[MAC] XBMC External Player and SMB - Aonoa - 2011-10-19 12:02
I am using a Macbook with Snow Leopard to run XBMC and in light of the new 10bit anime's not being playable in my XBMC, I used the instructions here: external_player in order to be able to launch an external player for those files. However, no files (not even non-10bit files) will play when I am using the external players, either one of VLC or MPlayerX. In fact, I have to kill the external players process manually to make XBMC respond again.
All of my sources are smb shares hosted on a Linux server. I have tried to start both VLC and MPlayerX manually using the smb://server/folder/file_to_play path, but they won't play that kind of location. Maybe that is the problem? I thought they would have support for smb locations?
Any ideas as to how to solve this?
