Thank you but I am still not having any luck. This requires a lot of assembly and not very good documenation. From what I can gather I need all of the following:
1) an app that can do the transcoding. I have tried mplayer/mencoder, ffmpeg and vlc with no luck on any of them. Trying to get just ffmpeg working.
2) editing the .location file as instructed - that at least is straightforward
3) trying to figure out the .desc files - here's ffmpeg-wma-lpcm.desc
# transcode video (wma to lpcm)
#(c) 2008 by PacketVideo
exec: ffmpeg -i $infile -f s16be $outfile
4) modifying the clients.db databse because it does not show my player as supporting audio. I added the MT: line which I think is supposed to force transcoding? and MP3, LCMD at the end of the TR: line.
NA:Sony Blu-Ray Player
HH:Blu-ray Disc Player
So what am I still not getting? Do I have to tell it to use ffmpeg?
