i have a WDC MyBook World Edition and use it for streaming Videos to Windows 7 (Windows Mediaplayer 12) machines with Twonky. The Problem I have is this:
Playing MKV locally works with Haali Mediasplitter. Once on the NAS, the files are shown in Twonky/Mediaplayer, but Mediaplayer says, it can't play the video because of unknown Fileformat. I tried a lot, including setting Twonky's database to the mime-type x-matroska and several other types. None of them worked. To find out if Twonky actually streams the video I used VLC Mediaplayer, and opened the network stream with the networkaddress of the video, copied from Mediaplayer. VLC plays the video.
Can someone help me with this problem? If i can't stream mkv's Twonky is useless for me and I have to find another streaming solution, which I want to avoid.
