Re: Re:

Personally I would rather have different base folders as my different media types are on different drives on my file server. If you're on a Windows machine, you can use a juction ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896768.aspx ) to span drives. For example, in your Music folder you ...

jpeg support

el.wubo, On the subject of jpeg support, I think you hit the nail on the head with two good ideas. The ability to just automatically cycle through all the jpegs in a directory, repeatedly even, while playing music would be a great feature. At the same time, being able to manually cycle through photo...

This is great! Not only did the davethomas video play fine, it's handled everything I've thrown at it including the first half of the Broncos/Ravens game - a 2GB, 5MB/sec, 54 minute video. It has rebuffered a couple of times, but that probably has more to do with my wireless network than anything. I...

el.wubo,

You are the man! I'm "watching" the davethomas video now. I want to make sure it gets through the whole hour and I'll post back.

Thanks again!

renojim: You're right. It is trying to read the whole file. Good catch. I'll fix that tonight. Thank you. Wow! I'm right? That's great news! I was afraid it was something unique to my configuration and we'd never figure it out. You wouldn't believe what I've been through trying to figure out what's...

I'm thinking my large file problem is a server problem. When I select a large video, I get the "retrieving" screen, but no data ever gets sent to the Roku player beyond the file name, length, etc. Meanwhile, on the server the disk access light is on constantly as if it's trying to read the...

Ok, I'm starting to feel like a fool. :oops: I got the client code from the "Download Source" button on the github site that leads to a zip file "netguy204-roku_media_server-9df271b.zip". If I compare the client code in that zip to a direct download from the other links, it's com...

Large video files

el.wubo and umbighouse, Thanks for the explanation and verification that it should work, but I'm not getting anywhere. The information about the metadata makes sense, but I've tried all of the following without any luck: FormatFactory HandBrakeCLI with default settings HandBrakeCLI with default sett...

Let me first say, Great job and thanks! I've been playing with the new video additions and there seems to be an issue with large files. I haven't been able to figure out exactly what the file size limitation is, but it seems as though files over 64MB (2^26) have problems. However, to complicate thin...
