Workaround allows WDTV Live to display video when using WMP (v12) 'Play To' function


In order to play videos on the WDTV Live using the Windows 7 “Play To” feature:

(1) Put the WDTV Live in display mode, by using the remote to view any photo.

(2) Once the photo is open, Windows Media Player can be used to “play” any video in the Library “to” the WD TV Live.

Thus, the selected video can be controlled from a Notebook / Netbook PC and viewed on a TV - w/ both video & audio.


Although WDTV Live currently supports 95% of the Windows 7 “Play to” feature, WD needs to fix the 5% that’s not working ASAP.

Have you search the rest of the forum about this? I’d give it a try. Or, have you tried contacting WD’s Technical Support about this? I would consider giving them a call or sending them an email.
