Dear forum Moderator
Please forgive me for posting this in the HP Touchpad forum as well. I have also posted it in the App section, but maybe this is a system related "problem"? If not, then just freeze/delete/close (or what ever) this thread and I will try to behave myself!!! :-)
I'm using my TP a lot for watching movies and most of my movies are in the .avi format.
I use KalemSoft Media Player and that works very well.
At home I have a Synology NAS also with a lot of avi-movies. When I want to watch one of those movies I'd like to use either BHome or UPnP AV Player (Free).
However when trying (with the same file) I always get this message in
This file type is unsupported in webOS.
It's most likely that it can not be used.
UPnP AV Player Free:
Sorry, the avi video type is currently not supported by webOS.
The supported video types in webOS are MP4, M4A, M4V, MOV, 3GP and 3G2.
I have tried copying the same movie to the TP and it works well in Kalem.
Is there anything I can do to make streaming from my NAS working on my TP?
I live in Denmark, so I can't buy any software from the catalog, but IF there is an app that can do the magic, I maybe can buy it directly from the developer?
