When I want to stream a show to my mac i click play show and nothing happens.



Then I looked in the log and it says streaming program can not execute. I use VLC client to stream.



About 3 monts ago i was able to stream fine. But now I think the problem is locating the streaming program (which would be VLC).



Before it had a long path address something like: application/vlc/rm/dj ( thats just and example). Now when i want to select VLC from preferences in DV Archive the address is now: Application/VLC or something like that. Really simplified.



How do i get VLC to stream again.



Thanks.

I'm not sure of the syntax on the mac, but the long version (or a variation of that) is what you need. The Mac exposes applications as Application/VLC, but that is just a directory in which there are a bunch of other files, one of which is the app itself.



I'd suggest checking over at MacReplayTV forums -- someone there has likely run into this before and can help out.

I am using Snow Leopard and VLC 1.1.3. The videos from DVArchive don't play or stream. I can only open them by opening VLC and then opening the files manually. Any thougts or suggestions? I have also been trying to use PLEX or XBMC to stream videos, but I have had no success. Thanks for your help.
