  1. Server is running on Windows 7. I have tested three clients... Chrome on an i7 Laptop; MediaBrowser Android client on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (running android 4.4.4) and MediaBrowser Android client on Samsung Galaxy Tab s 10.5" (running Android 4.4.2). In general, when transcoding, on the server dashboard, the Note 3 shows 30~40 FPS; for Chrome and the Tab S, it shows about 12~13 FPS. Needless to say playback is flawless on the Note 3, but choppy on the other two clients. I'm surprised - because I always thought the transcoding speed is dependent on server load, and not related to client. Is there something in settings that I could've missed ? Or is it related to Android/Chrome versions?
  2. I am just after some clarification around setting up MBS. I have MBS installed on a PC that has all my media on it. I then have another PC in my living room with MBC installed on it. Do I need to install codecs either on the MBS PC or MBC PC to be able to play all file types including .mkv files and also have external subtitles working? I have read about transcoding and not sure how it all works and if I need to configure anything to get it all going.

  4. Hi , playing movies with idx/sub over dlna has never worked for me, I been using the latest dev build and every time I try to play a movie with sub/idx my tv respond with a "format not supported" error. Playing the same movie with a srt subtitle works just fine. The reason that sub/idx doesn't work is that the transcoding is failing when it cant find the .sub file when the path contains a whitespace as the cmdline reference -i isn't inclosed in "-marks. The last row in the transcoding log tells the tale.(see example below) I guess this would be an easy thing to fix ?

    Tweak or Add Encoding Options?

    Is it possible to add or change existing encoding/transcoding parameters when streaming a video via the web UI? I would like to try and tweak the lowest 720p option with a lower bitrate so that it can stream a little bit more reliably on my ISP's 1mb upload cap. I looked in the server config files and can't find anywhere to change it.
  6. Hey there, I just wanted to say that the new update to the android app looks great. However, it used to work beautifully for me without issue but after the update playback won't start for any media types; movies or music. I also tried the web app on my ANdroid and transcoding will begin but playback will not start. This all started after the most recent updates. I will be happy to attach any logs you need. Also a family member that access my server over the web via a roku said that they couldn't get a movie to start either. I'm not sure if the two issues are related or not. Thanks in advance for the help!
  7. First off, thank you to everyone who has worked on the XBMB3C plug-in and the assorted skins. I've been following the project since the beginning and am currently using the plug-in on two Windows 7 machines and an Android phone with the Confluence MB skin. I've been very happy with this setup and impressed with how quickly the project has progressed. I know that you just recently added support for transcoding. I was wondering exactly what is checked to determine if transcoding is necessary. I've edited some recorded TV episodes using VideoRedo to cut out commercials and then used Handbrake to convert from mpeg2 to h.264 in an mkv container to save space and for better playback using a Chromecast (with the Android MB app or Plex app) on bedroom TVs. But I've noticed that the XBMB3C clients on my Windows 7 machines use transcoding to play some of the episodes. Episodes that were recorded as 720p mpeg2 video with AC-3 audio and converted to 720p h.264 video with AAC audio play just fine. However, episodes that were recorded at 1080i mpeg2 video with AC-3 audio and converted to 720p h.264 video with AC-3 and AAC audio tracks are forced to use transcoding. These same files play just fine on the same machines using WMC MBC with MPC-HC as an external player. I'm no Handbrake expert, so I might be causing the transcoding with my choice of settings. But really the only difference between the settings for the different types of episodes is that I reduce the 1080i files to 1280 x 720 and use Bob for deinterlacing. I also noticed that you've added "Transcoding" or "Direct Play" to the episode name, but sometimes an episode plays without either of these being added to the name. What does that mean? Thanks.
  8. Having a problem with the app on my wife's Kindle Fire HD. It used to work, at least when I first set it up a few months ago. Essentially when I try to play anything, it starts to queue it up, then it stops, goes back to the splash screen and the whole app becomes basically locked up. Force closing it doesn't resolve the issue. The only thing that gets me back to being able to navigate around is to remove the app and re-install (but the play issue remains). From the log, this seems to be the relevant error (whole log attached): 2014-08-19 17:49:24.5344 Error - HttpResultFactory: Error streaming media Unable to write data to the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

    Scalabity question

    Yes often times we direct stream the file through the server api, which as far as the client is concerned is identical to file playback through the LAN. Then other times we just do a container swap, keeping the audio/video in their original forms but just changing the container from say, mkv to mp4. These techniques are cheap and will scale to a large number of people easily.

    WD TV Live transcoding fails

    Hi there, I'm having trouble streaming a handful of movies to my WD TV Live, and after much digging I suspect this to be a bug in Media Browser Server. Most of my files stream directly (without transcoding) and play without issue, but a few cause Media Browser to (incorrectly, AFAIK) fire up FFmpeg and then immediately terminate the process. The result is a screen like this on my WD TV Live: Contrary to what the above message says, my WD TV can indeed play the video file as-is without transcoding (see below). My entire library is MKV / H.264 encoded with HandBrake, ranging from High Profile @ Level 4.0 to 5.1. Most of the videos that fail to play are HP@L5.0 or L5.1, but a few are L4.0. According to the WD TV Live's User Manual, appendix page 211, the device supports a maximum of HP@L4.1 1920×1080p30 w/ a bit rate of HD:40. However, I routinely stream HP@L5.0 and HP@L5.1 videos over DLNA using Serviio and they play fine without issue. So the WD TV is certainly capable of directly playing the videos that are failing without any transcoding, but Media Browser appears to be attempting to transcode them anyway, and for some reason it immediately kills the FFmpeg process - even though FFmpeg doesn't throw any errors or abend. Curiously, if I copy the FFmpeg command that Media Browser tries to run and run it manually in command prompt, it works like a charm. Thus I suspect this is a Media Browser bug. Here's the relevant portion of the Media Browser Server log file (full version attached): 21:06:47.4049 Info - App: C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\ffmpeg\old\20140105\ffmpeg.exe -fflags genpts -i file:"M:\MB3\Shared\Disney\Brave (2012) [1080p].mkv" -map 0:0 -map 0:1 -map -0:s -vcodec libx264 -force_key_frames expr:if(isnan(prev_forced_t),gte(t,.1),gte(t,prev_forced_t+5)) -vf "scale=trunc(min(iw\,1920)/2)*2:trunc(min((iw/dar)\,1080)/2)*2" -preset ultrafast -crf 23 -r 23.97602 -vsync vfr -profile:v baseline -level 41 -map_metadata -1 -threads 2 -acodec aac -strict experimental -ac 2 -ab 128000 -af "adelay=1,aresample=async=1,volume=2" -y "C:\Users\BobaFett\AppData\Roaming\MediaBrowser-Server\transcoding-temp\533d0985-6037-a22e-7474-7dd0d8ceeec7.ts" 21:06:48.0960 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP GET http://192.168.0.153:8096/mediabrowser/Items/445cc5e11de0ae3b2e93b9473ccb6bda/Images/Primary?params=ec86bcdb5a084c10534a540f0de1eea2;jpg;512;512 21:06:48.1510 Debug - HttpServer: HTTP Response 200 to 192.168.0.159:43914.

    Transcoded Audio Issue

    WMP and Media Player Classic Home Cinema sounded the same - So, I think it is producing the proper sound. Also, when I tried playing the transcoded .webm with WMP - it sounded weird. There is something wrong with the transcoder or the transcoder settings. I have also tried the web interface on older video files that I know aren't in 5.1 - they still sound wrong. The audio plays normally through mediabrowser classic on WMC and through the mediabrowser 3 app on windows - however, these do not require transcoding. *Added the media-info to the main post

    Video bitrate

    The server is running on INTEL i5-3570k 3.40 gHz 16 GB ram windows 7 Home Premium x64 OK I'm hoping someone can help clarify this for me. Ive been reading on the server that if you have a file encoded with h.264 and aac in either mp4 or mkv containers then it will direct play to your device, so I have been experimenting a bit, and have yet to see no transcoding going on on my server with files that fit that description. But, while I was playing around with it, I noticed that if I increase my iphone 5's bitrate settings to higher than the bitrate of my video file, then the video will be jittery or freeze all together and the audio will sound off. I know next to nothing about this, but I had assumed that it should play better if the bit rate settings exceed the files settings? For example, the file I am attempting to play is 5,368 kb/s. H.264 AC-3 in MKV container. VIDEO stream 4,877 kb/s 1920*1080 at 23.976 fp/s; AUDIO stream 384 kb/s 48 khz, 16 bit 6 channels AC-3. I set the cellular quality bit rate settings in the MB ios app to 5 mb/s and it plays wonderfully over LTE. The audio is crisp, the video is clear and smooth during playback, but CPU utilization on my PC is very high, around 80-90%. If I increase the bit rate on the iOS device to 6 mb/s, it takes longer to begin playback, and when it does the audio is hollow and the video freezes while the audio plays on, though on my PC the CPU utilization is significantly lower between 20-30%. It happens with all of the files I have played with while on the cellular network and my LAN wifi, this is just the one I have open in mediainfo currently. Why is the playback not improved by having the devices bit rate settings exceed that of the file? Why is the CPU utilization so much higher when the bit rate levels are lower than the bit rate of the video file? Will I have to adjust the bit rate for each video file I watch? What settings will give me optimum playback quality for all video files remotely, over network and over wifi? Also, if someone wants to try and explain the direct play concept to me that would be wonderful. I cannot seem to find a file that will play directly even though many of my video files fit the h.264 aac encode description, maybe it is because I am using an iOS device... Thanks for any help you can give. This is confusing me and I would appreciate the insight.

    Transcoding MBT remotely

    HI, I ve just joined the forum and loving the new MBT. However im coming across a problem i hope someone can help with. If I use the web interface to play and watch my tv and films the server transcoding is working perfectly remotely from my laptop. However, If I use MBT, it seems to try and play the file direct (even though im not at home or on my LAN). Is there somehwere else other than the server web interface where i adjust the bitrate because id prefer to watch through MBt than over a browser? When using a browser, I can set the bitrate to 2 mbps which is ideal,however theres no options in MBT to do this, hence i think thats why its trying to stream directly which is never gonna work! thanks Jorrell
  15. I got a Chromecast last week and have been testing it to maybe take the job as a media player in the living room. First thing I notice is transcoding was needed for most my media, a bummer, but not a big deal. However I've had mixed results. My server is a 3.2ghz xeon sandy bridge WHS2011. I did a test and cpu use on the 4 cores are 80-90%, ~50%, ~40%, ~30% - total about 50% when transcoding. But the result is not very good, picture quality is ok, but video is not smooth. Now I know it's a issue with Chromecast only doing 60hz but it's not that. So, since my Freenas has plex as plugin I did a test there, it's also transcoding, cpu use is about the same (same cpu), but quality and smoothness is excellent, very close to original. As far as I can tell it's as good as the original and only the judder from not running native hz a issue. My MB3 transcoding is set to Max Quality. Is it possible to tweak transcoding ? I've tried several different bitrate settings in the app for chromecast but videosmoothness is allways the same (not smooth) only picture quality is different.
  16. Hello All I am experiencing an issue with all my formats(all are in m2ts) not being able to transcode. The other night I was able to watch movies and tv shows in mediabrowser classic on my xbox360 extender just fine. Although in the morning I get an error stating "Transcode Error Could not start the transcoding process" I tried to play a few different movies as well as different tv shows and receive the same error on my extender. I can get the videos to play on my desktop, through the web interface and in the iOS app, just not the extender. I have went into the configurator and attempted to play files with transcode360 turned off and on (it has always been on) and still cannot get any files to play. Any insight will be appreciated MBClassic-732014d25e2feb77924a0d8937258fc55aa5aa.log
  17. I am enjoying the functionality of MB Server, MB Classic and MB for Android -- many thanks to all developers! I have re-ripped my DVDs and Blu-Rays into MKV containers with the original CODECs for video and audio (some MPG2, some AVC, some VC1, some Dolby TrueHD, some DTS-MA, etcetera). When playing on my CinemaPC media center computers (Win7x64) with all the necessary CODECs available, performance is of course flawless and not a burden on any of the processors. When streaming to Android, the burden on the MB Server's CPU is about 90% throughout the streaming, and responsiveness of the Android client is very slow if I attempt to advance along the timeline. I can surely adjust the bitrates in the Android client, but do not want to bump it up above the level where pauses will occur while streaming over non-wifi connection (Verizon 4G typically). I'm posting my MB Server specs below, and ask anyone's help in understanding the parameters, variables, or factors that I might consider as I try to improve Android client performance. Intel i5-2500k at 3.0GHz, 8GB RAM, nvidia 430 MB Server 3.0.5171.19958 MB Classic 3.0.129.0 2-12.2 MB Android 1.0.19
  18. @@Tikuf asked to report any issues we may see when playing full DVD rips but let me start by saying that I'm very happy with the new server build and want to thank all devs involved. I've tried playback of 10 DVD's (Only music DVD's as all my movies are mp4's) and I must say I'm very happy with the result! While playing the DVD's on my ipad or with Google Chrome the menus are skipped and playback is started at chapter 1 while in MBT the menus are started, just the way I want it, great! (Now if this: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/4958-fr-server-dvd-chapter-extraction/ is possible I would be extremely happy because I can then start the song I'd like to see and hear) I did find two minor issues; - When I stop a dvd on my ipad I get an error after 5 seconds saying: Movie can not be loaded (not sure if it's the exact words, translated from Dutch it has to be something like that) - The DVDsubs languages are not recognized: Thanks! (Maybe a mod can move this post to the server section, after posting I realized I was in the wrong place)
  19. Hi Guys, fantastic how MB3's coming along!! just wanted to make you aware not sure if it's just me but since the adding of the transcoding options etc i seem to get slight tearing in the video on the web client, it doesn't skip/stutter at all and it seems to be any video extension type, it may be my setup but i have tried changing settings but still get it now and again. it's only a slight tearing just thought i'd let you know. tried all variations of transcoding server side, high cpu/low/auto and web client 720p - 1.5 upto 10Mbps. Current Versions MB3 Server: 3.0.5131.34392 Browser: Chrome 32.0.1700.95 Running on Hardware: OS: Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials CPU: Intel i7 4770K running idle apart from mb3 streaming
  20. Hi, I'm looking for a suggestion on building (or repurposing) a machine. Most of the ones that I've read have been general purpose machines for a lot of things. I'm really just looking for a machine that will be able to run MB3 server and transcode and stream up to a max of 8 different movies at the same time. There will be other programs running but minor ones. Is Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 preferred? Does it matter? Clients 2-3 MBT or MBC on Local LAN - Direct Play - No transcoding 2 - Local LAN Roku 3 - Local Wireless IOS 1 - Remote Roku 2 - Remote IOS I know these might not all be supported at this time but I want to take into account all of this for future overhead and not have to build again. Everything will be streamed from a NAS that is connected via gigabit ethernet. Mostly Movies and TV. Movies all 1080p source and TV is 720p source. My goal is not the break the bank but I'd like to get the best quality parts I can for the money right now as I'd rather not have to upgrade it in 2 years. Thanks for the help Josh
  21. I'm going to build a new server and use a Asus H87I-Plus itx board and need to pick a cpu to go with it. I was looking at getting a dual core Pentium G3220 but notice that the i3 cpus included Hyperthreading. Will the additon of hyperthreading be useful for transcoding? The i3 is about twice as much as the G3220 right now and rather not spend the money if it will not be of much benefit. From what I have been able to look up, both should be as good as or better than a Core2Duo 8500 correct?
