What video formats does AllShare support on the UNC6500

by gofasterplease / August 12, 2010 12:14 AM PDT

I normally use TVersity Media Server as my DLNA compliant media server. I generally stream DIVX, XVID, and H.264 (in an MKV wrapper) content. Which of those formats will my UNC6500 support without transcoding?

A container is like a box.

In reply to: Container?

The box can hold or contain things. It does not mandate what those things are.

In the case of MKV, no maker writes they play MKV files. They will write they support MKV which is always true so far. When we look inside the MKV (box or container) then we find some encoded content and that is what matters.

It's a shame you will have to learn all this.
