Hi all.
I'm new of the forum.
I want to buy a Blu-Ray player. I found the BDP5200 very interesting.
I don't found information about the file compatibility on DLNA. It can read mkv, Divx HD and Xvid from a network hard drive that supports DLNA (like WD my book live) or from a router with usb hard disk that supports UPnP Media Server (like Linksys E4200)?
BDP5200 is able to manage more different audio and sub inside a mkv?
Thank you all :o

regrettably, mkv cannot be streamed through DLNA.
to my knowledge this cannot be done by other brand as well.

so i just live with it, when play mkv i just use my HDD.

I don't know if the BDP5200 can stream mkv on DLNA, but the BDP7600 can ;)http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?3953-Streaming-MKV-to-BDP7600-12&p=22792&viewfull=1#post22792

I tried allot of media software, but using twonky server i can actually stream MKV now on my BDP5200!!

So it is possible with the lastest trial version of twonkey server.

Hi preddy,

From external HDD to 500gb to 1TB ;)

Yes but the loading time might be longer which makes sence..

Also better next time start a new topic since you are going of this thread...

My experience:
TVersity on windows 7 and WXP (never transcode)

BDP5200 (DLNA cable connected) works smooth with mkv up to 1920*1080 audio DTS, AAC, subtitles and multilanguage.
The only problem is with FLAC audio.
My Wifi connection (54 kbps) is not enough fast and stable to play HD video.
