ANSWERED File not found

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I replaced paths on Emby server: volume1/Media/Film/Movies by \\NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies

 

Whenever I try to play a movie form Emby Theater with MPC-HC as an external player, MPC-HC opens but indicates it cannot find a file?? What am I missing? Should I do something extra besides replacing paths?

 

Playing the same media directly for MPC-HC works well.

 

The ET-log when launching  a movie:

Try //NAS1815/Media/Film/Movies. You've left the Windows world.

Thanks for pointing that out but it's not the answer: file still cannot be found by mpc-hc

Apologies. I use MPC-BE w/ content stored on NAS without issue. & looking at the library config, the original path was correct from Emby's perspective.. Does your NAS spin-down drives when idle? Perhaps it's not waking quickly enough to MPC-HC's initial request?

 

Do you get  the same result playing the file via web client?

d00zah, no worries. thanks for hrelping.  And you helped! 

 

I looked closer at the log and saw 3 slashes /// ... So I replaced paths as follows:

 

 volume1/Media/Film/Movies by \NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies instead of \\NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies.

 

And now all is okay! The example path replacement on the server dashboard is somehow misleading because it gives as an example \\my server\....

Glad you found it. I was doing some testing & was going to suggest issuing the command (based on log snippet):

 

'C:\Program Files (x86)\MPC-HC\mpc-hc.exe" "\\\NAS1815\Media\Film\Movies\3 10 to Yuma (2007)\3 10 to Yuma (2007).mkv"

 

from the command prompt to remove Emby from the equation. If that worked...

 

Curious... you're using path substitution? When adding libraries, I just browse to the NAS path I want to add (no substitution) & I've never had an issue. Seems like an unnecessary layer of complexity. YMMV. Enjoy!

Path substitution because I cannot browse to (or manually ad) the NAS path when adding libraries. No idea why.

Hmmm. Just noticed thread in the Synology section... must not have all the kinks worked out yet. My understanding is that path substitution applied to Windows drive-letter path issues. In light of the server being hosted on a linux OS, my original path suggestion stands. & should eliminate the need for path substitution.

 

Wish my NAS had the horsepower (& support)  to offload the server function. A project for another day...
