Linux will not play video from a network share
Ok this ones got me stumped. I have a server running nas4free that houses all of my tv shows and movies. They are shared using SMB. Using windows or OS X I can play these files directly off of the share without issue. However linux refuses to do so. I am currently running SUSE 12.2 and trying to play them in VLC which will load the file, resize the window then refuse to start playing it, no error message. Kaffene will play the file for 1 second then stop. I have already installed the codec package for suse. I also tried install ububtu on another PC to see if it was a distro specific problem. Ubuntu did the same this, VLC wouldn't do anything and whatever their default player is would play the video, but with very distorted sound and somewhat choppy and garbled video. I'm baffled..... Any ideas???
