I use channels DVR and recently encountered some lag issues with ffwd and rew on recordings. After some discussions with other members and testing on my own I have come to the conclusion that the playback is much better with mp4 compression. I have come to the conclusion that Channels DVR doesn’t support mp4 files themselves. After some more discussing and testing I have found that if I use the MP4 High Quality “profile” setting within MCEbuddy then change the extension back to .mpg it will play beautifully.
I love the automation within MCEbuddy monitoring and then converting. Is it possible for MCE buddy to keep the original container??
I just tried using the custom renaming command with conversion tasks
The output file is named xxy.mpg.mp4 from a file xxy.mpg being converted
I would like a file with mp4 compression output as xxy.mpg
Can MCebuddy do this automatically for me? I would love to not have to log in and change filenames on my server running the DVR service
