Re: Co-Star and MKV files

All of my videos are MKV w/ AC3 audio. Since I use Serviio for DLNA streaming, I just made a profile for the Costar so that all MKV files have their audio transcoded to MP3. It's a work-around, but at least makes the Costar useful to me now..

Re: Co-Star and MKV files

I've had mixed success - some 720p mkv files, I could get video, but no audio. Others, simple wouldn't play. I don't think it has anything to do with mkv - as I had the same issue with mp4 files. The common thing is that all files are AVC h.264.

Re: Vizio units are reported to be shipping

I got my Co-Star today and I agree that the stock software isn't very good. The DLNA player (PlayPoint) would not play back a single video that I have.

I see the same thing. I also see it has 512MB of RAM and 2GB of storage. Too bad Vizio didn't make it 1GB of RAM... <sigh>

Revue 2.1 MediaPlayer

Does anyone have the MediaPlayer APK from the 2.1 version of the Revue? I really can't stand the MediaPlayer in the Honeycomb update. All of the other links I have seen where it was mentioned no longer function.

Re: Streaming from PC: Best Software/Formats to Rip???

I convert everything with Handbrake to x264 mkv. For any audio that is DTS, I use Popcorn audio converter to convert to 640kbps 5.1 AC3. With both 720p and 1080p, that plays perfectly with the Revue's DLNA player.

Re: accessing recovery mode/receiving OTA's with the 3.1 bet

if you revue will not boot into recovery but is not bricked you can still install the recovery via adb. otherwise the fix is in troubleshooting. I'm looking through the forums now for instructions on how to do this. In the meantime, do you have a link with this info? I haven't tried adb w/ the Revu...
