Is it possible to have both a webserver AND usb configured? It seems whenever I configure one, the other no longer shows up. I want ROKSBOX to be my one-stop shop!
The next upgrade to Roksbox is going to be the ability to stop and restart an audio file from where you left off (like you can do with videos).
What new feature(s) would you like to see Roksbox provide? Let me know what you think. I can't guarantee I can do them all, but I will do the ones that are possible and reasonable.
If you are using an XML file, you can display information about subcategories using xml or nfo files. The information files should be called poster.xml, or poster.nfo, and located in the images folder below your video root folder.
I am having trouble getting set up for this service. I installed Mongoose and reached the point of "test your web server by opening a web browser and entering http://localhost in the URL window" I then get a "Problem loading page" screen.
When I attempt to "Now find the ip address of your computer by opening a command window (start -> run -> cmd) and typing ipconfig. Your ip address will show up as IP Address", a dos black screen flashes open and then closes not allowing for me to determine the ip address. Since I was attempting to take this step by step I have not been able to go beyond this point yet.
What needs to be done to continue? Also, how do I uninstall Mongoose, if necessary, it does not show up in add/remove programs but does in the start menu.
Thank you in advance for any help you may lend.
According to the online documentation...
http://roksbox.com/home/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=123&Itemid=97If you are using an XML file, you can display information about subcategories using xml or nfo files. The information files should be called poster.xml, or poster.nfo, and located in the images folder below your video root folder.
The documentation goes on to explain that the directory structures under the 'images' folder should mimic the category structures in your main 'videos.xml' file, if you want to provide additional information/images for them.
Here's the thing: while Roksbox successfully finds my 'poster.jpg' image for a subcategory, it WON'T pick up an .xml file named 'poster.xml'. I have to give it a name that corresponds with the subcategory name instead (like 'Firefly.xml' for a [TV Shows/Firefly] category chain).
It's admittedly a minor thing, and a workaround exists, but either the documentation should be updated, or the code should be updated. I easily spent an hour pulling my hair out over it.
PS: While we're making a wishlist for the next version, I'd like to request the ability to describe subcategories in the main 'videos.xml' file, rather than having to create separate (and potentially redundant) XML/image files for them.
Also PS: Great app! Although I haven't pulled the trigger yet on purchasing it, it'll be a must-buy when the demo period is over. The streaming from my NAS is flawless.
I was able to find the ip address but when checking for the proper folder by entering the ip address in the browser "C:/www" did not show up but it did show a "parent directory" with nothing else on the list. The directory exists under My Computer C: drive in windows. What now?
