Dolphin+SMPlayer+samba (again)


Hello,
I got an external hard drive, plugged it into router, added Samba user and password. I've copied onto it movies, jpegs, docs etc.
Dolpnin opens fine all kinds of files, except movies. When clicking on the movie, SMPlayer just appears but doesn't play.
I tried to open the movie from terminal:
Code:
(s)mplayer smb://user:password@192.168.1.1/share/movies/movie.mp4
This works fine.
The string in the SMplayer's header contains (after the unsuccesful launch):
Code:
smb://user@192.168.1.1/share/movies/movie.mp4,
so I've tried to open it from SMPlayer with password (Open->Address):
Code:
smb://user:password@192.168.1.1/share/movies/movie.mp4
It works also without problems.
What's the problem?
Kubuntu 13.04, SMPlayer 0.8.3.

Thanks,
Michael.

[sorry for English]

My router has ability for plugging the external hard drive and to share its content with Samba. No nfs/sshfs

samba ?
is smplayer installed on a Microsoft Windows machine ?
and you are trying to watch them FROM a MS windows computer .

otherwise you really do not need to login to a MS windows domain to access the drive from a linux machine

now of the files are on a linux network and you need to access them from a windows OS then samba will be needed

also what codecs are installed ?
almost every Mplayer guide uses the current "2011-all" codec package

Did you read my posts?
First, I have a router. It has an USB slot for plugging USB drive. It has in its settings the Samba section where I can set login and password.
Second, see what I wrote in my first post. It works fine when I open the movie from the command line and from SMPlayer address string. So I don't need extra codecs.
Sorry, but your post was useless.

i had to read (then re-read your initial post). the second post was 15 minutes before john-vv's response so he probably didnt refresh in time.



this is rather strange. seems like you are able to explicitely put the password in the command-line (which kinda' defeats the purpose of a password -- another reason why samba sux) but in the gui you are unable to type in the password (the reason why both of us recomended nfs/sshfs).

its nice that your router has nas functionality but it seems to be using a limited protocol.

are you able to create sym-links with the password in the link (i dont have samba so i never tried it) ?
