DLNA and MKV/MP4 files streaming issue
Posted on 2014-08-29
I have some .MKV/.MP4 files I have been trying to play. I have tried multiple DLNA players and they all see to have the same issue with my TV.
My TV is a Samsung 55UND6000 smart TV(or so they claim).
I can copy the MKV video file to a USB flash drive, connect it to my TV and the .MKV/.MP4 file plays just fine. However, if I attempt to stream the same MKV file across the network, the TV will not play the file and give an error "unrecognized format". I have tried this with Twonky, XBMC and even trying to connect from my TV to an SMB share.
In all of the above scenarios, this work with .AVI file formats no problem.
Has anyone encountered this issue and know how to resolve it?
