Just getting into the whole media server idea. I have installed Plex Media Server on my Windows PC and I am able to see content on both of my Direct receivers using the Media Share options. None of my videos play though and have the x beside them. I have read that Media Share only supports mpg2 so I converted a video to mp2 and it does in fact play although the program is not watchable.
I am thinking of getting a Chromecast or the new Roku Stick device supposedly to be released in April but would save the money if could get media share working. Are there other media servers better suited for Direct?
Thanks in advance.
