What do you mean when you say it doesn't work? Is the "watch in browser" button visible?

No the "watch in browser" button is not visible when i trie converting with handbrake. Probably a problem in the settings when im converting the videos or something

how do i make sure that im updated to your latest version?
if this is in my changelog
#### 1.6.10
* include the address when logging login attempts
* update icons in the watch modal dialog
* enable the "Watch in browser" button for H.264/AAC/MKV files too since they work in Chrome
* added missing logging when the "Watch in browser" button is clicked

does that mean im good?

is there a way i can enable the watch in browser button regardless of video format? plex.tv is very similar to this and is able to play all my file format, granted i have no idea how it works in the background Tongue all my files are either mkv, mp4 or avi.

If you follow the upgrade instructions on Github you will be on the latest version. In your case it seems like you are.

@publisacman: the problem with that file is that for some reason XBMC can't parse the media info from it, which means XBMC Video Server can't determine whether it's playable in the browser or not. I've modified the code to only look at the file extension when no stream details are available, this should fix your issue. Run a "git pull" to get the latest code.
