I can see from the forums that people regularly have issues with unsupported file types when trying to stream to their PS3s with ReadyDLNA on the ReadyNAS, however, the problem I'm experiencing is a bit different.
I have found that all my video files will play on the PS3, however, some of them will only work after a complete rescan. For example, when I add a new video file to one of the appropriate folders, I can then see it through the media server menus in the PS3. However, occasionally, a newly added file (e.g. an xvid) will show up but when I try to play it I get the message "this data type is not supported".
If I carry out a full rescan of the folders through frontview I find that the file will play perfectly well the next time I try it!
If I try to play the file in something like xbmc through upnp it works fine so presumably it is something PS3 specific, although the fact that a rescan helps suggests there is some sort of parameter that the PS3 is interested in that isn't being reported correctly when first scanned that other DLNA players are less pernickety about....?
I recently bought twonky media server thinking this might not have the issue (it didn't appear to whilst I trialled it) but I've started to occasionally get it with that too now.
1) if anyone else experiences this problem
2) Is there any way to prevent this happening in the first place
3) if there is a way to force one particular file to be rescanned in the library (as it takes ages to fully rescan)
