PCH not playing files from Jukebox

PCH not playing files from Jukebox

I am a newbie to pch and is looking to use MovieJukeBox.

I have a readynas storing many of my movies (mkv ..etc), and I have been able to use MovieJukeBox to generate htmls, and then I moved it over to the NAS drive.

When I use pch and navigate to the index.html (on the nas drive), the pages are navigated properly, but when I got to the movie page, and subsequently press "play", it buffers and exit to go back to the movie page again.

The code below is my html auto generated. i have been surfing NMT forum for hours, just didn't get the solution. Please help.

<html><head><link rel="StyleSheet" type="text/css" href="exportdetails_item_popcorn.css"/><meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/><title>Ratatouille</title><script type="text/javascript">
var baseFilename = "Ratatouille.1080p.dts";
  var title = 1;
  var lnk = 1;
  function lnkt() {
    if ( title == 1 ) title = document.getElementById('title').firstChild;
    if ( lnk == 1 ) lnk = document.getElementById('playLink');
  function show(x) {
    title.nodeValue = document.getElementById('title'+x).firstChild.nodeValue;
    if(lnk)lnk.setAttribute('HREF', baseFilename + '.playlist' + x + '.jsp');
  function hide() {
    title.nodeValue = "-";
    if(lnk)lnk.setAttribute('HREF', '');
</script></head><body bgproperties="fixed" background="pictures/background.jpg" onloadset="Play"><table class="main" align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr height="30"><td height="50" align="center" colspan="2"><a TVID="HOME" href="../index.htm"/><a TVID="PGDN" href="star.trek.the.future.begins.2009.html"/><a TVID="PGUP" href="Iron.Man.Bluray.1080p.html"/></td></tr><tr align="left" valign="top"><td width="420px"><img width="400" src="Ratatouille.1080p.dts_large.png"/></td><td><table border="0" width="85%"><tr><td class="title1" valign="top" colspan="2">Ratatouille (2007) </td></tr><tr><td class="title2" valign="top" colspan="2"><img src="pictures/rating_80.png"/>

RE: PCH not playing files from Jukebox
What you describe, is more than likely a nmtpath issue and is probably the most common thing people get wrong when first setting Yamj up.

Where does your network share to your NAS point to? What is its name? Have you even created one? Post an xml file up (not the HTMl) so we can see where Yamj thinks your films are.

RE: PCH not playing files from Jukebox
i have several network shares (SMB, AFP and NFS). I have set up 2 network shares on the PCH

1. "samba scratch" --> smb://YWW/Scratch
2. "nfs scratch" --> nfs://

Both shares are pointing to the same place on the NAS

On a webbrowser, I can even see files using

Using the "samba share", I can browse and watch movies.

I have a test directory "hdtest" on Scratch which have movies on it.

Please let me know if anyone need any more info to help me.

Here is my libraries.xml contents
        <exclude name="sample,tmp/,temp/,RECYCLE.BIN/"/>

RE: PCH not playing files from Jukebox

Should look something like this:

<nmtpath>file:///opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/NETWORK_SHARE/name of network share</nmtpath>

If you haven't already, you need to create a network share on your NMT.
