Hi guys,

What media streamer you recommend please for playing large MKV files?
I have an AC Ryan Veolo and when I play MKV files with DTS MA larger than 12GB
it stutters. It is connected with 1000mbs network. When I play same files with my
Laptop on the same network connection through MPC HC they play flawless.
Videos are stored in a Seagate Central NAS drive.

Thanks in advance
Kevin

I know the WDTV live can play them and, even though they are no longer sold, the Boxee Box can play them.

I have a spare pc Windows 7 platform that is used only for running Mezzmo and I accomplish what your asking with out a hitch. No external media boxes, I use built in Samsung tv software.

Thanks for your reply guys.
Have to decide between WDTV Live and Mede8er 400X2S. Looks like the Mede8er is more powerful.

Is the Mede8er 600X3D worth the extra money. I won't be using 3D but it's better to have better processor for smooth playing.

The WDTV plays smoothly up to bitrates of ~50 Mbit/s.
