Problem Streaming to Andriod phone on 1.52.0

Postby gstruwig » Sat Mar 31, 2012 8:28 am

Intel Core2 Duo E7400 @ 2.8 GHz
2 GB Ram
Netgear 300N Wireless Router.
PS3 Hard Wired
Android Phone Wifi using Skifta and Rockplayer Light

Standard PMS Install with no customisation.
Works on v1.50.1-SB58 but not on v1.51.0-SB67 & v1.52.0

No problem on PS3 but when I stream to android the video takes forever to start streaming and then I get only sound and a black screen.

On the spms status screen I notice the Transcoded buffer starts to fill up and then suddenly goes to negative number -99 something.
No other errors in traces.

I've been at this for at least two years and none of the players you can find on Android is really happy with the PMS (they are not patient enough). The only solution I so far got working real good i my own "download stream" method which basically temporary downlads the file and then the player reads from the file (the whole file isn't downloaded). VitalPlayer can cope with this scheme.

@meskibob I will post the full debug log when I get a chance to install 1.52.0 again and test it, at the moment I have reverted to v1.50.1-SB58 and don't have any problems.

@sharkhunter I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and It plays almost anything PMS throws at it without a problem. I use SKifta and rockplayer light or moboplayer.

I've only had trouble with 1080p videos which I believe to be a transcoding problem....
Anything else will play fine using bubble upnp and mxplayer with very little wait time; it's not instant but only 3-4 seconds usually.

I still have the same problem on 1.52.1 and have noticed that media is rendered as mpeg2/ac3 which does not work. 1.51.0-sb58 served media as mpeg4/mp3.
I have appended debug log for both 1.52.1 and 1.51.0-SB58. Many thanks.

I have just tested on 1.52.2-SB71 and the problem still persists.
I guess I am stuck on 1.51.0-SB58 :(
