I want to play videos, located on an USB disk which is connected via a powered USB hub, on my iPad(s). I converted these videos from .MKV to M4V (H264 codec) with HandBrake on Windows 7 using the universal setting. I installed MiniDLNA on the Raspbian (NOOBS) build. When I connect the Raspberry Pi (512) via the LAN; I am able to play the files correctly using ACE Player on the iPad (including language switching and build in subs). I can even play two different videos on two iPads at the same time. Trying to play the same video over Wifi (Raspberry Pi configured as an Access Point; iPad connecting to this AP), the video tries to load and then it doesn't play.
Trying an AVI-video based on FFMPEG works in both LAN and Wireless setups, but in this case I can only play one video at the time.
Is this an issue with the TCP stack for wireless, is it related to my WiFi dongle; or do I need to tweak/tune something?
I was hoping to use the configuration in the car; have the kids watch some videos when going on holiday. I have an iPad 1 and an iPad 3 to 'service'.
It seems to be working now.... In Ace Player on the iPad I configured to use QuickTime. When I switch that off, it plays the movies that it did not before! Will test some more and update.
