I am currently using 3x WDTV Live and 2x WDTV boxes in an art gallery, showing SD videos which are supposed to loop. Originally I used memory sticks, however the videos would randomly stop looking - either after minutes, or hours - it was unpredictable.
I then switched to using a DLNA NAS Western Digital drive, connected to a TP-Link Wireless N router. Whether the players are cables or running on Wifi (n), the same behavior is exhibited. The videos will play for a while, loop, then randomly stop and return to the home screen.
I have tried updating all units to the latest firmware, different formats and bit rates, cabled and wireless and still face this issue. It is now at the point that the show has to be closed until this issue is resolved. I am beginning to regret my decision for using these products.
Could anyone offer any suggestions as to why these videos, which do play back just fine in single mode, fail to loop properly?
