    Recording without transcoding

    Hi,

    I'm trying to copy the video and audio streams as it comes from the iptv service. Some channels are mpeg2, some are mpeg4 h264, some channels has several audio streams, spanish and english tracks in mp2.

    I know there's a config.xml file we can customize. Where and what should I change in the config file to copy the streams as there are without any transcoding whatsoever?

    Has anybody try to do this? (I assume the ffmpeg code command)

    Otherwise it records a very compressed h264 with just the first audio track again converted to aac low quality.

    I know I could use ffmpeg command line in windows to record the stream manually, but I like the nextpvr interface, channel guide and the padding time to add to my recordings. Thanks

    Did you install the recent patch that is needed when NextPVR was unnecessarily transcoding files? Normally NextPVR transcodes because the files are not in supported format, often segmented files with can't just be recorded as one file.

    This is that updated NShared.dll you'd need:

    The version I have is NextPVR 4.2.3. Other than that I don't have any patch installed

    Thank you so much for your reply

    Hopefully - it certainly fixed the issue with it requiring transcoding for some other IPTV users.

    Just replaced the dll file in c:\Users\Public\NPVR\web\ Bin for the one from this forum, but keeps re-encoding the SD mpeg2 channel into mpeg4 low bitrate.

    Any other suggestions? Thanks so much

    You need to update patches in the Program Files folder
