DLNA with TV LED 46VL748 - Video not supported ?
Have you experienced problems with the DLNA functionality of TV LED 46VL748 ?
This utility works well with Photos and Music but does not support any SD Video like simple AVI or MP4 (tested with DivX3, DivX6 and AVC)
I have a NAS (QNAP TS-439) with UPNP Twonkymedia server running and Videos are playing well with other UPNP client like my iPhone (with Twonky Mobile) or my PC.
I have the latest firmware already installed on my TV.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you check user’s manuals on page 52 you will find a list of all supported formats for DLNA playback.
As I can see mp4 is listed there but there is also remark that some files may not be played.
What does it mean exactly?
Because of the huge encoding on format options, which exist in the market, TOSHIBA cannot guarantee, that each file-type mentioned in the list, will also work in practice.
What you can try is to transfer your files into other supported format listed in manuals and test the functionality again.
Firmware upgrade will not help much. Decoder chips used in TVs are embedded and limited to its specification. Fact is that these decoder chipsets cannot be upgraded afterwards.
Please try to change files format and test it again. It would be nice if you can send some feedback.
