Hello,

is it possible that one can solve this via transcoding?

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.

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

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.

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.

icreate a new file with user-profiles.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<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?

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).

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
