Twonky whats your problem with mkv's??

Post by Seany » Sun Aug 05, 2012 2:22 pm

Guys need some help here were to watch a movie and im getting video not supported error. The last movie I watched full 1080 mkv last week was fine. Nothing has changed since then at all. In the last month I have upgraded to fun plug 0.7, updated twonky to 7.0.9 and updated transmission. When i log into twonky on the pc I cant see any of the media servers or set them to like smasung tv or radio or whatever type of device it may be.

Specs:
samsung 40c7000
twonky: 7.0.5 (testing to see if this lower version worked)
dlink 320

How did you deduce that the problem is twonky and mkv?
From what you have posted, at first glance
it sounds like the issues are more to do with AV or Firewall software
that is blocking twonky

I came to the conclusion as every other file type still works when being streamed to the tv its just mks not playing

On your pc when you go to the following url

http://127.0.0.1:9000/#sharing

and look under the Media Recievers section

you are seeing none?
