Post subject:  Profile for Roku 3 - Help with transcoding please

My original thread disappeared for some reason.
I tried the "older" hls based approach to getting non-mp4 videos to transcode for the Roku 3, but it didn't work.

Looking for other suggestions to get this working with the Roku.

Ideas?

This is for the Roku 3, which is a DLNA device unlike earlier models.
Video — MKV (H.264), MP4 (H.264), MOV (H.264), WMV (VC-1, firmware 3.1 only).

Native video formats work fine - it is just the transcoding that doesn't seem to.

Thanks.

Any ideas? Any logs I can capture? Running out of trial time...

Ok, found a solution here:
(But changed the settings for 2 channel AAC to 0 channel AC3 for surround sound to work)

I just couldn't figure out this step: (for temp file cleanup)

Settings - Processing - Add

Name: Clean HLS directory
Mark "Button on the main form"

Where is this found?

Update: found it. seems to work well.

I also updated the clean script, since it had a hard coded path:
var
fso: Variant;
sDirectory: string;
begin
fso := CreateOleObject('Scripting.FileSystemObject');
sDirectory := IncludeTrailingBackslash(ProgramPath) + 'Presentation\HLS\*';
fso.DeleteFolder(sDirectory);
end.

Is there a way to clean up the files after playing back the transcoded video?
I tried adding the "clean HLS directory" script to the post-playback event, but it messes up the playback (probably because it is being invoked at the end of each little chunk?).
