…and it seems complicated. I have read and searched the forums this afternoon for a mention of this issue and have seen nothing about it.
1) Does anyone else have issues playing 10bit (bit depth I assume) video and know any fixes or work arounds
Some of the anime community is pushing for a MP-HC - CCCP based HD media-server home theater use, but those of us who bought the WDTV may want to use that instead of buying AND building something else. I have read their forums and their fixes and long and deep into the world of video.
They say it has better color depth and slightly smaller files sizes, but otherwise I don’t understand the near universal push towards 10bit in the anime world. I have seen other files posted elsewhere now beginning to use 10bit for TV and movies too… So any word on a fix from WD?
1.1) Anyone having issues playing MP4, which also becoming more prevailing on the webz? Any fixes or recommendations?
**now I realize the big, long and difficult answering is re-encoding, and that brings on a whole other level problems, questions and a nice learning curve. VLC somewhat recently got their software fixed to play 10bit, but ultimately I bought the WDTV over the rest in deep hopes of using it play my videos on the big screen and so far its been pretty good until the last 8-9 months when 10bit began taking its hold in the anime world, and many of the groups who disseminate it are saying “deal with it”
