I have just configured my Drobo FS to be a uPnP server on which I have lots of 1080p MKVs.
My little boy loves his movies (Nemo / Cars / etc), so I was hoping to be able to let him watch them on the iPad streamed from the Drobo.
Am I dreaming the impossible dream here?
Or have I hit some hardware limitation of the iPad and/or the bandwidth limits of my wifi?
The files are mostly AVC for video and DTS for audio
Since I already had plex installed on my iPad (which I bought on iTunes) I re-enabled the software on my PC server and just pointed it to my Drobo movie share. I was really hoping to not have to transcode, but I guess that will have to wait until I've got faster wifi and a more capable tablet ;)
I was having a play this morning as I would quite like to watch some 720p TV shows I have (stored on my DroboFS) on my iPad2. But it seems I cannot even watch those. About the only things I can watch smoothly are SD AVIs (very low bitrate)
