I am receiving error: "playback failed, one or more items failed to play, check the log file for details" when I attempt to play video. I am trying to play videos from Windows via SMB. I click a video and sometimes it will load but then it has terrible buffering. Usually the video does not load and get the error above.
Here is log: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=3579
Windows 7 32 Bit
NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet
Apple TV 2 - 5.0.2 (also tried on 4.4.4)
XBMC Darwin 11.0.0
Connecting through Windows Network SMB
I was on 4.4.4 and everything was working fine. I went on vacation for 3 weeks and when I came back I started getting this issue. So, I realized 5.0.2 was jailbreakable so I upgraded but same thing was happening.
Then I decided to format my Windows PC since it was time anyway, but that didn't help. I even moved the videos to a new hard drive.
Also, I don't know if its related but when I try re-adding the videos to XBMC it always asks for password now. I didn't before. The only way I can even get to the list of videos is by creating a password to windows acct then using those credentials when XBMC forces me to enter them.
I've been stuck on this for several days. Hoping someone on here can help!
Help, getting error: playback failed, one or more items...
