AVI file doesnt play properly (XviD/Mp3)


#1

Hi, I own a WD TV Live using firmware 1.02.21 and my WD TV is connected directly to the TV via HDMI. WD TV is also connected to my home network (wired).

I can’t play some of my avi files properly. When I click on play, the screen will hang (black screen) for a long time. If I leave it to load for about 20 seconds or so, the first few seconds will be played in fast forward mode (for around 10 seconds) and there is no audio. The video will then playback normally without sound.

Tried playing with the WDTV settings but to no avail. Also tried connecting via USB drive, problem still occurs.

Can anyone help me figure out what’s wrong with it? I know WD TV can’t handle GMC with warppoints but MediaInfo shows as follows:-
