    Hi,

    I'm having problems trying to mount a shared folder from my pc on my ultimo. I've searched through countless forums and tutorials. The ultimo seems to indicate I have completed an CIFS share but when I try to find the mounted folder on my media player its not there?? Is there any additional setting I need to be aware of? Could somebody who has successfully done this be kind enough to give me a step by step guide.

    Basically what I'm trying to achieve is to be able to play movies stored on my PC on my Ultimo. I've also tried the VLC web interface(PC) and VLC plugin(Ultimo) method with no luck either. I get a 403 error.

    Thanks in advance

    Witch version of Windows are you using, because for Windows 7 you require to use a login and password.
    You did create it succesfull in the past?

    I'm using windows 7. I created an Administrator account with user name vu and password vu to make it simple and used this on the Nework wizard on the Ultimo. I called the Network share "My PC". I can see this in the media player but I cannot see my shared folder "movies" in this dir. I made sure this folder is shared with rw to everyone in the network on my PC.

    Can you post over here what config you have in your MountManager --> Mountpoints management --> Mounts editor

    or if it`s easier automounts.xml in /etc/enigma2

    When I try delete the mount so that I can try again my Ultimo just hangs with a message "please wait until mount is deleted". I have waited over 20mins and the message is still there.

    I think You do not have to delete mount
    try after box restart and change folder name to make again mount.

    Problem with .avi is that they can have a variety of differents codecs, so you good have bad luck in this case, especily when they`re made with the same bad convertor.
    If they`re good then they will just play, or you can have another problem, if you`ve have a sample of one we could test.

    I think you may be right. They may be badly converted avi files. I will test with better files. Thanks ever so much for your help
