-==== Best Practices: DLNA ==== 
  
-When it comes to encoding video with x264 for embedded devices that do playback (Blu-ray players, Roku, etc.), your **safest bet** is to use little to no advanced H.264 features. ​ The reason being is that you have to assume that the playback software could be dumb as rocks, and throwing some advanced stuff its way may only make playback poor. 
- 
-General testing with various encoding settings is a reasonable approach, but if you want to keep it safe, focus on changing the CRF or constant bitrate, or the preset, and that's it.  That'​ll give you good quality without taking risks for playback.
