samsung profile not working as in v1.5

Ive just upgraded to latest serviio version 1.6 and the profile for Samsung TV / player (C/D-series) doesn't seem to be working as it should.
With the profile chosen, when I play an mp4 video it doesn't show the correct duration and I can not skip forward or back.
I change the profile to generic and it shows the time correctly and allows me to skip forward or back.

my tv is UA55D7000
There was no problem with earlier versions.

Thanks for looking into this issue.

Re: samsung profile not working as in v1.5

It obviously is playing natively under generic, but being transcoded by the C/D profile. That indicates if the file is an avc/aac, it is probably encoded showing a false avc level > 4.2 which forces transcoding. To confirm this you need to post the ffmpeg output for the file or you can edit the level and if so change it to 4.1 with this tool http://wiki.serviio.org/doku.php?id=avceditor

I ran the utility but errors out (Can't find any AVC profile!)

here is the output of ffmpeg as requested:

You need to use the latest version 1.5 from the authors site, not the old 1.1 link in the wiki.

It might be related to a bug, which will be fixed in 1.6.1

Re: samsung profile not working as in v1.5

If the utility errs out, there must be something wrong with how the leve was encoded in the file, so serviio must be assuming it is > 4.2 and so is transcoding. You would need to look at the debug log to see what it is doing.

I just noticed that serviio is transcoding the file even if the transcoding option is off.
This never happened in 1.5. Everything played fine. Must be the bug that ZIP referred to.
