Description

If I would like to have the Movian Chrome app be controlled by my PS3 it sees it but has no handles to control it.

It also hangs when you open a stream. You cannot control things.

After restarting it it gives a white screen saying NAcL start failed please repot this error to Movian support.

But I cannot extract a logfile via the webui of the chromeapp, there is no such option.

If I play local files from my PS3's harddrive then some controls are missing, but if you guess where they are they work. They pop up after a while.

Also controlling Android from the ps3 needs more love but I love the remote function so far! Simpy brilliant!

I'm not sure why you would control anything from the ps3 though?

Lol,well because you can. Lol seriously though, using the ps3 to control other movian instances gives us the use of its controllers to navigate movian anywhere else movian is running (my tablet for example). Idk, how often this scenario will be utilized yet, but I did try it (ps3 to control droid) and it does work minus some issues. :)

Sure, if there is a remote function why wouldn't it work on all devices to all devices?
Then you should add a disclaimer that you cannot use it on PS3. Quite silly.

#7 Updated by Rob Koni over 4 years ago

The Chrome app is still on 5.0.40 so I cannot see if there are any positive changes.

#8 Updated by Rob Koni over 4 years ago

It gives "incompatible remote version 3"

#9 Updated by Rob Koni over 4 years ago

It's a bit weird. If you decide you keep your PS3 or tablet on a stable version and the Chrome version is on the latest bleeding edge it gives incompatibility.
Maybe it should be backwards compatible?

#10 Updated by Andreas Smas over 4 years ago

Yeah obviously in the long term the protocol version will more stable. I'll only made incompatible changes when absolutely necessary but the (presumed) out-of-memory issue in #3060 required upgrade on both ends and if keep-alive is only active on one end it will just disconnect all the time instead. So it's better to make it incompatible.

Ideally this would have been fixed before the initial release, but hey, it's only available in Bleeding Edge yet, ie. you get what you ask for :-)

I'll upload a new version to Chrome Web Store right away.

Uploaded but it take up to 1 hour for it to propagate.

If you can password protect the movian remote function so that my roommate cannot control my movian?

Sure but I prefer to have it in a different Issue, it's not related to "Movian Remote does not work with Chrome app"
