Apparently it's a known issue with Media Server
on the Synology.
I either have to rollback the firmware or wait for a fix.
Case closed regarding the ST50.
The media player of my Panasonic TX-P42ST50E suddenly stopped playing all my MP4 videos for no apparent reason a couple days ago.
I have :
+ a ST50 linked to my network by an ethernet cable
+ a Synology NAS where all my movies are stored
Last week I played a MP4 movie on my ST50 by browsing my Diskstation, something I've been doing for years.
Yesterday that same movie wouldn't start ?!
Same things with apparently all other files I successfully played multiple times in the past.
I can navigate my Diskstation on my Panny with no problem but when I choose a MP4 file, I either have the neverending spinning icon and/or a black screen and nothing happens (the timeline remains at 00:00:00)
The same MP4 file works fine if I copy it to a USB key and plug it to my Panny though !
Same failure with AVI videos
Only a couple of TS files downloaded from another source play fine.
According to VLC, all those files have the same video encoding : Codec : H264 - MPEG-4 AVC
(part 10) (avc1)
What I've tried so far (to no avail) :
+ installed the latest DSM 6.1 on my NAS
+ reboot of my NAS
+ reindexing of all media on NAS (although everything showed swiftly and comprehensively while browsing the library on TV)
+ reset to factory settings of TV
I am baffled because I don't understand what I've changed that could have caused these videos to stop playing.
I'm not sure if the culprit is the TV or the NAS
(the video file itself played a week ago so I guess I can rule it out)
Couldn't find anything similar on the internet...
Anyone think of something I could test/fix ?
Thank you in advance,
