    My PFL4508 do not show my mkv files

    I have all the mkv files in a windows 7 laptop, sharing them through a homegroup in the video library.

    If in the TV I browse the network, I can see the share, and I cna see 2 example wmv files of Windows but not the mkv movies.

    The mkv files have the codecs x264 or h264 and AC3 or DTS.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    you are using the Windows Media Player as DLNA server. This server does not support MKV files... You need a more powerful DLNA server such as Twonky or Serviio.

    Hi rissotto,

    You can also try to update the Windows Media Player / Windows 7 codecs, but Windows does typically not like to play along with MKV files. You can find more information about codecs and how to update them on Microsoft support pages.

    Best regards,
    Ina
