Full Version: Videos folder empty when UPNP sharing
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
So I have XBMC running on a desktop using Linux Mint and I want to stream my music and videos to a few other computers in my house (a couple macbooks and a dell laptop), but more importantly to a raspberry pi connected to my living room TV. XBMC is installed on all of these devices and they have no trouble finding my desktop with UPNP. The music and videos folders show up and music works fine, however when I select the videos folder it is always empty. I know to scrape the videos folder for metadata and I've done that, but none of my movies or tv shows are ever accessible this way. Am I missing something extremely obvious?
It sounds like you've got the basics down, especially if you've got music to show up and you know how to scrape videos. Can you give us a debug log (wiki) from the UPnP host XBMC install as well as one of the client XBMC installs when you attempt to access video files via UPnP?
Thanks for such a quick reply and here are the debug logs from each:

Host -

Can you post full debug logs via pastebin and with debugging on? (Settings -> System -> Debugging)
Yes, sorry about that.. Here are the full debug logs:

I apologize if I'm still doing this wrong, I'm new to this sort of thing
That is not a full Debug Log and please don't paste directly on the forum
Always provide it from when starting
