Cause of and solution to rebuffering problem

If you're one of the people that's noticed that after a video plays for an hour or so you start to get rebuffering that happens more and more frequently as time goes on, I think I'm on to something. For me at least, it doesn't happen with all videos. What I noticed with the videos it does happen on ...

Me too, and I doubt you could find anyone who would consider me compute illiterate. :D

Re: Side poster art

el.wubo, I changed the "screen.SetListStyle" from flat-episodic to flat-category and the side poster art now displays. Very cool. I hadn't tested that layout. I like it a lot better than flat-episodic. I've changed it to be the default. Thanks renojim. Have you tried the arced-square type...

Yep, I have two mp3's in there now and they both play.

Side poster art

el.wubo,

I'm trying to figure out how all of this stuff works so I can contribute. As a first little test that I can change something and update the client properly, I changed the "screen.SetListStyle" from flat-episodic to flat-category and the side poster art now displays.

Re: My Music-Stream your local media collection to your Roku DVP

This does not play: K:\Media Files\Grateful Dead\Live Dead Shows\1972\Grateful Dead Live Amsterdam Concertgebouw 5.10.72\gd72-05-10d1t01_vbr.mp3 With the exception of the drive letter, I recreated that path exactly and it plays for me. Of course I have a different mp3 with that name, but that shoul...

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...
