modify transcode puffer

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

would it be possible to implement the feature that allows me to modify the transcode buffer in the GUI. Currently the buffer is bending between 2:00 min and 1:40 while throttle is active. I wish i could set the bending range e.g. to 4:00 to 5:00 by myself.

 

Thx for considering

You can modify the "puffer" yourself already by editing the encoding.xml file in the config folder under programdata.

 

In the file you need to find the Throttle"Puffer" setting and change it from 120 secs to whatever you want.

Thx for the answer, I will try this out.

Oh, i can't access the file, because I run the server on a Synology DS. 

 

So, this isn't a solution and I will mark it as unsolved.

Then you're going to have to SSH into the box. The file you're looking for, should be in /var/packages/EmbyServer/target/var/

 

I'm doing this from memory, so I could be wrong, but I think there's a config folder there. I always have Nano installed on my Syno boxes so I can just nano the file

Ok, I SSH to the syno but i can't find anything related to the emby server. I am just not deep enough in the linux structures and commands. 

 

So I will specify my request a little bit more:

 

" ... would it be possible to implement the feature that allows me to modify the transcode puffer over GUI."

 

Thx

Did you look where Frosty told you to?

 

Dont give up, explore.  The file will be there somewhere.

Oh, and WinSCP is a whole lot easier if you like Explorer

 

If you've never used WinSCP I created a little help for it awhile back on how to set it up

1. Thx for response and I found the file.

2. I am on a mac so I use the terminal tool.

3. I can't modify the file, because it's write protected. (see screenshot)

 

 

EDIT: Forget it. When I go root it works.

 

P.S. Do you know how the throtle hysteris works? What does the written 8 means?

Not sure what you mean.

 

Does it matter?

 

Does it work?

The larger buffer works like expected.

Still the buffer is refilled every 15 sec and the hysteresis setting is at 8 sec, so I don't get it how this works.

Well you want the buffer to be full!

 

If its filling the buffer thay means your system is transcoding way above real time which is good news. Plenty of CPU to spare.

 

What problem in terms of playback are you experiencing?
