WDTV Live player can not access network shares on WHS 2011 RC! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • OK, this is how I managed to overcome this issue (in order to play MKV files on WDTV Live box, as we all know streaming of MKV from WHS 2011 is not working):

     

    1. start "Computer Browser" service and set it to "Automatic" start (this part is crucial, it seems that WDTV box uses this service for auto discovery)

     

    2. enable "Guest" acount (per user authentication is working but "No Media in folder" message appears every time when you browse shares

     

    Does anyone have other suggestion?

  • I have a playstation 3 and I simply use a program called mkv2vob.  It takes the mkv and changes it to an avi.  playstation can then play it.

    Thank you! this absolutley is the answer. My server now shows up in the network shares.

     

    The only difference in my setup is that i have a separate user account set up for the WDTV Live.
