Yes, you can play directly m2ts, but you lose all the advantages of AVCHD structure.
Meaning, multiple audio and subtitles, Mainmenu, etc...
AVCHD structure is like a Mini-bluray.
And that works on every player I've used, except this Yamaha.
What a step-back
The manual shows an AVCHD & Photo, but I don't know if that is from the dlna server or the player's interpretation. Neither folder is in the hard drive. Perhaps the AVCHD directory was expected to be in the server as well as Photo?
I also have a Yamaha RX-A1000 receiver. Looking at the DLNA selection, I see Music, Video & Pictures; Pictures don't exist on the hard drive. I checked the Pictures directory on the AVR & see various aspects that a pic can have, e.g. date taken. I know I didn't put the directories there.
The directory for my video on the hard drive is Videos, so where did the "Video" label come from in both the avr & player?
Is all this Yamaha's implementation of accessing DLNA or what the DLNA server passes to the devices?
Still trying to understand. Hindsight says I should have gotten a real NAS where I would be able to have some control on how DLNA is configured.
Regarding the AVCHD directory, it could be a "dup" like a problem I had with creating a "Video" directory. Or a bug that need to be reported to Yamaha for a fix.
I'm finding I think I need to reboot my router so that it forces a real rescan by its DLNA app.
