Can't stream music or video from mythweb

Reported by: stefano.ceccherini@… Owned by: Rob Smith
Priority: major Milestone: unknown
Component: Plugin - MythWeb Version: 0.24-fixes
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Using mythweb I can't stream music or video from a client. When I hit the play button in the web interface I get the m3u file, but opening it doesn't do anything. Copy/pasting the url in firefox, VLC, Rythmbox and Totem (under Ubuntu 10.04) doesn't produce any useful results. Totem says: Mythtv box is a Mythbuntu 10.04 with Mythtv 0.24, with daily builds enabled. VLC doesn't say anything.

Totem says: "GstDecodeBin2: This seems to be a text file."

The only logs I can see on the box are the apache logs: - - [23/Dec/2010:10:11:12 +0100] "GET /mythweb/music/stream?i=4487 HTTP/1.1" 206 715 "-" "vlc/1.1.4 LibVLC/1.1.4"

Will provide more data if needed. This never worked for me, but I reported only now, since I found other people was able to make it work. I checked the wiki but it seems I'm doing things correctly.

When streaming music and videos from MythWeb, files are accessed directly from the filesystem. That means Apache Directory directives and PHP directory access must be configured to allow access to those paths. This is likely a user configuration issue, rather than a bug.

Didn't intend to change priority.

Indeed, I found it was a file permission problem. Sorry for bothering and for taking so long to report back.
