Playing mp3 on file file share over a network (File share is box)

Playing mp3 on file file share over a network (File share is box)

Post by Dean » Fri, 17 Sep 2004 23:43:42


I have a CEPC running CE.NET 4.2.

I have attempted to play an MP3 file using media player. The Mp3 file is
located on
a network share (actually on another CE.NET box). Media player refuses to
play the
file and says there is a file format error.
The same file can be played locally on the device. Also it is possible to
play the same
file located on a network share located on a PC. So the problem is I can't
play Mp3 (or .wav) files on a box from another CE.NET box.

Any body got any ideas?

2. Samba: Problems playing MP3 files from W2K share


I'm running Fedora Core 2 (kernel with Samba 3.0.6 on an AMD
750MHz w/256MB RAM. 100Mbit network, 3c905b.

When trying to play files from a W2K share, the sound "skips" all the
time. There is no extra network activity and my computers is quite idle
when this happens.

Copying files to/from the W2K computer is fast enough; 4.3MB in 5-6
seconds ought to be fast enough for my 128Kbit/sec-encoded MP3 files. :)

Here's the relevant data from the smb.conf file:

workgroup = WORKGROUP
netbios name = DRUID
server string = Linux
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
log level = 0
max log size = 128
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
max xmit = 32768
getwd cache = yes
dns proxy = no
password server = none
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers

I've tried messing with these settings quite much, without results. The
problems arise no matter which player I use; xmms or rhythmbox.

I tried to ask this question in a Samba related group, but failed to
receive any answers there.

Any ideas?
