I hadn't gotten around to trying Serviio yet...
so I installed ffmpeg with apt-get, then downloaded the serviio pkg..
Added 2 folders of video.. and fired up my Sony Network Media player. It saw the server, AND there is a FOLDER view (nice!)... as the ultimate test, I tried to play a BluRay rip... hm.. not so much. Stutter stutter stutter (configured to use 2 cores for transcode, but top only showed 10% CPU usage). Couldn't connect to the server after that.. so I restarted it, and un-ticked the "best video quality" box on the transcoding tab, and tried again... still no dice.
So I went downstairs to GoogleTV, and no stutter.. video looks good...but I was getting the wrong audio track.. per a post I found in the serviio forums, it appears there is no way to pick which audio track you want.. so if you rip more than 1, and its not the default, tough cookies
So, is there any easy way to strip out the other audio tracks, or am I essentially looking at a full run thru Handbrake anyway?
From some quick googling, dlna may not support picking audio tracks, which is unfortunate.
