I generated a video with 2 channel AAC 24KHz audio and played it back after pyTivo push and everyone sounded like Mickey Mouse (and the timeline was not right either).
Same problem with 2 channel AC3 24KHz audio.

general question on streambaby... newb...
does streambaby prevent the 'transfer' of the video from the pc to the tivo?
if yes, does pytivo interfere with streambaby as an app? thanks!

I sometimes have trouble even with 44100 Hz AAC, but it seems to be corrected after playing something with 48000 Hz AAC.

jimbob111, I don't quite understand your question; but no, they don't interfere. If you look back over the last few posts, you'll see where Streambaby has even added a feature that cooperates with pyTivo to do a transfer.

But if you're talking about transferring with pyTivo in the background while you stream in the foreground, then yes, they would "interfere", in the sense that each would be trying to take up a large share of the TiVo's very limited incoming bandwidth.

No. you can use streambaby and pytivo side-by-side happily. HOWEVER if you have a transfer going AND are streaming a video, both things are going to suck up the limited bandwidth of the tivo. If your streambaby stream is high bandwidth, you will probably end up seeing a lot of pausing in your video.

Same problem with 2 channel AC3 24KHz audio.
The one I transfered has good audio on the 2 channels that did play. For some reason the other channels did not play, so I did not have any speach. But the audio that was there was in synch and sounded fine. The timeline was off quite a bit, but I do not really care about that.

I will recode the AAC audio to 44K and try transfering that.

Also I tried a true HD MP4, 10 Gig file. It just timed out playing. Below is the log from that one.

I put 44khz in my previous post, but it's actually 44.1khz (44100) and 48khz (48000).

Hmm... I did notice while doing some testing that it sometimes takes a long time during the re-interleave phase of large files. I never had anything time out, but I also never looked at exactly what spot in the code the delay was, and whether an extra-long pause would cause a problem. I'll have to take a look.

Assuming it is a well formatted MP4 you can try it with interleaving disabled by setting the following in streambaby.ini:
mp4module.interleave=false

EDIT: Also just noticed that it was 6 minutes before it got disconnected. Can't explain why it would be that long (large MP4's can take 20 seconds or so on my laptop, but never seen anything close to 6 minutes)

This getting_started wiki page has illustrated step by step to get going with streambaby. If you still find there is not information there let me know and I can clarify further.

And the document at http://pytivo.armooo.net/wiki/WindowsInstall describes how to install pytivo on windows.

Hanbrake H.264 recipe that works well for Tivo playback?

As mentioned recently starting at this post I have yet to find a Handbrake H.264 encoding profile that generates good, smooth playback on my S3 Tivos. So just curious if anyone as found a Handbrake recipe that works well? So far I have found ffmpeg can do it (and I'm sure mencoder as well using translated version of same ffmpeg recipe).
If you have found one please post it here. You can go to Query Editor tab and click on Generate Query button to have it spit out the recipe.

I think I have uncovered a bug in the FFMPEG version we are using. Since kearygriffin mentioned that the MP4 I was using had only 24000Hz audio, I looked into it. I did not think I encoded it to that level. I demuxed them, reencoded the audio which forced 48000Hz. Remuxed it using MP4Box. FFMPEG would still report 24000Hz.

After reencoding the audio several different ways I came across the fact that if I encoded it using HE-AAC, FFMpeg would report the 48000 stream as 24000. When I switched to using AAC-LC then FFMPEG would report the audio correctly.

And now the MP4s which would not stream (And I could not transocde) can stream!

So an issue with HE-AAC audio and FFMPEG.

I only have TivoHD, so I haven't tested any of my profiles on a S3. Handbrake defaults to using VFR when using detelecine, and I have been a bit concerned about this but haven't seen any playback issues on my HDs. Here is the profile that I am using now.

Code:
 -i "source" -t 2 -c 1-17 -o "output.mp4" -f mp4 -O  --decomb  -p  --detelecine -e x264 -b 2000 -2  -T  -a 1 -E faac -B 160 -R 0 -6 dpl2 -D 1 -s 1 --markers="C:\Users\Jason\AppData\Local\Temp\VIDEO_TS-2-chapters.csv" -x ref=3:mixed-refs=1:bframes=3:weightb=1:direct=auto:b-pyramid=1:me=umh:subq=9:analyse=all:8x8dct=1:no-fast-pskip=1:psy-rd=1,0.2:keyint=24:min-keyint=2:no-dct-decimate=1 -v

Tried it out from both an SD & HD mpeg2 source and it worked very nicely on my S3s, thanks! I tried it with both AAC (-E faac) and AC3 (-E ac3) audio and both worked well, and of course for Tivo playback AC3 is better. I updated the video_compatiblity wiki to include your handbrake recipe (with AC3 audio).

Just to add for folks that are more interested in speed of conversion than target size, you can use a target quality profile of ~61% to achieve around 2000 kbps encodes. I had some DVD material that must have had a lot of noise in the video and the 61% quality encode was using a bitrate of ~3800 kbps which was really overkill for SD material. Because of that, I switched to 2-pass. Currently, it takes me about 50 mins to re-encode a 42-43 min episode whereas the single pass constant quality encode was 35 mins.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I followed the article on how to turn your Tivo into a DVR jukebox. Basically ripped a DVD with dvd decrypter so that I could get one .VOB file with the audio encoded. I renamed to .MPG

I use streambaby to point to that folder.

TivoHD sees the video and I can play it.

However, three issues:

1) It shows as 0:00 for the time
2) I cannot fast forward, as it pauses and flashes up a black screen that says: 0:00:00
3) If I pause the playback on the Tivo for longer than say, 30 seconds, it generates an error on the Tivo and I have to start watching all over again (because I cannot fast forward).

Streambaby shows this for items #1 and #2:

Initializing...

m_jonis, sounds like you need to run your ripped mpeg files through VideoRedo QuickStream fix or some other mpeg2 GOP fixer.
As it is now if even if you transfer the video to your Tivo using Tivo Desktop or pyTivo you will likely see the same playback issues.

Thanks.

However, playback is fine (no audio problems no sync issues, etc.)

I was able to fast forward the very first time I tried it, but not since.

However, I'll try the videoredo and see what happens.

You can also try mpegstreamclip which is free. Just follow the directions on how to install it.

I tried mpegstreamclip but it didn't fix it, so I tried the trial of videoredo and that fixed it. So I'll probably be buying the video redo.

Thanks for all the help and the free app is pretty cool.

I've updated the re-interleaving code to make it exponentially faster. (The video I use for large file testing went from 44 seconds to .5 seconds...)

If you feel like trying it again with the new version with the interleaving turned back on (commenting out or removing the interleave line from streambaby.ini) I'd be interested in hearing your results. (I'm curious to see if it was a speed-issue, which this should fix, or if there is some kind of bug causing the video to get stuck in some kind infinite loop)

Here is the link to the new version:

Interface graphics

Hi Keary,

I use streambaby via pytivox.

I wanted to change the look of the graphics when using streambaby.

I changed the background and icons etc. Is it possible to do this, have different folder icons for different folders. ie i have folders like action, comedy, drama.
I would love to have a folder icon for each folder that contains a type of genre. i have attached some examples.

Also when entering a folder say for a tv series could we have a different background for that folder.

Another request can we make the default folder size bigger than 32x32?

I really love streambaby and I am changing the look to make it more like individual app that tivo runs, hope I am explaining that well enough.

There are some amazing folders and background images and icons made for the tvix series of media players i would love to use those.

cheers

phil

Keary, FYI with r198 some of my mp4 videos no longer play when interleaving is left off (I get the red 0xffff error screen). I had to turn off interleaving for them to play with streambaby:
mp4module.interleave=false
(I can make a short sample available if you need one)

That resolved the full res 1080p 9000k video I had. So it just must have been taking too long to interleave, and did not have any other problems.

Did you have a chance to look at the HE-AAC verses AAC-LE issue I reported with the windows FFMpeg build? I am curious if it is an issue on Unix as well, or strictly a Windows issue?

Thanks,

Rick

ffmpeg probably would need to be compiled with libaacplus support in order to support decoding of HE-AAC. I haven't yet seen an ffmpeg build with libaacplus.

Sometimes when I "back-in" to streambaby from live tv, meaning I press left on the remote from live TV when I was previously using streambaby...streambaby looks a lot different. It's got a background with movie reels and everything looks a lot cooler. Just something I've noticed. But is there a way to make streambaby look like that all the time? Nothing runs into one another, metadata etc...

It looks like that all the time here. I think something is messed up with your installation or your streambaby.ini .

OR

what is the resolution you have specified on your tivo? It only uses the dark blue reel background when it detects your tivo is using an HD output... so it might be related to your resolution settings (although I'm more inclined to think the streambaby.ini file or just your actual code is messed up).

Did you edit the streambaby.ini and set the path to your video share? Also you need to remove the # at the beginning of the line.

See the wiki for more info on this file.

Rick

Hey Yoav, could you post you streambaby.ini file so I could see where mine is messed up? It's weird because I don't think I have that much listed on my ini file.
