Connecting media devices (connectivity options).

1. Computer - Media device.
For the connection you must use the cross cable: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_crossover_cable

2. Computer - Switch - Media device.
To connect devices to use direct cables. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_over_twisted_pair

3. Computer - Router - Media device.
To connect devices to use direct cables. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_over_twisted_pair

Work settings media server does not depend on the version of the connection. If you use a router it is more convenient to include automatic destination ip-address of the device, the details of the settings in the user manual of the router. When using options 1 and 2 connect ip-addresses are typically assigned manually, the address must be different in the latter part of the ip-address, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, default gateway, - ip-address of the computer, if necessary, set the address of DNS-servers, you can specify the address of the computer. Example: computer address 192.168.1.10, the address media device 192.168.1.11.

Search server into a media device.
Search is performed according to the user manual media device.
If the server is not found, and everything is connected properly, the setup program (chapter Server) to verify that the list of authorized client devices is empty or ip-address of the device is present in the list of allowed devices. If you use a program of network security (firewall), check its rules for the module wms.exe (wmssvc.exe, if the server runs as a Windows service). If the program of network security have learning (training) mode, then turn it on. Restart "Wild Media Server (UPnP, DLNA, HTTP)" after changing settings program of network security. If you are using other media servers, perhaps at the stage setup they should be shutdown.
If the server is found, but there is no possibility to open a media device. Program Settings "Wild Media Server (UPnP, DLNA, HTTP)", which can help solve this problem, in the section Device: mode "DLNA 1.0", "DLNA 1.5", "service authorization", "National names base folders", in the Server chapter, set permanent server port (from 1024 to 65535).

Navigation on the basis of media resources for media device.
If the device supports the National language, then in setting up the program (chapter Device) can turn on the "National names base folders", it affects the names of the main folder base media resources. If the national language media device is not supported mode encoding of National names to choose Translit mode "National names of the main folders" enabled / disabled by the user (if off, then the English names will be the main folder of media resources).
Folder names can be changed in the main form of the program on the right-button mouse - click the "Edit title".
Unnecessary folders media resources can be removed in the main form programs on right click "mouse" - "Delete folder" or can be turned on "Exclude empty folders in navigation" in Device chapter.
Slow navigation on the basis of media resources may be associated with the peculiarities of the media device, the inclusion of the mode "Exclude empty folders in navigation", the presence of slow removable media in the system, frequent changes in the media directory of resources and switched on automatically scan directories when they change while the server. Mode "Exclude empty folders in navigation" can be turned off, the folder "Removable media "can be removed in all sections of the media resources (Movies, Music, Photo).
Browse the catalogs of media resources in the structure of their storage on disk can be accomplished through the folder "Watch Folders" (National language is off).
If some media resources are not visible on the media device, but are present in the main form of the program, it may be due to the transmitted server mime-type for this media resource. Mime-type can be changed in program settings - Settings button - "Media Resources" - "File Types" - select the file extension - the Edit button.

Watching movies.

The server can send movies to the media device in their original form or through transcoding (converting the movie into a format supported by the media device). Film automatically transcoded, if the file extension is not included in the list of supported or selected for the film profile transcoding. Configuring the supported media device file extensions movies - button Settings - chapter "Device" - "Embedded file support" - Movies. List of file extensions is formed to guide the user's media device, or information on site manufacturer of media devices. If the film is reproduced in its original form, then select your audio and movie file included in the subtitle is possible only if support for this choice of media device. When you select the movie through the folder Transcoding is possible to choose the audio track, internal and external subtitles, sound delay, transcoding profile to convert the movie.

Profile transcoding - the script (macro), which forms the parameters of the call program or performs transcoding transcoding using DirectShow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DirectShow). Editing profiles transcoding - button Settings - chapter "Transcoder" - button "Profiles".
Profile in use transcoding can be selected:
- For all movies: button Settings - chapter "Transcoder" - "Transcoding file params" - Movies - "Profile transcoding;
- For a certain type of movie files (extensions) - button Settings - chapter "Media Resources" - button "File Types" - select the file extension - Edit button - "Transcoding profile";
- For a specific film: a list of films program's main form on the right-button "mouse" - "Transcoding profile" or through the navigation of media devices, if the choice of film running through a folder in a folder Transcoding settings generated by the server for each movie.

If the movies media devices are usually stretch the video to full screen, so to keep aspect ratio movie server generates the parameters of the original frame size add color to the frame size specified in the configuration. Customize transcoded frame size and color complement configured the program - button Settings - chapter "Transcoder" - page "Codecs, frame" - "Frame size". Supplement color is not supported by all programs, transcoder, so when choosing profile transcoding, other than the primary, it may not be.

If you select the film for viewing media device reported an error, you may be following reasons for their occurrence:
- Select the original movie file, which format, encoding video or audio is not supported by the media device, a possible solution to the problem - select the movie through the folder Transcoding;
- Select movie via folder Transcoding, which encode video or audio is not supported, transcoder, a possible solution to the problem - choose to film another profile transcoding, problems with the audio track can also be solved by installing a setup program (section Transcoder - page "Codecs , frame) the number of channels - 2;
- Media device or a server located in an unmanaged state: to restart the device or media server.

If you select the movie through the folder Transcoding, show begins, but after some time stops or slows down:
- Cessation of view may occur: due to lack of disk space used to store temporary files that exceed the file size supported by the device exceeds the maximum size of the transcoded file specified in the setup program (chapter Transcoder - "Transcoding file params - Maximum size) .
- Transcoding speed film is insufficient for viewing, you can check this in the main form of the program: to execute the test transcoding on right click "mouse" in the list of films - the speed of transcoding (parameter fps) must be greater than the frame rate the movie. If the setup program (section Transcoder) enabled "Show panel transcoding", the speed of transcoding can be found in it after selecting the movie to media ustroystve.Takzhe can include speed indicator transcoding (chapter Transcoder - Subtitles indicator rate), with transcoding speed is less than specified in the configuration program values, the current speed of transcoding will be displayed on the film frame to the specified location of the frame.
Possible solution:
- Select to view profile transcoding, with a smaller frame size, video quality;
- If the encoding of the video track is supported by the media device, but does not support the file format of the film, you can choose the profile transcoding converts the file format of the film and leave unchanged the video track (transcoding profiles "Movies - TsMuxer" - the formation of m2ts-files, Movies - WMF "- the formation of wmv-files). Profile transcoding "Movies - TsMuxer" must additionally download Transcoder TsMuxer to the home page (to set up profiles transcoding);
- Stop watch a movie on the media device for the formation ample for viewing of transcoded movie file;
- Specify to store temporary transcoded files, disk other than your system to store the swap file;
- To optimize the system as a whole - to check disk fragmentation, the list of autoloading programs.

Watching movies stored in DVD (files with the extension vob).
- The program supports the association vob-files when transcoding, selection of film through the folder Transcoding - Watch folders."
