So i've been surfing the forums for a few days now but i am not very knowledgeable in the matter and am hoping someone more experienced can point me to either the rigth forum or better help me understand. I'd much rather learn than just be given a do this answer so feel free to elaborate!
My setup is as follows:
Currently running a usb external harddrive to a sony BDP-s790 to play content. Some content plays while others dont and this is frustrating because i do my best to get MKV encodes but i am quickly learning not all encodes are created equal. I will soon be upgrading to the Oppo 103 which may/may not have better support for file formats(researching this tonight). Hoping to locate the problem formats/encodes and redownload them in playable formats.
I am using Jriver on trial right now as a music media server. I dont know if this can also be used as a media server to stream movie content. My goal is to have the best quality and everything will be hardwired. Also on the note of formats, everything plays just fine on my PC via VLC so will running any formats from the PC through the server defeat encodes im having problems with? or is it being transmitted to the player, and the player decoding it, just as it would if attached via usb to the player?
Lastly can anyone point me to a good thread on how to use Jriver? I am uploading my library of songs and im having a problem with songs appearing twice or mulitple times even though it seems to be the same file off of one upload. Ive been toying with it for a week but not quite sure what the problem is. Also would like to start going through and renaming files to be more uniform and easier to sear IE same artist not collobaortaing artists.
