ACCEPTED: On-the-Fly Transcoding
#56
(2015-09-22, 11:56)david.kennedy Wrote: My main reason for looking at this thread is that my Synology NAS (DS215J) isn't powerful enough to do transcoding and the DLNA protocol is limiting what I can send to my new OLED TV due to lack of codec support.

Am I right in thinking if I buy the Nvidia Shield TV, install Kodi, that potentially with this new feature Kodi could read from my NAS (over SMB/NTFS) and transcode files if it needed to for the TV? I assume the shield is capable enough.

Thanks

Theoretically yes? The benefit of the idea of a Kodi distributed network is that any Kodi box can do the decoding work. With that said, I wouldn't hold my breath on this being merged in the very near future. Lots to do, particularly on the Kodi end, before this can be accepted as a PR, as I understand it.
