Hi, I am trying to play a movie clip in mplayer from my FC machine which is shared by another windows machine and cannot get it to work. =============================== 1. I tried to drag and drop the movie clip in mplayer from the share but no reaction in mplayer and no error message. 2. right clicking the movie clip file and tried to open with mplayer gives me following error message: "No stream found to handle url smb://server/share/movie_clip.avi" =============================== I am bit confused here because, the file transfer to and from linux and windows machine between these shares is perfectly working fine. Do I have to mount the share to my local drive to be able to play this clip? By the way I can play the movie clip in my windows machine (with various players including mplayer) which is shared form this FC machine why? What's missing? Thanks in advance for the guidance.
