Over at http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1124287 folks are getting fatigued and inundated with questions and posts regarding the recently added DLNA/UPnP functionality.
Post your questions and comments here and hopefully someone will have the answer.
*Can this player stream digital media from network sources?
Yes, as of official firmware released January 5th, 2010. This feature is currently experimental This feature can be accessed from the "My Network" icon in the "Home Menu" screen. It requires a DLNA-capable media server running on your computer. The supported media types are the common set of what the player can decode and what the media server can stream.
*What formats are supported?
Different formats are available for media streaming than playback from USB devices. They currently are:
*Media Server configuration
Most media servers will serve up video which is supported by Oppo's DLNA implementation. Other formats require transcoding.
TVersity can be configured to stream compatible formats and transcoding unsupported video to MPEG video/MP3 audio.
- Install TVersity and the supplied codec pack.
- Add this code to the end of "profiles.xml" found in "C:\\Program Files\\TVersity\\Media Server":
(It's very possible that the profile id may vary from machine to machine. Needs verification.)Code:
Oppo BDP-83 Disc Player Oppo Digital Inc BDP-83
- Then restart the server.
Twonkymedia Server can be configured to stream compatible formats and transcode unsupported video. The transcoding documentation is poor. Many have reported issues getting it to work.
- Edit the clients.db file in C:\\Program Files\\TwonkyMedia\
esources\\ and insert the following text before the final ">>":
(for Mac "Show Package Contents" of TwonyMediaServer.app to find this folder)Code:
>> NA:Oppo Digital BDP-83 BluRay player HH:BDP-83 TR:JPEG_HD,LPCM,MP3,VOB,WMV,MPG,PNG DB:FIX
- You will need to edit the *.location files in the /cgi-bin directory to match the paths of the binary files (i.e. "C:\\Program Files\\ffmpeg"). Notice: No trailing slash is necessary.
- The included *.desc files will provide basic transcoding. Additional may be needed.
- You may also need to add some MIME descriptions to the "transcoding.db" file in the same directory.Code:
# additional for BDP-83 MKV,mkv,video/x-matroska MKV,mkv,video/mkv VOB,vob,video/dvd AVI,avi,video/x-msvideo DIVX,divx,video/divx AAC,m4a,audio/x-aac FLAC,flac,audio/x-flac OGG,ogg,application/ogg MKA,mka,audio/x-matroska
Asset from Illustrate (makers of DBPowerAmp) make a transcoding audio server that will serve and transcode to LPCM, even 24-bit FLAC and Apple Lossless. While the Oppo does not display bitrate via UPnP, Asset is sending at the appropriate rate without transcoding. 5.1 FLAC does not play correctly. Another user posted his experience here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...postcount=2829
Foobar2000 have UPnP component add-on for their popular music player/library. Foobar will stream 96/24 LPCM for files with 2.0, 4.0, 5.0 channel.
See This Post for more details.
PS3 Media Server version 1.20 (currently SVN) will have player profile capability. There is a compiled Mac beta here: http://ps3mediaserver.org/forum/view...php?f=7&t=1635. Once you compile the SVN, drop into the java/renderers path (Mac build: "/Applications/PS3\\ Media\\ Server.app/Contents/Resources/Java/renderers/") a new file for the oppo, e.g. OppoBDP83.conf. Save as a text with the following code:
# ps3mediaserver renderer profile for Oppo BDP-83 # Refer to PS3.conf for help RendererName=Oppo BDP-83 RendererIcon=pch.png UserAgentSearch=BDP-83 Video=true Audio=true Image=true SeekByTime=false TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3 TranscodeAudio=PCM DefaultVBVBufSize=true MuxH264ToMpegTS=true MuxDTSToMpeg=true WrapDTSIntoPCM=false MuxLPCMToMpeg=false MaxVideoBitrateMbps=0 MaxVideoWidth=0 MaxVideoHeight=0 H264Level41Limited=true TranscodeExtensions=hdmov,hdm,flac,fla,dts,ogg,asf,asx,m2v,m4a,mov,mp4,iso,avi StreamExtensions=mkv,jpg,mp3,mpg,pcm,png,vob
From there, You will be able to stream MKV and transcoding AVI. User kwolfman had success streaming ISOs as well. See his post: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=116.
Nearly any other UPnP/DLNA server will work (e.g. PlayOn, Playback, etc.) but will only be able to stream files natively playable via UPnP on the Oppo.
