I am streaming from MyCloud to PS3, and I have two problems. I can’t see or play .mkv files, and I can’t turn on subtitles.
As far as the .mkv files, I can’t put PS3 Media Server on the MyCloud nor stream from MyCloud->laptop->PS3. I tried streaming to my laptop and using PMS to play on PS3, but even my avi files did not appear.
As far the subtitles, I have way too many files to go through consolidation of .avi and .srt files. Even if I limit myself to watching on my laptop only, the subtitles don’t automatically load. I have to begin the movie, turn on the subtitles and “open file”, wait for the screen to load, choose the file, and finish the movie in one sitting. If I close VLC media player and re-open, I have to do it all over again for each file I want to walk. This was not an issue when I was connecting Passports to a WD Media Player box in 2008. What happened?
I also have an AppleTV in a closet somewhere, but I haven’t seen much in the way of MyCloud/AppleTV success stories. Is it worth it to dig it up?
Come to think of it, I haven’t seen much in the way of success stories for MyCloud working with other devices. Can anyone give me some hope?
All I want is to watch all my files and watch them with their subtitles. Do I need different software, hardware, whatever?
Dear internet, make my monster grow!
