Still no love... changed the conf file to get rid of the trailing slash to the video directory and corrected the <> issue... Code: [Server] port=9032 #Full path to ffmpeg including filename\ #For windows: ffmpeg=c:\Program Files\pyTivo\plugins\video\ffmpeg_mp2.exe #For linux: ffmpeg=/usr/bin/ffmpeg ffmpeg=/pyTivo/ffmpeg [TiVoNet] type=video ##Full path to your files (No trailing slash needed) #For windows: path=c:\videos #For linux: path=/media path=/Volumes/HD2/TiVoNet ffmpeg is not showing it's running at all in the process viewer and no videos show using the port 9032 connection IDLE does give me some sort of strange error which may or may not be related: Code: Warning (from warnings module): File "/pyTivo/Cheetah/Compiler.py", line 1508 "\nYou don't have the C version of NameMapper installed! " UserWarning: You don't have the C version of NameMapper installed! I'm disabling Cheetah's useStackFrames option as it is painfully slow with the Python version of NameMapper. You should get a copy of Cheetah with the compiled C version of NameMapper. I'll be more than happy to write up a mac section of a tutorial once I get this working BTW.
