Video error on playback - Transcoding


Recommended Posts



Having trouble getting a mkv rip to play in the web client, or anything else that transcodes.


Movie was ripped to mkv yesterday with DVDFab and regardless of it having 3D in a description in one of the log files it is not a 3D movie.


Originally ripped the 2D disc yesterday and had the same issue so I retried it with the 3D ISO and "converted" it to 2D with DVDFab.


I am positive that I tried another rip yesterday that did the same thing but at this moment I cannot find it, I will keep looking.


I cleared out my logs and restarted the server and then played the mkv through the web client.





EDIT: The mkv plays fine via direct play


EDIT 2: re-ripped to mkv and removed the TRUEHD 7.1 track. mkv now has AC3 audio and transcodes just fine.

The problem crashkelly described and logged above still exists today


Both android and kodi clients will not playback anything (audio/video) when a TrueHD Atmos audio track is selected


In android you can bypass this quite easily by selecting the audio track you prefer to play, but in Kodi it's not a currently implemented feature to switch audio tracks . . . so atmos films are usually going to fail since it will just pick up the first audio track


This is becoming slightly more of a problem with more and more releases using Atmos http://www.dolby.com/us/en/experience/dolby-atmos/bluray-and-streaming.html and will only continue to grow

I haven't had this problem till this morning. Is this on the server side or the client side?  I just started using the Fire TV version.



Edit: Sorry, I'm still on my first cup of coffee, I should have read your post better.
