Has anyone have success getting a transcoding server like serviio to transcode to the touchpad via bhome?

for some reason I cannot get serviio to transcode due to the mp4 container format on the touchpad?

on the serviio forum it is a similar case for the iPad. http://forum.serviio.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3068

So anyone have a setup that works?

Try using playon for your server and kalemsoft on the touchpad. Playon has transcoded pretty much everything I've thrown at it, HD mkv included.

isn't playon a monthly fee? Serviio and twonky are free. If its free then game on.

It's free to serve your own media (you just have to install vlc as well and tell it where the installation directory is). The subscription is for the connected services like espn, hulu, Netflix, etc. It works for any dlna player.

I'll look into it thanks. I think I looked into it while ago and besides the pay part it didn't have a mac OSX client.

So, if you get play on set up, you only need point the touchpad browser to m.playon.TV. Since the touchpad plays flash very well, this works perfect. No dedicated player necessary.

playing through parallels was to slow and it had trouble finding my NAS drive. Anything else you recommend?

My playback is flawless. I looked for different solutions yesterday and this was the only one I got working. Luckily it works well.

If I run across anything I'll let you know.

Yeah, a virtualized environment is definitely not well suited to this. If you use bootcamp to properly load windows, I imagine it would work fine.
