Why would you think it can play .mkv files?

I don't own this model, but I have had similar DVD players with USB connections. Hopefully this information is useful to someone, and relevant to this product.

The USB drive attached had to be FAT32 formatted. I had no problems reading a 160gb drive, but my 500gb drive wouldn't work. Not sure if this a size issue or just my 500gb drive was not supported.

Playing MKV files was not supported, but there is a work around. You can convert MKV to MP4 using MKV2VOB. Then as long as the file size is less than 4gb it will go onto a FAT32 formatted drive.

Most AVI files played without a problem, but some just would not work. I used DIVX Converter (free with DIVX Player) to re-encode them from AVI to AVI, and then they were playable.


I got fed up with all the converting and bought a PS3. Using PS3MediaServer on my main PC and I can now stream most formats (including MKV) to the PS3 without problems. The PS3 doen't care what format the drive is on the PC (NTFS, FAT32 etc), as PS3 Media Server reads the drive not the PS3 directly. Obviously the PS3 is not cheap, but it saved me a load of hassle.


Anyway, good price for an upscaling DVD player with USB & HDMI, so heat added.

From reading the eBuyer reviews and forum I think I can summarise as:-

[INDENT]It arrives as region 2 but can be easily changed to be multi-region

It does not support NTFS, .mkv or MP4

There are issues with playback on some .avi files; some reported issues with sound; but most users seem to be able to play most .avi or DivX.

USB drives must be FAT or FAT32.

One user complained their USB powered drive would not run on this; while others appear to be using USB powered drives OK - you may need a separate power supply.

It's cheap tat that works very well most the time for most users. [/INDENT]

I got one of these a couple of weeks ago when they were £19.99 delivered. It is a good unit and would be ideal for a second room. It is about half the size of a typical DVD player and the quality is okay apart from the Toys R Us remote! Voted hot!

i got mine for 20£ two weeks ago. still havent tested it yet

hurr hurr hurr lol troll

the PS3 is in a different league to this two bit player.

there is no doubt a PS3 would offer a more seamless multimedia experience.

but at this price point with USB playback it really can't be beat since it works for the majority of users, most of the time.

ps3 = more power needed, more money not everyone can afford a ps3 only the lucky few ( xbox does the same thing and u can stream it across ur network)
#13
Isn't comparing this to a PS3 massively redundant? The PS3 is ten times the price of this.

Has anyone got this device? Can you confirm the comments made earlier that it won't support mkv via USB? If so, that's a real shame.

I'd like to know as well. Cheapest option is £4.79.
#15
The PS3 comparison is pretty weird IMO as well, better off comparing it to one of the many dedicated streamers, WDTV etc...

Note that eBuyer also sell on eBay, where the price is the same, but they use Royal Mail std parcels for £3.22, which is also useful if you live in Norn Iron.

Ordered two. Got free delivery (with an England flag @ 20p!).

These things are a nightmare!
Just bought 2 of these for the kids' rooms to go with their crappy tesco UMC LCD's (of which the built in DVD players have long since broken) and when I press various buttons on the remotes it randomly changes the TV back on to Freeview from DVD. Very very annoying. This makes it almost impossible to access menus and the USB without repeatedly having to change the TV back to DVD using the TV remote.
Me thinks you get what you pay for.
#21
Anyone else get this problem?
My England flag was ok for 20p tho!

Not me, but I only used both units for a very short time.

However, I did find the remote was too small and of poor quality.
