Description

the networked shares section would be greatly improved if there were a way to play videos from an FTP server.
I currently do this with my windows machine and it would be great to see it in showtime as I have a NAS that I would prefer to use rather than my computer with a DNLA server

I been using that feature for a long time, Next time check the wiki or the forum before you open a feature request o report a bug.

I know there is some Samba support (everything but discovery at this point), but being able to play from FTP would really be appreciated.
it would probably have to be a custom setup, like the way windows can play files from FTP shares without bother.

I'm able to play ISO, MKV, AVI,etc. from my 2TB network drive using the showtime samba client, I only use the DLNA (UPNP) for music and Photos.

#5 Updated by Andreas Smas over 7 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Fixed

Since Showtime have FTP support (somewhat stable since 4.3.266) now i'm gonna set this to fixed.
