I dragged and dropped a new .mpg file into my video directory on an external harddrive.
WDTVLive doesn’t display it on the screen.
Does it have to be a certain type/flavor of mpg file? (and how do I find out what kind of mpg I have?)
here is a schematic of my system:
WDTVLive - wired connection - Dlink DIR628 - Wired connection - Home PC (Vista32) - USB connection - External HD.
Any help appreciated.
The official website doesn’t explicitly state that “mpg” file extensions are valid…here is a cut-n-paste from the official website:
Media File Formats Supported on the original WD TV HD Media Player(WDAVx00) (Based on Firmware Version 1.03.01)
Video – WMV9, AVI (MPEG1/2/4, Xvid, AVC), H.264, MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1), MOV (MPEG4, H.264), MT2S, TP, TS, MOV/MP4 (MPEG4, h.264), DVR-MS, VOB (unprotected or unencrypted)
MPEG2/4, H.264, and WMV9 support up to 1920x1080p 24fps, 1920x1080i 30fps, 1280x720p 60fps resolution.
FLV file extensions are NOT supported. Neither are RMVB videos from Real Media. You will need to use conversion software to convert them to a supported format.
The WD TV HD Media Player only supports certain types of codecs based on the extension of your file. You can check the User Manual for a list of supported codecs for each file extension
