I'm almost to the ideal I want with Vortexbox. I have my music all on my Vortexbox server and have now loaded several DVDs as MKV files and some as MKV an MP4. Now I just need to get a way to play them.
I can play an MP4 video I previously tranferred but can't play the MP4 made by vortexbox. I get an error message if I open the file with Quicktime, it plays video OK with Windows Media Player but audio sounds like the whrrr of an old movie projector. Ideally, I'd like to play it through my HD TV via DirecTv's Media Share. I can see the MKV and MP4 file. I can't open the MKV file. I can open the MP4 file but it only plays video and some whrrring audio. Can anyone help?
If I do get to play the MP4 file, what's the quality/resolution on my TV?
