i-Can Freeview As MKV player


Standard Member
Hi All
Can I-Can HD freeview be used as MKV player?(which file types if any are supported (mp4,avi,wmv wtc))

I usually use portable hard drive with all my movies/TV series and play using a player such as sumvision or xtreamer (no streaming just play thru USB port)

in addition , will subtitles (.srt in particular ) will be supported ?

Many thanks in advance

I don't think this box can currently access media files via the network or USB. Only the iPlayer application can access media (obviously limited to BBC shows) and the USB is only used for firmware updates.
