Adding Transcoding to Coherence

written by Frank, on Dec 3, 2008 8:02:00 PM.

Yeah, you read right, transcoding - the holy grail when it comes to DLNA and UPnP A/V - is finally within Coherence's reach.

With current svn trunk we have a simple, yet powerful audio transcoder based on GStreamer, enabling our FSStore MediaServer to serve ogg, mp4 and flac media files to devices not able to playback these formats natively, like the Playstation 3.

The transcoded stream can be paused, but not seeked yet. That needs a bit of more work.

The complementary remuxer/transcoder for video is in the works too, hope we are able to finish that for the upcoming 0.6.0 release.
