Using "file mode" but can't play avi, divx etc - 09-August-2009, 16:37

I want to use my DM as a media centre so I've setup some mount points on my DM600 - they are pointing to a couple of networked PC's with media files on.

I can see the contents of the networked folders to some extent. I can play mp3 files but I can't even see divx/avi files (i.e. most of the files). I can play VOB files, but without sound.

Do I need to install some sort of divx plugin?

you need to install the vlc plugin on your dreambox.
And run vlc player on the pc so that the encoding happens on that PC.

Use the extention --extraintf http on the pc when running VLC.


Setup for the vlc plugin on the dreambox is as follows

Select add server.
Enter the ip number from the PC where vlc player is running.
Set audio format to mp1 and 48000Hz samplerate.
Set video-format to 352x288.



If you feel the need use the button.

It is better to give than to take, to share is divine..........

The plugin that I found under "addons/plugins" has installed VLCF v 0.8 (Sep 2008). You must be talking about a different plugin because on VLCF there is no option to "add server", I have to do it manually by editing a cfg file. In any case, VLCF doesn't work for me either as per my other cry for help:

Is there a different plugin I can/should try? If so, where do I find it. No sign of it in plugins section.
