LG BD670 and FLAC

I have a problem playing FLAC on my BD670 over wifi. I can see all media files and MP3s are playing fine. In manual it said that BD670 supports LPCM.
I edited profile:
<Profile id="8" name="LG BD player" extendsProfileId="1">
<SubtitlesMimeType>text/srt</SubtitlesMimeType>
<Transcoding>
<Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="mp3">
<Matches container="matroska" aCodec="ac3" />
</Video>
<Audio targetContainer="lpcm">
<Matches container="flac" />
<Matches container="ogg" />
</Audio>
</Transcoding>
I tried to shot down my PC few times. I tried to change <Audio targetContainer="lpcm"> to mp3.
I even tried to remove and add back library folder. Nothing worked.
Please help!

Re: LG BD670 and FLAC

Try this :) making sure you remove all renderer from console and restart serviio completely ( remember to set this profile for the device in the console after you have restarted )

  Code:
<Profile id="8" name="LG BD player" extendsProfileId="1">
<SubtitlesMimeType>text/srt</SubtitlesMimeType>
<Transcoding>
         <Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="mp3">
            <Matches container="matroska" aCodec="ac3" />
         </Video>
         <Audio targetContainer="lpcm">
            <Matches container="flac" />
            <Matches container="ogg" />
            <Matches container="mp4" />
         </Audio>
</Transcoding>

Re: LG BD670 and FLAC

What doesn't work? The file is listed but doesn't play? Do you see any errors in the log? If not, enable detailed logging and try to play the file again, then post the log here.

I know LG had problems with transcoded video content, perhaps it has problems with audio too.

oh wow that would suck for LG users if you cant even transcode audio and make it play :(

Re: LG BD670 and FLAC

I removed profiles and at same time I found out that I could change "default profile" to my "LG ..." profile from drop-down box.
I did not see it in your manual.
I shot down my PC and when I opened serviio console my LG profile was added automatically.
I changed default profile to "LG" profile and I was able to play FLACs on my blue ray transcoded to mp3.
But when I tried to change mp3 to lpcm in xml file serviio crushed: serviio service would not start at all.
I tried multiple shut downs/restarts. I am working on re-installing it.
I will post update later.
Thanks.

Re: LG BD670 and FLAC

Lates update:
Transcoding FLAC to lpcm also worked. Nice!
Unfortunatelly WMA lossless is still not working. I saw at your forum some suggestions to add "asf" to transcoding:
<Audio targetContainer="lpcm">
<Matches container="asf" />
<Matches container="mp4" />
<Matches container="flac" />
<Matches container="ogg" />
</Audio>
But it didn't help. I can see files, but they simply will not play, and no error.
Can you please help me. Best case would be transcoding to lossless lpcm, but transcoding to mp3 would work too.
As for video files I was able to play avi, mkv, m4v.

And this:

  Code:

<SubtitlesMimeType>text/srt</SubtitlesMimeType>
<Transcoding>
         <Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetACodec="mp3">
            <Matches container="matroska" aCodec="ac3" />
         </Video>
         <Audio targetContainer="lpcm">
            <Matches container="flac" />
            <Matches container="ogg" />
            <Matches container="mp4" />
         </Audio>
         <Audio targetContainer="mp3">
            <Matches container="asf" />
         </Audio>
</Transcoding>

Re: LG BD670 and FLAC

Unfortunately wma lossless transcoding using "asf" to "mp3" didn't work: I could see files, looked like it was trying to load them.
At the end I converted my few wma lossless and one apple lossless album to FLAC. It was very fast using foobar2000.

Also, I don't know if you can consider issue as a bug: Serviio would not start if something wrong with profile.
At some point earlier I added wma to transcoding script in LG profile:
<Audio targetContainer="lpcm">
<Matches container="wma" />
</Audio>
And it crushed server.

Overall Serviio is very nice server. I would recommend in your "how to" pages add some screenshots especially related to profiles.
It will make them very user friendly.
And one more. Does serviio supports playing playlists? I didn't see this option in my BD670 (it could be LG problem).

Thank you!

Its not a bug of serviio, but bad profile edition...
Look at this Audio transcoding
Matches - specifies which media files will fall into a transcoding configuration and will therefore be processed by the transcoding engine; can be one or more, with the elements order being taken in consideration (the first matcher that fits a file is used)
Attributes:
container - compulsory; name of container; possible values: mp4, asf, mp3, lpcm, flac, ogg

So wma could not be used for the audio container Matches.
*.wma files are "asf" container.

EDIT: Serviio doesn't support WMA Lossless media : https://bitbucket.org/xnejp03/serviio/i ... e-lossless
