Topic: Best program for converting AVI or MPEG to MPEG-TS
Replies: 2

I've been using NeroVision Express (part of Nero 6 ) to convert my AVIs to DVD VOBs, then use VLC to convert the VOB to a TS. The transcoding takes quite some time, so I usually queue up 4 or five videos per "DVD" then let it do it's magic over night. Aside from the time it takes (typically takes ab...

Excellent! I'm glad it worked for you. I remember tearing my hair out for several days configuring and re-configuring my network, before I found that answer.

Enjoy!

I had the same problem with a few of my computers. Turns out the problem was with the default security configuration on Windows 2003. To get it to work, I had to disable SMB packet and secure channel signing, by doing the following (per http://www.digitalissues.co.uk/html/os/ms/smb2000.html): To dis...

I have to ask... why are you torturing yourselves with converting program streams to transport streams. I was actually referring more to AVIs that I've converted, and a few TS files that had choppy audio. As for using CinemaSix, I actually find it more annoying to lose audio sync when it switches t...

Anyone else using TStoATSC3 to get audio playing proper with luck? TStoATSC3 almost always works for me when I have audio drop-outs. I typically use an offset of -4000. The few times it's not worked for me, the stream has had AC3 5.1 audio, and the only way I could fix it was to mix it down to 2 ch...

I may be wrong, but it doesn't look like the ViewSonic solution supports native HD video. It says it auto-detects and scales video up to the native resolution of the connected display (via DVI), but doesn't, in any of the literature I've read, specifically mention anything about HD data. I'd be inte...

I attempted all kinds of configurations with 54g to stream video to my roku... I was only able to get a decent stream with low bitrate HD stuff, which really isn't worth it, in my opinion. With decent quality HD streams, I just couldn't get acceptable playback, so I ended up running Cat 5e through m...

I have named all my playlists starting with a_ such as a_playall.m3u in the belief that the playlists would be sorted at the top of the album list. It's probably important to note that sorting is case sensitive. As I've noticed with my music folders, files and folders starting with a lowercase lett...

Also, can I just have a main folder shared (i.e., Media) that has picutre, music, etc. subfolders, or do I need to share each individual folder under that main folder? In Windows, when you share a folder, all of the subfolders are automatically shared as subfolders with it, unless you specifically ...

I ran across this post to the old Roku mailing lists the other day. It might help you out. http://lists.rokulabs.com/pipermail/roku-tech/2004/001356.html Note: As I understand it, MpegPSPlay is the old name for CinemaSix. In the step by step, rather than running it from the linux command line, you s...
