Hi - please forgive the clumsy terms i’m not techy
Been using Handbrake for many years without issue to save video files in Mp4 / H264 storing them on a 6 year old WD My Book Live NAS and streaming via the built in Twinky server to a Samsung TV and a Sony TV.
This week had cause to replace ancient laptop with a new one and installed a new version of handbrake. Immediately noticed that whilst files looked fine with correct names when both TV’s were reading them they were coming out as “Stereo,MP4”.
The issue seems to be with Handbrake as files created via other video software seem fine. Also Handbrake creating MKV files seems fine. Tried altering and resetting metadata - no effect keep getting “stereo.mp4” as the file name on the TVs
I’ve tried going in and deleting the audio track in handbrake and that works - it creates a file on the NAS with the correct details been seen by the TVs - but obviously no sound
I’d suggest you get away from the DLNA server and connect via SMB in Infuse. You’ll get a lot more features in the Infuse library and may solve your problems with the naming the DLNA server is causing.
Yes, I saw this post but it quickly lost me, I know this makes me sound thick but I don’t know what you mean by connecting via SMB in Infuse?
It doesn’t mean I have to keep the laptop on 24/7 does it? Will both TVs be able to see the files - they’re both Smart TVs but the Samsung seems to have many more apps than the limited number on the Sony
