... at some point in the last two-three weeks. I have a WD TV Live Streaming Media Player.

I as far as I remember, I have answered OK/yes to firmware upgrades one or two times in the timespan. I am now running version 1.09.10.

I choose Videos, browse to the file and press OK to play. The player identifies the length of the video but doesn't play it - all I get is a black screen. The player doesn't freeze - I'm able to return using the Back button.

Example video that doesn't play anymore:

I have downloaded it using youtube-dl:

My WD TV Live accesses the file through Samba/Windows File Sharing.

Is WD reading the bug reports in this forum or should I also report this at a more official site?

Thanks in advance to anybody who cares :-)
