I've recently signed up and installed Plex, specifically for watching .wtv files on the Surface RT tablet I just purchased. I've been using media streaming servers like Remote Potato, AirVideo and Qloud to stream our recorded files to different devices I've owned for ages, but Plex is the only one I can find for Windows 8.
All the files I've tried seem to stream ok to my Windows Phone 8 and the Plex desktop program on my laptop (running Win 8 Pro). So the server seems to be working ok. But only a small number of files will stream to Windows 8 plex (whether on my SurfaceRT, or on the same Win 8 laptop).
I have tried .wtv, .mpg and .avi files. None of the .mpg or .avi files I've tried have worked. The loading dots just cycle forever, and up the top it says "HTTP Live Streaming - Opening". I've managed to get a couple of .wtv files to play, but almost all load forever, and never play. This is all just over local network for now (remote connection should work once local does).
It's a very clean, attractive app! And would make my awesome Surface RT experience that much more complete, so would be great to sort it out.
Thanks for your help!
