Western Digitial released the WD TV Live Hub media center last week and we have spent some time using this Full-HD 1080p media player that has a 1TB built-in network hard drive. This media player lets you stream HD video, music and photos from the on-board drive to any DLNA/UPnP-compatible TV or multimedia device in your home or office. This media player might just be the most robust on the market today! Read on to see what we think!
We really had no limitations to the types of files we tested with the WD TV Live Hub. We loaded a USB hard drive with all sorts of media files (AVI, ISO, M2TS, MKV, MOV, MP4, MPG, TS, VOB, WMV, MP3, FLAC, OGG) and the Live Hub was able to play each one quickly with no problems whatsoever. Many people are not only concerned with how HD MKVs and WMVs play, but if Blu-ray ISOs work. I’m happy to report that the Live Hub’s functionality is consistent with the WD TV Live Plus playing the BD ISO files with no problem, but unfortunately, we still don’t get BD ISO Menu support. The Western Digital WD TV Live Hub plays almost every kind of multimedia file available and acts as a network attached storage device as well as media server to anyone on your local network. This media player is by far the best Western Digital has produced and we consider this the best player on the market today.
