Direct play not working with NFS path substitution in KODI

Hi, I'm trying to get direct play to work for the movies that reside on my NAS via NFS.  But Emby is unable to verify the path.  The NFS path listed in the log below is exactly the same path that works from the file manager in Kodi.  My Emby server is Windows 8.1 and cannot access the NFS share outside of Kodi, but this shouldn't matter because of the path substitution, correct?  Is the Kodi client verifying the path or is the Emby server?

 

Setup:

 

Emby Server - Window 8.1 Prof.

NAS = WD My Cloud NFS/SMB

Kodi = Windows and RPI2

 

Emby library folder:

 

\\192.168.0.101\media\movies

 

Emby Path Substitution:

\\192.168.0.101\media

to

nfs://192.168.0.101/nfs/media 

 

Log:

Are you certain the path is valid? The addon uses the Kodi api to verify the file existence. Can you test the path to make sure it actually resolves outside of kodi? Do you need credentials to access the share?

Try specifying the port in your path substitution and include a trailing slash, like:

 

nfs://192.168.0.101:2049/nfs/media/

 

2049 should usually be the default nfs port unless the WD is using something different.
