I'm pleased to announce that new Air Video Server beta version is available.

EDIT: New OSX build that fixes problem with offline conversion.

You can download it for Mac OS X Leopard and Microsoft Windows.

Improvements in this release:
* Subtitle Support! SRT, SSA, SUB (MicroDVD), SMI (Experimental) formats are supported. Text subtitle track in MKV files are also supported.
* 64bit transcoding on 64bit Macs
* Windows Installer should configure proper rules for all firewall profiles
* More UPnP workarounds for broken routers
* Greatly improved unicode support on Windows

Changes since beta 8:
Fix for offline conversion getting stuck
Support for more AAC profiles

Changes since beta 7:
* Fixed FFMpeg problems on OS X 10.5 Leopard
* Fixed problems with Windows thumbnail generation (caused by missing msvcr90.dll)
* Subtitle size change on Windows shouldn't require server restart

Changes since beta 6:
* A/V sync fixes
* Experimental support for SMI subtitles
* Added option to adjust subtitle font size
* Stability improvements

Changes since beta 5:
* Option to disable embedded subtitles
* Compatibility with OS X 10.5 Leopard
* Fixed startup problems on OS X
* Important unicode fixes on Windows - Air Video can now be installed in folder that contains unicode characters, also conversion should work in unicode folders

Changes since beta 4:
* Overlapped subtitles should be supported properly.

Changes since beta 3:
* Fixed problem when Air Video Server froze on startup / shutdown.

Changes since beta 2:
* Fixed version number in Windows installer
* Fixed subtitle loading bugs
* Stability improvements

Please keep in mind that subtitle support is new. Feedback is very welcome. Also this build DOES NOT SUPPORT PowerPC Macs.
This is a beta version so treat it as such. Things might not work quite as expected

Update: If the accented characters don't show right you need to adjust subtitle encoding in Air Video Server properties.

I'm not sure what this is called, Polygamy or something, idk... But in the next release, could you disable the ability to open two processes at the same time?
and by the way, GREAT APP!

It's bit trickier than that. Some people deliberate use multiple Air Video Server instances, each one run with different user account. But we'll see what we can do about it.

When we used the Swedish subtitle it will not show ÅÄÖ. Instead it show the question mark.
Not a big problem but just so you know

Thanks for a great APP

I lied. It doesn't work perfectly.

I encoded two videos with it and about 3/4 of the way through both videos the audio restarts. It's the weirdest thing. Just suddenly the audio from the beginning of the file (in this case, the opening credits theme) starts playing and it continues on that way until the end of till the end of the file. I've never heard of something like that happening in an encoder before. That's a really weird bug.

Sorry about it, the mp4 muxer was broken in the build, can you download and test it again (Setup218beta9r2)?

ronnbybullen:

Try changing the Default encoding to Western ISO Latin 1 8859-1.
Working perfectly for me and I also use swedish subtitles.

Fix for offline conversion getting stuck


First off, Happy New Year and kudos for the great work in creating this video streaming software!

Anyways, I am running beta 9 on 64-bit Snow Leopard and the first conversion job I attempted is stuck after about a minute or so. The source video is an xvid-format AVI that's being accessed from a network share.

I've tried rebooting and restarting the Air Video server but same results. When I try to stop the conversion and clear the queue, the confirmation dialog pops up but seems to do no good after I click on "stop conversion and clear queue" to confirm.

Anything else I should try?

This is how you can clean the queue:

Quit Air Video Server
Delete the <your-home-folder>Library/Application Support/AirVideoServer/conversionStatus2 file
Start Air VIdeo Server

is this reproduceable? Can you try converting the file again after this to see if it still happens? If so, can you post the offline conversion log for the file? Thanks.

Rather than that, I've deleted both Air Video Server and AirVideoServer folder in Application Support, and Reinstall it again.

I'm running on a iMac 27 core i7 with Snow Leopard.

But it stucks again, but this time, when i press "Stop current conversion and clear queue", the estimated time increased from 2m39s to 7m39s, and not cleaned the queue.

Then, with this fresh install and the first stuck I've done what you've said, Quit Air Video Server, delete that file, and start Air Video Server again (meanwhile, the iPhone app is always on), and then it stucked at the same point, but this time it didn't increase the estimated time.

See log1.rtf (Attachment below)

All of this have been made with the best quality:

Ideal Video Width: 640 px
Ideal Video Height: 480 px
Quality: 100%

Then I tried to use the existing "High Quality" profile and, even though the conversion times are not the same, it stucks again, adding this to the end of the log attached:

Conversion: FFVC#stop(false)
Conversion: av_interleaved_write_frame(): Error while opening file
Conversion: Received signal 15: terminating.
Conversion: Bad file descriptor

Happy new year to you all!

Hi,

I've posted New Build for OS X that should fix the problem with offline conversion hanging. Can you give it a try?
