    Hi there,

    thank you very much for that great streaming server. The only thing I am missing is support for m2ts files. Is there any chance to get them supported?

    Thank you very much in advance,
    luckger

    Hi,

    m2ts files are supported.  See the request for AVCHD support here: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2881371&group_id=243163&atid=1121519

    If you have a Sony TV there seems to be a discrepancy between what's set in the miniDLNA database and what's accepted by the TV.  I have to manually edit the miniDLNA database with an SQL command to get the TV to see the files.
    The Sony TVs also only support a very limited set of H264 levels and profiles and also a limited set of audio formats to go with the video.
    I posted my steps to success in a few places, one of which was the Ubuntu forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9089616&postcount=95

    Regards,
    Craig
