I own a bdp5200 blu ray player. Recently i tried to play a downloaded mkv-video from my dnla nas server. The player didn't see the file, whilst there was no problem when i played the same file from my usb stick. Other mkv files where visible and playable form the server.
I have ugraded teh fimrware with version 1.55

Can anyone explain/help?

Which media server are you using? For some media server, e.g. WMP, they dont support MKV streaming.

You can try with Twonkymedia, it should work better.

I use the DSM 4.0 mediaserver for my synology NAS. I resolved the problem by changing some settings in the mediaserver. I can stream now all my mediafiles just fine. Thanx for replying.
