Windows 7: Still having problems sharing MKV files

19 Jul 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Still having problems sharing MKV files

I have installed the K-Lite Codec Pack. Now WMP can see MKV files. They are listed in Libraries -> Videos -> whatever.

If I look at the AVI and the MKV files Security settings, they all have WMPNetworkSvc set to Read allowed.

But I still don't see them with my BluRay player over the network. (I do see the folders, but they are empty.) The BluRay player does support MKV with MPEG2 and AVC content, which is what my files are.

It plays the MKV files just fine from the USB port. And according to the manual, there is no difference between USB and dlna file compatibilty, except USB plays asf, wmv and m4v files.

I also have a problem giving access to WMPNetworkSvc to some folders. (I guess it is supposed to happen automatically when I add a parent folder to the shared library.

I don't know the ins and outs of serving up MKV files. But I did use MakeMKV for some time(I had a USB set top box) and one of the features I did not get to try was serving MKV over home network. If you go to the forum you can find out more. I believe MakeMKV is still downloadable as beta meaning it is free. You do have to download a new key with each beta version update though.

MakeMKV - Make MKV from Blu-ray and DVD

Also you may gain some insight about networking MKV from reading the forum.
There is a server standard it supports but I don't recall the name since I did not have a "live" player with network port.
