After playing around this weekend with Wild Media Server, I thought I’d give it a plug for use with the WDTV Live. There have been some fleeting mentions of this package in this forum, but they don’t quite seem to do it the extent of credit it deserves.
There have been numerous discussions around issues such as wonky (pun intended) mp4 playback and non working thumbnails. All these issues do not seem to be present when using Wild. It is somewhat more work to configure, but worth it in my opinion. Thumbnail flexibility is a highlight.
Wild is freeware equivalent for now, but this may change later this year. This won’t worry me as it is a wonderful media server for the players in the household.
If you’re having issues, you may well find Wild to be the answer.
