Quick Codec Question


I’m planing to buy TV Live and have one quick question regarding codecs.

Is specs it’s said that TV Live support m2ts container but no information about codecs that are supported.

I can see TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1) and as i think it means that ts\tp\m2t containers support MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC- codecs. But nothing about m2ts supported codecs.

Per manual-



MPEG Audio
Dolby Digital


An audio receiver is required for multi-channel surround sound digital output.

Video notes:

  1. MPEG-2 MP@HL up to 1920x1080p24, 1920x1080i30, or 1280x720p60 resolution.

  2. MPEG4.2 ASP@L5 Rectangular shape video decoding up to 1280x720p30 resolution, support for B Pictures, data partitioning and error resiliency. No support for global motion compensation (GMC).

  3. WMV9/VC-1 MP@HL up to 1280x720p60 (<90% of the P-picture macroblocks have 4 motioin vectors) or 1920x1080p24 resolution. Up to 1280x720p30 or 1920x1080i25 resolution if unconstrained 4MV bitstream.

  4. VC-1 AP@L3 up to 1920x1080i30 (<60% of the B-picture macroblocks have 4 motion vectors), 1920x1080p24, or 1280x720p60 resolution. Up to 1920x1080i25, 1920x1080p24, or 1280x720p60 resolution if unconstrained 4MV bitstream.

  5. MPEG-4.10 (H.264) BP@L3 up to 720x480p30 or 720x576p25 resolution, including FMO and ASO.

  6. MPEG-4.10 (H.264) MP@L4.1 and HP@L4.1 up to 1920x1080p24, 1920x1080i30, or 1280x720p60 resolution (constrained to match BD and HD-DVD specifications), 180 Mbin/s maximum for CABAC streams.

Found it in an appendix. Thanks.

Glad you found it, but pay very close attention to those Video footnotes. Anything out of spec will likely have problems.

Main purpose is to play files from blu-ray discs that  have M2TS containers with mpeg-4 video and dda or dts audio.

Just have bought TV Live + WD Elements Desctop. M2TS with MPEG-4 AVC codec and DTS audio works just fine.
