The only drawback is that it wont play the next Aud/Vid files automaticly!
16 September 2012
Summary: This is a wonderful product with only one drawback that I can see is "It won’t play the next Audio or Video files automatically!" The WD Mini Player will go to the next file and play it automatically! It can be used to play back video, audio, and pictures from any USB hard drive or storage device. Two USB ports are built into the device, allowing you to connect multiple hard drives simultaneously.
Summary: I purchased two of these over a year ago and I am very happy with them. I use them to play movies stored on my network-attached storage systems. There is very little that this device wouldn't play. The manual outlines allowable audio/video stream format combinations and there were only a couple of sources I came across which had a combination that the player didn't want to handle.
Summary: i bought it because my t.v. wouldn't show all of the qmovies that i had on my hard drive. i would plug it to the usb port on the t.v. and well it seems that about 30 movies wouldn't show up and some of the the movies i added wouldn't always show up. so when i bought this i was glad to see that everything showed up that was on the hard drive and was glad that i didn't have to constantly switch between the other 2 hard drives i had.
Summary: the device is more like to use and easy, it's also super practical and easy mobility, their functions are very comprehensive and I play all movies or series that I see for me is usually the best.
Summary: So far it's played everything I've tossed at it. AVI (xvid and divx), Mp4, Mkvs (of various bitrates). This little unit is great for my samsung tv as it eliminates all the cables and peripherals necessary if you were to attach a laptop. Youtube, pandora and the various other internet apps works wonderfully. The only complaint I have is that this unit does take a little bit of time to load up my WESTERN PORTABLE harddrive.
Summary: Well, the player obviously develops - in WD TV Live developers have cleaned the majority of problems of model WD TV. With a network, support of decoder DTS and various media the Internet-services the player became very quite good. And if still to consider, that it costs really copecks, - one of the best budgetary models in the market turns out simply.
Summary: I have used this device for two weeks now and have never been happier with a gadget. I purchased a USB wireless adapter that worked great out of the box with the WDTV. The WD detected it immediately and connection was a snap. The device, after 2 firmware updates, discovered my media server running TVersity and Jriver Media players. I opted to keep the TVersity as it was free. I chose not to use the transcoding feature as the WDTV can open just about any video file.
Summary: I've had an HDTV for a while, but no actual HD devices, so I got this little thing. I got it so I could watch movies, both local and network, and it most definitely doesn't disappoint. I paired mine with a Western Digital WD Elements 2.5 TB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive , which has so far worked well. Here's some of the key features I liked the most: * Plays MKVs! It can change audio and subtitle tracks on-the-fly as well, in addition to having chapter support.
