URL error problem solved when trying to play movies


Standard Member
I have recently spent a lot of time fault finding as I could simply not play any movies through yaDIS and was always getting a URL error about the location of the video file.

The problem was the HDD (internal) has to be labelled correctly in windows (I'm using NTFS) i.e. the dune_folder.txt file was showing:

storage_name = myHTPC
storage_caption = my-HTPC

However the actual HDD was showing in windows as 'Local Disk' or 'Removable Media' thus creating the URL error so I re-named it myHTPC and BINGO! everything worked. Hope this info is of some use to you guys or ladies.

I normally name the hard disk in windows as my-htpc too as I use windows to format the drives we install into the Dunes

Well done for finding it though

Interesting yardis had an issue
