Hi,

 

I have just got premiere so i can try out the new UWP apps in the plan of fully moving over from Plex

 

On the Xbox One App and also the Desktop Store App I am finding all my recorded .ts (mpeg2video) files are transcoding, in Plex and also the default Windows app these play without transcoding

I have got the mpeg2video codec installed from MS

 

Can anyone help me in trying to get these files to play without transcoding (all recordings are in the same format)

 

i started playback at approx 11am (UK time)

 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply

 

I do have that installed, just tried uninstalling it and installing again but it makes no difference

 

The mpeg2 extension works for the built in Movies & TV app and allows the content to play, but Emby just transcodes it

 

On the xbox i am not sure if this is installable, i think support for mpeg2 is built it (cant find this item in the store)

Ok, it's the mp2 audio. It's not on our direct play list. We'll look at this for the next update of the app. thanks.

Just noticed the app has been updated

 

The above file now plays perfectly on my desktop through the app :)

 

The xbox one is still transcoding it though, i did notice it is on a lower version number than the desktop app, so perhaps the change hasnt hit it yet, if this should be playing it also i can provide new logs

 

Thanks

Hi

Should the xbox one have received the update to stop the transcoding?

 

Just tested today and i am still having the original problem, episode in first post is transcoding

 

For a test i modified the xbox one dlna profile (so i have a copy of the original) and added MP2 as a direct playable format, using the play to feature i get no transcoding, but with theater i do

 

I can get new logs if required, but the problem is the same as in the first post

 

Theater on my PC works fine now and does not transcode, this issue only affects the xbox one

 

Thanks

On Xbox we are blocked by an MS defect, once that is resolved we will be able to direct play this again. Thanks.
