Best Video format for streaming with DLNA?

Can anyone tell me what file type and codecs will provide the best resolution and quality for streaming to the new 3D 1080P TV (UN55C700) & BD player (DB-C6900)? I have plenty of bandwidth and can see my VOB files, but it does not play like a regular DVD. You need to guess which VOB is the main movie. I've tried MP4 and it works OK, but after a lot of searching, I can't find any good documentation or good write-ups on this subject. Thanks in advance.

dgt02,

I'll be happy to bump this back up. The resolution is often times more important than the file format itself, but I'm sure others can speak better on this preference than me. Happy

Try to use DivX or MP4

Hi.. I suggest you to use DivX/Xvid or MP4. Both formats work great for me.

DivX resolution

In reply to: Try to use DivX or MP4

On some models at least, DivX resolution is limited to 720. This might be mentioned in the user guide.

My suggestion would be to encode a number of short clips with different settings and check to see which don't work.
