With or without trailers, im very happy to have had bought this player in september 2012, has being 3 years of firmware updates and still going strong.All that time spent developing and implementing the code out the window. They are looking at using a different source for the trailers. Which of course has to be developed and implemented.
It is not the size of the movie but the actual bit rate. For example: A 4 hour movie can be 40 GB is size when a 2 hour movie can also be 40 GB in size. The 2 hour movie would be more difficult to stream due to higher bit rate. 10/100 is fast enough to stream any movie to a media player. 10/100 on a healthy lan can support up to 88mb/s. No Blu-ray 3D or 2D reaches that number.Hi!!
I want to buy a mede8er med1000x3d, and I would like to know if anyone who owns one of those has tried to stream movies that are around 40gb. I have a NAS and I would like to stream movies from it. Many media servers claim to have giabit ethernet but they really have 100.
Thanks for your help!
So in effect the unit is hardwired. If this is true it is impressive as wireless can be saturated very quickly when streaming high-bit rate content. I would hold judgement unit I can do my own testing. My entire home is wired for Cat 6 so no wireless required other than for phones and tablets but your statement is interesting none the less. How far is the bridge?It doesn't. Sorry, I should have added that my wireless is using a main router and a bridge, both AC.
I have the MED600x3D which is the same just without the drive bay and no there isn't a "Playlist" BUT if you put all of the videos in a single folder and name them accordingly it will play them in the order they are in or you can browse the folder and play them individually.Would someone who owns a Mede8er 800X please tell me if I can create video playlists. I want to play my own downloaded trailers, custom video from iVipid and then a movie after that. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply, that's good information to know. It wouldn't be ideal, but it could work.I have the MED600x3D which is the same just without the drive bay and no there isn't a "Playlist" BUT if you put all of the videos in a single folder and name them accordingly it will play them in the order they are in or you can browse the folder and play them individually.
There are two methods mentioned in the manual, it took a few tries until I found out that my units USB Ports were dead and had to swap out my unit. After that it worked fine.can someone tell me how to do a firmware update on a x3d please , is the option to do a firmware update in the system menu ? i cant find it ?
Blimey , seems a bit long winded , but thanks for the reply / helpThere are two methods mentioned in the manual, it took a few tries until I found out that my units USB Ports were dead and had to swap out my unit. After that it worked fine.
