Thanks for the quick response, I will give it a try.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong because I still can't play a transcoded file, automatically or with a manual transcode.

Did you set the profile to the one I've specified in the support e-mail?

The easiest way to solve this is if you could send in some logs. To enable logging, tick the "Enable Logging" item under the Tools menu. After that restart the server (using the toolbar) and try playing one FLAC file. After that stop the server and send the logs to the support e-mail. To find the folder with the logs, go to Tools -> Options -> File Locations and click the Open button on the Logs folder.

I'm sure it's something very simple smile.gif

Great, thanks! I've sent you a reply via support. Probably it'll be best if we keep the support going through the support e-mail and not here, so as not to hijack the thread smile.gif

Alternatively, we could start a new thread, something like "KooRaRoo Support" here on the forum, but I don't know if the mods will allow that.

No joy yet. This is the thread for DLNA on an Oppo BDP-83 and that is what we are talking about so I don't think it will be a problem to document our progress for the others that have a 83.

Maybe just a summary when you figure it out.

Hello to all, as it is very difficult to follow through all 74 pages and got myself lost through the various technicalities, is it possible please to give me an answer to the following. I have an offer for a 83 player and my main concern and question I am looking an answer for is if the oppo 83 can finally play files (e.g. hd video .mkv with external .srt subtitles) via ethernet stored in a NAS.
I just need to know if it is actually possible so i can proceed to purchase it and then I promise that I will do a more in depth reading to find out how to set up the whole system. Then most probably i will come back with exact technical inquiries!
Thanks for the support.

Access over the network would be via DLNA, which does not support external subtitles. (Not commonly at least; someone posted that they have TV which was doing it, but the OPPO doesn't).

If you merge your subtitles into the MKV they would work.

AVC is a supported codec in MKV, but there were some restrictions on the parameters; I'm not recalling the details at the moment.

Hidef audio codecs are not supported in MKV.

See the FAQ section for more details: Media Files

Media file support was improved in the BDP-93 and BDP-103 players.

Can anyone tell me if there is a device profile for the BDP-83 on for Plex? It's a really, really fantastic media player and I'm really hoping there is. Thanks!

I believe it should all be working ok now - we've sorted out all issues with the device a while back.

Does the BDP-83 have digital media renderer capability where I can use something like jriver to push a music file to it?

No, nor does the 93/95 line - you need a 103 or 105 for that.

Once I figured out how to set up an alphabet tree of folders on my server, with five branches of five or six letters, each then branching to individual letters, it became easy enough to pull a media file using the player's interface, navigating up and down that tree, rather than scrolling endlessly.

I'm sticking with my 93, since it has a composite video output (a single RCA jack) to drive a small LCD display - sold as a car seat back monitor to entertain kiddies with DVDs on long trips - to use as a music dashboard without firing up my projector - the 103/105 series has ditched that output completely.

Finally got my JRiver Media Center 18 and JRiver Media Server installed, configured and stable. With my 83SE not a renderer, I went and tried to use my Micca EP600G2 Media Streamer as a zone to push to. Reliability was about a 3 out of 10. JRiver seemed happy but random music stoppages for no discoverable reason. Even worse, I downloaded My River for iPad, which is a remote control app for JRiver. Found it on the 105 thread, users raving for a few months until JRiver released 18 when My River became unstable and not yet corrected. Constant freezes of My River with constant program not responding by JRiver.

Solution found yesterday! I ordered my new Oppo BDP-105 online from Oppo store with 2nd Day FEDEX. Put my BDP-83SE for sale on Audiogon and AVSForum.

This morning I downloaded JRemote for iOS , another App for the iPhone or iPad to control JRiver Media Server. Simple installation, it worked properly first time and have been using it for last 3 hours, choosing playlists, choosing tracks, shuffling, all without one single freeze up using the Micca EP600G2. Betting the 105 will be almost 100% stable, and it even has support which has virtually evaporated for the Micca.

Will this topic be expanded to include DLNA/UPnP discussions for the 105?

I'd say go ahead. We direct all the OPPO DLNA discussions here regardless of model. The thread title should be changed.

Hi,
I've had an Oppo BDP-83 for at least 3 years now. I love it. I never knew that it had the ability to access and play/view videos and photos on my home network until I saw this thread. I've been using it to play actual DVDs and BRs.

I was in the market for a media streamer/player, but now I have doubts if I need one now. I have many video files I've created that I store on my NAS, but my older Xbox wasn't able to play many of them. That's the reason I was looking at dedicated media players such as Dune, Mede8er, Pivos, etc.

As it turns out, my Oppo BDP-83 plays them all. I am excited about that.

Having said that, I almost was about to purchase a Dune media player. I have no way to do a side by side comparison but would I expect a dedicated media player such as Dune to result in better quality that what I see now from the Oppo?

Has anyone compared the Oppo media/view streaming to a dedicated media player?

Thanks in advance,
Steve
post #2209 of 2522
I have not done a side by side with a Dune. Yesterday I set up a new OPPO 103 to replace my 83 which I have had for about 3 years. It so much more capable than the 83, it includes HDMI in so I can run the Dish receiver through it and the difference is amazing. I stream to it with Playback and it is very responsive. I saw a price for the DUNE HD at 319, for 500 you can have a new OPPO 103, and sell the 83 for 300 on Ebay. Others may think the DUNE has additional capabilities that the 103 doesn't have but I can't think of any that matter. ron

In terms of video quality, there's no question the Oppo is a better choice for SD video (DVD) or anything else needing scaling. That said, the Dune is a true media management box with features that the Oppo doesn't dare dream of. For starters, Dune offers direct access to any shared file on your network, where the Oppo 83 depends on a DNLA server program to serve and probably transcode. The Oppo BDP-103 comes a lot closer, with SMB support and a much better list of supported file formats. The Dune can also act as NAS and even has DNLA server capability.

So you're comparing apples and oranges here, with a full featured media box vs a simple DNLA renderer. Your NAS is using a DNLA server which is likely transcoding all audio and some video to supported formats for the 83. Transcoding always results in some loss of quality. So while the Dune can play any file without transcoding, it also has lesser quality scaling of video.

As was mentioned, it depends on the DLNA server you are using and which files it transcodes and which sends natively. The Oppo 83 can play most popular formats natively, so they should be sent through in their original form, thus you won't see any difference in quality.

Hoping our moderator can update the name of this thread to include Oppo 105 and 103 as those new players are generating lots of DLNA and uPnP questions on the main oppo 105 thread.

Tonight was finally able to make time to use DVD-audio extractor software to convert my first ten DVD-A MLP 96/24 6 channel and 2 channel discs into multi-channel FLAC files. made a 96/24 stereo and a separate 96/24 5.1 album files so I can easily switch back and forth to compare using jriver server and Jremote. Extraction speed is dependent on your computer CPU speed. My CPU is intel 980 extreme slightly over clocked. Extraction uses about six or seven CPU cores. Mormon tabernacle choir handel's messiah took about 24 minutes. Eagles hotel California took about 16 minutes.

Pushing the multi channels to my 105 via dlna/uPnP is something I strongly recommend you enjoy. Oppo Analog 5.1 output to my ssp-800 in 5.1 bypass sounds as good as I imagined. The ease of choosing tracks and seeing bit depth and sampling rate and channel info all on the iPad now playing with my Kuro shut off makes the sound quality and intimacy of the music more enjoyable.

DIana Krall, the look of love. Bucky pizzarelli, swing live. The eagles, hotel California. I am very impressed with the audio quality of these MLP extractions to FLAC so far.

Is it possible to output video from a NAS, into an Oppo, most likely the 93, use the Oppo's video processing, before sending on to displays (TV/ projector)?

The NAS will be a HP micro server; and the formats/ codecs include bluray, mkv, avi, etc

I'm new to all this. Intending to catch up to the 21st century .. smile.gif

I could search more through the thread, but if someone could give a pointer or two I'd really appreciate it

I expect a few hassles .. No idea yet how many . .

Maybe off topic, but - I'd also prefer to output the digital audio off the NAS, into a DSP for speaker crossovers, which I know a bit about smile.gif

Thanks
Rick

The server will be JRiver run by JRemote

Does a 103 support formats better than a 93?

Would it be best to input into the Oppo's 10/ 100? USB? HDMI?

Thanks

Some of your questions are answered in the FAQs. For the BDP-103:


See the separate BDP-93 FAQ if you are considering that model; it has different media file and DLNA support.
