Audacious not playing over LAN

Added by Liam G over 7 years ago

This is a strange one. I had audacious working over the LAN from my Windows XP box playing no a Bodhi Linux box (Ubuntu 10.4 base). I did an update and now it's not playing across the LAN. I thought it was just a Bodhi issue, but I've just installed Linux Mint debian Edition on a different machine and this has the same issue out of the box.
Any ideas? Both machines use Nautilus as the file manager and have Samba installed.

I assume since you mentioned Samba that the files are on an SMB share. Do you mount the SMB share on the Linux box using FUSE, or do you pass the smb:// URI directly to Audacious?

Before all I've needed to do is click on the file and it plays. The MP3s play over the network using VLC, and files on a local drive play on Audacious without issue. It's the "One minute here, next minute gone!" thing that's annoying.

I agree that it's nice when things work out of the box. However, if you want any help getting your networked playback to work, you will have to provide more information than, "It used to work and now it doesn't."

What do you need to know? I browse the network using Nautilus, mount the share using Nautilus, click the file in Nautilus! One day it worked, the next day it didn't. I had changed nothing. There is nothing on this issue anywhere that I've been able to find on the web so I came here asking for advice. VLC plays the files without any problem from a network share on another machine, but Audacious doesn't. I'm using the 3.2.0-19 Kernel with the Enlightenment desktop and Nautilus file manager. If you want more details let me know what you need and I'll tell you.

I don't use Nautilus and don't know how it does things, so I guess I can't help you if you don't know. Sorry.

That's what I need to know.
