DLNA format question - MKV ?


is it planned to make the dlna-function of the tv compatible with mkv format via software update? i have the 46A756.
or is there a list which files are compatible with the dlna function. or better some settings for ffmpeg to convert to the right format? Wink

there is also no option for Motion Plus feature when using DLNA? is that right?

thanks and
best regards

Succeed in streaming MKV over DLNA

In reply to: DLNA format question - MKV ?

Actually, .mkv is not one of the media options that are categorized because it's
not a sanctioned format (not like WMV, MPEG, etc.) Besides, MKV is a
flexible container format which can store just about anything (H.264,
DivX, MPEG, any sort of audio, even menus and subtitles) while
WMV, MPEG is more or less complete formats so they know what to expect
while with MKV's you really can't tell without checking the contents is reported that many have good luck when streaming H.264 .mkv with
AC3 audio. DTS audio in .mkv may results in av sync problems so it is
advised to be converted to AC3 or AAC before streaming MKV. Anyway, the
best way solving this problem is streaming .mkv while transcoding the
file on the fly with media server like Tversity.
