    Us SMB with MPlayer CE 0.75

    I'm fairly new here and I'm having difficulties with the whole SMB. I even went to (Configs - mplayer-ce - Setup Configs - Project Hosting on Google Code), it had a lot of good info on it, but my Wii just wont connect. Everytime I get things set up and select SMB in MPlayer CE, it just freezes or gives me an error about reconnecting. I can't find any good help on the matter and I'm getting rather frustrated with the whole ordeal. Plus I'm tired of loading movies onto my thumb drives when I have a 1TB drive attached to my network.

    Not sure what help I can be, but I have had it working on 0.70 and 0.72 across wifi to my Win XP share. I did try 0.75 but reverted back, can't recall the reason though. Haven't got it working on Windows 7 yet. The link you posted seems quite good though.

    Maybe if you post your config I can be of some help.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    #Max 5 samba shares (review menu.conf to add more samba browsing)
    #no ip or no share means samba disabled
    #It's important use quotes (") on shares with blank spaces, see example 2

    #Samba share1 (smb1:/)
    ip1=192.168.1.97

    #Samba share5 (smb5:/)
    ip5=192.168.1.96
    share5=Downloads
    user5=Jenkins
    pass5=lacey1

    Here's how my smb.conf file share is set up, windows xp(smb3) and windows 7(smb1) has no password or username and vista (smb 2 & 5)(must have password and username). My only other thought would be are the folders opened up fully to be shared from pc(right click, properties, sharing, advanced sharing, permisions, everyone). I'm leaving tonight and won't be able to reply further(see you in the new year). If it helped "your welcome" and if not "sorry I couldn't be of further assistance. Hope it points you in the right direction".

    Honestly if anyone else has been having problems with SMB shares and mplayer ce I'd be glad if they chimed in. I've been fooling with it for a few hours now. The problem has to be simple as there are only so many variables that I can work with. I have ftpii working on Windows 7 so the operating system shouldnt be an issue.

    #Max 5 samba shares (review menu.conf to add more samba browsing)
    #no ip or no share means samba disabled
    #It's important use quotes (") on shares with blank spaces, see example 2

    #Samba share1 (smb1:/)
    ip1=192.168.0.198
    share1=Z:\TV
    user1=anonymous
    pass1=anon@localhost

    #Samba share2 (smb2:/)
    ip2=192.168.0.198
    share2=\\ghostdesk\z
    user2=anonymous
    pass2=anon@localhost

    #Samba share3 (smb3:/)
    ip3=192.168.0.198
    share3=Z:
    user3=anonymous
    pass3=anon@localhost

    #Samba share4 (smb4:/)
    ip4=
    share4=
    user4=
    pass4=

    #Samba share3 (smb5:/)
    ip5=
    share5=
    user5=
    pass5=


    The bolded portion is my config. The Ip address is my ipv4 pulled from ipconfig, and the anon and anon@localhost is from ftpii. I havent been using that but at the time of writing this I've gone out on a limb.

    Just a thought, but is your firewall configured to allow access to the share? On pc and router.

    Haha I'm glad that you mentioned it but yes it is, mostly because I have no firewalls, windows or otherwise, turned on.

    Ill fix that problem after I deal with this.

    But everything is configured to share, and I routinely pull things off the HD attached to my desk from my laptop.

    all I can say is I have never tried, so I did and it works great. Now i have been sharing this share with the rest of my lan without issue for some time. Here is my config for 1 share

    #Max 5 samba shares (review menu.conf to add more samba browsing)
    #no ip or no share means samba disabled
    #It's important use quotes (") on shares with blank spaces, see example 2

    #DESKTOP-007 (smb1:/)
    ip1=192.168.0.3
    share1=Docs-007
    user1=user
    pass1=pass

    So first, be sure that "share1=" is the name of your share and not the path. Second I tried to name it, but the name did not carry over to the wii- but it works, I think the name is in menu.conf- looking at it now the # kinda of insures that. I also supplied user pass of admin/root. If you are able to access your share form other pc, verify the share name and ip. If you are unable to access from any, ensure proper firewall setup in router and pc.

    my new config:

    ip1=192.168.0.3
    share1=Docs-007
    user1=user
    pass1=pass


    Also if you would like to name the share, open menu.conf and look for

    <cmdlist name="open_smb" title="Choose SMB Share" ptr="<>" >
    <e name="../" ok="menu cancel"/>
    <e name="SMB share 1 ..." ok="set_menu open_smb1"/>
    <e name="SMB share 2 ..." ok="set_menu open_smb2"/>
    <e name="SMB share 3 ..." ok="set_menu open_smb3"/>
    <e name="SMB share 4 ..." ok="set_menu open_smb4"/>
    <e name="SMB share 5 ..." ok="set_menu open_smb5"/>
    </cmdlist>

    Add and remove shares as needed and give it a better name than SMB share. i changed mine to

    <cmdlist name="open_smb" title="Choose SMB Share" ptr="<>" >
    <e name="../" ok="menu cancel"/>
    <e name="DESKTOP-007" ok="set_menu open_smb1"/>

    </cmdlist>

    So to clarify your share1 is the name of say for example, the HD and not the actual assigned letter path and

    #DESKTOP-007 (smb1:/)

    the DESKTOP-007 is actually the name of your comp?

    To find the name of your share in xp (and similar)
    Start-Control panel- Administrative tools- computer management- shared folders-shares:

    Or right click on my computer and click manage to open computer management.

    You need the shared folder name, not the shared path.
