you can forget subtitles...
The PS3 doesn't accept external subtitles and TSmuxer doesn't support embedding external subtitles, so you're stuck transcoding the entire video with MEncoder. This is very resource intensive, especially for 1080P, so a P4 won't be able to keep up.skipdaflip wrote:... does it take such a heavy machine to convert those subtitles into the MKV stream?
I was talking specifically in the PMS framework and only using PMS to stream the files. There are probably other external programs you can use to embed the subtitles, in which case a P4 may be able to handle a 1080p remux with TSmuxer. However, this has the drawbacks of a) you're either loosing the source file or keeping two copies, and b) you're loosing PMS's streamlined functionality since you'll need to manually embed the subtitles before streaming.skipdaflip wrote:I'll see what you mean, but I still think that a P4 could be enough for the mux/demux process...
I could be wrong, but I like to expiriment a little before throwing my towel into the ring. I will post my results up here and the specs I've used when it worked out for me.
This doesn't mean I say you're wrong meskibob or shagrath... I will also post my results if I'm wrong.
