mkv transcoding on Panasonic Viera

    I use the following config.xml to transcode mkv:

    if I launch the mencoder command alone transcoding works fine.

    When I try to play the movie on my tv I have a message like unsupported format.

    If I connect to Mediatomb via browser and manually  edit Mimetype from video/matroska to video/avi the video works fine on the tv.

    So I change in the config.cml

    <map from="mkv" to="video/matroska"/>


     <map from="mkv" to="video/avi"/>

    The video is played and I think is transcoded because I experience a audio delay.

    The think is that I really do not understand the logic behind all this. Any idea?

    Apparently the file is not  transcoded because if I disable transcoding the mkv is visible on the TV but with audio delay.

    Is there a way I can force transcoding on mkv?

    Even when transcoding is enabled the in the logs there is no trace of transcoding.

    Any idea?
