Why transcode when usign MB Theatre


Recommended Posts

I have started to play around with the live TV element of MB using NextPVR as the back-end (I don't have Windows Media Centre so I understand this means I can't use ServerWMC?).


Everything seems to work reasonably well, however I noticed that when using the MB Theatre application (streaming rate set as 15mbps) the content is always transcoded (both SD MPEG2 and HD h264) - Since we are streaming to a pretty powerful machine with all LAV filters installed, why do we have to transcode the file first?

MBT is the first of our apps that can direct play it, and it just hasn't been implemented yet. 

Hi Luke,


When do you think this will be implemented? I hope to remove WMC ASAP!!!! :)
