I upgraded to the Live Plus model, but pretty much ALL the MP4 and M4V files in my collection do not play smooth. The WD TV was shipped with the beta FW, not sure if I should ‘revert’ to the current version on the WD website.
The Knowledgebase states, “MPEG2/4, H.264, and WMV9 support up to 1920x1080p 24fps, 1920x1080i 30fps, 1280x720p 60fps resolution”.
I typically selected the High Profile preset to rip a DVD, but that doesn’t produce a smooth video on the new WD TV (unsure why they changed the FW).
Based on the KB comment, what HB preset or custom should I use to get the 1920 x1080p? For example, should the “Avg bitrate” be set to 1920, how about the 1080p? Also MediaInfo says the converted video is 23.976 frame rate, should I use exactly 24?
Also should the H.264 be used instead of FFMpeg?
I have HB 0.9.4 on Windows.
Thanks very much for the feedback!
