How is it wired into the corp network? Its possible that they have the port blocked in the switch.

I'm not using Apache anymore. I'm working on a cross-platform solution and not everyone will want to (or be able to) run it on port 80 so I was trying to use an alternate port. On Un*x systems you have to be root to bind to a port below 1024, I'm not sure if the same is true on Windows or not. The p...

A number of us are working on local streaming solutions in the Dev. Forum.

No ETA yet, but yes you will eventually be able to stream from your desktop -- the caveat that the media needs to be in a format that the Roku can handle.

Yeah, I have all of that working. The problem seems to be that some (but not all) url's suport adding the port number. I moved everything over to port 80 and it works fine. The problem is that to run a server on port 80 (on unix any way) you need to be root -- or setup a firewall rule to redirect po...

Possible bug with hostname:port URL format

I'm finding some places where using http://hostname:port/ for referencing content isn't working. In other places it does. I need to track the usage back into the videoplayer app, but one such place is in the Category XML, like this: <category title="Brian" description="Brian's Favorit...

I think this is an essential feature. My family has about 400 in our instant Queue and it is becoming difficult to manage. What we need is support for multiple queue's within the same account. I expect that this will have to come from Netflix, since that is the easiest place to maintain it. What we ...

Why run a server for the client when you could just mount the share? Because you can't mount a share. :? The other problem is that there is a wide range of formats that people already have their media stored in, and it is stored on a wide range of devices and operating systems. Ideally what I want ...

Have you tried using the Makefile for installation instead? I don't use the web based installer at all myself.

Its almost impossible to tell for sure without more detailed debugging info from the player. But it may be related to the Baseline@3 vs. Main@5.1 in the mp4info description above (note: I have no idea what either of those mean). The parameters above are working fine for me, I've now watched Firefly ...

Several of us are working on home streaming solutions. But you aren't going to find one that streams from a file share. The Roku SDK requires a HTTP server that recognizes the Byte-Range header so you are going to need a server app of some kind. Also, the player is a bit picky about what formats it ...
