Hi,

DLNA guidelines say that a video should not be longer than 2^48 bytes, but apparently windows media player has a 2GB limit (2^31 -1 bytes).
Can you (or anybody else) confirm it?

cheers,
Omne

    Can't confirm it with latest wmp (Version 12) 64bit and 32bit on windows 7. Its playing a full-hd-mkv (5,4GB, 01:35:04 long) without problems (although the 32bit-version takes 3 times longer to load it than the 64bit-version)

     
  • Only WMP12 is a DLNA client. Previous versions were just DLNA servers.
    I then can assume that the problem is mine. "_"

    I do not have any problem of load speed, since I am working with a real time live streaming.
    I am working on a trunk of the minidlna server. It will distribute live TV contents coming from satellite/cable/terrstrial signals instead of hard drive content.
