The network works just fine when watching youtube videos and using other apps. But when trying to play an .mkv file over the network it just sits there doing nothing…sometimes it’ll start the beginning but just skips and freezes up…
I took the network cable out of my WD TV Live player and plugged it into my laptop and played .mkv files over the network just fine. (Yes i turned off wireless on my laptop to make sure it was playing through the cable.)
Than I put a .mkv file on my USB thumb drive and played it from there just fine on the WD Player.
I haven’t changed any video / audio settings at all.

PS: The WD TV Live player is plugged into my switch. I am attemtping to access files on my HTPC which is also plugged directly into the switch. I have my desktop plugged into the switch as well. When accessing files such as .mkvs to my desktop from my HTPC it works just fine.
