Hi all, this is my first post but I want to start with saying that I’m a huge fan of what WD is doing with these devices and the price can’t be beat for the functionality the WDTV series offers, (regardless of a few issues here and there).
That being said I’ve hit a small roadblock that I can’t seem to wrap my head around as to why the issue occurs but the main part is I have some avi files with an xvid video stream and a mp3 or sometimes ac3 audio stream on a windows home server box that I have setup for file shares and network backups.
I have a ton of files on this server and most play flawlessly but some choose to not play on the wdtv live even though other playable files are of the same structure codec-wise (I receive the file not supported error message).
So my only solution (without re-encoding the original file) has been to copy the video file (un-edited) to a usb wd passport drive I have and plug the drive in directly to the wdtv live box to play from the drive over usb versus my networked solution.
100% of the time this solution works without a hitch.
So WDTV community, are there any other persons experiencing this issue and if so were solutions found?
