View Full Version : MythVideo playback issues

December 27th, 2008, 07:27 AM
I am having a hard time with this one. I recently moved my movies around due to space issues. After moving them all my VIDEO_TS folders changed to video_ts, that cost me an hour of troubleshooting and then renaming. Now I still can't play any. I can browse to the shared folder from my windows machine and play with VLC, so I know the folder structures and such are right. These worked prior to my moving them in myth. I have messed with ownership to see if it mattered if mythtv or my user owned the folders and files, but that didn't seem to matter. I am missing something else possibly obvious. Here is what I see in mythfrontend.log when I try to select one:

Is that normal stuff from libdvd from a folder of a ripped movie? All my searches for the NVP: Couldn't find matching... message came up with older LiveTV problems.

I am running mythbuntu 8.10 recently checked for updates. VIDEO_TS is set to use Internal player. Any thoughts from anyone?:confused:

No one out there this week or no ideas what is wrong with my internal player. So, does anyone know how to reset everything without reinstalling. My thoughts now is just a fresh re-install, but I have to save off all of these movies first. If I can do something to basically clear MythTV and then start over, without doing the base OS, that might be my answer. (this is my secondary front end, Mythbuntu 8.10.)
