I downloaded the advanced server from the link you posted, but I'm not sure exactly how to get it running. I installed it and opened it up on my pc but when I put my ip address into my Avel Link Player it immediatly pops up saying could not connect. I have Avel Link Server working but I am also trying to get MKV's to work. Any help woul dbe greatly apperciated.
It's been years since I set it up - and back then we had the web site with forum and directions. Maybe others remember the set up specifics but I don't and rarely use the advanced server anymore - I use ps3 mediaserver mostly which I believe will handle/decode the files you are interested in if your computer is fast enough (mine isn't but Iam only streaming ATSC files)
If you bought recently maybe you can complain to igsshop.com for selling without supporting. But it was a beta even back then.
Or go to their japan site to see if directions / support exist there but you need to speak japaneese http://www.iodata.jp/
I got PS3 Mediaserver to show up on my JVC-SRDVD-100U but when I go into it, it says "no movies in default video folder" in the Shared Folders section of Java PS3 Media Server, I have put two folders in the list. One that contains a single mkv, and one that contains several avi's.
Perhaps it was a bad recommendation. I put a single avi file into one of my video folders and using ps3 server the lp2 didn't display that file for me. The server built into the drive displayed it but wouldn't play it so I know it was there
My use of ps3 server is really limited to ts tp and mpg files
WOW - thank you so much!!! I was messing around with my old Avel Link trying to get it to play a particular format. I did a revert to earlier firmware, and I thought I had saved those versions on CD or hard drive. WRONG! I had done all my fw updates over the Internet. That teaches me a lesson - don't update through the player - do it on the Internet and move it with media!
Thanks again - my day went from bad mood to GREAT mood!!
Since i follow this thread since quite a lot of time, I will remove the dust on my sleeping AVLP2 and try to resurrect it thanks to your files.
Let's see what I will get from it!
