HLS Video Option

Postby daneren2005 » Thu Jul 18, 2013 3:57 pm

I just thought I'd mention that in the latest update I added HLS as a option under Video Player's in the settings. I was never able to get the seeking to work. It just sits there indefinitely, even though on the server it appears to skip ahead to the correct place correctly (this was using MX Player). Just watching a video appears to work though, and doesn't require you to mess with transcoding settings since it should work with the defaults that are already there. Anyone have any better luck getting the seeking to work correctly? Please post what you did here so others can try it out.

I am still rocking the old transcoding on the fly. I can't even get HLS to work :/.

What does it do? There is a line for HLS transcoding in the server settings youight have to play with.

I get an error saying "Can't play this video"

I am using the default HLS setting

for my convertion from * to mpegts i am using the following

Code: Select all
name: mpeg stream
Convert From: avi mpg mpeg mp4 m4v mkv mov wmv ogv divx m2ts
Convert to: mpegts
Step 1: ffmpeg -i %s -ss %o -t %d -s %wx%h -r 30000/1001 -vb %bk -vcodec libx264 -preset ultrafast -acodec aac -ac 2 -ar 48000 -f mpegts -strict experimental -

when I try to play the HLS stream on my computer I get a message stating "Server does not support seeking"

Perhaps the issue is subsonic related, not Dsub related.

I can PM you a link to test.

Sure I can at least see if it device specific issue
