VIDEO_TS folder hard-disk vs. network - forza11 - 05-01-2009 03:50 PM

Hi,

when i have a video-TS folder on the internal HD it works perfectly (i.e. the DVD starts playing when opening the folder). But when i try this on a network drive (using myihome), i have to select the different VOB files.

Is there any way i can enable the auto start (resulting in a fully functional DVD) for VIDEO_TS folders on network drives?

What do you mean? the network drive?

I don't think he means anything, i don't think he's trying to help. He's just trying to advertise his site...thats all.
and to answer your question, i don't think that feature is supported in http streaming, which is what myihome uses.

ok thanks, any other way to get this working without myihome?

i THINK if you stream it via SMB share it'll work but i'm not 100% sure about that.
in other words just make a normal share to the network drive with the network browser on your pch.

finally got my network share to work and tested this. Works like a charm. thanks!

So now my only question is; what is the advantage of using myihome over regular network sharing?
