WD TV Live doesn't play MKV

Hello everybody,

 

My WD TV Live refuses to play one particular mkv file. I know the issue with MKVMERGE > Version 4.0 so I remuxed the file with 4.0 version but it didn't solve the problem.

Can anyone have a look to the MediaInfo log below and just let me know what's wrong with this video ?

Many thx.

Re: WD TV Live doesn't play MKV

I don't see any issues with it...  However, note that the MKVMerge 4.0 thing is no longer a concern.  The issue you're talking about is Header Stripping, and that was fixed a LONG time ago.

Re: WD TV Live doesn't play MKV

Playing the mkv on my PC is ok but when I try to play it on WD TV Live I get the message that says the player can read that file format. (???)

 

Regarding to the MkvMerge issue, I use to remux some mkv files with MKVMerge 4.0 because I still have some troubles playing them, although the player has the last updated firmware (1.66.15_V).

 

Thanks for replying anyway.

Re: WD TV Live doesn't play MKV

Latest official is 1.06.15, header compression got fixed in 1.03.43. MKVToolnix is on 5.2.0 an has compression default to off for quite some time now.
