    Only a limited number of files visible

    I have this Windows Home Server 2011 in my network.
    It is supposed to have a built in media server.
    When exploring the network from my tv, 42PFL7008K, I can only see mediafiles, like mp3, avi etc.
    .vob etc is not visible.
    Anyone an idea how to solve this?
    I would very much like to be able to play my dvd-movies...
    Thanks,

    Wim

    Hi,

    this depends on the Media Server (DLNA server) on your WHS... Try e.g. Twonky...

    Thanks for the reaction.
    You are sure that it is supposed to work with Windows Home Server 2011?

    Hi Wim,

    Please check the manual regarding supported multimedia on page 72:
    http://download.p4c.philips.com/file...12_dfu_eng.pdf

    .VOB flies are not supported by your TV, therefore they will not show up when browsing the network.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Hi Ina,

    thanks for your reaction too.
    In the same manual I read something about Media Server Software. Actually I am far from an expert on Media Server software, but is that remark, page 72 of the manual, supposed to mean that when I install media server software, I am supposed to be able to stream vob files tot my tv?
    Best regards,

    Wim

    Hi Wim,

    As your TV doesn't support the file format (.vob) it will not be able to render the media. This also goes for streaming over the network.

    Toengel is correct in saying that streaming also depends on the Media Server software, but if the TV doesn't support the file format, then it is not possible to play on your TV.

    So, in short, regardless of how you attempt to play the .vob files on your TV, it will not work as the TV won't recognise the file format.

    When creating backups of your DVDs I would suggest using a supported file format such as .avi or .mkv, if you wish to stream or play via USB to your TV.

    Best regards,
    Ina
