Blueooth : Device sucessfully added but failed to connect

I'm running Wheezy, fully updated with installed Bluez and IOGear GBU521 bluetooth adapter which according to the wiki is a known working device. From the Wheezy GUI I can scan for devices, find them, pair, set as trusted but on trying to connect ( Jam2 bluetooth speaker and HTC One ) I get the mess...

Re: Simple setup for streaming to XBMC

I ditched PMS along time ago for Serviio, free, multi platform, on fly transcoding if needed, online streams and updated. It works very well. OpenELEC on RPi is in development and is still flaky so don't expect a perfect end user experience. While Serviio works very well all my devices, OpenELEC doe...

Re: Serviio for transcoding

Correction to the above, mpeg1 and 2 audio played, video is just greyed out. WMV didn't play either but mkv, avi, divx, all played fine (well depending on latest build of OpenELEC)

Re: Serviio for transcoding

To transcode to x264 would need quite a lot of CPU time compared to mpeg2 for the server running serviio. I've got a dual core atom and it can do 1080p on the fly mpeg2 but x264 would be way too much for it.

Re: Serviio for transcoding

No FFMPEG transcodes to MPEG and experimental x264 only.

I'll double check the mpeg playback, I thought it did it but using software (cpu) decoding not hardware decoding due to license issues.

Re: Serviio for transcoding

Serviio transcodes anything into MPEG2 that the end device can't handle e.g smart tv, media box as almost everything supports MPEG2. Is x264 finalised in FFMPEG or still experimental ? Serviio wasn't supporting transcoding to x264 though the latest beta might be, I've not looked. I've used OpenELEC ...
