Play contet e.g mkv from local network - dsd - 04-13-2008 09:36 PM
how do I play content e.g. mkv from the local network with the NMT app sdk?
I have tried to use the video tag but the pph goes black for a few seconds and then return to the pph gui again.
Is it possible to play content from an UNC path "\\server\video\video1.mkv"?
Thanks in advance.

Any help would be appreciated.

basically, reverse your slashes, make sure you use 3 slashes for file :, 2 for any other protocol, and drop the leading slashes for media stored relative to your server
