Just wondering if anyone has made any progress with MediaTomb or Fuppes with regards to transcoding. I'm really keen to see if i can stream content to the Nokia N810/N800
What exactly are you trying to transcode? I have very good sucess using the mythTV upnp server as well as fuppes (and thats with a busted config!) with no issues on my ps3. there is pretty good documentation on how to setup custom device profiles as well in their docs. I recommend checking them out. As far as mediatomb, i checked it out but the lack of 360 support makes it a non-starter imo.
If you post what your issues are, i will be more than happy to try and help you figure it out.
From what ive seen in my experience and as tschak has pointed out to me, upnp is pretty sloppy so those making devices make it quite difficult to know exactly what it specific requirements are. if you check out the fuppes config.
will take you to the project relevant docs.
You can see the specific vs general settings
also, dont miss http://fuppes.ulrich-voelkel.de/wiki/index.php?title=Device_specific_settings#video_transcoding
. This version, im assuming is compiled with transcoding support because i didnt need to re-compile. I dont remember if i needed to set the flag, but you can check to see if its enabled by
-going to the webadmin
-from top navigation
advanced ----> configuration -------> upnp server
-choose 'status' and a list of the configured options will come up.
this list will show you options enabled for filetypes for 'general' devices as well as specific ones. You can check there to see what the options are, and with the links above and knowledge of what your device can handle, create a custom profile if needed.
And check back, maybe if we get more people using the upnp stuff we can compile the config files into one larger one.
BTW vfolder.cfg is a whole other bag of worms i have yet to figure out. im still in the transcoding phase
