A problem exists the software in all WD TV Live players. This is not a problem with my specific unit.
Two features of the player (which by themselves are each fine) combine to damage the user experience:
- When a user is watching a Video file and switches the Audio Track, the file restarts from the beginning
- When a user “Resumes” a Video file the device only remembers the TIME that the user was up to but not which audio track was in use
When combined, the result is that when I am watching a file but not using the default audio track I cannot “Resume”.
I have a folder full of TV episodes with two language tracks: Russian and English. I don’t speak Russian but that’s the default track.
Each episode is 50mins long. When I start an episode I can easily switch to the English stream and enjoy my file. However, if I stop halfway and then want to resume the file the next day there’s a problem. The WDTV offers to “resume” but goes back to the Russian track. If I switch to English it restarts the file.
The WD box should remember two elements for the RESUME feature:
- Audio track in use
It’s not “resuming” if you present something different to what was in use.
