    You might get more response to this if you posted in the StreamBaby thread in the Series 3 forum. I assume you have looked at the StreamBaby Wiki. I would guess it's related to your ini file.

    If you do double-post, please announce in this thread that you have posted in the other thread since double-posting can be very confusing to responders.

    What does your streambaby.ini file look like?

    dir.1=
    # ./streambaby --help for more configuration file options
    #

    dir.1=/path/to/my/videos
    dir.1.name=My Videos
    #dir.2=/media/disk
    #dir.2.name=External Drive
    # Ip address to bind to
    # most people don't need to change this.
    #ip=192.168.1.37
    # port to use
    #port=7290
    This is it. Should I have put in something more as a command.. I also included a 7290 port exception to my firewall settings. Thanks

    I saw where to move it to but how do you move the thread?

    The problem is you didn't set up the path to your videos, you just left it the default. Change the dir.1 line to point to where your videos are (ex. C:\Videos or whatever).

    Make sure you read the Getting Started document for more details on the ini file.

    AFAIK you can't move a thread although a forum administrator could do that. This is not what I suggested doing if you will look at my post again.

    Thanks to windracer all this is academic now!
