Ok. So I am crawling towards the finish line
Looks like the absolute path I was setting was incorrect. Had not included username and password
Now I see another issue. Sigh!
So my Zappiti index is located on a SSD inside the Dune. While the movies are on my NAS.
It looks like at some point the smb connection closes between the NAS and the dune (when not accessed for a while).
After this period of inactivity, when I click on a movie, i get the "failed to open url" message. But if I click on it again after a few seconds, it opens just fine
Sometimes I dont even see the error message. Just a long pause and the movie starts off
I think the first time when I try to access the movie after a period of inactivity, the dune probably tries to establish the smb connection.
I see the "connecting" message if I navigate thru the network browser
One way to work around this issue, navigate via network browser first to the share and then go to zappiti. But that is silly Edited by bytebuster - 10/10/12 at 8:50am
