Which video format?

Post by Dimitri » Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:04 am


Sorry for my english ...

I just bought a Qnap II 119P with a Samsung TV EU40D6530. I would like to steam videos with Twonky, but I don't know which video format to use ?! I have converted VOB to Mpeg4 HD and a film of 6min. is 400MB. So, when I try to load it from Samsung's Smart Hub, after 20min, it is still not loaded.

Could you help me please ?

Thank you in advance.

That's generally a sign that a format is not supported. Check your manual or Samsung's site for a list of supported format. One format that is always supported is MPEG-2, because it's a required format for DLNA-certification.
