Has anyone heard from any of the various multimedia sites if a company such as Asus or Western Digital or other is planning on introducing a powerful media player which can handle mpeg-4 and m2ts files of videos from cameras such as the Sony CyberShot HX100V (which I own) or the 200V or the Panasonic FZ150, both of which can produce such videos at a very high bit-rate (around 25-28Mbps)?
Right now, the only way I can play the movies I produce using Sony Vegas Movie Studio, using M2TS files as the source videos, then adding a voice (narration) track plus a music track, and which are MP4 format in 1920x1080p60 (60 fps progressive) is by connecting my laptop to my HD TV.
By the way, streaming does NOT work from my desktop PC, because the TV is not DLNA and other devices like my XBOX360 or Sony BDP-S580 blu-ray player cannot handle this. After about 60 seconds of play via streaming using Windows Media Center, the video starts pausing and freezing. And chances are that even if the TV was DLNA (capable of receiving a wireless connection video stream from my PC), it would also fail since it would need a powerful CPU in the TVs DLNA server component to play such large files or videos with lots of information in them.
Just wondering… These cameras which can do 60p video at full hd are starting to become more and more common so I figured a company would start introducing ways to play them properly.
