Unable to stream MP4 content - even locally

Postby EvanBasalik » Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:31 pm

Just installed Remote Potato based on a colleague's recommendation and am impressed so far. Setup was a breeze and I can successfully browse everything with no problems. However, I am unable to get streaming going properly - even locally.

I verified the ports are mapped properly (even though that shouldn't impact locally, I wouldn't think), but no go. I took a look at the log and didn't see any clues.

I even tried turning up the logging, but didn't see anything that looked interesting. Any suggestions on where to go next?

Hi, can you try to test with different clients?

- pc through html interface
- pc through silverlive interface
- android phone (combined with a free app like Daroon Player of Vplayer
- ipad or iphone?

mp4 are unprotected video clips, arent they? They should work as long as the client can render (decode) them.
