Force transcode of MP4 to Hisense TV
Apologies if the answer to this is somewhere on the forum already. I have a Hisense TV which can't play MP4 files so I tried to set up a DLNA profile that will transcode everything to a format it understands. I tried setting a single transcode target with no direct play profiles and I added a container profile remap but the TV continues to say the MP4 files format is not recognised. It plays AVIs fine. Can anyone give any tips? Here's my profile so far.
