I have recently purchased a WD personal cloud 2 TB HD, and I own a Samsung Smart Bluray player. Until I purchased the WD Cloud I used to copy films on to a small flash drive / hard drive and play through the USB port on the front of the player (including MKV files), however now that I have the cloud I have copied all the films to this HD so that they are all accessible at any time but I can not play any of my MKV movies on my bluray player off of the cloud, I get an error message come up saying file not supported.
I have the HD connected to my TalkTalk router which is also connected to my Bluray player via ethernet.
The Samsung Bluray player must support MKV files because I can play them through the USB port so my question is, why can I not play the MKV files from my WD personal cloud? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
