How to Stream MKV/VOB files over DLNA?
"Hi, my Panasonic TV is DLNA enabled and I have streamed some videos from my Asus Router (which has attached storage)...but it won't play MKV files or VOBs. Most of my backed up videos are in this format for streaming to my PS3 (which is connected to a different TV in the house).So my question is...should my Panasonic plasma TV be able to stream videos in these formats? And if not, is there a format which is suitable for both the PS3 and the DLNA Panasonic plasma TV?"
DLNA is the solution to connect and enjoy files including videos, music and photos via home wired or wireless network. If you have a DLNA Certified TV, how about enjoy HD videos, movies or recordings in your big screen TV?
