I purchased a WD TV Live Gen 3 box yesterday to enable me to stream video from my mobile and tablet along with a WD USB external drive. After setting it up and allowing it to upgrade to the latest firmware I was excitied and plugged in my drive which as a few hundred files now. Unfortunately I have quite a lot of flv files and when I tried to play them I got mixed results.
A few played OK with a minor delay to the audio but nothing major. I then tried another one and it was a mess! The audio started out OK for the first few seconds, then it started getting ahead of the video! and the gap increased the longer the video was playing. I tried using the audio adjuster in the options but every few seconds I had to adjust it again and again and in the end it was ridiculous.
So I googled around, downloaded mediainfo and both the files that work and don’t are AVC/AAC. The audio stream is exactly the same. Sadly if I can’t resolve this it either means re-encoding hundreds of files or taking the WD TV Live box back!
