If I go into network media and open up my video file lists I can play movies just fine.
My a200 is playing movies just fine with eversion. Anyone know what going on?
common issue has to the due with the player path in Library.XML file
Here's how I recommend solving it.
Create a network share on the POPCORN HOUR pointing to some content.
For Example, let's say we create a share called "media". Doesn't matter where it points too, or if its SMB or NFS etc...
test using that share that you can browse to a file and actually play it successfully.
If not, get that working before messing with YAMJ.
Then in your library.xml file you have an entry like this....
Its mismatches in the sharenames and paths that cause this problem. Once you get the playerpath set correctly everything will work fine.
BTW: I also decided to get a replacement popbox since mine had a hardware problem clearly. I dont know why its causing the playback issue but lets hope the new one works. Getting a dune etc is going to be a pain for me because I am heavly invested in using ember and XBMC NFO files for metadata management across Boxee, XBCM, and YAMJ and none of the Dune jukeboxes do XBMC NFO files. They said they would ship it from CA so hopefully it might arrive this week.
