Before V0.0.1.7 Beta, Vidon.me Server was able to access ISO files via SMB.  This functionality is no longer working or is no longer available.  If it was removed, will it be brought back in the next version?  If it is still supported, how do I configure the Library to access files via SMB?

We just tested the Server again, but your problem didn't appear. So could you please describe your issue In more detail?

V0.0.1.8 Beta will only accept local paths (for example, "C:\").  UNC paths to network shares (CIFS,SMB) are not allowed.  Prior to V0.0.1.7 Beta, my VidOn.me server would access ISO files through a network share (\\192.168.2.58\MainChassis\Movies) without mapping drives.

This is the current Library configuration window (V0.0.1.8 Beta). It does not accept UNC paths:

This is the previous Library configuration window. It did accept UNC paths:  You could type a UNC path into 'Media Path' and it would be accepted.

You need to map the network drives to your computer first.

I did as you said.  I mapped a drive to the network share.  VidOn Server does not see the mapped drives.  I then stopped and started the VidOn Server service using the icon on the task bar.  Next, I accessed the Media Library Management page and clicked 'Add'.  The interface to add media changed back to the old style:

Please press Ctrl+F5 to refresh the Page. That's because your PC has old version cache.

I pressed Ctrl+F5.  The page refreshed.  The mapped drive did not appear.

I restarted the VMS service and closed and reopened the web page.  The page refreshed.  The mapped drive did not appear.

 

Where can I download an old version for comparison?

I am running Windows Server 2008 R2.  The mapped drives showed up after I turned off UAC.
