VLC unable to open the MRL error.

Postby steinklatre on Sat Jan 14, 2012 5:17 pm

Setup is:

HP zt1185 running LMDE11 and I have my computer internal drive and external drive(via usb to router) mapped. I disabled the firewall on laptop, computer and router and still get the error.

I verified all folders are shared.

Any input?

As long as you can see the file, it probably doesn't matter how it is accessed, since you will only need read/execute permission to open the file
--in any case, could be Debian multimedia support

Try another media player, see if that works, then check any VLC plugins being used ?

Also, if it is a dvd/cd fileset, you usually use Open disc from VLC to read that setinto that application and begin processing the files in the order the fileset requires: the application VLC manages that for you..
    If you aren't doing it that way, you will have to identify the file type and see how or if it is supported by that application..

It is ripped DVD's in .mkv format and I use VLC to play them all on the host desktop. I have been reading about the debian issues. I will look into that angle.
