View Full Version : Which converter to use to easily render HD to philips compatible ?

02-11-2012, 12:58 PM

I have my new 3D-TV (7606) for some days now, and I'm trying to get the most out of it. Especially when streaming video from my PC to the TV. I chose for PS3 Media Server which I can recommend.

To my regret, I noticed that even my 4-core processor cannot re-encode HD mkv in realtime, so when looking at a HD or 3D video that needs to be rendered by PS3 Media Server (PMS), it pauses every 3 seconds.

So, there is only one solution left if I want to stick to the PC - dlna - TV setup, that is converting my videos into a compatible type, so that realtime rendering at pc-side is not needed anymore.

But, again, there are so many video conversion tools, and don't know what to choose. What can you recommend.

The ideal tool can automatically detect new video's in a certain directory, and convert it to a format that is compatible with the philips-TV. Does this exist?

That TV isin't actually DLNA certified for HD streaming. So you may run into issues even if the file is transcoded into another format.

Having said that, I've a 7606 too, and I have been able to play some HD .ts file via DLNA. I haven't tested it too much though as I don't have a lot of HD content to test with.

Have you tried Handbrake [http://handbrake.fr/] It may be able to do what you want.

Perhaps try Mezzmo media server instead of PS3 media server. Mezzmo has a pre-transcode feature and that's what I use when my computer cannot transcode some of my HD videos in real time. It fixes the stuttering/choppy playback problems you mention.
