Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

That TV appears to support the same media that older Samsung sets do, so transcoding is certainly an option. However, I have to warn you that my JU7100 refuses to play any video that is transcoded. I don't know if that has been resolved with the newer sets, but wanted to bring it up.

So, first try the Samsung M series profile. It's the most recent Samsung profile, and should have you well covered.

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

I tried all the samsung profiles but none worked. what do I have to change in the profiles.xml so that transcoding is enabled for .avi (xvid and divx).

EDIT:

if I switch to the profile "panasonic foura 2013" then I can watch avi with xvid but then go uhd content no longer.
I then added
<Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetVCodec="mpeg2video" targetACodec="ac3" aBitrate="384">
<Matches container="avi" /> <!-- Remove this line for models that natively support AVI's with Xvid video (some ST60's) -->
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="mpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="msmpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="dvvideo" />
</Video>


to the profile E / F player profile but then the menu for profile is empty

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

I'm unfamiliar with the DivX and xvid video codecs, so can't offer any suggestions for those. I'll have to let someone else answer.

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

Good work, and nice troubleshooting! :D

Don't forget that the profiles.xml file is replaced every time Serviio is updated. You can create your own personal profile file that isn't overwritten:
If you want to have your profile changes persisted across upgrades, you can add new profiles to a file config/user-profiles.xml. All the syntax and rules described below apply to this file as well.

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

icreate a new file with user-profiles.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Profiles version="1.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="http://www.serviio.org/xsd/profiles/v/1.9.1/Profiles.xsd">

<ModelNumber>(1\.0)|(AllShare1\.0)</ModelNumber>
</UPnPSearch>
<HttpHeaders>
<!-- some models only support headers -->
<User-Agent>(.*SEC_HHP_\[TV\] [A-Z]{2}\d{2}M[A-Z]?\d{3,4}.*)</User-Agent>

</Detection>
<Transcoding>
<Video targetContainer="mpegts" targetVCodec="mpeg2video" targetACodec="ac3" aBitrate="384">
<Matches container="avi" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="mpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="msmpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="dvvideo" />
</Video>
</Transcoding>
</Profile>
</Profiles>


and now my brand new Samsung Q9FN is in the menu and he play XVID, DIVX...
all Samsung models from the year 2018 are no longer playing DivX and DTS for licensing reasons

is it possible with serviio transcoded by a video only the DTS sound?

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

Add
  Code:
<Matches container="*" aCodec="dca" />
            <Matches container="*" aCodec="dts-hd" />   
after the <Matches container="avi" vCodec="dvvideo" />statement. This will transcode any file that has either DTS (dca) and DTS-HD.

This will do the job, but you may be better off only re-muxing the video (this would mean that you would hve to basically copy the whole sam_j profile and mdify that, as you wont be able to use inheritance like you have).

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

The file for the user profile should be called user-profileS.xml. I spent some time to notice it. Thanks.

And that's exactly what I posted above, which was a copy and paste from the Serviio web site. :D

Re: Transcoding and Brand new Samsung Q9FN

Hi all,
I bought a Samsung Q7FN on last (black) friday. I also recognized that old DivX and XViD moviez couldn't be played anymore.

So I searched the serviio forum and found that thread here. But Quarktasche's profile does not lead to the right profile recognition within the my Serviio console for my Q7FN.

I also recognized that within his regular expression still the "M" of the M-Series is placed. Also the regular expression itself does not fit to the Q-Series model name I think.

Mine is "GQ55Q7FNG" which should have so following regular expression within the ModelName-XML-Tag:

<ModelName>(^[A-Z]{2}\d{2}Q\d[A-Z]{3}.*)</ModelName>


But again that does not change the recognition of my Samsung TV as "Generic DLNA profile" instead of "Samsung TV / player (Q-series)".

What is wrong and how is it possible to check the string that is needed for the UPnPSearch within the profiles.xml

Thanks in advance for any help.

Axelito

If you manually set the profile, Serviio will remember it and you don't have to set it again. However, if your TV changes IP addresses, then it will have to be set again on the new IP address. So it isn't critical that Serviio recognizes the model correctly.
