Hi,
I just installed XBMC and connected to my UPnP / DLNA server.
It seems to only play MP3 files. Other formats don't play.
I suppose that there is a problem with the codecs. Or ??
Running on Win7 Pro

xbmc plays almost all media file formats without need for external codecs, cause it uses ffmpeg.

I'd guess its your mediaserver trying to transcode the files. Try "no transcode" option.
An even better proof would be to copy a few files directly to the xbmc machine and try to play them locally. this should absolutely work.

Yes this is true. The files do play locally.

The media server offers several versions of the file: original native format, transcoded pcm and transcoded mp3. And XBMC is choosing the pcm version to download. However, it encounters problems actually playing that pcm file. Below is an excerpt from the log file...
