LG 42LV5500 FLV streaming issues

Postby igbeserk » Tue Dec 06, 2011 12:53 am

Hey, Been messing around all day on trying to get PMS working on my LG 42LV5500 which has DLNA capabilities and what not. Initially i couldn't get any files to show up but resolved that. Created an LG config which helped even better all i did was just take the samsung.conf and changed some wordings around and it was recognized (even created a png icon for it lol) but yea my main issue thus far is getting flv files to stream. Now on my ps3 they stream using PMS just fine can't seem to get it to work with the LG. Is there a way to get it to transcode FLV's to another format or something to get it to play?

Here is what my config file looks like right now

Code: Select all
# ps3mediaserver renderer profile for LG 42LV5500
# Refer to PS3.conf for help

RendererName=LG (42LV5500)
UserAgentSearch=LG
RendererIcon=LG.png
Video=true
Audio=true
Image=true
SeekByTime=false
TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3
TranscodeAudio=AC3
DefaultVBVBufSize=true
MuxH264ToMpegTS=true
MuxDTSToMpeg=false
WrapDTSIntoPCM=false
MuxLPCMToMpeg=false
MaxVideoBitrateMbps=0
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0
MimeTypesChanges=audio/wav=audio/L16
TranscodeExtensions=mov,flv
StreamExtensions=mp3,mp4,avi,mkv,divx,flv


if anyone has any ideas or info that would be reatly appreciated. Also here is the log of what it shows when it's trying to run a .flv video

Weird now the flv files are playing yet I did not do anything different since yesterday. I thought perhaps since I had my ps3 on also that might have been it but turned it off and power cycled the tv and program and the flv's still are working. I noticed i'm on pms 1.30.1 i'm going to update to the latest and hopefully i won't have anymore issues.

OK! so it'ss half working. Spoke too soon there. The flv files do play but maybe for a minute or two then i get the loading screen and they won't go past that. When it happened the first time I was getting some mcencoder error 1 or something along those lines. I didn't save it because I wanted to power cycle everything to see if it showed up once more. But, it's not showing up but here is what it is showing me. If anyone has any ideas on how i can get it to work longer or better would be much appreciated.

A good thing you upgraded; the NullPointerException that you got in PMS 1.30.1 has been fixed in the most recent version.
Your current problem is tougher to tackle, it is a known problem (issue 1156).

If you examine the log file there two threads starting the same job at the same time:
Code: Select all
[New I/O server worker #1-10] INFO  10:56:33.211 Starting transcode/remux of z124.flv
[New I/O server worker #1-11] INFO  10:56:33.211 Starting transcode/remux of z124.flv

As a result, there is a NullPointerException at a place where it should not occur:
Code: Select all
[Thread-172] INFO  10:56:45.824 Exception in thread "Thread-172" java.lang.NullPointerException
[Thread-172] INFO  10:56:45.825    at net.pms.io.BufferedOutputFileImpl.write(BufferedOutputFileImpl.java:324)

We don't have a solution for this yet.
