We really love these players but one of them is starting to breakdown after many years of quality service. So we are looking for a replacement. I really wish WD would come out with a new player with x265 support because no one creates a better player than you guys. (No one is even in the same league!)
I’m wondering if anyone has been able to find something close to this player. I just spoke with Roku and their top-of-the-line (Ultra 4K) player has a lot of lacking features compared to the WDTV Live. It doesn’t retrieve metadata (reads from within a file), no xvid\divx and spotty Dolby Digital support. Doesn’t work well with a NAS storage device.
We’ve been ripping our dvds since 2000 and have an extensive collection of thousands of videos. Many of the older ones are with xvid\divx and we really don’t want to re-rip. Nor do we want to go into every video and add metadata information. We don’t care about apps, we just want something to stream the collection through NAS and usb HDs.
WD you left a huge hole the market. Really wish you would reconsider
getting back in the game. In the meanwhile, can anyone offer some suggestions on a replacement?
