Glad you're enjoying it!! How has playback been on all your files while streaming?

Does that mean you could access sites like JustinTV? That's a free site where you can access other user's video streams? I'm not sure how Mezzmo could do that though, since those sites require you to log in and then shows you a list of available streams (content like NCAA football games that aren't being shown in your area!).

It's quite possible as the boxee product already has this integration: http://forums.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=11416

What kind/speed CPU do you have? I haven't used the music function so it's good to hear that if I ever do in the future it works well. Be sure to post any feature requests in that dedicated section on their forum...they will listen.

When you run the problem file thru a program such as I posted above, it will tell you EXACTLY what video/audio codec was used...then you can further troubleshoot the problem. If you play a video file that works, and then you have a file that doesn't work (both having the same extension avi,mkv, etc.) you can easily view the difference and perhaps see the cause.

Thanks Navy, I know they packaging/codec terminology as it pertains to the containers, and I was going by the information found in the Samsung manual as to supported codecs, containers ans bitrates. I really must check out that program...

When I say I have played xxxx video files and haven't had a sync problem yet, I am not trying to boast. I am simply trying to say let's look into the problem because it's definitely not across the board. I have so far played AVI, MKV, etc. from different sources and I have not yet run into the sync issue. Some people have posted on various forums for example that if their supported container has a bitrate over xxx the file will not play, or if they used audio codec xxxx within a supported container it would not play.

As I mentioned, I understand the contraints within which the containers and codec (including bitrates) must follow to be 'compatible'...

If we look at the information together perhaps we can find the underlying problem. If you have the ability to send these files to me that do not work I'd be happy to look into the issue for you as well. It is definitely not strange for you to be able to play it in WMP without issue. The Samsung interface is vastly different and it is very very very very picky. Whenever you have time run 2 bad AVI's for example thru MediaInfo and two good AVI's... see if you notice a pattern for either.

I would like to swap a couple of files with you, I'll send one that was really bad, and you send me one that works, to make the comparison a little more straight forward maybe we should stick with the same container? I just watched an epsode of CSI, a 720p MKV that was particularly awful regarding sync, do you have a 720p MKV for me to try?

Here is the result for the CSI I mentioned above, maybe the Video codec is causing the problem more then the audio? I would seem that although it should handle MP4 SP /ASP this file uses something slightly different: V_MPEG4/ISO/AVC

I'm grabbing that same exact file/episode you posted now to test. I get some TV shows from the same sources as you do, and have yet to run into a problem (720p mkv). While I grab this and perform a quick test, I wanted to ask, what version of the Samsung firmware are you using and what model? I didn't see if you are running it through a Blu-Ray type player or TV.
Perhaps I can PM you some shows/episodes that work fine for me and you can grab those from your usual place?..since they would in essence be the same files.

I have a Samsung PN58C550 (F/W 1016) connected via ethernet to a Gigabit switch, the same switch the Vista 32bit PC is connected to (PC Share manager v4.2).

As for files for me to try lets see what this CSI does on your system, then we can try something you have that works to see how it reacts on my system. (I can PM you with the details about issues obtaining material to watch)

Watched about 5 TV shows so far (all AVI) - mainly downloads of Brit TV from UKNova (I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! and Russell Howard's Good News Extra). So far no glitches or lipsynch issues encountered.

Now I've worked out how to Shuffle play music and stop player from playing next file my only major wish is improved parental controls.

Argh, I was hoping mezmo be the magical solution for me, but the cpu loading is an annoyance. But thanks for the advice about using their website to configure it before building the database or whatever, I'll be sure to read that and set everything to minimum if/when I try it.

off topic ramble follows
Everything's really a catch 22 and there doesn't seem to be an all-in-one media solution (besides a PC). LG players will play from windows xp shares, and those don't require any resources in my experience. My first bdplayer was the lg370, I read up on it here, thought it could do what I want, then got it home and it wouldn't play mkv... only to discover they disabled that feature in the US models only... so gave it to my mother for Christmas last year. I then arranged to buy the bd370 from futureshop in canada to a friends house during their boxing week sale... a month goes by and they say that it's discontinued and they ran out of stock and refund my money... by that time the next years models were almost out, so I decided risking buying something without reading much about it first and bought this bd-c5500 based on it's supposed features the first day it was available locally... from the start one basic thing didnt work that worked just fine on my old HD-DVD player - couldn't output component video and hdmi audio correctly at the same time (forced video to 480i after the startup screen).... called em up, guy tells me it should work, then says ummm no it doesnt but they'd fix it in firmware... which took more than 6 months... then all the other things... like couldn't play mkv with more than one audio track well.... finally fixed that a few months later.... couldn't enable subtitles on mkv with embedded subtitles - STILL not working... can't play large mkv correctly off dual layer discs. - STILL not working. I didn't even buy it for the network features, but thought of that as a bonus, when I started messing with those, that's a whole new nightmare, and now that I know about it, I feel like I shoulda just saved longer and bought an LG. Of course I'm sure LG has their own issues, cuz the grass is always greener on the other side. And I read Samsung's last couple firmwares broke netflix aspect ratio, but instead of allowing people to at least downgrade to the previously working until they fix it they're dragging their feet for a month now... to me that's worse than my issues cuz they actually released a firmware that broke something (as opposed to still having problems they've had from the beginning) so they should have been on top of it RIGHT AWAY... I personally don't use netflix streaming cuz don't have the bandwidth.

Al,

got the file and ran it both locally through a WD external USB HD, and streamed it wireless using G from my PC without issue. I also tried pausing/FF/RW trying to get it out of sync but it ran perfect each time. I ran the file through MediaInfo as you did along with a lot of my other TV shows and they are all basically encoded the same. I think we can safely rule out the unsupported container/codec issue if you're having a problem even with these TV shows.

If you're using the latest firmware, not sending your video/audio through a receiver of any type, I think this might be tougher than originally thought. If you're running the MKV directly from an external USB drive into the TV it should be the same interface (one would think) and eliminate any possible variance. The only other Samsung variable that I can think of then becomes the hardware inside the TV and what kind of chips/components are used on each individual model.

A quick Google search came up with at least (2) reports of people with your model complaining about audio sync issues..one using a receiver and one not. I really thought we would find an unsupported/old codec being used and that was the issue. Interesting.

If you have a really huge library and set Mezzmo to scan the whole allotment at once I can imagine it might be a resource hog upon first load. I had roughly 100 video files and I didn't even notice it. This is obviously CPU/RAM dependent. If you have 10,000 files and a slow CPU you might want to leave it run overnight.

My library is fairly small too about 2,500 files / 450Gb..... like I mention during initial library build PC slowed (15mins or so) but after not noticed any slow down.

Navy,so far I my findings have been accurate, but regarding the bolded statement in your reply...

The TV gets the video files through the ethernet connection, I then send the audio to my receiver via the optical audio out... I guess that I should try listening to the small speakers in the TV?

I sure hope that this is not the problem, otherwise even Mezzmo might not help as there is a decoding delay in the TV(?). I won't go to a playback model that requires I use the TV's speakers for anything!

If that turns out the issue you might want to get a Bluray player - can pick C5500 up real cheap at moment (I got my last one for $105 shipped). Most places will get you 30 days return too.

Al,

I would DEFINITELY just run a test without using the optical cable. JUST to see if this fixes it. If it DOES work without a sync issue at least we have somewhat isolated the issue. Does your receiver have an option to add a delay to the audio feed?(I hope I am using the right term as I have not had to mess with this)

I'm fairly certain most modern receivers have an option to do this. I am fairly certain that you will not have an issue if you use the TV speakers (as a test). Perhaps adding the delay in your receiver to a set amount may work for most(all???) sync issues with all files.

Let me know what you find when you have time to try it. good luck!

Its likely that receiver delay will accentuate issue - possibly need TV to delay the picture so the receiver has time to process the audio

Yeah I could be interchanging the terms. I know I've read people on here suffering this issue (could have been on different equipment, but same issue) and got it corrected. Everything I can recall tells me that there was a setting in the receiver which corrected this. If we can at least isolate the issue we can possibly point Al to a different thread which can better help him.

I think more chance if both audio and video were being passed thru receiver. As they go thru TV first a receiver delay won't help.

But I think its likely this is Al's issue.... be interested if confirmed. Never know Samsung might think about a video delay for those using external receivers
post #405 of 791
Hey, thanks guys for all of the assistance!, I will try the playback using the TV speakers.

I think that this may well be a problem with the TV decoding the audio and it ending up out of sync because it takes some amount of time to do this before it gets passed to the receiver. Probably already confirmed this because as I mentioned Media Center never exhibits this problem... Thanks for confirming that the files I am using aren't the issue.

As you mentioned a BD player might 'fix' this too.

I am not sure what I want to do, Media Center might be the way due to it's ability to handle all formats including the music etc. As an aside this would require a full rebuild of the PC I am typing on because it would be best suited to W7 media center because of the hardware it contains but that is another topic...

I will try the TV speakers and report back!

I also use the digital out to my audio receiver and I have the audio sync problem, but when I reencode the files I no longer have the audio sync problems.

I mostly use the usb inputs.

post #407 of 791
I tried the above experiment. I played a mkv with audio sync problems. I disconnected the digital out and used the TV's speakers.

It made no difference. I did notice that the audio preceded the video and is not consistant. Sometimes it is on the money. Sometimes about a half a second early and sometimes more than one second early.

Sorry if you already mentioned it, what TV model are you using AllShare on?
post #409 of 791
Well, I just finished the episode I referenced in the earlier post, listening through the TV speakers, if there was any sync issues they were none I could notice, or at the worst they were in perceptible, quite the contrast to what happened when the same file was played back with the audio going to the stereo.

I would hazard to guess that the time taken to re-encode the information into a bit stream for output through the optical connection is when the delay happens... Too tired to test the process again through the stereo, that would be a tomorrow thing!

Mike's results pose an interesting dilemma though?
post #410 of 791
Has anyone got their Samsung Blu-ray player to be recognized as a Digital Media Renderer? I have a Samsung PN50C6400 TV and HT-C6600 HT and only the TV is detected as a DMR. They both have AllShare so I was hoping I could push media directly to the HT from my media server (Twonky) via a DMC (iPhone). Thanks!

Here is something even more interesting. I was looking for some files to play I played some that I swore were bad. There weren't sync issues. I played a newly downloaded file and the audio sync was bad. That is when I disconnected the optical cable and used the TV's speakers. Could a previously played file have anything to do with it? These files were played and deleted and then replayed.

Here is what I found on the bad audio sync:

There were no issues at the beginning of the show. The audio preceded the video by a longer and longer time as the show played. If I went back to the beginning, the audio was out of sync (but it wasn't out of sync at first).

Weird stuff.

I'm currently testing a handful if iPhone DMC's to find which is most suitable, and none of them recognize my Samsung BD-C5900 as a renderer, only my TV. I was disappointed because I was hoping I could use the BD allshare over the TV allshare so I could turn the TV off when playing music. How stupid is it that they didn't include a screen saver, or the ability to black the screen out when playing music through the TV media player!!

With Al when he played back a file I verified worked on my TV, he was able to play it back without issue if he used the TV's speakers. It sounds like you're not even able to play back a newly downloaded file on the TV speakers without issue.

This goes way beyond AllShare/streaming programs and is going past anything I've personally troubleshooted.

Yeah, it is weird. I'm not too worried about it cuz I only have problems with downloaded files. If I make my own MKVs or reencode a downloaded file I have no problems and I use my stereo speakers for dolby digital.

I've had a Samsung LN46c630 since May and I absolutely love it.
Up until now, I've been playing all manner of files via an external usb drive,
however, I just recently bought an Acer Aspire Easystore WHS.

I'm looking into getting a WIS09ABGN Wireless stick (or a cheaper option with the same chipset) to now play those same files off my new server.
What I'm looking to find out is whether the TV will see all of my files on my server naturally via it's DLNA mediashare function, or if am I still required
to run the proprietary Samsung mediashare software directly off my server?

Any help greatly appreciated.

That's exactly what I'm looking for too. I tried the eco option on the TV to turn off the screen and leave just audio but it stopped playback from the DMC apps (tried a bunch too).

I finally got my BD-C5500 to see the PCSM. I hope this helps anyone else having a similar problem. The bloody configinfo.ini file had my player listed in the [Denied Dev List] so I moved it to the [Accepted Dev List]. Walla! It worked!

I couldn't understand why it couldn't see this software when it could see TVersity, PMS and Mezzmo. I thought it was my PC so I tried it on my laptop, didn't work there either. Tried different versions too...didn't help. Will continue testing.

My player still can't see Serviio running off my PC but it does see Serviio when I installed it on my laptop. I'll have to look into that later.

While I was trying to figure this all out, I got TVersity and PMS working but they're having issues playing MKVs. And my PMS keeps disconnecting and connecting.

Anyways, if the PCSM works well, I'll be happy.

I have only made 2 MKV's, of the one I played so far (special features disc of the last Star Trek) I experienced no sync issues...

Navy, I know you see now why this has been such a pain!

BTW, last night we watched the next episode in the series: CSI.S11E05.720p.HDTV.X264-DIMENSION... you know it audio syc issues.
