Streaming media through WD TV Live

Recommended Posts

I am having trouble streaming shows from my media storage to my players.  I have a FireStick which appears to stream the TV shows fine, but can not handle any of the movies I have downloaded.  It pauses frequently to let them buffer. 

 

I also have a WD TV Live that can find the EMBY server but then reports an error that it cannot play the file type of the movie when accessed as a mediaserver.  If I connect it as a windows share, it will play the files but again there is a lot of lag and buffering.

 

Still new to this whole setup.  Let me know if there is more information that you need.

Assuming you are using the FTV app on your stick, what version?

 

Be sure you are using the latest one (1.1.04 at this moment).

 

That having been said, the stick will require transcoding of any content over SD resolution because the processor in it simply isn't powerful enough to handle decoding much more than that.  So, your server will have to be up to the task of transcoding as well.
