Cant play .img or .iso file located on NAS (solved)


I got some old .img and .iso files located on my Synology NAS.

I did add a video source using a ftp-protocol on my Rasp Pi 2

It will play the sound smooth, but the video not…

How to optimize the playback?

You would need to purchase the MPEG2 codec from Raspberry

is it so simple…

Probably. What is the video type of the file? You can use something like mediainfo to analyse it and it’ll tell you what it is.

They are iso so I assume DVD rips = MPEG2

ahh, used the videostation on my NAS and it says: mpeg2video

I will try that codec…

I now did get the mpeg2 code.

De place it in the config.txt and rebooted the rasp pi.

And now it works - thanks!!
