Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I don't know how/if it's enforced, but apps are limited to 2 meg in size. For your cache problem, I thought about the idea of starting a slideshow with one huge jpeg that would take up most of the RAM. For what it's worth, even thought it's not mentioned in the docs, the photo viewer supports bitmap...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

If your goal is to only control the music being streamed to the Roku via some external control without interfacing with some client running on the Roku, I don't think there's much that can be done. Roku gives the client very little control over the audio player itself. Once the url(s) to the song(s)...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Gunslinger2,

I'm a little confused. On the Roku, can you navigate to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band song and get it to play?

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I made a couple of test files. It looks like WMP does not put the full path of the files only the relative path. They only go as far back as the artist's folder. I corrected it to add the full paths and they worked fine. If you want WMP to create an m3u file with full paths, load your songs/playlis...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Just a quick question, is there any chance of making a playlist/folder directory in the config dedicated specifically for playlist i.e. music_dir = x:\Music\ video_dir = x:\Movies Playlist _dir = x:\Playlist ....for organizational purposes & ease of selecting a playlist for things such as moods...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

The WMP m3u gives the file path as follows: The Noisettes\Wild Young Hearts (2009)\07 Atticus.mp3 aka artist\album\track I was saving them in my main music directory (on level with the artist's folders), but I was getting the no audio retrieved message. The org for my music is C:\Users\Me\Music\Art...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I noticed a couple of things I thought I would post: I have a video that I ripped for AppleTV that does play, but no sound. I'm going to try Handbrake settings others have mentioned in this thread. If anyone has any quick suggestions, though, I'd appreciate it. The other two videos I made (from my ...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Report on CacklingAvacado You guys are supremely awesome! Anyone care to help me out on the playlist problem? I'm making m3u files with WMP11, but roku tells me that there is no audio to retrieve. What should the filepaths to my mp3s look like? What does the m3u file look like? It's just a text fil...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

It's fun making up release names. Now, introducing CacklingAvocado ! This has real, actual, useful streaming radio support and a handful of presets to get you started. Thanks to renojim for his testing and troubleshooting last night that led to this working. Enjoy. This looks to be the same as Boda...

Bug in the Avocado

I just noticed I introduced a bug in the latest release with the "Play All" and "Shuffle All" posters. They work, but if you try to select a single song and play it, the client may crash. Sorry about that. I should have it fixed before the day is over.

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I'm certainly no expert on HandBrake, but I do have a little experience. I don't think the "--preset=Normal" is strictly necessary since it will be used if no other preset is specified. I would add two additional parameters: -O (or --optimize): "Optimize mp4 files for HTTP streaming&q...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

el.wubo started work on it before he left for vacation. You can find it here . I don't think it would be something I'd use, so I'd be interested in hearing/seeing what sort of links you're thinking of adding. Maybe I'm missing something. Usage note: Once you've installed the localClient version, go ...
