Re: MPEG2 support: patent expires worldwide, almost

Since it already exists in the Roku TV firmware, I would assume it would be simple to add. But you know what assume stands for!  :lol:

Interesting, would it be possible to add to existing players (from Roku 3 to Ultra)?  More options for USB/LAN playback, possible HDHomeRun app, etc.

Re: synology media server

yea it must be that my synology is not transcoding mpeg2 to 264 which I'm trying to do. I'll have to play with that more... or use handbrake to transcode mpeg2 to. 264

Thanks for the pointers I think I see what's going on

Im not an expert, but DVD rips with makemkv should be mpeg2  no? .  the synology 918+  has enough horsepower to transcode a single 4k stream in software without using the native hardware transcoding of the celeron j3455 processor.   I can play all ...

Re: MPEG2 support: patent expires worldwide, almost

Please add this feature, many of us have begged and even offered to pay to get this.

Why? At least for me, I want to be able to stream OTA or cable TV without the need to encode it.

MPEG2 support: patent expires worldwide, almost

Roku, the US patent for the MPEG2 video codec has expired. How about adding this codec support into your stand-alone players now? Your TVs have it, so you already know how to implement it.  . From  TechRepublic post: With this expiration, ...

Re: Is Roku4 DLNA compatible with Netgear? Roku 2 and 3 are not

What atc98092 said. What container and codecs are being used? Rokus, other than RokuTVs, don't currently support H.262 ("mpeg2") video. I play H.264 (mpeg4) video in mkv containers all the time with my Roku, off a miniDLNA (now renamed to ReadyMedia) server, which is what Netgear ...

I would gladly pay for a codec package to add MPEG2 video and TrueHD/Master Audio bitstream audio. Don't know if I'd go so far as new equipment. Of course, if you want MPEG2 decoding in a Roku, ...

Re: Are the Roku Player & TCL TV Software & Build the same?

Both of my Roku TVs see my DLNA servers with no issues. The added benefit of a Roku TV is that they support MPEG2 video, and therefore those files don't require transcoding. The TVs do not support DTS audio, so you either need that audio transcoded to ac3 or aac, or connect your ...

Re: ROKUs can't see my NAS

... is that VLC is acting as a DLNA server. Since VLC can play almost anything, it's probably streaming the DVD video codec as something other than MPEG2, which no Roku supports (other than the Roku TVs). Yep, just did a quick check. Not certain if they are using the DLNA protocol, but honestly ...
