WD TV Live Media Player sees the SBS Media Server, shows icons for Artists, Albums, Genres, Years, New Music, Music Folder & Playlists.
Drilling down, all display album covers when appropriate.
MP3 tracks play, but FLAC does not. The WD TV Live will will try to play FLAC track for 10~13 seconds then goes on to next track. Titles and durations are displayed.
FLAC tracks can be played by the WD TV Live if selected using network shares rather than the Media Server.
Using the network shares to drill down into a directory, select an artist then an album and finally play emphasizes how good the Squeezebox Server concept is.
From a technical viewpoint it would be nice to be able to play FLAC, but from a commercial competitive view I'm not so sure and as for requirements, the WD TV will be used to play stored video from a server onto a second HDTV, it co-resides with a Touch, an SB3 and 2 Booms, so we don't need another streaming music player in the house.
XP SP3, 7.6.0 - r31644 . Server log is full of "missing ICU" errors, so no help there.
