    First of all, I would send a great "BRAVO" to developpers, MP is simply amazing (except the following problem) !

    I use DBVSBridge for IPTV in VMC (with TVPack 2008) and it work perfectly.
    I few word, it's a dummy driver simulating a DVB-T card with ADSL-TV multicast streaming provided by my internet provider (Orange, in France).

    I tried to use this driver with MP TV Server, but as far I can understand, it seems that the "TS Reader" codec could'nt read H.264 stream and my TV streaming is H.264 (I can read it under any media player with FFDshow or CoreAVC).
    Is there a workaround for this, or is it a planned feature for MP ?

    Note: I tried the "Elecard IPTV solution", but I don't like replacing dll in MP installation and I just bought DVBSBridge...
    Note2: I'm french, so excuse my english speaking (and my president).

    Hi fdupont,

    Maybe you would like to read this :
    Un Peu De Vod Dans Ce Monde De Brutes - MP-FR .:: Le forum ::.

    It's client side, not server but, with VLC, you will be able to read H264 in Orange provider too.
    May be I'm wrong but, I suppose MP devs team (except Ambass ? :p) doesn't care with our president. :D

    Well, I don't ask for some third party players or add'on, I can handle that by myself.
    I just ask for mediaportal improvement.
    I think it's just a good idea for every users :).

    I'm happy to read that and follow this bug report :) .

    Here is my MediaPortal.log, and it seems tha video rendering failed because of an obscur memory error.
    I tried to change MPEG2 and H.264 codecs in MP Configuration, and everytime MPEG2 and H.264 are loaded even if ts file has only H.264 video (I check using MPC-HC to read it).
    I use FFDShow for MPEG2 and MPC Video Decoder for H.264 in attached log file, but I tried all possible codecs.


    Hope this helps.
