[SOLVED] Codec: MPEG-4 Video (DX50)

Good evening!

Tried to search through the forum for my issue, but no success, so starting a ne thread...

I have a Sony Bravia KDL-50w817b. Serviio has Sony TV 2013/14 profile choosen.

When i try to watch *.avi files on my TV with codec DX50 - i get only sound, no picture and "unsupported content" message on-screen

alike file but with XVID plays just fine and all of that files was playing just OK at my old KDL-40ex500 TV, seems with transcoding or what... anyways is there any chance to make it work?

PS. what option is better for audio channel - keep original or downmix to stereo, if i have soundbar connected with TV via optical cable? soundbar supports DD, DTS and has 7.1 emulation.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Codec: MPEG-4 Video (DX50)

I suppose that "Sony Bravia 2013/2014" profile was selected on serviio console ?


You can try to edit the ./serviio/config/profiles.xml file then edit the 2013/2014 profile section like this (from serviio 1.5 version):

  Code:
   <Profile id="sony2013" name="Sony Bravia TV (2013/14)" extendsProfileId="1">
      <!-- this is WIP, should be included in the inheritance tree if possible -->
      <!-- 2013 models

             - Still images: JPEG (*.jpg / *.jpe / *.jpeg), MPO (*.mpo), RAW (*.arw)
             - Music: LPCM, MP1L1 / MP1L2 / MP1L3 / MP2L1 / MP2L2 / MP2L3 / MP2.5L3 (*.mp3), AAC-LC / HE-AAC v1/v2 (*.mp4 / *.m4a / *.3gp / *.3g2), WMA9 (*.wma)

I just add these lines :
<!-- DivX -->
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="mpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />
<Matches container="avi" vCodec="msmpeg4" vFourCC="div3,div4,div5,divx,dm4v,dx50" />

Then you can first start to simply add vFourCC="dx50" value and if you see some other problem, add other div3, div4... values.

After profiles.xml editing, you have to restart serviio service (not server) or reboot the PC to reload profile.

Think it has to be CIS region for this w817b, as I am from Belarus and TV was assembled in Russia.
