already for a couple of days I am trying to get transcoding in TwonkyServer 8 working. And I got a couple of questions I hope you answer.
By the way: I tried to use the search function but every single term I tried, the board replied with "the term is too common". Maybe some admin could fix that...
-Windows 8 PC with installed Twonky 8.
-Grundig 50 VLE 921 BL smart TV. (Friendly name: Inter@ctive)
The handbook says that the TV supports the following formats for DLNA:
Video: MPEG_PS_NTSC, MPEG_PS_PAL, MPEG_TS_SD_EU, MPEG_TS_EU_ISO
Audio: AAC_ADTS_320, LPCM, MP3
Pictures: JPEG_LRG, JPEG_MED, JPEG_SM
I tried to stream a .mkv file to the TV.
FFMPEG tells me about the file: Video: h264, Audio: DTS
When I stream the file, video is fine but there is no audio.
Here is what I tried to do:
First I created a Grundig_Interactive.xml with the following content and put in the resources/devicedb/Grundig folder.
The TV is detected like that even though there are now two entries in the device list but both with the same name.
1. In Twonky versions before 7 there seemed to be a ffmpeg.location file in cgi-bin to specify the ffmpeg location. Is this file still needed or where should I put the ffmpeg.exe?
2. In cgi-bin there is already a ffmpeg-m4v-mpeg.desc so I don't need to do there anything, right?
3. Is my .xml file correct? So twonky knows that it has to transcode my example movie when I start streaming it?
I really hope you can help me get this running and I am sure that this will help other people, too.
