That's the filename, and it was just an example. Most all the files are .mp4, there may be a few .avi or .mkv, but I would expect roksbox to not be able to play them... not crash to home whenever the folder is opened.
Is the fact that some files are .avi or .mkv causing the crash to home?
Yes, I understand which file formats are supported and which are not. I don't think that's the problem, unless Roku not only cannot play non-mp4 files, but crashes whenever it sees them. Is that the case?
None of my folder names have periods in them. The example I used was a full file path, /var/www/roksboxmedia/Videos/TV/Show/Season/ is the path name, Episode.avi was just placeholder name. I should have written Episode.mp4 to go along with the format that Roku requires, but i didn't think it mattered, since it's just an example to illustrate how I have my directory tree set up.

My problem is that whenever I traverse into a directory with episodes in it, it crashes to the Home screen. Doesn't matter if they're all .mp4 or a mix, it always crashes to Home.
I'm not using a video.xml file, I'm using a Videos directory.
I have a suggestion for an enhancement to Roksbox. Would it be possible to add a 'Delete' choice to the menu where you get the Play and Resume options? The reason I ask is that in addition to playing back my movies, I'm also using Roksbox as a DVR front-end. I'm recording TV shows with Windows Media Center and then using MCEBuddy to remove the commercials, convert them to .mp4 and store them in one of my Roksbox folders. That way I can watch them on any TV with a Roku.
If this were possible, it would be nice to have a verification message come up before deleting a file. Ideally, what I would like to see is someway to have a configuration file where we could list the folder(s) that we wanted the delete option on. That way it wouldn't even come up on the majority of our folders, only the ones where we had temporary videos that could be deleted.
Thanks as always for your great product!
I have been using handbrake to rip my dvd so I can use them with Roksbox without a problem. I just got a blu ray drive and want to start to rip some of my blu-rays. Handbrake doesn't reconize the blu-rays like it does DVD's that use the BDMV structure. What other options besides handbrake that I can use to rip blu-rays.
