Hi, I’ve just joined the forum, after buying a used WDTV Live media player a few days ago. It’s pretty old, I think, and out-dated, but all I wanted was to replace my even older WDTV media player, which recently stopped working. I just wanted to still be able to play media from a hard disk via USB. And this does work fine on the new one.
But the new one also has network and apps for Internet service, so I hoped as a bonus to be able to use these services, especially YouTube and BBC iPlayer. But they don’t work. The media player connects to my network fine, and all my computers access the Internet via the network. So I can’t see why the media player should have any problem accessing the Internet. In fact some radio streaming services do find some stations. But when I click YouTube I just get a blank screen, and BBC iPlayer just displays “This content seems not to be working”.
The online manual doesn’t mention any configuration needed. Is there something more I need to do to make these work?
