OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Unable To Play Files On NAS Drive From Within Smplayer Over Samba Shares Or Ftp?
May 21, 2011
I have mentioned this in another thread elsewhere but perhaps this is a better location. In Opensuse 11.3 I was able to play files on my NAS drive from within smplayer over samba shares or ftp. I would simply use dolphin to browse to the file on the nas drive (either through samba or ftp protocol), double click the .avi file and it would load smplayer and begin playing immediately.
In 11.4 I have samba set up using the same smb.conf file However, if I double click the .avi file it copies the entire contents to the local computer before launching smplayer. If I use smplayer's file selector and navigate to the file on the samba share I get the message "you can only select local files" This is a different behaviour to that from 11.3 However, using the ftp protocol from within dolphin smplayer launches immediately and begins playing. smplayer is launched using the shortcut command
Does anybody have any suggestions on a workaround or how to correct? Using kaffeine I have no problems. Double click the file on the nas drive and kaffeine launches immediately and begins playing.
I'm evaluating OpenSUSE and have installed 11.3 with Gnome (from the latest liveCD) and have it all running fine in a VM at the moment. We are looking at using it for an iSCSI/NFS/Samba server and have it allrunning and it is all configurable from Yast. However I can't seem to get Nautilus to play ball and allow sharing of Samba/NFS shares under folder properties (I'm fairly positive I've done this fine in Ubuntu). All I ever get is Usershare/Gnome sharing (which I believe is Webdav).
I must say I am so impressed with OpenSUSE, the partition manager is just a dream to use and everything works really well it would just be really nice to be able to share NFS/Samaba shares from the file manager. There doesn't seem to be any other file managers in the repositories so I'm a bit stuck now.
I've tried to search through this forum a couple of times to understand this problem, but no posts to date (that I've found) quite address it. Simply put, I am unable to get amarok to play mp3 files, which represent a large portion of my music collection.Every time I start the program, a window pops up advising me that amarok cannot play mp3 files, and it asks if I wish to install that support. Every time I click yes, it announces that the system has successfully done so, except that I might have to restart the program for the change to take effectEvery time I restart the program the same sequence happens. At no time does it ever play mp3 files.
I've tried to install every mp3 codec library I can find, none of this makes any difference.There was a time when amarok handled all this with absolutely no problem and behaved like a really good music manager, but that capability evidently was blown away by some software update that I probably wouldn't have run if I'd known what would happen.Does anyone know how to solve this? (Yes, I've tried using mmcheck. Does no good. This is openSUSE 11.3 for x86_64. Amarok Version 2.3.0 Using KDE 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 2"
I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).
In my older computer, with Linux Fedora 10, with SMPlayer I can play wmv, avi, flv and mp4 files. In my new computer, with Fedora 13, I cannot play flv files well. They are played with shadows and colour lines.
ready some 3gp files so had to install the w32codecs and mplayer version from the medibuntu repository. Now I can play back these files perfectly with mplayer from teh command line but when I open them with smplayer there is no video, just (choppy) sound. Xine also plays them back now although it didn't before. I know the first time I ran smplayer on this installation I had to choose which version of mplayer it was running with but don't know if I can do this again to tell it to use the installed medibuntu mplayer. I'm at a bit of a loss as to why the front-end smplayer would not simply play files with the exact same results as mplayer from the CLI. I haven't rebooted since,
Using smplayer from Packman in 11.3 - If I play a video (.avi, mp4...whatever) Use space bar to pause. Press to resume fails, but only if you have watched a fair bit or have moved on in the movie.Interestingly the pause symbol comes off as if play has resumed but it's not actually playing. You can press pause again and it shows it as if pausing again. Darn, this hard to explain.I switched to VLC and it's fine but I can't seem to get that to pick up where I left off (enqueue).ie; if you have the same experience I'd be interested to know.or you know the setting in vlc to resume a movie where you left off..
I need to play or preferably convert (i.e. to MP3) old SNG files, which contain voice records. From what I could find, it's basically a MIDI created by synthetiser. I think it was recorded by some ancient VLC player. I failed so far to play it on anything I could download.
For some reason, audio and video doesn't sync while playing MP4 video files. I have tried many MP4 files to confirm this is not specific file related issue. I have tried both VLC and Mplayer. Sound track doesn't sync with video track.
When I try playing any TTA files in Clementine, Rhythmbox or Movie Player all I hear is white noise. It plays normally in VLC and SMPlayer, but I want to be able to play TTA files in Clementine. I've been able to do so before I recently reinstalled Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer. I've tried installing ttaenc-3.4.1 from source, and nothing changed. I also tried installing ffmpeg-0.6.1 from source, but that didn't help either.
First off a little history of me lol. I'm not completely a Linux noobie, but I'm not the most advanced user either. With that said I have a few interesting problems with Samba.First off I can see the NetBios name under Windows Networking (Windows 7), however everytime I try to connect to it I get an Access Denied and/or "Incorrect Password/Username" error. I have gone into secpol.msc and changed the values that other posts have suggested. Both the server and the workstation are located under the same group, and I have used the smbpasswd -a <username>. The server is not configured to be a Primary Domain Controller so.. I'm lost. Infact my brain hurts from 3 days of this. I have posted my SMB.CONF file to see if that helps. Hum.. Maybe I'm just trying to access a file share that isn't there..
clean install of Slackware 13.1 64-bit. From day 1 I have been unable to browse Samba servers and shares on my home network. NFS, FTP, SSH, etc all seem to be working fine. I've been updating it regularly in case this was a bug, but I'm not so sure any more.
Reboot in WinXP sp3, I can browse fine. My wife's Win7 laptop works fine. My old Slack 12.2 system worked fine. I have not made any changes to the network other than adding this computer to the mix.

I recently updated my Squeeze installation to testing and since then I've been unable to use VDPAU with SMPlayer and MPLayer. When VDPAU is enabled every video file gives the same error (see log at the end; don't mind the extra channel entries, they're for converting AAC to AC3 on-the-fly). Before this everything worked as it should.
I have a hard drive which I put in an enclosure so that I can attach it by USB to my laptop, like a giant flash drive. In other words, its an external Hard Drive now. When I first plug it in it is detected and mounts like you would expect, but after a few minutes it unmounts. It's like the drive spins down and unmounts or something.
So, I want to remount it over my network rather than having to walk over to the computer and unplug the Hard Drive and then plug it back in. I would even be happy if I could just remote desktop onto that machine and remount the device somehow.
Here's the problem:
When the Hard Drive is mounted, and I run the "mount" command in terminal it shows up as:
/dev/sdc1 on /media/"NAME OF HARD DRIVE"
but when it unmounts itself and I run lsusb in terminal it only shows up as:
Bus 002 Device 053: ID 13fd:1840 Initio Corporation
I don't know how to get it to mount based on that name. So, I am asking: given that it shows up with that name, how can I remount the device from the command line...
The ultimate goal being to get it to reappear in my SAMBA shares.
After latest samba updates from updates-testing (F11) I can't copy any file from the network via samba: when copy process reaches almost end of the file, error message appears 'Invalid argument'. Such error happens with any read attempt on a network file - the last ~5% of a file can not be read.
on 10.04 I clicked to share my music folder with the network (other computer also having 10.04) and it installed samba for me. I restarted expecting to find sharing working as it had on the other computer by doing the exact same thing. But for some strange reason I can't access the shares on either computer through the network workgroup. It just says "Unable to Mount Location".
i have a ubuntu 10.10 desktop and laptop. i installed samba, and smbfs. i shared a folder on each computer. when i browse the network i can see the laptop from the laptop, and can see the desktop from the laptop, but i cant see the laptop from the desktop. when i try to mount the share it says unable to mount, but mounts it anyway...but, i need to be able to mount it so that rsync will see the shares as a dir on the desktop. i tried manually mounting via smbmount following several threads that i found, and i keep getting error sudo smbmount //192.168.1.78/share /media/laptop Password: Unable to find suitable address
that is as far as i've been able to get. i've looked and have only been able to find threads about windows shares, not between 2 ubuntu machines. and i dont know why laptop can see the desktop but not the other way around. they have identical smb.conf files
PDC SAMBA + OPEN LDAP (ubuntu 9.04) Linux (File Servers) + Windows machines all working well
I'm trying to set up a share drive on my new server using ubuntu 9.10 with samba (v 3.4) and ldapclient and the shares are not working when I defined Valid Users for share folders, that keep me ask me about my user and password, on the logs I have:
[global] workgroup = FLOWCONNECT server string = OSLO SAMBA FILE SERVER [code].....
I have the same set up on my File Server (Ubuntu 9.04) which use samba 3.3 is working fine.Someone know if has some different setting between samba 3.3 (ubuntu 9.04) and samba 3.4 (ubuntu 9.10) that could cause this problem ?
I am traveling to the UK next week, and whilst I am there, I need to be able to access my SAMBA shares hosted on my HOMESERVER, via my laptop in england.
I have tried Hamachi before, which works fine on windows, but the linux version is awful, and hardly works. So I need an alternative. I did a bit of googling, but I don't know what "bridged" means when I found a OpenVPN tutorial
I was wondering if anyone could give me some information as to what I'll need, and what I'll need to do on both my homeserver and my laptop?
