I am having an issue with registering MyMedia. I go to the MyMedia Chanel and it tells me to go to the website and enter the activation code provided. I do this and my Roku just sits there. I am assuming that something is meant to happen after I register. If I try to hit Cancel it wont do anything either, so I end up having to reset my Roku.
Any ideas what would cause this?
regid = xxxxwhere 'xxxx' is the four character code displayed on your TV. Then restart the sever and it should print out "submitting 'http://192.168.1.102:8001' to rendezvous server as xxxx". The channel and the server should sync up at that point.
You can only play MKV files from a USB device. They (Roku) have said that streaming MKV support will be added, but haven't given any kind of time estimate. I'm not real familiar with MKVs, but I believe it's fairly easy to repackage the streams in an m4v/mp4 container without the need to re-encode if you have some MKVs lying around. Otherwise, you'd be better off to just use m4v/mp4 for now.
I've tried to find something that would repackage my MKV files (have over 200 of them) with having to re-encode. So IF you or anyone knows of such, please give me a heads up and I'll try it out. I have found, since not being able to find such software, that I am having to take the MKV file and use it as a source in Handbrake and re-encoding it as a .m4v.
MyMedia is great, but I wish I could access my iTunes playlists. Any Mac users done this?
I tried to create a folder in my iTunes folder called playlist. I exported an iTunes playlist in .m3u format. It can see the playlist, but if i click on it, it says "Empty Playlist" and "No audio items were retrieved."
In the .m3u file, my paths are the same as the paths in my configuration, so I don't know why it can't see the music.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Running 10.6.8 on a macbook pro.
I have little to no Mac experience and you couldn't pay me to use iTunes, but if the playlist has full paths it should work. Check the my_media_log.txt file in the server directory and it may give information as to why "No audio items were retrieved".
Keep in mind that only MP3 and WMA files are supported.
