Electrocompaniet EMP 2

Postby pythm » Sat Sep 08, 2012 3:58 pm

I bougth myself a Electrocompaniet EMP 2 BD player and made a .conf file to stream my files via PMS.
I tested whatever files I have on my mac (it's not much but a start) to see what files to stream and what to transcode.

The player is built upon the OPPO BDP-93. At first I tried the OPPOBDP93.conf but I got white noise at wav and m4a. I also added some basic code for supported media so that transcoded files was played back correctly. This section can perhaps be optimized, but since most my files are flac or mkv i did not bother to much.

Please keep me updated if you find any errors/suggestions.

# PS3 Media Server renderer configuration profile for Electrocompaniet EMP2
#

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# RENDERER INFORMATION

# RendererName: Determines the name that is displayed in the PMS user
# interface when this renderer connects.
RendererName = Electrocompaniet

# RendererIcon: Determines the icon that is displayed in the PMS user
# interface when this renderer connects. By default, these icons are
# bundled with PMS in pms.jar, but they can easily be customised:
# http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3507&p=49536#p49536
# RendererIcon=Electrocompaniet.png

# UserAgentSearch: Optional regular expression to detect a connected renderer.
# The expression is case insensitive. When the expression is empty User-Agent
# headers are not used, this is the default. Note that one renderer can use
# several different User-Agent headers.
UserAgentSearch = Electrocompaniet

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# BASIC CAPABILITIES
#
# This indicates to PMS what kind of media the renderer can handle. Files that
# the renderer cannot handle will be hidden from it.
#

# Video: Set to "true" if the renderer can play video.
Video = true

# Audio: Set to "true" if the renderer can play audio.
Audio = true

# Image: Set to "true" if the renderer can display images.
Image = true

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# DLNA SETTINGS
#

# SeekByTime: Set to true to use the DLNA feature seek by time instead of by
# range.
SeekByTime = true

# DLNALocalizationRequired: Serve different flavors of localization in the
# DLNA parameters (PAL/NTSC, NA/EU/JP) to allow every world wide renderer to
# see the files. Important for Sony Bravia TVs.
DLNALocalizationRequired = false

# CBRVideoBitrate is useful for renderers without SeekByTime support. It does time2byte conversion to support FF/RW.
# Only possibility how to predict where we are when seeking is using CBR bitrate instead of VBR used by default
# Making CBR stream by MEnocder is 3 times slower than using VBR so count with it if you have poor computer!
# Speed can be hopefully optimized little bit in the future:

# http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=11284&p=62765&hilit=1835#p62765
# CBRVideoBitrate=15000

# ByteToTimeseekRewindSeconds is used for finetuning so default is 0
# ByteToTimeseekRewindSeconds=0

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# MEDIAINFO
#

# MediaInfo: Set to "true" if PMS should parse files with MediaInfo. This will
# give PMS more accurate information, speed up browsing and prevent potential
# playback errors. It also enables the use of "Supported" to more accurately
# define the supported formats for the renderer.
MediaInfo = true

# CreateDLNATreeFaster: Use faster method to create the DLNA tree using the
# MediaInfo library. Since this is a UPnP specification violation, it is not
# supported by some renderers and false by default.
CreateDLNATreeFaster = true

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# TRANSCODING AND MUXING CAPABILITIES
#
# It is very likely that a renderer cannot render all file formats. If this is
# the case, PMS should transcode or mux the file to a format that the renderer
# can display. This section defines the format that PMS should transcode or
# mux to.
#

# TranscodeVideo: Profile to use for video transcoding.
# One of the following:
#
#     MPEGPSAC3: MPEG-2 video, AC-3 audio, MPEG-PS container
#     MPEGTSAC3: MPEG-2 video, AC-3 audio, MPEG-TS container
#     WMV:       WMV2 video, WMA2 audio, ASF container
#
# XXX MPEGPSAC3 was previously named MPEGAC3. The old name is deprecated.
# XXX Currently only the MEncoder engine supports all 3 profiles.
# Other engines transcode video to the MPEGPSAC3 profile,
# regardless of this setting.
#
# The default value is MPEGPSAC3.
TranscodeVideo = MPEGPSAC3

# TranscodeAudio: Profile to use for audio transcoding.
# Currently supported: "LPCM", "MP3" or "WAV".
# Default: LPCM
TranscodeAudio = LPCM

# DefaultVBVBufSize: Whether or not to use the default DVD buffer size. Setting
# this to "false" means a greater bit rate and faster encoding, but it can
# generate incompatible videos dependent on the renderer.
DefaultVBVBufSize = false

# MuxH264ToMpegTS: Set to "true" if the media renderer supports H264 and MPEG2
# in a MPEGTS file. Ignored if MediaInfo = true.
MuxH264ToMpegTS = true

# MuxDTSToMpeg: Set to "true" if the media renderer supports DTS in a MPEG
# file. Ignored if MediaInfo = true.
MuxDTSToMpeg = true

# WrapDTSIntoPCM: Set to "true" if the media renderer supports DTS wrapped
# into LPCM in a MPEG file.
WrapDTSIntoPCM = true

# MuxLPCMToMpeg: Set to "true" if the media renderer supports LPCM in a MPEG
# file. Ignored if MediaInfo = true.
MuxLPCMToMpeg = true

# MaxVideoBitrateMbps: The maximum bit rate supported by the media renderer.
# Setting to "0" means unlimited.
# If computer is low on resources it is better to avoid using bandwidth limit which is much CPU demanding
# It is better to lower quality settings by defining "CustomMencoderQualitySettings".
# By lowering quality also bitrate is decreased but it is not so CPU aggresive so it is preferred to use it this way
MaxVideoBitrateMbps = 0

# MaxVideoWidth: Maximum width supported by the media renderer. Setting to "0"
# means unlimited. This setting is ignored for files matching "Supported"
# formats when MediaInfo = true.
MaxVideoWidth = 0

# MaxVideoHeight: Maximum height supported by the media renderer. Setting to
# "0" means unlimited. This setting is ignored for files matching "Supported"
# formats when MediaInfo = true.
MaxVideoHeight = 0

# H264Level41Limited: Set to "true" if the media renderer supports only H264
# L4.1 at most.
H264Level41Limited = false

# TranscodeAudioTo441kHz: Set to "true" if music files need to be resampled at
# 44.1kHz.
TranscodeAudioTo441kHz = false

# TranscodeFastStart: Set to "true" if the renderer has a short timeout delay
# and needs to receive transcoded video with minimal delay. If set to "false",
# PMS will take some time to buffer some of the transcoded video.
TranscodeFastStart = true

# TranscodedVideoFileSize: The amount of transcoded data is unknown at the
# time of transcoding. Still, some renderers expect a size for the video file
# to be returned. Possible values are:
#            0: No size is sent to the renderer (default value)
# 100000000000: Fake size of 100 GB is sent to the renderer.
#           -1: Specific value that works perfect for the PS3. It is against
#               the DLNA spec though.
TranscodedVideoFileSize = 0

# MimeTypesChanges: A list of mimetype transformations in the format
# "old/mime1=new/mime1|old/mime2=new/mime2|...". Ignored if MediaInfo = true.
# MimeTypesChanges = video/avi=video/x-divx

# TranscodeExtensions: Comma separated list of file extensions that are forced
# to be transcoded and never streamed. Best left empty if MediaInfo = true,
# and define "Supported" formats instead.
TranscodeExtensions = alac,aiff,m4a,wav,ogg,wavpac,iso,vob,mov

# StreamExtensions: Comma separated list of file extensions that are forced
# to be streamed and never transcoded. Best left empty if MediaInfo = true,
# and define "Supported" formats instead.
StreamExtensions = flac,mp3,mkv,m2ts,ts,avi,mp4,mpg,m4v
#Not tested: flv,rm,wma,wmv,atrac,ape,ra,mpc...

# ForceJPGThumbnails: Some renderers require thumbnails to be represented as
# JPEGs (JPEG_TN) in the DLNA directory XML (e.g. Sony Bravia TVs and Blu-ray
# players). Set this to true to force PMS to use this representation. Note:
# this has no effect on thumbnail file formats or content-type headers.
ForceJPGThumbnails = false

# ChunkedTransfer: Some renderers are particular about the "Content-Length"
# headers in requests (e.g. Sony Blu-ray players). By default, PMS will send
# a "Content-Length" that refers to the total media size, even if the exact
# length is unknown. Default value is false. Set this option to true to omit
# sending a length when it is unknown.
ChunkedTransfer = false

# CustomMencoderQualitySettings: Overrides the MEncoder transcoding quality
# settings in PMS for this renderer. Default is empty, which means the PMS
# settings will be used.
CustomMencoderQualitySettings =

# CustomMencoderOptions: Overrides the MEncoder custom options in PMS for
# this renderer. Default is empty, which means the PMS
# settings will be used.
CustomMencoderOptions =

# SubtitleHttpHeader: Some devices recognize a custom HTTP header for
# retrieving the contents of a subtitles file. Set this option to the name of
# that custom header and PMS will send the URL for the subtitles file in that
# header (e.g. Samsung devices recognize the "CaptionInfo.sec" header).
# Default value is "", which means PMS will not send such header information.

# Some renderers can't show length of DVD titles so it will add it directly to title name to be shown
# ShowDVDTitleDuration = false

# Specified extension will be added to every file shared by PMS
# UseSameExtension = null

# ????????????????????????????
# DLNAProfileChanges = null

# ????????????????????????????
# DLNAOrgPN = true

# ????????????????????????????
# MediaParserV2_ThumbnailGeneration = false

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# IMAGES
#

# AutoExifRotate: Many cameras store information in the image file about the
# orientation of the camera while the picture was taken, allowing viewers to
# know which way was up. Set this option to "true" to allow PMS to rotate JPEG
# files based on EXIF information contained in the file, and relieve the
# renderer of that task.
AutoExifRotate = true

#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# SUPPORTED MEDIA FORMATS
#
# This section defines which media formats are supported by this renderer. If
# a file is supported and its mediainfo indicates that it falls within the
# capabilities of this renderer, PMS will stream the file to the renderer. All
# other files will be transcoded before being sent to the renderer.
#
# Each format that the renderer supports should result in a "Supported" line
# that defines the capabilities of the renderer. When MediaInfo = true, media
# files are parsed and their properties are matched against all "Supported"
# lines. If a value for a specific property cannot be parsed, that property
# is assumed to match.
#
# The order of the "Supported" lines matters: when multiple lines match, the
# first match is used.
#
# The media parser and this configuration file will recognize the following
# formats and codecs. Use lower case names only, regular expressions are
# supported. These are chosen from the most commonly used supported formats
# and codecs:
#
#        mpegps             (MPEG presentation stream, used in DVD Videos, VCDs, etc.)
#        mpegts             (MPEG transport stream, used in sat TV, Blu-rays, etc.)
#        wmv                (Windows Media Video, tag also used for asf files)
#        avi                (AVI container)
#        mp4                (ISOM/MPEG4 container, or MPEG4 codec)
#        mov                (Quicktime container, Apple)

#        mpeg1              (Codec used in VCD)
#        mpeg2              (Codec used in DVD Videos and HDTV)
#        divx               (DivX Video)
#        h264               (H264)

#
# Each of the "Supported" lines contains the following parameters separated by
# spaces or tabs:
#
#    f:    Regular expression to match the format of a file as parsed by the
#          MediaInfo library (see the list above). This parameter is mandatory.
#          Be careful when matching everything with ".+", the renderer must be
#          able to handle all formats.
#
#    v:    Regular expression to match the video codec of the file as parsed by
#          the MediaInfo library (see the list above).
#
#    a:    Regular expression to match the audio codec of the file as parsed by
#          the MediaInfo library (see the list above).
#
#    m:    The mime type to send to the renderer. Use of this parameter is
#          strongly recommended. If it is not set, an estimated value will be
#          assigned.
#
#    n:    The maximum number of audio channels used in the file as parsed by
#          the MediaInfo library.
#
#    s:    The maximum audio sample frequency used in the file as parsed by
#          the MediaInfo library, specified in Hertz.
#
#    b:    The maximum audio bit rate used in the file as parsed by the
#          MediaInfo library, specified in bits per second.
#
#    w:    The maximum video width used in the file as parsed by the MediaInfo
#          library, specified in pixels.
#
#    h:    The maximum video height used in the file as parsed by the MediaInfo
#          library, specified in pixels.
#
#    qpel: Quarter pixel codec setting in the file as parsed by the MediaInfo
#          library.
#
#    gmc:  The number of global motion compensation warp points in the file as
#          parsed by the MediaInfo library.
