Hi,
I got problems viewing some of blueray videos in tv-server. Codecs and setting should be exactly like in multiseat tv-client, but somehow multiseat client plays the blueray file, but tv-server standalone client don't :confused:
The file is in lan network storage, so both reads file from network, and both machines have 1Gb lan connection.

In working multiseat client when watched, the shift +1 say it uses: Default DirectSound Device, Enchanced Video Render, Microsoft -DTB-DVD Audio Decoder, Microsoft DTV-DVD Video Decoder, LAV Splitter

I have renamed quicktime, itunes, handbrake, haali, ffmpeg, ffdshow, ac3filter folders from programfiles on both computer's to test that none of those codecs don't mess it. But still only client computer can show the video.

Only differences I can more imagine, is another has ATI, and another has NVIDIA graphic card.

What I have done allready,

1. Run all windows updates
2. Copy all registery setting from ffdshow/lavsplitter from working computer to tv-server.
3. Copy the whole programfiles\team mediaportal\mediaportal client\ folder from working computer.
4. Copy the whole setting folder from c:\programdata\team mediaportal\mediaportal client\ folder from working computer.
5. Run filemonitor and trying to figure what files and registery settings it try to read, with no success.
6. Checked that both have exact setting is codecs section.
7. Installed quicktime, didin't still work so removed.
8. Updated Lavfilters 0.23 to 0.51.3, didin't still work, so installed 0.23 back.
9. Updated ffdshow rev3749 to rev4422, didin't still work, so installed rev3749 back.
10. Drinked few gallons of coffee, while figurine whats wrong.

Hope someone founds the answer for me. Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm weird, the only thing I can see in logs is fails with "critical error"

    Could do with you repeating the problem using the debug-mode available from the windows "Start" menu mediaportal folder, then uploading the complete set of logs created.

    Heres the debug log zip.

    I found that it plays the episode 3 fine, and I compared episode 1 and 3 with mediainfo.
    Don't know why the only client machine plays both fine, but the mediaportal with server plays only that one below, but not the one in previous post.

    What driver version shows up in nvidia control panel, if later than 276.xx you may find that could be the culprit, even though logs showing ffdshow video filter not found.

    Also reinstall any codecs after changing any video or audio driver as this may affect associations influenced by the driver within the registry.

    If you think it could be any of the above you have done, then suggest you run filmerit (link in signature) when you have removed any codec installations (even FFDShow), just to make sure things are cleanly re-installed.

    ps. we whole heartedly recommend the LAV filters available from the desktop MP Extentions installer for Windows 7 rather than ffdshow, unless you really need it post-processing abilities.

    Ok I could solve my problem by myself. The logs said that the delimiter of that song is not in text form. Although it was already in text form and I deleted the music database, the title information was still not available. I ripped the song again and now it works.
