Sharing Media Videos via DLNA-Connect the Converted HD Videos MP4 to Droid X via...


DLNA for HD Videos Streaming:Camcorder Videos to Droid X with Compatible Format <br />Droid X DLNA-Stream Camcorder HD Videos from Windows 7 PC to Droid X,WD TV Live Hub via DLNA <br /><br />I have recently setup DLNA between my Windows 7 PC and Droid X, and my other home devices like WD TV Live Hub. With HDMI cable connected between WD TV Live Hub to my HDTV, I can stream most of my videos from Windows 7 PC and watch on HDTV. But Droid X does not read the .mts files that I transferred to PC from my Sony Handycam CX700. <br /><br />Actually, there are DLNA-certified cameras, which might be easily connected to Droid X via WiFi. But my camcorder is the non-DLNA compliant Sony CX700, thus I need to store the .mts files on Windows 7 PC. The mts videos play well via <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">DLNA streaming from PC to WD TV Live Hub with HDTV</a></b>. I was recommended to convert the camcorder videos in .mts to .mp4 for streaming to Droid X with Aunsoft Final Mate. <br /><br />Aunsoft Final Mate works great for the CX700 videos. I just need to import videos to Final Mate, create a movie for conversion from the File menu (File &gt; Create A Movie For Conversion), bring the clips to Movies tab. Click the Export button under the volume settings, and choose Droid X output profile to start conversion. You can also <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Free Download Final Mate</a></b> with the trial version, and give it a try. <br /> <br />For those who may have problem <b>Setting up <a href="http://1080p-converter.com/2011/07/sharing-media-videos-via-dlna-connect-the-converted-hd-videos-mp4-to-droid-x-via-dlna/">DLNA Video Streaming</a></b>, here I would like to give you the fast guide with my Windows 7 PC, WD TV Live Hub and Droid X. <br /><br />1. Windows 7 PC is DLNA-compliant, and I just need to activate two services: SSDP Discovery and Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. <br /><br />2. Make sure the devices are in the same network, and put the video files to the video folder on Windows 7 for sharing. <br /><br />3. WD TV Live Hub and Motorola Droid X are also DLNA-compliant. There is built-in DLNA application on Droid X, and is available in the Application tray. Just run DLNA to control or play videos on Droid X. <br /><br />Below is the DLNA application on Droid X: <br /> <br />Turn on WiFi, and you will face the following screen for playing media, copying media to server, copying media to phone, or share media. <br /> <br />To stream and play the MP4 files converted from AVCHD files by Final Mate, just choose Play media, and Droid X will ask you to choose source, choose player, and start streaming. <br /><br />With Final Mate, you can easily stream <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/07/droid-x-dlna-stream-camcorder-hd-videos-from-windows-7-pc-to-droid-xwd-tv-live-hub-via-dlna/">Camcorder Videos to Droid X with DLNA Compatible Format</a></b>.

HELP!! :smileysad: i have WD ELEMENTS 500 GB. Its working properly when i first bought it until today. im on my desktop clicked a folder then It HANGED then i restarted it then im opening that folder...


Hi,
Have you tried to connect the WD drive to a different Laptop or PC? Normally, in my experience, barring any serious error with the drive, connecting to different laptop would allow you to view the drive again. What happen was the drive was reading the folder when you restarted the PC. The best action then was to leave the pc to finish reading the files.

You probably have a disk-drive with some "bad" sectors.
So, when you try to read the sectors that contain the directory for the 'My Music' folder,
that sector cannot be read, and thus Windows reports an "empty" folder.

It's probable that your disk-drive is about to _completely_ fail, not just _partially_.
Make a backup of what files & folders that _can_ be read.
