DLNA and Twonky on LS220, cant see some video files
« on: April 13, 2020, 03:04:58 pm »
Hello,

I have LS220D (LS220D9C7) Version 1.74-0.02
Version: TwonkyServer Premium 7.1.1-dsd

Made one folder named video, setup as DLNA.
Copied some video movies.
I can see all files on server.
But most interesting is that some of files my devices (TV and twonky server) cannot see. I noticed that some .avi files not visible.
All files .mkv is visible.
I tried delete and copy new files. So some of them is visible again, some not.
I am using Total commander as copying.
This is some crazy thing which seems works by random stuff.

 
I tried rename files, change directory. Nothing helps.



Sorry, I working on this already few days, no answers or solutions in this forum or internet.
Thanks for any feedback or help.

MKV has never been supported by linkstations.  And because of that, I opted for an HTPC instead of DLNA with any buffalo device.  You may want to save yourself the headache, and do the same.

I suggest going over the manual and testing some different file types encoded with different codecs.  Not all of them are going to work, that's for sure.  DLNA is super finicky.  You can try renaming MKV to M4V, but it probably won't work.
