Music (mp3) playback transcoding after first title / Pictures

Recommended Posts


Not sure if this is App related but I would guess so...


When I start a title in the Music section, for example the first title of an album, the tracks starts imediatly and with Direct Stream - no transcoding visible in the server, when the app switches to the next title of the album or if I hit "next" it takes a while until the title starts, and when it starts there is suddenly transcoding of the title. Nothing special, just 128kbit stereo mp3 titles. 



When I start the Picture section, I get the overview of the folders but when I select one, most of the time the app switches to the title menu after a while and not showing the selected picture.


I am running the app on a 2011 D-series BluRay player

I reported a similar issue with playing wma files.  Streams the first song in a playlist/album just fine, but with wma it never plays the next song.  Just locks up after trying to transcode it

To push this up again because it is still happening, here is the transcoding log of one file.

As said, this only happens at the second track of a folder / album, the first played never transcodes.

The bug in the pictures section is still there.

Can anyone test if this happens to other users?
