Transcoding help please

Post by steamhead » Mon Aug 17, 2009 10:42 am

Hi there,
The bulk of my media content is in h.264 format in mp4 files, which is great for my PS3. However I've just dusted off my old Bufallo LinkTheatre from the loft to see if I can add a media player in the bedroom, but it doesn't support h.264.

So I have a few questions -
1. Is it possible for Twonky to transcode h.264 on the fly to something the Bufallo supports, e.g. mpeg2 or DivX
2. Is it possible to target this so it leaves the h.264 files alone when streaming to the PS3.
3. Do I need to buy/install any other software on my server

and the big one...

4. If it is possible, how do I do it.

Thanks in advance
