VLC and HDFX-4DT, transcoding?

Post by KentN »

Hi,
I found this guide to ajust the resolution, but it seems not to be working on a HDFX-4DT device.

Transcode Profiles:
• heavy: transcode to AVC with the same resolution, frame-rate, and interlacing as the
original stream. For example 1080i60 AVC 1080i60, 720p60 AVC 720p60. → →
• mobile: trancode to AVC progressive not exceeding 1280x720 30fps.
• internet720: transcode to low bitrate AVC progressive not exceeding 1280x720 30fps.
• internet480: transcode to low bitrate AVC progressive not exceeding 848x480 30fps for
16:9 content, not exceeding 640x480 30fps for 4:3 content.
• internet360: transcode to low bitrate AVC progressive not exceeding 640x360 30fps for
16:9 content, not exceeding 480x360 30fps for 4:3 content.
• internet240: transcode to low bitrate AVC progressive not exceeding 432x240 30fps for
16:9 content, not exceeding 320x240 30fps for 4:3 content.

Examples:
For the URL “http://192.168.0.100:5004/auto/v5.1
http://192.168.0.100:5004/auto/v5.1?duration=120
http://192.168.0.100:5004/auto/v5.1?transcode=mobile
http://192.168.0.100:5004/auto/v5.1?tra ... ration=120

Is there any way, to get a "thinner" http mpeg-ts stream? (Its about 12MB/s now)
I´m having issues with streaming via vpn to my home with my 4G mobile internet, due to lack of mobile network speed. (When connected to a wifi, no problems at all)


Regards
KentN

The transcode profiles option only applies to the discontinued HDHomeRun Extend model. They were mainly for people who were using low end devices which at the time didn't have enough processing power to handle software decoding of MPEG-2 HD video.

All the other models, including Flex, can only pass along the audio and video streams as is from your broadcast or cable signal.

Thanks for the explanation!
It seems that I instead, should look for a better ISP. :)
