This is a discussion on Please help, how can I stream video files from my computer to Sony NSZ-GT1 using a PC within the Sony Blu-Ray Set Top Box forums, part of the Google TV Set-Top Boxes category; Originally Posted by atandon Note though that MP4 formats do NOT support DTS. .ts may be a better option Though to be honest I have ...
There is a wikipedia page that compares all the containers. Can't post the link because of my post count
it looks like DTS is not supported with mp4 containers
Need to investigate this a little more
Doom9's Forums, "How to mux AC3/DTS streams in mp4". The main purpose of a container is to specify how multiple streams are interleaved. This provides a linear time line between them which is one of preventative measures against desynchronization. The minor differences about the individual container formats is how they store the meta data.
I suspect this is the link you were referring to Comparison of container formats - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Apparently, I'm wrong about about "ANY" type of stream according to that article. However, as I explained earlier, it does support DTS/AC3.
GTVBox player supports windows shares directly, plays most file, avi, mpg, mp4 mkv the blue ray box nsz-gt1 does DTS and using GTVBox player you can evenslect the second audio track if you have that need. WORKS GREAT!
By any chance do any of you have links to the UI for this player?
Are you able to display artwork (or at least thumbnails at a minimum) for your video files. If yes then I am ordering this today
EDIT: Never mind. I saw some videos online with users able to display thumbnails. Nsz-gt1, here I come

Use the Plex app. Works great on Sony Google tv for me.
I disabled it last night though, because the main reason for setting it up was to be able to stream Hulu (and maybe someday Vudu), but alas, no matter what I try I just can't get the Hulu plugin to come up in the GTV client app... if anyone has any tips I'll be glad to hear it (plugin doesn't show up in the "more" section, even with compatibility filtering turned off). #HELP!
Aside from that tho, it's awesome, but then I discovered the stock media player, plays all the same files... (yeh I know backwards discovery), so for now I'm switching off Plex. No sense having the server take up cycles on my machine if I'm not gonna be using it.
Sorry, did some reading and discovered that my particular problem is related to the fact that I am using the Windows version of the media server. It doesn't support the Hulu plugin.
Next up: PlayOn
All Sony Google TV's are DLNA certified for photos only. As for sharing via pc's a blue tooth adapter but am not sure.
