SMS network problem –
I've installed SMS 2.0 with FMCB 1.8b in my 8MB MC.
SMS can play the movie files and MP3 files in USB storage.
Also, the files on network PC can be listed on SMS both via SMB/CIFS and Radhostclient.
But SMS stops working with displaying 'Detecting file format....' after selecting the file on network drive.
@Franz: SMS 2.0? I thought I was behind the times. :smile:
It sounds like you have tried 3 different sources:
1) USB - working
2) Shared folder on PC - working
3) Network drive - not working
Is that correct?
Do you get the "Detecting file format..." message for MP3 audio and for video files that are known to work from your PC or USB?
@KnoWei : thank you reply.
Sorry, I have meaned Network drive is same to Shared folder on PC.
I put all playable MP3 and AVI files on USB into shared folder on PC.
Those are able to be listed on SMS browser with all network protocol, SMB/CIFS or Radhostclient.
So I can browse all shared folders and files on my PC using SMS browser.
but when I push the 'X' button to play any file, SMS stops working only saying 'Detecting file format...' with not working any keypad input.
I've tried to use newest SMS 2.9, but same problem occured.
I think this problem is due to not SMS but my network environment including wireless router and Windows network setting.
Since you can see the files and select them with SMS you are very close.

Is it possible for you to test a wired connection all the way through? I have had some problems with some lower end PCs when streaming video over wireless.
Thank you reply.

According your advise, I have tried to test PC-to-notebook video streaming, it was very smooth. I think the problem is not due to PC's low spec. And PC and PS2 are connected wired with router.
I guess Windows XP security service or Port control of router might disturb SMB protocol.
I can generate the "Detecting File Format..." and hang SMS but only when selecting a file encoded with a non-supported codec. For example an Apple iPod *.mp4 formatted clip.
My *.avi files are all DiVX encoded and work fine.
Since you say the files worked with SMS from your USB drive then we have to assume they would be valid from your PC HD too.
I don't stream from a PC so I'm not familiar with what sort of setup issues might occur there.
Sorry I can't be of more help.
