simplevideo test file does not play

I am using the simplevideo source file to test.

In its initial setup, it plays the "Craig Venter" file.
If I follow the instructions and uncomment/comment out other selections, they do not work, most notably the Big Buck Bunny hls instance.

I am able to get a my own hosted hls instance to work using the customplayer, but not the simpleplayer.

Also when I try to telnet to the Roku to run the debugger, it returns

'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Any suggestions?

Re: simplevideo test file does not play

You don't have "telnet" installed on your PC. In recent version of Windows it does not come installed by default. Google "how to install telnet on windows" or read putty", a most popular terminal emulator.
