I am preparing video to be streamed (DLNA) from my NAS to an older Sony Bravia. I have successfully created playable m2t files (1080i) with VideoStudio (AVC, high@L4, Cabac, h264, vbr max 20 Mbps, 25 fps, interlaced). Interlaced is important because it seems the TV cannot handle 1080p from NAS or USB. I have some old family video in prores/mov that VideoStudio does not accept as input, so I am trying to convert that to something acceptable to the TV using FFmpeg.
I haven't found a way to create m2t files with FFmpeg.
The TV is supposedly capable of handling MP4, but regardless of the settings tried — and I have tried dozens that all plays well on VLC (including BD compatible, PSP profiles and other) the TV just says 'not playable'
Anyone has ideas for any of the two routes?
Searching the internet I have learned that the Sony Bravia is known for being very picky, but I am sure someone has found the key...? (other than those at pavtube, who claims to have a commercial tool, that does the trick)
