View Full Version : WD TV Live Input Wanted

April 15th, 2010, 09:02 AM
I've been looking at media players lately. I think I'm going to pick up a WD TV Live soon. Likely in the next couple days.

I'm just looking for any input/suggestions/warnings that some of you might have.

I'm going to attach an external hard drive to it and transfer files mainly via USB stick so I'm not concerned with networking really. But I do have some questions.

1) Does it play .mp4 video? I've not been able to get a definitive answer on this. I know it doesn't play the DRM'd apple mp4's, but that's not what I'm asking.

2) I see that it plays FLAC audio which is super cool. Does it have any other open source support?

3) Does it have audio playlists or something of the like? I would like to be able to play entire albums, not just one single at a time. Is there cover-art support? Even if I have to download it from google...

Thanks for the input to anyone who has any experience here.
