Just ran the 2/14 build. No difference.

<from>special://profile/Thumbnails/</from>
I did same w/ full perms on windows share, but i took the authentication (dont think any reason but the one i have on ipad now, does not have user@pass:ip just IP, have you tried that?)

Yes, I forgot to mention it but I tried that as well. I know the link is working, it just can't actually pull the files. I don't get it.

The remote thumbnail fix isn't in the 2/14 build. If you check the git commit that was linked to by Senaxx, you will see that it was committed on 2/15. You'll have to wait for keith to roll a new build.

Ahh, see I didn't do that. I was going off one of the comments that said it was fixed in the 2/14 build. Guess I'll wait for the next build to see if it's fixed then.

I just tried the new iOS build that was recently posted and :

<pathsubstitution>
<substitute>
<from>/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Thumbnails/</from>
<to>smb://192.168.1.105/d/XBMCTHUMBS/</to>
</substitute>
</pathsubstitution>

WORKED! I now have thumbnails on my ATV2 from my smb share. Awesome!

im so close but its driving me nuts.
what am i doing wrong Frown

my <substitute> string points from /mnt/homeNAS/ to smb://HOMENAS/Guest/

i added 2 sources on the phone ( /mnt/homeNAS/ & smb://HOMENAS/Guest/ )

in file mode... both sources play video
in library mode... it still tries to load from /mnt/homeNAS/ (& fails) Confused

log@pastbin

help please


- Memphiz - 2011-02-18 10:41

better use
Code:
<from>special://masterprofile/Thumbnails</from>
... it is more generic Smile


- Memphiz - 2011-02-18 10:43

@ zosky

your issue doesn't seem to be related to this topic (using a mysql db). Please open a new thread. Or post your advancedsettings.xml and give some more info what you wanted to do.

dude; really ?

have a look at the log ... the advancedsettings.xml is lines 22-38 ... it points to mySQL db & has a substitution for /mnt/homeNAS to smb://HOMENAS/Guest.

the substitution works when im browsing file mode
but when im browsing the (mySQL db) library (on the iphone4)
... it still tries to load /mnt/homeNAS/TV/show/101.avo

why is the substitution only working in file mode ?
________________________

EDIT: never mind ... it works now. i changed nothing, but library mode works now

i also added a 2nd substitution for special://masterprofile/Thumbnails
but i'm using the 2.07 build (so they dont load)
... waiting patiently for a new (2.16+) build

this is so cool!


- Memphiz - 2011-02-18 17:52

Ah sorry ... yeah there was the advancedsettings.xml and you used mysql ... ok - mea culpa Big Grin ... and there is a current build which should support remote thumbnails in the nightly builds thread ...

I can confirm that with the 2.17 build all is now working flawlessly.

This is getting to be a large and popular topic. Does anyone want to provide a walkthrough / points / tips / benefits on how to properly get this running? Then the original poster can update his post to include this information to benefit the whole community. Plus it will cut down on a lot of repeat questions.

ive noticed ever since i setup my database as mysql the whole interface as a whole runs slower on the atv2. even scrolling through menus can take 5-10 seconds to respond at times. I have the 2/17/11 nightly on the atv. on my other computers the interface runs just fine. any reason it would be doing this? i know running it through mysql can slow things somewhat, but even in the main menus? anybody elses complete interface running slow?
