Unable to play video files (.m4v) from my Western Digital MyBook Live on my Sony BluRay BDP-S370.
-Sony BluRay BDP-s370
-Western Digital MyBook Live 1TB (MyBookLive 01.02.03 : MioNet 220.127.116.11 : Twonky 5.1.9)
My Sony BlueRay BDP-S370 is DNLA certified to play external files. I was successful playing a number of video files, including .m4v when I had a Western Digital MyBook plugged into the BlueRay via USB.
I then purchased a Western Digital MyBook Live to be able to access files wirelessly. The MyBook Live has the Twonky Media Manager on it. The BluRay player finds the MyBook Live just fine and I’m able to play music files and view photo files. But when I try to play video files, I receive an error message of “There is no playable file”. A handful of MPEG files have been recognized, but most have not, which add an additional layer of mystery to the situation. Why would some be recognized while some are not. Instructions for the Sony BDP-S370 do support mpeg and mp4 (proved by when they worked fine with the USB connected MyBook).
I’m looking for any recommendations or support as to why the files would work with the wired version of the MyBook but not the wireless. Not sure if the issue is from the BlueRay, the MyBook Live, or Twonky Media Server which sits in the MyBook Live.
Thanks for any support anyone can provide.
