Hi, I'm looking for a little setup help here. I am using the developer mode version of My Media because I would like to be able to help out (by the way, that's a big difference between this and Roksbox, for anyone keeping score). In particular I am using what I think is the upcoming release (but I could be mistaken): netguy204-roku_media_server-d65dec6
I have a library of videos that work well in Roksbox, so I know the Roku can play them. However, I used a test file posted in this forum a few weeks back (x264_Cool_bird_loves_Ray_Charles.m4v) to demonstrate that I'm not doing something wrong.
Here are the details.
1. Server is an Ubuntu box running python 2.6.5.
2. I set up config.ini to contain the following:
music_dir = /var/www/media/music/
video_dir = /var/www/media/video/
server_ip = 192.168.1.100
collapse_collections = False
roku_ip = roku-den.xxx.dyndns.org
max_folders_before_split = 10
theme = default
python_path = /usr/bin/python
server_port = 8001
photo_dir = /var/www/media/pictures
3. The feed comes up fine at http://192.168.1.100:8001/feed
, I can see everything. On the Roku box I can also see the files/directories/categories.
4. When I try to watch any movie, I just get a black screen for a second, retreiving begins, and the server displays
192.168.1.41:60405 - - [29/Dec/2010 22:36:10] "HTTP/1.1 GET /media" - 200 OK
192.168.1.41:60406 - - [29/Dec/2010 22:36:10] "HTTP/1.1 GET /media" - 200 OK
192.168.1.41:60408 - - [29/Dec/2010 22:36:10] "HTTP/1.1 GET /media" - 200 OK
192.168.1.41:60409 - - [29/Dec/2010 22:36:10] "HTTP/1.1 GET /feed" - 200 OK
At the same time, the debug session on the roku box displays
Starting from position 0
play failed: An unexpected problem (but not server timeout or HTTP error) has been detected.

roUrlEvent - level 1

5. I have verified on my laptop that I can watch and hear the video "x264_Cool_bird_loves_Ray_Charles.m4v" via the link http://192.168.1.100:8001/media?name=x2 ... &key=video
, although I'm not sure I'm any smarter for having done so. I actually watched the whole thing, so I can say that anybody else watching that video ought to skip ahead to the end where the bird starts putting his whole body into it. Solid gold.
Little help? I started looking through the docs from the dev kit but this didn't get me very far - especially with that awesome error message (unexpected problem but not timeout or HTTP error - thanks).
Thanks in advance.
