Yo, the following:

Since 2 days i cant play any MKV files (via DLNA Server, Windows Media Player) that worked before on my TV Panasonic VT50, there is a "file not supported" message. Even my Panasonic blu ray player BTD221 cant play any MKV file. What happend meanwhile? I didnt change anything on my PC, all files and foldes are still "unlocked", no permissions set or changed.

Windows media player DLNA server does not support mkv so how that even worked in the first place is a mystery.

Use Serviio instead and see if it works then, it should.

I have installed K-Lite Codec pack a few years ago and updated it from time to time (but not 2 days ago), that could be the reason. I ll give Serviio a try, thanks.

Ok here i am again:

Serviio doesnt work. On my TV i can find the Serviio Service and i even can click trough the folders, but there doesnt appear any video-file, not even working AVIs.

Thats my settings, where is the problem?:

Your TV supports MKV, so try turning off transcoding in Serviio.
