Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

PB,
If you have a minute, what do you see in the Twonky log when a file is transcoded? This has to be something simple because background transcoding does work when enabled, but Twonky doesn't appear to transcode on the fly when a wma file is selected.

Thanks,
Scott

Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

Well, I am at a complete loss. With background transcoding enabled, Twonky does successfully transcode the wma files to mp3 using the parameters in ffmpeg-wma-mp3.desc. However, whenever a wma file is selected on the TV, Twonky appears to send the wma file rather than transcoding it or using the pre...

Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

First, thank you for your assistance! Yes, I did set the profile to Samsung Phone, saved the settings, changed it back to Samsung TV, then saved the settings. After making several changes though, now I don't see the transcoding taking place. In a couple days I will go back to the beginning, take bet...

Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

Hmmm. I was very encouraged to see your post and felt that my mistake was using mp3 rather than mpeg in the ffmpeg-wma-mp3.desc file. However, I still can't get it working, but am close. I followed your directions exactly and am using Twonky 6 on a Win2K3 Windows Home Server. I copied your ffmpeg-wm...

Re: Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

PB, Thank you for such a thorough and thoughtful response. I did previously edit the ffmpeg.location file and created the ffmpeg-wma-mp3.desc file. From a command prompt I ran ffmpeg with the parameters and options used in ffmpeg-wma-mp3.desc to confirm that ffmpeg would in fact do the conversion, w...

Transcoding WMA to MP3 for Samsung TV

I installed ffmpeg in hopes of being able to transcode wma music files into MP3 to play on my Samsung TV. However, after installing ffmpeg, only the video transcoding options in Twonky Server (6.0.30) became un-greyed. What must be done to enable the Transcode music to MP3 option?

Thank you,
Scott
