Video Files Appear, But Can't Play

Postby ntallman » Tue Jan 18, 2011 11:18 pm

I've installed Subsonic 4.4.beta1 (build 2132) and indexed videos. The videos show up, as music does. But, there is no +. How do I add videos to the play list? I've setup all the transcoding rules and enabled them in my web player. Any ideas?

You have Party Mode turned on...

In Party mode, the "Play now" button is removed to prevent someone from clearing the playlist. You just have "Add to playlist" buttons.

But since Video files cannot be added to a playlist, but can just be "Played now" the "Add" button is missing for video files.

Go to settings->Personal, and uncheck "Party Mode." Click "Save."

The entire interface will refresh, and you will now have triangular "Play Now" icons next to video files.

HTH,

Glenn

My pleasure. If I had not recently had one of my users do something similar, I would have been stumped too.

BTW, Party Mode is FANTASTIC when used for exactly that: a Party! Set up a PC running subsonic attached to a stereo, and log in as a party mode user, and people just FIGURE IT OUT!

Granted, running it in a "kiosk mode" Internet Explorer screen helps a ton too...

Glad I could help,

Glenn
