I have tested a couple of sony bravia 2013-2014 dlna profiles, but these profiles did not work well on my bravia 2013 tv: KDL32W650A
I tested it on plex dlna server Version 0.9.9.14 (last windows XP version)
I don't want to take all the credits for this profile myself because i made it from other profiles on this forum, plex default bravia profile and added some modifications:
1- Do not support photo transcoding (only jpeg is supported), because of a plex bug on this version, if transcoding is used, photos may be seen on the tv as a small thumbnail cache or blurry picture. Unfortunatly, this modification allows to see jpeg pictures in original size, but does not allow to see photo icons like in thumbnail view on the tv.
2- Video transcoding is set by default to mpeg2 video codec in this profile cause i am using a quite slow dlna server, but by changing some comment in the file, it can easily be changed for h264 (with better video quality) if your dlna server is fast enough.
3- I have made some tweaks to limit not playing divx video codecs which are not directly supported by tv (without transcoding), but xvid avi are.
4- A few other customization of my own to avoid transcoding as much as possible when it could.
5- I did not test this profile on any other tv than a KDL32W650A (2013 bravia), but i guess it will work on many more bravia with few modifications.
6- I have made limited mkv video files because i don't own them.
7- Always prefer for video file aac audio when possible for the codec (not ac3 1st): aac audio is always played correctly on the tv to almost any sample rate/bitrate. This audio codec is used for video transcoding to make sure the video can be played as much as possible. If ac3 is used instead in transcoding, some video file will play with no audio.
