Thinking about upgrading

Hi Everyone,

I’m new to the forum and I have a question about the WD TV Live.  I bought the WD TV Gen 1 model over a year ago and I simply love it.  I’m would like to upgrade to the WD TV Live but I have a question regarding the player.  I have a lot of MKVs with subtitles and I usually convert to hardsubbed AVIs to play on the media player.  I know that I can play MKVs but I don’t really like the way the subs appear.  My question is, does this WD TV Live have a MKV player like Windows Media Classic or VLC?  I would like to play the MKVs with subs the way they are made.

I would like to know if this is possible before I buy the player.  Thank you all so much for help.

Welcome to the forums.

All of my MKV files have soft subs in them that the Live will play just fine (if I turn them on).
