Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

I have been using Roksbox for a number of years.  About a year ago I started using the photos feature by creating an xml file that met the published requirements.  All of this worked fine until a few months ago.  I can view categories that include up to 100 pictures, but any more than that and RoksBox crashes.

At about the same time the video search function stopped working.  Starting a search causes RoksBox to crash.

Does anyone know if there is any software support for this channel???

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

My installation of Roksbox for DropBox works flawlessly for videos but the photos are intermittent.  All of the folders and sub-folders show.  However, not all of the sub-folders will play a slideshow.  some will and some will not, they just stay in the "...Working..." state for ever.  I have reviewed everything even set up a new folder with only reduced size photos; does not seem to be the issue as the folder with smaller photos did not work, while other folders with the original large file photos did.  Any ideas?

The APP does not crash and I can navigate back to the folders and even the main menu.

What is the proper way to get Roksbox xStream to work with Google Drive?

The online help says to follow the on-screen instructions but the on-screen instructions say to go to http://www.roksbox.com/google and when I do that I get a 404 error. I have double- and triple-checked what I typed and have even tried  upper or mixed case and "gd" or "googledrive" instead of "google," but still haven't been able to authorize Roksbox xStream for Google Drive.

The authorization for Dropbox works. Why not Google Drive? What must I do (and what is a working URL) to get this working?

Thanks.

This may be a content creation issue. If you are familiar with FFmpeg I suggest the method below from my video blog. If you are not familiar with FFmpeg then please follow the best practices mentioned in the article.
