    Buffalo: Media Player app won't show video files on NAS


    Buffalo (Routers): Media Player app won't show video files on NAS
    Hi, 1st time on the forum so apologies if the below enquiry has been covered already but I can’t find a conclusive answer anywhere.

    Kit: Xbox One S

    Buffalo LinkStation Live LS-CHL 2.0TB

    Both wired on the LAN

    I’m trying to play video files from my NAS via the Media Player app on the Xbox, but I’m having some problems:

    First, the Xbox shows every folder on my NAS except the one with the movie files in it.

    Second, it does show camera folders with video files in them but when I try to access them it just say says “No content”

    This where it goes a bit weird. If in the Media Player app I select Music, rather than Video, it does show the folder with movie files. I open it and it also shows the movie files themselves. I click on one and it starts playing the audio from the film.

    I go back into Video and the folder disappears again.

    Music plays fine. Photos display fine. The NAS is fine. All folders are visible and all video content plays perfectly on the following devices:

    o Sony BD player, via wifi

    o Asus O!Play, via LAN

    o Samsung TV in another room via LAN

    o Android tablet with Skifta app, via Wifi

    o Windows 7 desktop, via LAN

    o Windows 10 laptop, via wifi

    o Chromebook, via wifi

    So accessing the content over the network is not a problem. It seems the only device in my house that won’t play the media files is the Xbox. But one of the main reasons for getting the Xbox was so that I could get rid of the mountain of hardware under the
    TV and do everything on a single device.

    Now I have a bigger pile of hardware, not a smaller one.

    Happy to be told I’m being an idiot and the problem is easily resolved. All advise gratefully accepted.

    Cheers MikT

    :)

    xbox one a step backwards

    all my media is stored on a nas. the xbox 360 used to be able to play all my media from my nas with system media player, but this wonderful leap backwards of a system can't even play videos from a usb key. bring back system media player app or let XBMC develop
    an app for your system. SORT OUT YOU LIFE MICROSOFT.

    Black issues with an XBOX One S and the media player

    Which is the best method of playback from a NAS quality wise.

    Media Player (Standard DNLA default app)

    Plex app - accessing same files on a plex Server

    Entertainment>My films & TV>Personal>Media Servers
    (The interface is different in this method compared to the stock DLNA media player app)

    Media Player Not showing MKV files.

    There are no warnings or error messages.

    When I select all video's in the Media Player App, it shows all my videos on my media server apart from the mkv videos.

    I know there are mkv videos on the media server, but the Xbox Media Player App doesn't show them.

    EDIT- I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Media Player App. That didn't solve the problem.

    Can Play Video only from USB Stick not through Shared PC

    Allo;

    on the 360: My Video Apps -> System Video Player -> PC -> media file == does not play

    on the 360: My Video Apps -> System Video Player -> Portable Device -> media file == plays just fine

    (the "Portable Device" is simply a USB stick)

    so it's the same player on the 360, same file, but two different "locations". Should play them both it seems... no?

    XBOX ONE NAS server connectivity request

    GREAT JOB MICROSOFT! They have added DNLA & MKV support in the Media Player! I can now play all my files (Video, Music, photo's) directly from my NAS server! Well done in listening!

    Media Player error 0xc00d36c4 streaming MKV from PC

    Maybe someone could at least confirm for me whether this is even a use-case that is expected to work?Is it expected that you can stream MKV video using the Media Player app on Xbox One from a Win8.1 PC media library?

    I have subsequently tried to re-pro the issue on a fresh build of Win8.1 on a different PC on my home network, using the same MKV files, and same Media Streaming options. In this case Media Player app on XB1 does not even list the MKV files within this media
    library. Maybe this is the default behaviour instead?

    On the PC hosting the MKV files with which the Media Player app gives error 0xc00d36c4, I once had some third-party MKV codecs installed (CCCP) so that I could watch MKVs in Media Player 12 for Windows 8. Once MS added MKV support to the Video app in Win8.1
    I uninstalled these third-party codecs. Could this be the only reason that the Media Player app on XB1 sees the MKV files in this media library, and it isn't even supposed to?

    DLNA/Play To Not Working

    Actually, scratch all of that. Now the Xbox One shows up in the phone app and I can share content to it, but it comes up in Xbox Video, which won't let me choose to make the image my dashboard background. The phone still won't show up in Xbox One Media Player.
    Any thoughts?
