    Default Unable to play Samba shared video files on XFCE

    Hi guys,

    Is this the right place to ask about OS built on SUSE Studio.If so then I have built an image on SUSE Studio with openSUSE 12.3 XFCE DE.After building the image I am unable to play the video files shared in windows systems.If I install the full version then I am able to play video files.As we have a restriction of HDD i.e flash size of 4 GB I have to build it on suse studio removing all unnecessary packages.Any ideas why this is happening.

    Thanks in advance.

    What kind of video files are this and what media player are you using?

    My guess is that you're just missing the right codecs.

    I am using smplayer2 and I am able to play when I copy the video file locally.

    OK, so your problem is the SMB access?

    Since smplayer2 is just a frontend to mplayer2, does it work if you run mplayer2 on the command line like this?
    Code:
    mplayer2 smb://HOST/SHARE/path_to_file
    If not, what error do you get?

    Please note that I don't have mplayer2 installed, but the above works for me like that with mplayer.

    RDP@Linux:~/Desktop> smplayer2 smb://nishanth-pc/abcd/Downloads/ab.mp4
    Qt: Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed

    Try "mplayer2", not "smplayer2". Maybe that gives more verbose output about the SMB problem.

    That error about authentication is GUI related but doesn't seem to matter, since the window pops up anyway and it works with local files.

    Well, that's also not really informative.
    libsmbclient fails to open the file, but it doesn' tell why.

    Could you maybe install "samba-client" (if not installed) and try to connect with that?
    Code:
    # smbclient -d 1 //nishanth-pc/abcd
    smb: \> cd Downloads
    smb: \> ls
    smb: \> quit
    And can you confirm that the above mplayer2 command line works on your full installation?

    samba-client is installed and when enter" smbclient -d l //nishanth-pc/abcd"

    As root user I get the following error

    "tree connect failed:NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED"

    As non-root user I get the following error

    "Session setup failed:NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
