WMC doesn't see converted files

Apr 14, 2014 at 5:41 PM
New user (still), hope I'm not asking the obvious...

I converted a recording from /cygdrive/d/Recorded TV/Salinger- American Masters_KPBSDT_2014_01_26_23_58_00.wtv to /cygdrive/d/Recorded TV/Salinger- American Masters_KPBSDT_2014_01_26_23_58_00.mp4 and deleted the 'wtv.'

What do I have to do to get WMC to show the MP4 in the 'recorded tv 'folder' so WMC can play it?

Search the forum. WMC can only show ETV files in Recorded TV section

(I'm assuming ETV s/b WTV.)

When you say 'forum' to you mean this 'Discussions' section?

So if I want to retain the original WMC user experience, I can't encode to MP4?

yes typo WTV (not ETV) and forum is discussions.

No, MP4 will only show up in movies or videos section.
