I was thinking of getting the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V. But wanted to first check to see if the if the WD TV Live Hub could play the video files created at 1080/60p. I downloaded the baseball clip from http://vimeo.com/groups/34630/videos/22535092 to try.
The hub was able to play it but after a couple of seconds it started to play the clip in slow motion and you could not chnage this from then on.
Anyone tried these type of mts files on the hub without any issues. I have no problems playing the clips through the USB port on my Sony BDV-e370 Home theatre system. But would prefer to have all video files on the Hub.
What’s the media info of the files created? They should play fine if they have a supported codec and container, if not then you’re down to remuxing the file to make it compatible.
Check the Hub user manual for the list of files that work.
1080p60 is not supported by the chipset in any container/codec combination.
