I’m considering getting a WD TV Live to replace my Mediagate MG-450HD. One feature of the Mediagate I like is the Bookmark button on the remote where you can “bookmark” a video currently playing and watch it later without having to remember what video it is (handy when you’re watching several tv series and don’t want to keep track of which episode you left off at).
Using a video playlist on the WD TV Live could serve the same purpose, but I’ve read some posts about problems about video playlists (see here http://community.wdc.com/t5/Networking/Playlists-on-NAS-Serious-Limitation/m-p/7123/highlight/true#M576 and here http://community.wdc.com/t5/Networking/Tried-to-search-and-can-t-find-it-Network-shares-and-playlists/m-p/5201/highlight/true#M251).
I find it hard to believe those issue actually exist for a media player. Who puts all their video files in one folder anyways? I hope someone can dispel those concerns.
Does the WD TV Live playlist for videos work:
when the videos are stored on a NAS (network attached storage) device?
when the videos are in different folders?
For example, my Videos folder currently looks like this…
- TV Shows
------ The Office
------ Grey’s Anatomy
- Music Videos
Can I make a playlist of videos on my “Movies > New” folder and inside the TV Shows > The Ofiice?
- What’s the process of creating a video playlist using the remote? How easy / hard is it?
