Unsupported Data viewing videos on PS3

Post by licenced » Sat May 17, 2008 9:20 pm

Hi there,

I have a Buffalo LinkStation with Twonky 4.3 (I guess Twonky stopped supporting LinkStations after 4.3? - shame as it wasn't long after I paid for the full version).

I also have a PS3, updated yesterday just after I bought it, to 2.35.

The two are connected over Wi-Fi.

The PS3 sees the Twonky server fine. I can play MP3s fine. I can view photos fine. However, whenever I view folders containing videos I see an icon with the text Unsupported Data next to each file. If I put some of the files on a USB stick and plug this into the PS3 I can watch those videos no problem. They are all DivX format, although I tried converting them into various other formats using PS3Video9, with the same results.

So, is the problem the Wi-Fi - can Twonky or the PS3 not stream videos over wi-fi? Or is the problem Twonky - can 4.3 not stream videos to the PS3?

Thanks
Dave

Ah, just found the download area for version 4.4 for Linkstation. It's only available through the FAQ's page as far as I can see.

Will try it

OK, version 4.4.5 is now installed and is working well.

Strange that these versions are only available through the FAQ pages.

Also strange that I dropped off the automated new version update e-mails.
