only vob files work in videos

Reported by: mythtv@… Owned by: greg
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: upnp Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Stuart Auchterlonie Ticket locked: no


I'm attempting to use myth's upnp server with an Archos 605 client. I am able to browse through the videos, but only vob files show thumbnails, and when I try to play the videos, only vob files work.

I turned on -v upnp, but I don't get any logs for the other videos that don't work. Only the vob file requests are logged.

I haven't yet bought the MPEG2 upgrade for the archos, so I can't say for sure if those work, but they at least work well enough for the device to recognize the codec and try to sell me the plugin. :)

If this is a known issue, sorry for the noise. I didn't see any preexisting tickets on it, but I realize upnp is under heavy dev.

sorry, meant to open this under upnp - don't have permissions to move it now. Sorry for the trouble.

I tried -v upnp,network and it didn't get me more information, so I did a packet capture.

Turns out the reason there's no message on the files that don't work, is there is no request happening. I think the reason for that is that the MIME type for the files that don't work is being reported as 'text/plain' - so the client assumes it can't play them and reports an error without trying to retrieve them.

In addition to vob files, .wmv files appear to work. AVIs, .ts, .mp4, .mkv, .iso, .img all fail (although I'm not sure I should expect .iso and .img to work anyway.)

I have one of these devices so I can test whatever we come up with.

mythtv@… Just to be sure, what version of myth were you running that against?

MIME types were added pre 0.21 release for iso, mkv and vob etc

comment:7 Changed 13 years ago by mythtv@…

I was running svn trunk, updated the weekend 0.21 released. Sorry, I don't know what SVN revision that was now.

mythfrontend --version or mythbackend --version includes that information and should probably be included in all bug tickets.

mythtv@… Can you try this using the latest 0.21-fixes as well?

Unfortunately my media player is out traveling with my wife for the next 6 weeks, so I won't be able to try anything till it gets back.
