lakristrolle is on a distinguished road
Default LAN connection error.

Hi,

First I'd like to say thanks for a great video player, BSPlayer is the only app that has consistently played all media files I have, HW accelerated to boot!

Unfortunately I can't get LAN mode to work, when I try to connect to a share on my Windows 7 PC it simply says "Error". Using Solid Explorer and other file managers I can connect and copy files without issue.

If I enter an invalid username on purpose BSPlayer does show an incorrect username/password error instead, so it does talk to the PC.

Is there a log file or some other way to get a more descriptive error message to help diagnose and fix whatever is preventing it from connecting to my PC?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Default LAN play in PRO version of BS Player on Android

I have the same problem. Trying to play from my own NAS server on Nexus 7.

Using X-Plore (from the same Nexus 7 device) I am able to access the server via SMB with no issues. With BS I get no joy.

Can anyone from the official support help as I see there are a lot of people with this problem.

[Edit] I have just checked and I can connect to my PC running Windows 7 and see its shares. I cannot connect to my NAS (Synology 710+) so it may be something related to it running a Linux.

Regards,
Tomz.

Please check new build, when it is released, if the problem is still present.

I have no luck with version 1.4.130 either. Exact same problem as before, and I've tested connecting to 3 different Windows 7 computers, without success. I wish the error message was a bit more informative.

Are there any relevant settings I could try changing on the tablet or the computer?

Can you change password to alfanumeric chars only and retry? ALso try build 131.

Build 131 didn't work either.

However after replacing the % char in my password, BSPlayer (both 130 and 131) can now connect and access the share.

I expect I'll have a hard time logging in to Windows before I get used to my new password.... I hope this can be fixed, not coping with special characters in the password is a rather annoying bug.

Anyway, big thanks for the tip! I can now stream movies from my computer and BSPlayer became even more awesome!
