I just installed PS3MS on Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit server and edited the SamsungAllShare.conf file. I found that the one attached to this topic and the one in the install are identical except for the "UserAgentSearch" line which I understands means nothing....Can anyone point out why there is a different exe and conf file? Are they the same as the actual ones?

Read over the last few pages... the modified useragentsearch is important for newer devices/firmwares to be detected. For the rest it doesn't mean much.
You do not need a modified exe unless you want a custom build of PMS.

Thanks!


Any ideas on this? I looked back through the posts, and saw that at least one other person has confirmed the issue, and I agree with his observation that it gets worse on longer titles (I.e. Movies are more out of sync than tv shows)

confirmed that External Subtitles are mentioned but ARE NOT DISPLAYED ...

why ???????? :shock:


If the TV shows it gets subtitles (tv functionality for subs enabled) but doesn't show them -> I think this happens when the server responds with the CaptionInfo header saying that subtitles can be downloaded, but the tv cannot use the subtitles gotten from the server. Unsupported subtitle format for example or if the subtitle url doesn't have the file-extension that the TV recognises. Atleast my TV seems to need the filename in the url end with .srt to show srt subtitles. If the url doesn't have the file-extension, the subtitle function on tv is enabled but subtitles aren't shown (even if the subtitles are in supported format).

I see in the name "external subtitle" but when i play it it does not show any subtitle.


Thank you very much for your interest and your answer,

I am sorry I just can not get it... The TV displays the movie(External Subtitles) my subs are either sort or sup or both. Regardless are not displayed... Can't I just transcode them to embed them in the movie on the fly???? How can I change the caption info header you mention?

Cheers!!


What can be wrong ?


Have you tried this:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=3811&p=61411#p60478

PS3MS appends the "external subtitle" text to the media files display name if it detects the file has a subtitle attached. Since the files are not transcoded for the tv, the subs are not "burned in" to the video. The tv supports external subs but the official code doesn't have the functionality to serve them separately from the video. The code in the link above adds this functionality.

On my D550 LCD:
- when streaming: I do experience various kinds of sync problems, depending on the video format, however I get the same problems when playing from USB (so not PMS there). Usually skipping back and then forward re-syncs everything for a while.
- when transcoding: when theres some disturbance in transmission, e.g. the buffer runs out, then sync problems occur and can't be corrected.

I have this weird issue. The common stuttering issues with MKV actually. But I've found some strange things that make the issue stranger than it was before. MKV high-ish bitrate files stutter, this is common, many people have this issue with Samsung TV's. What I've noticed is that if I get my notebook involved over Wifi, I have no stuttering at all! If I connect the same notebook over wired connection .... stutters!

Now, if I use my desktop over a wired connection, there be the same stutters as the notebook with wired connection. However the network itself seems perfectly fine for all other purposes (1gbit etc. transfer between clients 50MByte a second minimum).

So, notebook wifi (144mbit): fine (broadcom)
Notebook wired: not fine (realtek chip)
Desktop wired: not fine (marvell yukon chip)

Accesspoint in all cases is the same. A Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 cable modemrouterswitchwirelessaccesspoint. The local network speeds are really good and solid for all purposes. So it's hard to believe its a network issue. Something sets the wired config apart from the wired config and is the sole cause of this issue. I've found a few more people with this issue that have the exact same things I'm noticing.

I would suggest for anything that has these issues, to connect the PS3 Media server system to a wireless connection and see if the problems persist. (of course noting that the wifi has to be of sufficient speed)

Hi,

I recently bought a Samsung UE40D6530.

I have PMS installed on a Mac running OSX Lion. The PMS will stream Avi's to my tv but not MKVs. It just says it doesn't support the file format. Can anyone help? I know there is a config file to download but, and I maybe being thick here, I don't know where to put it / load it.

Any help?

I actually wonder if this is a problem with the TV - I've tried TV Mobili and and serviio, MKVs still don't stream.

download/file.php?id=2042 should work for you. Quit PMS then extract it to "C:\Program Files (x86)\PS3 Media Server\renderers". If you make a backup of the existing file, rename it to SamsungAllShare.conf.bak.
