding to mpg format. I'd like to mirror that setup. My current .conf file is:

Code: Select all
RendererName=Sony SMP-N100

#UserAgent: regular expression to detect the connected renderer

#UserAgentAdditionalHeaders: additional http header for better detection
UserAgentAdditionalHeaderSearch=Media Player

#Basic capabilities

# DLNA settings

#Use the DLNA feature seek by time and not by range

#Serve different flavors of localization in the DLNA parameters (PAL/NTSC, NA/EU/JP)
#to allow every worldwide renderer to see the files. Important for Sony Bravia's TVs

# Transcoding/Muxing capabilities

#Transcode codecs for video and audio engines
#currently supported: MPEGAC3, MPEGTSAC3 or WMV for video, PCM or MP3 for audio

#Use default DVD buffer size: false = greater bitrate and faster encoding,
#but can generate incompatible videos, depends of your media renderer

#Muxing capabilities: Does the media renderer supports H264 and MPEG2 in a mpegts file ?
#Deprecated if MediaInfo=true

#Does the media renderer supports DTS in a mpeg file ?
#Deprecated if MediaInfo=true

#Does the media renderer supports DTS wrapped into LPCM in a mpeg file ?

#Does the media renderer supports LPCM in a mpeg file ?
#Deprecated if MediaInfo=true

#Maximum bitrate supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)

#Max Width and Height supported by the media renderer (0=unlimited)

#Does the media renderer supports only H264 L4.1 at most ?

#Does music files need to be resampled at 44.1kHz?

#Does the client need to receive transcoded video with minimal delay ? (Useful when the client has a small timeout delay)

#Size of the transcoded file (unknown length) sent to the renderer (could determine browsing failure/success)
#Possible values:
#           -1: Specific value working with the PS3, means perfect transcoding and copying support (it's against the dlna spec though)
#            0: size attribute is NOT sent to the renderer (defaut value if this parameter isn't used)
# 100000000000: 100Gb, if you want to be sure that the media file is not cutted before the end ?

# Misc Images

#Rotate Jpeg files based on EXIF infos

# Misc Files

# Mime types transforms (oldmime=newmime|olemime2=newmime2|...)
# Deprecated if MediaInfo=true

# What extensions are forcefully transcoded
# Don't use this if MediaInfo=true, prefer codec configurations
# What extensions are forcefully streamed as is (and not transcoded)
# Don't use this if MediaInfo=true, prefer codec configurations

#Better/faster codec detection method ! true to enable it
#Need testing !
# temporary removed lpcm
Supported = f:mpegps|mpegts    v:mpeg2    a:ac3|aac|mpa   m:video/mpeg
Supported = f:mp3   m:audio/mpeg
Supported = f:lpcm  m:audio/L16
Supported = f:jpg   m:image/jpeg

A new firmware was released today. Still don't have it working. I think the problem is in my mediainfo config. Is there a good guide somewhere on how to setup teh mediainfo beyond what's documented in ps3.conf?

If anyone has figured this out, I'd LOVE to know. My ps3 is working beautifully, but in order to avoid buying a 2nd PS3 for the living room, I just bought the SMP-N100 media player. And it sees the PS3MS, but when I traverse down to any of the folders, it says "No Playable Files found" or something like that.

Just wondering if PS3MP will work for my SMP-N100 or if I'm out of luck.
