ue40c7700 supported DLNA Formats

Simple questions seems hard to answer.
Which video formats are supported by the ue40c7700 over DLNA? I'm using a Synology DS213 with DSM 4.1.

Find files that do play (yes, such is in the manuals) but then go get MEDIA INFO (google that) and keep notes of what works. Eventually you'll find a few more than what's in the manual.

I was hoping for some guidens
by WarnerW / September 22, 2012 6:49 PM PDT

Obviously I did, but the manual is 'quite summarily' on this point.
And I tried many formats already. And I must say, I'm not disappointed.
It plays mkv, mp4, etc. but also m2ts directly. Depending on the codecs off course.

I was just hoping for maybe the latest on this from Samsung, like in the post:

From what I've seen.

Samsung is not detailed enough for some folk. Even I think they should pick some app (like Media Info) and use that to describe the encoding.

I'm guessing you want to know what works on this model. What I'm seeing is that this maker will publish a basic list and the devices can do more than what's on that list but will not put such in any manual.

Also, consumers are used to PCs where we can update and get more features and it's not much of a stretch to think you are thinking that more will be added. Wish I had better news.
