i am making H.264 avi files (Mainconcept / ACC Audio) of my VHS tapes using Sorenson Squeeze, and playing them on my WD Live over ethernet from my Qnap server. WD Live Firmware is 1.02.21.
Everything seems to be going great and the quality is excellent of the files. However i did a full render of a videotape the other day in a single file, it was 2hrs20 (an old Eurovision) and the file will not play on the WD TV Live. It gives the message that the media is not supported, which is very wierd. I tried the render again in case it was a render problem. Then i reduced the length of the render to only 1hr 45 and tried it on the WD TV Live and it PLAYED FINE.
So there seems to be a length of file issue with the WD TV Live firmware. Has anyone else experienced this?
I have since tested this with many files and bitrates and file sizes over the past few weeks and the problem remains.
This problem does not seem to be with the SIZE of the file, but the length of the file. ie the bitrate does not seem to affect the problem.
This is not great as some movies go over 2 hrs and certainly i do not want to cut a movie into two half files, it ruins the viewing experience.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
