PCH, WHS, Movie Flow Issue - Please Help

PCH, WHS, Movie Flow Issue - Please Help
Hi Guys,

I've searched pretty much everywhere and tried My Lil' Movie Jukebox and Movie Flow to get this to work with no success. I have a PCH, WHS using SMB shares (full of .iso and .mkv files) and obviously a PC.

I have set up the index.html files for both of the jukeboxes perfectly using both MLMJB and MovieFlow apart from the Play link. With the .mkv files the screen goes black as if it's going to start, and then returns to the movie details page, and with .iso files nothing happens.

Y:\FILMS\ is a mount of my VIDEOS\FILMS smb share from my popcorn hour.

I don't have a hard drive in my popcorn hour, so put the html files onto the Photo share of the WHS and access it there and it seems to run fine. What am I doing wrong that is stopping my files from playing?

Sorry, just to add, I can play the files fine from the Popcorn hours standard menus, and do this before trying to access them through the jukebox.

RE: PCH, WHS, Movie Flow Issue - Please Help
Hello acgwilliam,

That does not look like the correct mapping ...

are you using the internal hard drive on the pch ??

If so then do NOT select smb you select NMT's Hard drive ...

The if it is the NMT's Hard drive ...

it should be :
y:\videos\Films
videos/films

Click the check PCH URL button and post a screen shot of what Shows up on the pull down list ...

What Player are You using A-100, A-110 ??

Did you do the configuration before you imported from Movie Collector ?

What does the import screen and the Main screen look like ??

Please post what steps you did ...
Did you correctly Follow the Instruction on the Web page ?

What is a WHS ?? and what is its correct full name as it would appear
like My computer is michaelt:drive-d/my movies ....

You did NOT enter a name for the WHS which I think is a NAS of some type ???

RE: PCH, WHS, Movie Flow Issue - Please Help
Thanks for the help, i'll try to answer the questions as best I can.

That does not look like the correct mapping ...

are you using the internal hard drive on the pch ??
Theres no internal Hardrive in the popcorn hour. I can install one if I need to but I have 4tbs worth of movies so couldn't fit all my films on that hard drive.


If so then do NOT select smb you select NMT's Hard drive ...

The if it is the NMT's Hard drive ...

it should be :
y:\videos\Films
videos/films

Click the check PCH URL button and post a screen shot of what Shows up on the pull down list ... I'm afraid I don't know how to do this, but think it only applies if I have a hard drive installed.

What Player are You using A-100, A-110 ?? Using the A110

Did you do the configuration before you imported from Movie Collector ? I did the configuration using the movie flow program, as it seemed the easiest way. I did this before I exported to html and got my movieflow.html file which I can use to browse all the films and the details about them.

What does the import screen and the Main screen look like ??

Just to let you know, x:\ is the mapped drive of my photo part of the whs smb share - thats where I've been running the jukebox from.

Please post what steps you did ...

I followed the instructions as they appeared on the website to the letter

What is a WHS ?? and what is its correct full name as it would appear
like My computer is michaelt:drive-d/my movies ....
Sorry, A whs is a Windows Home Server, which similar to a NAS I believe. I have 4 1tb my books attached to it, and it creates a large storage pool which acts as one drive.

You did NOT enter a name for the WHS which I think is a NAS of some type ??? my windows home server is called AGWHS,

Thanks for the help, if theres anything else I need to tell you please tell me. The popcorn hour is brilliant and plays everything I throw it it perfectly, but the jukeboxes links just don't seem to work for some reason. All of the movies are directed in the same way as 27 dresses is within edit film for each movie.

Hello acgwilliam,

Goto The Popcorn and Bring up the Mapped Drive Page and Take picture and Post it ... this will allow me to see how you should have entered the Mapped drive Name ...

Please Note : I need the Detailed Info Showing what you mapped ...

Mapped drives on the PCH have your WHS name and drive mapping ...
That same info has to be entered in the configuration page.

Please confirm Movie Flow should Be working just Fine except it will not play the Movies ?? Is that correct ?

Have you done the Final build and Played the html files on the PCH ??

I've done the final build, and the jukebox works perfectly apart from the files not playing. Here are the two network pages I can find on the popcorn hour, Thanks again for all your help!

Has anyone had any experience of making YAMJ work with this, or my lil movie jukebox? And would I be better off with a hard drive in the popcorn hour? Thanks

Hello acgwilliam

I am out of the country traveling ... But I believe all you need
to do is set you configuration for the NMT shares to the Following :

/AGWHS/Videos

and pick smb ... that should do it ...

Then Re import from MOC and build the Movie Flow systems.

Good Luck
