try playing the file on the transcoding case? try them all.
sorry what are you refering to here. I'm a noob.?????
I managed to get it all set up with probably default settings, as in have not done anything special other than start the server and then
try and stream to xbox 360.
I have success with only some avi files I have success with .h264 mp4 files but not other mp4 this is all new to me so I have no idea about how films or how any other media is encoded etc. blablablah..... I have quiet a few gigs worth of films and music. films in many different formats but as I said before to me an avi is an avi is an avi, but obviously it goes beyond that and I guess has to be with the way it is encoded?
can you or someone else tell me how I can get all my films to stream like the .h264 mp4. oh yes I have some mp4 that don't play either, especially any video that when browsing my media directories shows up with the word Mencoder Video next to it, these dont play, what is Mencoder????
I have placed the debuger script/plugin.zip in my PMS plugins folder so I will go and check the tut on this to see how to send any debug logs when I try and view files that do not play. Also when I try to stream audio from my server I can't navigate my directories like I can for films, why not???? I can only get so far and then it just wants to set whatever directory I have managed to navigate to as my media source, but then just hangs and does nothing, little white circle going round and round on xbox as if its going to play something but never does????? how to be able to navigate and choose an albumn or an entire directory (discog for instance) or failing that one entire artists playlist? any help would be very much appreciated thank you. PMS rocks, plex sux!
