<Solved> Playing video through windows shares (SMB)

Nothing I play through my network normally will play on q4os, I get the "The playback of this movie requires a SMB protocol source plugin which is not installed." prompt. VLC gives some error. If I transfer it to my system, it plays fine. I've installed all the libraries offered by google search. I cant find anything wrong. Nothing plays. I'm sure this has been asked before. I researched it, didnt find any info in these forums.

Thanks in advance

You could try to install 'vlc-plugin-samba' package, type in terminal:
$ sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-samba

Already installed. More info: If I boot to a live usb drive of q4os, it plays fine. The installed version just has trouble.

Try to install 'fuse' and 'fusesmb' packages:
$ sudo apt-get install fuse fusesmb

Run vlc in terminal:
$ vlc
play a network movie and post back terminal output to analyze.

Re: <Solved> Playing video through windows shares (SMB)

Looks like insufficient permissions to mount the shared smb folder, you could make it work by following these directions:
1. Open VLC
2. Go to Tools > Preferences
3. Under the header Show Settings (bottom left), select the All button
4. Select Input / Codecs > Access Modules > SMB on the left
5. Enter credentials

Re: <Solved> Playing video through windows shares (SMB)

That seems to fix the vlc problem. Any clue about totem?
