File types

Post by bruce13557 » Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:06 am

I am a newbie so please forgive some obvious questions.
All my previously recorded tv files are windows media centre files. What is the file type that myth tv can read. Also I need to know what music files it will read and what video files it will read.

MythTV's internal player is based on FFmpeg and pretty much supports playing the file types FFmpeg supports, so you should not have too many problems playing files from a Windows environment. I guess you could always do a test installation of MythTV (e.g. on a USB drive) and chuck some of your most exotic file formats at it to see if they play ok.
