2012-05-13 14:08:34 Launchpad Janitor arista (Ubuntu): status New Confirmed
2012-08-10 14:34:06 B K description Hi everybody, I have used Arista Transcoder for the last year to convert the video of my favourites tvshows to my iPod Touch device, but the last week I'm having problems with the transformation, the converted videos can't be played by the ipod touch and are not recognized by the iTunes application as "valid videos for the iPod". This occurs to all mi iPod devices (2nd generation and 3rd generation) I can transfer via SSH but can't be played by the video application. (VLC open's it without a problem) I am using (during this week) Ubuntu 12.04 precise (development branch) and the version of arista is 0.9.7. I'm trying the default preset for iPod Touch as the new version hosted in the arista homepage (version 1.2 of Daniel) but the result is the same. I'm comparing the new converted videos versus the old ones (by its metadata and there is some diferentes that can help us to solve this problem). ---- ACTUAL VERSION --- General Complete name : Castle.2009.S04E15.HDTV.XviD-LOL.mp4 Format : MPEG-4 Format profile : Base Media / Version 2 Codec ID : mp42 File size : 172 MiB Duration : 41mn 58s Overall bit rate mode : Variable Overall bit rate : 573 Kbps Encoded date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 Tagged date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 Writing application : transcode-1.0.6 Video ID : 2 Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format profile : High@L3.0 Format settings, CABAC : Yes Format settings, ReFrames : 4 frames Codec ID : avc1 Codec ID/Info : Advanced Video Coding Duration : 41mn 58s Bit rate : 503 Kbps Width : 624 pixels Height : 352 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate mode : Variable Frame rate : 23.976 fps Minimum frame rate : 23.976 fps Maximum frame rate : 24.169 fps Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.095 Stream size : 151 MiB (88%) Writing library : x264 core 120 r2151 a3f4407 Encoding settings : cabac=1 / ref=2 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x3:0x113 / me=umh / subme=6 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 / 8x8dct=1 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=3 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=3 / b_pyramid=2 / b_adapt=1 / b_bias=0 / direct=1 / weightb=1 / open_gop=0 / weightp=2 / keyint=47 / keyint_min=4 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=crf / mbtree=1 / crf=21.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=0 / qpmax=69 / qpstep=4 / vbv_maxrate=2048 / vbv_bufsize=1228 / crf_max=0.0 / nal_hrd=none / ip_ratio=1.40 / aq=1:1.00 Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 Tagged date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 Audio ID : 1 Format : AAC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Format profile : LC Codec ID : 40 Duration : 41mn 58s Duration_LastFrame : -3ms Bit rate mode : Variable Bit rate : 64.1 Kbps Nominal bit rate : 77.0 Kbps Maximum bit rate : 320 Kbps Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Compression mode : Lossy Stream size : 19.2 MiB (11%) Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 Tagged date : UTC 2012-03-10 12:07:11 --- PREVIOUS VERSION -- General Complete name : Glee.S03E04.HDTV.XviD-LOL.[VTV].mp4 Format : MPEG-4 Format profile : QuickTime Codec ID : qt File size : 266 MiB Duration : 42mn 43s Overall bit rate : 871 Kbps Encoded date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Tagged date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Writing application : x264 Video ID : 2 Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format profile : Baseline@L3.0 Format settings, CABAC : No Format settings, ReFrames : 2 frames Codec ID : avc1 Codec ID/Info : Advanced Video Coding Duration : 42mn 43s Bit rate : 738 Kbps Width : 624 pixels Height : 352 pixels Display aspect ratio : 16:9 Frame rate mode : Variable Frame rate : 23.976 fps Minimum frame rate : 23.762 fps Maximum frame rate : 28.916 fps Color space : YUV Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0 Bit depth : 8 bits Scan type : Progressive Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.140 Stream size : 226 MiB (85%) Writing library : x264 core 116 r2042 178455c Encoding settings : cabac=0 / ref=2 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x1:0x111 / me=umh / subme=6 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 / 8x8dct=0 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=3 / sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 / decimate=1 / interlaced=0 / bluray_compat=0 / constrained_intra=0 / bframes=0 / weightp=0 / keyint=47 / keyint_min=4 / scenecut=40 / intra_refresh=0 / rc_lookahead=40 / rc=crf / mbtree=1 / crf=21.0 / qcomp=0.60 / qpmin=0 / qpmax=69 / qpstep=4 / vbv_maxrate=2048 / vbv_bufsize=1228 / crf_max=0.0 / nal_hrd=none / ip_ratio=1.40 / aq=1:1.00 Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Tagged date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Audio ID : 1 Format : AAC Format/Info : Advanced Audio Codec Format profile : LC Codec ID : 40 Duration : 42mn 43s Duration_LastFrame : -8ms Bit rate mode : Constant Bit rate : 128 Kbps Nominal bit rate : 32.0 Kbps Channel(s) : 2 channels Channel positions : Front: L R Sampling rate : 48.0 KHz Compression mode : Lossy Stream size : 39.1 MiB (15%) Language : English Encoded date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Tagged date : UTC 2012-01-01 13:36:41 Thank you very much for your help!
