View Full Version : Panasonic Viera V Series

09-04-2010, 08:38 PM

I am excited to test out my new Panasonic TV and Mezzmo. I have a Panasonic TH-P50V20a using the Wireless N dongle.

First, and I apologize for the n00b question, I have a huge (well structured) iTunes library of music and video. Can I play my:

Purchased AAC audio files
Protected AAC audio files
Protected MPEG-4 video files, and
MPEG-4 video files?

I haven't been able to get anything but .MP3 and my own recorded .MOV, .AVI, .MP4 and .MPG files working.

I set the detected media device for the Panasonic to use Wireless N (600 Mbps) and profile Panasonic Viera.

Secondly, the default album artwork for the MP3's are always small in size, and look ridiculous on the TV as a fullscreen artwork item. Can I customize or choose different layout options, preferably a small album cover in the corner with perhaps some sort of Visualizer similar to what iTunes and Windows Media Player does?

Cheers. Really hoping something like this can work, was hoping I might be able to rent iTunes movies and stream to the TV.

As far as I know, streaming any DRM protected file is impossible, since the TV lacks the capability to decode the DRM encryption.

The only way that I know to stream DRM protected videos in iTunes is to stream to an AppleTV.

I hate DRM :(

Agree with RMerlin. Mezzmo will be able to stream your DRM-protected files, but if your TV cannot play your DRM-protected files, then Mezzmo cannot help & you will not be able to watch/listen to them on your Viera. Mezzmo cannot transcode DRM-protected files.

With regards your non-DRM files, Mezzmo should stream/transcode them fine for your Viera.
